My OOT Bags~ the big hits and the things that weren't used

Recommended Posts

I am just now planning my OOT bags. We are getting married in florida keys so international travel isn't an issue and our hotel is not all inclusive. I ordered gift bags with a palm tree on them from oriental traders and am planning one per room. Hotel won't let me personalize them at all so all contents will be the same. Here is what I am planning: 1) two bottles of water, not personalized, straight from Costco 2) bag of potato chips/pretzels 3) nutrigrain bar 4) key lime candy 5) newsletter type welcome sheet which will list the bridal party (we aren't doing programs) and area restaurants and attractions 6) hotel map and newsletter of events I thought about adding sunscreen, bug spray, motrin and tissues but haven't decided. Most will likely bring sunscreen and bugs will likely not be too bad late October (hopefully). We are probably just bringing a couple of large bottles of off for people to use if needed. Tissues are more for the wedding, but I don't want to have a random table with tissues on it. I was thinking about maybe putting stickers on each item to personalize it. Anyone have any cute saying for snacks and water ? I have seen plenty for tissues.

I ordered 22 oz stadium cups and I didn't realize how small they really are! I'm kind of bummed because they are custom and they won't take them back and I leave in a month. I went with a general logo so not everything said our names and the wedding date on it..but these really aren't the big souvenir cups I was hoping for :( just a warning for others thinking of ordering!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
