I got this tote and the matching cosmetic bag for all my maids. I got them on sale so I couldn't resist grabbing one for myself too. I am very pleased with the way they turned out. I would have liked if there were more color choices but the overall look for the pink and brown ones I got is great. I really like the way the pink bag with the outter stich of bright pink and light pink inner stich turned out. The brown bags also look great with the all light pink writing and the green writing. I got purple and red stiching as well because those are my other maids favorite colors but prefer the way the other accent colors turned. The pink tote and pink cosmetic bag are both exactly the same color but the brown ones are a shade or two off from each other. You can notice it but it doesn't look bad. Overall, very happy with product and I can't wait to give them to my ladies.

I was actually rather disappointed when I received this product.The major problem I had with this bag is that there is absolutely NO support in the bottom. In other words, if you put ANYTHING besides sheets of paper inside this bag, the bottom sags. The whole reason I liked this bag was for the size and shape, and both are lost when the bag is used to carry something slightly heavy. I'm not even talking books--this thing sagged when I put my wallet, hairbrush, and cell-phone inside. I wish that there was at least a piece of plastic in the bottom (like you have in most eco-friendly grocery bags). I bought one of these bags as a trial-run, to see it in person before I purchased them for my bridesmaids. I am GLAD I did, because I will DEFINITELY NOT be doing so after seeing/attempting to use this product.

I love them!
from Austin, TX
These came in and I was so excited! They looked nice and the only thing I have to complain about them is that they don't have a bottom to give it support. However, I saw another reviewer say she got fabric and a thin piece of wood and made them herself so that's what I plan on doing! I'm so glad I got myself one too! I go the black with green grass letters.
great for bridesmaid gift!!

About Me Bride, Bridesmaid, Parent Of Bride/Groom
For the price I couldnt pass it up!! I purchased these for my bridesmaids. I love the design. Its a great sized tote. My only disappointment would be the color of my bags. I ordered coral since thats the color of my bridesmaids dresses. I was hoping to have gotten a true coral color, which is more of a pinkish orange. Instead the color is more of a reddish orange. Even on the receipt it states under color "coral - formely soft red." I just wish that would have been stated before I purchased them. Other than that these totes are perfect, especially since all my girls are coming from out of town.
My Every-Day Bag
from Cincinnati, OH
I use my bag almost every day to carry my things to and from work. It's great, I love the color, and I also love having something with my new last name monogram! The bag is very basic, but very functional. It is a little flimsy, (it has no stiff bottom or anything) but that's not a big deal. I might end up sewing in a small inside pocket for my small things; for now they just roll around the bottom, and I have to dig them out from under my lunch bag.If you want this bag, and I'd highly recommend it, be sure to watch for the biggest sales. At one point this bag was 50% off with free personalization. I believe that is the best it will get.
Cute tote but no bottom support
By az bride
The tote is cute and the multiple thread color options allowed me to make the totes personalized for my bridesmaids. I did have to add a cardboard support that I covered with a nice cloth to the bottom of each bag otherwise the bag had no structure and everything fell to the center. It was easy enough to do but required time.
Perfect Wedding Day Tote
By D in Cinci
This bag was perfect for myself and my bridesmaids on the wedding day. We didn't have a central location and needed to bring everything we would need throughout the day with us. The bag was definitely big enough to fit everything. And it's something that we all will use again and again.
The perfect gift
About Me Bridesmaid
It was the perfect gift for my bridesmaids!
Good value - IF purchased on sale
from North Jersey
If you purchase this on sale it is a good deal. It was easy to order and personalize. When the bags came in they (1) needed to be ironed and (2) were extremely flimsy on the bottom. I read past reviews and knew what to expect in terms of flimsy - however my family owns a frame shop and was able to cut a sturdy foam board to size to fit on the bottom. With the addition of a flat hard surface at the bottom they turned out to be perfect! I used them for bridesmaid gifts and the girls LOVED them!
Beautiful tote for the right price!
from Cedar Rapids, Iowa
I am giving these totes the the bridesmaids as apart of their gifts. I really liked how the colors are vibrant and the stitching is well done. I would have wished that these totes came with support in the bottom of the bag to keep it's shape.

