Recommended Posts

so i'm definitely feeding our photographer, and invited his wife to join us, if she's traveling with him...he's also shooting our rehearsal dinner, and i will invite him to eat, of course...i don't know where he's staying yet, but if it's with us, i'll pay for his cab to the rehearsal dinner...and may pay regardless of where he stays...so here's the ??...do i give him an OOT bag? or is that overboard?

ive gotten quite a few oot bags on DWs. but i dont expect it and its totally not necessary. it is a thoughtful touch though if they dont cost you too much and i always enjoy them.

 

DWs are a little different for me in that i spend more time with the couple and their families and am also more included in activities even outside the wedding. my DW couples are often the ones i remain friends with. even plan vacations with!

We gave our photographer and her husband an OOT bag (we made separate mens and womens bags for everyone). But, they stayed with us at our resort the whole week and travelled with us, so it was more like they were part of the whole thing and not just there to take the pics. I know they both liked them.

I say No to the OOT bag. It is not necessary. That said - I'm talking about when your photog is local. If they are coming from out of town, then yes.

OOT = Out of Town Bag

I think if the photog is local, then no... but if they are travelling from the states, it would be a nice gesture and they may take pics of it for you :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
