              I am thinking about making Luggage tags. You can get the self-Laminating tags, 5 for $2.88.

               

               

               

               

              You can get the ones that need thermal laminating 20 for $2. A laminating machine is $30. 

               

               

               

               

              You can get coil key holders 6 for $3.44. I was thinking about using these as the handle to make tip/ room key holders. I would order the zipper badge holder bags from ebay.

               

               

               

               

              You can get regular badge holders (for luggage tags) 12 for $1.98. THey come in verticle or horizontal. 

               

               

               

              You can get 48 printable, clean edge, fold-able business cards for $10. If I had a smaller wedding group then I would definitely use this for place settings at the tables. 

               

               

               

              You can get sticker paper, 15 pages for $11. You can use this to print out our own custom monograms and stick them on things (but it is NOT waterproof, it is just like a mailing label quality). 

               

              I am going to bead the initials of our guests around their mug handles. I bought beads on ebay but they sell them at walmart, 300 random alphabet beads for $7. Larger size beads has I think 180 beads for $7. 

               

               

               

               

              They have little sandal key chains in the kids party section. I think they are cute and will add them to the wedding party gifts (since they are cheap enough). 6 for $1. 

               

               

               

               

               

              They sell landyards, 2 for $2.88.

               

              They also have little travel bags (looks like the passport holderrs that go around your neck, at 90 cents each. 

               

               

              did you find the badge holders and landyards in the stationary section? I couldn't find any when I went to Walmart

                Not sure where you live Andrea28, but there is a place just south of Manitoba called Pembina Parcel Service. Basically you ship all your US good there and you don't have to pay CRAZY shipping prices. From Winnipeg (Where I live) it is about an hour drive and since it is on the way when we go shopping in the US. Here is the website http://pembinaparcel.com/. It is only $5 for small packages.  I haven't used this service in the past, but just ordered shoes and hopefully they will be arriving within the next week and delivered to Pembina.

                 

                Anywho, the reason I quoted you both is because minimus.biz has free shipping whithin the US on orders over $20. So you pretty much just pay for the product!

                  Yea they were in the stationary area. The same aisle as business cards and the laminating equipment. Also had tacks for bulletin boards, scissors... Good luck!

                    hey thanks!!! Ya i was planning on maybe setting up a shipping address in neche... its closer then pembina i think. I found some aloe on amazon thats the same size as the ones i bought at dollarama but they only ship to the us so i think thats my only option.

                      My Factory 21 mugs arrived today! They are really great! After duties and delivery to Edmonton, they came to $264 for 100 mugs ($2.64 each). 

                       

                      They are exactly what I was looking for, but I was looking for something light, that would keep drinks cool, that the guests could use at the resort. I wasn't really looking for something that they would use for coffee afterwards, and the hippy in me says that putting hot drinks in plastic is wrong haha, so the guests likely won't use them for anything besides destination vacations. But for a bride on a budget with 100 guests, these are perfect! More than perfect!
