How much did you spend on your OOT bags?

Recommended Posts

they may not be long enough for cake slices, but if it's cut into squares, I think the takeout boxes would work really well.

 

if you need more space, I found these cake boxes online (I think they were the best priced): http://www.myweddingbasics.com/configure/configure.aspx?design=Unprinted_Large_Cake_Favor_Boxes_White&model=PBBoxPlain.tcx&SKU=PB3100

 

there are others that are wedge-shaped and will make the circle of a cake if arranged together. I liked those as well (sorry, no link saved on them, however). so many brides commented that they had TONS of leftover cake, I really want to make sure each guest will have a piece when they left the reception.

oh right, to answer the main question, I think the OOT bag price range is typically $10 - $20 each. I'm budgeting $2 for the bag (thinking of ordering a reusable shopping bag in white with a mexico-friendly design and seeing if other brides want to buy in to the large quantity), another $5 for t-shirts (we'll make them ourselves with iron-on transfers), $3 for Bubba Kegs (AMAZING deal at WalMart last week) and another $5 for medicines, etc. total ~$15 each.

Hi Kellygrrl,

 

Where do you plan on purchasing your bags from?  If the price is decent I would be game in going in with you to get a better bulk price.  Yet I may need to purchase a lot sooner than you.  Let me know.

We are having a small number of family members travel down to Grand Cayman with us, therefore we are able to spend a bit more on each bag.  We are doing one per couple and a larger one for my sister as she is bringing her two kids with her.  I was able to get a great deal on Lands End tote Bags so I ordered 8 med size and 1 large one for my sister's.  We are including bubba kegs, 2 per bag (1 tumbler and 1 keg), a wedding week survival kit (standard advil, chapstick, aloe, sewing kit, first aid kit etc), playing cards, frisbees, tortuga rum cakes (native to grand cayman), cayman sea salts (also local company), going to do some personalized golf balls for those who play, soduko books or crossword books, underwater disposible cameras, DIY tile magnets (as favors), beach toys for the kids, also going to pick up some local Cayman magazines to put in there as we are going down a few days early.  I will also be DIY a welcome packet that will include out timeline on a hand drawn cayman map, photoshare card and a handwritten note to each of our guests.  We definitely respect how much money it costs to come on an excursion like thsi and by keeping our guest list small, my estimate these bags will run us about $50 each.

Another bride on here and I went half on bags from www.discountmugs.com. They have lots of bags and they weren't expensive at all. They also give you a discount if you purchase more so that's what we did. Also, sign up on their site and they send out coupons all the time.

yep, that was similar to my idea. I was going to do a generic riviera maya design and see if other girls were interested. that way, we could break up the minimum quantity of 150 and spend about $2 per bag. I just ordered a sample from these guys (thinking white bag with light blue design):

Thanks!! Those are super inexpensive!!!! And I like how they open on the side rather from the top!! Although I do love the idea of the chinese boxes I think I may use them for something else maybe in my oot bags!! Great Find!! Thank you!!!!

I guess I'll probably be ordering from CheapTotes, all the other brides are so much further in their planning than my procrastinating ass, LOL

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
