    Thanks for this info! Great idea to use the optimum points! I'll hold out for another promo weekend :) I also didn't know about the pepto thing! VERY good to know :)

     

    I hit up dollarama today again and picked more jute bags, i love them! I also found some fuschia colored ones for my BMs.  I also picked up these hand sanitizers at bath and body works for 1$ each + $10 off for spending more than $40 (picked up a few other things). Pics attached!!

     



    Hi ladies!

    The Avon deal is great!  I did not purchase my after sun aloe there but I got it free!

     

    I went shopping to Shoppers Drug Mart when they have a 20X the points and I used the points last weekend.  They had a spending point event so I was able to redeem 80 000 optimum points for 200$.  They have Life brand Aloe tube (in a medium size) for 3.99 each but that was "free" for me.  I was also able to purchase some meds (Ind. wrapped Gravol for instance) and insect repellant wipes. They also sell mini bottle of Advil and Tylenol (was not able to find them in the store aisles) but they are at the front, near the cash registers.

     

    Just to let you know as I was not aware, I explained the destination wedding situation to a pharmacist since I wanted to bring some Pepto Bismol with me.  She told me that it was not a great idea since this med is interacting with a lot of other popular meds and guests are propably not aware of it.  They have a lot of other meds "safer" for the guests.

     

    So If you have many points with your Optimum card you can have a great deal there, specially if you collect your points when they 20X them!

          Hi girls... I'm sure this question has been asked but does anyone know where I can get inexpensive luggage tags? I want to personalize the oot bags by adding each person's/couples name on the luggage tags.

          Thanks!!

            Thanks BeachBum!

            I love your fuschia bag!  What a great find!!!!  I may go and check out to my local store.

             

            For the pepto, I did not know either.  I just asked her if they were selling ind. wrapped one and then she said it was not the safer med to give at large to our guests.  She suggested to give popular and safe individual meds to each guest for convenience.  So I ordered Advil and Tylenol form minimus.com to give with some Gravol. She suggested then to have a bag with more "specialized" meds to give to one person in charge and let the guests know about it.  So I bought a lot of things: eye drops, ear drops (could be useful with water related activities) Benadryl allergy cream, Polysporin, After Bite, Tums, Cold and Flu meds, Midol,  allergy meds, ect.  We have a pharmacist in our wedding party so I will propably ask him to keep the meds. Otherwise, a bridesmaid could also do it.  I think that the pharmacist was afraid I would repackage the pepto bismol myself without printing all the warnings on them.  I think her idea was smart!

              Good thing she mentioned it! And even better idea to suggest one "medical kit" with a more extensive supply. I think I may do the same and give it to my MOH or BMs.

                Hi ladies,

                 

                I was searching for a few things and came across purel handsanitizer on well.ca for 1.99 and free shipping across Canada. Thought I'd share it with you

                  Oh, I also forgot to share a idea for the OOT bag with you!

                   

                  After reading many posts on BDW about what was useful or not in the OOT bag, I was looking for things that our guests will probably forget or won't invest in it.

                  So I have purchased mini bottles of liquid soap for swimsuit to remove chlorine, sea salt and suncreen residues. I have found them @ Swimwear Etc. but I am sure that you can find them in any good swimwear store in Canada. This soap could be also use for hand washing delicate items or anything without having to use the resort laundry service. (I had a bad experience once when they did iron my spandex yoga pants!  I can still see the iron shape on them!, LOL)

                   

                  Enjoy the planning ladies! :-)

                    Dear BeachBum, 

                     

                    I was looking for the same thing!  The easiest way was to pruchase a kit to the Dollar Store.  It cames with 3 luggage laminating sheets and 3 loops. (The loops worth the money by themselves!)  You can create your own tags (I used a Vistaprint business card) and cut the remaining plastic around the business card. Let me know if you have other ideas!

                      Hi there!

                      I've checked three dollar stores in the last few days and nothing! :( I wasn't looking for kits though so will need to go back! lol I did find travel mugs for $1! I thought that was great, I have a feeling people will probably lose them anyhow so didn't want to go to expensive.
