We are doing OOT bags. I am still determing the contents, but I am getting some great ideas from the forum. I want to wait until I have a better idea of how many guests are coming to determine how much I want to spend per bag before finalizing the contents.

 

For favors at RMB and for the AHR, we plan to do donations to the Alzheimer's Association in memory of our grandmothers

How do you ladies find all the time to make all the favors? and you are all obviously really talented to do all the DIY things....my daughter just isn't very creative & she gets that from me. Thats why I LOVE to SEE all the ideas everyone is sharing. Maybe I can find a friend who can help, cuz we NEED HELP desperately !! ( HA HA )

I think they'll enjoy the gift more if they get them at the beginning of their trip.
I love the idea of doing flip flops, but how are you planning on getting the sizes for all of your guests?

I was in Montego Bay a couple weeks ago for my site visit and we found a store called Bedazzled in MoBay that sells small packages of Blue Mountain coffee and Appleton Rum. They were really friendly, and likely to make you a good deal if you buy a large quantitiy, just an fyi

Hi Amee!! I saw your earlier post about considering donations to a Jamaican charity/foundation... In case you were still toying with the idea I saw that the Rockhouse Hotel has a foundation that is dedicated to improving children's development by building and renovating schools, libraries, etc. Here is the link if you want additional info:

I'm currently working with the partyflops website. I think the prices are pretty reasonable, you do need a minimum order of 45 I believe. If I can get them shipped directly to Negril I'll probably go for it. approx 6 bucks a piece. I've also bought drawstring bags I plan to put them in and some other things. I'll let you know about the product if we decide to go that route.

We're just doing palm fans during the ceremony and tying a little ribbon with our names and date on it. I figure it will be inexpensive and useful during the ceremony. I always lose wedding favors anyway!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
