So far in ours we have:

- A lofa (4 pack/ $1.25 from Dollar Giant in Calgary)

- Cloths pins (Huge pack for $1.25 from Dollar Giant)

- Tissue (8 pack/$1.25 from Dollar Giant)

- Safety Pins (Multi pack  for $1.25 from Dollar Giant)

- Hand Sani (3 pack/$1.25 from Dollar Giant)

- Mug with insertable section to personalize ($1.25 from Dollar Giant)

- Waterproof watch (Dollar store in England)

Since I first began I changed the guys colors from Yellow to Blue and removed the line under their names. The ladies cups are pink.

We put a picture of each guest on one side and then a photo of us from our engagement shoot. I'll post a better picture soon.

 

Items that we are still looking for good prices on:

- Travel size Aloe or if that fails sunscreen

- SPF Lipbalm

- Pepto or TUms

- Possibly Tylenol or Advil

- Notepads & Pens

- Likely other stuff will be added closer!

 

I just used Word to make the template. The lines are to guide me when cutting them out.

 

 

 

I definitely want to find some of those waterproof watches but it looks like you found those in England. Have you tried them out to see if they work, how long they last and if they are indeed waterproof?

I have not tried them. I figured that they were cheap so if they don't totally work I am not going to be that disappointed. I will try them tonight and see how it goes though.

I ordered some of these from DH gate for super cheap. I'll let you know how they turn out when thy come in! It's a great idea for those bags. When we were at a resort last December, every 5 minutes someone would ask my FI for the time when we were hanging out at the pool bar.

Thanks! It looks like you can get them for a pretty good price from there! I want to order them now but our wedding is not until Nov so I'm worried the battery will run out by then (since they're cheap and maybe you can't turn them off?).

I beleive ours came with little pull things that turn them on but we decided to try them all out and bought batteries from the dollar store to replace the ones that ran out. We'lll also bring the batteries and screwdriver set with us to fix any that run out when we are there. The ones we got you cannot turn off but not sure about any of the other types out there.

Great to know. As long as you can decide when to turn them on (by pulling the little tab), then I'm happy. Now if I only knew how many people were actually coming, lol.

See that's what I am worried about so I waited long enough to order them lol. I emailed the seller asking if they have those little pull tabs but picking up extra batteries for ones that run out is a great idea.

Those little watches are a GREAT idea for the OOT bags.  If I could go back in time that is the one thing I would have added!

 

Other BIG "hits" for my group were:

 

-sudoku/wordfind books (for the older crowd)

-snacks (little bags of cheesies/chips/crackers)...SlimJims were a big hit as well

-tip and key card holders (zip-loc/waterproof on a coil wrist band)....everyone used theirs

-waterproof camera bags

-TUMS

-Pepto tabs

-Aloe gel

    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
