    Hey Ladies
    I thought I'd start a thread to find out what items we cruise brides are putting in our OOT Bags. I searched this forum to see if there is a thread like this and I cant find one, but if there is I apologize. I've been working really hard on my OOT bags trying to figure out what I want to put in them. I think as a cruise bride I don't need as many items as the reg DW brides bc the ship basically has everything on it. So I'm going to put my list below and I'll put a " * " by the things I've already purchased and a "?" by the things that may be coming off based on my budget bc we have a group of at least 40 ppl. Can you all lemme know if you think I should scratch any of these items or am I missing anything really important Thanks in advance.

    -Bags (hibiscus ones from OTC for females and drawstring backpacks males)
    -Puzzle books (sudoku, crossword word search one per bag)?
    -Coloring books (kids duh)
    -Hand sanitizer
    -Room key holders
    -Travel mugs* (DIY ones from Dollar tree)
    -Pens
    -Note cards
    -Highlighters
    -Snacks
    -Gum*
    -First aid kits ?
    -postcards to send home* (free with vistaprints)
    -travel tissue packs*
    -homemade soaps* (I'm almost finished making them all)

    OK what do you think and can you tell what you're putting in your bags.
    Thanks

        -Beach bag (very simple in various colors)
        -personalized water bottles
        -snacks (chex mix, granola bars, dried fruit, soft peppermints)
        -sunscreen
        -tissue packs
        -tylenol
        -shout wipes

        I put the snacks in it because everyone is coming the day before. I am going to give them out the night before at the "Welcome Dinner" so I don't have to worry about getting them on board.

          I went on a cruise vow renewal for a couple and their bags were very simple, but totally unexpected as I didn't even know what an OOT bag was then LOL

          So we got

          *personalized t-shirts
          *a wine stopper and pourer which we still use
          *a nice note thanking us for being there
          *a timeline of what the couple would be doing, when the vow renewal was, etc.

          They also had arranged for us to each get our own Royal Carribean beach towel which I thought was super awesome!!

                Just thougt I would chime in on the OOT bags for your guest.
                My FI and I decided to give everyone passport covers, they are fairly inexpesive, I searched on the net wedding passport covers, But we did not give them in their OOT bags we sent out a newsletter as our STD's and then well all signed up and payed their money we sent out "passport" invitation with the covers. Also we are playing to do our favorite things in our OOT bags, along with some of the other ideas I've seen on line.

                Good Luck

                      Meg, I like the old one better!

                      FYI. If there are RCCL Brides, make sure you don't put candles in your OOT's. They aren't allowed.
