So I have been seeing so many amazing DIY OOT bags from you all!! This was the one project I've been most excited to get started on. But, reality and my FI chimed in saying how in the world are we going to carry OOT bags for 100+ guests down to Mexico?!
As much as I love the "Oh Sh*t Kits" and "in sickness & in health" bags, my FI doesn't feel it's a necessity, and it would add a ton of weight to our many bags we'll be bringing with us. So I'm back to square one.
Help this confused girl out please
-We have mostly families & couples going. But for our single friends rooming together, can we still get away with one bag per room?
-We're thinking of ditching the custom-made tote bags for plain old colored craft bags. I went to a DW where they used them and handmade a cute little hang tag to go on the outside, it was super cute!
-Instead of lugging down a million travel size toiletries, first aid supplies, etc. we were thinking of just taking a trip into town to buy everything. We'll be there almost a week prior to our wedding, so it gives us time before we hand them out at our welcome party. I also hear you can score some really awesome deals in the markets down there, and always haggle for a better price!
Here's what I'm thinking of buying down there, so it's a real deal "welcome bag" from Mexico!
*Mini tequila or liquor bottles
*Snacks from local suppliers in the market
*Postcards, possibly with postage so they can keep or send
- OR - Maybe address to us and have them send a favorite memory or well wishes ???
*Booklets of various excursions, and contact info for the agent at the resort [wonder if I can get this ahead of time?]
*Some snorkeling & swimming accessories for the kids in the group
*Our welcome letter with itinerary, contact info, & map of locations for the day of the wedding
