    We are going to do OOT bags but I think I am going to buy the bags ahead of time, but then go to the Walmart in Play Da Carman once I get down there and load them up with room snacks and other use things. This way I dont have to load up my suitcase.

      I am pretty sure I am going to make some! I like the thought of having a swag bag of sorts and I like doing little things like this.

        I don't plan on making them. Not important to me... If I do they will be small and real quickly put together..

          I wasn't going to make them at first but then thought about making an inexpensive one. Just first aid kits, aloe vera, some sea shell books marks I found a $1, snack stuff from Sam's and a small hangover bag.

            I went to a DW last year, and received an OOT bag.  More than half the stuff in the bag never got used.  It was a nice gesture though.  There are only 6 of us in total going to Jamaica, so my FI and I are planning and paying for an excursion off the resort as a thank you to the 4 guests - I think a cruise to Rick's Cafe.  Plus, the BM and MOH will receive nice gifts at our going away dinner.

              I would like to do them but not sure how many guest we will have and it seems like a lot of stuff to bring with all the luggage restrictions and customs,it seems like a headache!

                I love all the ideas that I see for welcome bags and OOT bags but I'm not doing it for my wedding. We have between 40-60 guests coming and we decided to sponsor a group trip as a thank you for coming. Plus it's less stuff to carry and pack - for you and your guests.

                    I'm opting out of this idea too. Phew! Thank God for this thread. I was starting to feel like a naughty bride. What my FI and I came up with yesterday is to make our favors. We're going to buy mini blank/bare books and put in pictures and quotes about love. Some of the quotes will be in our wedding vows, but our guests won't realize it until afterwards. Thought it would be a personal way of sharing our moment beyond the day. Also, we'll put inscriptions in each book for each of our guests with a personal note thanking them for witnessing our joy. I'm really excited about this project!
