@@gannonham - I'm going to have to check out Dollarama when I get around to think about OOT bags! I've been looking at some of the US companies, but shipping is crazy. Luckily I'm not too far from the border -  I will prob ship a lot of things to Buffalo and just drive down to pick them up!

@gannonham  those tumblers are so cute! I'll have to check out the Dollarama next time I'm in the city! It's so hard to find stuff like that for less than $10

For any of you Canadian brides who are looking to do OOT bags, Dollarama has quite a few plastic tumblers that are really nice and only $2 each.  We chose mason jar looking ones with handles (kind of like a mug) that normally retail for $8 - $12 each.  We are planning on giving these as part of our welcome bags, which will also have an itinerary, door hanger, a hangover kit, and a couple of other things we are still deciding on.  They have a number of designs for regular tumblers, but the mason jar mugs either have blue screw on lids and straws or pink ones.  We're hoping people use these for the pool bar or their beach drinks.  However, this is also something I think/hope they will bring home and use.  And every time they do, hopefully they will enjoy sipping that drink and reminiscing about their trip  :)

 

Here's an idea of what a similar mug looks like (the ones we got have a translucent lid and no writing, just a mason jar like design):

If anyone specifically wants the Aladdin Mason jar tumblers, I saw them being sold in the US Costco (Washington and Oregon) last month. They came in 3 per pack and comes up to about $7USD each.

Wow - that's a great price! We just picked up 2 of those for camping at Walmart in PA and they were almost $4 each! I'm still trying to decide what I'm going to do for bags. Need to wait and see how many peeps we get, but I probably won't need more than 6 or 8. In the meantime, we're going to try these out this summer. I think they're a great size especially since the bars in Mexico all use the little tiny plastic cups and you need to keep going back to the bar every 5 minutes for refills!!!!

Did anyone purchase fake flowers here in Canada or found a good website with reasonable shipping costs?

I ordered from Bloom Bridal! She's located in Toronto and will ship anywhere. They're not cheap, but it is cheaper than buying them there. And they're gorgeous and won't wilt, and I'll have a keepsake afterwards

 

I got my bouquet, bridesmaid bouquets, boutonnieres for groom and groomsman, and corsages and boutonnieres for the parents. And some hair flowers for myself

The Bubba tumblers are on sale at Canadian tire this week! i have an alert set and I got an email about it the other day. I'm not buying them because they're still too expensive for how many guests we'll have, but if you only need 6-8 you might want to look into them? I think the quality of the bubbas are one of the best

    • 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?
