My first completed OOT bag!!!

Recommended Posts

My order from Oriental Trading came in today so I was able to complete my first OOT bag! Here is what they will all look like once they are filled (except I forgot to put in two cups- I'm giving one bag per room)

OK magazine from our subscription. I'm saving them until the wedding.

Cup with name painted on it


silly hairflowers (OT)

3 riviera maya postcards (vistaprint)


The bags are the large multi-colored totes from OT. They are real cheap, but they are a great size for a beach tote. I think they will make good reuseable grocery bags after the wedding. Even though they are cheap bags, I don't think they will fall apart. I like that they are super lightweight for packing.



Just about everything was used by someone. I think the most useful thing in the bag was the hibiscus coin purse. I saw several people using them to hold their keycard. I always had mine with me to hold my key, some ones, and my chapstick.


I saw several people using the cups. The hotel cups were tiny.


Most of the ladies wore thier hairflower at some point. it always made me laugh to see one of them with it on. It was just something silly.


I think most people used the locks too. I know some guests used the safe, even though we told them how the hotel staff can rob them. A couple (not with our group) had their safe robbed while we were there. They were at the front desk upset about it. They found out right when it was time for their shuttle to leave.


We met most of our guests when they checked in & gave them their gift bag then.

kind of creepy looking, but the cheapest sticky note pads I could find. I wanted sticky ones so they could post notes on each other's door.

I plan on having these sitting at the AHR for all the ladies who want one. I might give them out in OOT bags too. My mom loves putting flowers in her hair 

Very nice, Morgan. Your guests will feel very welcomed! Thanks for sharing all your terrific ideas. Have you got anything for the Cancun airport we can "borrow"?!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
