OOT bags at an AI?

Recommended Posts

I like the idea but am torn between a few things. I see that some people make the bag a soft sided cooler or put koozies in them. My fiance and I stayed at an AI back in August and never took drinks anywhere with us since they were free everywhere so I don't want to include these things (don't think people will use them). I also think most people will bring their own sunscreen so what else do you add? Here's what I have come up with: aloe vera gel, advil, pepto bismol, bandaids/small first aid kit, bug spray?, maybe a beach sarong/wrap - but what else? I'll probably try to individualize them a bit, adding some sand toys for people with kids. I don't want to do super personalized things (like a cup with OUR name on it) as these are hard to use when you get back home. Also, I don't particularly want to take a billion things with us. Would it be better to mail them in advance? I think this might make people get excited but would also cost us postage....then what if they forget the stuff anyway?

KJT- Hi.. You def. have a cute idea adding "toys" for the couples with kids! Most people do bring their own sunscreen...Umm.Aloe vera Is great!

Where is you wedding location?! Is this going to be your welcome bag/gift bag? ...If it is both then -I think you should def. put one item in there that is personalized (you n your FI's date and name). It might be kinda silly to have every little thing in there just your names, but it is your wedding!

customize your OOT bags with what you would like to share with your guests! Don't stress about this...choose whatever you want to include. It's your choice to lug a whole bunch of stuff with you or not.
