@becassidy I never thought about Ikea to look for OOT bags. Were they in a specific section of the store or were they just throughout?

    @MissJen3 I found them in the front of the store. There was a whole section of travel goods though (I was in the store in Cinci), and they even had slippers and things like that. I thought they would be there and searched forever before asking someone, they told me where to find them in the front. There were huge bins of them right before the checkout registers (make sense, since theyre "reusable bags").

    I showed them that link so they knew which bag I was talking about :)

    I know earlier somewhere some brides posted about using

     tumblers with water proof labels that were created from a person on etsy.  Does anyone have the link to his etsy store?  Also, what is the biggest hit for a drink container?  I am torn between a travel coffee mug, a tumber with a straw, and a sports like water bottle.  Any feedback would be appreciated :)

I also must say that the personalized pens were a hit too. http://im1.shutterfl.../rx=550/ry=400/


    where did you get your bags from?

    @becassidy - thanks so very much for the tip re Ikea for items to use in OOT bags!  Happy planning!


    @ng2015 - I plan to just purchase generic flip flops in men and women size, since they tend to be in a range that covers standard foot sizes (e.g., 6-9 womens; 10-12 mens).

    @girlinthecity97 great idea! How would you distribute them though? Like at the welcome dinner, ceremony, etc?

    @ng2015 - yup. I plan on putting mine in the OOT bags and handing those out (bags) at the welcome reception and will just pay the resort to deliver them for those that I have left over (e.g., late arriving guests).   Thanks for the tip on wedding chicks sale!
