    flip flops for everyone
    and ball caps or visors
    custom beer cozy's
    votives (beach theme)
    dramamine (boat to our wedding)
    water bottles (with our logo)
    deck of cards
    spanish book
    brochure (vistaprint)

    Probably a few more odds and ends that I am forgetting. People loved them though.
    Hi where did you order the flip flops from? we keep finding "just married" but non just plan color

        For my OT bags so far.....
        Beach bags that I found on sale at walmart for $2
        Handsant. wipes - dollar tree - 3 packages for $1
        Lip balm - dollar tree - 3 for $1
        Aloe body gel - dollar tree - $1
        sun screen - $1
        tylenol - dollar tree- 1 box with 3 packets = 6 pills in total - $1

        For people that have little kids...im adding childrens sunscreen and floats with nemo, little mermaid, and spiderman - all from dollar tree!

        Things i still need to get - some activity books for the kids ( which will of course come frm dollar tree) I have also need to get some tums, bandaids etc.

        I really like the idea for the drinks for dummies - im gonna start to look now :)
        Not even rain could ruin my wedding day!

            Many BDW brides have gotten their plain flip flops from Old Navy. Usually they are 2 for $5 & come in a variety of colors.

            If you plan on buying alot & there is a store near you, I suggest going to the store. I bought about 35 pair & because I bought so many I was able to get a discount from the store manager.

                  Thanks you all for the ideas. Our wedding is a little over 6 months away and the little stuff, like the OOT bags, is starting to creep into my mind. I've jotted down ideas from here that I will for sure use!

                    Thanks for this thread, I agree too it's very helpful. I've gotten so many ideas. My wedding is exactly 1 month away today (30 days). We're also thinking of just doing the dollar store thing, some puzzle books and meds (like Tylenol and Dram) and maybe candy or snacks. I also like the idea of the travel mug. And the ugly fabric to distinguish your luggage from others.
