      You know what I'm having trouble with - just the estimation of how many bags to make. I'll be doing one per couple and one per single as well. But we haven't booked anything yet, if we go on the dates we want to, then we're only 10 months away and I've wanted to start collecting stuff for the OOT Bags to kind of spread out the costs a bit.
      But who knows for sure how many are coming. Could be as few as 10-15 or as many as 40 if everyone who was interested actually comes. But I guess it'd be best to aim higher and have extra stuff than not enough...

          That makes me nervous. I will try to check into this more and see what I can find out about this.

          Sure, no problem! I also found a whole first aid kit at the $1 store, so that's something to consider too. :)

                is anyone planning on getting some of the stuff for their OOT bags once they get down there? e.g., snacks -- it seems like it might be cute to get local snacks? i think that might ease some of the packing issues? but at the same time i have no idea what's really available near the resort

                    I'll have 56 bags.  I sewed them myself (with the help of an incredibly good friend).  I'm splitting up the bags and contents between me, my FI, my parents, and my sister's family.  Shouldn't be too bad split up that way.  Just checking the bags.  Just make sure you weigh them and don't go over the weight limit - gets expensive fast!  I just had to let my dream of some of the larger/heavier items go (like mugs - FI was NOT having it).  I'll be buying water and snacks once we get there.  Rum cakes too.
