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

Recommended Posts

i plan on doing one bag per couple or one per single except adding 2 tumblrs, 2 koozies, etc. im sure they can share the suntan lotion, etc. 


Are you guys giving one to your bridal party, parents, sibs etc? Skipping it? Or giving them a special one?

What a helpful thread!! Initially I wasn't planning on putting travel mugs in my OOT bags but after reading through all these posts I've decided it's a necessity at an all-inclusive resort!


Here's what I have so far-

-Jute travel bags that I designed to say Cabo San Lucas with a picture and our date from discountmugs.com - I didn't personalize them too much because I'm hoping my guests will use them again

-personalized wedding koozies from totallyweddingkoozie.com 

-mini flipflop notebooks and palm tree pens from oriental trading

-flipflop cellophane bags that I'm going to attach a note to that says "Oh Shit! Kit" which will contain:  

advil, sunscreen, aloe, tums, tissue, shout wipes, bandaids and SPF chapstick

-Welcome letter


-Map of  Cabo


I'll be adding

-the free mini language translation book that was earlier noted in a post-What a great find!

-Meet the Guests list


Where did you find the map of downtown cabo?

do you find that guests like the luggage tags? I see a lot of people doing them, wondering if it is worth it

Anyone that had a wedding in Jamaica find the off wipes useful to their guests? I took out the sunscreen from the list because I know guests will bring their own.

what a great thread! I recently went to/helped plan a destination wedding and the things we used most was the motrin, tylenol, etc and the nice insulated travel mugs (we went to the bars and they made our drink right in the cup for us!) we also had a bug bite relief stick that went with us everywhere we went! really helpful!

I saw some people were including luggage tags too, but we were sent luggage tags along with a little newsletter about a month before the wedding so we were able to use the luggage tags on the way there too! and everyone I saw DID use them! so that is not a waste of $$!

we also had flip flops, crossword puzzle book, spanish for dummies, and a few other things but honestly, we hardly used any of it! really great ideas, but not totally practical! (plus, most people brought their own flip flops, beach bag, etc.)


if you are working on a tight budget, i'd say skip the little cute stuff and put in some more medicine! betweeen the drinking and eating food from a different country, almost everyone had some minor tummy issues and we were really glad we had some stuff to combat it!

oh! I almost forgot! the entire wedding party ended up doing an excursion to the Mayan Ruins and because it is in a national park, we weren't allowed to bring regular sunscreen- only natural sunscreen. it would have been really nice if the bags included a bottle of natural sunscreen for the day trip! (because it was hard to find and a little expensive!)

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
