I am planning on giving my guests little welcome bags when they arive and I just wanted to grab a poll of who is doing that & if that is common for destination weddings?

 

I also dont know if I should give them to guests directly when they arrive or? Would you put it on their doorhandle the next morning?..For a guest list of about 30, how much would someone spend on each bag? And would favors still be given during the reception?

Hi Lana,

 

Most of these questions can be answered by searching or browsing OOT Bags (out-of-town).

 

Lots of ladies have done them and most have posted pictures.

i'm doing oot bags and favors. i spent around $35 to $40 a bag. I did about 16 bags. one per couple or one per single. i wouldn't leave them on the doorhandle someone might steal them. i would hand them to the guest directly. i'm going to hand mine out before we leave for the trip.

We are doing OOT bags but not doing favors. We are only having a cocktail reception for our small group and then meeting informally for a later dinner together. In regards to cost I am trying to keep them around $20 but I will probably end up going over that. We are going to give them out prior to leaving to all of those we see and then take the remainder down with us to hand out on arrival.

I think most destination wedding couples do some sort of thank you gift for their guests. The OOT bags are great! I attended a destination wedding for friends of ours a few years back and they gave us all OOT bags and they were a huge hit!

 

We are going on a cruise with a group of about 20 people for our wedding. I'm trying to avoid doing an OOT bag because my friends did the same thing for their destination cruise wedding. Because of that i'm trying to come up with something a bit different. I'm leaning towards doing a pre-cruise care package and mailing it to them a few weeks before we leave. I think it may be easier than bringing everything along and assembling on the ship. Still not sure because there are pros and cons to mailing them versus handing them out.

 

I would for sure not leave them on a door handle because they would be easy for someone to steal.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
