When to give out the OOT bags?
Posted 14 November 2008 - 01:08 PM
We are heading to Panama for our wedding in January. Most of our guests are flying out of Toronto with us. Our flight leaves at around 6 am on a Monday morning, which means we have to be at the airport between 3 and 4 am. We booked a hotel in Toronto for Sunday night, where a lot of people will be congregating before we head to the airport.
I really don`t want to have to bring the OOT bags all the way to our resort with us... given the weight restrictions for carrying stuff with us on the plane. So, we were thinking of giving the bags out at the hotel on the night before departure. Then, people can just pack the stuff they want to bring with them into their luggage... and leave the other stuff behind in their cars.
I am so far behind on getting stuff for the bags.... but I think our bags will include a welcome letter, itiniary, list of tours, sunscreen, luggage tags, bug spray, cards, snacks... and a few other items that we haven`t decided on yet.
Only this is... how should I handle getting the bags to those who are flying from other cities, or are coming later in the week on another flight?
Any suggestions would be welcome! Thanks!!

The only thing I'd be concerned about is that if guests have already jam packed their suitcases they may end up leaving the bag behind just due to lack of a place to pack the extra stuff.

Depending on how many guests you have coming on a different day, you could give out most of your bags the night before adn then take the rest with you.

I talked to Air transat, and they won't allow us any additional weight or luggage, even though we're getting married south.
