I had to fight tooth and nail for some kids stuff haha. My fiance was like "whatever, they're kids, they'll have fun anyway on the beach". I wanted to put some coloring books and beach balls, maybe some sand toys. He didn't grow up by the beach, whereas I did, so he doesn't know that while the beach is pretty fun, it's also nice to have things to play with. We settled with just the beach balls. There's only 2 kids at our wedding so I don't even know why he was so pig headed about it  hahah  <_<. I'll probably sneak in some sand toys if they fit in the luggage  :ph34r:

Like all the ladies before me I think you have lots. Everyone's bags are different and our guest will love them. I was not going to do a OOT bag. I'm just doing a bubba and a key holder. :)

Your OOT bags sound great!  I think your guests will love them!

 

We went fairly simple on ours too and everything was really appreciated.  We gave separate OOT bags to the kids and they all played w/ the things inside of them: sand toys, sunglasses, books, colouring set, some small toys ($1 bin at target!), a cup of their own.  Prob cost about $10 each for the kids ones total.  The sand toys were used by the kids and really appreciated by the adults.  We had a few teens and we just gave them the same as the adults minus the hangover kit, key holder on a lanyard, and boogey boards that we found for cheap

Thanks for the input ladies! I think we are going to just go with what we have - never thought of the fact no one expects them.

Best thing I brought? Snorkelling sets for the kids. We spent more time at the pool than the beach and they used them there. They never got out of the pool and their swimming skills grew 100%.

Best money ever spent for us too. We spend so much time snorkeling when we go down that it actually makes up for all the food we eat haha
