    I'm the MOH for one of my dearest friends next month. She is having a small DW in Niagara Falls (Canadian side) and will be honeymooning in the Toronto area. She and her FI will be giving out OOT bags at the welcome dinner. I thought it would be a cute idea to put together a special Bridal OOT bag for them. Some of the things I was thinking of including were:

    Champagne
    Chocolates
    A tour book of Ontario
    bubble bath
    a book about marriage
    a CD of love songs

    So please let me know if you have any suggestions!!! Canadian girls, is there something distictively Canadian I should include?

    I also need suggestions for "something blue". Her theme is butterflies so I was going to see if I could find a little blue butterfly pin to pin. Thanks Everybody!!!

      Everytime I have been in a bridal party, I make a wedding day survival kit for the bride. I will look for it and tell you what is in it. Maybe that will help. They always love them, even if they don't need to use the stuff, they feel better knowing they have it.

        I know there are more things, but this is all I can think of right now.

        Chalk (to cover any stains on the dress)
        Deodorant
        Chapstick
        Tampons
        Q-Tips
        Hairspray
        Comb
        Bobby Pins
        Hand Cream
        Mouthwash
        Wipes (baby wipes clean up anything)
        Hand Sanitizer
        Static Guard
        Toothbrush
        Tums
        Pepto
        Cover Up
        Lip gloss
        Sewing Kit (with white and BM dress colour thread)
        Band Aids
        Lint Brush
        Advil
        Double sided tape
        Crazy Glue

          this is the wedding day survival kit that Julie was talking about:
          maybe try to include some of these-

          Scissors
          Needles and thread (in the colors of your bridal and attendant gowns)
          Safety pins
          Iron and ironing board (if none is available at church or ceremony site)
          Makeup kit (for light touchups)
          Hand mirror and makeup mirrors
          Kleenex
          Smock or towels to protect dresses from last-minute makeup touchups
          Electric curlers and curling iron
          Bobbie pins and combs to anchor veils and headpieces
          Hair spray
          Razor and shaving cream
          Deodorant or antiperspirant
          Dress shields
          Extra nylons in the appropriate colors
          Extra socks for groomsmen and ushers (someone is bound to forget)
          Toys to keep flower girls and ring bearers busy in a quiet way
          Smocks for flower girls and ring bearers to wear over their wedding attire until it's time for the photos or ceremony (kids will get dirty!)
          Masking tape (for last-minute fix-up jobs on decorations)
          Scotch tape for taping cards to gifts so they don't fall off
          Lightweight wire (for last-minute repairs on decorations)
          Super glue
          Breath freshener
          Aspirin
          Smelling salts (just in case one of your attendants faints)
          Refreshments (pop, ice tea, juice, everyone is bound to get thirsty)
          Straws (never drink directly from a glass or can; you will undoubtedly spill)
          A hand-held fan for those hot summer months

            Thanks girls! Those lists are great! I was going to put together a bridal emergency kit too but I figured since every other couple gets an OOT bag with champagne and goodies why not the bridal couple?

              Karen, that's a good idea, you're sweet.
              One of the things I got from my mom, that you might be able to include, is some charms to pin on the inside of my dress.
              So maybe you could find like a lucky star or horseshoe, a butterfly, something blue, and something old of yours, and it could be her good luck and something old, new, etc.

                  Cute idea!

                  I got a cute black and white "Do not disturb/Just Married" Door hanger.
                  Scented candles.
                  One of those little kinky dice games.
                  Love cuffs!
                  Mints.
                  How about a romantic DVD (if they have a dvd player in their room. I know I wish I packed DVD's for our nights in).

                      What a great idea! I'd love to get something like this, but doubt that any of my BM's will think of it ... boo-hoo.
