Question about OOT bags

Recommended Posts

you guys have a lot of guests! i was planning on distributing them personally once everyone arrived...i'm lucky because we're arriving at least a day before the rest of our guests.  so there should be time to put them together

Im having the same dilemma!! I am expecting 95-100 guests and that's a LOT of stuff to lug down with me so I'm at a complete loss as to what to do.

 

Option 1:  Assemble them beforehand and distribute them individually to everyone at the airport, which gives me a good excuse not to go overboard and stuff them too much, so I might just give a bag, a few brochures/iteneraries and a travel mug.

 

Option 2:  Have everything shipped down south and have the hotel prepare them for when we arrive/check-in.....

 

Not sure what to do!

We're going to distribute as many bags as possible before we leave (drop by people's houses that live in the same city as us) and will take the rest with us.  We have only half as many guests as you, and the thought of carrying everything down with us was stressing us out big time!  Its those damn mugs that take up so much room lol.

I think it's a great idea to distribute as many as you can prior to you leaving. I believe this depends on the hotel, but some hotels don't accept shipments so you may not be able to ship it down there prior to your arrival! And you don't want to get there and realize that some boxes never arrived.

I think you girls are right... I might just have to distribute as many as possible in advance.  Would it be a horrible thing of me to do it at the airport before check-in??? Or is that tacky and too last minute? I just don't know if I can actually drive around across town and back delivering 100 packages off.

The only thing I can think of that would make this complicated, is that you probably wont be with all your guests until you get through security and are at the gate.  And if thats the case, you will probably have way too much stuff to be able to take through security as carry-on luggage. 

 

If you're going to wait for your guests and check in all together, that may work... but honestly, I think it would just be too stressful!  You should start relaxing the second you arrive at the airport :)

 

Can your bridesmaids help you deliver the bags before you leave?  That way you dont need to drive around to 100 homes.

I think we are going to have the front desk hand out Welcome Letters only that indicate info about the Welcome Dinner that night. Then that night we will be giving them out at the Dinner. Front Desk doesn't charge to just hand out the letter.

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
