I have everything purchased for my OOT guest bags but I'm wondering what other people are doing in terms of putting the bags together before arriving at the resort or after you get there? I think packing everything will be a lot easier if we keep everything separate (Advil packets stay in their box, sunscreens stay in their box, etc.) but on the other hand once I'm at the resort I don't see myself really wanting to spend any time putting OOT bags together! I wanna be having FUN before my wedding haha
We can't decide if we want to do a sand ceremony or not...my thinking is we either do a sand ceremony and DO NOT recite our own vows, or we recite our own vows and DO NOT have a sand ceremony. Fiance is a tad bit opposed to reciting our own vows, because he thinks it's kinda cheesy. But I think the sand ceremony is cheesier! I like the idea of doing vows...feels more genuine. Plus we are really trying to keep the ceremony simple.
I'm also trying to decide a song I want to walk down the aisle to...any previous brides know how long the walk down the aisle takes when doing the beach ceremony? Trying to find the perfect song...
Would love other brides' opinions on this stuff - I feel like I'm honing in on the final details and this is the hardest part! Buying everything was EASY lol
I was wondering the same thing about OOT bags. Not only is it easier to transport together but it sounds like they search through your bags and you have to produce receipts. I imagine this would move along quicker if you had all of your sunscreens together, advil packages, etc. The only thing I thought is that the first night I'm there maybe I will stay up late, put all the bags together and be done with it? I don't think I'll go crazy with the little tags with sayings on everything, which admittedly are cute but it would be time consuming putting it all on.
We're not doing a sand ceremony because we just wouldn't keep the sand thingy. I'm sure they're pretty but we don't have lots of decorative stuff in our house. Your FI may think vows are cheesy but the day is about love and no one is going to rib him for his vows. We'll definitely be doing our own vows, especially since we can't personalize the legal ceremony.
You're getting so close! It sounds like you have it all pretty organized. Soon you'll be having fun and relaxing down there!
