    I don't know if I'm going to do OOT bags or just a favor for the wedding night.  I was thinking about the traveling back with stuff too, and I don't want to have to pack to much stuff.  I like your ideas!  I was thinking of getting a few little things too once we get to Jamaica and then place them on the tables at the reseption.  I like those boxes you found!  They are really nice!!! 

    Thank you for your input!! I'm a little clueless when it comes to that stuff! :)

    Fi and I were really torn about favors because we have to travel with them there and people also have to bring them back so we decided to bring with us really cute little favor boxes and attach these little chalk board things to write "thank you" on and when we get to Punta Cana we are going to buy key chains. Everyone uses a key chain and its easy to travel back with and serves as a memory at the same time :) we are still considering a little gift bag instead of the box and then we can add in mini bottles of brugal and a local postcard with the keychain...budget will determine that in a little while once i get some other stuff done....and these things also save me from having to travel with anything :)

     

    these are the boxes and bags i found that we are considering....(hard to see the bag in this pic, its not huge but is tall enough for a mini booze bottle to give you the idea....i really love the boxes though LOL)

          torilynnsmith and janet I will post a pic today.....but first off I have to fix my invite inserts lol lol THESES THINGS ARE GOING TO KILL ME ....i printed 60 inserts yesterday baby blue, orange, and bright yellow, then when the FI came home from work of course I was feeling proud that i had them all done, then he tells me that they were the wrong size......if we wanted them to be all seen I should have made them all different sizes.

           

          So now, not only do I now have to re do them in my computer lol but now I have to go back to michaels and get more paper.....because you know i used them all lol lol

           

          Im laughing, but inside im crying!!!!!!!!!!!  THEY BETTER WORK OUT AND LOOK AMAZING when Im done with them. TORILYNNSMITH.... if you need any ideas for favs or gifts just ask ive got a ton of ideas, or pm me

            OH MAN....that sucks! I templated mine first and made a mock up to use as my guideline and to make sure i liked it before i dove in head first LOL I am so glad i did...i changed my mind 7 times until i loved it!!! I had the same issue (look at pic above) because they are staggered i had to do the inserts 3 different sizes plus the invite itself and layered matts underneath them ...SOOOO much paper cutting, you had to see my table i had piles of stuff everywhere LOL ...actually i think i have a pic!!! I was burried ....I think the pic i have is when i got set up and it was neat....once i got going there were trimmings and glue and the finished pile was getting huge hahaha I will have to find it at home on my laptop and post it later :) :)

             

            good luck! i feel your pain! definitely take breaks!

                    Hi everyone,

                    I'm from Windsor, ON.

                    My Fiance and I will be getting married April 2013 (so far away!) in Jamaica. We're planning on doing a site visit in April 2012. I don't even know where to begin! I was thinking Iberostar or RIU

                     

                    - Jessica and Mike

                      Just a heads up that RIU's have been getting horrible reviews for group bookings! My TA suggested we try another resort or we needed to sign a waiver saying that if they changed anything including our flights they were not liable. I guess this has been a growing problem with their groups department. It's a shame since they are such beautiful resorts!
