Ladies there is a great program free on the internet to make your own labels. It is called Maestro and you get the program free when you order any of their labels. I'm using them for my chapstick  and return address labels. It is very easy to use and you can even use the program in the trial mode as long as you like before making any purchases.

Okay so for our OOT Bags (we are considering this our Favor to our guests along with a cigar rolling class) we really wanted to keep it practical and by this I mean things our guests will use and don't have to take home with our names and date all over the place. This forum gave me so many ideas so thank you all! I am in the process of putting everything together and I will post pictures once I am done...


Attached to each item will be a favor tag with a unique phrase for each item (stole that idea from here wink.gif

  • Map of Punta Cana
  • Detailed List of Restaurants
  • White Chocolate Starfish with Brown Sugar at the bottom of a cellophane bag tied with Raffia..."Sweet Memories"
  • Personalized Lip Balm Tubes..."With Love and Kisses"
  • Personalized Lifesavers... "Love Savers" & ingredients reads, "Family, Friends, Love, and Laughter" (Ebay for label and Lot of Lifesavers)
  • Deck of Playing Cards (Oriental Trading, for the beach or that rainy day)... "Two of a Kind"
  • Wedding Quotes Pen and Note Pad (oriental trading)..."A True Love Story Never Ends"
  • Mini Room Spray... "Aroma-nce"

  • Wrist Coils (Oriental Trading) and Soft Vertical ID/Badge Holders for ROOM KEYS... "To Have and to Hold"
  • Hangover Kit (have yet to purchase but will def include)... "In Sickness and in Health"

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
