    Ok Brides and Newleweds....

     

    I need some help. I am getting married aboard the Carnival Conquest in June 2012. I originally wanted to do "Welcome Aboard" bags for the 30 or so guest we have sailing with us. BUT when I really started shopping around, I realized how hard it was to create "special" bags for women, men, teenagers, and children all the same. I'm starting to think I should have something special made for the women (monogrammed make-up bags) and something special made for men. And something different for the kids. HELP I'm confused and I would love to hear some suggestions!

      I would look at the thread that has a master list of oot bag contents. If you look in the cruise wedding sections they suggest things like tolietries, motion sickness bands and air freshers. I think someone mentioned putting money on their accounts for drinks and pool toys for the kids. I'm sure you can get mini bottles of alcohol past security, I know on carnival you can bring two bottles of wine per person, so you can give couples wine before they board. You really should try searching though, there's a lot of threads like this started.

        I like the idea of having something special for each member of the family for each oot bag, but it is alot of work. If you are up to it, I love the make up bag idea for the women, you can do the same for the men just a more masculine travel bag. For the kids depending on ages, maybe younger ones could get a cute bag with goggles and a coloring book and crayons, mid age goggles and cards maybe older could get the bags like the adults.

          Good Ideas...I bought makeup bag sets from Dollar Tree for my bags, They have a satin finish and different patterns (zebra, leopard, dots, ect) and there is a large and small one. I also got plastic ones with colored zippers and the smaller bag is the same material as the reusable grocery bags. It's pretty awesome for 2 for a $1.

          Welcome aboard and Congratulations on your up coming wedding.  I am a Carnival Conquest bride to  on Sept.19 , 2012 offshore on the beach in the Port of Montego Bay. The Reception will be at All-Inclusive hotel called DeCameron.   I have so far 35 guest and rising lol.  Here are some items that I thought about putting in my bags: a Survival Kit with advil, alkaselzer,altoids, gum or mints, motion sickness meds, pepto bismol , hand sanitizer a sticker that reads In Sickness and In Health on the Meds. Luggage tag with a business card from Vista Print inside with our wedding logo , a key holder to put around their necks with the same cards from Vista Print reading To have and To Hold your sign and sail card. A bag of popcorn with a label that reads Have you had a Poppin' Good Time? Thanks for sharing our special day ! Our names and the Wedding Date.

          Here are  some wordings that you can use for labels for your survival kit

          Too Much Booze (BC,

          Too Much Sun ( if you want to put some sunscreen lotion or lip balm)

          Too Much Food (pepto, alkerselzer

          Too Much Fun

           

          I haven't found a bag yet for them so I might just do a gift bag with my colors and ribbons.

          I don't want to spend much on bags 1.50 is the max and I don't see any cheaper. 

          Any ideas Ladies for OOOT bags?

          I have seen a template for the survival kit on her but I haven't saved it yet.

          Also I wanted to mention with my Bridesmaids I'm only having 2 their bags will be a little diffent.  I'm trying to find a straw bag for them and add some sunglasses , Brides Entorouge tank shirt and a passport wallet.

           

          I hope that this helped .  Let's keep in touch so that we can compare wedding info for the Carnival Conquest.  You can PM me.

                I am also making welcome bags but I'm making the adult bags very unisex... Kids I'm giving them a lil shovel and bucket instead of a bag full off little goodies and am making my own coloring books n crayon packets

                  I am just looking at cruise weddings now.  

                  I am so confused, so I am hoping this site and you ladies help me!

                  I read above about having the reception at a hotel when in port?

                  How do I inquire about this??

                    The shovel/bucket idea is great, I am glad you mentioned it that way the kids will have something to play with on the beach, thanks!!
