We sent some in boxes and some in bottles by themselves since we ran out of boxes. Honestly, I was a bit upset because I paid basically the same for the boxes than the bottles themselves. I figured it would be cheaper for the bottles but since they are a different size of parcel the cost comes out to about the same. We paid about $1.40 for ea on both bottles and boxes.

 

We used plastic bottles....if you already got the glass you may not have an option and will have to box them up. For the cost it is so much more worth it and looks much nicer wink.gif It was hard making the bottles look nice since they had the stupid stamp right on the bottle

If you order from sandartsupplies.com they have the perfect boxes for the bottles they sell. The bottles are 6" tall, not very big at all and the it fits snugglie in the box. I purchased some shredded paper just in case. I'll let you know how it works out for me. Working on them as we speak.

 

I purchased:

40 bottles and boxes (came with cork)

40 boxes

shredded paper for boxes, just in case

sand

shells

cocktail umbrellas

parchment paper I had

ribbons in colors of wedding

raffia

small charms for the outside

 

I will include a save the date magnet I ordered from vistaprint.com

 

I'll keep ya posted. I'm so freaking excited!

Can't wait to see them come to fruition!

I love this idea. I think we are going to use them as thank you notes when people book their trip. I think I'm going to try and hand out as many as possible to save on mailing costs. Plus I want to see at least a few people open them :)

Hey Girls,

 

Just an idea- but in my culture (i'm colombian), its customary to hand deliver wedding invitations.  My FI and I are going to be calling friends and family that live nearby and personally deliver the MIB.  It's really gonna help us cut down on the cost of shipping.  Plus it adds a really nice personal touch!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
