We've decided to taylor our OOT bags to each guest as we're having a very small wedding - just family - it's about 18 people. We've decided to get books or mags that each person will enjoy (we are on a budget as well so costco is our best friend for that kind of stuff), we're getting hand sanitizer, we're also going to get a few postcards for each person while down in DR and make sure they have postage on them with the idea that by the end of our stay, they will write their favorite memory of the week and mail it to us from DR. I think that will be a great keepsake. My sister is also an Arbonne rep so I was thinking to get every couple some after Arbonne sun lotion and maybe a bunch of suncreen samples and the like from her. Among the typical advil, immodium, bandaids, double sided tape, safey pins - the kids will be getting books and sand toys and candy. For our favours at the reception, we're likely going to get small tins of our favourite loose leaf tea either from Silk Road in Victoria or David's Tea here in vancouver - it will be super easy to personalize and I know everyone coming loves tea - except the kids of course!

I have had lots of suggestions about rum, shot glasses, etc but we have a lot of people who are coming who are decidedly NON-drinkers and I want the gift to be appropriate for all of the guests, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! I am hoping to give these out at the reception (basket with pashminas at entrance area with a basket of something for the guys! Dilemma, dilemma!
