OOT bag deliema...

Recommended Posts

You could really just keep it very simple and just have one small gift box rather than a bag. I contacted our visitor board and had them send us some information--for free! Here is theirs Official Charleston SC Visitors Guide | Charleston Travel Guide | Charleston Vacation & Tourist Guide

You can also look into getting dicount vochers from local places like bulldog tours or the aquarium. We went there last year and loved it! I think any effort your put in is worth it's weight in gold!

You could also make up some postcard for people and get them printed at vistaprint. If you need some photos I might have some that you could use.

My friend had her wedding at a local resort, but most of the wedding guests stayed the weekend. She ordered personalized Hershey bars that the hotel staff gave us when we checked in. The personalization was a piece of paper wrapped around the chocolate bar with their names and wedding date and thank you for coming. The ingredients listed love,happiness, etc. I'm sure you could totally print something out on your own computer on some colored paper and buy some chocolate or other candy bars at Sam's or Costco. I thought it was a cute idea that doesn't need to cost a lot. Plus, I was so hungry by the time I got to my room and didn't want to eat something heavy before the rehearsal dinner that I ended up eating the candy right away.

don't know if you've checked out oriental trading yet, but if you click on the sale stuff, they usually h ave stuff left over from halloween, incl. trick or treat bags as well as the hollow pumpkins used for trick or treating. it doesn't even need to be filled with 'stuff' - put maps and guides in there, add a bottle or 2 of water and some individual bags of chips or chocolate or some kind of snack to munch on at 12:25am and guests will be happy. i would, at least!

i think any kind of snacks for your guests to have in their room would be appreciated and used. When my sis got married she had a lot of out of town guests and we did little gift bags with chips, peanuts, cookies, chocolates, water, and gum. I travel for work and I hate when it's 11pm and I have the munchies and no change for the snack machine.

I think a bag with bottle water, couplle of snacks and a welcome letter is enough. You could go to Costco and to get water and snacks. I don't think you need to stuff the bag full but just a little something to say thanks.

I would skip the oot beach bag/canvas bag and go with a very elegant gift bag. maybe Brown or White. Print out your monogram or wedding logo and put them on there... or you can have them made. I would go very simple with the stuff you put in there. I would put info about SC and the area, pamphlets you could probably get for the city's information center or states tourist center for free. A wedding newsletter, and a few snacks. But dont get carried away with soaps, puzzle books, and the extras. I think the guest will rather get stuff that they could use.

If you really want to do the OOT bags, here's a site that has very frosted gift bags. I know I saw a pic of these on the forum but can't remember who posted it or what thread it was in. The bags can also be personalized with your name/date, etc. You can get 50 bags for $46 dollars, 75 bags for $61 dollars & 100 bags for $77 dollars.

 

Like everyone else suggested, throw some water & snacks in here & I think you're good to go.

 

Personalized 8 x 5 x 10 Frosted Poly Gift Bags

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
