    Ok I just realized something haha. I am on the same flight as the majority of my guests. And I plan to assemble the bags once I get to my room. So it isn't possible to have them delivered to the guests' rooms when they check-in.

     

    But still ... I'd like the "surprise" factor of having them show up unexpectedly in their room at some point ....

      Well I think if worse comes to worst, we will just find out what room everyone is in and hand deliver the bags and just say something like "we wanted you to be able to enjoy the wedding favours before the wedding" (since our big favour is the travel mugs, which will be in the bags).

       

      PS. I found some nice fans at Michaels today. $30 for a box of 18. (I'm sure there was a coupon I could have used but I forgot about that and was too lazy to go back lol). They come boxed individually in skinny little rectangular boxes so they won't take up too much space.

        I think the fee for having the bags delivered to the rooms is $2 per room

          Yeah, and we'll probably only have about 20 rooms total. So I'd totally be willing to pay $40 to have the bags delivered. I just worry that some of them won't actually get delivered ... or staff will "help themselves" to something in the bags. Very untrusting, I know. But I wouldn't put it past most all-inclusive staff! (Again, the bad taste I have is from my Mexico experiences .. so I'm probably not being very fair to Jamaican AI staff).

            We had about 40 rooms to deliver our bags to. We delivered them ourselves with the assistance of some of our friends / guest and we also left some at the lobby so people could get them at check in. We did not have to pay for that as we  just asked when we arrived. No one took anything from the bags.

                Hi lindsayraz,

                When are you getting married?   I have a group of guests flying out of Edmonton on Nov 16 and was told there is another wedding party on that flight?!?  Where did you get the mugs from?  I have been looking but we have 75 guests and the shipping is so high on them.  I have been looking for fans so I will have to check out Michaels tomorrow...thanks for the tip!

                  I wish I was going next month! Mine isn't until March 2012. You must be getting excited!!!

                   

                  I haven't done my mugs yet. I am debating between doing Bubba Mugs or the drink cups with straws. I'm mostly waiting until I have a final guest count closer to the new year. But either way, it's gonna be pretty pricy  :S  Have you tried local promo places?

                    Oh ReggaeDancin, look in the wedding section at Micheals for the fans. My store had plain wooden ones and wood ones with blue silk, which is my wedding colour! (Waves of Love).

                      For our OOT bags, we left them at the lobby for the staff to distribute.  When our guests checked it, the bag was there waiting for them.  No complaints, everyone received their bag and everyone loved them!

                       

                      Advice for cups/mugs... make sure you get them with lids!!  The water is pretty deep around the pool bar, so when you go "walking out" it was a definite must for a top!  So happy ours had lids!
