    Hi Ladies

     

    We are getting married in Riviera Maya and we want to do OOT bags  for our guests. We will be having around 20 people but I just can't think of what to put in them. I love thought about a few basics like sun screen, bug spray, and a sewing kit but I can't really come up with anything else. We want them to be useful and fun,

     

    Thanks for any help you can give.

        Hey Angela! Here's some info I've been collecting on what to put in OOT bags, here's some ideas: Map of the resort Tylenol mini pack Pesto bismol chewables Aloe Vera "Shout out" pen Hand sanitizer Bandaids Chapstick Bubba keg -- to fill up to take to the beach so there are less back and forths to the pool bar? Not sure if there are bars at the beach actually. This could also be handy if you have a tour day with your guests too. Zip lock bags or something for people to put their money inside so it's kept dry. Hair ties ...small little things that people may forget to pack but likely use on the trip. :) Hope that helps! P.s. Now this may not matter...but I'm also getting married at Barcelo Maya Palace and it'll be mine and fianc©'s 12 year anniversary! Super cool. Big huge congratulations!!! I'm sure you feel it's been a lonnnnnggggg time coming too. Lol. Cheers and all the best w planning!

            I'm not actually done my OOT bags yet (and I leave on the 10th!!) but I'm going to put a list of useful Spanish words in everyone's bags- things like please, thank you, red wine, white wine, water, etc. I can see those being quite useful.

            Love this idea -- key/tip holder with spanish essentials on the back! I can see my guests actually trying these out during the day if they are right there on their key holder/
