        Hi guys. I'm confused. What does OOT stand for? Sorry! I was thinking that instead of doing welcome bags, that I would have bottles of wine delivered to each person's room with a note saying it was from us. And, also like a pamphlet with the activites of the weekend. I'm just not sure if I should buy the wine down there in bulk- which I think might be a lot of money because everything there is imported or see if I can get a case or something sent from a preferred vineyward. I don't know if that's even allowed to have cases of liquor shipped into the country. Not sure!

          OOT Bags are "Out of Town" bags that bride and grooms put together for their guests to thank them for coming to their wedding. Usually filled with items theymight have forgotten at home, along with some fun things they can use while they are there.
          The bottles of wine are also a good idea. Not sure about cost though. I would be afraid to bring them down myself bc of customs and possible breakage. Maybe check to see if a costco is near by where you are planning to go....they might have something. I would think purchasing down there would be much easier then lugging all that down with you, but who knows.
          Has anyone bought wine down there to give out to their guests

            Wow great job!!! You're so organized having this all done so far in advance, it will definitely give you more time to spend on other stuff as your day gets closer! Got to admit I'm a little jealous, I just started mine last month lol

                  Im pretty happy with the bags and their contents. However I feel a little lingering feeling like Im missing something or should have something else in there. I may break down and buy something else to put in them as I still have a year to go, but for now they are done and are going into storgae until I decide as to whether I ship them to Playa Del Carmen or whether I lug everything down there. On the plus side, I will have an empty suitcase to fill with souveniers and statues when I come home.....hmm...thats an idea...lol

                  Thanks for looking ladies, and if you have any further ideas as to what I might be missing, I would love to hear them. I have decided against getting beach towels due to cost and weight of my luggage so thats out.

                  Thanks again for all of your post and helping me with ideas on my OOT bags!
                  So glad I found this forum!
                  Thanks for looking and Congrats to all the brides to be and newly weds!
                  Jennifer
                  I loveeee your OOT bags!!! They look great!
