      Lucky girl! We're sending out 100 and I'm so dreading it!

       

      I think both are great program ideas. The MIBs would be most unique and a really nice touch. Pics of them on chairs would probably look so cool too! If you think you'll have the room in your bags for 25 bottles/sand and shells, I say go for it. I got supplies from http://www.sandartsu...ttles/mbpw5.htm. They start at just $.89 for a bottle with cork.

       

      The fans take the cake for being most practical but are definitely not unique. I'm doing them in hopes that people (even guys) would actually use them to cool off. We're getting married in Jamaica and I'd hate for them to sweat to death, lol!

       

      Let me know what you decide. I think you won't go wrong with whatever you chose.

            Thanks for the link Lisa! The more I think about, the more I love it :o) and I would definitely go with plastic...although I'd hope they wouldn't blow away!?!?! I guess that would be my only fear.  Where did you get the shells for yours??

              They were from VistaPrint also.  If you have already ordered things through them, they should be sending you emails all the time for free stuff!?  If not, get on their email list! I got 100 postcards for free.

                If you put  a little sand inside the bottles, it should help to make them heavier. Plenty of sand on the beach too :)

                  You're welcome! I think they'll stay put if you put enough sand. Luckily, you'll have tons of free sand for the taking when you get there! I got shells from the same place I bought the bottles from. They were all white so I bought some more at Michaels for variety.

                      You are amazing, I wouldn't even know where to start to create something like that! How did you find your travel agent?
