Soon2BeWed OOT bags stands for out of town bags. It took me a few days to figure it out in the beginning. at one point I though oh they mean loot bags but forgot the L lol. dont worry it takes some time but you will soon figure out the lingo.

Being that I sent a wedding contract in July via certified mail & it still hasn't arrived at the GP Jamaica, I WOULD NOT send anything ahead of timehissyfit.gif

Even worse, the postal service can't even locate it & its supposed to be the most secure way to send items!

I'm glad someone asked this because I wondered the same thing. We will have guests from other cities, arriving at different times and so on. I wasn't sure what the norm is.

 

I do think that it should depend on what you are including in your bags. If they are bulky then it would be a hassle to pack them and then hope your guests can fit them into their luggage. Some people have listed things that I think people might already bring (suncreen, after sun lotion, chapstick, etc). If you have items like this then it makes more sense to give them out about a week before you leave.

Great suggestion. I think that we'll hand most of them the night before we leave (the bags will have items that will be useful during the flight), and the rest to those who get there after us (who are coming from other cities on later flights. We'll bring the contents of those with us, prepare the bags when we get there, and have the resort place the bags in their rooms as a welcome surprise.

 

As a side note - I am doing up OOT bags for all my bridesmaids as their bridesmaid gifts. The bags are a lot bigger, sturdier, and will be embroidered with their names. :) Plus, they'll have a few nicer items in them. :)

We're considering handing them out 1-2 weeks before we leave. Most of our guests are local to us, and there aren't that many going to begin with (right now 24, but a few more could book). We're thinking about having a pre-trip dinner for our guests, similar to a rehearsal dinner for a wedding at home. This would allow everyone to do some pre-planning and get in the mood :)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
