There is a whole post on koozies (insulators) somewhere on the site. Tons of people are doing them - including me!

I am going to put ; jamaica brochures, a little 25 cent tropical calendar from Micheal's craft store and a mini rum cake from Rum Cake Fairy bakes gourmet dessert cakes nestled in a hand-crafted keepsake hatbox for all occasions and gift giving that will be decorated in my welcome package.
Did you find a good price for clear luggage tags. I've been looking and the est I've found is for approx $8 for 5

Hi , I picked up the tags from Staples. I only got 25 pack instead of the 50 pack , so it was a little less. Here is the link that I found.Staples.com®. that was easy®. . I think the tags that you are refering to are self sealing tags which I think I am going to buy next because it will be a pain in the butt to go to staples and get the original tags that I bought laminated for .99 for a letter size page, or like 8 tags. The self sealing tags make it easier for me to do the tags one by one as people rsvp instead of having to do batches. Please let me know if I can be of further help.bunny_4.gif

Ann I had stumbled upon this website a couple of months ago. I was planning on buying the flip flop candles ($0.89 each pair) and instead of giving them out as favors, I am going to ask the resort to fill a martini glass with water at each setting and let the candles float in the water. Then I plan to tie a ribbon around the glass that says "The Perfect Pair". I just think it will look cute and give some color to my table.

Wow Kay. Thanks for the link to staples... So are the kind that you led me to the kind that you have to laminate yourself? How hard is that. I didn't quite understand. Or are these the easy ones? Thats a great price.

I don't think you have to give favors, I think people used to give almonds or chocolate, but I have been to wedding where people just had the bubbles on the table and had a little note thanking them for coming. I think I will do favors just beacuse I like this one and my fiance does too.

Ditto on the reco for My Wedding Favors - great site! Someone mentioned Two Hearts Wedding Favors also - I took a quick peek and can't wait to check it all out! The prices seemed lower at Two Hearts . . . I've been bargian shopping for a few different favors, so this will be a huge help!

 

BTW, I am so impressed with everyone's creativity!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