About Me Bride, Bridesmaid
I ordered this product on April 24th, 2013 for part of a gift for my Bridesmaids and received them on May 17th, 2013. I am so happy with the bags, I almost went with the smaller personalized canvas totes but the reviews said those were really small. I am SO HAPPY that I went with the larger totes. They are great quality and looks just like the sample during personalization. I do not regret this purchase and I know my Bridesmaids will love it!

Don't waste your money
from Eugene, OR
I bought these bags for myself and bridal party. We had our wedding in Mexico and spent 10 days there. After 10 days the bag was pretty dirty. I washed it on gentle cycle and it completely came apart. I contacted customer service and since it had been on 45 days since the purchase they responded "if you would like to order another tote we will out of courtesy honor your original price and give you a 15% discount on your tote"...as with most brides of course I bought these ahead to time. Don't waste you money on something that is going to fall apart and they won't even back their products. 15% off may cover the shipping
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great Size and Style
Great bag for the price! You can tell from the bottom that it won't hold much weight, but it's perfect for my bridesmaids for my beach wedding! One thing to note- the colors are all a bit darker than they appear on the screen, especially the purple.
I am very pleased!
from Atlanta, GA
These tote bags are great. They are very big. I bought these for my four bridesmaids while they were on sale. The colors I chose match perfect. Some have complanined about there not being hard bottom in the bag but that was not a big issue for me. It is a qulity product. I would reccommend this for anybody! I am a very happy bride! They all will love this gift.
Great value, stylish & functional
from Frederick, MD
I ordered 3 bags for my bridesmaids in hot pink, robin's egg and light blue. Hot Pink and Robin's Egg turn out great - rich colors and very well made. I was not as happy with the third bag as it wasn't stiched as neatly and the light blue looked faded. I sent an email to customer services and they said they would be happy to exchange it for a new bag. That made me a very happy and confident in shopping for more gifts here.

Not at all what I thought.
By July Bride
from Marina Del Rey, California
I purchased these bags for my bridal party. I thought it would be a nice touch to have a personalized bag to hold the gifts for my bridesmaids. I was very disappointed when I discovered the bag did mot have a supportive bottom. The most frustrating thing about the bags were that one of the four bags was a completely different color and material. Three of the bags were a nice white linen with the customized colors and initials, however one of the bags was a dirty off white color and the fabric was very rough. Additionally there are small spots on the off white section of the bag. The colors are very nice, however the poor workmanship was very disappointing.

Happy with Customer Service
from Rome, GA
There was a glitch with the system with processing the price of the bags. I emailed customer service and they took care of the issue right away. I couldn't be happier with how they took care of me! I hope the bags look gre at when they get here!

love love love this bag
from Los Alamitos
My MOH's and BM's are going to love this personalized bag, it is big enough for a weekend away bag for them to bring everything they need,I am stuffing mine with a towel wrap, flip flops, a makeup bag and jewerly for the wedding day and there is still plenty of room.
I bought these on sale for a great price for my bridesmaids! I received them in the mail today and I love them! The color is better than the picture shown on this website! I bought the grass green tote & robins egg blue, with the black initials. They are well made and can hold several things (even towels or clothing). I def recommend them for any occasion or for your own personal use!
Love this bag. I was a little nervous about getting it.. because I wasn't sure what I was really getting. All was great except the colors. I think they should have the same colors for the bag, inital and border. And the colors that they have, are not what they come out to be. So if you order Red... expect a coral color. Not happy about that and it will be redone. Which they were happy to help me with.
Service and delivery comments:
Deliever was quick, I order on 8/7/12 and received on 8/20/12 Can't beat that!!
By Michelle bride to be
from Ft Myers Fl
This is a great bag for everyday and beach,& travel use. I am so glad I ordered it and I am now waiting until it goes on sale again and get 1 for myself!!I got 2 for each bridesmaid with their Initial & it really is a classic bag. This will also be good for gifts for friends and family at other times of the year. Doesn't have to be just wedding gift. I also purchased the small cosmetic bag to coordinate, it is small but can fit lip glosses etc. The sale price is awesome and makes it well worth the $ .
from Cancun, Mexico
I purchased 8 of these bags for my bridesmaid's during the semi-annual sale. I paid [$] with Personalization for Each bag. I think this was a great price and was happily suprised to see the personalization was stiched on. I would not pay full price for these bags, as you can get them at a great discount. 2 negatives are that there is no support in the bottom, and the top only ties shut. However, my wedding is a destination, and these will be perfect for 1. the BM carry on bags, and 2. beach days. No support necessary! :) I got hot pink, with hot pink and gold engraving to match my colors and it looks beautiful! A true great purchase when on sale.
from ELK CITY, OK
This bag is not exactly what I expected. It is soft and flimsy. I expected it to be a little more sturdy. However, the bag seems like it would hold up. I agree with other reviews complaining about the bag not having a hard bottom, it would be so so much better if it did. It would hold up better, and it would make the entire bag look better. The dimensions are a little deceiving because i had bought bags for my bm that had the EXACT same dimensions but this bag is much shorter than the others. I do like the bag in spite of it all.

