    I just got an email from Yesica regarding handing out my OOT bags:

    Hello Leia I hope you are doing great!!!

    Yes if you left them in front desk we make a charge of 1 usd per bag and if the bell boys make the deliver to the room is 3.50 usd per room.

    Let me know.

    Best regards,

      We just met our guests (a bunch were arriving on the same flight) in the lobby with our bags and handed them out as they checked in... I wouldn't want them delivered to the rooms because rooms change (upgrades) all the time and chances are the bags wont be in the same room they're in so they'd get them later or the next day... also it was just easier with our pile of 25 bags to split them between Matt and I and hand them out with a hug and a smile!

        I initially wanted the front desk people to hand them out...but now I'm second guessing that. I guess I'll see when everyone is arriving. If they are all going to be arriving at the same time, then I'll hand them out. I just don't want to be hanging out in the lobby all day with all the bags.

          We decided to hand them out before we leave for the trip. This way we don't have to lug all the stuff down with us. I, of course, went way overboard and bought a ton of stuff for my bags (i hope my bags are big enough). plus i didn't want to pay someone to hand them out.

            Lame. I'll probably just hand deliver to the rooms myself. They charge for everything!!!

              This is what I am doing too. I also dont want my guests to double pack anything that I will put in the bags.

                We just handed them out as we saw people. We brought the last of them to our welcome dinner so everyone had them before the wedding.

                it is farily easy to give them out...it is annoying that they are now starting to charge for it but i guess if they didn't then they could have dozens of bags in the reception area...

                we left them at reception and those that came late got theirs at our welcome dinner.

                  So they charge to deliver them to the rooms, but not to give them out at check-in, right? I thought I had seen that before. I was planning on just having them hand them out as people checked in and bringing the remainder to the rehearsal dinner since I know not all of my guests are staying at Dreams.

                    Honestly, this does not surprise me. They were giving them out at check-in to my guests, and I went down each morning with a handful, gave the front desk staff a list and times my guests would arrive. I literally saw probably 25 bags (not just mine!) at the desk each morning. I'm sure this is a HUGE PITA for the hotel staff. I still don't think $3.50 is that bad... Or, like others have suggested, just hand them our yourselves as you greet your guests.
