    I am such a bad searcher... I have been looking for a thread i know I saw it
    (I think/ I hope) May be going crazy........

    So how many of you are counting your oot bags as favors? if you are then do you think guests will expect something after the wedding day?

    if you did both what did you do for favors?

    Thanks...

      We're just doing the OOT bags for those going on the cruise with us. Once we get back, we are having an AHR, but we're just doing hershey bars as favors for those.

      What we are going to do once we're done gathering everyone's pictures from the cruise is make a DVD with pics from the cruise and wedding itself and make nice covers and send them out. They will also be our thank you cards for the actual cruise/wedding.

        I'm counting the OOT bags as favors.. I'm also including as favors, the Fans-i'm attaching the ceremony programs to them (thanks to the previous brides with the idea), and also a basket of flip flop slippers for those who wore the wrong shoes. I really doubt your guest will be expecting something after the wedding. Hope this helps!

          haha I borrowed that same "idea"... which one did you borrow the attached and hanging program or put on the fan itself?

            I know this is an old thread but I wanted to bring it back around and see what others are doing about this. 

             

            Are you doing OOT bags and favors?

             

            If yes, are you putting the actual favor in the OOT bags or giving them out on the day of the wedding?

             

             

            I am doing OOT bags and providing nice silk fans on all the chairs for the ceremony.  Is that enough or should I still do something extra?  The budget really doesn't allow for it but I wanted to see what you ladies are doing.

             

            Thanks in advance for the responses!!

              I'm doing OOT bags and at the ceremony site there will be fans. I didn't do separate favors for the reception cause I didn't think anyone would miss them since my OOT bags have quite a few things in there.

                We are doing OOT bags and then at the reception the BM will make an announcement that we have made a donation to the Children's Hospital in lieu of table favours.

                  Love that idea.  I thought about that too.  Maybe we can fit something like that in.

                      I like the donation idea as well. I think I'll discuss this with FI since there is a local foundation that he works with here called Shake a Leg (it allows disabled children the chance to do water activities they never dreamed of like sail their own opti with the help of a grown up, or other such things).
