      Great thread, thanks ladies.

      Oh and I think the British/English phrase book would be hilarious!

        Great ideas! I decided to do the canvas totes and I'm having the last names of each couple embroidered by someone I know. For the single ladies I'm doing their first name. I figured that way the have a nice beach bag to use for the stay and when they return home. I may also have a sun or starfish embroidered for fun.

              OK so we just got back. OUR friends and families really loved the OOT bags!

              Things that were used:
              The bag itself (canvas with our theme).. perfect ...not one person brought a bag! And they came out really cute. (50% off on vista print too!)
              The cups (steins)... they were HUGE hits. People not in our party wanted mugs, we gave out a few extras! (factory 21-ebay)
              Nips- mini bottles of captain morgan's and malibu rum were put in each cup.
              Beach Kits- gel san,mini chocolates,gum, scentsy tins, SPF, tylenol, immodium, tums, band-aids.
              I think people looked at the welcome letters and really liked them, but that was the extent.

              Things people did not use:
              Mini beach balls which was an added thing we had leftovers from our almost married reception.
              Deck of cards- never saw anyone playing with them.
              Pashmina's- not one girl wore hers.
              Postcards as our guest book.. Im pretty sure we wont get one of them back!


              I feel like Im leaving out a few things. But all in all. I think all you really need is a fun "beach kit", a beach bag, and the cups/steins to make a perfect OOT bag! Guests really love them.

                  Oh no! I hope my ladies appreciate their pashminas a bit more. I'm really excited about them!
