OOT bags and/or Favors?

Recommended Posts

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).

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
