    I have decided not to do oot bags now, just cause its going to get pretty expensive with almost 15 couples booked. So I think I'm just going to do a couple diy projects to give to them but nothing fancy, not only money, but time, I seriously have no time. I really don't know where the time is going, it will be time to leave before we know it!!!!!! yyyaaaaa whoooooo!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks everyone, and hope you're all having a wonderful holiday =)

      These are the bags I got from Vista Print. They ended up being $5.50 with the tax. For 10 bags was charged 69$ including shipping.
      Just really sucks, I ordered 10 for the amount of guest that are coming, the day after I ordered them I found out 6 more people are coming.
      So I am currently at 23 people. Like Courtney about 15 couples.

      That's also a good idea Courtney, what will you do instead? Have you figured it out?

        Hey girls, just wanted to give an update, I got a call yesterday to let me know that the flowergirl dresses are in and then today I got an e-mail saying that I will receive the guy's suit today via FedEx.
        I'm so excited.

            does anyone know how much the symbolic wedding is?!
            I can't find it in the packages.
            I am brain storming to see how I can make things a little cheaper to try and add a second week for our honeymoon lol.

                Great info! I was trying to write down the prices and figure it all out.
                Regarding the photographer, is there somewhere I can go to to look at the full list of prices? Your price was for the platinum package? Are there smaller ones?

                We are switching to Dreams Palm Beach for the second week (as I mentioned before), so do you think I should contact their photographer to see if they can do a TTD session?

                    How do I get a hold of Rick York, see if he'll do my ceremony? If he isn't free who will do my ceremony if I was to do a symbolic wedding, who did yours Nonnie? I would want to sign a fake paper as well.. I wouldn't want any of my guest to do we were legally married a few weeks before.

                    www.jalu.com this is the on resort photographer's website.

                    Thanks Nonnie for the price break down. Really helpful.
                    Looks like if I am able to do the legal ceremony here, and then the symbolic wedding there, we'll be able to afford the second week.

                    In regards to you spending the extra week at Dreams.. My MOH father was there in Dec, and they also went on to our resort to take pics for me.. and they said the Palladium was a lot nicer epecially for landscape.
                    I am not sure about the food. Just thought i add that!
