OOT Bags - Need Help on the Kits


Recommended Posts

Hello Ladies,

 

I'm wondering if anyone can help me figure out some of the kits that everyone else seems to put in their OOT bags.

 

1.... what is the purpose of packaging the items inside a clear plastic bag? Is this an airline requirement??

 

2....then of course, where do you get the clear bags and the toppers? Are the toppers cardstock paper, or something more like cardboard?

 

3....what kinds of kits is everyone including? I've seen the survival kits, snack kits, oh sh!t kits...any others I'm missing?

 

If anyone has some templates they could pass along, I would greatly appreciate it...I haven't been able to accumulate the 150 posts since I almost a year ago..I read more than post I guess. Emails are appreciated! silla.feliz@gmail.com

 

Thanks!

1) seeing as how these items go into checked luggage it is not an airline requirement to have them in the plastic bags rather then just making it easier and neater instead of having all the items just put into the tote bag loosely. 2) you can get Avery brand bags that come with the toppers from staples, but I think they are pretty small depending on how much stuff you want to put in them. Alot of brides just use generic ziplock bags from the dollar tree/dollarama, just look for ones that don't have anything on them, I've also seen bio hazard bags used which I think were picked up from either a hospital or doctors office. The choice is yours if you want to use cardstock of regular paper for the topper. I think using a lighter weight cardstock is best as it will hold up better than regular printer paper. 3) I'm definately doing a survival kit, not sure about an oh sh!t kit, it will depend on how much I can fit into the survival kit, if I have an over flow of items then ill do the 2 bags and just try to separate the contents accordingly to the theme. I do want to do a snack kit because I'm not staying at an all inclusive resort but this will be decided last minute depending on how much room we have left to pack. No templates yet for me as I haven't started designing them yet, but get creative!!! They really are simple if you have publisher or a similar program

No airline requirement, just as Dazeydawl said, it's more or less to keep things organized in one place rather thna loosley in your OOT bag.  Also, I htink the clear bag is great because your guests can get a look inside as to what is in them.

 

2....then of course, where do you get the clear bags and the toppers? Are the toppers cardstock paper, or something more like cardboard?

I bought my clear plastic bags from the Dollar Tree,  They were 1 quart freezer bags.  $1.00 for a box of 20.  I made my own topper using a template from this website.

 

Here is mine:

 

 

I used white cardstock from Walmart - very inexpensive.

 

 

 

3....what kinds of kits is everyone including? I've seen the survival kits, snack kits, oh sh!t kits...any others I'm missing?

 

I only made Survival Kits - I did feel like going overkill since I had other items in the actual OOT bag.  The items I included were Kleenex, antibacterial gels, personalized lip balms, nail polish remover pads, Advil, safety pins, gum, nail file, Snapple & Crystal Light individual drink mixes for water bottles, Tide handwash detergent packet, shout out wipes, pepto-bismol chews, bandaids.

 

If anyone has some templates they could pass along, I would greatly appreciate it...I haven't been able to accumulate the 150 posts since I almost a year ago..I read more than post I guess. Emails are appreciated! silla.feliz@gmail.com

 

Thanks!

1. I definitely think it's just a cheap way to package things. No airline requirement that I know of!!

2. The dollarama or dollartree has the clear packages for really cheap. Nothing says you couldn't make nicer non transparent ones :)

3. I'm definitely doing the hangover kit..just add water :) I'll put advil and probably gravol or pepto/tums. I'm also putting aloe, lipbalm with SPF, bandaids, safety pins, etc in the just in case bag.

it's sort of a survival kit, but more for the night of/after the wedding

 

hangover kits:

  •  propel or gatorade single packets where you add it to water
  • 2 pack of advil/tylenol
  • maybe a 2 pack of bepto.
  • maybe adding cheap sunglasses or those sleeping face eye things (if cheap enough)

I need some help with the survival kit...the topper of the bag is going to say the saying "Too much booze, too much sun, too much food, too much fun" -- TOO CUTE! I love it :)

 

So, what I have done so far is this:

First Aid Kit

Tissues

Tums

Mouthwash

Floss Picks

Tide Sink Packets

Hand Sanitizer Wipes

Cream

Body Wash

Hand Sanitizer

Tylenol/Advil

Imodium

Safety Pins

SPF Lip Balm

 

For food we have the imodium and tums. As for booze, I have the advil/tylenol but no electrolytes - are they needed? So, I haven't really included anything for sun burn - just the lip balm....should we do Aloe too?

