CANADIAN OOT BAG info...where to shop!

Recommended Posts

haha Jenny I posted a reply to you on the wrong thread! whoops! Basically said, I'm on call thursday evening so if I'm around I'll manage my own way in. REALLY REALLY appreciate the offer though! Next time, we'll do that!

 

Also, I did originally look into Claudia Rodriguez. That was my first choice because a friend of mine used one of her photogs and LOVED the pics. I had forgotten that I had looked into her so I dug out the archives and found her price list. Pretty good if you only need 3 hours but I'd like longer and it's not in the budget... unless I tweak my budget HAHA For now I think I will see what the resort photographer looks like and go from there.

I just ordered 25 aloe vera and 25 lip balms from Avon and it came to like $75. The aloe is really big and the lip balms are nice. Just a heads up if any of you are looking for them

Hey Ladies,

 

I'm just curious if anyone has found great beach totes for cheap? I was at dollarama yesterday and found some that were ok, but I see the bags the girls are getting at target (straw and super cute) and just wondering if anyone has found something similar here. I'm in the gta, willing to go just about anywhere for a good deal and great bag.

I ended up ordering mine from Oriental Trading Company as per a recommendation of another bride. They should come this week. I doubt they will be really great but honestly, I wasn't that concerned about the bag itself. If I didn't find anything, I was planning on throwing our logo sticker on a paperbag from Michaels and calling it a day. Still might do that if the OTC bags don't work out.

 

Last year, I saw some great straw ones from Walmart for $2. It was September so they were discounted bigtime. I almost bought them all but then thought how crazy I looked since at that time, we didn't even decide on a DW. Shoulda bought them! Maybe they will have them again this year...

There's a store in Toronto called Creative Bag that I bought bags from. They have all kinds of bags and will print logos on!

Wow it's nice to see so many Canucks on here. Not sure if this has been answered as I've been on for over an hour and still have not gotten through the whole thread.

 

Someone was looking to buy Emergen C...I found this at Independent grocer in the health food isle. They were normally 19.99 for a box of 30 and it was on sale for $16.00, they also have the individual packages for .65 cents. These are a great heat aid as on almost every trip Ive been on someone has had heat stroke, or a hangover lol.

 

As for travel size motrin, advil, or tylenol, I could of easily ordered from minimus.biz, but decided to ask smaller corner stores in my area where they purchased from. So ask around at yours and they will let you know as they aren't a big independent store and don't like to pay full price either. I got my motrin on sale a 10 pack for $1.54 at National Grocers.

 

Costco was great for gum $5.94 for 12 packs of Excel gum, Got miss vickies chips, nature valley granola bars, blue diamond almonds, nutrigrain bars, motts fruit sensations, ritz individual snacks and so much more for 50 guest and paid under $100.

 

Went to Dollarama and got Hand Sanitizer and Sudoko for 1$

 

Im also an avon rep, so that helped and I got small pink luggage tags for the ladies which have a sewing kit inside, aloe vera gel, men's toiletry bags, chapsticks, waterproof mascara's ect for the guest bags and filled up my bridesmaid bags with travel size, body wash, lotion, perfume samples, anti frizz for hair, jewelry, the list just goes on, I even got these cute foldable recyclable bags in brown, white and aqua with flowers, and instead of beach bags we did grey toiletry bags for the boys, as its more manly (on sale in outlet avon...not sure if you can get that online. I really didn't spend all that much as you always look out for $1 section and campaigns are always good for a month back even if they have passed. I started collecting end of May. If your in the northern ontario vincinity just pm me and I can help you out in terms of what is still available and what are good deals.

 

We will be ordering our mugs from discountmugs, but are waiting on final head count Aug 27th.

 

We are also going to order these beach themed mini photo albums ($133 for 50) on ebay and they are so cute. We will use these as the favors at our beach party reception.

 

Happy shopping everyone! This part is soooo fun!

I left my OOT bags until the last minute and didn't want to risk ordering anything online in case it didn't arrive in time. My mom works at Shoppers Drug Mart and bought packs of gravol, benadryl, pepto, travel advil with her staff discount and I just divvy-ed up the gravol, benadry and pepto into equal parts (they come in the punch-out style and I just cut them up).

 

Just a tip for those last minute brides like me!

 

I also bought travel febreeze from Wal Mart - cheaper than anywhere else I've seen.

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
