Is it OK to put Maxim magazines in the OOT bags for the guys?

Recommended Posts

I think its def. fine to put Maxim in the OOT bags. I honestly can't see why a wife/girlfriend would be mad or offended...but I think it's great your offering your guests some fun reading material.

First of all, don't beat me up for saying this but.......

 

In my opinion, i don't think it's tasteful. Especially for a wedding. If you have to ask "should I", I wouldn't bother. There are so many other mags to use instead.......why Maximhuh.gif

 

Something more appropiate may be a travel booklet of the place where you are having your wedding, or a "Local" newspaper from that country. Are you having mixed ages attend? I'm not sure if you are catering your wedding towards men, but I certainly would not want to open up an OOT bag and pull out a Maxim mag.

 

Sorry folks.....just giving my honest opinion.

I mentioned in my post, but we get several magazines. OK, Maxim, Money, & Kiplingers. I plan on putting in the OKs for the ladies, but I wasn't sure about the Maxims. I really had no idea how other women felt, so I asked. I was also pretty curious what the response would be. I'm already way over on my OOT bag budget, so it's either Maxim or nothing for the guys. I don't plan on paying news stand prices for magazines. I am putting in a travel booklet already. Wouldn't a local newspaper be in spanish?

It's not so important I give the guys a magazine. I just always pass our magazines on to someone else so I thought this might be a good way to do it. I pile them up and when friends come over I offer them magazines. Sort of like recycling.

You don't have to appologize for your opinion. This thread was started to get opinions. I have found it pretty interesting to see the varying opinions. If I was buying the magazine off the rack, I probably would pick something else. Actually, the main reason why we get Maxim, is because it was one of the ones on the list of $2 per year magazines I thought we might enjoy.

a little late, and you already have a ton of opinions ... but I say sure, why not?! wouldn't bother me at all, and it would give Paul (and I) something to read. i'm sure they'd apprecaite it. but we (and our friends and family) are pretty laid back.

Not to sound funny but would you feel comfortable putting Chipndale's in the OOT bags for the women with families attending your wedding. I'm sorry, but to me, some things are just inappropriate........especially for a wedding.

However, I think Money, & Kiplingers is a great idea. It's neutral and informative. Grandpa, mom, cousin, auntie.......everyone can read it.

I didn't check to see where you were having your wedding.......so yes, the local papers may be in spanish. I am having my wedding in Jamaica, so the local papers are in English, but to give you a heads up, i contacted the Jamaica Travel Board and they sent me 100 FREE brochures featuring all of the tourist attractions and local venues. I didn't even have to pay for shipping. I will be including that in our OOT boxes.

I actually feel a little weird putting in Money. When I have a stack of magazines & offer them to my friends, no one takes the Money magazines. I would worry they think I'm trying to push my money managing ways on them. But, the girls often take the Maxims.

It's interesting how the responses varied from people saying they wouldn't care, some people not even sure why it was even a question, and some people saying absolutely not. Even though the majority said to do it, I am not going to because if one of my guests happens to not like it I wouldn't want to upset them. I don't think OK magazine is the classiest thing either, but I'm putting those in.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
