CANADIAN OOT BAG info...where to shop!

Recommended Posts

So I finally hit up the Dollar Giant here in Calgary and got some great stuff!

-playing cards 2 for $1

-mini loofah - pack of 2

-travel candles

-matchsticks for candles

-slim CD cases for homemade CD's

-bandaids to top up first aid kits

 

And if you are making up special bags for the kids, there's a whole aisle with toys, and lots of beach toys!

 

I'm still looking for bulk mini packets of alka-selzer / immodium...anyone know anywhere locally to get them? Also the pocket size Spanish for Dummies...

Tons of great suggestions ladies! We got married last November and had a really hard time getting summer stuff (esp for the kids OOTS) after labour day so it's a great chance to stock up over the next 6 months if you are getting married in the fall/winter!

It was perfect. The weather during the day was low 80s and the evenings were nice - most ppl had a little cardigan or pashmina and that was all. The day of our wedding was the nicest evening of the week - most people went with out.

 

We had an outdoor reception and it was perfect!

Thanks so much Missy!

 

So I'm wondering if anyone has ordered OOT tote bags from Oriental Trading...I am interested in the hibiscus ones, but are we able to specify what colour we want or do we just get an assortment?

Hi gals,

I just baught some aqua coloured plastic glasses (they are pretty big) from Zellers. They were on sale for $0.75 for 2. They only had aqua and a green at my store in Kamloops. I am just going to put people's names on them. Just thought I would pass on the cheap find.

Thanks so much for this rec. I went out today and picked up 10 (52 oz) Bubba Kegs for all of the guys that are coming as guests to the wedding. The OOT bags that I had put together were too feminine and will just be for the ladies.

Hi Punkie569...I'm just wondering about vistaprint. I've taken your tip and checked out the website...but unfortunately I can only get ONE free pen. Do you have any more insider tips on how I can get a pile of them for free like you did? Thanks!!

    • Congratulations to Wedding Planners and Families of Bride and Groom. Cheapfaremart, an Orlando based Online Travel Agency offers Cheap Group Flights for Wedding Group also.
    • Thanks! I would love to get quotes from a TA but as I said I have a hard time finding a specialized one in Canada. I hope someone can point me to the right direction. 
    • The use of TA is instrumental in booking a destination wedding for several reasons: Namely, TAs have special rates and promos they can offer you, including perks of complimentary rooms and upgrades. Wright Travel actually has a Bride & Groom Fly Free Promo, which gives couples up to $1,000 cash back. These are perks you can take advantage of by working with a TA. Also, most agencies also do not charge any service fee, so you are essentially having the expertise and convenience of a travel agent without paying a dime. Experienced agents will also have valuable insight into the best property to host your wedding, and if they are familiar with your resort, they can also offer you and your guests tips on how to make your stay even better. Good TAs will also have close connections wiht the wedding department, essentially benefiting you throughout the planning process. Securing a room block is also important to ensure your resort does not run out of rooms and also to secure a group rate. Lastly, having a travel agent handle you and your guests travel plans is vital so that you don't have to deal with it. Anything can happen when it comes to travel and if you don't have an agent, your guests will turn to you for help. As a former destination wedding bride, I did not work with a TA and I regretted it. Having to answer a million questions from guests on where to stay, where to book, where to go, drove me nuts. When it comes down to the final stretch of the wedding, it was the last thing I wanted to do when I already had a million things on my plate wedding wise.  Here's a more in depth article regarding the benefits of using a TA.  https://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/wedding-tips/c/planning/10-reasons-why-you-should-use-wright-travel-agency-for-your-destination-wedding-r2439/  
    • We actually did our legal wedding at home -- a quick and easy ceremony at the local courthouse about a week before our destination wedding. Afterwards, we just went to lunch and shared a few celebratory cocktails 😊We did this so we didn't have to deal with the legal requirements (arriving early, blood test, etc.) you must abide by in Mexico. For us it worked out perfectly and our ceremony in Mexico was our official wedding with all our family and friends. 
    • Hi there, So I read a lot of you recommended to go through a TA rather than booking things yourself so I tried to reach out but haven't really been successful. I wrote to Wright Travel not realizing that they were only serving the US. So all I really need is actually the booking of the hotel and the wedding arrangements. Most of our guests will stay at that hotel but I know some of them will probably look for other options. Our guests will arrange their own flights as they are coming from different countries (Canada and Europe) and I don't see group flights coming together as they will all stay different length of time. So my questions are, why exactly would I need a travel agency to book the hotel and the wedding? I worked in event management for years and have organised events way bigger than that and could probably organise it myself. If we decide to go with a TA, does anyone have any recommendation for a Canadian TA? Thanks all!
