Aw that is so nice!!! I love helping the brides I feel like I actually KNOW on the forums!!! I am glad to hear you like so much of my stuff!!! I can't really share it with anyone else so I get nervous sometimes that it wont go over so well come february!

I can't wait to see what else you do so I can get more ideas.  Oh and another thought since you are so creative you could totally sell a whole little template package on esty or something.... I'm sure there are lots of other brides that lack in the creativity side such as myself.
 



 



 

Hey Tam, are you on the Canadian OOT thread?  We've talked about this before on there but I couldn't remember if you made it over there too!!!!  I will be doing 1 bag for every couple and 1 bag for every single this way we cut some costs doing the couple bags but those singles don't feel left out.  I think it would be strange to have 2 people sharing a room share a bag, how do they divide it? Who takes the bag home etc.  This way it is easy for everyone.  

 

I posted a list of what I am including and what is doubled up etc for the couple bags

 

For example the couple bags have double of the following items compared to the single bags:

 

- chapstick

- shout wipes

- face cloths

- mugs

- gatorade

- pepto

 

But all bags have

 

- 1 sanitizer

- 1 sewing kit

- 1 nail file (except the single guy bags)

- 1 advil 10 ct

- 1 tin of altoids

- 1 shell soap

- 1 roll of tums

 

You get the idea!  Hope this helps :)

To cut cost I am giving one bag per couple but not to sure what to do? I am leaning towards individual bags for them but would like to know what everyone else is doing/thoughts?

I am giving one bag per couple, and then one bag for each single... even if they are sharing room, if they came without a partner, I didnt want to make them share...  but that was just my way of thinking =) go with your budget! i have 65 people, and 37 bags!!

i have the same situation with a couple of my friends, what im doing because their not "a couple" lol is they will get their own bags. if it was a husband and wife i would think about giving them one bag to share....and so on

 

however, im only expecting 30 ish ppl so i will be giving everyone a bag (I THINK LOL)

Tori,

 

I am on the Canadian oot and I thought I remembered seeing it but forgot where oops! Anyways thanks for your thought I was thinking along the lines of what your doing just wanted some input. I think I will give them each a bag, your right how would they divide it and I wouldn't want them to have too! Thanks for you thoughts!

Thanks for your input! I am going to do the same, like I said to Tori the more I think about it I don't want to have to make them share with someone who isn't their partner!

Thanks for the input ladies! I have made up my mind 1 bag for couples and 1 for singles even if they are dharing a room! I was leaning towards this but it is always nice to see what others are doing!

No problem!!!! That is what we are hear for.  I find myself wanting to come ask you guys questions daily even on un-wedding related topics!!!! 

 

FIs new line is "why don't you ask your forum friends" or "what do your cyber friends say" LOL  I think he likes that he doesn't have to answer EVERY question!!!!

 

 

I will be working on some DIYs today as it is yucky and rainy here!!! Will keep all my fellow canucks posted :)

I'm doing the same thing, Tam! It's a good decision I think.
 

 

Speaking of friends sharing rooms, are you guys finding that you have to do a lot of matching up? We have some friends that are single going and trying to hook them up with people to stay with. Some of them don;'t know each other, so we are trying to base it on similar personalities/interests. I hope this works out!~

So far we haven;t needed to.  On FIs family side there are a few singles but they paired themselves up so we didn't have to get involved which was GREAT!!! The only single on my side right now is my sister who is still waiting to see if her boyfriend will be coming.  I don't know what to do if he doesn't as I don't know who we would pair her with AND I don't think she wants to spend the $400 extra dollars for a single room.....
