    Hey

    i am making OOT bags for my wedding in July 2010 at the Moon Palace (yay!) and im in the UK (London).

    Basically it seems a lot harder to get bits over here, and also, everything personalised seems to be in a minimum of 50 or even 100 units! i only have about 25 people coming!!

    So is there anyone in the UK who is also doing this? maybe we can order in bulk and split things between us?

    or, any other UK brides doing OOT bags? where have you managed to pick your bits up from?

    thanks! :)

      I'm from the us but I would say create your own with stickers and stuff. I've heard that guests loved the headache pills that were in the bags. There are a TON of great threads with advice on this subject to. I would also ask this question in the Moon palace 2008-2009 one. Good luck

          There are lots of vendors on the forum that offer to make logos and monograms for reasonable prices. There are also tons of brides out there that have gone the DIY route and there are entire threads dedicated to explaining how you can make them on your own. I've heard it's addicting if you DIY, I'm not brave enough, lol.

          Hope this helps: DIY Forum - Best Destination Wedding Forum ~ The Ultimate Destination Wedding Resource

            yeah ive looked on there, it's great. although the thing is a lot of the suppliers etc are american. in the uk we don't have half as many shops that can cater for this, and OOT bags aren't something most english brides do, so there's not much in the way of choice!

            im not sure how easy it'll be to buy from the USA, pay using a UK card and have shipped to the UK, and the added cost of that too.

              I would check ebay--there are a lot of sellers that will do personalized for no minimum.

                  Just bumping this. Want to know what the UK brides on here are putting in their favour bags and where they're getting it from.

                   

                   

                  I've seen some great ideas on the other posts but the items are impossible to get as the websites are american.x

                    Im from the UK and love the idea of OOT bags and like you, am struggling to find stuff.. I love the personalised koozies people have in them so ive actually bought them from etsy and paid for the international shipping..! But for the Hangover kits I find the 99p shops are brilliant!! I had 33 hand sanitizers for £10 and a twin pack of lipbalm was buy 2 for £1 so worked out 25p each!! xxxx
