So, what are you ladies putting in the kids bags? I hadn't thought of giving them a seperate bag, becuase everyone is getting frisbees, beach balls, snacks, etc. I just couldn't think of much else to add for the kids

If you are giving one bag per couple are you putting more stuff in for them? Two of some things for each? I am having trouble finding things for guys but I figure as long as I have some snacks for them they will be happy. Do they even care about the OOT bags anyways? My mom seems to think they don't!

I am not sure that they really do..... the beer koozies I think the men will like, but most of the stuff will be for the girls (I thin it just happens that way) I did put a lot of stuff in mine, so I think they will enjoy them though

I have a question too..
How early are you ordering the items for your bags?
There's still a question on the number of people coming.. should I just estimate and order now? The weddings in 4 months.

No need to freak out, but my wedding is a week after yours and I'm almost done with my bags...lol just kiddding don't worry I still need to find invites, have my dress altered, find Matt's suit and about a zillion other things!

Because our resort was booking up fast for October, I "bugged" all my guests that were thinking about coming into booking.. I used The Knot to keep track of my guest list and even though I don't have formal invites, I pretty much know who is and isn't coming. I then bought 5 or 6 bags over what I think I may need.. If we have extras we're going to give them to friends from WI who weren't able to join us next summer when we go for an informal picture viewing.

If you're ordering things like custom printed items (koozies, etc) I wouldn't wait too long. They don't take a long time, but you don't want to be biting your nails wondering if what you paid for is going to show up before you leave. You'll also want some sort of idea of how much stuff you're going to have to bring so you can "borrow" space in friends/family's bags if necessary.

It's a good idea to flag items you're interested either in a word doc or I created a folder structure on my desktop.. then when things go on sale you can purchase or put together a semi-final list of what you'd like to include..that way you aren't overbuying or getting junk that you regret later.

I ordered my bags early too - and just estimated on who I thought was coming. I ended up being pretty close - but we do have a few extra bags.

 

As for the kids bags - I put some water toys, bubbles, we made a coloring book, crayons, a "flowergirl" custom tank top for the girls, stickers, etc. - just random junk.

 

The guys liked the koozies (though no one really used them during vacation), lip balm, sun screen, aloe, and some of the meds I put in there - advil, pepto, etc.
