Following in the footsteps of Miss Sundae, we bought our OOT bags from cheaptotes.com. The first totes that I ordered were entirely too small (math = not Miss Hydrangea’s strong suit). So they happily exchanged them for another type of bag and we opted to get these black and white reusable grocery tote bags:
They were a little pricier then the others, coming in at $1.29 a piece, but we have very few OOT bags to create, so we only purchased 25. Luckily, they came in handy for my bridesmaids gifts, and I still have some leftover so I can have cute totes for when I go grocery shopping—yay for no more plastic bags! Some of the padrinos in our wedding happen to have a screen printing company (they do embroidery as well), and they were kind enough to print our monogram on all of the bags. I have to warn you, if you chose to go this route, that because of the type of material these bags are made of, the screen printing process can’t be done as well because of the heat. Therefore, there’s a chance that the monogram will one day fall off, but I’m so happy with how they look for now.
Each bag will contain two water bottles, various snacks that I am wrapping in cellophane bags with our monogram stickers to keep them closed, a copy of the Dallas CVB (Convention Visitor Bureau) Magazine, and a TRAVELHOST magazine.
