l think some guests would prefer the OOT bag simply because they may not be interested in excursions.  I know some family and friends will probably want to chill by the pool the whole time and will not be interested in doing anything planned.

When I went to a destination wedding and received an OOT bag I was so excited. I think it's a special touch that guest will appreciate. I'm actually looking forward to start putting OOT bags together for my wedding!

Originally I was not planning on doing OOT bags, but we ended up going with them. I think it depends on you and your group. I did not do the whole med's thing in them, since our group is small and they know what to pack when travelling, so we felt those items would not be used. I got free bags from vistaprint, and are using them more as a way to hold some gifts. Small items, like personalized pens and key rings, a welcome book with information and games and "meet the guests" pages, a hat, and our big-ticket items... bubba kegs and small video cameras. The only meds I included were some aloe and SPF lip chap. 

 

So, you can totally go big with the OOT bags too... and to prevent the bags from never being used again, we just put the location on the bags, not our names or anything like that. So you could try something like that.

 

We are also planning an excursion, but are not paying for it. We are just saying, This is what we are doing at this time. If you want to join us, this is what it will cost. If not, no worries.

 

Hope that helps with your thought process!

I have a candid picture of each person or couple, then their names, relationship to the couple, and a place to write their room number.

I just have a few pages like this. It looks like we will have a pretty small group, but I figured ah well. :)

Very cute idea!! There will be a few guests who have never met each other and this is a perfect way to figure everyone out!

    • 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?
