CANADIAN OOT BAG info...where to shop!

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies,

 

I really can't find the time to read through the whole thread, but I have read the last few pages. My wedding is coming up really quickly, and I've only just started on my OOT bags. I really would like tanks/tees for my guests. Any suggestions on where to go? I live in the GTA if that helps any. I really appreciate any help. There are 25 of us going, including bride and groom. Thanks!

Those are going to be great oot bags! I like the idea from the Martha Stewart site...was going to use that idea too. Great mindswink.gif

 

For those of you who have bought the big bottles of advil and tylenol....are just putting some of each into little envelopes or ziplock bags? I thought about doing this, but is anyone anticipating a problem with customs? I always travel with the med bottles and don't want anyone to have problems if they get checked....what do you think?

Raykel... one idea is to travel down to your destination with all the pills still in a sealed bottle (and divide them up quickly once you're at the resort!). That way if you do get checked, it shouldn't be a problem since they're in a sealed container that can be identified. If you've already divided them up into individual packs, customs may question if you're trying to re-sell them or sneak in something a little less legal. If you're doing first-aid kits, pack the med bottles in with those and if any explanation is needed as to why you have such a large size bottle you can show that they're part of the package for your guests. HOPEFULLY you won't have any problem to begin with but these are the suggestions I'd had from frequent travelers just in case.

That is definitely an option and a good one....the only catch is I was hoping to hand out the oot bags before we left so we were not the ones transporting them down. We will have to see how the packing goes and then decide I guess. Maybe I will just include on the welcome letter that we have all sorts of painmeds etc wtih us so if someone is short to come and see us.

Hmmm, if you're doing first aid kits you could try and sneak little ziplocks baggies of meds into them? There's still a chance of having those checked I guess but it might be enough of a solution for you since they'll be divvied up between all your guests and might seem more for personal use than distribution.

    • 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?
