That is completely up to you my dear. I have heard of brides spending only $15.00 per bag to over $50.00 per bag.
I myself have spent approx $30.00 per bag but that is bc Im only doing 20 bags. It doesnt look like a lot but when you start adding everything up - well it gets out of hand.

My bags have: The bag, sunscreen, hand sanitizer, body butter, bandaids, first aid kit, chapstick, advil, breath strips, pepto bismal, deck of cards, welcome book, pens, notepads, kleenex, key card holder and lanyard, 2 travel mugs, postcards, pashminas, tag body spray, star fish wine stopper, and not to forget all the beach kit bags I made up that hold all the little items, and the tags for the OOT bags, pashminas, stickers for my mugs. So it really does add up quickly.

In hindsight, I should have set a limit before I started, but I am happy with what is in my bags and how they turned out.

I hope that helps
Jenn

What's amazing is that Jenn's wedding is in 2012! I am nowhere near close to finishing my OOT bags. Actually, all I've gotten so far is the bag. LOL and actually a friend just picked those up today for me from Superstore! I don't even know what they look like, this could be a disaster. I have ordered my mugs finally but don't even have those yet! EEK.

Party Packagers also has the paper lanters, round and longer rectangular shaped ones.
They also have ones with flowers and such on them.
They have some with lights and without.
I picked up a bunch but not sure where I'm going to put them either yet!

Thanks CND Redhead. I had never even heard of them and it turns out there is one not far from where I live. I'll have to check it out as I'd like to find some bigger ones.

Jenny- I havent even seen my bags LOL My friend found them while on vaca in BC so I dont have a clue what they're like. She's home tmro tho! ANNNNNND got an email from discountmugs yesterday and the mugs we chose are out of stock until september. That's cutting it a little to close for comfort. I'll have to pick another one I guess. Oh also, my photog from Calgary cancelled on us today! CRAPPY week I thought dw weren't supposed to be stressfulhuh.gif

 

I'm going to try to make it to the get together on thurs but I'm not sure. I'm on call with work that evening so if I dont get called out it might be possible. I'm not big on driving in the city either so we'll see if I"m feeling brave that night! HA I really do want to meet you all though. Maybe I can convince you all to come out to Cochrane for ice cream this summer..... :)

Oh my gosh - not a good week for you for sure. Im sure the bags will be great so dont stress about that at all. Discount mugs - hmph! That totally sucks - well do they have anything else you like that they can have ready for you in time?? And as for the photographer. what the heck is that all about? Did they double book you or something? Have you contacted any of the photographers in Mexico - Claudia rodriguez had a pretty good package when we were looking into it. Maybe that is an option for youhuh.gif

As for Thursday, I would offer to come and get you, however I am coming from Didsbury. We can always meet somewhere on the outskirts and I can drive you in if you are nervous about driving in Calgary. I have lived here for 13 years so I know my way around really well. I would be more then happy to do that if you like? Let me know! Hope you can come to....

    • 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.
