    - Set of luggage ID handle wraps
    - Bubba kegs (they can bring them down with them if they want... plus I don't have to take them all with me)
    - Inflatable travel neck pillows
    - Pre-travel booklet (I'm putting one in each package with info about customs, the resort, who's coming, dress codes, currency, things to take, etc.)


    For the OTT bags, every bag will contain:
    - Welcome letter
    - Wedding time line
    - Clear Eyes
    - Travel size of Q-Tips
    - Tide To Go Stain remover
    - Travel size of Purell hand sanitizer

      I still need to work on gifts for our parents, MOH and Best Man.

      I'm thing of giving them a digital frame then some special gift each. That is going to require some hard thinking.

          You guys are going to think Im completely crazy...but I dont have a dress yet. Well I had one but decided to forfeit my deposit on it. It was only 10%, and didnt fit in the budget anymore. I really wasnt that in love with it anymore either.

          So now Im on the hunt for a dress. I went to Davids Bridal yesterday to try on a dress that I found someone selling on bravobride.com. They didnt have it in but I did fall in love with a different dress there. Its on sale for $200 off, but they wouldnt give me anymore of a deal with it being a sample. It needs a lot of work done to it..the beading is all messed up. But here it is...

          Click the image to open in full size.

          Not to crazy after I see the picture now.

          But than I found this tea length dress on ebay that I love. I feel thats so much more my style, but am unsure on pulling that off. I dont know what type of shoes I would wear in the sand...here it is...

          I have never tried on a tea length dress so Im afraid I think it will look cute, but than will look ridlicious. lol

          Any words of wisdom for me?

            I would go back to David's Bridal and find a tea length dress and try it on, just to get a feel for how the style would look on you. You can probably find a wrap/shawl to try with it that would resemble the picture in the auction.

            Either way you'll be a beautiful bride!

              Ok - here are some pictures of my progress this weekend since our T-Shirts came in. This is also helping me organize for my upcoming planning thread :-)

              T-Shirts, OOT Bag and guest goodies:

              All the T-Shirts have our logo on the front and the back is customized with "mob,fob,mog,fog" and of course bride and groom for Brandon and I.

              Ceremony Decor:

              I'm going for a very simple, no frills wedding and I have very few guests so I was going to use the resorts set up until I saw it-it's hideous. So this is my solution. I still need to find a way to edge the organza and tie the bows but you get the idea. Blue and green are my accent colors so I'm going to make the bows smaller.
              Click the image to open in full size.
              Click the image to open in full size.

              My DIY bamboo pillars:
              (With help from Brandon)

              The tape is still on, we're going to use a small gold marker to line them up to finalize them.
              Click the image to open in full size.

              The bamboo poles are 6 foot in length. We cut them to 3 sections each and to hold them together used pvc pipe with duct tape (yes, I found a way to incorporate duct tape into my wedding-my Dad will be so proud!) to hold them together. When they are fit together they don't wiggle at all.
              Click the image to open in full size.

              This is how we will tie them at the top to keep them in a tripod. The hemp cord is nearly invisible under the organza and easy to transport and wrap.

              So it was a productive weekend :-)

                    I'm doing swizzle sick favours. I have light (cotton candy) and dark (blue rasperry) flavours and I think they're really cute. I'll post a pic when I get home.

                      Brandon designed the graphics with photoshop or something like that then we uploaded the image and they printed the shirts. I also ordered stickers from them and the OOT bags. We're happy with the results.

                      One comment-make sure the colors in your software display as they will print, we ordered a test run shirt and Brandon ended up going back in and adjusting a little bit.
