OOT Bags/ Favour Bags:
So last weekend I decided to get together with my family and Dan to assemble my favour bags. I'm really proud of them and I love how they turned out! I've been working on them since January and I was thrilled to see my vision come to life.
I think this has been one of my favourite parts of wedding planning so far. I knew from day one that I wanted to do favour bags and I wanted them to be good! Dan and I are really appreciative of everyone that will be coming to the wedding and we understand that they are paying a lot to come to our wedding so we wanted to make sure that they are taken care of and feel appreciated. I budgeted $700.00, for favours, but ended up going over since I now have 30 guests coming (I had originally planned on 25 people coming). Thankfully I bought extra things so that I was able to compensate for the extra guests.
This is a list of what I have in the bags:
- Personalized Red tote bag
- Personalized Red Mason Jar plastic tumblers
-2 Personalized pens with red caps
-1 Beach towel (MIL paid for them, she wanted them to be included)
-1 Memo pad
- 1 Deck of cards
- 1 Suoku book or Word Search book
- 1 face cloth (I was told by a TA that my resort doesn't have them)
-1 Oh $**t Kit with the following items: 2 advil packets, 1 pepto packet, 1 tube of sunblock, 1 tube of After Sun, 2 large band aids, 2 small band aids, 1 chapstick
-One Personalized letter
I found this little poem on this forum that I decided to use for the labels on my Oh $**t Kits "Too much fun, too much sun, too much booze, too much food," then I added "Don't worry we've got you covered ;)"
I got carried away with the bags and ended up going over budget =s
I'm attaching pictures of my bags, Welcome letters, and Brocures. Feel free to use anything you like. Also, please feel free to ask any questions =)

@TinkerSofi Congrats again hun on your legal ceremony! I saw the pictures you posted and you look absolutely beautiful! I think it's so sweet that you were able to include your family from Argentina to your legal ceremony. I can't believe you're leaving tomorrow! When we started talking on this forum you were still months away and so was I. Now you're day is next week and mine is next month. Where did the time go lol?
You're not weird at all! I'm the same way, I will constantly worry about whether or not everyone is having fun. I did at my bridal shower for the first bit, but then after a while I relaxed and realized everyone was. I know this sounds weird, but I'm worried that I'm going to need a vacation after my wedding lol. I feel like I'll be running around making sure all the wedding plans are going smoothly and making sure my guests are taken care of.
