    Lol! Thanks!

    I thought about the sewing kits but didn't think they would get used so I'll have one, and maybe I'll put them in the BM & Parent bags but I really don't think everyone will use them. They are super cute though! I love the ones Tori got :)

    Are you in Toronto? We have a BBW outlet here so everything in there is super cheap!! it's awesome!

    I am having issues finding nice and cheap sewing kits, some at the dollar stores are too big! I am going to put them together myself with some cardstock like another DIY bride did.

    I went to three different Michael's Stores and had no luck finding the sewing kits there.

      Okay so here is the scoop on Drugstore.com order. I was going to place it, my order was 87.00 plus 5.40 duty and 28.00 shipping. My fiance was leery...said make sure it's a reliable site..so I checked for customer reviews and a lot came back negative..I would say 80% gave it 1 out of 5 stars. So given that it is hit and miss, I chose not to take the chance. Sorry, I was excited too..My fiance is gong to the states for a conference in Oct so will likely get him to get the shout to gos and a few other things.

       

      I did find two Canadian sites that provide health and grocery items with free shipping in Canada. I may order vitamins and supplements in bulk from them as prices are good.

I read the shipping thing and it said for U.S only.  did any of you ladies actually finish the order and get free shipping?

        I remember that too but I thought it had to do with including too many over the counter medications and people basically ODing themselves.  I am probably totally wrong.... I am sure my guests wont take all 6 of their peptos and 10 of their advils at once lol but who knows!!!!

         

        I will check out the link you gave thanks :)  I have given pepto, rolaids and advil peptos song does go "nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea" Sooo I hope its true and then I think the bases are covered!!!!

        I read somewhere in this thread a while ago that one of the brides asked the pharmacist about pepto and immodium or pepto and advil/tylenol, I can't remember what it was but I know for sure pepto was involved, anyways, something about the interaction between the two and she was encouraged NOT to include both. So that being said, I found this link to research the interactions:

            No, I am in Edmonton but yes we have BBW outlets, the West Edmonton Mall store has the same prices as the outlets...I have been avoiding going though as I often get carried away!

                  Hey Ladies,

                   

                  So I was also one that would go crazy on all the OOT bag stuff but that was up until one fine day when I figured that I should probably see how many bags I am going to need to get everything down to Mexico.  Well after packing everything up I was at 8 bags ranging in size from large suitcases to large duffle bags on wheels. Now that does taken into consideration things like cake topper, programs and the odd little thing but mostly it is my OOT stuffers. However once I had 8 bags I realized that is when I had to stop.  I still have to pack for myself and FI and my son so we are probably looking at another 3 bags with our clothes and that doesnt even take care of my dress or flowers.  So a word of wisdom, start packing now to see where your at, bc the exra bag charges are going to add up really fast!!!

                   

                  What I have so far for my OOT bags (for 36 people or 20 bags) :

                  Beach Bag

                  2 Travel mugs per bag

                  Pashmina

                  Beach kit ( sunscreen, sanitizer, body butter, bandaids, listerine strips, chap stick - all travel size)

                  Hangover kit (advil, pepto, immodium - travel sizr)

                  Lanyard with money/key holder

                  first aid kit

                  deck of cards

                  tissues

                  5 postcards with pen for each bag

                  36 starfish for place settings

                  tag body spray travel size

                  ipod dock - travel size - 4

                  room spray from Bath and body works

                  welcome book

                  wet bikini bag

                  Mexican translation form

                  tags for the bags

                  star fish wine stoppers...... there is probably more but I cant think of it off the top of my head. 

                   

                  So make sure you stop and check the bag issue before you go crazy bc it adds up really fast.  Its like they say with your wedding dress....when you found yours, don't go looking anymore.  So if you have enough stuff, stop looking otherwise there will always be something out there that you will want. Good Luck ;)

                    Hi Laurelyn,

                    I am not sure, it depends on your city. I know in Edmonton we have one bbw "outlet" in our outlet mall area but to be honest, the prices n deals are pretty comparable between regular stores and the outlet stores. I may pop by a mall store today and I will let you know how the prices are.
