Question about OOT Bags/Wedding Favors

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I have a question that's been puzzling me for a while. Do you have to give wedding favors or OOT bags if you are paying for everyone's accommodations (for approx. 28 adults/3 children - 14 bedrooms)? Can the wedding favor be the accommodations being provided for? If so, we've already let people know that the accommodations will be taken care of, but how do you present it as a wedding favor to them?

 

Thx!

I think paying for their accomodations is enough of a thank you gift. What about writing a letter to your guests thanking them for making the journey? Include a line about...in appreciate for traveling so far to be with us on our wedding day, we have paid for your accomodations at ________________. You could do a few luggage tags at pretty low cost to include? Or maybe something like a card that lists to most common French to English translations?

If someone was paying for my accommodations, I certainly wouldn't expect a favor or an oot bag!! I think you're being really generous already. I don't even think you need to say anything, although I like Andrea's suggestion if you want to include something.

That is more than generous! Wow. I would just provide a welcome letter and state just that (however you wish to word it) accomodations are paid for as a thank you gift and you guys saw their joining you guys as a generous favor to you both or something like that.

I totally agree. You are being extremely generous by paying for their accomodations. I like the idea of the letter explaining that is their thank you gifts. I think your guests will be very appreciative. and BTW can I come?

Thanks Everyone for the advice!!! I really like the idea of the thank you note. Is it redundant to write the thank you note since everyone already knows that the accommodations are being taken care of? I don't want to seem like I'm being "in their faces" about it.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
