    Hi everyone! I am getting all my stuff together for my OOT bags and they look great but I also decided to buy starfish wine charms as a "gift." We are not having a "reception" but rather just a dinner at one of the resort restaurants, do you think people will know these are our favors if we put them in our OOT bags? See them below on the link

        hi – i don't think you should put them in the oot bags. it'll lose the idea of it being your favors. perhaps you can arrange with the restaurant manager to place one charm on the glasses that will be on your dinner table. and maybe personalize it with a little hang tag. just my two cents! :)

          I agree with Shae! It would be cute to have them on the glasses...are you having a champagne toast or anything of the sort?

            Yep, we are doing a champagne toast, that's a good idea. I wonder how much the resort will charge us to do that...

              I like Shae's idea as well. We are going to put maracas on our dinner table as favors. I think it will just be another surprise for people! First they get a OOT bag then the starfish wine charm at dinner. Just another plus!

                extremely cute idea -- $8 is expensive, but i do dig the concept!

                  We are lucky we only have 7 people coming with us so the cost isn't too high. I decided after talking to the resort just to put them in our OOT bags and the only reason I did this is because they will charge me a $250 set-up fee to put them out for the reception. To me, that was just too much.

                    These are really cute - but i think your hotel is really cheeky!! Thats way to much. I would put them in my OOT bag with a little note explaining they are a favour or wrap them in tissue paper and hand them to your guests on the day with a thank you tag as you only have a small number of you. This will make it a little more personal.

                      I agree with everyone else. I think they will just get put aside if they are in the OOT bags. And they will look so cute put out on the tables at your reception.
