So many ideas, so little $$$... OOT bags
Posted 07 August 2008 - 07:45 PM
I've seen SO many wonderful ideas (thanks to this site) & I need to slow myself down because the 'little' things add up. However, I'm excited and I don't want to risk waiting until the last minute. I would like to knock out as many wedding tasks as possible to avoid 'crunch time.' I have this fear that if I wait, I'll be scrambling around looking for anything to fill the bags & possibly end up paying more money for items.
So my issue is... Should I guesstimate the number of guests and start purchasing? Or should I just have a little more patience and wait til we get closer to the wedding date (6/5/09).

For advance purchases, I would try to limit yourself to only the best deals. And I think it would be better to underestimate the number of guests, and then buy extra stuff later, rather that have tons of leftover unused stuff

Plus, we are getting married in Feb., so finding fab. finds closer to our wedding date just won't happen, not in Saskatchewan atleast.
I agree with Sunbride, set a price limit per bag, you can always increase it later on, or, if you find something really cool, you won't freak out over having one amazing gift in the bags.

Not sure if this helps, but look at your guest invite, the # booked, the # promised, and the # for sure not attending and get a close base off that. Not all of them (if you are short) have to be 100% the same. I know my Gma does not need the aleve or tylenol so if I miss that I can throw something else in last minute.
