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!

    • 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?
