    Thanks for all the great tips! I have started filling up my OOT bags, so far I have insulated tumblers with straws (end of season sale at superstore!), custom door knob do not disturb signs, beach towels and flip flops for my bridesmaids only, glow sticks for the kids, and our bags we got at target(for 59 cents each!! honestly for that price I didn't care what colour they are...they don't say target or anything!), My mother in law bought sky lanterns for the guests to send off after the reception, but our resort will not allow this...so I guess they can just take them home. We will give everyone a welcome letter with an engagement picture. My FiancĀ© likes the idea of the hangover kits so I think we will add those as well. I'm still not sure if it will fit all into my one suitcase...I'm thinking I may have to bring a second one.

    I've been keeping my eyes out for discounted bags, so far no luck.

    I love the target bag. I saw this one at David's Bridal. I am trying to find a website that sells these totes that seem to have a plastic feel or waterproof feel. I have seen them at grocery stores and TJ Maxx for .99 cents. I would prefer not having a store name. I will keep searching but target is a great backup.

    Sorry for quality had to take a pic of the pic on my phone couldn't upload any other way. After reviewing looks upside down as well. My first post growing pains will read instructions now !

    Love all these ideas. Hobby lobby has great beach size canvas bags. They are normally 4.99 but if you use a 40% off coupon, they are affordable and are good quality!

    in the same place as the spanish for dummies I found drinks for dummies. They have about 25 different drinks and how to make them my guests are excited for them to take up to the bar and try out new drinks!! so just a thought since the spanish wasn't a big hit.


    Love this idea! Where did you find them?

      Great ideas. I love candy, so will be adding that to my bag as well.
