OOT Bags- Did guests use the actual BAG?

Recommended Posts

I am about to buy bags for our OOT bags. Did you guests actually use the bags (canvas totes or similar) during their stay. Is it worth it to buy the canvas totes or would you just use a gift bag? If they did use the totes and you got the $0.99 ones from cheaptotes or equivalent, would you get the same ones again or go for something a little nicer like a boat tote?

 

In summary, just wondering if the canvas totes are worth it.

I think the key to OOT bags is buying a bag that will actually get used even if it means spending a little more money. I cant say from experience because i haven't gotten married yet, but from the notes of past brides thats what I got out of it!

I bought my OOT bags from cheaptotes and my guests used them the whole time they were there! There held up to being tossed around the whole week, plus I beaded the fronts of them and they still were in great shape, my BM use them as market bags now!

We still have a few months to go but I have read over and over the guest use the bags. We splurged a little and went with a waterproof bag with our logo professionally put on. The costs is a little under $4 a bag.

 

In addition, we are doing personalized koozies and travel mugs. These three items cost the most and everything else I am super bargain shopping for. Most of the other items were under .50 with a couple being $1.

we got cute beach bags (pic in my siggy) and people used them on the beach. i've seen some of our guests use them since but that may be just to show me they use them.

I bought the bags from cheaptotes. Almost all of our guests used them when we were there. I doubt they are using them now, which is why I'm glad I didn't spend much more. The totes from cheaptotes are not bad quality. I'd do the same thing over if I had to.

    • 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?
