Does anyone know where to find bags like this in Canada?  I want to put my mugs in this to give out at xmas, rather than paying for real xmas bags at 50 cents a piece:

ahhhhhhhh so much going on in my head right now hahaha

We are doing a donation to a charity that is in Negril. The charity was created for school children by the Rockhouse Resort , where we are going for our honeymoon. They actually have a day that the resort guests go to the school so along with the donation we are encoraging our guests to bring school supplies for them. I have a hang tag on a starfish saying this, which they can take with them.

Thanks for the Bag suggestions!

 

I tried making my own flower centerpieces like the ones I posted here: 467097

 

I'm not in love with them, but I think i'll keep working on it. haven't found the right vase yet, but I kind of like the idea of just putting it in a cup like in my last picture. plus it would save me from having to carry down vases [although the first vase is plastic and extremely light].

 

If I do a glass then the centerpieces come to about 25 cents each lol. Do they look that cheap?

Looks good. I like the first vase the best. You could add sand, beads or crystals into the vase - Btw, Ikea sells sand for $1.77 ea and so does the Buck or Two store if you have that where you are. Another thing you could do is get that pearl like beading (in silver) that goes on xmas trees and sort of drape around the flowers and let it hang down. OR you could get those lighted stick branches and put a couple in each. You could even add another pink flower to it.

Yea I was thinking of adding sand to the bottom [just from the beach though hehe], and maybe adding a starfish to the flowers or some glitter. Thanks for the suggestions!

In terms of the OOT/favour debate, we are being extremely generous (I think, anyway!) with our OOT bags, which we are giving out at the airport (so people can look at them during our overnight stopover/on the plane, and to save on packing real estate), so I think we will be using those just as favours. Each couple (or maybe person...) will get a bag (vistaprint), bubba keg, digital video camera, welcome information packet (which includes activity pages and is going to be placed in those small photo albums from the dollar store, so they can use the albums for pictures after), mini survival kit (SPF lip balm, aloe, conditioner maybe [since I do not think the resort has any in the bathrooms], etc.) and vistaprint items: keychain, pen, hat, notepad.

 

I really do not think that we will do favours other than that. We are having bubbles at the wedding that guests can keep, and just paper fan programs, also the place cards are personalized shells, which people can keep of course.

 

We have a small group coming (about 15 we think) so I wanted to be generous. But I am still on a budget!

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
