You could find out the times your guests are to be arriving a meet them after they check in at the pool or lobby or whatever. Or just do it at dinner each night. I say you save that money and get yourself a massage!


Haha now I REALLY love that massage idea!!

        Big Hits:

        the Cups

        the bag itself

        Sunblock

        Sunglasses

        Flip Flops

        Lanyards & Key Coils with Waterproof ID holder

         

        Things that were not used:

        Golf Balls and tees

        Beach Balls

         

        We packed other things but not sure if they were used or not:

        toothbrush, toothpaste, after-sun, meds (I don't think anyone got sick or had stomach issues)

          Update we just got back from our wedding in the DR the Bins made it!  No extra charges and they had so many bag handlers helping we didn't have to try to lug them around ourselves well worth the money we tipped the guy.  The Bag handler even helped us go through Dominican Customs with out being checked.  It was easy and we left the bins at our hotel when we left so we didn't have to lug them back.  the bins also help save on weight as the larger suitcases weigh 12 lbs with nothing in them.

            Along the lines of the massage ideas above, we are noticing a trend with our clients of giving their guests spa credits, vouchers or gift cards as welcome/thank you gifts! It is a fantastic idea if you do not want to have to bring everything down with you, assemble, then pay to have distributed to your guests rooms. Plus, it gives them something very relaxing to do and is really appreciated by your guests who are traveling so far for your big day!

             

            Happy Planning!

                  Posted Image Got our discountmugs.com today, I'm so impressed and happy with them. Rather than doing OOT 'bags', we are just stuffing our goodies into the mugs.

                  that is a great idea!!! how many mugs are you packing and what is the weight per mug?
