I bought 4 cute bags from Old Navy for $10 each, I just bought 1 of each of the 4 colors.
They will receive all the OOT bag stuff, plus 2 pairs of Flip Flops in our colors, also from Old Navy. Those were $5.00 per 2 pairs. I also purchased them cute makeup bags from Old Navy and filled with: Bath Pouf, Body Wash, Solid tropical perfume and flavored lip gloss. They will also have a VS luggage tag and passport cover
Lastly, I got them small Starfish Necklaces from Overstock. One of the girls already had this, so I got her the earrings that she was eyeing and told her NOT to purchase them!
Gifts from Groomsmen:
He bought the Reef Fanning Gum/Brown Sandals from Pac Sun. These are the ones that have the bottle opener on them. This was a steal since he had Pac Cash and I think it ended up being $70.00 for 6 pairs!?!?! (He bought himself and me a pair too!)
Gifts for our Parents:
I will also be doing a photobook for after the wedding, but before the wedding, I will present these to the parents. They are gorgeous and I should be receiving them soon, but they came from Etsy seller mollyandmom. Cathy was a dream to work with and I strongly recommend her!
Flower Girl Stuff:
She is 2. Bought her some sand toys, a coloring book and crayons. She will be thrilled!

Bought from Island Importer
Flower Girl Outfit:
From Smarty Pantâ€™s Boutique. We loved it so much for my niece that we added green to our color in very small moderation.
Wtoo in Daiquiri. They are so cute but what a PITA!!! Waists fit perfectly, boob area was HUGE on everyone!! It all worked out though
After ho-humming about hair flowers and Bouts, I finally ordered them from her too recently. Total for that was $40.00 â€“ 5 individual Plumeriaâ€™s and 3 bouts. I donâ€™t care if the Plumerias are not worn.

Purchased from Oriental Trading. They are the large hibiscus tote and we ordered 2 packs.
Purchased from Pier One Imports for $1.00 per mat on clearance. Also not in our colors but you canâ€™t beat cheap and cute!!
Purchased from Etsy seller Katkreation for $36.00 plus shipping. She has raised her prices considerably since I purchased (from $1.00 per candle to $4.00 per container, so itâ€™s a bit pricey though). We had 18 orange and 18 pink, with 6 varying scents. They are nice. She put her own business sticker on them, which I was not too fond of, so I spent some time with Goo-Gone and removed all of the stickers. I then purchases ribbon to wrap around the lid, glued a starfish charm (from ebay â€“ I snipped the loops off) to the top, and taped a pack of matches to the bottom.
I purchased the Johnson and Johnson ones from Target for $.97 per kit. I added an SPF lip balm to each also from target â€“ 4 pack for $2.50 and they are in tropical scents/flavors. We may or may not add bug wipes if we can find them. We were going to personalize these but got lazy!!
We found towels in our colors on clearance at Target. They were just regular bath towels but they do the trick. We have used the same ones and they are actually good quality.
Welcome letter, Photo Share Card:
Did these free on Vista Print. The â€œThings to doâ€ and Map were printed at work.

I fell in love with this cake and hope that it can be re-created by the baker my TA works with in Jamaica. It will be 2-tiered, Vanilla cake with Strawberry filling and Butter Cream.
We will surround the bottom in brown sugar â€œsandâ€ and then put these seashells on the cake as well as the top.
They were purchased from
Card done on Vista Print. Bought the box at Michaelâ€™s. We will purchase stamps and postcards in Jamaica. Bought the chest at Garden Ridge
Buckets and organza are from Michaelâ€™s. Starfish charms from Ebay. M&Ms are a mix of the supermarket and the personalized ones. They have our monogram or photo on one side, and Julie & Jim / 5*9*09 or Jamaica 5*9*09 on the other side.
Centerpieces: RIU tried to charge us $45.00 per glass vase with palm leaves. We thought this was ridiculousâ€¦so we are bringing our own. We purchased 2-pack hanging lanterns (3 for each table)
and Battery-operated white cylinder Chinese lights. We will have the coordinator put sand on the table and then these centerpieces, and then sprinkle seashells and starfish we got from OTC.
