    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?

          We are also doing the personalized m&m's at the reception because it is fun and inexpensive. THey will jsut be in little plastic bags with a starfish glued to the raffia. Very simple but fun.

              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!

                      We plan on ordering starfish wine bottle stoppers for the reception.
