OOT bags,... too much?
Posted 23 July 2008 - 07:50 PM
Whenever I bring up the OOT bags, he rolls his eyes at me and tells me that basically, we don't need them. He thinks they're excessive! He says we don't need to give our guests a "big gift". I'm not planning on making a big bag or anything, and I know we're on a budget. TRUST ME, I don't want to spend any more on our wedding than we need to. But we're already starting to hear the grumbles from family members about having to travel so far, and our whole reason for wanting to have it in Cancun was so that everyone could have a good time. I just really feel like it's the nice thing to do for all of our guests, so that they feel welcomed and special when they arrive.
If I get to do them, I wouldn't be giving any other gifts at the reception, just the OOT would be our "gift". Am I asking too much How do I make my FI see that these are special for a DW

Like above make a budget $10 - $15 dollars each to show your appreciation. There are plenty of sites you can find great gifts to add and just buy paper bags from the $1 store (some give you a discount if you buy in bulk). How many guest are you having? Oh I found cute discount favors a Unique & Personalized Wedding & Bridal Shower Favors, Baby Baptism & Communion Favors, Kids Birthday Party Favor Ideas - eFavors I got the cutest starfish wine stoppers for $1.69 which I saw double the price on other sites and they were high quality. Hope this helps
Great site! I found like 3 things I want! cheap too!

Cheaptote canvas bags are on sale for .99 right now!! Canvas TOTE BAG (think I'll start a thread about that to let everyone know!)
Then you just do iron on logo or whatever you want.
Morgan had a great idea of buying a big bottle of immodium AD and Tylenol and then making little paper packages on her computer to put them. She also bought plastic cups and painted each person's name on them which was super cute and super cheap. She has a lot of awesome do-it-yourself projects so look at her planning thread. http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t21764
Then you can whip up a welcome letter, there are plenty of 'print-out' spanish term things out there, pack some goodies from costco in there and call it a day!
I think you can get away with paying less than $10 per bag if you borrow a lot of the ideas on here. Plus, I'll do one bag per couple to save some $$.
