(Not personalized, just that cute poem "from beach chair to barstool...", background is palm trees/beach   100 postcards- used as welcome letter for OOT bags- will have extras, but we wanted to personalize with our names, so the rest will be wasted unfortunately    10 flat invitations - used as wedding day itinerary for bridesmaids   1 each: notebook, T-shirt, tote bag- personalized them all for my daughter, our flower girl    1 personalized rubber stamp   1 pad personalized sticky notes   All I paid is $10.56 for shipping (Canada).

If we need more, we'll be using up the extra space in my 8 year old neice's luggage....or just giving more stuff to other people (our best man and maid of honour are only coming for 4 days, so they won't have as much to bring down).

Hi All!

 

Just thought I would share some of my finds as well!

 

700

 

I found these sets of body cream and body wash - 6 in a box, on clearance at Walmart for like $2.00!! We ended up scratching off the names and the little kisses and putting our label on top of them - they turned out really nice! :)

 

700

I found these at The Shoe Company of all places!! They were on sale from the $15.99 - and when we bought the groomsmens sandals, we got bonus bucks that we could use on these. I think we ended up paying $4.99 for them - not bad for a pack of 7 - we ended up getting two packs of all different colours for all of the ladies.

 

I then found nail polish remover WIPES (individually wrapepd) at walmart in a box! Each lady will also get one wipe.

 

700

I found this at a local store that sells gifty things - it was a tumbler that had a decal on the inside of the cup. Unfortunately, our budget is limited - the cup was $15.99! It was just too cute NOT to share! :)

 

700

This blistex at dollarama has an SPF! Not all stores in my area have them, so you really have to look at all of the Dollarama's around you. 

 

700

Dollarama - canvas colour - kind of looks like a cake, if anyone is interested?

 

700

Walmart - these are smaller, like a travelling toiletry bag, but totally cute if you want to go that way with your OOT bags. :)

 

700

Avon - this was in the catalogue - might be cute?

 

700

These are the original totes we went with - found at Dollar Tree. It was literally the ONLY bag we could find. I was okay with them but didn't love the colours. We got a mixture of green blue, purple, pink and orange. I decided I wanted to try to exchange all of the different colours for just blue and green because of the designs I decided to go with for our OOT bag items....they were green and blue.

AND THEN....

 

700

We walked into a Dollar Tree and saw an Easter display with the same bags in easter colours....so I've since exchanged them all for these two colours which match PERFECTLY to my design and ribbon :)

700

This was our key holder design - we were having such a hard time finding lanyards - I ordered some from eBay and they got lost in the mail. :( So we tried searching and couldn't find anything. LUCKILY...my brilliant FI decided to ask his work if they had anything...it would have been printed with the company logo, but they ordered USBs which came with these straps...and they were just cutting them off!!!! What a waste! So, he brought them home, took the lanyards off and PRESTO! Free lanyards! WOOOO HOO! :)

 

That's all for now...good luck!

Finally found hand sanitizer in small containers for a reasonable price! The more I thought about the large ones, the more I wanted to look for the smaller size. The bags are filling up fast and I need to keep in mind that we're having to pack them with us!!

$1.25 for a 3 pack at Dollar Tree in St. Albert, AB

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
