    Fabulous idea! Very classy and more economical than bags. The boxes are cheaper, shipping to the location will be cheaper, and I won't have to spend so much money trying to fill them up. I was very concerned about what to put in the bags to make them look full. This solves a lot of issues. Thanks for sharing! I love the way you dressed the boxes up, by the way.

    Patourn: I plan to have one box/bag per couple and may double up on a few items. Of course, each single person will have their own box/bag.

          Also have any of you out there made any up for children

          Patourn - My FI and I are planning on giving out OOT bags at our welcome dinner since everyone will be there for that. We are giving out one bag/box per couple. The couple will get double of certain things (snacks and stuff) and any singles will get the same stuff, just not as much. We don’t have any children but I would think candy and toys would work depending on the age. I heard of another bride on here putting water guns in the OOT bags. Maybe that or some other water game/toy. Or maybe you can give kids an OOT bucket and pail instead of the bag/box.

              I love this idea.. Great job... I am not having a welcome dinner and I am concerned about getting my OOT Boxes to the DR.. I am not sure if it will cost me more to ship them or pack a heavy suitcase. I may just mail them before hand... not sure.. any ideas?
              But I love it alll. I will be including immodium AD for those that may get sick

                  Wow, those look great!
                  I may have to reconsider doing bags, those boxes are adorable.
