    Hello, I've been back for about a week from my destination wedding in Punta Cana, I thought I'd share what was used from my OOT bags (actually did OOT travel mugs instead). Our mugs were 22 oz from Discount mugs.com so they fit quite a bit inside.

     

     

    Used:

    the travel mug

    SPF chap stick

    gum (on the plane for taking off and landing)

    Nutrigrain Bars (early flight, not everyone had time to grab breakfast)

    Chocolate bars (all inclusive, all you can eat, but sometimes you just want some real chocolate)

    pepto bismol chewable tabs

    welcome pamphlet - mostly for common spanish phrases

    Motrin

    TUMs

    Emergen-C powdered drink

     

    Not used or not mentioned:

    bandaids

    propel powdered drink

    sanitizing hand wipes

     

    My advice...don't go overboard. Nobody wants to lug around a bunch of stuff on thier vacation.

      I gave them out in advance to all those that werent travelling in our group; and gave the rest out to our guests the night before our departure. That way everyone can carry thier own on the plane, and make use of the stuff (snacks) during travel.

       

      I'm not sure how much they weighed, but I'm sure it would have been a lot if we chose to ship them to our destination.

            ..and doubly excited about my OOT Bags that finally came in!!! I feel like it's Christmas every day getting delivery packages LOL ... Here are the OOT Bags I ordered for the single guys --the one with the palm tree and the ladies or couples is the Hibiscus flowers...The ones that are two tone with the black are for my Bridesmaids and Mom...I was really pleased with the quality ...the only problem is that with over 30 of them they are HEAVY!!! OMG, I have to weigh all themto see if I can cart them to Jamaica or if I am going to have to give them out beforehand....lol

                Kdoyle - where did you get your labels for your tumblers? Are they waterproof? Thanks.

                  I got waterproof labels for my tumblers from Etsy supplier davet designs. I love them!
