    Great planning thread!! I do have a question: where did you get the "wet bikini bag" I have been searching for them as a great addition to my BM OOT bags. I loved the tags for the paint brushes as well. I want to do something like that but haven't really come up with anything yet. I will look into istockphoto to see if I can come up with something cute I'm already a registered user just never thinked to look there. Everything came out awesome I know your guests are going to love the bags and youa re going to have a fabulous weekend. Enjoy!!!

      Thanks, Janine! You know, I found those bikini bags on a random trip to Marshalls. I totally wasn't looking for them & just passed through the purse/wallet section one day in December/January and there they were! (and only $4 each!!). But, funny you should ask - I was just at Macy's last week looking in the scarf section for a wrap/pashmina and sitting on the check-out counter were the cutest wet bikini bags! They were $20 each I think, but bigger than the ones I bought. I think there were 2 styles, both with large polka dots (one aqua/lime and one orange/pink, I think). I literally almost bought the aqua/lime ones cuz they were so cute, but I managed to have some self-control and passed on 'em. Anyway, I tried searching the Macy's website with no luck so maybe it's just an in-store thing, but might be worth checking out.

      If that's a no-go here are some I found just doing a google search.

      Good luck! I'm sure your bridesmaids will appreciate them :)

      And here are the paintbrush tags. You can add more to the page if you need to.

            I really loved all of the planning, & I probably would've done more but we're simply out of time. (a blessing in disguise I think)

            Shannon, I haven't totally decided but I'm thinking I'll have one of the bridesmaids deliver the book to P while I'm getting my hair done and he's getting ready in his brother's room. I went back & forth on this, between me giving him the book so I can see his reaction and not being there but having it delivered so then he can think on it all day without seeing me. I think I like the element of build-up without being there, but I guess I'll have to see where he's actually going to be so I can have him receive it privately. I could probably talk to his brother to let him know I need him to be in a room around 2 or so. eek! He's gonna freak!
            Karen, I gave it to him on our wedding day. Around 2ish he came up to our room (I was in my sister's getting ready - I stayed with my mom the night before) and I had given my BM a key to put the gift on the bed with his card. It was great, he was by himself and he called the room and spoke with a BM because we couldn't talk...and he LOVED it.
            then my brother deliered my gift...WooHoo...love jewelry.

                    Karen! Everything looks soooo amazing! I am just ecstatic for you and FI. You're legal day is almost here and everything is going to be perfect :) I think your cake topper is adorable, well I think all the stuff you pulled together is fabulous. Have the best time in PV and enjoy every second of the wedding and spending time with your friends and family. Drink a Coronita for me and I'll be thinking of you on the 29th!!!