 

Question for you gals - when we burnt in mexico, we used aloe vera and it made our skin VERY tight feeling which was extremely painful - we ended up just using body lotion to hydrate and it helped much better than the aloe did. Anyone else had this experience?? We won't use aloe anymore, so I wasn't going to include it in our kits....Thoughts?

they have aloe vera LOTION *but may be a little bit more, but maybe buying bulk & distributing into bottles yourself is cheaper?*, we love using that!! however i'm still putting aloe in the bags, it was $1 at Target & it was tropical & cute, bright colors. Aloe is good before the burn, like before the RED burn.. you don't have to put it, because like my FI says, don't waste money on things you KNOW you're guests know they will bring or buy (sunscreen lotion & aloe) but I didn't listen (when do i ever listen to him?!)

 

 

PS- Just "food for thought" I would say you could get away without the electro lites but i think it's really a good idea.. & with the propel single packets you can get them for .10-.20 cents a packet at Walmart.. maybe even cheaper if in bulk (Big Lots, just watch expiration dates)

Thanks - I'm going to have to think about the aloe and propel. We have a target in town that will be opening in a week - I could always check there once its open....but walmart doesn't seem to have the small bottles of aloe...neither does the dollar stores....I guess I'll have to look around.

silly question.

how do you do that?

take what i said i "s & then reply to that.. is that what the "" multi is for? or the quote? or do i hit reply (wow, i really am new at this blogging stuff)

 

 

can you try to have them shipped, maybe call target & explain you don't have time for their new store? & see if they can ship them for free?! i can take a picture of what I got & you can show them if you're interested! just let me know what you need & i'll do my best to help you!

quote = puts what you want to reply directly to, into your reply message.

 

reply = puts it at the end of the thread

 

multi = never used it, but i'm assuming you can choose more than one post to 'quote'???

