The pashminas-the women loved them, especially for late nights in the lobby, on the beach & in restaurants for dinner.
And yes, the travel mug was the biggest hit by far! Everywhere we went on the resort, my guests had their mugs. It was very convienent and well used at the bar!

The only thing that I second guess is the use of the monogrammed canvas tote as the OOT bag itself.
While I loved it & will certainly use it again & again, I wonder who else will really use it again, with the exception of my mother! While it made for a great beach bag as I did see my guests using it on the beach or on our shopping tours, I'd still love to know if it will get used this summer by anyone else. Maybe I should have gone with the personalized paper gift bag or god forbid, skipped putting my monogram on it & just gone with a generic Jamaica design.
Just food for thought for you brides to be!
Hey!
Just wondering were did you get your travel mugshuh.gif I can't find any I really like online that aren't expensive.

This is sooo helpful. Glad to know the sunscreen wasn't all that helpful. I was recently at a wedding where they used white gift bags from Michael's and stenciled their initials in gold. It looked really nice and wasn't very expensive. Also, don't forget to include water and snacks. I loved the snacks in the bags.... especially at 2 am when we got back to the hotel!!!!

Biggest Hits

 

Our last-minute decision to include the personalized 18oz Stadium Cups was DEFINITELY the hit of the week-- EVERYONE used them, and most ppl even brought them home!

 

Deck of cards (the boys even brought them on the catamaran excursion)

 

Beach Pail-- we used a Beach Pail as the actual OOT bag itself, and most ppl headed down to the beach to use them right away. (I promise to add pics soon) :)

 

Oh SH%&T Kits -- Bandaids, Advil, Safety pins, Scope and hand sanitizer

 

Hand Lotion-- Travel sized hand lotions were carried in everyone's beach bags over the week

 

Mints!

 

Pocket Size "Spanish for Dummies"-- most of our guests carried these throughout the week and practiced with the resort employees. It was really nice (and funny) to see them all trying to hard.

 

Misses

 

Starbucks Coffee-- brought at a nice touch for the coffee makers in the room (nobody seemed too interested)

 

Mini Pedicure kits-- most of the girls had pedicures done before, so they went un-used. As cute as they were, I wouldn't have added them.

 

Frisbees-- only came out for one day, not worth carting them to Cuba. They have a lot of beach toys available down there...

Awesome ideas! We just ordered our OOT canvas bags and put our palm tree logo and "Punta Cana" but no names or dates.

 

We did the same for the travel mugs we ordered. Hopefully people will like them!

Totally! We were actually plotting a whole beach olympics with Kayak races, football / soccer, beach volleyball and sand castle contests. It ended up being less official, but a SUPER fun group day!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
