Hangover relief is the one thing I am regretting not picking up but I had a great idea the other night when trying to fall asleep. As our venue is 30 minutes away from the resort and we have vans transporting guests to and from, I was debating picking up two flats of Gatorade at sams club and picking up some mini bags of chips to hand out at the end of the night. I think it would be hilarious - or do you think too tacky. keep in mind that it's a ukranian/newfie wedding, so most people WILL be drunk.

 

and of course I would "wedding" the Gatorade and chips and put it into a fancy bag with glitter or shit, not just have a flat of it. :)

Haha we aren't Newfie and we will all be drunk all week!! We are already starting a poll on how often we think 1 person will not make it back to his room lol.

I think that's awesome!! Honestly whenever I travel I always crave things from back home and/or goodies. I'd appreciate it. Unless they bring their own they won't have munchies. I love munchies.

Hahaha. Yeah we have bets on how much some of my relatives can drink in one sitting at an all inclusive, so it will be quite entertaining.

 

I'm the same, I crave chips and what not when I am drunk and will stock up on some from the store during the day so I am prepared when I get back to the hotel. I love the snack bar but sometimes all you need is bag of chips and a chocolate bar to make this girl happy. If they had 5 cent candies available, that would be golden :D

Definitely not tacky! I say go for it - it'll make the ride back to the resort more fun :)

    We made SUPER fancy oot bags and guests greatly enjoyed them but our bags did not contain Bubba Kegs.

     

    However, we gave parents of the bride/groom Bubba Kegs before leaving for Mexico and they RAVED about them and forgot all about the oot bags. It almost made me wish we'd given those instead.

    I think this is a great idea, something I might steal from you ;)

    Nope! No one will think you are cheap whatsoever. They will shocked to have received anything like it IMO -- Honestly your guests will LOVE the bubba's!

    I didn't do bags. I did tumblers and stuck inside Advil, emergen c, Pepto 2 pack, Tums, 2 bandaids, hand sani and mentos.

    A full bag means nothing if it gets tossed and not used -- so tell yourself that. Focus on what should get used and you are golden. A bag and a bubba and munchies is awesome in itself.

    I loved the cup idea. Fiancé loved the hangover kit so we did both and it's limited to what fits in the cup.

    Bubba's weren't in my budget but had they have been that's all I would have done! Don't feel bad :)

    This is a great idea, I honestly don't think anyone will use the bags in my group. I loved the cozis as well but I was talking everyone and they said they are cute but they wouldn't use them at then at the resort or at home probably so I feel like it would be a waste.  Where did you get your tumblers from?

    We're doing the bag with welcome letter, map, and brochure of things to do/helpful info around the island. Maybe including a hangover kit but otherwise, I really don't think anyone is even expecting an OOT bag (unless they spend time lurking around this site lol). I figure they'll appreciate the snorkel sailboat tour more than anything thing with our monogram when they look back on the whole thing anyway.

    Dollarama for $2 each. Saw them at dollar tree for $1.25 but only had colorful ones
