  1. My husband and I met 5 years ago through my brother. We connected instantly and within a year we moved in together. One of our first weekend getaways was to Atlantic City for my birthday. Last summer I received a call from my brother asking if I wanted to meet for lunch. We agreed to meet in front of my office around noon. As I’m standing outside waiting for my brother, I see Sean standing in front of our car. I was totally surprised and confused. He tells he has packed our bags and has a weekend getaway planned for us. As we got closer and it was obvious we were heading towards Atlantic City, he tells me he planned this trip for my birthday (which was a few weeks prior) Later that night before dinner he asked if I wanted to go for a walk on the beach. As we are walking on the beach he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It truly was one of the best days of my life! We knew from the start we wanted a destination wedding, so we started looking at resorts right away. We wanted an island that most of our family/friends haven’t been too. We found Iberostar Rose hall suites in Jamaica and fell in love with it. We had stayed at Iberostar in Dominican Republic and loved it so we knew we were making the right choice.

Dresses I wanted something beachy and flowy. I fell in love when I saw this one. The color of the girl’s dresses is pool blue and was a perfect match to tiffany blue. We purchased all of the dresses at David’s Bridal. Suits My husband actually found these on clearance at JC Penny! Total cost for each suit was around $60!

I printed the tags for the gift bag on label sheets. We gave the groomsman the sandals and belts they used for the wedding and a leather cigar case. I also made all the thank you cards. (Can only find pictures of the groomsman cards) Cigars Most of our guests are big fans of cigars, so we bought a humidor filled with cigars. I also purchased matchboxes from the knot wedding shop.

  5. I got mine yesterday! I was really surprised on how great these bags are!! Perfect for the beach!!
  6. I'm glad someone else likes them as much as I do! I really want something that wasn't cheap looking and that our guests can reuse. I spent hours looking for bags. I was looking into the recycle shopping bags too, but most looked cheap and alot of places had a minimum order of 50+. I only need 10. I was soo happy when I can across these!
