These will be hanging over the back of the chairs at the ceremony for each lady. I thought it would look very elegant and I can control where everybody sits haha!!

 

 

that's an awesome idea

I just got the zippo lighter i had engraved for my dad from beachthemeweddingshop.com   LOVE it.  It says

Father of the bride

Jamaica 11/11/11

 

I think it was $33-$35 and totally worth it.

We had 140 guests, so this was tough. But for less than $10/bag, we ended up having:

  • large canvas beach bags from Oriental Trading Company with handmade "Gracias" tags with our logo on the back
  • One Corona and one lime per person in custom Koozies, plus an original "Corona and Lime" welcome poem
  • a handmade bracelet (a friendship bracelet in our colors made by our niece) honoring a loved one who is no longer with us
  • Mexican candy (from the Gigante in Cabo)  in clear palm tree bags from Oriental Trading Company
  • Different bags filled with squirt guns, pool toys, and candy for the kids.

 

WISH we had remembered the itinerary to put in the bag!  People were asking for one all weekend.

 

Here are pics of some of the stuff (all pics from Alec and T. -- www.alecandt.com)

Thanks for the information!!! I was looking on the website and saw lots of ideas (cute little sunscreen packages) but i noticed when looking that it listed (for a few things) bulk prices (with the lowest bulk number at 500) were you able to buy only a few cozies? or is there a minimum? I will also have to check if they ship to canada... i have looked at other sites and got excited only to discover they dont ship it here:( I hope so becasue they have some great stuff!! Thanks again!!

This stuff is great!  The bracelet is very sweet and thoughtful.  I love the Corona & Lime idea!  Did you buy the Corona in Mexico before you got to the resort?  I'd like to do something along those lines, but I'm worried about the amount of time needed to land, get the beer, get to the hotel, put together the bags and distribute them all within hours of getting there. Lol makes me tired just thinking of it wacko.gif  Any tips would be great!

    • 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.
