OOT Bags Done and in Mexico! Long w/Pics/list

Recommended Posts

My mom took all of my items down for me (via car) and we assembled them outside our casita (much better than my little bridal workshop downstairs). It wasn't a relaxing holiday, but I could have been here in the cold so I will take working on the OOT's outside in the sun with a beautiful view over this 50 degree weather any day! So, here they are, they are all assembled with personal notes to each already in them and tagged. I certainly hope we don't have a big change in guest in the next 90 days!


I did 30 bags. The bags came from Walmart $5/ea. The towels came from Beach Towels wholesale manufacturer of custom embroidered monogrammed bath towel for corporate events

DIY Water Bottles (they have a message to guests on one side, logo in the middle and marriage facts on the other side). Bought water at Costco in Cabo (much more expensive than it is here) and made my own labels printed on water resistant labels from Labelsbythesheet.com. Large ones went in Welcome bags and small are for the cocktail and reception if people want water (we did 180 bottles)

DIY Lipbalm (used logo with Besos! at the top and SPF 15 at the bottom with our names). I acually redid these with the same water resistant paper as the water bottles so they look better now, but this shows the label layout.

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
