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 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!!

    • Had anyone traveled with their wedding dress on JetBlue? If so can you tell me how you did it? I leave 9/23 and I’m still lost on what I’m doing. I bought a vacuum seal bag but I’m iffy about using that. TIA
    • Hello, has anyone recently gotten married at Le kliff? so far our planning experience hasn’t been the best, does anyone have any recent experience with getting married there? 
    • Hi I’m about to book my wedding and wonder if anyone has recently got married at RUI Ocho Rios? Would anyone has the prices for extras please? We are going to book the top package but we need to add extra people as we have 50 guests. we also want to have an after party after the reception - any ideas on the timings for it or prices please? We have emailed the hotel but can’t seem to get any answers until we pay deposit. Which we have just done at Bahia Principe to find out after they won’t allow us to have a reception past 9:30pm even though they said we could at a cost of $300 usd per half hour prior to booking and paying our deposit. We where prepared to pay this even thought it is very expensive plus DJ and bar costs.    we are nervous to book and pay another deposit now incase we are in the situation. We are already paying hundreds of pounds to amend our guests bookings too.    any advice is greatly appreciated please.   thanks  Sam sjpulfer18@hotmail.co.uk
    • Hi Oleg. Thank you for such a cool app. I advise you to add an item there: ftara weddings | toronto wedding photographer. It would help me a lot. I myself recently came to Canada and it was difficult to find good photographers. It would be much easier with your application.
