Ladies, I went to winners today to get some stuff for the house and here's what I found for the OOT bags isntead :). I apologize for the quality of the pictures, I used my phone.

 

Note pads with pencils inside.It was priced at 3.99 each and they have all the letters of the alphabet. Some of the brides mentioned that their resorts didn't have pens or note pads in the rooms. IMG_0199.JPG

 

Luggage tags for 4.99. They are a bit expensive but sooo cute. So, if anybody is interested here it is:

They also had very cute card holders in various colours. I might get them for the room keys instead of ordering them from oriental trading. They were 2.99 each and had different colours (red, green, yellow, black ...). I took a picture of the green one and the picture of the inside of the card is for the black card holder.

Finally, they had a pack of 6 body lotions for 4.99. I absolutely loved them and bought a few packs for my OOTs. Here is the pic:

I got my Kate Spade flip flop manicure sets from Hautelook during one of their events for like $2.50 a set I think.. comes in a case of 12, so I'll have enough for all my BM's and mom's and a couple of lucky random lady guests will get the remainders.. lol

flip flop thank u.jpg

I also got to the Dollarama the other day to check out those first aid kits you guys have been talking about that are $1.25, and I was originally against the little first aid kits because I was thinking they were going to take up too much space and stuff, but I LOVE the size of them! They're like a little travel size version, about a 2.5"x2.5"in square. The downfall was they only had 5 at the location I checked out, the cashier said they are a really big seller so they do get them in regularly, but they sell quickly too. So I'll have to hunt at other Dollarama's for more. I think I'm nearing the end of my OOT bag journey, which will be a big relief to my wallet, lol. Maybe now I can start paying for the wedding?? embarrest.gif

I think my problem is that they don't quite meet, the next ones I do (for my wedding) will overlap slightly because I think the sticked on sticker will hold better.  Thanks for the Zots tip, I think I will be going to check them out!!

Hope that helps! :)



 


I used 8.5 x 11 full page labels and just made my own template and cut them from the full page. I am too obsessive that something will go wrong with vista print and I find the cost of shipping generally is the same or only slightly less than the cost of printing here.  I wish I could figure out to make Vistaprint work for me but if I got the order and it was wrong I would just be doing it over and over!  I have heard the free address labels from Vista Print work really well on the Aquafina lip chaps from Dollarama you just need 2 for each lip balm, just a thought!

Did you notice if they had any bubble baths or shower gels?  Our resort has jacuzzis in every room and outdoor jacuzzis with some rooms as well so I would like to include bubbles for the couples!!!

These are so awesome, I saw a knock off version at Dollar Tree a few days ago and thought it was so cute, didn't realize it was a Kate Spade knock off!!!

So I am back from my trip to the US and man do we have the short end of the stick, I FINISHED my OOT bags, there are a few things a need a couple more of but all the major items are done and I am so excited.  That being said I felt very sad for all my fellow Canadian brides and wanted to post every two seconds to ask if anyone needed anything!!!!   If anyone is able to make a trip I would highly recommend it, very worth while and though a big hit on our bank account well worth it!! So excited to be DONE!!!!

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
