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

Recommended Posts

I plan on loading up the OOT bags with gifts and skipping favors at the reception (maybe do some candy).  In addition to the typical OOT items (first aid kit, sunscreen, snacks and water, welcome brochure, etc), our "gift" will be iPOD travel speakers and baseball hats.  Also we plan on doing higher end bags so that will be part of the gift too.

I am doing OOT bags that are going to be given out the day our guests arrive (I'm hoping the resort will either hand them out at the front desk or deliver them to their rooms...but we'll see)  And then for favors at the actual weddding, I think we are going to make a donation either to a local Jamaican charity (since we are getting married in Jamaica) or a US charity that means something to us.  I am almost positive that 95% of our guests will lose their favor by the end of the night because we have dinner one place and reception at a different location.  So this way, they will get their mugs and other stuff in their OOT bags which they can take home and remember the wedding and they won't have to worry about carrying anything around the whole night (since it will just be a piece of paper explaining the donation in honor of our wedding guests).  :)

Yeah I don't think we are going to do favors.  We are going to do the OOT bags but our reception is on La Barcaza (a wedding boat) and I doubt that people will remember to grab them.  Personally at most weddings I end up forgetting about the favors by the end of the night anyway.  I think the OOT bags are favor enough!

ohh all good ideas... we might buy something unique from the vendors for the table and if we don't find anything then OOT bags will be good enough =)

We will be doing an OOT bag as well as a favour. We didn't want to have to bring more things down with us so we are making a donation on behalf of our guests to a charity that has special meaning to us. We are going to let our guests know by way of note that we have made a donation their behalf to the TourforKids which is a bike race that raises money for children with cancer. I am going to make bike cookies to attach the note to and that will be our favour.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
