OOT bag explosion!

Recommended Posts

Ok so I started picking up things for my OOT bags and before I knew it they are busting at the seams!  I have so much stuff to go in my medium size bags from Bath & Body Works and that doesn't even include bottles of water or homemade cookies!   I am not sure what to do , any suggestions?  FI will not let me buy new bags, since I need 20 of them..... :(

 

So far I have-

 

Bath &body works coconut lotion Full size

Small Bath & body works candle

water jugs w/ handles (1 for each guest in room)

first aid kit

assorted snacks- crackers w/ peanut butter, pretzels, trail mix, gum, crystal light drink mix-I am making homemade cookies just before packing.

small kit w/ bobbie pins, hair band, and safety pins

tissues

nail file

room key holder w/ lanyard

sewing kit (mini)

 

Still to come from Vista Print- welcome letter, thank you card, and to do "menu" card !

 

I will post pics soon!

Well I'm not sure what your bags look like or how sturdy they are, but could you attach the mugs (depending on how heavy they are) to the outside of the bag using ribbon?  Or by keeping everything in the bag, use the space in the mugs to tuck away your snacks??

You could put the snacks in a separate bag, like the clear treat bags some girls have used, and hand them out at the airport for people to eat on the plane? That way also you wouldn't have to pack them in your luggage at all.

You could put all the snacks in a seperate bag and attach it.  Would love to see your bags.

You will have to post pictures, I am not sure how big your bags are!!!!

I think the snacks in the mugs or in a separate "disposable" type bag is a great idea!

I agree, I'd stash the snacks inside the mug, or if your mug has a handle or clip or whatever you could somehow fasten it to the handle of your bag? I wanna see pictures too :)

Yes, I also think that you could put items in the mugs.  If that doesn't work maybe you could just have the bags set up in their rooms with the mugs and water set up nicely beside the bag?

wow that is a lot of stuff! one thing that i would look at will be how easy will it be to transfer all that stuff, will the homemade cookies travel well, and how much are you willing to pay for extra luggage? that is what i need to keep in mind :)

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
