Not doing an OOT bag?
Posted 16 June 2010 - 01:00 AM
Going back to the baskets. But I'll give my BMs OOT bags. Inside I'll add some goodies plus what I was already planning to give them as presents - their jewelry and hair fascinators for the ceremony.
Glad to know OOTs aren't usually expected. I've never been to a destination wedding myself.

I am also handing them out before we leave so they can pack what they want. I don't know if I am going to put something together for the groomsmen or not but I have smaller bags with kid-friendly stuff for my flower girls and ring bearer.

plus I didn't want to have to worry about all of my guests getting them at the same time in their rooms or whatever. . . too much trouble. i will be doing welcome letters or something like that.

The way i look at it is that yes, they are spending a lot to come to our wedding, but they´re having a great holiday too!

We did a small snack bag for their rooms which people liked & it cost me about $10 each - I went to costco and put in 2-3 100 calorie snack packs and a gatorade mini drink. Overall though, don't break your budget.
A snack bag is a fabulous idea! I had thought if I were going to a resort I would give everyone an OOT bag, however now that we're going to Vegas I counted it out. The only things I really wanted to do anyways was to get travel mugs, but now that we're doing Vegas, that just doesn't seem appropriate. I will definitely look for a Costco of sorts down there and do a snack welcome bag! Thanks for the idea! I love it!!
