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.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
