OOT bags - opinions please!

I am putting together OOT bags for our guests as they are all travelling at least 3.5hrs to our wedding. I have bought a lot of stuff so I'm wondering how to present it.

I'm thinking of getting tote bags, but probably won't get them personalised so that people can use them after the weekend and I have tags to put on them that have a little thank you message.
I was thinking of grouping the items in clear plastic bags with little tags on each :-
- "in sickness and in health" with Tylenol, Advil, Tums etc
- "to have & to hold" with playing cards, tissues and fans
- ""to love & to cherish" with our plantable bookmarks

OR.....

As our theme is Marriage in the Mountains personalising the labels with things like:-
"Munchies in the Mountains"
"Medicines in the Mountains"
"Music for the Mountains" etc etc

Should I bother, or just put the items in the tote?

Thanks ladies, I love doing DIY bits so I'll go for it - I want all my guests to know how much I appreciate them travelling (especially because most of them are from England!)
