            I know I bought the 70 x 120 for the rectangular tables and 108 in for the round.  The round table cloth and over lay worked out well.  The rectangular cloth was a bit short (length wise) for the sweetheart table, so I would recommend getting a longer one. Hope that helps!

              Hi ladies! Amurka its good to have you back! I was worried about you! I only have 13 sleeps left before we leave for DLR – I can’t believe it! We sent out our OOT bags last week and everyone loved them. We included an “in sickness and in health” bag with a first aid kit, electrolytes and painkillers. Then there was an “in good times and in bad” bag with personalised postcards, suncream, insect repellent, sewing kit, ear plugs, key card and tip money cases with lanyard and aloe vera lip balm. Then a “to make life easier” bag with luggage tags, toothpaste and toothbrush, sunglasses wipes, personalised notepad and pen, and a plug adaptor (UK to US). Here are some photos of the finished product!

                Also, just thought i'd share this idea with you - my FI and I have agreed to buy "each other" a good camcorder to use on our honeymoon and to capture some of the happy moments that will hopefully come in our future as husband and wife So I was looking for a small idea to get him a little gift and I came up with this. It is an original newspaper from the day he was born (The Irish Times) which is his favourite daily newspaper. The presentation folder is so nice and I even got to personalise the certificate of authenticity :)

                  @chanelo 

                   

                  I love your OOT bags! Congratulations again and enjoy your wedding week!!!

                   

                  I like the idea of shipping everyone's OOT bags ahead of time so you don't have to take an extra suitcase! Where did you get your totes from and personalized and about how much did they cost?  Where did you get the key card and tip money cases with lanyard?

                   

                  We are getting married at DLR on Oct 29 2012 and I am getting more excited each time I hear about another BDW bride's wedding.

                    Hi Vancouver bride! Thanks a million. I got the bags and labels from vistaprint - all of the items I got from vistaprint were free with the exception of the bags - I would say they averaged out at about $3.50 per bag because I kept an eye out for special offers, 1/2 price etc. Yes I think it's a good idea to send the OOT bags ahead of time, particularly if you're including items such as suncream, toothbrushes etc that people will purchase for themselves if they havent already received their bags. And of course so you dont have to carry them all! I didnt a little brochure too which included information on the flights etc which people need to know in advance - here's a photo of the brochures (also free on vistaprint!) The card holders and lanyards were purchased from an american company and I had them shipped here - I'll look up the name again and let you know!
