Grr!!! I hate that it takes so many posts to be able to download files! I'm loving being able to see everyone's bags, they are so inspirational! (and a kick in my butt to get going!!) wink.gif

Love all the hints and your branding of your wedding! Sounds weird, but I really kinda like having a wedding brand with logo, tagline, etc.

Hi ladies!!!  I think I finally finished my OOT bags!!  I attached a ton of pictures.  My bag is in the back, a little hard to see lol.  I LOVED using VistaPrint to help me fill my bag.  I got TONS of freebies, thanks to the advice of several other brides on here.  In most cases, the only cost was shipping.  And here's a trick I learned from another bride (anudrum)... If you have to make multiple orders to get several freebies, you can select "slow shipping" for every order, but if you pick the fast shipping for one order, all orders will ship with the fast shipping!  It wasn't an issue for me since I still have til April for my wedding.  But one order, the fast shipping was only $0.20 more than slow, so I tried it out, and sure enough I got my two slow orders with the fast order!  Also, for VistaPrint, the trick to get the really good deal emails is to create something on their website, but only add it to your portfolio, don't checkout.  Usually within a few days I always got an email offering me 30-50% off, plus a list of freebies!  If you start early, you can keep getting one or two freebies of each item on every order.  Also, pay attention to GroupOn - I got a $60 voucher for $15 at VistaPrint!!!  Ok that's enough advertising for VistaPrint lol.  Here's what I have included in each bag: -Harriton Tote Bag...($4.66/each shirtsinbulk.com, free shipping, 5% off coupon code on retailmenot.com) -2 Tshirts...($4.74/each on VistaPrint) -Labels tied to Tshirts....($2.99/24 labels) -2 Bottles of Water....($0.17 each, $4/case of 24) -Wedding Survival Kit....($3.87/bag - breakdown below) -First Aid Kit...($0.22/each with coupons at Walmart, labels FREE at VistaPrint)) -Notepad & Pen Set....(VistaPrint - got free pen & notepad on each order) -Flip Flop Luggage Tag...($2.08/each - $24.99/12pack at Target.com) -Crossword Book...($0.97/each at Walmart) -Magnet...(FREE at VistaPrint - only paid shipping) -Flip Flop Keychain, comes in multiple colors...($0.28/each - $3.39/12pack on eBay) -Business Card Bag Tag, under keychain...(FREE at VistaPrint, only paid shipping) -Welcome Letter...(FREE at VistaPrint - only paid shipping) -Postcard w/ picture info....(FREE at VistaPrint - only paid shipping) Without including the shipping costs at VistaPrint, each bag ends up being just over $21.  I'm only making 11 OOT bags, as I'm having a small guest list, so I was definitely happy with that! Total Bag.JPG Closeup 1.JPG Closeup 2.JPG Closeup 3.JPG Closeup 4.JPG Here's some individuals of what I have included!  First is the bag (probably going to use tissue paper to fill it in): ToteBagDoor.JPG Here's the Tshirts: Tshirts.JPG Next, is my Wedding Survival Kit (template for the topper is at the bottom of this post!!): Survival Kit Finished FRONT.JPG Survival Kit Finished BACK.JPG Survival Kit Topper.JPG What I included in the Survival Kit: -Pack of tissues....(4pack for $1.00 at Target) -Hand Sanitizer....($0.33/each at BigLots) -Shout wipes....(12pack for $2.89 at Target) -WetOnes wipes....(10pack for $1.00 at BigLots) -Chapstick....(2pack for $0.88 at Walmart) -Small pack of gum....(4pack for $1.00 at BigLots) -Roll of Tums....(3pack for $1.92 at Walmart) -Blister Pack of Advil....(3pack for $1.00 at Dollar Tree) -Blister Pack of Tylenol....(3pack for $1.00 at Dollar Tree) -4 Crystal Light single use....(44pack for $5.00 at BigLots) -A few lifesavers ($1.25/bag at Target = $0.03/piece) -A few coughdrops ($0.88/bag at Walmart = $0.02/piece) *****Total Cost of Survival Kit: $3.87/bag***** Next is the luggage tag, keychain, first aid kit: Bag Tag & Keychain.JPG IMG_0504.JPG IMG_0503.JPG *Important info for getting the First Aid Kits so cheap!!  They are $0.97/each at Walmart, but with coupons, you can get them for $0.22/each!  Total thanks to asiamarie1 for giving me this awesome info.  Here's what you need to do to get the price:  Go to the jnjredcross.com site. Then click on special offers. It will take you to the page that shows to coupons. Print the one for 1.50 of 2 johnson and johnson products.The picture doesn't show the first aid kits but you can use the coupon on them. Remember that it will only allow you to print the coupon 2x per computer. So i just had friends and family print me coupons so I could buy enough. Some of my VistaPrint Goodies: Picture Postcard Front edited.jpg Picture Postcard Back.JPG Pen & Notepad Set.JPG Magnet.JPG I'm so excited they are finally done.  I have the paper for the welcome letter, that we haven't actually printed yet.  Haven't decided exactly what we're putting on it yet, but we have a little time to figure that out.  I want to share the template for the survival kit topper for those of you that may want it as well!!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
