bump debi,

 

 

 

lots of OOT bag info here ...also, there is a whole section on OOT bags to the left. my bags cost about $6 including the multicolor label. everyone loved the bags and still use them for groceries, etc...they are machinewashable.

For the brides that already got married in Cabo, did you bring down all the items for the gift bags? We are worried we'll get stuck in customs and they will keep the items, as we are buying for 40 guests.

I've thought about this as well since I am making approx. 40 bags (one for each room). I intend on bringing a pic of the finished product just to explain how it works. Also I think that the red flag doesn't go up at customs unless the declared value is high or quantity is excessive. Bringing 40 small suntan lotions or 40 mini packs of pepto/aspirin I don't think qualifies as "for resale" purposes.

we were brining down stff for 60 people and i was def. worried about the stuff going through customs...what i did was split the stuff between bags and had some go in my mom and dads bag...i wasnt worried about the OOT bags but was mainly worried about the many bottle of sunscreen i had...

 

 

 

also, it is a little bit of a clusterfuck (excuse my french) there...so we got all clustered right before the button(you have to press it-get red and you get checked, green-you go through)....as soon as steve pushed green, i pushed him through with ALL the bags with the stuff in it. that way if i pushed red, they would only search my small bags with out anything in it.

 

 

 

if steve had pressed red, and i pressed red (which wouldn't happen) i would have left the stuff with my parents right behind us in line.

Thats a good point. I hadn't thought of that. It will be just my fiance and I that are travelling down together as our parents are coming from the east coast (and we're coming from San Diego). But we figured we would split the items between bags but hadn't thought that if he pushed the button and it was green to give him all the bags. Thats a perfect idea. I figure those small things won't be too big an issue, but we are also bringing our wedding party gifts down too, which consists of 5 men's Kenneth Cole watches and 3 women's fossil watches plus a necklace for my mom, etc. I guess there is no way to ship them down either. I have heard that it isn't such a good move to send anything through the mail. Thanks for your suggestions!

Please send along your gift bag picts. That would be great to get more ideas. Our wedding is in 5 1/2 weeks and we are trying to get the little things done. Although none of these things seem little once we start working on them.

We haven't officially put the bags together yet, however I've looked on bios and have seen magazine articles explaining the gesture. I intend on printing and keeping readily accessable if customs wants to see.

 

 

 

Thus far I am going to take a tip from Tammy and April and use canvas tote bags. I will iron on the logo as April did to make it more personalized. For the contents, it'll be the basics. F.Y.I. I intend on purchasing the snacks while I am down there at the local warehouse club called Home and Business. They have candy bars, chips, cookies, and trail mix etc. like sam's and costco. Thus far my Costco membership has expired or I would've mentioned them as well.
