    Thanks for sharing this Lily, I didn't even think of this.

    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! :-)

      Beachbum did you buy the travel mugs? I would love to see them!!!

       

      I love the jute bags, I think I am going to have to go check them out! The one near us had a different version but your are so much nicer! Did the pink style come in any other colours?

       

      Leigh have you ordered the bags from OT yet? I am curious as to what shipping is going to be like!!!

          I made mine by purchasing trading card sleeves at Dollarama (5 sleeves for $1).  They are a hard plastic so I brought them home and used a one hole punch to put the hole through and purchased 100 luggage loops on ebay for $5 plus shipping so the loops came to about $11 total.

          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.

            That's really smart Janette, I never would have thought about that! I have heard other brides used riboon in their colours instead of loops which I know you can also get at the dollarstore! Just a suggestion for anyone thinking of DIYing their luggage tags!!!

             

            Love this forum!!

              I didn't buy the mugs yet but plan to... wanted to run it by the FI first and get his thoughts on it. They weren't insulated or anything so won't keep anything cold!

               

              The pink bags also came in red and I think there were blue ones. There were a ton of bags! They also had the smaller jute that I bought in other colors or with different colored handles... I wish I'd taken pics, sorry girls!! For anyone in TO, I went to the dollorama near finch/steeles/victoria park area, I can't remember exact location and am not familiar with the area. I popped in for the jute bags and was pleasantly surprised by the store, it was huge and they had a wedding section with little wedding boxes, ribbons, cards, etc... And a huge crafts section!
