    I gave my BM's and MH a Silver (925) necklace and bracelet set I found on eBay. Our theme is starfish, so I looked for something that had to do with the theme so that all of them wear the same jewelry for the wedding.

    I placed it in a big box, which I had individually wrapped (both the box and the top) with scrapbooking paper that looked vintage. I then wrote a little poem and made a mini-gift booklet and placed atop each box. Here's the end result:

    For the MOG and the MOB, I am ordering some flowers from the ship's florist. We are getting married harborside aboard the Caribbean Princess at the San Juan harbor!

      Also, I really didnt want to lug oot bags down with me do you think it is OK to mail it to my guest a week or two before my wedding and they could bring it down themselves? Or is this cheesy?
      All of our guests are in Calgary so we're going to either hand deliver our OOT bags or have a pre-mexico get-together and hand them out then. I definitely don't want to bring them with me!

          I am doing something similar to OOT bags for my MOH and bridesmaids. I bought these super cute straw beach bags that are lined with sequins and I will be stuffing them, a personalized beach towel, magazines, tanning oil, body spray, bikini, coverup, flip flops, under water camera, bamboo beach mats, a necklace (to wear day of wedding) a frame & Margarita glass (Which I have decorated to match each of the girls personalities) and for my MOH I will also be including a special gift which no one but her and I would get the meaning behind it lol

          All of the girls are going to be down in Cancun for a week so I wanted to get them something that they will put to use and will come in handy in case they left something behind at home.

            Love all of these ideas! We only have 1 attendent each, and are helping them with their trip ($200 each towards cruise). I've found some great ideas for my MOH, FI's BM is going to be a little more difficult (FI thinks a lot of this stuff is cheezy), but I think I may have found some stuff thanks to you ladies!! :)

              Wonderful ideas ladies, I am thinking of this necklace from tiffanys for my MOH. She has been my anchor throughout my life so it is perfect! I am also looking into some make up gift bags from sephora.

                      I'm looking some ideas too.  Not sure what to do because my MOH insisted on buying her own dress but I bought the dress for the BM and I'm planning on buying her shoes as well.  The BM is making his clothes as well as FI and GM.  He is a tailor.  We are paying for the materials and I want to get him something special for his work.  He actually has helped me pick the colors for the GM, BM and FI.
