I thankfully didn't have anyone saying we didn't need them. But, that being said, I figure that people are spending so much to come to your wedding, you want to show that you really do appreciate it and that you are thinking of them too. I am actually making a welcome book that has info about Punta Cana, a map of the resort, info about the restaurants, activities that we will be having throughout the week, and a Mad-lib type planner for excursions and reservations...I'm also including a welcome letter and a thank you note in the book.
We are also planning on handing ours out here, just because there is so much extra weight for all of them (really, we have personalized golf balls for everyone...)
Good luck with your OOTs!!!!

I think this idea is really fun and awesome... although i dont plan on travelling with 6 extra suitcases just for the OOT bags. I want to keep it VERY simple and basic.
My future mother in law has been really supportive with everything... but she doesnt get the point of the OOT bags. I was telling her about them and she said .. i dont think you need to do that... everyone would already be bringing that kind of stuff... no need to waste more time and money on that kind of junk.
So now i'm wondering... is she right? is there really a point to these and would our guests actually appreciate them????
I thought they were a great idea and just a little thank u and "just in case..." for our guests. I was thinking of placing them on the tables at our first group dinner.
And I wanted to include a short thank you note from my FI and I thanking everyone for coming and supporting us.
Thoughts or advice anyone??????????
