    Grrrr....

    I need to go to our Michael's again, maybe after my afternoon nap. See if I can find some excellent deals.

    Heather - check out Dollarama for OOT bags - that's where I got ours from, they were just plastic ones - but they did the job - and held up to the two-week holiday just fine...they also have some canvas-y ones there now too. I know the Dollarama in Cornwall has them - not sure about the other ones!

    I find I'm STILL on the lookout for 'stuff' that would be cool in OOT bags - and my wedding was almost 1 1/2 years ago!!!! LOL I'm obsessed!! I keep saying to DH that I want to do it all over again - and this time get all this cool stuff!! LOL

        I did go to dollarama and got the canvas bags there, haha, now I'm regretting it- but I have to check out the ones in the cornwall- I forgot that there was even one there. Tomorrow when I go see you I will look. :P

            LOVE the idea of Hot pink parasols - it would look gorgeous!!! In fact, I KNOW i've seen some pics from a wedding - the BM's wore turquoise and had hot pink parasols - it was beautiful!!! I will try to find the picture (I can't remember if it was on here or on another forum..hmmmmm..

            I'll see if I can find it!

              Bored. lmao. Ask Carly- she complained of having nothing left to buy. Or like me, you could change your mind on things and go back and re-buy everything. haha the joy of being a bride.

              I think the journals are super cute. How big are they? Really small in size?
              Happily married since 2008

                Question: Do a lot of people journal? I go to university so I write all the time there, so when I come home, I have no desire to write anything. But I do see journaling things at Michaels and such. Is it something that a lot of people do?

                  Thx for posting...bc of you I went to Michaels and racked up on those travel candles (yay)!! Now you mentioned Pier 1, which I love, so I'll have to check them out also for extra candles.

                    Geez, I can only imagine ~ although stressful, I love planning esp. when everything is going your way!! I think I'll be a little bit sad when it's all over =( I have a feeling I'll be the type to go back and forth or of course go bananas buying too much and then I'll have to listen to FI say once again "why are we giving gifts? isn't it enough of a gift that they made the short list and are invited to the wedding?" *men <blah>

                    The journals are great!! I fell inlove with them as soon as I saw them. They are about 5.25 x 8 inches ~ a pretty good size for a dollar a piece =)

                    And while I don't think many people journal, I figured our guest can use it if they need paper or need to jot things down as most of them will be staying in condos so the traditional "hotel pad and pen" wont be provided!

                      Yay!! So glad I could help ~ yes def check out the Pier 1 candles. The scents are...."delicious" =) I'm saving those for the BM's and special family guests since they are a little more expensive, but nevertheless still a great deal for $1.88!!!
