Are you giving gifts or favors to your guests?

Recommended Posts

I don't know if I should go to the trouble of wedding favors. Do you still do them for destination weddings? If so, any ideas?

 

Thanks!

Julie

We're actually considering doing small photo albums for our favors. We know that people will have a ton of pictures from the wedding AND their trip, so this way it will be something they can actually use.

A lot of people do out of town bags for destination weddings (also seen on this forum as OOT) with all kinds of items...cups, koozies, medicine, shirts, etc. I am thinking about doing something similar for my wedding, but haven't completely decided on the contents yet (it is also easy to go over your budget trying to do these if you have a large party). Good luck with your decisions. There may be a lot of information on the OOT thread and even the planning threads include a lot of information about what people give to guests. Good luck!

I am doing OOT bags for those staying at the hotel with us. My wedding favors will be 200ml bottles of Appleton rum used as place cards.

so much to think about. Initially I didn't want to do OOT bags but I think I'll do something small. As far as favors... maybe you can do something unique to Jamaica. A small bottle of rum/rum punch tied with a favor tag... jamaican blue mountain coffee... small craft.

 

Other options for general DW... passport holders, luggage tags, beach picture frames.

 

Just don't drive your self crazy... keep it simple.

I am doing OOT bags for my gift so I don't think I will do a favor in Mexico but I am thinking about getting favors for my AHR.

My only concern right now is how am I going to get all of my OOT bag stuff to the resort :S

I think we are doing the same thing. We are doing OOT bags and we're going to be including a nice insulated travel mug as a part of the OOT bag along with other goodies, so I think that will kind of replace the favor for the DW. The insulated mugs I've been looking at aren't exactly inexpensive. But then we'll do favors for our AHR.

I'm planning to do the OOT bags with some things in them - I think that counts as the favors in a DW. There's only so much stuff you can take with you!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
