I've been trying to decide if I want to include these in my OOT bags. Not sure people will actually use them, and it's one more thing to pack. Any thoughts or advice from brides who added them? Thanks in advance!

    I was thinking about doing the same thing, but I am thinking of canning the idea. I read a few reviews saying it is a waste of money because people WILL bring their own cameras, so me not purchasing them will save us money for something that will be used!! Good Luck

      I brought one with me on a recent vacation to the DR and I didn't even us it! And, I really thought I was going to. I would consider packing them if you were doing a group snorkel tour or something, though.

      We're doing a group excursion to Dunn's Falls, but I am starting to think people won't use them. Also, where do you even take a non digital camera to get the pics developed these days?! Worried that even if people use them they might not actually ever get the pics and then it'll still be a waste. Hmm.

        CVS should be able to develop them no problem. Maybe you could collect them at the end of the excursion, or have someone in your bridal party, and get them developed and tell everyone you'll share them? I know sometimes when you go to weddings they put disposable cameras on the tables with stickers saying to take pictures & leave them... maybe something similar to that?

        That's true. Something to consider for sure! Here's what I have in the bags so far. I think I need to stop. Haha.

         

        OOT bags:

        welcome letter to guests
        ID/money holder
        post cards & pen
        plastic tumbler with straw

        s'mores for our welcome bonfire
        sudoku book/word find book
        coral bottle stopper
        Oh Sh*t Kit (shout wipes, emergen-c, advil, pepto, alka-seltzer, band-aids, aloe, hand sanitizer, chap stick, tissues, altoids)

         

        underwater camera?

          That sounds great! Where did you get the coral bottle stopper? 

           

          Also, I especially love the s'mores idea. But I'd be worried about crushing the graham crackers in route. :)

            The coral bottle stoppers are adorable. I did a post about them here (includes info on where to buy) http://www.bestdesti...rs-for-oot-bags

             

            And I'm just bringing a couple boxes of graham crackers, bags of marshmallows, individual Hershey's bars and cellophane bags down with me. I'll assemble them there before tossing them in the OOT bags! It'll look something like this.

             

             

            I'll post pics of mine once I do a trial run. :)
