    Hi ladies,

    It is great to read and see all the OOT content ideas on this forum. I just wonder do you assemble the bags before at home and ship them to the resort or do you ship the supplies and assemble them there and give them out when?? please advise. I have no idea. I never even knew about OOT bags until I started surfing this site.

    I appreciate your time in replying,
    Jennifer

      we packed all the contents in suitcases and assembled them when we got there...some hotels do not allow you to ship things down prior so check with your resort

        We also assembled them once we arrived at the hotel. We met our guests at the front desk when they arrived and gave their bags to them at that time.

          We are probably going to assemble them down in Jamaica. We were thinking of giving them to everyone at the airport but I don't know how much everyone will appreciate having the extra weight to carry on you know...

              Yeah I remember when I just joined I was like "OOT bags?" what's that?

              Our neighbours were saying to my fiancee the other day that we are going above and beyond what he thinks most destination brides do. I told my fiancee that he should see some of the talented girls on this forum! I can't believe all the hardwork making thoughtful gifts you girls do!

                I didn't know about OOT bags before I came here either and I don't know what I would do without having them. We are bringing everything down with us and assembling them there. I found 2 small suitcases for $15 to bring everything we need with us because I figured it was cheaper than shipping it and this way I know it will get there.

                  That is a great question! I didn't even think of that, I also had not heard of OOT bags until this forum. Glad I've been reading!

                    Hey there - great question.

                    We brought everything down with us and assembled the bags there the day after we landed. We knew everyone would be sleeping late, so we got up uber early and ran around the resort and left a bag in front of each door (we got their room numbers from the front desk) so when they woke up, they'd find their bags.

                    Word of warning: We paid through the NOSE in baggage weight fees. We totally forgot about that and we were 20 kilos over in weight and for our airline we had to pay $10 per kilo we were over!! And it was all because of the OOT bag contents ... we actually had a bag and a 1/2 left empty when we were coming home ... just something you might want to take into consideration!

                      yes we had almost 2 suitcases full with just OOT stuff...we gave them to my BIL and his girlfriend since they only had 1 bag each and were allowed 2...so it worked out
