I have an idea of how many will attend (at least 60)...do you think I should start making/printing/putting things together based on that number and just figure on doing more if needed come November when we get our final count? I don't want to OVER order things like welcome bags and pashminas, but I also don't want any extras to be/look different than the rest because they were last minute add ons...
So I am in the same boat too. I am leaving some of the more in-depth projects til later- but if you see something you like on sale- go for it! I bought 30 canvas tote bags:
we are planning on getting them screen printed with our logo... but are going to hold out on that part. The bags were on sale at Eddie Bauer for $12. That is kind of spendy, but I am planning on this being our favors... and the contents are reasonable. Right now I am at $20 per bag. When we get to Mexico I am going to put some snacks, water and maybe mini tiquila bottles in them. I went to the Dollar store and bought my aloe, sunscreen, tylenol, playing cards, mini squirt guns, loofahs, etc... all for $1 or less- the playing cards had 2-3 per pack... mini loofahs had 4 I think.
Some of the other projects I will wait on. I am working on a Facebook with everyone who is attending the wedding, will be put with an itinerary in the OOT bags... I am working on the Facebook as I go but won't get them printed until after the RSVP.... Nov. 15 is our RSVP date as well!
