They came out really cute. I would do a few as tests to see how well they hold up before you buy them in large quantities.

Here's a thread that I found that may give you some ideas:

I knew someone on here had done this before so I went looking for the thread & found it.
This thread has the pics of the mugs:

You are a sweetie!! Thank you for doing that :) Everyone's OOT Bag's look great and I picked up a few more ideas from those threads!! Now, I hope I have enough room in my suitcases Haha!!

Quick question: Did anyone buy bottles of Advil, Motrin, Pepto Pills and put them in personalized pill boxes or anything? Do you think people will use them if they are opened like that?

It worked very well but then I only had 30 guests to do this for, not 70! But I don't think you'll have a problem.

If you do go this route, just make sure that the store that you are buying them from uses sizes in numbers as opposed to Small, Medium, Large. You don't want to ask your guest for sizes in #'s only to find that the store has them in S,M,L! I had to learn this the hard way! LOL
And also ask that they respond by a certain date so that you're prepared & only have to make 1 trip.

I also made sure to do this when the flip flops were on sale for 2 for $5 and the store manager gave me an extra discount since I bought so many.
THANKS!!! Great advice!!! I think that is what I'll try to do..hopefully everyone will cooperate!:)
Someone on here posted a site for THE CUTEST personalized flip flops...I really want to put them in the OOT bag!!! Now, I think I might! :)

And a picture of the first aid kit (which had the band aids, meds, chapstick & hand wipe packets) & personalized pens that we ordered as well (ignore the ceremony fans). I also must say that the personalized pens were a hit too.

JUSTUSTWO,

Thanks for the info about the bags. I was actually just trying to figure that out. Oriental Trading has some personalized paper gift bags so I'm wondering if that might be a better idea that my original plan of the canvas tote bags...

This thread is awesome! I was going a bit crazy buying a little of this and that and after reading this really didn't need everything I bought. I think I will keep it a minimum of t's, flip flops, puzzle book, and one towel.

Thanks for the tips and sorry to hear about the mini beach ball incidents, that is exactly why I didn't even contemplate getting them lol, I'm always the target and I have horrible aim so I can never return the favor!

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
