    Thanks for the advice Jersey Kitten.

    I think for people who are having a DW at an all inclusive resort, there is no need to add snacks and water since that is all provided for free, right? Sounds like cups, mugs, etc and the bags are all very useful though. And those recovery kits. Very cute idea!

      Thanks Jerseykitten for the advice!!! Your bag of goodies look great!

      What other meds aside from Tylenol would you recommend people would use? Where do you get those individual Tylenol and pepto?

      The "big cup"

      Although not insulated, it was a 42 oz GLOW IN THE DARK cup that everyone used all the time for their drinks. The Glow in the Dark was just an added fun thing. 12.99/dozen from Oriental Trading.

      The Hangover Kits - so people didn't need to bring their own meds or if they needed more...especially after drinking from the big cup!

      I think what we as the brides forget is that most of our guests haven't been to a Destination Wedding before - All of our guests were shocked to recieve their OOT bags and so appreciative of anything they recieved and at the effort we put into them.

        Some brides get there individual packet things from this site:
        Minimus.biz - for all your travel size needs

        I'm still contemplating on doing bags 'cause they're so nice, but they can get so darn excited. I better decide soon, I'm running out of time!

            I see your from vancouver.. I'm from toronto.. hope they ship to canada! thanks.. will check out the site.

            I was having a hard time finding websites from canada with good service and price like the american sites.. If in case you do bags.. check out 4imprint.ca ... they have a location in bc i think and will ship from there.. so wohooo. no custom tax! got my bag there.. and super fast service!

            Good luck Jackie! be careful .. OOT bas can be very very addictive..hehe

              haha this was supposed to say so darn expensive. Leave it up to my muddled midnight brain to sub in words.

              Thanks for the advice osampad! I'll check out 4imprint. Not having much choices in Canada is super frustrating. I did an order from Oriental Trading which went well but shipping was like 3X as much as the states. oh well!

                OOT bags can get pretty expensive fast. My budget for OOT bags is 10$ per bag. I will be stuffing my loot inside woven straw hats that my Dad manged to import from the Philippines 2 years ago. Here is what I will be putting inside:
                Sunburn gel
                Sunblock
                Insect Repellant
                Single dose packet of Tylenol
                Towel
                Hand Sanitizer
                Flip-flop luggage tag
                Welcome to Mexico brochure
