    I want to say THANK YOU to every one on this forum that inspired me and gave me input on the different parts of our bags. Without this forum, I don't think they would of been the huge success they were.

    The following photo is our OOT bags with contents. For more detailed information about the contents, check out the link in my siggy.

    We saw our bags and cups all around the resort while everyone was there. They were used all day long and even taken to restaurants and bars at night. Even the bartenders and waitresses knew these two items (Our group was very good tippers). We were constantly getting compliments from people and the staff at the resort

    We also delivered our bags a little differently than others. 90+% of our guests live in the same town as us so we hand delivered our bags the few days before we left so we wouldn't have to deal with customs.

    I don't think there was a thing that wasn't used in our bags. We continuously saw the sunscreen, waterproof wallets, cups, and koozies being used around the pool. We were thanked a number of times for the contents of both our Recovery Kits and Oh SH*T Kits ( I converted a bunch of people to shout wipes for sure). We were also thanked for the Cards and Puzzle Books. Most people said they used them in the airports and airplanes traveling to and from Cancun.

    We heard comments about every item in the bags with the exception of the Hand Sanitizer. I know we used ours (we brought the extra bottles for us to use the 11 days there).

    If you are a past bride, what was your successes in your bag?

      Awesome! I love your bags and everything you did with them! I'm still buying things for mine... can you tell me where you got the mini sewing kits and the drink mixes? I'm having a hard time finding things like that for cheap prices...

      22 booked... we're ready to go!!!

        I got the sewing kits in bulk on Ebay. They were hotel sewing kits, so I took the container off which left the little plastic bag of sewing items. I added a couple larger safety pins that me and my mom had around the house and stuck a sticker on it.

        I still have 30 of the hotel kits left that I was going to post on the for sale thread. If you interested, PM me and we can work something out on them. I paid $0.36 each for them.

        I bought the individual drink mixes at Sam's and Target.

                I love the burnt orange koozies and cups! Go Horns! I also like your bag, so I'll be looking for your response on where you got it.
