OOT... What did your guests really use?

Recommended Posts

Just got back. My guests loved the travel bags. They all appreciated the welcome booklet with wedding info. I think that is a must. Try to include photos of people attending. All the guys liked the Wal-mart Sample Travel Packs.(4.99 each) Everyone used their bag and thermal mugs. Also everyone used their sunscreen & aloe burn lotion. However, we passed out the bags before the trip. Therefore, they only brought what we bought them. If you plan on passing out the bags at you hotel or airport, I would not bother with purchasing sunscreen. They would have brought their own.

 

Overall, our best purchase which everyone used and some people were even trying to borrow others was the "Tide To Go" pens. Everyone had Salsa, tomato sauce or a fruity drink spilt on their clothes at some point during the vacation.

Alright... so, out of everything in our oot bags here are the things we know got used...

 

MUGS! Everyone used theirs and the bar tenders really enjoyed them! It was fun!

Some people used the totes, but not many actually.

Suntan lotion! turns out people forget how hot the sun was! Not to mention it's a lot nicer to carry a little travel size on around with you instead of the big tubes.

the SPF lip balm - savior to many, including myself!

Shout wipes, those came in handy

First aide kits... lots of blisters!

Germ X

Imodium AD

Beach balls, beach buckets & accessories, squirty fish, and little footballs.

 

That's what I saw being used. I'm sure the medications got used too... I just didn't know!

Thanks for letting us know! I really wanted to do beachballs/footballs/squirt guns of some sort for fun... but wasn't sure if guests would actually use them. So nice to know! : )

I plan on including:

Aloe/After-sun lotion

Personalized koozies~2 per bag(we are not at an AI, we are on a cruise that will serve bottles/cans)

Luggage tags made from plastic coasters I found at the $1 store

A box of mints

A welcome brochure that includes the room #'s to all guests and wedding day info

Ok - based on what I have read on this site (which is a LOT :) Here's what I am putting in our bags:

Sunscreen - I think the little tubes will be easy to carry around

Aloe Gel - found travel sizes on AllTravelSizes.com

Lip Balm w/sunscreen - Avon (on sale!)

Stadium Cups w/logo - can't afford mugs/no room to pack mugs

Cocktail Mix Packets - personalized, will be good for in-room liquor dispensers at our AI

Decks of Cards w/logo

Spanish for Dummies - pocket edition

Welcome brochure (still need to create this...better get going :)

 

For budget reasons - I am using gift bags that I will attach a cute tag to with our logo/welcome note. I for some reason am not a fan of canvas bags (unless they are big enough to carry my groceries - which would be too big for what we are putting in them)- and couldn't find anything else that I liked.
