    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)

              Hi KatieJ,

              Koozies are by Canary Marketing -- we worked with Cadi who is a friend of ours.  :)

                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
