      Love the contents...They are great.  Where did you purchase the actual bag?  I am getting married in less than a month and have so much to do!

          OOT stands for out of town.

           

          It's pretty standard to either give them to your guests at a welcome dinner or have the hotel/resort put them in each guests room upon their arrival. It's not something that is considered a "must do" but many, many destination brides do choose to do it.

            At this point I have only had to make 10 OOTs. That's one per single and one per couple. I have spent roughly $15-20 per bag to this point, still looking to add something special though. Depending on how many are on your guest list, they can be done for relatively inexpensive!

              The totes are from Dollar Tree. I actually found out about them through BDW! Here is a thread about them: http://www.bestdesti...-tree-tote-bags

               

              You really can't beat $1 a piece and you would never guess that they were so cheap if you see them and feel them. If you have a Dollar Tree nearby, I'd suggest going into the store to find them so you can pick your colors. If you order online there is a minimum and you get a variety of colors. Hope that helps! Good luck!!

                    So far, about $15-20 per bag and I've made 10 bags.
