    Wow! We are finally done with our OOT bags. FI and I spent a ton of time debating over them. They were actually his idea because his brother was married at Dreams Cancun a couple of years ago and they had the bags waiting for their guests in their room when they arrived and he thought it was so cool. I CASEd (Copy & Stole Everything) from all of the awesome Desties out there. I’m sorry I don’t have individual shout outs, but feel free to jump in if the idea was originally yours! So without further ado, here are the pics and details :o)

        Christmas Traditions

        Since our wedding is pretty close to Christmas there are a couple of traditions that we mentioned in our Booklet.

        December 1-12 is The Festival of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Puerto Vallarta and marks the founding of the city with parades and special events.

        December 6 is St. Nicholas Day and growing up we always hung our stockings up the night before and St. Nick would leave us an ornament. For some reason my Omie (grandma who lived next day) always knew exactly what St. Nick left us. She passed away 2 years ago and I thought it would be cool to incorporate this tradition into the wedding. It works out perfect since our wedding is the night of December 5th so we made Starfish ornaments and put them in the OOT bags and also included a mini-history in the Booklet.

        I hope this gives all you B2Bs some ideas and feel free to hit me up if you have any questions on my bags!

                Your OOT bags look great! I guess it's time for me to start compiling some things as well...

                  Thanks :)

                  I made the labels in powerpoint and then printed them on the 8x11 sticker label sheets. Cut them with the big paper cutter and then FI stuck them on.
