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

Recommended Posts

Well this is what I have so far for my OOT Bags. My FI made a good point about the hand wipes.. there is only one! So, I'm putting those into the First Aid kits so they don't go to waste and getting the little bottles of sanitizer instead.

The day planners were 2 for $1.00 at the dollar store - The surfer dude's are for the guys and the flamingos are for the girls.

 

Everything actually came from the dollar store!! Love it :)

 

Just waiting on our bags from cheaptotes.com. We bought the neutral ones and are going to transfer our monogram on them ourselves!

If you really want to use the hand wipes instead of the bottles, you can look for the box of individually wrapped Purell wipes. There were more than 100 in the box so I was able to give several packets to each guest. I just put them right into the first aid kit too. I think I got those from Staples as well.

The box looks like this:

And each was individually wrapped like this:

We are going to include a book (not sure if we'll do all the same or a few) since we'll be at the beach and I know I always run out of reading material on the plane! We figured if there is some overlap it will also give guests that don't know each other well something to talk about. Kind of like a big wedding book club of sorts. We haven't done it yet so I don't know if it'll go over well; I'll let you know! We'll probably try to find a book by a PV author or with PV as the setting.

I have one thing to add that may be a little pricey but would have come in very handy - a small USB memory stick. A few of us had laptops so were downloading the picture cards from each other's cameras, but it would have been great to be able to put all pictures on one laptop and store the photos to a USB port for everyone. I am not that tech savvy so am unsure how big of a memory stick you would need, but I would think a 1G would have been enough.

 

Also, we used paper bags because I thought all of my guests were seasoned travelers and would have their own beach bags but many of them either didn't have one or forgot theirs, so I wish I would have spent the money on beach bags (for the women at least - the guys wouldn't have used them).

    • 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.