I ordered 5 of these for my bridemaids! I loved all of them! I had an issue with one coming to me with the wrong monogrammed letter on it, but the knot took care of me! They sent out the correct one very quickly! This company is a pleasure to work with!!
What I expected
from Hilton Head Island, SC
I purchased 5 of these bags for my bridesmaids, all in different colors. I did all the letters and stitching in black. I am super pleased with the way they look. The only issue I had was that the Red actually came out to be more of a coral. Def not red. However, I kind of liked it better. Either way, it still looked really nice. Since the red wasn't completely necessary it wasn't a big deal. I even got one for myself, Bright green with pink lettering, and I love it!! I will be filling them with beach themed items (beach towel, flip flops, chapstick, etc). I am very happy with the look and even more so with the price.
Great bridesmaids gift
By older is better!
from Pittsburgh but Denver wedding
I bought this bag based on reviews. My colors came out very nice (lilac and chocolate). The bag is quite large, which is great for all the girls' stuff on wedding day. I read negative comments about the bag not having a stiff bottom. I solved that by buying foamboard (correct dimension to use is 17in x 7 1/4in))which I then covered with matching burlap. Now the bag has a removable bottom! Great price also as I got it on sale. Very worth the sale price. Also had to get one myself and for my mom.
Colorblock Tote, so cute!
from Philadelphia, PA
I ordered 7 of these bags for my Bridesmaids, each with their initals on them. My Bridesmaids will be in black so I did the black bag with black initals as well as the outer stitching in black. I'm very happy with the way they turned out and I know the girls will be happy as well! Also, I got them on sale! I'm filling the bags with a bunch of goodies. My girls can also use their bag on my Wedding Day to bring whatever they need.I read that someone wasn't happy because there was not a hard bottom liner, that doesn't bother me. The only thing I know will happen within time is the ribbon to tie the bag close will shred but it's a great bag and it's made well, so I don't care.

Poor Quality & Poor Customer Service
By Devastated Bride
from Washington DC
The bags are missing the hard insert for the bottom of the bag. Without this insert, the bags are useless and look cheap. After putting a small light item inside, the entire bottom of the bag sinks below the sides since there is no support. Upon contacting customer support, I was told "The picture that you see online, reflect it being on a hard surface, whereas the background was removed to promote the item". I find this extremely misleading and to say I am disappointed is an understatement. The mission of The Knot is to make wedding planning as easy and stress free for the bride as possible. It is now the week of my wedding, I am having a huge issue with an item The Knot provided, and not only are they doing nothing to resolve the issue, they are going against everything The Knot claims to stand for.
Merchant response: I do apologize. The description does not state that it is a hard bottom. We take all photos on a table and in order for our customers to have the best picture of the item, we remove anything else from the photo. This is not meant to be deceiving but to ensure you have the best photo of the item possible. I show we have agreed to let you return your items and have agreed to a full refund once the items have been returned. Thank you.
Best all-around Bag
from Charleston, SC
I bought these for my bridesmaids and one for myself. Great deal as I got them on sale (if I were you, I would NOT pay full price). The quality is excellent, bags are big & roomy, colors matched what was online (Navy & Lt Blue). I did not choose personalization, as I wanted the BM's to choose the color they liked, plus the gifts inside were personalized. I wanted them to feel like they could use the bag after the wedding for other things (I also felt like the personalization was expensive). All in all, a great roomy all purpsose bag anyone would be thrilled to receive for a great price!
