MJKH - Wedding week survival bags are done!!! Lots of pics : )

Recommended Posts

Thanks ladies for all of your feedback!  


Here are today's projects using the leftovers from the welcome bags and a bagful of freebies/samples I had in the closet.  Our ceremony/reception area is in a private/more remote area of the resort that is accessed by carts driven by resort staff.  Therefore, it's not the easiest thing to do to run back to your room if you have a bit of an emergency.  These baskets will go into the mens' and ladies' rooms (between the two baskets we should have most issues covered!):








I've shrink-wrapped and labelled the mens basket...the ladies basket needs a few more things like bobby pins, hair elastics...I'm not ready to close that one up yet!


This is our bag we'll take out on group excursions.  It includes pain relievers and other over-the-counter meds, sunscreen, bug spray, first aid kit, tampons and liners, hand sanitizer, kleenex, wipes, a deck of cards, a sewing kit, breath mints and gum.

Thanks...part of me will be so relieved when it's all over and the other part will be so disappointed as it's been a lot of fun! : )


I asked my FI last night, "What are we going to do with all of our time once the wedding is over?"...he replied "We didn't have any trouble finding things to do before, I'm sure we won't after!"


Here's a list of everything in the reception toiletry baskets:

  • gum, mints
  • mouthwash, dental floss and picks
  • lint roller, static guard, sewing kit with extra safety pins, stain removal pens/wipes
  • tampons and liners
  • eyeglass wipes
  • deodorant, hand lotion, sunscreen, bug spray
  • tissues, hand wipes, isogel
  • hair spray, bobby pins, hair elastics
  • first aid kit, pain relievers and other over the counter medications
  • nail file/clipper 
  • small mirror
  • blotting papers
  • lip balms


Any other ideas for items in the ladies' basket?


We'll put a little card next to each basket saying something like "We've got you covered!  Please help yourselves..."

I just thought of something else!  I'm going to pick up a couple of small pairs of scissors as well...especially as most of us want to remove our wrist bands for the wedding day.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
