      di... let me consult my handy, dandy list for my OOT bags... we are doing
      -beach bag
      -towel
      -bubba kegs
      -decks of cards
      -keycard/money holder
      -luggage tag (since we're giving them out before)
      -first aid kit (pepto, immodium, advil, aloe, band aids)
      -pool floats ($2.50 each at wal-mart.. heck yes!)
      -tide pens
      -welcome/information booklet
      ...i think that's it! for now at least! i will find a way to get to my folks' house and take pictures.. hopefully this weekend!

      i am seriously in love with your invites... if we had poop stickers i think my future step daughter would die! she's 6 and i swear every joke she tells has to do with farting or pooping.. very lady-like.

      and i LOOOVE your FI's suit! i think that would have sealed the deal for me too!! and i feel your pain... my dress is an ivory/champagne color so white things may look funny against it, but i don't care, i love that darn dress too much.

      such a tease! post pics/links, whatever you can find!! this is one thing i wish my girls would just figure out already! i'm afraid they'll wait until it's too late next year! at least i already got them their sandals... they'll all end up in bathing suits, but at least their feet will match!

        ebredhawk - those are quite the OOT bags you've got going there! How in the world are you getting it all down to the resort?! And how many guests do you have, or at least how many are you anticipating? I'm so excited to get my bags started but I know I could get carried away SOOO easily! Can't wait to see pics when you get them!

        di - thanks for the links!! I couldn't see the first because it kept freezing my browser, but the second one worked and the funny thing is that we just attended a wedding a week ago and I was totally trying to get FI to wear a vest and everything! We didn't find one in time but nice coincidence.

        doblauvelt - I was looking at a stores website during lunch today and I found a lot of dresses that I want to go try on there so I'm a bit excited again (vast improvement from my miserable self after shopping this past weekend)!! What a roller coaster!!!

        shankd - I think that my FI is going to be dressed a bit more casually as well but since I don't know for sure what kind of dress I'll end up with, I told him that I still would like black bottoms, even if they aren't formal dress pants, and a white top. I think the GM will be in khakis so FI will stand out from them that way and not look as casual. I'm sure you'll find something in the middle for you!!

            your dresses are fabulous!! i saw the thread...can't wait to see what the final 2 dresses will look like!

            erin - you have quite the list for your OOT bags - what are those bubba kegs you speak of?? i'm all about poop and fart jokes. and i fart a lot. so, i guess your future daughter in law and i would get along great! lol. seriously, PM me your addy - next time i go to the japanese store, i'll pick up a sheet of the stickers (they're only $1.50!!) and drop them in the mail for you...it's a japanese potty training chart. haha. she'll get a kick out of it - she can potty train her dolls or something.

            echo - sorry your having such trouble finding a dress! it is a pretty trying experience...but you'll find one and we are all waiting to see a picture when you do!

              here's my fun trick... most of my guests live close to us, so we're actually handing out the bags ahead of time. we bought them so they would work as a carry-on and then each couple can bring their stuff separately... saves us from having to bring it all! if you can believe it, this is me and my mom "not getting carried away".

              FI's bday is april fool's day so we're going to have a big dinner and hand them out then! we're not expecting any more than 20 guests, and only 3 of them aren't part of a couple. that definitely cuts down on the costs some!

              omg.. i am pming you right now!! i love it and i'm sure my stepdaughter will too!

              these are the bubba kegs (we got the 20 oz):

              http://www.bubbakeg.com/Products.aspx

              they come in all sorts of sizes and colors. they are amazing at an AI because bartenders will just fill it up with whatever you want and they keep things really cold in the heat. we tested them out.. kept ice from melting for about 9 hours on an 85 degree day, so not too shabby!

                I was TOTALLY thinking of handing them out early too!!! We have a handful of guests that are departing from different airports than mine, so those would have to be packed, but otherwise the majority of our guests will be flying down with us! And strangely enough, my FI's birthday is April 6, so although we didn't have a birthday dinner planned yet, I'm sure that we could arrange something!! I just want to find a way to seal the bags in some way so that everyone has to wait until they're at the resort to find out what's inside!!

                p.s. how in the world does this multi-quote thing work?? I can't figure it out and haven't been able to find it on a search

                  definitely an excuse to get all of your guests together for a birthday/pre-wedding celebration! i love the idea of keeping everything a secret from them.. that would be tricky!! i'm planning on shipping bags to our few guests going out of different airports.. a small price to pay to make it easier!

                  i love the multi-quote.. what you do is each post that you want to quote you click the "MQ" and then on the last one you want to quote you click just "quote" and it will bring up a page with all of those posts listed. if i didn't have that i'd forget a ton of things i want to comment on!

                    Thank you, thank you, thank you! Haha, I'd been bouncing back and forth between two pages to catch everyone that I wanted to reply to. Not fun!

                    I'm going to ponder some options for keeping my secret on my way home from the office... I'll let you know if I come up with anything!

                      I excited to say I've got my bridesmaid dress in!! I got my wedding shoes as well. My rings came in as well alittle while ago. Now I am waiting for all the RSVP so I can start my OOT bags. I would love to put pictures up of the dresses but I can never get it to work, anyone have good advice to putting pictures up? My second wedding dress will be in next week, and the first $$ one will be Oct 1. Things are starting to come into place. I would hope so 7 months goes by fast!
