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!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
