When & How for OOT/Welcome Bags

Recommended Posts

So for those of you who took your bags to the resort and assembled them there. When did you give them out, or did you work with the hotel to put them in your guests rooms Or did you search each guest out and hand it to them?

We had a welcome dinner the night before the wedding & handed the bags out to each guest there. You could always do that if you're planning to have a welcome dinner or other group event.

We handed ours out as we greeted guests in the lobby. Many of our friends/family were on the same flight.. the remaining bags we handed out at our welcome dinner... organizing the bags to be delivered to the rooms can be costly (some resorts charge) and more often than not a HUGE pain, due to room changes, and relying on staff that often runs on "mexico time" or wherever you may be vacationing. Dreams in Cabo let us keep the bags behind the front desk until their flight came in. (We just brought them down an hour or so before then.)

 

We had a day to ourselves before the bulk of guests arrived and hubby and I just put the bags together assembly line style. It didn't take super long. Just keep yourself organized as you go.

I also heard that you must becareful giving them to the resort to place them in the rooms often there are like $3-$5 dollar fees for the placement of welcome bags in the room prior to guest arrival. I plan to hand them out at the welcome cocktail party.

This may seem like a silly question... but how are you getting all your welcome bags TO the resort? We were wondering about handing them out ahead of time. Isnt it costly to travel with them and all the stuff to put in them?

We were thinking of handing them out at the airport and meeting everyone there but not sure about luggage restrictions and having guests have to put their welcome bag in their luggage.

Any suggestions?

My parents are going down the week before us....we are sending them wtih all out oot bag stuff. they only take 1 suitcase between the two of them anyways, so their other suitcase will be filled with my stuff...that way we wont have to worry about packing it all ourselves!!

Delta and I am sure some other airlines allow 2 checked bags for international flights. Otherwise we are just going to have to pay for the 2nd luggage to bring stuff down in. We are limiting ourselves to one suitcase of 50lbs for all OOT bags and wedding decor... It adds up fast!

    • Hello, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!
    • Anybody getting married at the fives beach hotel in playa del carmen in 2020? I'd like to connect with others as we are experiencing some issues and misinformation with the karisma transition. Hoping we can all help each other!
    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned.
