Las Vegas OOT

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. I'm having a little bit of trouble trying to get things together to put in a OOT. I purchased the totes today and have an idea of things to put in. I am taking any suggestions in what else to put in. I looked through many lists and am still somewhat lost. We will only be putting together 15 OOTs. Thanks in advance for all the help

I'm having the same problems. I am looking for cheap Vegas picture frames because everyone will be taking photos and for a lot of my family it's going to be their first time out there so it'll make a cute memento. I was thinking of also doing a mini "Poker for dummies" book, sunscreen, Vegas map or guide book, personal fans, and personalized water bottles.

I would say Aspirin, water bottle, candy/or other snack, playing cards, shot glasses...

the maps and frames are a great idea. If you could swing it you could always put a few dollars in chips tied up w/ a ribbon and a little note that says "6/1/09, a number you can bet on"...there are some roulette tables w/ 1 dollar chips they can use them at. I mention that because I plan to play roulette and bet on my wedding date for luck.

 

Hope that helps :-)

The dice and card idea was one that my guy thought of last night. We have already purchased personalized poker chips since few of the guys are really into poker. I was thinking the "poker for dummies" books would insult them, so was thinking of getting for the guests who I know do not play at all. Read on one of the other threads something about a "hangover kit" so I'm looking for things to put in there. Anyway, thanks for the responses

If you know anyone who is going out there soon, have them go to one of the casinos, or a few of them for that matter, and get used playing cards, they sell them cheap and they are still in great shape they just have corner cuts or something to mark that they have already been used by the casino so no one can bring them in and cheat with them. And maybe something that tells the time, you can never tell if it is day or night when you are in the casinos!

These are a few items i was debating to use in my OOT bags.

personalized shot glasses

vegas keychain or luggage tag

emergency kit including tylenol, sunscreen, lip blam, band aids, and alka seltzer (for hangovers)

water

candy

gum

condoms (for your friends NOT family)lots of hookers in vegas!

welcome letter

 

Keep in mind that Vegas is a totally different atmostphere than a carribean resort. There is so much to see and do in vegas it is very unlikely your guests would use a crossword or sudoku book or a deck of cards. But maybe they plan on laying out by the pool everyday which in that case maybe they would use those things. Just try to think of the practicality for your guests.

The last thing you want to do is spend money on things people don't need or won't use. Goodluck!

With "Sin City" being a common nickname for Vegas, I think you're on the right track. One thing I would definitly throw in is "Oxygen" you can buy single cans of oxygen that are small and matte silver - they have these at a lot of boutique hotels like Hotel Zha Zha, Palms, etc...they are great for hangovers!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
