I know my Resort has NO clocks anywhere, so you're advised to bring one if you want to know the time/set an alarm etc. So I thought they'd be really neat to give in my OOT Bags!
That is such a great idea! The last time we were in Mexico we forgot to bring a watch and there were no clocks anywhere! It was so annoying!

Also if you put THANKYOUCA in the coupon code area, I think you can get free shipping. Anyone can shop online with avon, you don't have to know/or be an avon rep. Happy OOT bag hunting!!!!
Awesome thanks for the info!

Hello fellow Canadians!!

 

I am from Port Moody (just outside of Vancouver) and my fiance is from Edmonton,

I am wondering if any other brides-to-be from Van/Edmonton have good suggestions for OOT shopping. There are so many dollar type stores to choose from!

 

I am getting married in less than 8 weeks and need to get this stuff together asap!

 

Also, I am a little confused about labels/vista print etc. Do you buy plain stickers and have them printed? How about labeling your canvas bags? Is there something you can buy and iron on yourself? I am so confused.

 

Thank you so much for your help!

Thanks in advance!
I ordered my travel mugs from discountmugs.com. They were pricey (and in US$) but they look great!

Best of luck to you.

I bought my OOT bags from JYSK ( both guys and girls), most of my fillers are from Michaels, Dollarama and Pier 1. My BM's bags are from Sears (Land's End bag) and their extra fillers are from Bath and Body works. The rest is from ETSY and our friend's Vegas trip. When in Edmonton just hit West Ed Mall and you'll find lots of stuff. Happy hunting!smile67.gif

I saw round paper laterns at Shopper's for 1.99, I think that is pretty resonable and they come in all different colors, orange, blue, pink, green. These would be a great way to decorate at the reception. I am going to go back tonight and get them actually!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
