OOT Bags for a Large Wedding Group

Recommended Posts

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

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!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
