Oh, you guys. I miss you guys. It's coming down to the wire for me, a little over three months to go. Everyone's stressing me out over their cost of their trip because final payments are due this month and they've had over a year knowing about this.. you don't know how many times I've heard "oh there's still lots of time to pay" while they blew their cash.. and now I feel BAD because it's our wedding...... eep. Oh well, I don't want to hijack the oot bag thread! This is my FAVORITE thread and now that like every spare bit of money we have is going to wedding things.. I hate coming on here and seeing all the great stuff and not being able to run out and buy it, lol.
So, I just wanted to share that I found a nice bag from 4imprint.ca - I have always wanted a "boat tote" style bag and was supposed to get a bunch from another bride on here that she bought at the dollar tree in the states, but since her wedding date has come and gone she hasn't logged on here or emailed me back in months.. so I gave up on her. I know 4imprint has a minimum order quantity of like 100 or so and I only need like 20 bags, but when I found the one I wanted, I asked them if I could get less then minimum quantity IF I didn't get them imprinted, just paid for the bags, and they said yes. Granted, the only 'blue' they have is a navy (where my color is turquoise) but it's a great price for that style and I figure I'll use turquoise ribbon and our tags are being made by Allurements by Rebecca so I'm sure they'll match fabulously. So I am buying 20 bags from them, which are a good size and zipper at the top like I wanted, I was actually able to get a free sample from them beforehand to see what it was like (and don't think it hasn't crossed my mind to see if I could round up 20 friends and family members to all order a free sample, lmao) and I really liked the bag. I figure I'm just going to put a tag on it anyway with some ribbon - BUT if my budget allows and if I come up with something cool, I can iron something on, or take it to a local embroidering place to see if they can silkscreen it on to my bag's 'pocket'. I was going to go all DIY but after my first DIY project where I ended up BUTCHERING our fabulous passport invitations.. lol.. I decided maybe that's not my thing.
So I mean, it doesn't hurt to ask! And a lot of the time they only ask for a minimum quantity of something because of the imprinting or whatever, I mean, the worst they can do is say no
