Nothing close to $300 but if you had a lot of stuff I could imagine them getting picky! Spreading it out amongst family members is a great option if available, just make sure you give them receipts in case they are asked :o)

    Thanks for the tip!

      I JUST finished my OOT bags ladies and wanted to thank everyone for the thoughts and ideas!  Here are some photos of the end product!  The bags vary slightly depending on who is receiving them.  The wedding party and parents have Bubba mugs in theirs.  I ended up doing one per couple or single and am very pleased with how they turned out....and that they are done!

       

       

      Welcome letter and room list card

       

       

      AppleMark

      Patois phrases handout

       

       

      Hangover snacks, lip chap and waterproof camera case

       

       

      Wedding week survival kits, side one:  eye drops, moisturizer, condoms, Emergen-C, Imodium, sun screen, Gatoraide, Pepto tablets

       

       

      Wedding week survival kits, side two:  Body wash, Tums, energy shot, floss

       

       

      More snacks, Kleenex, "Queasy Pops", Advil, gum, Aloe gel

       

       

      Room key/tip holders with wrist bands (sorry about the glare)

       

       

       

      AppleMark

      The outside of the bags! :)

            Thanks!  I ended up buying the Gatoraide packages on a girls shopping weekend to the states.  Prices varied depending on how close we were to the boarder.  I ended up snagging them for $1.88 for a package of 8.

              Thanks!  I got the bags from Dollarama.  They were $2.00 each.

                Darn! I looked in the states multiple times since we live close to the border, but could never find them. Maybe we didn't go South enough.

                 

                great Job on the bags! bet you are getting excited to leave soon!!!!

                    I'm not sure, but I've ordered from vistaprint.com in the past when they don't have the same deals on .ca. It's gotten me plenty of free offers, and I didn't find the shipping to be any more expensive :)


                    Can't wait to marry my best friend on April 11, 2013!

                    49 Guests booked, and counting...

                    I agree... I always order from the US site because its the site with the free offers (Canada site never has free offers)and the shipping is the same!
