2 beach towels
2 flip flop luggage tags
1 starfish wine stopper
1 set of ocean-themed wine charms (custom etsy order)
1 bottle sunscreen
1 lip balm
1 disposable camera
1 deck of flip flop playing cards (ebay)
1 lanyard and card holder (we're going to be on a cruise ship, so this will be used to hold our guest's room keys)
potentially 1 bottle of wine.
I hope this helps!

I don't think that you necessarily need to do both, we just really wanted to.

I am also getting married in November 2009 and it is fast approaching and
I am also having this same battle with myself. What do you choose because after reading alot of threads it never seams to fail that with the OOT bags your guest dont tend to use everything, and favors like coasters and picture frames,ect seems so redundant. Do you guys think people really wind up using these things? When you are a bride on a budget you want to spend wisely not excessively because everyday life seems to handle that. So OOT bags or Favors.
With that being said I was considering giving each guest a bottle of jamaican rum, I have purchased several 24 oz tumbler mugs. I was also thinking about making some kind of arrangement out of those items with a couple snacks in it and giving this to our guest when they arrive. Our primary color is tangerine with accents of yellow. I just loved the bright vibrant color. So I wanted to focus on that color for the favor. I came up with tic tacs orange the best flavor there is. Ionna put that into a fancy contaner with a pretty ribbon and giving that to our guest at the reception. What do you guys think will it work? I know I need to give them something else but I have no idea what. I was thinking towels but I wonder the how much extra is the airline gonna charge for that. Decisions, Decisions. Planning a wedding is super hard work

If the budget allows, I will add a beach towel. The bags will be per couple and singles with each get their own bag. As a favor, the guest will receive a CD that will come with the ceremony program.
