    I agree...all those $1 items totally add up when you have 40+ guests. Think I'm going to invest in a small oot pouch or cosmetic bag with welcome letter and itinerary. I think the guests will be just as surprised and thankful that I didn't give them more stuff that they'd have to lug on the way home.

      As a "get ready for the trip" present, we're making a CD of party/island themed/drinking songs. We'll give that to them a week or two before the trip. That won't cost alot and we won't have to pack them in our suitcases to give them out there.

      We're also having small candy jars engraved with our names, the date and the island name to give to them at the reception dinner. We're going to fill them with sand from the island as a reminder of the trip. We only have 15 people coming with us so 15 jars isn't too expensive or much to travel with. We're still debating which company to go with but it looks like most estimates on the cost are $120-$175.

        I'm glad I read this, I've been going back and forth about OOT bags as well because of cost. I think that this has helped me to decide that we really don't have to have them. I don't feel so guilty now after reading this. :)

            so i found a good idea on this board to provide some sort of lei or bead necklace so your guests can identify the people there for your wedding... i am thinking that and a thank you note with travel info is good. i am not sure i want to spend money on a bunch of stuff who knows whether or not people will use.
