    I was thinking of sending OOT bags/gifts with my invitations. I don't want to pack so much stuff, not that I plan on doing a ton of stuff for OOT gifts. Is anyone else doing this? Also, is December too soon to send my invitations for my May wedding? I thought it would be a nice x-mas gift too.
    We may still have a smallish gift to bring with us to the resort for everyone, like shot glasses or tee shirts.

      I think Kelly (Dragonfly) gave her OOT bags out prior to leaving for the wedding. I forget exactly how that worked. We sent our invites in April for our June wedding, but had sent std's asking for a rsvp in September and a reminder to rsvp in November. I don't think Dec. is too early because either way most of us end up having to track a few stragglers down for an rsvp.

      I sent mine out in Late March/early April for a July wedding. We gave OOT bags at the hotel.
      Kelly gave hers out at a party they had before they left, she couldn't have those plus all the luggage for her and her family it was just too much, but she said everyone brought their stuff on their own so I think as long as you let people know that its to bring to the wedding it would be fine, however I think sending them out in Dec. for a May wedding is way too early. I would say send them out in April. Think about how much can happen in that 6 months.
      Christine + Will (married 7/20/07) + Ainsleigh (born 6/25/08) + Nolan (born 11/9/10) + Delaney (born 12/31/13) = One Very Happy Family!

          i have to say that having been a guest at a number of DW - i want not want to receive the OOT bag before the trip, especially months before. I remember Kelly's situation and with her children and everything else it made a lot of sense for her - she gave them out 1 week before the trip, in person and to everyone who was definitely going.

          my advice is to give them out in mexico not withstanding some significant reason too!

            Yeah, I suppose it is too early. Thanks, ladies.
            I think now what I'll do is send the invite with the luggage tags I got at Michaels and then pack stuff to take down with us to Tulum for OOT bags.
            Is it okay to combine the OOT bag with gifts for parents/attendants?
            Since our group is pretty small I was going to give a small gift for coming out to everyone. Do I need to spread OOT bag, gift, and possibly favor out?
