Ta dah, there is one 10 mins from my house! So I will have to go today and see what it is like, I have never been to a Dollar Tree. I am crossing my fingers that I don't find anything I haven't already bought. I will let the Edmonton brides know how it is...It is supposed to be in St.Albert, across from the Superstore.

But it's true!! The deals are crazy. I got my 25 brochures for FREE! Just had to pay $10 shipping. And they arrived in my mialbox exactly a week from the day I placed the order. They came folded and I was nervous about the quality but they are GREAT!  :)

          Okay Ladies,

          So I am officially done my Oot bags and I have started to hand them out! We are giving all but two of them before we leave so we won't have much to take with us.


          Here is what they look like. We also did pre travel passports, a team effort between my fiance and I. I hope our guests appreciate them.:)

          The photo below is one of my BM's bags. I gave them each two pashminas, a red one to go with their dresses and a white/cream one. The socks have little grips on them as the resort rooms are supposed to get cold at night and slippery.

              Thanks belle dame, parles-tu le francais? lol


              I am willing to share my template, I used the free passport template from aylee's bits but used some info I got from other brides' pre travel brochures. We have a copy too which is nice as my FI put lots of useful info in it, even a couple maps, list of the resort restaurants, and local attractions.

                  They look great! The survival/snack bags look so professional, did you do them on vistaprint?

                  So what was the grand total cost?

                    Thanks ladies,

                    As for the cost of everything not sure, need to add it up. I got the Wedding survival kit and snack pack post cards from Vista Print and I have quite a few left over. I see a couple brides are in the Edmonton area. I haven't had time to post them for sale put would like them to go to good use and not into the recycle bin!

                      I have created a DIY passport pre travel brochure thread so I could share my documents and photos. I need to update the template I have on there as it isn't the final copy, sorry. I was working on a few different computers! I hope some future brides can make use of it.
