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.

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
