I didn't do OOT bags. I decided to use my money to provide memorable experiences for the guests while they were in Cancun! It was the smartest decision I made!! First... you dont have to lug all of the bags and their goodies all the way to your destination and spend your precious time putting them together. Second, people are coming to your wedding to do things with you and would rather have a cool experience than some advil, pepto, and some chapstick! Most of the OOT items people bring for themselves when going on vacation-- and the rest of the items never get used.
I did a private Tequila tasting at our rehearsal dinner and chartered a catamaran for all our guests. Even if you choose to do a group dance lesson or an excursion or hire marriachi-- anything will be extra special and will provide lasting memories for you and your guests!
Hope this helps!
Oh that sounds like a lot of fun. I'll need to look into a catamaran and the dance lessons. Would you mind sharing who you used for the catamaran?
We did bubba's and I am SO happy we did - I debating filling our OOT bags to the brim and then thought the bubba's were more of a worthwhile investments for our guests as the husband I travel quite a bit and it's one of those things you don't realize how useful they are until you have one. Ordering them online was waaaaay cheaper off of the bubba kegs website and I got them sent to our PO box in the states.
However I ended up gettings bags off of bagiva. They were linen bags that were like a $1 each, so I ended up paying 30 bucks with taxes, shipping and what not. In our bags, we ended up putting the bubba, welcome book, and toys for the kids but that was about it. The feedback with just the bags and bubba's alone made me think they were so worthwhile.
That's a great deal on the bags! Everywhere I've been looking cost a lot more then that. Where did you get your welcome book?
