Originally we were doing OOT bags.. When we added up all the expenses of the bags and thought about it a little more (guests prob not using everything we put in the bags anyways) we decided to skip the OOT Bags.

We are now doing travel mugs. There is a lot of input regarding travel mugs on this forum which helped sway our decision.

I am not doing reception favors (unless you consider silk fans for the ceremony a favor!). We are doing OOT bags.

We're giving a donation to My Vision Foundation in each person's name. We'll give everyone a keychain from the foundation with a note on it explaining this. We're doing OOT bags as well.

We're also doing donations. My current plan is to print small cards with a choice of 3 or 4 charity organizations that are special to us and our families. We'll have someone collect the cards and make the appropriate donations. If cards get lost, we'll just divide equally..Initially I was looking for some reputable organizations to donate to in Jamaica, but haven't spent a lot of time looking. We're planning on doing OOT bags w/ little bottles of rum, coffee, suntan lotion etc..

We haven't decided to do anything reg. favours as it'll just be ourselves & our son there, might change our minds nearer the time, if you have a big group going then maybe I would but if its small, I personally wouldn't bother.

We had planned on doing OOT/Welcome bags and then realized how expensive it was getting all that stuff plus favors. Then I found this site Party Flops and fell in love with the personalized flip flops. So instead of doing a total OOT bag and then favours we decided to give the very basic (sunscreen, antibacterial lotion, scented tea lights) oot bags with the flip flops in them too and then not do favors at the reception. I think they'll enjoy the gift more if they get them at the beginning of their trip.

 

For our AHR we are making a donation in our guests' names.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
