OOT bags = Out of Town Bags....it's the same thing as a welcome bag. Wedding Chicks  http://shop.weddingchicks.com/ has really pretty bags that you can order. You might want to check out the thread on this site for OOT bag ideas also http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/topic/29980-my-oot-bags-the-big-hits-and-the-things-that-werent-used/page-114

I am getting myself and my two girls robes to get ready in and some kind of jewelry for them to wear with their MOH dresses.

If you look on this forum there are different threads about all sorts of topics like this- with vendor ideas etc. There are tons of threads about OOTs and how many brides handle them, and other threads about BM gifts and where to find robes etc.

 

Sometimes it's best to search for the right forum so your questions don't get lost in an unrelated thread, or a thread gets hijacked away from original discussion. There is no right or wrong way to thank your guests or bridal party and this forum has a ton of fabulous ideas and templates to make a lot of them DIY and more affordable.

 

Who needs a wedding planning book! Just start reading as much as possible here and almost every question you will ever had will have been answered already- it's a great community here for sure!

@@linaco80 - Make etsy.com and pinterest your best friend! There are a ton of ideas on there!

 

My fiance's family is from Spain and Mexico... wedding traditions are quite different there.. soooo some of these gift ideas are going to be strange to them. Jake said we were going to have to explain the sand ceremony to them...

@@linaco80 I like the idea of keeping the favours unique to you guys as a couple or maybe something that is significant to one of you. Brainstorm ideas and go from there. For our favours we are doing shot glasses. My fiance collects them (even though he is not a big drinker) and everyone knows that about him. So we found a website that personalizes them for weddings. The shot glass favours is really the only thing he is excited about at this point.

@@pddcmc Aww thank you! yeah little by little :) we are getting married about the same time :)

@@MissJen3 will brainstorm and my heart tells me to bring something unique from both of us...I am glad your fiance is happy with the shot glasses, man tend to be not that involved and they agree with all.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
