    Hello, I am looking for some ideas! My fianc© and I are planning our wedding at Dreams Palm Beach Sept 4, 2010. I know it seems kind of early but I am trying to get started now on some of the little things so I am not losing my mind the last month or two before we leave. One of the things I really want to do is a nice welcome gift bag to have in my guests’ rooms when they arrive. I have come up with a few ideas but I just don't know how much I should do, and how big to make them. I have read a few things that say if you bring too much with you, you will have to pay an import fee! I have thought about doing an embroidered beach bag w/each couples initials, and maybe an embroidered beach towel for each person as well. I have also thought about filling the bag with items such at sunscreen, a fan, hand sanitizer, Advil, a waterproof camera, some personalized bottles of water, some munchies or snacks, a personalized coozy and maybe a picture frame or small photo album. I’m not sure how much is too much, but we do want everyone to know how much we appreciate them taking the time so come be part of our day. Any advice or other suggestions of other things to do or add would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in Advance and Happy Planning!

      Congratulations! there is tons of info on what you are looking for. The girls here call them "OOT" bags (out-of-town bag). If you do search, you will find a lot of suggestions.

              We are doing a beach wedding in Sy Lucia on May 29, 2010 but have already bought everything for the OOT bags... I wanted to get everything at the end of the summer to find the good sales.. We are including a beach bag (from Oriental Trading), underwater camera (from Sams), beach towel (on clearance from Academy), blow-up beach ball (from Oriental Trading), sunscreen, aloe vera lotion, & sunscreen chapstick (all from Dollar Store), plastic spray bottle (from Wal-Mart)... I am also including an information packet about the island and of the wedding itinerary... we are staying at an AI resort so we decided against water and food in the bags... Hope this helps!

                Check out this forum started by KLC77. It's called: "My OOT bags~ the big hits and the things that weren't used"

                I found it very helpful!
