I really wanted door hangers/do not disturb signs, but I didn't want to have to deal with printing and cutting them. I did some searching and found this shop on Esty. She prints them for you, so you get the actual hangers and not just a PDF to deal with yourself. She is so reasonably priced and I LOVE how ours turned out. She was also really, really fast!

I also ordered these little hangover kit bags. She, too, was super fast and they are so cute. Perfect for some individual pill packets!

I got my guests the following:

Tumblers
Oh shit kits (Advil, pepto, tums, emergen c, band aids, nail file, hand sanitizer, and mentos)

Tumblers and Meds were all used and people asked for more. Bandaids were used. Can't say forsure about the sanitizer or nail files.

I got my girls beach bags and all of them were used. They were larger ones that also could hold towels. Hind site I would have gotten each room one.

I also got fans for the ceremony chairs. Unsure if they were used, as the ceremony is a blur but we didn't have any in the wedding office the next day when we picked up our stuff.

Not an oot, but maracas were a HIT.

I also wanted to say that the luggage tags were used by almost everyone. The ones who didn't wish they had, as it was very easy to identify luggage!

@JenniferH114 - those bags are SO cute! I think I'm going to return the ones I purchased on Amazon and get some from here instead!!!  THANKS! :D

 

@calgarybride2015 - thanks for the tips.  I purchased beach totes for everyone so I'm hoping they'll be used and am doing a OSK as well.  I was on the fence about luggage tags but am thinking maybe I will whip some up from the sound of things!  THANKS!

Great thread! I've been buying products every time I find a sale. I was going to buy the advil tubes for $2 a piece, but then I found a coupon online for $3 off advil.. So i've been buying the 24 packs of advil ($4.79 at No Frills grocery store) with the $3 off coupon and getting them for less than two dollars! 

 

I'm still waiting to decide if i'm going to buy the blank bags and do iron on transfer, or if i'm going to wait for weddingchicks to have their tote bag sale this year.

 

I really wanted to bring tumblers, but they would be a bit much to pack

I say if you don't wanna pack the tumblers do a nice beach bag if that's in your budget. I got my bridesmaids each one on sale at la vien rose for $3.99 each. I didn't think they'd get used and I saw them each day. Everyone loved them and that they could spot us based on our bags. Hindsite I would have gotten every room a bag :)

@perianjay - you should check Amazon.  I kept trying to find sales on the individual travel tubes but ended up getting boxes of individual packets of Advil, Alka Seltzer, Dramamine (we are doing a catamaran cruise the day after the wedding) etc. on their for 60 people.  Each purchase was roughly $70 or less.

I ended up designing my own transfer and buying bags from cheap totes . We just ironed them on yesterday and they turned out fairly good all things considered . Yes the wedding chicks one was nicer but it ended up being like 1.50$ vs 3.25$

Ohh fun! You're renting the whole catamaran?? That's really cool!

Saw these on the B&BW website today...they would be really cute in the OOT bags, they names are based on love.  My guess is that they are fore valentine's day.

I got my bags from wedding chicks. They have almost like a Groupon deal type of thing on this website called Gilt.com and I got two gift certifies off there it was $150 for a $300 gift card so half price. I have seen them do this several times. I have also seen ones for Wedding Paper Divas right after we ordered our invites .. It was a major bummer haha. The site always has new deals but the host wedding brands often.

disposable cameras is a good idea! i think underwater cameras would be good if people were gonig on a snorkeling excursion


Any good finds on the underwater cameras?
