assembly of OOT

Recommended Posts

Like the majority of people, we packed our OOT items with us and assembled them when we got there. Since we were scared of the weight restrictions we had my BIL and my parents pack some of our stuff in their suitcases too.

I am wondering how necessary is the OOT bags? I was talking to some other gurls and they were under the impression that OOT bags were for weddings that have guests coming from out of town to attend a home based wedding in which case they are truly OOT guests. Meanwhile, for a destination wedding...all guests are OOtowners. Besides the token, inquite and personalized items you can add in a bad..from what I can tell..many of the items are a given to be packed by any vacationer...eg. advil, sunscreen...at least I would.

I did things a little differently. Since most of us live in the same area I hired a school bus to take us to and from the airport. I got picked up first so put each persons OOT bag on their seat ready for them. For those not on the bus we saw them before we left and gave them theirs then. It worked out really well but we also had a small group.

Hi ladies! For those of you that packed your OOT goodies, did you have any trouble getting it through customs?? I just don't want to have it get stuck at the airport. Do they think its fishy you are traveling with so many little bottles of pepto and Tylenol?? LOL

I plan on packing my things in suitcases and transporting everything with me. I don't want any "drama" of my things not arriving where I need them to be when I need them there!

Our OOTs are already made...I plan to give them to everyone on the bus to the resort...something to do to fill an hour...However, we just realized it will take 2+ suitcases! and they are super heavy! OOPS! Thankfully my mom, sister and nephews have donated thier 'second" bag to me so I can get everything down there!

LOL!

We're going to try to give everyone their bags before the trip along with the prewedding brochure. Just thought it would save on weight for traveling, be less stressful, and they would already know what is in them prior to the trip (like bandaids, sunblock, hand sanitizer, etc) and not bring double with them. The only problem is the ppl that live kind of far away...may have to take those, but going to try to get rid of most of them before the trip!

We're bringing everything to assemble the bags down there. We'll give a bag or 2 to FI's parents to bring, depending on how much we have. It doesn't look like that much right now, but I have a feeling when I try to put it all in a bag it's gonna expand quickly.

    • Hello, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!
    • Anybody getting married at the fives beach hotel in playa del carmen in 2020? I'd like to connect with others as we are experiencing some issues and misinformation with the karisma transition. Hoping we can all help each other!
    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned.
