Opinions On My Oot Bags

Recommended Posts

My FI keep going back and forth over what to include in our OOT bag. Would love your opinions on this: 

 

1. two pairs of sunglasses 

2. Advil, tums, potato chips, etc. 

3. Welcome letter, etc. 

4. CD of our fav romantic songs 

 

 

Then we're going to try to find something once we get there at Cost Co that is indigenous to Mexico - like jalopeno jelly or something like that.

I think anything goes as a far as the OOT bags. It's just a nice gesture to make your guests feel welcomed. I think what you have is great. Some people do more some do less. It's really up to you. Your guests will appreciate it either way.

 

I'm personally not doing food or drinks simply because it's an all-inclusive they're already going to have some of that stuff in their rooms. Plus it's going to be hot and I'm already packing enough stuff so I didn't want to worry about any food melting (candy) or getting crushed. So I opted to send goodies as a thank you for booking. I found some Costa Rica specific goodies and I'm including that with a thank you card.

I really like the idea of adding something related to the location. A popular Mexican candy or food would be a great addition, and more personalized for the trip.

I'm also adding local treats - chocolates, nuts and candies. But I've researched a few places in pvr that come highly recommended and am pretty excited to go get it!

We are doing a DVD of a few of our favorite movies - I know a lot of my family likes watching while they get ready to go out and I know there are DVD players in the rooms :)

I have thought about doing flip flops…but I am concerned with this due to the fact I would have to ask EVERY guest what size shoe there wear… (ruins the surprise factor a bit, and a lot of extra work). I will be giving out advil & tylenol, tums, band aids, aloe, and maybe a few other meds. I will be putting some kind of snacks in the OOT bags, just not sure what yet. Love the idea for sunglasses (you can get them on bulk websites for cheap!). I love the CD idea also… just too time consuming for me!

Some Ideas:

Dissposable camera

Sunscreen

Chapstick

Hand sanitizer

bugspray

Go to the travel size section of walmart or target and see if they have anything cute.

You def need something that represents where you are getting married. Keychains, trinket, postcards..

 

This is also a great thread to look at. I think she did an awesome job.

I was going to put sunscreen in my OOT bags, but then I read a thread on here about what were "hits" & "misses" for other peoples OOT bags. They said sunscreen was NOT used by hardly anyone because everyone brought their own since they were going somewhere they knew they would need it.

Agreed!

My big purchases will be insulated mugs/cups and pool mattresses... Our resort doesn't have floats (only sells them for ridiculous price at the gift shop) and one of my favourite things to do on holiday is to lay on a pool mattress and sip a tropical cocktail! I want everyone floating their cares away!

 

We will then add a couple smaller things to our bags but these are our "big items"

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
