Most people seemed to use the cups and the bags. We packed double walled tumblers with straws for everyone. We also saw people using the actual beach bag quite a bit.
Although I loved putting together the oh Sh!t kits, I am really not sure if anyone used the stuff in them. I know for sure done used the Aloe. We had also packed Tylenol, gum, lip chap, propel (this was used), hand sanitizer, tide to go, Kleenex, and tums. We also packed the kits for ourselves and most of the stuff we didn't use.
I made welcome books for everyone with indie on the resort, about Jamaica, and games. These were a big hit. Although I am not sure if people used them, they sure did enjoy getting them and lots of people mentioned they are a good keepsake.
The final thing we included were Id badge holders. I didn't realize before we left that R rio ocho rios, the standard rooms have actual keys and a huge keychain attached to them, so guests couldn't use the holder for their room key. I did see a few guests using them for tip money and other things thoug. Overall I think they were a great item yo include and we definitely used ours.
We packed the kits for ourselves as well not sure about our guests but we used the following out of our Kit:
Bandaids- the first day my flip flops cut my foot
Aloe - My hubby got sun brunt on the 2nd to last day
Pepto - we both had a little stomach issue on separate nights but no big deal
Hair elastic - I always loose these things
Lip Balm with SPF- we used ours everyday and I know that few guests also used it
Advil - I had a headache the second night
What we didn't use
Anti bacterial wipes (used at least by one guests, my sister's ear piercing had closed and my hubby's sister (who is a nurse) use it to sterilize a needle to re pierce her ear so she could wear the BM's Jewelry)
I wish we had put neosporin in the kits

Plus, it gives them something very relaxing to do and is really appreciated by your guests who are traveling so far for your big day!
That's actually not a bad idea! Thanks for sharing!

I just wanted to share a great site I found for first aid supplies and meds. https://www.firstaid...liesonline.com/ They have name brand and generic. I got IBU, antacids, first aid ointment and sunburn gel, enough for 25 bags, for $33.53, including shipping. I found a coupon online for 10% off. That was for the generic supplies. They do carry name brands like advil, motrin and pepto, I decided i need to cut corners where I can so I got the generic, but still great prices on the name brands also!!!
