      I haven't decided...but I'm STRONGLY leaning towards no favors - the OOT bags are enough!! haha!

            We're doing OOT bags and we'll do favors also.

            OOT contents:
            * beach towel
            * margarita glass in our wedding colors
            * custom package of margarita mix
            * travel size Tequila
            * custom word games
            * deck of cards & poker chips
            * sunscreen
            * after-sun care
            * notepad & pen
            * snacks

            Favors:
            I'm planning on making some family favorite recipes (my dad's fudge, my mom's oatmeal bars, and almond sugar cookies that I make) and I'll wrap them in gift boxes to put at each table setting.

              i didn't do favors - i had OOT bags w/similar items that you mention. i guess i did do the fans, but used them as placecards as well - so those might be considered favors. but i didn't do anything else.

                I'm doing OOT bags and wood fans on the seats at the ceremony - that's it.

                  ok, good to know! I might be able to scratch them off my list!

                    I was too torn about doing the OOT bags as well as favors because those bags are probably going to add up. But since we are getting married close to the holidays, I am going to give a xmas tree ornament (glass ball with sand and seashells inside) as our favor with ribbon that has our names on it....it's an inexpensive way to give our guests a memory of the event.

                      great idea! mine is near thanksgiving, maybe I can do something with that?!? ok, maybe not. I am just not sure what to do, I want to stick with the beachy theme, but I also want to give them something they can use...
