OOT Bags and Welcome Books finally done w/pics and templates

Recommended Posts

Hi Sharon, I know I have already commented on how great your welcome bags came out.  Just wondering if you could possibly PM or email me with the welcome  book you attached.  I am a little blocked as far what to do there... or what to write niccc80@yahoo.com

I borrowed ideas from everyone on this site so I will also post the templates I used. If anyone has any questions or needs help with anything else just let me know. 





I bought white drawstring bags from Amazon. $2 something a piece. Most items were from Targets travel section.

Inside I put in a zip lock bag:


Travel Advil bottle w/10 pills a pack pepto band aid pack  mini lint roller  sunscreen  aloe  gum chap stick Custom Koozies bottle opener keychains crystal light individaul packs  Welcome Books w/ itinerary, map of resort & thank you letter   (excuse FIs feet, he was messy with tv equipment!) stuff.JPG   Name Tag for Bags nametags.JPG   Templates - 

Name tags:






Oh sh*tlabel:





Welcome Book:








I didnt have time to get better bags & my label was too big to put over the top so I shoved it in the bag. Don't think anyone will care seeing as they will just rip off the oh shit label anyways...plus at this point I am over with the wedding details and just wanna get there!!






On to the welcome books. I believe I used Mandys template (thank you!)

The cover & last page are on a thicker cardstock and all the inside pages are on regular paper. I just punched 2 holes & tied ribbon.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
