    Hi Ladies!

     

    Just wanted to share a source I found for those zip-up badge holders you attach to wrist coils for tip money/room keys. https://www.acklands...de=IDM1815-1110

     

    They are close in price to the American websites and they have a lot of retail locations. I am driving to pick mine up tomorrow - so no shipping costs! and they sell them in whatever quantity you want.

        That's so funny they sell the badge holders. I'm there a couple times a week to pick up stuff for work.  On another note, if you are looking for holders without the zipper, Walmart now sells the in packs of 10 for $1.99. They also sell lanyards in 10 packs. Everything can be found with the office supplies.

            Ya they sell the non- zip ones everywhere, but I had a heck of a time finding the zip ones in Canada! Which of course you need so your money doesn't fall out into the pool/ocean!

              I'm getting excited! I still have a year to go, but I want make them already!  Let's hope my assumptions for how many people are right.  :)

               

              I did get started a bit.  I ordered my dress from Netbride.com.  When you order from them you get a 120 credit towards and veil and 50 towards shoes.  Im not using a veil and none of the shoes really suited what I wanted, so I was able to use that credit towards wedding accessories.

               

              So I got wine and bottle openers (beach themed) for the OOT bags (since when we were in Mexico, we wanted them for our rooms!) and personalized lip balms.

              http://www.mywedding...ine-opener.html

               

              I probably would't have spent as much on this sort of stuff normally, but it was free (not to mention my dress was $200 cheaper to start with)!

                HI Girls

                I was at Zellers this morning and they have light pink and black travel mugs with a handle and a stainless steel band around them for only 2.99!  You could totally put a clear sticker on them. I would do this but of course my mug order just came in this past week. Just thought I would share.

                  Thanks fellow Canadians. Great thread, I too was getting jealous with all the US stores! I have been living at dollarama lately, as for the pepto, I just bought the chewable ones from walmart and they are individually wrapped to I just cut them apart and used them like that.

                    Just  a quick question, when checking bags through customs does it matter if your wedding week survival kit is already individually bagged, and all your oot bags are put together. These bags are being checked and not brought on the plane. Hubby is freaking out that something or someone will say something because it looks like I will be bringing at least 20 oot bags with us-which includes bubba mugs for everyone. This is for our daughters wedding - we are going to havae to bring 2 extra suitcases with us. Thanks for any replies

                    You should not have a problem with checking your luggage with the OOT bags already prepared. However as an added precaution, you should take receipts for what is in the OOT bags and tell the customs agents it is gifts for the wedding guests (this will only be used if you get searched).  Not sure where you are flying, but usually most of the customs officers are okay, they just want to know you are not bringing in items for resale. So by showing your original reciepts and stating that they are gifts you should have no problems.
