There is going to be a small mound of sand and these are going to be stuck into it.

    I am also spending some time on my table number project, but then I am leaning towards no place cards. The ones I like are a couple bucks each, thought its an easy pass from that perspective.

    Happy planning.
    I love the umbrella idea! Very cute. Your guests will love that!

Although, that is were i got my idea from!

      What is everyone doing for thier OOT bags? I was going to do towels that say, "Dreams 11/13/2010", a personalized mug, a just in case kit and then just a welcome note with the wedding details.

      How about everyone else?
      I like the towel idea! Where are you getting the towels and personalization done? We're definitely doing a just in case kit with tylenol, bug spray, sun block, aloe...things like that, but I haven't thought about any of the other fun things to put in it. I was thinking I would look for a tote bag with maybe a clear front pocket to slide the welcome note into it. I'm going to ask Ana if these could be handed out by reception as people check in rather than be put in their rooms. I hope they can do it. For some reason I like the idea of them getting something right as they check in.

        we will go to costco and get water and candy bars to add to bag!

        So far thats it... Any other suggestions
        Great ideas! Are you giving each person their own bag or are you just doing one bag per room? I have been to one destination wedding and we got one bag for both of us. Maybe for people with kids we could just add extra kid stuff to those bags? Thanks!

          these will have a tag of 'shake at the kiss'. I did however also break down and get some bubbles, not quite sure why aside from the fact that I was at a store and got 50 for about 7 bucks as they were on sale.

            I would like the same thing...for the guests to get the bags as they check in. i got these awesome beach towels from Kmart...couldn't believe it. They aren't personalized but they are really nice,brightly colored towels. A few weeks ago they had them on sale for $3! Couldn't beat that!

              That is what I was going to do too. I love the maracas. I emailed mischka and she wants me to send her my invitation so she can see the colors.

                Hey! We have a place in North Wildwood, but she took a ride over to the Cape May Whicker store. They are white starfiish that came in a pack of 6, perfect size and the best price by far! I searched the web for whole salers and this the best price we found

                    Hey pbjwed!
                    Here is a link to a website that sells the startfish already painted pink. Finger Starfish
                    Might save you a lot of time so you don't have to paint all of them!!! Plus they are only 75 cents plus shipping. I can try and post of picture of the box/tray when I return from traveling.
