Show me your favors!!

Recommended Posts

Ooh, Sherri - that site is awesome. Was it expensive to order items in bulk, or could you get a deal? I love that you can sort by fragrance for bath and body items. Do you mind telling me which items you selected? Have you received them yet? Were you happy with the product? Sometimes I feel like the items I order online will end up being disappointing because I can't see them in person first. I'm a nervous online buyer!

I wasn't going to do favors at all because of the OOT bags, but you guys inspired me and I am doing the fans/programs at the seats and these at the dinner tables, more for looks than anything:

 

(and you can fill them with all kinds of stuff... I am going to do candy prob in these colors but you could even do the little wax burner in the center and the wax pieces in the other slots and it would smell awesome!)

I'm doing maracas in our wedding colors. The maracas will have our name and wedding date personalized on it. I can't wait! I think the guests would love it. I'm placing it on each person's plate -- they can use it once the dancing begins cheesy.gif

What a great fund raising idea.


I don't know if someone already said this, but I think home made candles and bath salts are a cute idea. Martin's mom just taught me how to make the bath salts - SUPER EASY! Just take some Epsom salts and put whatever scented oils in there you'd like. Then you could put them in a cute jar with a ribbon around it or something...

I actually did the bath salt idea for office friends christmas gifts. I put the bath salts into plain glass ornaments and tied a ribbon on them. Very cute and exteremly cheap

Hey Susan, I'm ordering them through my WC. She's taking care of the favors for me. I'm paying $4.50 per pair to have our names personalized. It's less without the personalization ($1.50-$2.00) but I thought it'd be great to have our names and wedding date on them. If you are interested, I can ask her where she's ordering them from. I've tried looking online to see if I could order them myself but everything I found were too plastic-y/cheap looking. And I love how these say "Mexico" on them!

Hawaii key chains
Hawaii coffee mug
Hawaii shot glasses
Hawaii magnets
Hawaii Notepad/pen
Hawaii luggage tags

it was not that expensive (for me) and I am still in my budget. I ordred for 15 bags. I was very happy with the products. It came VERY quickly. I mostly ordred the stuff that say "whtat happens in hawaii stays with you forever" i tried to keep in that theme but the coffee mugs were too expensive...i did buy me one lol

i could have gotten the items cheaper if i would have shopped in hawaii but I will not have time to do anything extra so it is done.

my cousin is ordering the pen/pad for the BS gift bags

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
