Question regarding favors in the OOT bag/reception - Please advise!

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies quick question. For those of you who have given OOT to their guests and even those planning on doing so, what were your main favors to your guests? Did you use the mugs as favors or did you put the mugs in the OOT and gave separate favors? My fiance and I are in the midst of trying to decide if the mugs themselves will be favors, or if we should also give a smaller favor to be set up at the table seating for each guest at the reception.

 

Please share your input! Appreciate it!

We did OOT bags that had; first aid kit, tea, hangover pills, crystal light packets, pepto, advil, umbrella straws, disposable cameras, sunscreen,luggage tags and other little things that I can't remember now! And we did favors on the tables too.  I added name tags to the favors so they doubled as place markers.  We had cigars for men(bought at the resort) and seashell lip balms for the women(ordered online).  It is all a matter of your budget and when you want people to use your items.  Mugs may be best given out before so they can use them and then you don't have to haul them all down yourself.

Thanks for your feedback ladies. Good ideas between the shot glasses and also umbrella straws. We're going to monitor our budget and whatever it allows us to get, that's what we shall do. I think the idea of OOT bags is so cool. I like seeing people light up about goodies!

wow... i guess I had not thought on doing favors on top welcome bag.. but I guess I need to think about that too. I am worried how much we are going to spend getting all this stuff down there.

Thanks Justustwo for sharing this. Now I can look through and see what others have done. I think we're going to do both mugs and favors. I want our guests to have the best experience they can have especially since for many of them, this will be their first time attending a destination wedding.

Espeically, if this will be their first destination wedding, I think anything you do will WOW your guests! I honestly don't think people expect welcome bags, so they are a nice touch. I plan to do them, but we'll see how the budget goes first before I decide how much to put into them!

If you can't fit both OOT bags and favors in your budget, or just decide you don't want either or both, don't stress out. People are there to celebrate your wedding and have a fun time, not just to get a little favor out of it.
