looking for some honest feedback regarding OOT bags... as I look through past posts I suddenly got a sense of FOMO (or fear our guests will have FOMO). 


here's what we're including in each person's OOT bag:

  • color-changing tumbler
  • travel first-aid kit
  • aloe
  • sunscreen
  • hand sanitizer
  • SPF chapstick
  • kleenex 
  • gum
  • advil
  • pepto
  • wedding brochure/book/info (not pictured)
  • all in a standard paper gift bag

with all that, we've spent about $450 for the 60 bags/adults we have attending. the 5 kids will get some sand or pool toys instead. 


I had planned on fun beach totes/bags, but after talking with FH and MOH - sounds like most wouldn't use it. Sunglasses don't really make sense to me, since I think (*hope*) most people pack their shades for Mexico :) 


I don't know - maybe I'm overthinking it, but is this enough of a gift bag for our guests traveling all the way to Mexico? I'll also add, we are bringing some adult pool toys like beer pong and floats for everyone to enjoy. 


thanks friends!

Hi - That looks great.  I wish I would have done paper bags.  I am glad someone is still here in the forum. 


I had to reschedule our wedding due to the hurricanes from December to July and our guest list dropped from 45 to 25 or 28.  I bought alot of stuff...

Hi!! That actually looks pretty useful  for guests!  I'll maybe add bug spray (wich you can buy in walmart onsite at a good price in the pharmacy section!) and a gatorade powder mix! 


Happy planning!!

These bags are awesome! Mine also have mosquito bands, Shout wipes, ear plugs, Emergen C, sunglasses, and we are bringing fans to place on the chairs for the ceremony since it will be outside.

    • 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.
