    I plan on doing an OOT bag, probably no favors, unless something strikes me as the perfect idea!

    As for what to put in there, I've been trying to think of a list so I have some ideas once the time comes - like you said, lotion, bottled water, advil (my guests may need it!), snacks, itinerary, local travel guide, gift certificate to spa/golf/other entertainment, flip flops, t-shirt ...

      We tried to do cake boxes w/ the cake sort of like favors and everybody left without them! I would not waste my money unless something does strike any of you as a must have!

      Our OOT bags were also a huge hit. We had really colorful bags from Oriental Company screen printed with a design with our names, wedding date and Cabo San Lucas (I'll post a pic this weekend probably when I get around to posting all the pics.) Everybody used them as their beach bags.
      We included one of the following per person:
      -bottle of water (from City Club in Cabo)
      -mini Pringle cans (from City Club in Cabo)
      -personlized koozie
      -32oz water bottle w/ straw (for those mixed drinks.... or soda.... ha)
      We also added a Los Cabos guide per bag from our wedding planner, every guest found it really useful. And of course, the welcome letter with useful info and an itinerary.

        I like it! I especially like that you were able to pick up stuff while down there for these bags... that was one of the things I was worrying about - how am I going to get 75 sets of all these things down there? Buying it there makes a lot of sense!

          Yeah, we kept it simple and bought most everything down there. The one thing that was a pain was the water bottles. Tim's parents were able to get them wholesale price because they bought other personalized things for our AHR in Austin. So they filled one large suitcase with them, and then they used the empty suitcase to take my dress back with them to Austin.

            Ok ladies after reading everyone's comments about favors, I've decided to spend a little more than I had anticipated. But I think my guests will appreciate the thought.
            I want to buy wraps for the girls.

            And cigar holders for the guys.

            I thought I could drape the wraps over the chairs to go along with my turquoise and red decor theme.

                Thanks Natalie! I was recently in the Mexico City Airport and at the duty free shops and I bought a wrap for $9. They had every coloy imaginable. I travel through that airport all the time, so for me its no big deal to buy the wraps from there (no tax!!)

                But I also found this site: http://www.peachcout...t_pashmina.html The wraps are $9.95. The 100% pashmina or pashmina/silk blends will ofcourse cost a little bit more ($29 and up).

                  Hi all! I think my FI and I decided on silver luggage tags for favors. That way, people can use them on the flight home and it's not anything bulky or fragile for them to pack. We didn't think that they would be left behind, like other favors are.
                  Karla, where did you purchase the personalized koozie. I think that is a great idea for the OOT bags!!!

My FI is not so happy with the amount of stuff we are carrying on. He wants to ship everything down there. Are any of you doing that? Sorry it is kind of off topic.
                      I knew someone was thinking of doing M&Ms for a favor, so I just wanted to pass this along. It seems to be in many bridal magazines, but I thought I'd post this little deal anyway ...

                      You can get 2 lbs. of custom M&Ms FREE when you order 50 custom printed wedding favors by 12/31/06. Go to mymms.com/wedding7 and enter the promo code WEDDING7

                      Not sure anyone will be able to use it, but there it is!
