Good morning


Dear readers everything will depend of destination weddings because it is a gift and is for remembrance then we want the guests to watch the gift at home, remember the wonderful trip to the wedding theme. So it is best to find gifts on wedding destination. gifts that speak of their culture and show their landscapes. I am a specialist in souvenirs in my country here in Punta Cana, and I can say is give something unique, every country has charm and a culture to remember. Are very fashionable autochthonous gifts at weddings. if you come here to punta cana, if you need help let me know please.




Best Regards

I agree, it would be nice to match the gift to the destination. My wedding will be in Bermuda, and Bermuda is famous for their pink sand. I plan on giving everyone a small empty jar to bring some same back with them.

I would love to purchase items that are traditional to the area of Riviera Maya, Mexico…but we are hesitant to go off the resort, and we figure anything that is for sale ON the resort will be much more expensive. Anyone have experience going off the resort and buying cheap items in town?

I loved reading all of the posts! Whew, just finished all 77 pages!


I also "borrowed" Nadika's signature! Hope that's okay, Nadika! I saw your quote and I fell in love with it so much!


Here's my tentative list:


1) Some kind of travel mug

2) "Medicine" kit:

    a) chewable pepto-bismol tablets

    B) OFF wipes

    c) advil

    d) powdered gatorade mix

    e) mints / gum (whichever is cheaper)

3) Phone ziplock waterproof bags

4) 50 Waxations Citronella Outdoor Tealight Candles for $8.99 (one or two per bag) on Amazon!

5) Clorox Disinfecting Wipes Fresh Scent (24 packs of 9 sheets, $26.52 for 24 packs on Amazon!)

6) Itinerary / Schedule of Group Activities (this will also be emailed to them in a Google Doodle so we can see who wants to do what)

7) List of possible activities on and off-site (may combine with number 6?)

8) List of English-Spanish-Chinese basic phrases

9) Who's who guest list

10)Mosquito / bug repellant bracelets



1) Lint Roller for $1 a piece?

2) Either Pashimas or Beach Dress Wraps (pashimas are $3.95 or $4.60 a piece, beach dress wraps are $3.30 or $2.523 a piece)

3) Powdered detergent in case they get a stain?

4) Powdered dish detergent to wash out the cups?

5) Canvas bags (have to see if I can personalize or not... want a good price, but I don't want them to bleed through)


Any thoughts guys? :)

Hi guys!


I just bought my OOT bags today! From Barnes and Noble - They were $2 ($1.80 with 10% discount) reduced from $19.95!


I tried inserting this picture of the bags - they are super fab! Check a Barnes and Noble near you to see if you can get them for $2!!

What I ended up putting in my bag:


- Canvas bag 

- Tumblers 

- Advil packets

- Rolaids - this was well used and much appreciated 

- Bug wipes - (Not well used, but would still put them in) 

- johnson & johnson First Aid box - people ended up using the box portion as a case for their room keys/money for tips/random objects. 

- Aloe - Funny enough, I was the one who needed it.

- waterproof Phone cases -

- Turkish towels - (I had been on the fence about this, but everyone used them and loved them) 

- Beach balls, but I wish I had actually done inflatable doodles instead, these - https://www.amazon.com/Swimline-Doodles-Inflatable-Noodle-Float/dp/B0037TSTUO

- altoids

- Tide wipes


I had ordered playing cards, but due to a snow storm, they never arrived. I wish I had put in chapsticks, but mostly because I forgot my chapstick at home.

Hey There!


I’m getting married on the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico in less than a month! This thread has been super helpful in figuring out my OOT bags, and most of the things in my bag other people have already mentioned. So, I thought I’d share the unique things I’ve found!!!





  • We’re also going to include a local mango or coconut juice and a mini bottle of rum in each bag to add some island flair!

I have seen every one of the rundowns and attempt to record every one of the bits from each pack that I think I require, however it beyond any doubt is pleasant to see everything in one place!

Hi all - we just got back from our wedding and did OOT gift bag​s, which were a big hit.  Here is what I did:


​Bags - we did these eco friendly coffee sack bags and I love the way they turned out.  We just put a palm tree/beach graphic on the front and the location of the wedding on the side.  No names or dates because we didn't think people would want to use them with our names on them.  https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1353895917


​Cups - These also turned out great but weren't used a lot at the resort.  For some reason, at my resort, no one else was using their own cups, so I think my guests were hesitant to do so.  Hopefully they use them at home!  We did put our names on these and the koozies below.  https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1345007866


​Can koozies - like the cups, these weren't used very much, but we got a lot of compliments on them.  https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1345924990


​Hangover kit bags filled with bandaids, advil, pepto bismol and Zantac.  Bag purchased on Etsy - https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1353895923, contents purchased on Amazon.  


​Playing cards


​Snacks - some purchased on Amazon, some purchased at Costco - Nuts & seeds, breakfast bars, fruit snacks, Goldfish


​I also got fans from Etsy for the ceremony, but we didn't end up needing them because it was breezy so no one was really hot.  https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1345007868


We put them all together at the resort and the front desk handed them out as people checked in for no additional charge.

    • Watches as a gift can never go wrong. Couple necklaces, or special jewelry can also be a great choice. 
    • As a wedding gift, necklaces are a good choice.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Amazon it is a paradise for shopping. I always buy from this platform, especially when I look for a present. I've already set up Amazon Pro, for advanced buyers, and for free shipping, lol. In fact, I bought a lot of different products here. I like to make beautiful gifts, and packaging means a lot to me. I usually chose all the parts of the gift and then packed them at home by myself. But recently, at the wedding of my friend, I did not have time at all and I decided to look for a service that can help me. As a result, I came across a good website where you can buy different gift baskets. jetgiftbaskets.com I bought her a Wedding Wishes gift basket, and she was very happy. This service has excellent service, as good as amazon has.
