      Your kits are amazing!! And your welcome book looks really great! Those Tide sink packs seem like a fabulous idea!! Definitely going to pinch some of those ideas for our OOT bads. :) Thanks a lot!!

       

      A few questions: did you get any feedback from guests, now that your wedding has taken place? Did they really like them, use them??

       

      Also, what exactly was the photo share thing that you included in your book?

       

      Did you find that stuff difficult to pack? Did you assemble them in Mexico, or before you left home?

       

      Thanks!!

        Everyone loved the bags and were very surprised as no one knew we were doing that. I do believe most guests used almost everything in bags, especially the wedding week survival kits and the actual bags. I put them together down there, expect the wedding week survival kits, I put those together before we went down. I would say about 1 large suit case was just OOT bag stuff, maybe even 1/2 of another one. I had 6 suit cases total for wedding stuff, OOT bags, and clothes for ourselves and our son. The photoshare site,

          Thanks for the quick reply!! Glad to hear your guests loved the bags...I am hoping to keep it a bit of a surprise for our guests as well. Did you have a lot less luggage on the way back?

           

          I have heard of photo share sites...have you had many people respond with pictures? Great idea!

           

          Thanks! :) I honestly haven't been giving planning a second thought, but I know there's a lot to think about (love the petals and the candles on your tables, btw, and the colours!!). Right now we're working on invitations and then I might start dress shopping. I'm kind of liking being chill about everything. Hopefully it doesn't come back to bite me later this year!!

The photoshare site, www.shutterfly.com you can create a site where you and your guests can share all of your photos from your vacation and wedding.

           

          Good luck with your wedding and planning :)

            Great OOT bags. I really love your wedding book. I am also glad to hear that your guests like the bags, we just decided last week we were going to do them, so it's good to know it will be worth it.

                  I had 2 empty suitcases coming home that other family members used to put the stuff they bought down there in for the way home LOL. I was very fortunate that we had free upgrade to elite plus and also did the same for our son so we had 30KG each, which saved me and I had to use one of my dad's checked bags too!!! LOL My son's stuff took up some room too so it wasn't all wedding stuff. My biggest piece of advice for OOT bags is to wait until closer to your date when you have a good idea of your numbers. We had soo many people tell us they were coming and I jumped the gun on some ordering and ened up WAY over ordering. But yes everything was used, even the guys used the bags on their fishing trip!!!
