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.

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
