    that such a cute idea, are you planning on telling everyone how you've been doing that since you were little. i think that's sweet. I would either do them as place settings like someone mentioned or put the sand in them yourself and stick them in oot bags. I really like the idea someone mentioned about filling them up together at your wedding. Is your ceremony or reception on the beach?

      I read that in Mexico it is illegal for you to bring anything like that back from the beach. I am not sure about other locations though.... Carla

        I brought back sand from St. Lucia last year and my brother brought back sand from Kenya a few years ago. I would think it's fine, but who knows. I guess they could be worried about bringing little bugs into the country of something.

            I got them off e-bay. I'll try and find the seller's name.

            Here it is: iwuvgordon

            Check out my blog...most of my notes are in there. If you have 30 guests or less, I'll have plenty to offer for sale when I get back!

            I promise I will find time to post my planning thread before I leave. I'm moving my office and am supposed to be out by tomorrow then am taking the rest of the week off. As you can see, I'm really not being productive or much help moving! LOL

              Since, I am a newbie here... I just love your stuff. I am so excited about things because you have had so many great ideas. I am truely addicted to the site.. and my FH just thinks I am nuts, BUT he is loving all the new DIY stuff.

              Yes, I am having only about 25 people tops because I have had so many people cancel already even after booking. (little sad bout that).. but what can you do.

                definitely fill them yourself, people many people probably wouldn't bother doing it. Then hand them out at the reception with a note attached.

                What a great souvenir of your wedding!
