    Hi Angela,

     

    Are you planning on making the OOT bags before you get there? I'm taking all of my stuff with me and then making the OOT bags when I arrive, so I was planning on just asking the front desk for a bunch of pocket maps (because they do give these out to guests) and stick them into my OOT bags.


    Also, just an idea that we're doing -- so we're creating a newsletter type of brochure to put into the OOT bags as well (our wedding's not until November, so I don't have one to show you), but in that newsletter, we're going to have a section about "Where's the Bride & Groom" -- basically, we're planning to just pick a pool area/beach area everyday and let our guests know that's where we'll be so they can come hang out with us if they want. If they want to do their own thing that's totally fine too, but figured, I don't want my guests to walk around all day looking for us... we'll do the same thing about a bar at night.

    Also - I'm keen on getting flowers from outside the resort for my 2 BM and extra boot's for the 2 GM - is there a secret to getting them descretely on to the resort?  Or do they just know how to package them properly?  Does anyone recommend them?

     

    I'm also looking for a map of the resort that is clear - I found one on the resort webpage but you can't really see much unless you zoom in and I'd like to be able to put the map in our OOT gift bags.

     

    I think that is all my questions.....for now!!

     

    Thanks all you lovely ladies!

     

    Angela

     

    81 sleeps until we leave and 85 sleeps until I get married!  WOOHOO!

      SChica927 - that is a really great idea about the where are the bride and groom - I might use that idea for sure!!

       

      I'm doing the same thing - I'll keep everything seperate until we get there and then I'll assemble them before we meet up later that night. 

       

      What contents did you put in your bag?

        From what other brides have said, Mayan Disneo is a fraction of the price. You just have to tell them to deliver really early as they are usually behind schedule.

          So I have a couple thoughts of things to include:

          • Newsletter
          • Bug Spray
          • Sunblock
          • Cheap Sunglasses (like the kiddy ones from the $1 store)
          • Gum
          • Body Wash (they only have soap in the rooms and a lot of people like body wash)
          • Safety Pins
          • Squirt Gun or Bubble Gun

           

          Stuff like that. I haven't shopped for any of it, so I'm sure it'd get pricey, but I'm just keepin' track of ideas for when I'm ready to go shopping. What are you putting in yours?

            Hi,

             

            I've got in mine so far:

             

            Wet Ones

            Hand sanitizer

            Chap Stick with SPF

            a personalized travel mug

            and this hair stuff I got at the beauty supplier for $0.25 - its a moisturizer for dry hair

             

            I'd like to get some tums for in them as well and maybe gum or tic tacs.

             

            I really like the squirt gun idea - that could be a lot of fun!!

              I see a lot of people mentioning bug spray... does anyone know how the bug situation will be around November? Mosquitoes flock to me like flies to light. Also, any recommendations on a good, non-icky, non-sticky feeling, nicely scented bug spray? 

               

              I don't think I'm doing OOT bags for my guests, but something I thought was a great idea to include in them was an emergency kit... pepto, immodium, hangover meds, hand sanitizer, etc. Because we'll likely have a small number of guests, we're thinking of other options like cigars (our friends and FI love them), necklaces, sarongs, etc. That's if we have a small number. If the actual guest list expands, then we'll adjust it.

                When I was in Mexico a few weeks ago, the bugs were ridiculous at night... especially if you're going to the Golf area for dinner or something. And I attact mosquitos like none other, so I def got bit a few times...

                 

                I think you're fine around the bars and stuff but if you stray a little, it gets pretty bad.

                    For those doing OOT bags, I am definitely including gum, mints and a pack of tums. From what I recall those things were super expensive in the resort gift shop. Same with aloe and sunscreen. Too bad they can get to be heavy!

                     

                    Angela, where did you get your mugs? I'm considering it but am worried about the cost, luggage space and having to wash them all the time.

                      Hi Angela,

                       

                      I'll be there on 4/27/11 but I already have a photographer booked.  Cristina is also my WC and she is awesome!  She always gets back to me that same day or the very next.  I think we got lucky with Cristina. 

                       

                      I haven't mentioned an outside photographer to Cristina yet.  I think I'm just going to get them a day pass.  Wish me luck!
