    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: 

             

            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!
