      Okay, I realize I originally posted about the different sizes but after all my states of denial I am going to have around 100+ guests.  Outside of luggage what other options are you all doing for bringing stuff down as your second checked bag?  I remember seeing a post where a BDW bride had large black bags but I can't find it to ask her where she got them from.  Since I can't convince people they should stay home any suggestions on what to do?

          Raazzy,

            you could always ask you friends and or family to stash things in their bags.  That's what Im doing....people offered so I said yes!  I'm only having 60 people, I can only imagine carrying stuff for 100.     

           

          Good luck,

          Yolanda

            Great suggestion of mixing it up, too bad I didnt read this before buying a deck of cards for every bag

            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!

              Maybe your MOH, Mother, Sister-In-Law etc don't need the two checked bags?  So I would suggest asking them to check under their name. 

               

              I put luggage on my registry (and got it!) so we were able to take everything in

              4 large checked bags

              two carry ons

              1 garment bags for suits and 1 for my dress

              =no charge. 

               

              Now when i tell you everything I brought:

              78 OOT bags (packed flat-survival kits & snack bags pre-assembled)

              bag.jpg

              20 candle holders & candles

              10-6x8 table numbers in frames

              table3.jpg

              3-5x7 frames for place card table

              champagne glasses in box

              cake knives

              cake topper

              50 flat bamboo program fans

              menu & place cards
               

              you'll have no problem!!

              btw BAGS ARE A HIT!! people really appreciated them!!!!

                Wow! There is hope for me afterall, haha. I just keep buying more and more stuff! Eight months to go I can only imagine how much more I'll accumulate by the time it comes time to pack! Hearing you got it all down there with no trouble makes me feel a million times better. Glad your OOT bags were a hit. Not surprised though...I remember your post about them and they were fab!
