      Oriental Trading Company. Check out the Coupon Codes thread for discount codes for things like free shipping. We also got the playing cards, mini dominoes, and beach balls there.

      A note on the welcome books: they came from Hobby Lobby in the scrapbook section. Mom printed off everything that went in the books and then glued them directly on the pages. Isn't she great?

        I almost forgot: we also had to purchase the clips on the change purses separately (from OTC). The weren't expensive, but they don't come together. They helped keep the change purses in place in the bags.

          right after I asked, I figured it out that it was oriental trading :)

                My parents and 2 other guests stayed in building 30 and hung out a lot on the beach near Faisanes. By the way, my mom keeps going on about how beautiful you were at your wedding!! And Isaac almost went over and talked to your husband as "fellow forum husbands" so they could sympathize with each other. Needless to say, he sat quietly and watched!

                  Yes, Shannon you were GORGEOUS! I'm so anxious to see some of your wedding pics. Actually Mandy & Isaac and my husband & I all watched your wedding from a nearby beachbed; we hope you didn't think we were lurkers.

                    adding an area for guest room numbers is a great idea. i'm going to borrow that one!
