I would probably do more but with such a large group everything adds up fast. NOt to mention there will be 100+ people coming to the wedding so they will all get OOT bags. Any suggestions on websites for reasonably priced dresses or gifts for the bridal party??

          I know exactly what you mean! It is very easy to get caught up and go overboard with the OOTs Check out Walmart, thy have insulated bubba kegs in sale right now, the 18oz is only $3, $4 for the 34oz and $5 for the 52oz! These are amazing deals. You could do the 34 or 52 oz mug with. Few little things tucked into it and it would be more than enough. I would suggest the mug and maybe a key card holder or something since you can make these pretty inexpensively! If I were to do my OOTs over I would do just our mugs and our wedding week survival kits but the kits were likely the our most expensive item as this meds and such add up! At least by doing the mugs you are giving the guests a "favor" that they can use while away and take home for use there as opposed to spending the same amount on something that will either get tossed or never used! Good luck


          I've been looking around, but everything is so expensive and adds up when you're having a lot of guests. We're expecting around 50. What stuff did you put in your OOT bags??

            Let's see if I can remember:

            we did a buffalo trip on the weekend and found bubbas in the clearance section, so all of the guys got the big ones 52 oz, and the girls got 32 oz, kids over 7 got 18 oz

            bath and bodyworks hand sanitizer

            body wash

            sunscreen

            kleenex

            first aid kits

            pen

            mints

            aloe gel - avon

            mini candles - bath and body works

            little face cloths for the kids, that you put in water and they expand or something equally silly from dollar tree

            dive toys for kids - 3 pk/$1

            notepads for the kids

            little bags for the kids from the children's place - very cute

            it's crazy, and honestly if I wasn't leaving on Sunday, there probably would have been more stuff, it's taken all of my energy not to try to think of everything, but now I don't care as much! Hahaa!

                Yeah i actually called and spoke with someone there. They will offer an additional 20% off but of course the dresses I like are all still 120-160 even with the discount. I think I am just going to have to look into ordering them from China. Thats the only way I think I will get the dresses for a reasonable price.

I'm not sure about what sizes they have but hey it's worth a shot right!! Especially if you have to buy 10 of them!! Good luck!!!!

                  Those are really pretty. Thank you for sharing. Once I start searching for jewelry I will definately be contacting you. Right now i'm pretty focused on the dresses and the what the guys will be wearing.

                    Sounds good! I definitely understand the dresses need to come first. If you have any questions just let me know :)

                      Another idea...(this is what I did) is to check Overstock.com. I found my bridesmaid's dresses on there and everyone loved them. The great part...they were $50, re-wearable and a color that popped! No one ever had any idea that they weren't "bridesmaid's" dresses and it saved everyone quite a bit of money :)
