    My Sister will be expecting 60+ Guests at her Destination wedding and was wondering if you did 1 OOT Bag per family or one per guest? Also, did you bring the bags down with you in your luggage or hand them out at home?

     

    Thanks in adavance!

      Hey -- my DW will have approximately 100 guests, almost all couples.  I decided to hang out 1 bag for each couple.  I am giving 1 bag per single person and 1 bag per child, too.  The bag for the child has games and sand castle making things like small rakes and shovels.  I had an initial plan for the OOT bags but quickly nixed it when I realized how many bags I needed and now my OOT items are lighter (tylenol packs, pepto, etc -- hangover kit) than my original plan (full size sunscreen, aloe vera, etc). 

       

      I think we will be bringing down roughly 55 OOT bags.  Not fun but it's gotta be done! :)

        Yeah I think I will be helping my sister out with bringing down supplies and such in my luggage...just wasn't sure how much I should expect to bring!

        Good idea on packing lighter and smaller items...with all the great ideas I am sure the lists can get out of control!

          One per family is fine, maybe you can add the extras if its more than two folks per family (like couple with kids get more maybe).

           

          I say bring it all down with you.  It's nice to receive your guests with a toke of your thanks for traveling to be with you on your special day

            We are going on a cruise and I am doing one per cabin and having them placed in the cabin before they enter.

                My OOT bags are super expensive but they come in three sizes so I am doing the medium and small one for the couples and a large one for the singles

                    Wow I have the same question but I only have like 25 bags to fill!!! Lol. You have got a HUGE group - what an amazing trip that will be!

                    But yes, can definitely see the trouble of the OOT bags and other things with that many guests!

                      I love the idea of one bag per couple, and then a bag for each single person.  I was torn between one bag for each room or one bag per person...  but in some cases (where there are 2 guys sharing a room for example) it just didn't seem to make sense.  Great idea!

                       

                      FutureMrsTO - one thing I'm doing that might work well for you is put slighly different items in each persons bag.  For example, maybe a frisbee in one bag, but a deck of cards in the next bag, and a beach ball in another bag.  Not every person needs a frisbee/deck of cards/etc since people will be playing with others.  This way you're still including a whole bunch of different items, but it wont be as expensive with all the bags you need to do!
