Well after starting my OOT Bags very enthusiastically in March / April time; I then did nothing with them until today.  If I ever see a piece of turquoise or gold paper or ink ever again it will be too soon.  I mean what else is there to do on New Years Day!!!!


Everything was on a budget and purchased from the 99p store or Free from Vistaprint, I did one bag per couple and one each for the single people, I only had to do 9 in total.  I opted for the paper bags due to the budget and I knew if I got nice bags they would just be disregarded. 


Please enjoy and thank you for all your inspiration fellow brides 2 be :-))







Each bag will contain:

  • A magnet saying ; I travelled all the way to Mexico for Jo & Busters wedding & all I got was this lousy magnet! (Vistaprint)
  • Packet Of Mints (99p Shop)
  • Packet Of Chewing Gum (99p Shop)
  • Handwash (99p Shop)
  • Nail File (99p Shop)
  • Hairbands (99p Shop)
  • 1st Aid Kit (99p Shop)
  • Sewing Kit (99p Shop)
  • Puzzle Book
  • Bookmarks (DIY)
  • Hangover Kit (99p Shop & DIY)
  • Upset Tummy Kit (99p Shop & DIY)
  • Pen (Vistaprint)
  • Photoshare Card (Vistaprint)
  • Playing Cards (99p Shop)
  • Door Hanger (Vistaprint)
  • Door Key Card Holder (99p Shop & DIY)
  • Tissues (99p Shop)
  • Bag & Tag (99p Shop & DIY)
  • Timeline Cards
  • Pool Toy - Splat Ball (99p Shop)

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
