    TLS, we are going to name you "Mom" of this group...as your advice is always so sensible.

     

    And I know, I was disappointed about those bags too...I was about to race down to the mall with my hair on fire to get the $1 bags...but if all they are are a pretty zip-locs I thought maybe not.  BUT if that bride got the $10 bags for $1 that was a steal!  They're really cute...

    Annie - I wouldn't worry too much about your drugstore order I am sure everything will be fine

     

    Emergen-C   Rather that give you my general long winded explanation lol I will give you this link - but it is basically link a vitamin drink with lots of vitamin C (post hangover cure)

    http://www.emergenc.com/

     

    Can you share where you got your pashminas from?  I have been trying to find reasonably priced ones that aare good quality with no luck!

     

    And lastly - my only concern for you about shipping to the hotel is that they likely would "not be held responsible" if anything was LOST, STOLEN or BROKEN and that would just be so upsetting to me! All it takes is one young "punk" who works there to see the boxes sitting around for a "wedding" and walk out with one.... it just makes me nervous!!! Anyways as always just my  2cents!

HAHAHAHA.. My visa and bank account are also bleeding... and i just Dont look at the receipts.. it is sooo less scary that way!!! hahahah.. infact.. i can tell you.. i purposely LOSE the receipts.. in the garbage... in my purse.. in the recycle bin.. yadda yadda.. allll good!!!!

      *sigh* only 6 more months of this madness before my big day...

       

      i am just hoping i can get some control over myself...  i am like a fat kid on a smartie!!! you just cant keep me away from the dollerama... and any other place that would give me some cool OOT bag ideas..

        HEEEYYYYY...guess what?!?  We can get a free sample of emergen-c sent to us in Canada!  What does that say about me that I'm always trying to scope out the coupons and freebies?  Helps me feel a little less guilty for the extra spending...

          Nice find!!! :)

           

          I love emergen-c!!!! it works like a gem when you are feeling sick with a head cold or what not... My mom has been using it for years and everytime my FI or I gets sick she brings us a few packs hahah... it is great stuff!!! I was lucky.. my mom loves it so much she actually bought a couple boxes of it to put in my OOT bags heheheh

                    @amjohnson,

                    We are Date Twins! I just went to check our count down 153 days left to go!

I am a teacher so I have been trying to get as much done this summer as I am going back to work soon and taking a night class.

                     

                    Jennifer, did you put your booklet together in word? Would you mind sharing it with me? Running out of time to focus on things like that as all my energy and creativity will have to go into my own class prep.:( Wedding planning is more fun.

                     

                    In regards to how we are handing out our Oot bags, we get in late on Jan 1. and some of our guests will already be there. So I have already asked at the resort if we can reserve a large table for breakfast and we'll do a welcome breakfast, let people know ahead of time.

                     

                    So the swim bags, were found at La Vie en rose right? for a 1$ Not at their Aqua store?

                      Hi girls!
                      I went to la vie en rose, they aren't clearing out the $10 ones, they sell the $1 for $1 all the time :) they are blue and have a drawstring. They are cute, and they're $1 so not bad! :) I picked up a few for the BM's, may go back for more.

                       

                      I'm going to be delivering the OOT bags at the welcome party the first/second night we are all there, it will depend on what time we arrive, if we all arrive early, it will be that day, if not, it will be the next day! I'm basically going to have everyone meet at the lobby bar or something and hand them out there. I'll assemble them when I arrive, will need to recruit some help :)

                       

                      Where do you get the flip flop manicure sets?

                       

                      I'm worried about carrying all of this as well! lol!

                      I keep stashing all of this stuff into closets but one of these days i'm going to have to figure out just how much I have and how much space it's going to take up!
