400

 

 

You can get the ones that need thermal laminating 20 for $2. A laminating machine is $30. 

 

 

400

 

 

You can get coil key holders 6 for $3.44. I was thinking about using these as the handle to make tip/ room key holders. I would order the zipper badge holder bags from ebay.

 

 

400

 

 

You can get regular badge holders (for luggage tags) 12 for $1.98. THey come in verticle or horizontal. 

 

400

 

 

You can get 48 printable, clean edge, fold-able business cards for $10. If I had a smaller wedding group then I would definitely use this for place settings at the tables. 

 

 

400

 

You can get sticker paper, 15 pages for $11. You can use this to print out our own custom monograms and stick them on things (but it is NOT waterproof, it is just like a mailing label quality). 

 

I am going to bead the initials of our guests around their mug handles. I bought beads on ebay but they sell them at walmart, 300 random alphabet beads for $7. Larger size beads has I think 180 beads for $7. 

 

 

400

 

 

They have little sandal key chains in the kids party section. I think they are cute and will add them to the wedding party gifts (since they are cheap enough). 6 for $1. 

 

 

400

 

 

 

They sell landyards, 2 for $2.88.

 

They also have little travel bags (looks like the passport holderrs that go around your neck, at 90 cents each. 

 

 

400

did you find the badge holders and landyards in the stationary section? I couldn't find any when I went to Walmart

Not sure where you live Andrea28, but there is a place just south of Manitoba called Pembina Parcel Service. Basically you ship all your US good there and you don't have to pay CRAZY shipping prices. From Winnipeg (Where I live) it is about an hour drive and since it is on the way when we go shopping in the US. Here is the website http://pembinaparcel.com/. It is only $5 for small packages.  I haven't used this service in the past, but just ordered shoes and hopefully they will be arriving within the next week and delivered to Pembina.

 

Anywho, the reason I quoted you both is because minimus.biz has free shipping whithin the US on orders over $20. So you pretty much just pay for the product!cheer2.gif

My Factory 21 mugs arrived today! They are really great! After duties and delivery to Edmonton, they came to $264 for 100 mugs ($2.64 each). 

 

They are exactly what I was looking for, but I was looking for something light, that would keep drinks cool, that the guests could use at the resort. I wasn't really looking for something that they would use for coffee afterwards, and the hippy in me says that putting hot drinks in plastic is wrong haha, so the guests likely won't use them for anything besides destination vacations. But for a bride on a budget with 100 guests, these are perfect! More than perfect!

    • 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. 
    • 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.
