How much is your OOT bag costing you?

Recommended Posts

So far I've purchased a 4x6 picture frame for each couple, about 10.00 each, and I'm going to add Tequila and a shop glass for the guys and maybe the pashmina wrap for the gals, for Cain's Ma we added a few extra stuff. So by the time it's all said and done,,, hmmm maybe an average of $20.00 per person. But remember were only having about 10 people attend..

I'm starting to work on our oot bags and i think my fi budgeted for $50 a room. he always does highest possible cost so he knows but I plan on staying way under that.

 

ok couple of questions

 

1. we have a couple of guy friends staying in rooms. I wasn't going to make them a bag? Or should I?

 

2. about the koozie's should I get one for each person coming or one per bag? for people that have already gotten married. does everyone need one and do people use them at all?

Only a few people used ours in Mexico. But if you are going to do them, I would for sure do one for each person. I did one bag per couple, but put two koozies, 4 packets of Advil tow bottles of sunscreen, etc...

I had the same question, since Paul does have some bachelor friends. I was thinking of doing something like this instead ... shoulder back pack, or maybe just not doing a bag at all and just giving the items to them in some other kind of bag (disposable).

ann the shoulder back pack is cute! I like that idea! Otherwise I was thinking some sort of paper bag, guys don't care and honestly probably wouldn't notice.

I haven't actually outlined price yet, but from the prices I have looked at...it will be around $25 per couple. We are putting in cameras to take pictures of thier favorite part so we can enjoy their moments too, personalized tequilla shooters, candy, word puzzles for the plane ride, advil, pepto, and a few other things, I can't think of right now with out my notes :)

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
