      We sent out our save the dates about a year in advance to around 200 people and asked them for a tentative RSVP. We sent a letter using neon paper from Staples, neon envelopes from Staples, customized stamps with our logo from Zazzle.com, a tentative RSVP postcard which we got free from Vistaprint, tropical confetti from Party City, and a save the date magnet. For the magnet, I had a graphic designer use a picture of us laying on the beach from a previous trip and add it into a different background which only cost about $30.

        Here are our logos. The first one is from Rebecca from Allurements by Rebecca on Etsy. I highly recommend her! The second one is just a simple one we used for the save the dates.

          Here is what I will be giving my bridesmaids before the wedding. I am also going to get them each a nice keepsake gift as well so I'm still trying to think of something! I will probably also get the same t-shirts for our parents to wear on the plane ride down!

              I designed this door hanger on Vistaprint then just ordered the oversized post cards and they are the perfect size! I will just cut a hole out or add ribbon so it can hang.

                Here is my first personalization project for my OOT bags! I bought tropical flavored chapstick from the Dollar Tree (2 for $1.00) and removed the labels. I then used Avery return address labels and printed my logo on them, then added SPF 15 at the top. I decided I needed a Red Stripe during this project as you will see in one of the pics lol.
