    I got terry cloth on sale at Fabricland for $4 a meter to make beach pillows.  Normally it was $12, but I went every couple weeks and my way home and sure enough it went on sale.  Might be an option instead of towels?

    Another thing I'm going to do (but just for me, my FI, and our parents), I've seen the terry cloth lounge chair covers online, and I'm going to try to make my own.  I'm not very good at sewing but I"m going to do a test run with one of the dogs towels, see how it goes then get beach towels on sale and use them.  Anyone see any beach towels on sale cheap?  I've been looking but they look pretty much sold out!

          definitely doing one bag per couple - or one bag per room, because we have some singles coming. (and well my grandma and great-aunt are sharing a room, so they're going to get their own)

            I'll have to keep checking them out, Iwent by yesterday and it was $22 a meter!  Ridiculous!  BUt I got cheap towels at Giant Tiger and used that to create my first one, then I"ll use a better quality on the next one once I know it doesn't look like crap.  But good idea, I"ll have to keep checking it out!  Beach pillows sounds so cute!  What shape?  Is it  for the wedding or just for regular use?

            And I'm giving it out per couple, except for our two guy friends that are sharing a room, they're both going to get one.  But in the couples ones, some items I'll give more so they can both use it sort of deal.

             

            Also great idea for the bug spray I came up with.  At Mountain Equipment Co-Op I know they have it for sure, but they have Watkins insect repellant lotion, and it apparnatly works great.  They have a 240ml bottle for $14, so what I'm thinking of doing is getting a bunch of small 60ml bottles from the dollarstore or walmart or something and filling them up that way, mght be cheaper then the wipes with shipping, but we will see.

                The lotion sounds like a good idea! I'll have to check that out too. I'm also doing one bag per couple and one each for non couple, roomies. I'm still debating doing a small kids bag or just throwing their stuff in the main bag.

                  A kids bag would be fun to make!  I don't have any kids coming, unfortunately beacuse I've seen some really cute kids beach things but its all adults.  Maybe you can even get a little kids themed tote, a small one and do little ones to give to them!  How many kids are going?

                      I'm not sure how many kids yet since we don't have final numbers. But now is the time to find kid beach toys and stuff so I might just be stocking up on goggles and things from the dollar store. Little kids are easy but it's the 10-13 year olds that are tough. My cousin is a junior bridesmaid (she's 12) so I want to do something special for her but I'm not sure what.
