      I should probably make a list up. Things I want to do my FI says is lame lol. Anyone else have that problem? Like for example OOT bags. He said there is no need. Even the maracas & luggage tags! He doesn't want to be included in any of it so now I am second guessing doing the bags. Men!! I was going to get pashminas but thought its going to be HOT!

       

      So far I have sent STDs, got invites made(didnt send out yet), booked a room block, secured our date with resort, paid a deposit on a photographer, bought a dress, made luggage & maraca tags & thats it!!!!

       

      I need to get shoes, the I DO sticker(love that) ask the guys & girls to be in the wedding(thanks for the card!), get their outfits, FI outfit, book DJ, book flight, pay our room, pay for the wedding package, brochures, welcome letters, figure out OOT bags & what the heck I am gonna put in them and get a head count! Guess thats my list...ugh. I should copy this for a starter list. I am feeling overwhelmed today! 

       

      @celticgirl & canadiangirl you both have done so much!!

          As far as the EXTRA STUFF- oot bags and the extra name tags welcome books and so on...lol lol my FI is the same way...he says to me this is your thing, im not flashy like you lmao but its so true! hed be happy if him and i were in jamaica came back home and had a drinking party. So in my opinion, the OOT bags are something your fam and friends will love to have as a thank you for coming..its like their GIFT form u 2
          . I think its a nice touch! (my opinion of course) lol

          If shoes are your thing, i found a great site...PLUS they have coloured shoes woooohoooo so i will add it for you! as for the cards, NO PROB at all! if you need help with the OOT goodies I can always give you the list of things im putting in ours, if that helps lol

           

          Dont feel overwhelmed.... most ppl dont do a thing until they get to the resort, your in good shape! just breath

            How did you do a DIY luggage tag? On cardstock? Would love to know... and how are you doing your OOT bags? Like what goodies are you putting in with them... I really would love to have these, but I think they may be out of my budget.

              If you search on here you will find tons of different suggestion for luggage tags and OOTs

               

              I think anyone can do OOT bags and keep them in their budget, it is really easy to get carried away but we wont be doing favours just our OOTs so tjhat saves some budgets.  I think it's just a fun addition to the trip for your guests like Leigh said.

               

              You can get self laminating luggage tags, and many other options!!

                its all about the dollar store..i got my OOT bags from there for a 1.00 lime green and turquoise (mesh style beach bag) on the front of it i will be doing an iron on transfer with our monogram on it.

                As far as the GOODIES go, im putting in personalized cups(ebay) hand sanitizer (dollar store) citronella candle - sorry about the spelling lol (canadian tire) flip flops either (dollar store or old navy) creams, hangover kit which will include asprin, chapstick (with personalized label on it) tums, nasua meds lol and pepto. then Im doing a first aid kit which will have (personalized name tag) band aids,sewing stuff, just incase lol.room key holders with a spiral wrist band (walmart) playing cards, oh and I did a do not disturb door sign lol this is my fav thing so far hehehehe

                 

                i think thats it lol as far as the luggage tags, ive done the template for them, but iam not printing them until were back home..less to pack! but I will be printing them on cardstock paper (leftovers from the invitation inserts)

                 

                As far as we go, were not having alot of ppl maybe 20. But if you are doing more than that, what I would do is make everything personal...and do smaller OOT bags, so it looks full lol lol

                 

                OH yeah i forgot...I also did a welcome book for everyone, it was going to be a cut and paste into a small ring binder from the dollar store, but it ended up being 8 pgs so im going to go the again..dollar store and buy those transparent ones and put them in there! K now I think thats it. Alot of my stuff Ive done DIY projects, but im happy to help if you need it. I hope this helped u

                      I think we could share shoes Leigh!!!!! I might end up going for Navy shoes though, works as my "something blue" and my theme.  I like both the shoes you posted though!!! May get them for my girls, I'd love for them to do green shoes!!!!

                       

                      Can you post a picture of your mesh dollar store OOT bag when you have a chance?! I don't think I have seen them!!1
