    Hey Murmel and Jen,

     

    I 'm a Toronto bride as well and i 'm wondering if you guys are doing loot bags? If you are let me know where you find stuff. The only place i know here to get stuff is shoppers. Do you guys have any ideas?

      If anyone is sharing an order with Murmel you might want to check out the website she is using... they have "Just Married" flip flops for $7.50! And tons of other cute stuff for great prices.

      We are doing OOT bags, I am currently sewing them all myself (I'll post pictures once I'm done). We plan on trying to find those individual packs of Tynelol, Pepto,etc., we are also included lip balm with SPF. Other than that we get down ahead of our guests, and plan on buying treats locally (chocolates, candy, snacks, small tissue pack, etc.). I am trying to buy it down there to cut down on weight, plus we can't bring food with us anyway. If you find any place in town that has the single Tynelol packs let me know. Right now I think I'll have to order them from the States.

       

      Here's the general list we have so far:

      • ribbon and name tags to mark bags
      • guest phone/room directory list
      • welcome letter, with info about cocktail party, wedding, etc.
      • photo share info card (make a photo account on Snapfish, where everyone can share photos)
      • local chocolates
      • Snacks
      • postcards (2- one for guestbook, one for personal use)
      • Pepto-Bismol
      • Advil
      • Tums
      • Basic Spanish translations (print myself)
      • bandaids
      • chap stick
      • hand sanitizer
      • gum
      • pens
      • pack of cards?
      • small package of laundry soap?

Still looking for that right shade. Not too pale, but not too dark. I'm thinking I'm going to have to bring my own chair sashes down as well. The ones my WC emailed to me were waaaaay olive. Won't mix with my colour scheme. My bridesmaids are wearing bright fuschia, so olive green definitely won't go.

      So I emailed my friend, she still has the ties. And they were bright lime green! She is going to try and take a photo so you can see the colors. She bought them for $49US each, and will sell them for $20 each, if they work for you. I'll send you the pic when I get it.

        We aren't doing oot bags. They are a great idea and very thoughtful, but I didn't want to stress out about trying to find all the stuff and then worry about how I was going to fit them in my luggage (amongst other items I'll be bringing down for the wedding).

         

        Sorry I can't be of more help. They are a good idea though.

              FI wanted a white linen suit. So we picked one up earlier in the summer at Harry Rosen. It's a Hugo Boss suit. We ordered the groomsmen clothing online from Dog Funk. They are wearing Volcom short sleeve dress shirts and shorts.
