OK after a couple weeks of hard work and a lot of help from my amazing mom and bridesmaids we have finally finished our OOT bags. Thank you to everyone who has posted ideas, photos and suggestions! I could not have done this without you! OK so here is the breakdown.


I hope you all like them! And if you have any questions Please feel free to ask!


Bags: I was able to get these for FREE from my TA because the resort was giving them as promotional items. I was a little nervous when she was telling me about these bags but they turned out to be really nice. They do have the resort logo on the other side but it was not a big deal to me...especially since I am saving a ton of money! I also designed a patch that my mom and I ironed onto the bags the iron on paper totaled around $15.00 and then we bought a t-shirt material that was $10.00

Activity Books - I made them on my computer and I had these printed and bound at OfficeMax and would NOT recommend it. They did not give us a price quote and with the bindings they ended being $12 each! We definitely learned our lesson with that one. Looking back it would have been just as nice to print and bind them at home.

Kelly -- yes they do add up! I would definitely recommend waiting until the end of the season or after x-mas for the sales. I accumulated everything over time as well so it didn't seem like it was that much but after adding it all up it was around $850 total for everything!

    • 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?
