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!
I just read through the last couple of pages here and laughed. I was all depressed at first because my credit card is like bleeding right now but I loaded up drugstore.com anyway everyone on here is like yaahh loving it and then you guys are all like noooooo beware of drugstore.com and i'm like eek, click the X button.. lmao!
If there's one thing I'm going to put my foot down on about is the frigging delivery of the bags I want it done by the cruise line, they said they would deliver each bag to the guests stateroom for $1 per bag, but that it may not be delivered until after the ship sets sail which is fine with me. I want my guests to go back to their room and be all like wow what's this? And discover the little treasure trove bag of goodies, especially the embroidered or engraved stuff I am putting in our Groomsmen/BM's bags. My other plan is to mail stuff to the hotel in Florida (I haven't talked this over with the hotel yet but in my dream world they will be very nice and hold a couple of boxes of my stuff for me for a couple of months) where we will be staying the night before getting on the cruise. Then when we get to Florida that day I will assemble a little team of people to help me put stuff together, but my FI and I will personally stuff the Groomsmen/BM bags cause I'll put lil gifts for them in there.
Stuff I am planning to mail: Bubba keg mini mugs - I only have these for a few of the guys, not for everyone. The cruise ship isn't all inclusive so we don't shop for mugs but on the stops you need a nice thermal drink holder. Also my avon aloe's are a great size but also kinda heavy. I am counting on those flat rate boxes the USPS has? I have seen them! My only wonder is will I be able to mail stuff from Maine to Florida without having a maine address? I do have a friend with family in maine if I need an address but could I put my Canadian return address ya think? I suppose I should be asking our yankee bride friends. Also my pashmina's take up a ton of space, will probably mail those.
I don't even TELL my FI most of the stuff I find on here that I immediately "HAVE TO HAVE" for my OOTS! I totally know what you guys mean when you say you need oot interventions! If he only knew he'd be banning me from this site. I do talk about you guys all the time and all the great ideas I get from here, I usually start off a sentence to FI about "The destination wedding brides online said..." and he's like - example - I had no plans for sewing kits til I saw Tori's, then scoured three Michaels' in two different provinces til I found them! FI is happy I am hunting down like, $2 advil and not like a $10 item which I need to buy like 30 of. It adds up though. I put all of my oot expenses in an excel sheet and so far, with NO bags yet.. lol.. it's scary. So far I have:
- a few of the advils
- the lil sewing kits for ladies bags
- flip flop manicure sets for the ladies' bags
- pashmina's from the NY wholesale person (love the quality and color of these - now I wish I had gotten two colors )
- bubba mugs for the guys
- a newsletter/'facebook' thing that I am in the process of making in publisher
- lil first aid kits from the dollar store
- temporary tattoos of a little cartoon drawing of ourselves and our wedding date we got done from a seller on etsy (so cute and my FI is big into tattoos I think ppl will have a lot of fun with them)
- Avon Aloe
- Spf lip balm
- Lanyards with zip card holder - also planning on getting wrist coils in case people have a preference when I do my oriental trading order which I haven't done yet..
- lil dollarstore hand sanitizers
There is a couple of more things I want to get like little sunblocks, tums or rolaids, and some gatorade packs, but not much more.. oh oops I almost forgot my TONS OF VISTAPRINT STUFF... like I literally will have a pen, notebook, note PAD, keychain and tshirt for each person. OMG. Now i'm feeling a little ridiculous
I do have a question about Emergen-C - what the heck is it? I have never heard of anyone using this?
