    Thanks for sharing the list. Hopefully my MOH's will help me out as well, however we have thought about bringing bags that are foldable so that we can just put them in our luggage when we leave...

      For those who have already travelled, how was the Airport/customs when bringing stuff for OOT bags? I'm worried they will give me a hard time if I pack like medicine/food. Please reply! Thank you!

                Has anyone given their OOT bags to your guests at the air port? We were considering doing that since we'll all be at the airport 2 hours before the flight departs. Then ppl can just pick out what they want from the oot bag and put the rest in their checked bags.

                  Hi Charity Dawn,

                   

                  i plan on doing just that... our flight is 5 hours long... I'm already carrying down extra stuff for the actual ceremony and decorations down there  (the resort wanted close to $1000 USD) for chair covers and sashes and 6 vases with flowers.... for 30 people.... Plus I have the gifts for the attendants, my million accessories for the wedding (and we are staying for 2 weeks)

                   

                  there are 5 people who aren't flying down on the same flight as us, so I will be bringing theirs with us, but the others are all getting their bags at the airport... we are going to make sure they "check in" with us before "checking in" their luggage.

                   

                  Our OOT bags will have the following:

                   

                  all couples get 1 bag but each their own item as per the list below (except the doorknocker since they are in the same room), all singles get what's listed below

                   

                  (All in a reusable tote bag from Flip and Tumble) http://www.flipandtumble.com/shop.html (We got Heroez, Drops and Birdie mixture)

                  2 magazines per person

                  Organic Chapstick (We're pretty organic people ourselves LOL)

                  A personalized tumblr cup with straw (http://www.discountm...-with-straw.htm)

                  Kleenex Package

                  Some candy/chocolate

                  Word Find Puzzle Book

                  Natural Gum

                  Itinerary

                  Get to Know the Guests Pamphlet

                  Resort Pamphlet

                  Welcome Letter from Us

                  Customized Door Knocker (designed by an Etsy vendor designedbyme)

                   

                  I figure that way the guest has something to do while on the flight or they can stuff it in their bags before checking it in. ;) I'm already spreading the wealth of what I'm bringing up I'm tapped out with luggage allowances for me, my FI, and MOH and some family LOL
