    you are pinned to my wedding board and i am now subscribed, best OOT bag I have seen yet!! Great job!

    After convincing FI about OOTs and reading what feels like every OOT thread on this forum I finally was able to narrow down my list of what I wanted to put in them.  When I came across the dollar tree totes on here I knew I HAD to have them and of course the Bubba Kegs for all our guests.  As a Canadian bride a cross boarder shopping trip was needed to hunt down the infamous dollar tree totes and I was sure I was out of luck because they were sold out online and I had hear many brides tell me on here that their stores were sold out as well.  Five dollar trees, asking 1 stranger, no lunch and a lot of persistence (thanks Mom!) I was able to track down 36 tote bags!!!!!  


    The OOT Bag and contents



    Contents + shell soap (forgot it in the first pic oops!)



    Wedding Week Survival Kits 

    "Too Much Booze, Too Much Sun, Too Much Food, Too Much Fun"



    -2 sheets pepto chewable tablets (in mini craft baggie with label top with medication information, dosage etc. on reverse)

    -4 shout wipes

    -1 2oz hand sanitizer (personalized label)

    -2 blistex chapsticks with SPF 15

    -1 roll of Tums

    -1 tin mini altoids

    -2 gatorade individaul packs (may add 2 more if I can find them)

    -2 individual packed nail polish remover wipes

    -1 advil 10 ct

    -1 nail file




    ID Cases - was going to do the resealable badge holders with key coils but found these in the $1 bin at target.  I just noticed the personalized insert isn't in this photo, I will post the template for it.


    "I take you, to have and to hold, my room key and my money, from beach chair to barstool, for soused or for sober, in heat and humidity, from this day forward, until I depart"



    Personalized items

    -First Aid Kit

    -Hand Sanitizer

    -Lip Chaps



    Travel Sewing Kits - with mini scissors, which I loved!!!!



    Bubba Mugs with tags - "To have and to Hold, To Keep Your Drink Cold" (front)


    "We hop you enjoy this Bubba Keg, to hold your drink and keep it cold while on the beach or by the pool.  After our vacation in paradise is over, please take it home and enjoy using it for your hot beverages too!  Whenever you use your Bubba Mug we hope you remember our wedding in paradise and know how much it means to us that you are able to join us for our special day!" (back)

    Bubba Mug 18oz Tumbler  --  Walmart (US)  --  $4.98

    Bubba Mug 32oz Mug  --  Walmart (US)  --  $6.22      


    I originally planned to do everything in our colours but when I found some great items in the US I decided that bright and tropical colours mixed would work just fine, also that way everyone wouldn't have the same colour bags, mugs etc. and there would be less confusion.


    Notebooks - mix of red, yellow, green and blue

    ID Cases - Mix of grey, pink, green and blue

    Altoids - Red (peppermint) Turquoise (wintermint)

    Tums - Mixed Berry, Citrus, Original Mint

    Sewing Kits - Pink, Green, Blue

    Blistex - Turquoise and Green 

    Bubbas - Green, Turquoise and Black

    Tote Bags - Red, Yellow, Light Blue, Green, Pink


    We will be giving the large Bubba Mugs to our Wedding Party, BM and GM, Parents and ourselves!  We were going to do the whole group in the large ones but they would be a lot harder to pack, the smaller ones will all fit in one suitcase easily and also will be able to be used at home for coffee etc. 


    I added a few extra bandaids to each First Aid kit that I purchased at Big Lots Bandaid Brand 20 for $1.00!  I like the Johnson and Johnson brand name kits but Dollarama here in Canada has great kits with a lot more pieces, alcohol wipes, gauze roll, tape roll etc that these do not have.  We will be doing up a master first aid kit with other medications, and first aid supplies and I will be putting a small note in every kit that will let our guests know this so they can use anything should they need it.


    I will be purchasing plastic test tubes with lids that I will put some dish soap in and place inside every mug so our guests can wash them once we arrive in Punta Cana.


    Overview of some of our LOOT when I arrived home from Buffalo!!



    I think that is everything, if anyone has any questions let me know!!! I will post images of my tags and my templates in the next post!!!!!!

        thank you thank you thank you!!! So easy to use, I think I'm using all of them but changing the colors to match my theme!!!

                      target has them, I've heard of people using coupons for them but I haven't found any so I just bought three boxes of them for about 8 bucks total, not bad.
