flip flops for everyone
and ball caps or visors
custom beer cozy's
votives (beach theme)
dramamine (boat to our wedding)
water bottles (with our logo)
deck of cards
spanish book
brochure (vistaprint)

Probably a few more odds and ends that I am forgetting. People loved them though.

Many BDW brides have gotten their plain flip flops from Old Navy. Usually they are 2 for $5 & come in a variety of colors.

If you plan on buying alot & there is a store near you, I suggest going to the store. I bought about 35 pair & because I bought so many I was able to get a discount from the store manager.

Thanks you all for the ideas. Our wedding is a little over 6 months away and the little stuff, like the OOT bags, is starting to creep into my mind. I've jotted down ideas from here that I will for sure use!

Thanks for this thread, I agree too it's very helpful. I've gotten so many ideas. My wedding is exactly 1 month away today (30 days). We're also thinking of just doing the dollar store thing, some puzzle books and meds (like Tylenol and Dram) and maybe candy or snacks. I also like the idea of the travel mug. And the ugly fabric to distinguish your luggage from others.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
