    How are you giving the bags to the guests? Can you work something out with hotels or do you have to do it?

      ooh, I dont know yet! people are arriving on different days so I'm tempted to have the front desk give them away as people check in. however, I think it's a nicer surprise for people to arrive at their rooms and see a gift waiting for them.

        We asked everyone to attend the orientation session put on by our travel group and after the rep finished his spiel, we handed out our OOT bags. One guest didn't arrive until the next day, and we just held it for her. If you're having guests arriving on different days, you could arrange to meet them in the lobby when they arrive, or if you're having a welcome dinner (or other event), that would be a good place to hand them out too.

          I am hoping that the hotel can have the bags in the rooms for people as they arrive.

            since we were leaving just after christmas, we went around during the holidays, visiting our families and passing out the bags. it was a lot of fun doing it that way. I only had to ship 2 out to family members who live out of town.

              You can ask the front desk to help you get into there rooms to give the oot bags if you want it to be a surprise. That's what happended at one of the weddings we attended

                I know Dreams charges $4 to deliver the bags to the rooms. I believe its per room. That has been my debate, I would love to have them in their rooms when they check in. I have people arriving Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, My wedding is Saturday, I don't want to spend all my time in the lobby waiting for guests. My welcome dinner is Friday night so giving it then, I feel would be too late.

                  hi ladies, I have been debating about this as well. So far I have decided that since i have guests arriving on different days, the ones that will arrive when we arrive will receives theirs early, maybe at a welcome lunch (since we are having personalized bubba kegs I want them to get the most use out of them!) and then the others who arrive later will receive theirs directly from us or in their rooms.. probably their rooms. :) I'm just worried about leaving them in their rooms because our resort does upgrades right at check in.. and I don't want to find out that someone got an upgrade and never received their bag because of it. (Maybe I'm just thinking too much!) lol

                    I was thinking of letting ppl know that every night before the wedding at x time we will be at one of bars before we go to dinner and was planning on handing them out then.

                      Since we arrived before our guests on the first flight we went to the lobby and greeted everyone who arrived and handed them their bag then. For the people on our flight, we handed them out to them at the pool once we were all settled in. They loved having us meet them adn were super surprised by the bags.
