      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

            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

                  The maracas are so pretty! That is such a good idea! I am giving out these beach picture frames with our monogram inside.