    • The two people who matters the most in this situation? You and your partner. It is nice to get an outside opinion but if you have too much of it? It will get messy! I am replying you my response after that has happened to me with my wedding. Although it is quite hard, do not think of the negative opinions. The people who will turn up to your wedding? You will always cherish them even more! That is what has happened with me because my friendship with the people who attended my wedding has improved so much more that I know I can rely on them and they can rely on me. It is disappointing that people will not attend your wedding but it is their loss, not yours. At the end of the day, when they see pictures and videos of your big day they will definitely regret missing out on such event. I am waiting to deal with the aftermath of my wedding from my so called friends, if they say anything they will get an earful! Happy planning, your big day will be worth it! Keep us up to date!
    • Wow, I cannot believe it's been over a year since I last posted! Better keep everyone up to date as everything ended up positive in the end! So, let's start with the situation with W. From my previous post, I have serious consideration removing him from the groomsmen because of the hurtful things he has said to me. Not too after my second post, I asked him once again whether he wants to be part of the groomsmen. The response was around the lines of "I need more solid information". This was before the restriction were lifted. Then he said it was down to finances yet again, even though he said he could have made it but because of what A said, W didn't commit no more. As W was being difficult, I decided to drop him as a groomsmen altogether and replaced him with someone else. Plan B was already in motion and tbh, I wish I did this first to avoid any hassle. Everyone who got invited in plan B all committed themselves to the wedding!  The situation with A is this. I was feeling sad that I was losing this friendship and that spark with him was gone. By the time it was gone, A was "ready" to meet up with me to discuss life and the wedding. When I said I lost spark with him, I really did. I knew that he was ready to meet up with me because it was convenient for him. For example, he wanted to meet up with me because he was driving past my house or was in the area visiting his relative. If he was not doing those things he would not want to meet up with me. Needless to say, every time he kept asking, I just said I was busy. I think deep down something was not right between me and A but he does not want to acknowledge it. I know that W had FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) because that's what he is like. Around the end of last year, rather than messaging me about the DW he went behind my back and asked my SO. He was scared of asking me because he knows if he asked me, I would literally get angry at him. He's nosey and was happy enough to be part of the groomsmen but he listened to A. W didn't asked once but twice to mg SO. My SO just said that she was busy and should ask me about the wedding, not her. W did messagee but not about the wedding plans. I felt this was a sly move by his part. If anything not having A and W there was a blessing in disguise. I met up with the other 4 groomsmen over one weekend and it turns out it was the most fun we all have had for a while. It was as if we continued from the previous conversations in the past as if nothing has changed. I am so glad and proud of this group of groomsmen and glad the other 2 dropped out. The suit fitting went really well and we hung out again to see whether the suits altered fitted or not.  Unfortunately my SO UK group, 5 out of 6 declined the invite. Only 1 accepted it. The other 5 had reasons ranging from good ones to poorer ones 😅 As long one of them turned up then it was good enough for us. My SO's bridesmaids also were amazing. No problems caused whatsoever and they were really excited that our wedding was abroad too! To make things work out before our DW, myself and SO planned out 2 weekends for both groomsmen and bridesmaids to hang out before the DW. We did this so we would not encounter any awkwardness for the first time in DW. Lo and behold, everyone got to know each other and we really are happy that the wedding party weekend went smoothly. I will keep this ambiguous because I do not want A and his group finding out. I got married to my SO this year. What time and month? I will leave this intentionally blank. The wedding itself was everything we have expected. The wedding planner was amazing. The photographer was also amazing too, so glad we went for him. The sneak peak photos are absolutely great, couldn't imagine that the photos turned out like that. The good itself was okay could be better but could be worse. The first dance went relatively well although my SO managed to cock up s move which only I know hahahaha. The wedding ceremony itself went really quickly. I was a bag of nerves to which one of the groomsmen bought the groomsmen a shot each to calm everyone down. It did calm me down for a little bit but the nerves started again with the speeches. I got emotional throughout the speeches. I was not expecting the tear up with the best man speech at all. My speech was meant for my SO but for some reason everyone in the room also cried as well 😂 The all night dancing and fun was the best bit. When every serious part was done, I was able to stop being nervous! The fun went through the whole night and I can see everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was as if myself and SO correctly guess that lockdown restrictions would end. Everyone was thankful that they managed to take part in the DW because they all have been stranded in the country for 3 years! Do I regret having a DW? Hell no! Although it was a smaller party everything was all under control. Everyone had a great time!  More information about my UK group. Some of them congratulated us which was nice to hear. Those congratulated us, I can keep contact. They knew it was difficult coming to DW. At least they are mature enough to say something about it and they did not get the invite. On the other hand, A and W kept constantly monitoring my account for updates along with my SO. It got to the point that W really FOMO that he I followed our stories/posts. A on the other hand is completely out of order. He was invited to DW but made it really uncomfortable to me that he was not happy with DW. During that week, he went on holiday to Spain. I get that Spain is much more cheaper than my DW but it still is annoying. A also said before that he has a few weddings to attend during our DW month. He has not attended any weddings which makes me think that he has lied to me. A and W has lied to me saying it was costly for them to come to my DW. They have both bought PlayStation 5 and went to many designer outlets. If they are so stumped on money why go and buy things? It just shows that they are not good friends at all. Overall good DW. I do not regret it one bit because I know if I did it in the UK, the experience will be a lot different. The UK definitely not as scenic as my DW! 🤣    
    • Hi ! Myself and partner got engaged 7 months ago and we quite quickly asked our friends who we wanted in our wedding party (e.g bridesmaids, MOH and best men etc) who all agreed. After searching many English venues we have decided that we want to marry abroad, our dream is Mexico. We have been and priced this up today and we are incredibly happy. So we have put this forward to our friends and family who we really want there and now we are facing issues. My MOH and my partners Best man are together with a child, they now will not come unless we change to Spain or Greece. My brother, his wife and nephew can only come in one set week which isn't the time we want to marry and also will not come to Mexico. And both our Grandmother's won't come to Mexico.   What do we do? Do we carry on and go to Mexico with the people who will come or do we change our dreams and go to Spain or Greece?  Thoughts please, I'm getting to the point where I don't even want to marry as I'm fed up of friends and family ruining our ideas and dreams with their opinions.
