I didn't actually get married there...got home last Wednesday..we were married at Azul Sensatori and switched to EDR for the week 2 for our honeymoon. We saw a couple of weddings there and everything looked absolutely gorgeous!
Thanks for letting me know they now put conditioner in the rooms! I have long, very fine hair so it was awful not having any when I visited in 2010.

Anyway, a few thoughts about the OOT bag items. I would not bother with the aloe, sunscreen or conditioner (we were there in January and there was conditioner in the room-and if I needed more I just called the concierge).
I think the personal cards are cute, but it might be really expensive. I would spend the money on the hangover kit and a nice bag (one that people might use again) and go from there.
Only other thing I would add, is a welcome letter/ booklet with info about your wedding, etc.
We werent going to bother with the aloe and sunscreen, but when I went to my cousins wedding, I didnt bring a very high protection of sunscreen so I was very grateful that she included some higher SPF sunscreen in her OOT. The personal cards are looking like they will cost about $2.50 a deck and I would need 21 decks. I found plain cards on amazon for $.69 a pack and my FI is a big cards player so he said he would rather have quality cards, rather than "cheap" pretty cards... since Im monitoring the budget and in charge of ordering items for the OOT bags, I have yet to make the final decision on that one LOL.
What what you put in the Hangover kit? So far all we have is Advil and Pepto, possibly Emergen-C.

what about Tide to go pens? or a cup of some sort?
Throughout the DW planning process, I have at times felt that everything seems very cookie cutter and more difficult to put personal touches on that a stateside/hometown wedding, so I think the OOT bags are a great way to add personal touches in. Also, my FI and I did not want guests feeling like they needed tote around/keep track of wedding favors all night, so we thought it would be nice to have some items that our guests could use all week. I to include a tide pen/shout wipes in my initial list, but I thought it would be a good idea. My FI doesnt get why people might find them handy, but thats because he hasnt done a load of laundry in the past 3 years and thinks that clean clothes appear out of no where
