    I think thats about right. But keep in mind that there are 2 different sized bottles. There are the smaller nip sized bottles & then there's a size above that which are the one's that I got. For some reason I think the larger bottle is about 200ml, but don't quote me on that!

      Oh yeah, we're also having a flip flop basket by the dance floor.  So our guests will have plenty of keepsakes

          We're planning on 30-50 guests so our OOT bags will have to be relatively small to be able to afford them all. For favors, we're just thinking of a small candy bag for each guest, mostly as just an extra splash of color for each place setting.

              Im not planning on doing favors at the reception. Im sending luggage tags and a pre-wedding brochure before and then OOT bags. I dont think my guests will even notice. too much all inclusive fun going on! ;)

                I too ponder these thoughts....I just feel like I should be doing something more to show my appreciation for coming all the way for the wedding but then I think it was their decision and it is a vacation for them and nothing would stink more than to spend the money on favors only to have them discarded or not used.  ughhhhhhh - decisions!!!!

                 

                My fiance really wants to do something "unique" so we are considering having personalized temporary tattoo's made for fun - has anyone on here done those?  Just interested in where you purchased them and how they were received by guests.  (Our group is a bunch of goof-balls so they would probably like them but I'm having a creativity fart!)

                  We are doing really nice OOT bags so no favors - it doesn't make sense to me because everyone's going back to a hotel room right on property - not like they will take a souvenir home that night - and I don't want to give them anything extra to pack.

                  beaches - I was thinking about tattoos too! A lot of our guests are from our Burning Man camp and we often do tattoos for that....so it would be a kind of fun thing. Let me know if you find a resource! TIA!

                      We're doing favors -- something unique to Mexico so we'll shop for it when we're there. No OOT bags here.
