Are OOTs a must? What are alternatives?

Recommended Posts

Love this thread! So many great ideas from everyone!

I'm starting early so that we don't feel the cost of everything at once. Starting some DIY projects as soon as next month! Can't wait!

So glad I'm not the only one to wonder about this! I am going to do small OOT bags, but I'm trying really hard not to go overboard... Sadly, not going overboard is NOT my strong suit.

I plan on doing a simple Welcome bag. My cousin included a bottle of local Jamaican rum and a nicely package of local coffee. I assume guests would bring the essential suntan lotion, advil etc. so don't want to pack extra stuff that may not be necessary.

We are sending our guests a package with a note expressing our excitement that they are joining us in Italy for the wedding. In the package we will send luggage tags, electricity converters, to do guides for Rome and Florence (our excursions for the wedding week) blow up neck pillows and money belts.

In lieu of a bag, I'd suggest getting guests 32oz bubba kegs to take. I got them for our bridal party and everyone lives them and used them.

Just got back from our wedding - we did beach bags (filled with goodies), and the bags were used nonstop. I definitely don't think they're a must-do item, but they were definitely appreciated by our guests!

I don't think they are necessarily a must, but we are doing them as a gesture of gratitude for our guests spending lots of time/money attending our wedding. I think for larger weddings it would be too difficult, but we are only having about 30 ppl making the trip. We are doing one bag per couple or single person to cut down on the amount of stuff we need to bring as well.

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
