I bought most of our filler items at the Dollar Store and the travel size section at Target. I also got our bags for $2.50 each at the Target section. I only had 15 bags though. Overall I think I spent around $150 for everything.

have you already bought the bags?? I JUST (like 5 minutes ago) bought my totes from cheaptotes.com for 69cents EACH!! These are quality cotton canvas totes that your guests can actually use while on their trip! I'm going to iron on our logos on each of the bags to personalize them..

also,.. i'm looking into companies donating items.. (little promo first aid kits, etc) we'll see if that works! I'm on a tight budget too!!

We are on a pretty tight budget as well....

 

We got our OOT bags at Dollarama... they were $1 each and can hold a ton.

 

To fill them up, we're getting/ have gotten most of our items from the dollar store and Costco. We're including a welcome letter, itinerary, list of activities at the resort, and spanish-phrase cheat-sheet that we're doing up ourselves. We're also including little packs of tissue, mini hand sanitizers, travel wipes, mini sewing kits, gum, mini chocolate bars, condoms (for the single boys), colouring books and crayons for the kids, and maybe a few other items..... We are putting one 'more expensive' item in each bag - probably a travel mug - that I'm still looking for, and hoping to pay between $5 & $10 for (that will get used at the resort by most, hopefully). We're putting luggage tags on the outside as gift tags.

 

To save on costs, we're doing one bag per couple... when it's an individual item we'll put 2 in each bag. We're only doing individual bags for the kids, and single guys.

 

Some great websites out there are:

1) Cheap Wedding Favors - Cheap Personalized Wedding Favors - Bridesmaid Gifts

 

2) My Store Supplier - Wholesale General Merchandise & Novelty Items!!!

 

Hope that helps, and enjoy planning! :)

totally!

 

all I am going to do is buy the iron on paper, and print my logos on it.. then cut them out, place them on the bags, and iron over them!!

 

i did this in high school and college for a lot of our events we use to do, so it is easy enough to do! :)

 

 

on a side note--Rob&Sue have GREAT ideas for the OOT.. I've decided to buy water down there and preprint personalized water labels to put around them and put in each bag..

Oriental Trading Co is a great site to get stuff for OOT bags. Alot of the time they are in units of 12 to order. Depends what you are wanting to put in the bags I guess.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
