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

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies!!! Love this thread, so many great ideas and now a few things I will be leaving out of my bag, thanks for the tips.wink.gif I am going back and forth on the type of bags to use. My Bro in Law and Sis in law did a dw in Mex and gave out beach bags so everyone has one already. She owns an embroidery company so she did them herself they are fantastic.

 

 I was thinking of going with drawstring back packs. One per family and having them screenprinted. Her brother owns the screenprinting side so major help there. I wanted to put something personal for each family and have thier names put on one side of them. Last names and first initials or something like that. I have not decided how I am going to do that part yet.

 

My sister says I am being to detailed and I will drive myself crazy, so I am thinking of forgetting the personalization of the bag and putting it on the passport book that will be attached to each one.

 

Would you be more likly to like something personalized like the bags or not? If you could give me your input that would be great!

 

I have 16 possible bags to make. And my screen printer, because he is family will get it done for me in the schedule I want and need so timing would not be an issue.

As long as the bag is generic personalized, like the name of the place and not the name of the couple, etc.  I feel like I wouldn't want to carry around a bag that said Joe and Sally, but I would reuse one that said Jamaica, Mexico, etc.

Any Canadian Brides find a good site for advil and pepto etc??

I am having a hard time locating one that isn't too expensive.....

We just bought the containers of 10 from Dollarama for 2$ each. They have both Tylenol and Advil. We are not including pepto, but included little packages of Tums. You can buy packages of three in the pharmacy section of Superstore of Walmart for between 1.50-2$

For the Pepto I just went to Wal-Mart for the box of sleeves.  There are 24 tablets in a box and 6 on each sleeve.  For my other "drugs" I went to Costco and purchased the Kirkland Signature brand Ibuprofen, Acid Reducer, and Anti-Diarrheal medicine and then individually packaged them with dollarama craft baggies and put labels on each baggy and a big label on the inside of the first aid kit with the directions for everything. So much cheaper and I was then able to give everyone a few more than I would have otherwise.  It's a little more work but I definitely have more time than money...lol.  Goodluck!

Ohhh awesome .. than you very much!

 

I am only doing ten bags ( so far)... One per room so that would much better than the little packages!

I never thought to buy at Costco...

    • Hi! That would be great. This is the only thing I need help with as of now. Finding one is my biggest roadblock so this is appreciated!
    • Hola!! How are you??? Let me find the contact that i used to have and I will send you the info.  Do you need something else? Warm regards   
    • I’m getting married in June 2019 and cannot find a Sikh priest to be able to perform my wedding ceremony. I’ve contacted a few that live in Mexico but they never respond. If anyone knows of any who’d be willing to perform the ceremony and one that is okay with interfaith marriages, I’d really appreciate it! 
    • Hi, my sister is getting married next year. She is very disappointed with the look of her tooth because they have a wide gap between her two front teeth. She always complains that parents have failed to correct this fault at the initial stage. Now, we don't have sufficient time to rectify the teeth because braces take at least two years for proper rectification. We have heard about 6 months braces from a friend of mine in Houston. Is this treatment effective? Is it possible to rectify the misaligned teeth in just six months? Please give some genuine replies and suggestions. Thanks in advance.
    • Hi,
      We are planning to celebrate our parents 25th wedding anniversary. We have been searching for a place to hold the party. Actually, we are planning to celebrate this as a wedding ceremony, as most of our families are there. We searched on the internet and found a place in Kingston. We are planning to book one of the resorts in Kingston to stay and celebrate our party. But, it's not been finalized yet. It's been a long time since we had met together and this could be a chance to increase our bond for love and togetherness.
      Folks, if you have any suggestions for the destinations, share your suggestions. After all, this is our parents second wedding ceremony and we must make it so grand. Hope you will share your ideas.Thanks in advance!
