    Was wondering if they have a good selection of candies and disposable cameras at MP...I may add more!! As if now I am doing paper gift bags, since my ladies attending are very particular! Adding mini maraca key chains to the handles and of course palm tree decor. Playing cards, Advil packets, sleep masks, travel candle, mini massagers, and hopefully candy!! Lol our travel agent already sent great kits with the final paperwork including sunscreen, bug spray and luggage tags :)
    Any advice would be welcome...I have fans for the ceremony, maracas for the reception and hopefully disposable cameras (Fiance's request)

      This may be a TOTALLY dumb question... But where do you even get them developed anymore? Just blacks or Costco and like?? Like normal digital to print?

      We are going to use a hashtag instead and give everyone a "scavenger hunt" of things to photograph. Figuring people will all have smart phones and it's easier (and cheaper haha)

      I told my fiance that since we are using wedpics and everyone has a camera or iphone I think it is pretty useless but he wants them! We shall see who wins. I would rather spend that $50 on cameras on the hangover kits he know wants to do. I was not going to do the OOT, but now I have cups and will just fill those with some items.

       

      Yes or even Walmart would do them.  I would have to assume so as you can still buy them! lol!   To be honest I haven't checked but feel confident they would.

       

       

      Side question -  I saw some brides on here buy large bottles of meds and divy them up in the small baggies.  Yay or nay? I am not sure I want to do it, but it would sure help with cost and the ability to find things! Canada sucks for those sample sized things.

       

      Since I am putting the things in my cups, I thought - advil, hand sani, tums, pepto (maybe), gum, bandaids, and a treat.  (haha assuming this will all fit in a tumbler)

       

      On my wedding website (and probably in my newsletter as well) I listed for people to make sure to bring pepto, immodium, rx, etc.

      Unless they are still individually sealed I would say nay. There is no way I would take any medications that weren't clearly identified. The only thing I think where this could work is the sealed sleeves of peptobismal. I think you can buy a large box and inside are sleeves of 3 or 4 pepto in original packs.

      Staples has pretty good pricing for individual pack meds though! They sell them to places that have bathroom vending machines!

      I thought nay too!  Some ladies on here put them in baggies and gave a list of what they were. Obviously some are pretty self explanatory!  Most people I know would just take a pill from me that I say is Tylenol if they asked, but since it's a gift I totally get it.

       

      Shut up! I was just on Staples website and didn't see anything (I am sure I was - god I have been on a lot of websites lately)  Did you see one in Calgary who sells them? cause I will drive across the city if I have too lol.

       

      ETA: I went back to Staples and looked and yes they sell it, but it's all household type packing, nothing sample/individual size :(
