Is it bad not to have OOT bags?

That being said, I think it is doable if you would like to have OOT bags. I am personally not going to assemble my bags until I reach my destination. That way I can have the bags laid out flat in my luggage, and can keep all my items efficiently bundled. My main item is going to be personalized flipflops, and I'm just having those shipped directly to the hotel. If you're ordering anything bulky (like towels) I'm sure you can do the same (as long as you order them closer to the wedding date).
It sounds like just you and your fiance (and son) will be on the cruise ship, an everyone else will be flying to the destination, so maybe you could pack a suitcase full of the OOT stuff, and leave it with a family member or bridesmaid to bring.
Anyways, if you don't think it's doable, don't worry about it. It may seem like "everyone" does OOT bags based on these forums, but that's because the type of people who post on forums about their wedding details are the same type of people who like to do extra stuff for their wedding. I don't think I've ever seen OOT bags in bridal magazines, and I think they're actually quite rare.

Here's my planning thread if you want to see pics of the pre cruise care package stuff:

When I first joined this forum, I did get carried away, and started including costs of OOT bags into our budget...but our budget just swirled out of control from there! So we cut back, and I'm not too bothered to be honest...one less thing to worry about!
Good luck with the rest of your planning!
