    So I wanted to share my progress! My fiance and I are both teachers, and a couple days before holiday break I promised him I would put the planning on hold until break... well I sure made up for that agreement since we've been off. I'm getting my oot bags started and I'm having a blast!

    Here's what I've ordered, I'll post pictures when everything comes in!



    chapstick labels from sticky business cards

    survival kit tags from oversized postcards (i may have to reorder with regular sized postcards)

    luggage tags from business cards

    towel tags from business cards

    do not disturb door hangers from rack cards

    welcome letters from oversized postcards

    I've also ordered all the free stuff, but not sure what I'm doing with it yet!


    I've also ordered totes from cheaptotes.com... now going to figure out how to screen print them


    Stopped at the dollar tree for:

    3 for $1 hand sanitizer

    colorful bandaids

    soduko books and wordsearches

    individual tylonol packs


    even though I still have a lot to still do, I'm excited I got started.


    One great find is palm tree goody bags at oriental trading co.


    Now I'm searching for beach towels and fans!


    happy wedding planning!

      Wow…check you out!  You’ve inspired me. Love the idea of the sticky business cards for chapstick labels. Never even thought of that.


      Keep up the good work!

          I think that after this wedding is planned I will know enough about what works and what doesn't work that I could go into business for "Destination Wedding Planning". Unfortunatly as soon as you perfect something, you've done it and it doesn't need to be done again.


          Is anyone making their own bouquets?

            Yeah! the stuff in your OOT bags sounds great. I might copy the Sudoku idea. Can I ask where did you guys get a good deal on chapstick??

            Also, isn't it hard to roll the sticky business cards around the tube? Or is it a different, thinner paper?

              I haven't bought chapstick yet. I've read that dollar tree has 3 packs of chapstick at times, so I'm keeping my eyes open for this. I'll have to see how the chapstick labels work after they come in. I'll keep you posted. I'm adding more to my bags, but I figure if I do a little at a time, it won't seem so costly.
