    This is one thing on my list I am struggling with - and would love some ideas from you creative ladies. Can anyone post pictures of their OOT Bags?

    Thanks, girls!

      I lucked out with mine. I didnt want to spend more than 2 bucks on each bag but I really didnt want the disposable gift bags. I found these at the Dollar Tree and then visited a few more dollar trees to collect 34 of them. Yes, they were only a dollar each and they are pretty nice. I wouldnt use it as a purse or anything but its DEFINITELY nice enough for guests to use to take down to the pool or to the beach. And for the single guys, I am still giving them each one of these but of course they wont use them. They can give it away or chuck it since it was so cheap!!
      In the bag, I am putting some water, maps, a welcome letter, some pesos for cab fare since I am not providing any transportation and then maybe some chapstick, chips, salsa, and our favor cd that has some songs that will be played at the wedding.

            Ann I can't post a pic yet b/c I haven't gotten mine yet. I will either get the palm leaf bags or depending on how many guests I have I may do the luggage that Christine posted on another post. (I fell in love with them) If I don't do either of these ideas then I will do a plain gift bag (like the kind you get in Hallmark for someone's b-day) and place a monogram on it along with some tissue paper and call it a swag bag (so that my guests can feel like celebrities). I am going to include the following things in my bag:

            1. Friends/Sex & The City DVD
            2. lip balm (thanks to your great idea)
            3. Water bottles with custom made labels
            4. plastic toy water guns
            5. medicine
            6. mini suntan lotion
            7. flip flops (either in this bag or in a basket at my reception)
            8. disposable camera
            9. custom t-shirts (only for the girls)
            10. a double CD (one side with songs my FI likes and one with songs I like)
            11. the picture makeup bags (but only for my BMs)
            12. Koozies (only for the guys)
            13. terry cloth cover ups from Target (only for my BM)
            14. I may get cheap sunglasses from chinatown for the guys
            15. I am going to make my own celebrity magazine (modeled after US Weekly)with news about all my guests including pics. I thought it could be fun to update everyone on what's been going on with everyone's life.

                I have no clue how many guests I will have. Both our families have pretty much disowned us for having a DW so I doubt that anyone besides our parents will be coming to this. But we do have lots of friends who said they would come, so we'll see.

                      What do you mean YOUR not creative enough?!! Your so creative. Look at your gorgeous STDs. You can totally use a computer program to do a layout and just use pics and print. You could do People En Espanol or Hola! or something like that. And I know Spanish people love soap operas and the gossip that goes along with it. You could use soap opera names as titles or put a section called El Gordo Y La Flaca and put fun facts about your guests. I'm sure they would love it. And I am the least creative person on this board, if I can do it, anyone can.
