Need help with favors for little ones and teenagers

Recommended Posts

What do I give teenagers?  I'm giving cds to the adults but don't think the teenagers would go for our music.  Also, I have a few little ones as well like 4yrs, 2 yrs, 1yr, 3 yrs.

We are giving our Jr. BM and our ring bearers water bottles in our colors...I also got them each a beach towel (we are doing that for the rest of the wedding party) and our ring bearer is actaully carrying a starfish with our colors for a ring pillow, so I got him one of those as a keepsake.  They have a lot of cute tropical themed stuff at orientaltrading.com  maybe check there for anything do-able?!

I will look into the iTunes gift cards.  Not sure if they are valid here.  The other two ideas should be easy to do.  Thanks!

I had some younger children at my AHR.  I'm not sure if this counts as a favor, but I made them a coloring/activity book from things I found on this forum and the Internet.  It was about 12 pages long.  It included facts about Jamaica (where we got married), coloring, word search, image search, etc.  I gave them a pack of 4 crayons (from Oriental Trading) and temporary tatoos.  I put the crayons and tattos in a small sand bucket (from Oriental trading as well).  The kids seemed to really enjoy them, and the parents appreciate it.  Actually more than one of this kids came up to me to show off thier tattoos.

For the teenagers a magazine to entertain is always good. And candy/gum is always appreciated! Good luck.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
