When Do You Give Your Guests Their OOT Bags?

Recommended Posts

I would say before we leave, it would be too heavy for your luaugage wouldn't it?

It's such a dilemma because if I was a guest, and I received something in Mexico once I arrive as a little welcome gift, I would feel like they've gone above and beyond in planning so I'd feel welcomed. But at the same time, holy man it's a lot to bring down! haha... I'm going to mail out the luggage tags with a flyer of a schedule of our wedding week. And then maybe give them just the beach towels and key/tip holders when we're there at the welcome dinner on our first night there. I think I'm going to opt out of the minibus stuff because I really don't think it'll be used and it all adds up! What's in your oot bags?

Ideally I'd want the resort to put it in each room but if they charge I'm going to go with handing them out at the welcome dinner. I don't want to complicate myself with too much to pack so I'm limiting the OOT bag contents to a few things from here and 1 or 2 things I can buy locally (was thinking little tequila bottles and shot glasses)?

I've been trying to figure this out too.  But I was told that with our hotel it was better to deliver them ourselves.  I have lots of younger siblings who are going to deliver them for us.

I think I've settled on handing them out to people at the Welcome Dinner the night we arrive. Just because we won't know when they'll be in their rooms, etc. We got the Presidential Package at our resort which gives the Bride and Groom priority check in services. So hopefully that will allow me enough time to check in and quickly package the stuff together during the time the rest of the gang are checking in. Thanks for all your wonderful ideas!

Same ideas as me! I plan on handing mine out at the welcome bon fire we will be having for our guests. The bon fire will be after dinner. :)

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
