OOT bag contents - **Master List of Possible Items**

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I thought we could start a list of what people are putting into their OOT bags, ideas, etc.

 

Some ideas that I had are:

 

  • LOCAL SOUVENIR T-SHIRTS
"I *heart* NY" t-shirts

"LOVE" Philadelphia

whatever the slogan is for Mexico - anyone know??

  1. mini bottles of aloe
  2. hand sanitizer
  3. flip flop sticky note pads
  4. bug spray
  5. travel size bottle of sunscreen
  6. welcome note from us with the agenda for the weekend
  7. CD compilation
  8. photo album or frame (can buy from dollar store)
  9. lip balm

Found tote bags at 0.86 a piece:

Greeting cards, personalized gifts, embroidery, engraving, jewelry, gift baskets, canvas tote bags & more

 

Picture of totes:

I am FAR off from the time we have to do ours, but I thought with a list going this could help me and others that are a ways away.

 

Thanks!!

 

Emily

Hi.

Nice find.!

It's good to have another source for inexpensive totes other than cheaptotes.com. Like you, my wedding date is not until next May. But I am so excited about it, I plan on ordering samples of the totes now, just to make sure I purchase the right one....not too big, not too small...

 

Thanks

Stuff that I've not seen so far : I'm going to put in my OOT bags some plantable wildflower seeds wedding favors from Botanical Paperwork :

 

Paper that grows wildflowers - read about how it works

 

I'm rather green, I loved it ! The other "green' items in my OOT bags will be :

- some DEET-free mosquito repellent

- energy patches from Naturopatch of Vermont (to put in the hungover kits).

I think so...I was going to order a sample from cheap totes, just to make sure its not huge....you can order one for .99cents but shipping is like $5. SO you just have to realy want to see it....

I purchased my bags on cheaptotes and I am really happy with them--nice quality for the price. I bought iron-ons from them as well and ironed my save the date map on to them. I am super happy with the bags for less than 1$ each!

I'm a new destination bride planning and I was wondering how you all were getting the items and the bags down to Mexico. Are you packing them in a suitcase or shipping them down? I'm also planning a May 2010 wedding and any helpful hints/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
