Great. Then his best friend (also his best woman) came over and when SHE proposed luggage tags, and he said why not, I was like " oh so now you're OK with non-unique gifts ?"
Anyway... I managed to sell him the medication presenting them as "hungover kits"... we'll put some travel size advil, alka seltzer, immodium, scope, a pack of tums, and an "energy patch" from Naturopatch of Vermont (goes well with my greem side).
I found some travel size non-DEET insect repellant and I'm going to put them in there, also goes well with my "green" side. Together with some after-bites soother from the same brand.
We are putting some water-guns (sold by 25 at OTC), flip-flop bookmarks, spanish for dummies for the engligh-speaking that don't speak spanish (I will have to find something else for my french-speaking not speaking english nor spanish), and I'll try to make a "who'who" and a welcome letter.
And finally, the "unique" touch will be our wedding favour, some plantable wildflower seeds paper wedding favors from Botanical Paperworks.
The bags I got from OTC (the large hibiscus totes, 9.99$ for 12) and I just need 5 more backpacks (I think drawstring) for my 5 single guys.
Total budget : 324$ without the backpacks for 25 bags (we aso have 32 guests and 25 OOTbags like yoAzul, that's funny), ie 10$ per person. I think it's reasonnable, given that this is the "wedding favours".
I must say I love the shot kits

I have like a month and a half now - still no FI outfit, GM outfits, ring bearer outfits, or on-site planning done - given that the wedding planner of the hotel quit and supposably was to call me back, but did not... I just hired a new one... also no music yet, and the ceremony and vows are not done either... brrr. I know what I'm going to do my coming week-ends !
Yesterday I was home sick and ordered everything for my OOT bags ! So now I just have to make my DIY welcome letter and "who's who" and at least this will be done...
Question : what do you do for the ceremony in terms of - not sure of the exact term - walking down the aisle ? Is there an order ? Will the groom walk down too, or will he wait for you ?

I've not done any OOT bags after thinking about it we don't do it in the UK and there are only 9 of us 2 of which are people I detest so think i'll give that a miss lol
We haven't sorted any vows and have only just got FI to sort out his clothes that he is thinking of taking lol he probs won't be back until 2 days before we leave for Mexico so no idea when we are going to get anything done lol
I think i'm beyond caring if i'm honest its turning into a war zone!! lmao

i finally emailed the possible transportation for our group excursion. no reply yet, or bounce back error and i can't find a single website on them now. i'm concerned they don't exist anymore. anyone know if sinal tours for the mayan riviera is still around?
ayita, i think it's up to you how you want your wedding procession to be. normally i think the groom seats his parents then waits for you. then bridesmaids and groomsmen, together or separate. then maid of honour and best man. then you.
