    I like the idea of the welcome cocktail thing.... I will need a luggage cart to bring it all down lol  Are you sending a pre travel book/brochure?!

      I am not sending a pre travel brochure... but i will be handing out a welcome book/Activity book at the airport as people come, as 95% of the people are traveling with us  ( my book has a part one and part two) first half is info and details etc.. about the upcoming week.. and the 2nd part is puzzles, games and fun stuff for the plane to keep people occupied if they so choose.

        That's a GREAT idea!!!!! 1/2 our group is travelling the day before unfortunately but it could work for the group that is coming with us!!!!!  My in laws will be on the flight the day before with the rest of the group so I bet I could give them the ones for those people and get her to hand them out!  Don't wanna stress out my MIL but thats likely impossible LOL

          Hahahah That's a great Idea!! I am getting my Mom and possibly my sister ( MOH) to help me distribute them.. I will have sticky notes on the cover with everyone's name.. so i can keep track of who i gave them to and who i haven't.. So you could do that with your MIL to make it easier for her... she just has to give the book to the person whos name is stuck to the front of it! :) easy peasy lemon squeezy!! :)

           

          that way they have 5 hours on the flight ( in our case anyway) to look through and read the book... and play games.. and it doesnt cut out of the beach or drinkin time! :)

            Ohhhhh...I'm all about the blanket/wrap on the plane...especially when it's -30 at home and you're running into the airport in capri pants and sandals!  What great restraint you showed : )

              I love the idea Jenn, will likely be stealing that!!!!!

               

               

              I remember someone asking about the chapstick labels, pretty sure it was this thread.  Dramatic Annie maybe?! Looking for shiny labels.  I didn't think you could get them but was just reading someones planning thread I bookmarked and she used full sheet glossy sticker paper.  You need an ink jet to print it I think but I thought I would share anyways.  Here's a link to a product I googled really quick but she said she got hers at office depot!  I would redo mine if they weren't already DONE... I just have to accept some things!

                Hmmm...never heard of Liquidation world, but it does sound promising! But, I went to Giant Tiger the other day, and it was very disappointing, not as great as I remembered :(

                Check out the beauty.com side too..there are good cosmetics. Unfortunately no great Oot bag finds but some nice stuff for a bride maybe!

                 

                I am going to check out Liquidation world here in Edmonton today...I think other cities in Canada have these. They may have great finds. I am also going to check Giant Tiger...good discount store and I will let you know if I find anything!

                    Oh don't worry you have GOT THIS!!!!!  For the kids bags, WATER GUNS!!!!!! from the dollar store!!!!! They are super cheap and will be used SOOOOO much!!!!! I would do these for the girl too so she doesn't feel left out!!!! Other option would be inespensive floats, you can pick them up ay walmart for $5 of $6!!!! Mom and Dad can blow them up but gives them something to play with in the pool!!!!! Activity books are a great idea, what about an underwater disposable camera, it may not last long but it would be fun for them in the pool or by the pool as they can't wreck it AND itll be fun for them to get developed when they get home!!! Card games like uno, go fish, old maid the old classics lol these can often be found at the dollar store too for inexpensive, they will be great on the plane, by the pool and in the rooms!  Check the toy section at the dollar store and you can be a HERO for a few bucks each child!!!!

                     

                    Question about the bikini bags, at the first la vie en rose they were $10? Were they not on sale there.... I am going to Toronto to get these Saturday but I want to be sure they are $1!!!! I just love that!!! LOL

                     

                    Breathe.... Breathe again and SIGH!!!! You are getting married in FOUR WEEKS!!! Get excited!!! It will be great!!!

                      I know...I feel the same way but I have 183 days to go.  In a millisecond, my brain is being bounced from shoes to cakes to what to make for supper to luggage tags to imodium to what colour tissue to put in my OOTs to clever things to write on my MIL's mug to I've got to get to the gym to which Dollarama I hit up next to I need to check out those bags at La Vie en Rose to remember to call the insurance adjuster about the entire bottle of nailpolish that spilled all over our ivory carpet...AGHHHHHH!  No wonder I'm forgetting my belongings in truck stop washrooms...
