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

Recommended Posts

I have never posted here, but my fiancé is getting upset because our OOT bags have taken over my life. I have all kinds of stuff going in ours. Right now I'm trying to convience Jim to get beach towels "as a filler". I bought L.L. Bean bags in August and Www.minims.Biz has become my best friend. So far we have, BBW caribbean escape pocket bac, Caribbean escape candle, wet ones, toothbrush and toothpaste (my brother always forgets his), 30spf, aloe Vera, Ben's bug spray, q-tips,tums, tylenol, aspirin, advil, imodium, tide pen, travel pack of Kleenex, band-aids, coffee, Cruzan rum, personalized travel mugs and gum. I also have to type up a welcome letter, thank you card, an itinerary, map of St. John, and little notes for our vow themed OOT bags.

at this point, I'd advise totaling what you've spent this far and compare that against how much you were either planning to spend (or what you think is "reasonable" per person) and then decide on the beach towels. our bags will look empty, but each one has a HUGE value worth of stuff in it. and they'll get filled when guests use them to transport towels from the resort.

 

honestly, tissue paper is a good filler, too. I'm a bit on the side of your FI here - just try to finish them up and if you get more time (or $$$) later, you can go back to it.

Thank you so much! This was an amazing help. We are going to do the monogram totes in recycled material, mugs, cards, band aids, flip flops (we are asking for size on our rsvps),Barocca, tums, and advil. Any suggestion on how to or companies that will make our logo or if we design it how to get it onto our totes... we are also thinking about doing up some bags for the children attending any filler ideas...

Biggest hit in our OOT bags, the umbrellas, looking at the weather forecast I saw rain and found colour coordinating umbrellas at the last minute and put them in the OOT bags the guests loved them and used them at least once a day while we were there!

I'm just starting to get items for our bags and found these great mugs. They were just delivered today and they are a really good stainless steel quality. I was a little nervous at first because the selling website did not have many reviews - but I'm happy to report that they are awesome to work with. Everything went smoothly & I got the mugs really really fast. I'm so happy!  

 

They are come in a box of 24 for $56.99 & $15.50 s+h (set price for s+h and the box weighed 15 lbs). For my small group of 20 this low minimum purchase is great because customizing stainless steel mugs is very expensive with a 50 mug min. purchase most of the time.

 

I don't drink much on vacation but when I do have a drink I like it to stay cold & not get warm in the first 5 minutes. That and I know some of my guests drink coffee all day long (so having these mugs will be awesome for them).

 

They come in individual white boxes which I may put a ribbon around.

To personalize the mug we are putting these 2.25" waterproof stickers on the side. These are not our stickers but they are from the Esty company I purchased them from (link below). I measured it today and the 2.25" sticker fits PERFECT for these mugs.

Mugs & Stickers including S+H totaled $89.98 / 24 = $3.75  for stainless steel personalized mugs! Couldn't be happier woot.gif

 

 

 

I hope this helps anyone who is currently on the hunt for a cool mug for their guests at a relatively reasonable price!

    • 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?
