    does anyone know of a cheap place to get 28 lanyards and zippered key card holders????? (with cheap shipping to canada?)  i was thinking of scrapping the idea, but then yesterday actually read a REALLY good review on trip advisor for my resort and he did recommend bringing a lanyard for the key.

          Erin, I'm glad you finally found something he liked and in the right color.

           

          I wish that I could find a check list for a destination wedding. I want to make sure I have all the little things covered but all the lists I find are either focused on local weddings and catering or don't cover all our little shopping lists, like sand ceremony and table cards.

           

          For FI & GM, we still need to make a final decision on ties, FI is going shopping with them this weekend for shirt and pants.

           

          Both his parents need attire.

           

          I need shoes, but am holding off until dress #3 arrives.

           

          Need to order BM jewelery.

           

          We need vases for sand ceremony, I didn't want the traditional set.

           

          I need to make paper cones for rose petals.

           

          Need to find paper for programs, waiting for a good card stock sale at Michaels.

           

          We need gifts for parents, BM & GM. (suggestions?)

            Laura - someone else suggested checking out Acklands Grainger. They are a safety supplies store with locations everywhere. I'm pretty sure they would carry them and will usually let you break open packages. I don't know about pricing though because my company shops there almost everyday, so we usually get a big discount.

              Yeah I think their shipping is pretty high actually, I think they charged me like $12 or something.

                      I LOVE the color of FIs shirt.  It actually matches the color I painted the kitchen last fall (yes, our kitchen is orange!).  I'm glad that is done.

                       

                      When I look at all you have to do, I feel like I'm really forgetting stuff.  We are not doing a sand ceremony I guess... I never really thought about it, but I do like the idea... Hmm...

                       

                      My parents also need attire, but I'm so not interested in working on that...which is bad, I know!

                       

                      The gift for my parents is partially done I think...  We upgraded their room at the resort, so they will have a much nicer room!  But I feel I might want to do something else too...  Hmm... 

                      The gift that I'm doing for the BM, is I had custom bags made for them by a local girl on etsy.  I absolutely LOVE them!  I have also gotten them earrings, some special snacks for their bags, and I paid for 1/2 of their hair & make-up

                       

                      I do not know what FI is doing for the GM....
