Putting together OOT bags???

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering as far as the OOT bags go, is it easier to put them together before you go or wait until you get there.....and as far as getting the items there....is checking the items for the flight an easy task, I didn't know if they would hassle you about it or not with all of the regulations they have now, or has anybody shipped it to the hotel ahead of time? Any input would be great!

For me, it was easier to pack all of the OOT items & then put the bags together when I got there. Since we were there a few days before our guests arrived, DH & I had time to arrange the bags before giving them out at our welcome dinner.

We didn't have any problems with checking our luggage or anyone asking us what we had packed. Once we reached customs & told them that we were getting married it was no problem!

 

Also since we had so much stuff to take we gave our parents some of our bags so that we wouldn't have to lug 7 pieces of luggage ourselves. If thats an option for you, I definitely suggest that.

 

I don't think I would've even attempted to ship items to the hotel. I would'nt want to worry about everything arriving there safely & on time.

 

Another thing that some BDW brides have done, is to give the bags out to their guests before they leave for the DW. The advantage to that is you don't have to worry about packing it & dealing with it yourself.

 

 

Hope this helps!

I put our bags together when we got there. There is no way I could have put them together at home and been able to fit the stuff in our luggage. We did not have any problems getting the stuff there. I prepared as much as I could before we left, so it took less than 30 minutes to put the bags together.

I plan to prepack the contents in ziplock bags and pack them with the actual bags ina couple of suitcases and send them down with family. I will reassemble once we are there.

I stuffed all my OOT bags into a suitcase w/ other stuff and there were no problems, I just assembled them right away when we got to the resort. No problems w/ airport security or anything like that!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
