OOT Bags or Favors....or both

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I may be wrong but I think both are too expensive. I am finding that the OOT bags alone are pricy. How are you ladies bringing all this stuff down there? Love to hear all the ideas

 

Thanx

OOT bags can get pretty expensive. I plan on spending around $20/OOT bag. I figure people are spending lots of money to come and share our day with us so it is the least we can do to show our appreciation.

 

You could definately make these bags for cheaper though and even if you decide to not make them at all, guests won't know the difference.

I have to agree with jetsbride. It is a way of thanking everyone for coming all that way. It can be as expensive or cheap as you want it. For us the most expensive thing was the bag, but I know some bride have used paper bags in their colors, or even plastice bags in their colors. I tried to include things I thought would be handy and that people may forget and be able to use. I opted out of the travel mugs as almost everyone I know has them, they just need to be told to bring them. So these are things they will use throught their trip and at home, but the favors are special thank yous for the wedding. A momento of the occassion. I did not spend more than a dollar on anything else. Ok I may have gone a little crazy at the end, but I love my oot bags and had a lot of fun making them. I will be bringing them with me. I am thinking of packing an extra suitcase (one that is no good anymore, wheel casing broken) and leaving it down there. I am almost positive I will be overweight! So I will pay the extra on the way down. I don't think I will need to bring it home again.

I am only going to do the OOT bags and allow those to serve as favors for the guests that attend our DW, but I will have favors for all of the guests at our AHR. I think that doing favors and OOT bags is a bit much, and most of my guests are "heavy" packers anyway and I don't want to weigh anyone down with a whole bunch of ex stuff to take back to the states.  We are getting married in Jamaica, the trip alone is going to be enough for most of my guests so I will be sure to include a thank-you note in the OOT bag to show my appreciation for them attending our wedding.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
