    How many of you brides are bringing your OOT bags to your destination and how many are giving them out before you go. If you are bringing them down how do you plan on getting them there?

      i plan on bringing them down and having it in their rooms waiting for them when they get there (hopefully). Otherwise we are having welcome drinks and food that night and i can give it to them there.  I 'plan' on bringing everything down there with me in some extra luggage.. but i haven't tested packing everything yet.. eek!

        I too am planning to pack a suitcase w/ the bags to take down.  I wouldn't want to give them out early and then have them forget to bring them or not have anything to give them while we are away.

          We're actually arriving a day earlier than our guests, so I'm bringing the bags with me and putting them together once we arrive.  They will be delivered to the guest rooms the following day.  I really didn't want to take a chance of something getting stuck in customs or just not arriving on time.

            When my sister got married, we put together the OOT bags when we got there, and then gave them out at the welcome dinner.  I loved this idea so much.

              I am giving out as many as possible before we leave since we are going on the plane with the whole group and I cant pay for all those extra luggage fees (as well as other stuff I have to bring).  Also in Mexico, they have wierd custom rules about bringing bulk items so I would look into that if I were you.  Some people are meeting us there so those few bags will come with us.  I may have an informal get- together in my house before we leave and give them out there.

                We plan to give the bags out at our welcome cocktail party the night before the wedding. I wanted to put them in the rooms so they were there when the guests checked in, but the resort charges extra for that, so we'll save the money!

                  Thanks for all the responses!! I think  am going to haul it all down and put them together there to hand out. still have to plan some kind of welcome party, as im not staying at an all inclusive this could get pricey,, we are al ready paying for a full reception dinner with open bar for our wedding and dont know if we can afford to host and pay for a welcome party as well
