I am getting married in less than 8 weeks and need to get this stuff together asap!
Also, I am a little confused about labels/vista print etc. Do you buy plain stickers and have them printed? How about labeling your canvas bags? Is there something you can buy and iron on yourself? I am so confused.
Thank you so much for your help!
from Liquidation World (15535 115A Avenue):
Travel Aloe Vera's (under a buck)
Decks of cards with plastic case (about 50 cents)
Gorgeous, giant striped beach bags for my bridal party (around $5 each) I'm going to get their names embroidered on them.
Leather keycard/tip money holder ($1) I cleared out the Westmount location, so you may want to go elsewhere.
Mesh drawstring OOT bags in bright blue/purple/green/pink ($1)
Small glitter gel pens (12 for $ which I'll slip in the leather keycard holders with a small post it pad for leaving notes on peoples doors for meeting up purposes
Iron Transfer Paper (can't remember for sure, but I think it was around $15 for 5 sheets) I did a trail and this works quite well, just make sure you keep the iron on it for more than the reccommended time, otherwise it tends to peel off.
I'm also hoping to get travel mugs. Will likely just get cheapies from somewhere and add stickers or keep some sharpies on hand for people to decorate their own. I can't justify the price of doing a custom one. I've asked around and it seems that insulated and with a lid are priority to people, and that can get rather costly if ordering them.
