Cruise Wedding OOT Bags

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies

I thought I'd start a thread to find out what items we cruise brides are putting in our OOT Bags. I searched this forum to see if there is a thread like this and I cant find one, but if there is I apologize. I've been working really hard on my OOT bags trying to figure out what I want to put in them. I think as a cruise bride I don't need as many items as the reg DW brides bc the ship basically has everything on it. So I'm going to put my list below and I'll put a " * " by the things I've already purchased and a "?" by the things that may be coming off based on my budget bc we have a group of at least 40 ppl. Can you all lemme know if you think I should scratch any of these items or am I missing anything really important Thanks in advance.


-Bags (hibiscus ones from OTC for females and drawstring backpacks males)

-Puzzle books (sudoku, crossword word search one per bag)?

-Coloring books (kids duh)

-Hand sanitizer

-Room key holders

-Travel mugs* (DIY ones from Dollar tree)


-Note cards




-First aid kits ?

-postcards to send home* (free with vistaprints)

-travel tissue packs*

-homemade soaps* (I'm almost finished making them all)


OK what do you think and can you tell what you're putting in your bags.

-Beach bag (very simple in various colors)

-personalized water bottles

-snacks (chex mix, granola bars, dried fruit, soft peppermints)


-tissue packs


-shout wipes


I put the snacks in it because everyone is coming the day before. I am going to give them out the night before at the "Welcome Dinner" so I don't have to worry about getting them on board.

I went on a cruise vow renewal for a couple and their bags were very simple, but totally unexpected as I didn't even know what an OOT bag was then LOL


So we got


*personalized t-shirts

*a wine stopper and pourer which we still use

*a nice note thanking us for being there

*a timeline of what the couple would be doing, when the vow renewal was, etc.


They also had arranged for us to each get our own Royal Carribean beach towel which I thought was super awesome!!

Just thougt I would chime in on the OOT bags for your guest.

My FI and I decided to give everyone passport covers, they are fairly inexpesive, I searched on the net wedding passport covers, But we did not give them in their OOT bags we sent out a newsletter as our STD's and then well all signed up and payed their money we sent out "passport" invitation with the covers. Also we are playing to do our favorite things in our OOT bags, along with some of the other ideas I've seen on line.

Meg, I like the old one better!


FYI. If there are RCCL Brides, make sure you don't put candles in your OOT's. They aren't allowed.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
