    I posted this in July:

    The case price for the miniature bottle of Appleton Estate VX is JA$16,929 for a case of 120. The next size up is a 200ml and the case price is $6,070 for a case of 24.

    We will happily deliver given enough notice.

    I did a currency conversion and it looks like the 120 miniature bottles of rum come out to $191.29 US currency. And the small bottles of 200ml comes to $65.59 US. For the 200ml bottles that comes out to $2.74 each, not bad!

    Not only do I not need to worry about lugging around favors but they will deliver! Those 200ml bottles are a decent size, not too big, not too small. All I have to work on is the tags for the bottles.

    I really wanted a favor that guest would use. And knowing my friends, these bottles won't make it from the reception!

    Hopes this helps.

      You all may want to think about sending your favors ahead of you via a carrier. Habe your wedding planner there to receive them and hold them until you get there. We are going to be using custom made bamboo fans that will have wedding color ribbons around the looped handles and personalized ribbon hanging down. I also create cds and other personalized items, therefore I am making wedding cds with our faces on the front etched in them. We will also be doing personalized shot glasses and coasters.

        Also, we are thinking about printing pictures for our guests as souvenirs once we receive the edited images from the photographers after the wedding.
        you can actually but the magnets already preforated and you can use software and edit your saying and other things on them. Try somewhere like walmart or an office supply store. This way you can make several different pics on your magnets that you like.

            We are getting married in Mexico and are concerned about the carrying of extra bagage weight. Let's face it they don't give you much room to bring anything extra.

            We have done they drawstring tote bags 13 x 18 imprinted with our resort name and the word Riviera Maya over a palm tree. Under palm tree is our wedding date and in the bottom corner Mark & Sue our names. I have not received them yet however the costed only $4.00 per bag. If figured it was great for carry a book, sunscreen and camera. This is the website:
            Rubber Bracelets - Silicone Wristbands - Custom - Personalized - Wholesale
            Good Luck and happy stress free planning.

              I saw a cute idea, a bride did little hangover cure bags. It was a small tulle bag, with Advil, Tumms, and Peptobismal tablets. If you just want do do something small and not go over the top with a bag full of stuff. And, I always need a little hangover help after weddings! I have also seen some hangover remedies at the drug store, called Sea Man's cure or something like that, it has cute packaging. Don't know what's in in, but it looks cute.
