CANADIAN OOT BAG info...where to shop!

Recommended Posts

How are you guys going to transport your flowers? I thought about bringing the ones for the mom's along so they could always keep them, but I am worried about crushing them. I know you said they could be scrunched, but for how long before they don't pop back? I supposed it they looked bad when we got there I could still order fresh ones.....

I am bring my boquet and bouts & corsages for my FI and our parents. I think I'll put them in one of our carry on bags. I don't want to risk anyting if our luggage is late or lost (knock on wood!) But I have heard from other brides that they put their real touch boquet in their suitcase and it popped right back into place.

But I think you're referring to OOT which stands for Out Of Town. I know somewhere in the many threads here there is a huge list of all the acronyms that we all use, which I'm sure you'd find with a quick search. I found it really helpful when I started out and still go back to it once in a while (it's saved on my laptop, not my work computer).

Northern Safety If you have someone in the US you could ship to first then it might be even better. I hadn't been able to find a vendor for these located in Canada though either.

Another option depending on how many guests you have is just to buy a large sized bottle of the items you want, leave them sealed just to cover your butt in customs, and then separate them into little pre-labelled ziplocks once you get down there (kind of a last minute pain but it might be a lot cheaper!!). If we didn't need so many for our guests, this is likely the option I would have chosen.

Agreed Echo

I got what I wanted from northern safety but the duty charges were almost as much as the merchandise sad.gif So I would budget that if you re ordering from them

I will say they have the best selection I found online however

Hey guys! Was just at Dollarrama the other day. Two hand sanitizers for $1.00. They are pretty good sized bottles...the same size you would buy at Shoppers for just under $2.

Hey I need some pricing help... I wasn't planning on including disposable cameras in my OOT bags, but thought I would at least check out prices to see how much additional cost it would be. My problem is that I'm not sure what they charge in stores if I were just to go pick up the number I need so I don't have anything to compare with.

 

I found a website that currently has some on clearance for $4.60ea (plain black, 24 exposure, 400ISO, indoor/outdoor, with flash and you can re-use them!) but of course the minimum number to purchase is 100 and I only need about 35 I think.

 

So if anyone can comment on the prices they've seen or purchased at... or if there is enough interest that anyone wants to help me fill the order please let me know!!

    • 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?
