    I have returned from my wedding and am finally getting around to posting pictures of my OOT bags. (my wedding review can be found under the Cabo forum). I, first, have to thank all of you ladies for giving me such good ideas and especially how to make some of the items/labels in my bags. I couldn't have done it without you.

    My bags were beach bags that I bought at Walmart at the end of the summer for just $5.00 and, I bought different colors.

    The beach towels for the ladies came from Bed Bath & Beyond and I got different colors, as well. I personalized them by having our location and wedding date embroidered on them.

    The guys got towels from their favorite sports teams.

    I made welcome/thank you post cards from Vista Print and tied them onto the bags.

      I also copied the room key holder for other brides, which I have to say, was a big hit and actually used.

      The first aid kit/survival kit was also copied. I included aloe vera, sun screen, hand sanitizer, shout wipes, crystal lite, chapstick and the assorted meds.

      Sand dollar Christmas ornaments from eBay. I thought they were so cute.

      Little margarita candles from Bed Bath & Beyond. I got them at the end of the summer of $4.00 a box, with 4 in a box. I put one in each bag. The only thing, though, is they smelled really bad as they were citronella (outside) candles to keep the mosquitas away. I put them in a zip lock baggie and wrapped and wrapped them up in bubble wrap and bags, but you could still smell them - and it wasn't very pleasant. LOL.

      My travel mugs came from discountmugs.com. I only ordered 12 and got different colors. I couldn't justify the imprint charge, so I bought clear glossy sticker paper and made my own labels. However, with the shape of the mugs, the labels didn't look very good, so I just put them on the box instead.

      I found a lot of useful/helpful information regarding Cabo that I printed out and added to the bags. I did this at the last minute and wish I had found it earlier. It would have been very helpful to our guests prior to their travel date. It came from cabovillas.com

          The end results - bag and contents.

          Our guests really seemed to appreciate the bags, especially the towels. I never saw anyone using their mugs, however, we were not at an all-inclusive resort. Not so sure anyone even opened their survival kit, but they did appreciate the time and effort I put into it.

          It took 2 large suit cases to carry it all in and we had absolutely no trouble at all going through customs. I had all of the receipts and I was prepared, but they never even opened the bags.

          I can't thank you ladies enough for giving me so many wonderful ideas and showing me how to make all the cute labels. I have been hooked on this forum ever since I stumbled across it and I will definitely pass on the information to anyone that is having a destination wedding. It has been extremely helpful and a lot of fun. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

          p.s. It looks like my pictures are HUGE. If they look that way to you, I'm so sorry. Don't know what I did wrong.

                  Your bags were absolutely adorable, Patti. I especially like the idea of buying the regular towel and having them embroidered separately. Thanks for all the cool ideas.
