This is so interesting to read!
I think we will do modified OOT bags... they are going to be really nice, and act as favours. I do not think we will do the first-aid or hangover kits.... we do not have many people coming, and those who are are really organized, seasoned travelers. Maybe I will just pack more bandaids, tylenol, etc., and let people know I have them...
We ARE buying bubba kegs for each person, and filling them with little things... decks of cards, spf lip chap, epns, and postcards. We are only personalizing the bubbas for the bridal party; everyone else just gets tags. I made a very detailed passport information/games packet for each couple too.
PLUS we are giving each couple a thin, pocket-size video camera. They were on a ridiculously good sale.
I do not think most of the items in the OOT bags would be used by our guests, including the bags themselves (though I am giving bags to the bridal party). I would much rather spend the money on really nice things for them than on little things, but that is just me and our guests.
There is a lot of drama with our wedding, and it will only get worse as the engagement goes on. I really, really want the people who make the effort to come know that they are really appreciated.
