We are doing OOT Bags. We started planning our wedding 11 months out and we put the OOT bags in our budget. Thus far we budgeted $400 for them and we expect to have ab 40 guest (including ourselves). I too had never heard of OOT bags be4 this site but now they are just necessary. I really love the idea of them and to be honest I am enjoying finding diff items at low prices for them. I plan to put (keep in mind I'm and 8 day cruise bride) homemade puzzle books, hand sanitizer, sign and sail card holders w/ keychains, pens, note cards, highlighters, postcards, welcome letter/brochure, snacks, travel mugs, tissue packs, homemade soaps and possibly first aid kits. Lemme tell ya Vistaprints, OTC and Michaels have become my new fav places to shop. I'm buying a few things everytime we get paid and I plan to have my bags completed by July. Also my favors will just be decorated raffia fans for females and electric (handheld) fans for guys. We will give out our OOT bags at the Cocktail party/meet and greet on the 1st day of the cruise. I don't think anyone has to have OOT Bags but I think it's a nice gesture since ppl are spending sooo much to come to our wedding. We're also doing T-Shirts for the group but we're giving them out before we leave Maryland.

But I have to agree with everyone else, though: they are not mandatory, but if you can squeeze them into your budget, they might me a nice gesture/unexpected surprise for your friends and family that have come to join you for your big day!

I also want to make everyone a CD, does anyone know where people get personalized CD labels (preferably in Canada)? Thanks! -Steph
