I have a few vices… bags, shoes and dresses happen to be at the top of that list. I can’t help it. I know have bags I don’t know what to do with a dress full of dresses I haven’t worn, and shoes… well you can never really have too many. Anyway, tote bags are a really great gift to give your bridesmaids to say thank you- especially if you fill them with super fun things. They also make great welcome baskets for a girls  (bachelorette party/shower) weekend. There are so many bags out there, so I just wanted to share a few of my favorites with you here!

Unique Wedding Boutique by The Palm Gifts has a great assortment of  monogrammed, preppy and super pleasing bags in tons of colors with polka dot ribbons, stripes, etc. They’re adorable and you can customize for each one of your bridesmaids! Preppy Monogrammed Gifts also has a wide selection of similar products worth checking out.

I love Vera. Vera Bradley has tons of totes in a million sizes, but this one is right around “Affordable” and you can still fill it with fun goodies and not feel bad about it. These bags last FOREVER. I got one as a HIGH-SCHOOL graduation gift  and I still have it today. Trust me that was a long time ago.
