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

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies, just wanted to post a quick update for what was used in our OOT bags. Most people seemed to use the cups and the bags. We packed double walled tumblers with straws for everyone. We also saw people using the actual beach bag quite a bit. Although I loved putting together the oh Sh!t kits, I am really not sure if anyone used the stuff in them. I know for sure done used the Aloe. We had also packed Tylenol, gum, lip chap, propel (this was used), hand sanitizer, tide to go, Kleenex, and tums. We also packed the kits for ourselves and most of the stuff we didn't use. I made welcome books for everyone with indie on the resort, about Jamaica, and games. These were a big hit. Although I am not sure if people used them, they sure did enjoy getting them and lots of people mentioned they are a good keepsake. The final thing we included were Id badge holders. I didn't realize before we left that R rio ocho rios, the standard rooms have actual keys and a huge keychain attached to them, so guests couldn't use the holder for their room key. I did see a few guests using them for tip money and other things thoug. Overall I think they were a great item yo include and we definitely used ours.

We packed the kits for ourselves as well not sure about our guests but we used the following out of our Kit:

Bandaids- the first day my flip flops cut my foot

Aloe - My hubby got sun brunt on the 2nd to last day

Pepto - we both had a little stomach issue on separate nights but no big deal

Hair elastic - I always loose these things

Lip Balm with SPF- we used ours everyday and I know that few guests also used it

Advil - I had a headache the second night

 

What we didn't use

Dramamine

Anti bacterial wipes (used at least by one guests, my sister's ear piercing had closed and my hubby's sister (who is a nurse) use it to sterilize a needle to re pierce her ear so she could wear the BM's Jewelry)

tums

 

I wish we had put neosporin in the kits

Along the lines of the massage ideas above, we are noticing a trend with our clients of giving their guests spa credits, vouchers or gift cards as welcome/thank you gifts! It is a fantastic idea if you do not want to have to bring everything down with you, assemble, then pay to have distributed to your guests rooms. Plus, it gives them something very relaxing to do and is really appreciated by your guests who are traveling so far for your big day!

 

Happy Planning!

That's actually not a bad idea! Thanks for sharing!

I just wanted to share a great site I found for first aid supplies and meds. https://www.firstaidsuppliesonline.com/ They have name brand and generic. I got IBU, antacids, first aid ointment and sunburn gel, enough for 25 bags, for $33.53, including shipping. I found a coupon online for 10% off. That was for the generic supplies. They do carry name brands like advil, motrin and pepto, I decided i need to cut corners where I can so I got the generic, but still great prices on the name brands also!!!

    • 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?
