      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!
