We are going to get the rum and coffee in jamaica. Still waiting on my coasters from ebay. Hopefully they aren't too heavy.

        This is my first time posting a picture so hope it works:

        They're okay but it's the first time I've ordered something from ebay and had to pay COD. I think it's because the seller uses UPS and didn't mark it as a gift. I would have found them locally if I knew this before hand. (I'm in Canada).

        I'm getting the coffee and rum from here:

            We wanted to say Thank You to our guests for coming to our wedding, by paying for everyone to go to Dunns River Falls. It's something that everybody will want to do, and it's going to be awesome to have a group of 50 people doing it together!

              I am doing OOT bags that will have some favours in them. In my OOT bags, I'm including starfish wine stoppers, luggage tags, beach towels, ocean themed wine charms, etc. I'm also doing small starfish picture frames as placecards for dinner (we have a starfish theme going on). Between all of those things, I think I've got favours and OOT covered.

                  our wedding is in 2 months and I am almost done with the favors and OOT bags = ) - we are doing both , i think the guests will certainly appreciate it and if you are trying to cut costs you can do one bag per room/couple.
                  we got our OOT bags from Dollar Tree, Inc.: Bulk Dollar Tree Products at Dollar Tree Prices! with a "go green" theme. and also ordered a lot of misc. things from the website as well - everythings a dollar! and if you have a local store you can pick it up there to defer the shipping charge.
                  for our favors - we designed our own shot glasses - marc and I collect them everytime we go on vacation - so thought that it was a cute idea. they came out amazing - are purple (wedding color) with our names, date, and location on them with a clip art of palm trees! Coffee Mugs, Shot Glasses, Wine Glasses, Beer Mugs, Promotional Products, Tote Bags, Champagne Glasses, Wedding Favors , Sports Bottles, T-shirts, Promotional Pens & personalized Glassware. they came out to less then $2 a piece and you can find coupons online!
                  good luck ladies!

                    We are doing the regular OOT bags for everyone (approx 20) & then for the reception we are doing small photo album favors & jordan almonds in a little bag. FI said he won't marry me unless we have jordan almonds. LOL

                      We're doing OOT bags and 2 favors. The guests will have fans for the ceremony waiting for them on the seats, and silver starfish wine stoppers on their plates for the reception. We figure they're traveling for our big day, so why not spoil them a bit.
