    haha Jenny I posted a reply to you on the wrong thread! whoops! Basically said, I'm on call thursday evening so if I'm around I'll manage my own way in. REALLY REALLY appreciate the offer though! Next time, we'll do that!

    Also, I did originally look into Claudia Rodriguez. That was my first choice because a friend of mine used one of her photogs and LOVED the pics. I had forgotten that I had looked into her so I dug out the archives and found her price list. Pretty good if you only need 3 hours but I'd like longer and it's not in the budget... unless I tweak my budget HAHA For now I think I will see what the resort photographer looks like and go from there.

      I just ordered 25 aloe vera and 25 lip balms from Avon and it came to like $75. The aloe is really big and the lip balms are nice. Just a heads up if any of you are looking for them

        Hey Ladies,

        I'm just curious if anyone has found great beach totes for cheap? I was at dollarama yesterday and found some that were ok, but I see the bags the girls are getting at target (straw and super cute) and just wondering if anyone has found something similar here. I'm in the gta, willing to go just about anywhere for a good deal and great bag.

            I ended up ordering mine from Oriental Trading Company as per a recommendation of another bride. They should come this week. I doubt they will be really great but honestly, I wasn't that concerned about the bag itself. If I didn't find anything, I was planning on throwing our logo sticker on a paperbag from Michaels and calling it a day. Still might do that if the OTC bags don't work out.

            Last year, I saw some great straw ones from Walmart for $2. It was September so they were discounted bigtime. I almost bought them all but then thought how crazy I looked since at that time, we didn't even decide on a DW. Shoulda bought them! Maybe they will have them again this year...

                There's a store in Toronto called Creative Bag that I bought bags from. They have all kinds of bags and will print logos on!

                Good luck!

                  Wow it's nice to see so many Canucks on here. Not sure if this has been answered as I've been on for over an hour and still have not gotten through the whole thread.

                  Someone was looking to buy Emergen C...I found this at Independent grocer in the health food isle. They were normally 19.99 for a box of 30 and it was on sale for $16.00, they also have the individual packages for .65 cents. These are a great heat aid as on almost every trip Ive been on someone has had heat stroke, or a hangover lol.

                  As for travel size motrin, advil, or tylenol, I could of easily ordered from minimus.biz, but decided to ask smaller corner stores in my area where they purchased from. So ask around at yours and they will let you know as they aren't a big independent store and don't like to pay full price either. I got my motrin on sale a 10 pack for $1.54 at National Grocers.

                  Costco was great for gum $5.94 for 12 packs of Excel gum, Got miss vickies chips, nature valley granola bars, blue diamond almonds, nutrigrain bars, motts fruit sensations, ritz individual snacks and so much more for 50 guest and paid under $100.

                  Went to Dollarama and got Hand Sanitizer and Sudoko for 1$

                  Im also an avon rep, so that helped and I got small pink luggage tags for the ladies which have a sewing kit inside, aloe vera gel, men's toiletry bags, chapsticks, waterproof mascara's ect for the guest bags and filled up my bridesmaid bags with travel size, body wash, lotion, perfume samples, anti frizz for hair, jewelry, the list just goes on, I even got these cute foldable recyclable bags in brown, white and aqua with flowers, and instead of beach bags we did grey toiletry bags for the boys, as its more manly (on sale in outlet avon...not sure if you can get that online. I really didn't spend all that much as you always look out for $1 section and campaigns are always good for a month back even if they have passed. I started collecting end of May. If your in the northern ontario vincinity just pm me and I can help you out in terms of what is still available and what are good deals.

                  We will be ordering our mugs from discountmugs, but are waiting on final head count Aug 27th.

                  We are also going to order these beach themed mini photo albums ($133 for 50) on ebay and they are so cute. We will use these as the favors at our beach party reception.

                  Happy shopping everyone! This part is soooo fun!

                    I left my OOT bags until the last minute and didn't want to risk ordering anything online in case it didn't arrive in time. My mom works at Shoppers Drug Mart and bought packs of gravol, benadryl, pepto, travel advil with her staff discount and I just divvy-ed up the gravol, benadry and pepto into equal parts (they come in the punch-out style and I just cut them up).

                    Just a tip for those last minute brides like me!

                    I also bought travel febreeze from Wal Mart - cheaper than anywhere else I've seen.
