      I was out pricing things for my "Hangover kits" and had a great money saver idea!

       

      If you fill up your gas at an Superstore (Extra foods) gas bar it always prints off a coupon for money off for in store purchases. So I am making a point for my fiance and I and sister to fill up our tanks at their gas Bar and save up the coupons to use towards the hangover kits and any extra supplies like sunscreen etc that we may need.

       

      The coupons do expire so just keep an eye on them. i thought this would be a great way to save some money and thoguht I'd share :)

        Great idea! I am just starting to shop around for my OOT bags now. I want tote bags, insulated travel mugs, keycard/tip money holders, and then some hangover/necessity kits. I am hoping that I can find some affordable options, especially with shipping to Canada!

                  I could have sworn i saw a reference to Michaels a few posts ago and I wanted to add to it...  Anyhow, Michael's always does the 40% coupon, but this week it's 50% for anyone interested.  I'm not super computery to add a link, so if you go to the website it is on the homepage, just click and print.  I got the cute "BRIDE" rhinestone tank top ($24.99- ridiculous)  for .$12.49.

                   

                  Also, they have just remerchandised the wedding section (2 aisles!) and there is some really cute stuff.  Luggage tags in silver faux leather, 10 count for $24.99, then the coupon its $12 and they are cute!  Of course they only allow one coupon per transaction, so I was in and out a lot...  :)  OH!  and ribbon- 2 for $8.

                    Hi Krysta...Jack Johnson is definitely a good choice like the other ladies have suggested. I am biased though since i walked down the aisle to one of his songs :) I used the hawaiin version of better together because it felt tropical and better together is mine and hubbies song :)

                     



                    so i am trying to figure out music choices for the wedding ceremony.... i dont want to plan every minute of the ceremony since it just means things will go wrong.... but i want to use marry me by train for the processional but does anyone have a great song for the recessional? i would love something up beat..... but not sure what would be good.... any suggestions?

                     

                     



                     


                    That's very exciting. congrats on booking a date...now the planning REALLY begins ;)

                      I bought my keycard holders off of ebay , I purchased the landyards from the same guy as well, and it was pretty affordable.

                       

                      I did later find some at Staples and Walmart ( but I still received a better deal on ebay) but if you do not have alot of guests going down then maybe to avoid shipping, check them out.

                       

                      I bought wrist straps to go on the key card holders today at Walmart I bought a 6pk for 1.98 (2 pink, 2 blue, 1 brown 1 green in the pack) which I found very affordable.

                       

                      I purchased my mugs from factory21.com and my shot glasses. They were very affordable as well, but they always get you with that darn border fee that I had no idea existed haha.

                       

                      I attached a couple of pictures!

                       



                      Great idea! I am just starting to shop around for my OOT bags now. I want tote bags, insulated travel mugs, keycard/tip money holders, and then some hangover/necessity kits. I am hoping that I can find some affordable options, especially with shipping to Canada!
