    I am glad I read this, I was considering OOT bags too, now I don't think I will do them.

      I'm debating on this as well. I hate the thought of packing all that with me along with everything else I need to bring! Ughhh!

        I'm in the same boat! Was considering them, but now I think I will just do a larger favor instead.

            I felt like I was the only one considering not doing the OOT bags!

              I think a lot of us out there feel that way! It's like it's something you HAVE to do, even though for many of us it's not our style or doesn't fit our budget or we'd rather be creative in other ways.

              It's almost taboo, isn't it, to say you don't want to do them?

              In our case, our families would end up throwing most of it away, so we'd much rather put the money into something they will remember, like sailing!

                I understand with 30 guests the cost adds up. I am doing an OOT bag per room/and or couple. I will have a few single people, but I do not think that I will have that many people at my wedding. I am definetly on a budget and I must start buying a little at a time. Good Luck! Remember - Have fun. Don't sweat the small stuff.

Baked goods that I've been looking at are pretty expensive, they're something local and different and they don't have to be packed :) Just a thought!
                  We're also doing a charity donation to the American Cancer Society instead of favors. I've had to travel for a lot of my friends weddings because they all got married in Boston this summer right after my fiance and moved to Texas...and quite honestly, I felt terrible but the favors always ended up in the hotel room trash can (except the edible ones)...I probably shouldn't have just admitted that hahaha
                  Hi Lilly129! Could you please share where you're getting your truffles? I was thinking the same thing, getting some Mexican chocolate or coffee or something along those lines.
