A Versatile Carryall
Presentation is key. A basic canvas tote is a great hold-all and is perfect for a wedding where guests will be sightseeing (think: beach day or city adventure). Bonus: Guests can use the bag later to tote groceries or gym essentials. If you decide to go with a custom design, steer clear of names or monograms. If you're just desperate to personalize the bag, call out your location, choose a motif that's in line with your wedding style or stamp a generic phrase, like "Plan to Get a Tan," on the bag. You want to design something your guests will use after the wedding. Whatever you choose, make sure it holds everything guests will need, plus a few fun surprises.
Play up your theme with a creative container. Pick a galvanized pail for a garden wedding, a wicker basket for a vineyard setting or an antique box for a vintage-style affair.
