        Our OOT bags was a massive hit!!! Everyone used them over the weekend which helped the guests recognize each other. And made me feel great after spending quite a few cold days outside in London spray painting them! There were other people there for weddings but ours stood out sooo much. Make them individual rather than just buying any old tote. 

        Secondly, I did a face book of the guests (can be seen in the pic hanging off the bags). It was great for everyone to know who everyone else was. A lot of my family hadn't met my step-daughter so it was great that they knew who she was before meeting her. 

        Third, candy. I put in Pop rocks and Ring Pops. 

        I put purple or lilac shawls in all the bags (our wedding colors). At night the ladies wore them when inside air conditioned restaurants. 

        Our favorite shower gels - just because. 

        And for those who had kids we put in floaties, goggles and coloring books. The kids used all of them!!!

        A few people complained of stomach pains so the emergency pack should have been helpful.

        Watches. Everyone wore them but ours were water resistant NOT water proof. So a few guests watches broke in the first day or so. Only buy water proof ones. 

         

        Not used or not seen used:

        Emergen-C packets

        Game books like Suduko and cross words - people would rather swim

        Snacks?!? I'm hoping they ate the Scottish Biscuits but we're not sure. 

         

        Hope this was helpful! 

         

        Oh, and for those looking to put the large mugs in there bags. I saw quite a few people carrying them around which I presume were guests for other weddings. Go for it!! If you know your group are big drinkers than go for it! Mine weren't (with the exception of 2 people) and it wouldn't have been worth it.

          http://www.first-aid...medications.htm

           

          It's got name brands at super affordable prices. I'm going to order Advil, Pepto, bandaids and such from here. Hope it's helpful!!

          Thanks for sharing....these prices look good!
