Anyone order totes from Oriental Trading?

Recommended Posts

Christinamaria22 and I were looking at the totes on Oriental Trading the large hibiscus ones.. I have read reviews on the site that other styles of totes came to customers smelling of mildew... Has anyone had experience with them? and if so did they smell or no, don't want to let a couple bad reviews ruin a cute bag if they were one off situations... Help us ladies!

we got those and mind you I haven't opened all the packages yet but the ones we did they didn't smell! Plus I think if you got them and they did smell you could call customer service and do a return. I say go for it!

I personally think they look great and you get a bunch of colors. Ours fits:

 

2 towels (not the super thick but will do)

2 travel mugs

1 first aid/hangover kit

1 bottle of bug wipes

1 travel candle

2-3 squishy balls to play with in the pool

1 Welcome book

and maybe some other stuff..I haven't looked in the "trial" bag I made in awhile but it all fits and isn't jammed in there...I was actually thinking I hsould add some more so it didn't look empty!

Besides the towels all the stuff I posted filled the bottom of the bag...I guess I just have the mentality that more is better but your guests are going to be happy and not think "god this bag is empty! plus I think the size is good so they can bring it to the pool with stuff they'll need for the day.

 

As for the towels, my mom got me those at the end of the summer from the Christmas Tree shop...if you have one of those around you I recommend checking it out...I got my bug wipes there, my travel mugs, my towels, ohhh nail kit(tweezers, file and clippers). They were about 1.99 each and my mom couddln't talk them down from that...like I said they aren't the super thick lush type but they'll do so our guest don't have to fight for towels at the resort, they can just bring their own.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
