With our group, one of our perks is the gap points. We choose a $50 OBC for each room. I am going to mail a pre cruise letter with the luggage tags I made in the DIY section.


And yes, from cruising myself in the past I've always packed old shopping bags to put dirty clothes in. I'm not sure if I saw it here, or where I saw the idea of the pop up laundry hampers and I found them pretty cheap, I KNOW people will use them!

-Water Bottles with custom labels (although I may change my mind and do sports bottles with sticker labels)
-Doing a book with a welcome letter, time line for wedding day, info about the boat, and info about Bermuda

That's about all I have so far. Some things I haven't bought yet due to it being so far out. But that's my basic list.
I love the website with the cruise favors. I am going to add the cruise ship luggage tags to my gift bag!

Our guests are getting a shipboard credit as a part of their package too. We thought about adding our own money to increase it. Inside rooms are getting $25 and Oceanview and Balcony are getting $50. So if we do the personalized luggage tags and a welcome book is including additional room credit enough? If we decide against the room credit I'm lost as to what to include.

I love the pop up laundry bag as well I might have to add that to my list with that price!

Here is what I have/what I want to get for my bags:


~OTC blue paper fan

~Vistaprint pen

~Vistaprint sticky note pad

~Vistaprint hat

~Vistaprint postcards (i'm thinking about doing the post card idea that was mentioned above)

~Vistaprint photoshare cards

~Luggage tags vistaprint business cards in clear luggage tags from ebay

~Food: Maybe Tropical jelly beans, Lifesavers with a personalized wrapper, Personalized mints

~First aid kits: I got little pencil holders from Staples in one of their penny sales and I'm using those as the kit and putting these items in them: Tylenol, bandaides, sunscreen packs, Dramamine, Chapstick with Vistaprint labels, alka seltzer, mini hand sanitizers

~Crossword puzzles, suduko print outs, maybe playing cards

~Tissues packets

~Timeline, meeting times and places, welcome letter, list of excursions, map of miami

There are some great ideas on here. So far we have the following:


> flip flops in navy - on sale online at Old Navy for $1.99

> giant beach bags - we got these onsale at Ikea for $1.50. They are HUGE and a tarp-like material which will be great for sand. I had wanted canvas, but the shipping to Canada was rediculous and I didn't have any real time to research. I am now happy - they are white with big navy blue circles all over them. They'll be great for the week and if people want to chuck them at the end, so be it at that price!

> Hand snaitizer - on sale at bath & body works. Happens to be navy :)

> burning personalized cd's with our favorite wedding songs and personalizing the cases

> those woven looking hand fans with navy ribbon (many menopausal aged women attending - lol) - was my mom's suggestion for our 3pm ceremony in the sun.


I'll keep checking for new ideas!!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
