    One thing I'm planning on taking are Wish Lanterns. Not sure if anyone has posted about them on here.

    Basically they are paper lanterns. You guests whisper or write a wish in them, then you set alight the little burner in the middle and they float away like little hot air balloons of light. Look really pretty at night. Going to take about 40(one for each guest), so should look good.

      For our OOT I have:

      puzzle books
      hand sanitizer (swine addition :) )
      beach mats
      battery operated fans
      playing cards
      coloring books
      mexican wedding cookies
      beach balls
      spanish books
      first aid kits
      and welcome books

      We didn't do lotions, candles, lip balm, sunscreen, etc just cause in my opinion you're going to the beach for a week why wouldn't you bring sunscreen?? I just bought stuff that I really thought our group would use and nothing else!

          I think all we will have in terms of decorations is paper lanterns for our cocktail hour. But we may not even have those since I haven't purchased them yet and I'm not sure if I really need them. Originally our cocktail hour was going to be our "reception"...we were doing it after dinner for 2 hours. BUT we just cut it back to an hour due to finances.

          There's only 17 guests coming with us, so we don't need a private reception or anything like that. I don't even think I'm going to have enough room for everything I have to bring down as it is...

          I'm bringing:

          10 welcome bags and all the items (at least a full large suitcase itself)
          bouquets and bouts
          flower girl bucket
          My 2 dresses, FI's 2 suits (we're doing our TTD before the wedding so had to get 2 outfits!)

          I guess it could be worse...but it's a lot for me!
