      Hey girls! Are any of you doing welcome bags for your guests? If so what are you putting in them? My friend went to a wedding in mexico and she has stuff like imodium, viramin c, candy bars, maps and water bottles....is putting imodium in your welcome bags a little odd? I feel thay way but maybe that's just me...

        Kaitlyn,

        I ordered some things for my welcome bags already because I needed to burn some FSA money before it expires in the new year. I got mini sunscreen bottles, chap sticks and mini first aid kits. The first aid kits are a little weird I guess, but I put way too much in FSA account this year so I figured what the heck... it's a good thing to keep in your suitcase anyway! I plan to add apsirin and tums or something like that.Vitamin C is a great idea and you can get a huge pack of Emergen-C at costco/sams. I think hangover cures are pretty common in welcome bags and I admit to having used them before after weddings! My welcome bags are starting to sound like a mini pharmacy...

         

        I am also going to make little weekend programs with ideas for things to do and any scheduled events, and a little door hanger "Do not disturb... I partied all night at __&__'s wedding". Lastly, we are going to run through the market when we arrive and see what other little goodies we can find for the bags. Maybe some cheap souveniers or something.

         

         

         

         

        What are yall doing for escort/place cards? I saw a few cute ideas online: mini drink umbrellas iwth tags tied to them, or maracas also with tags, or with a name in sharpie.

         

        Anyone else going for the buffet? My WC said you actuallly get some of each item on the list for the buffet menus. My family loves to eat so I definitely want as much food as possible... It's $40 per person, only $10 more than the 3 course meal and you get way more food options. The risk is do you get a lot more food, or just a tiny bit of each choice? Did I mention we are a big food family? :)

          Thank you so much for the welcome bag tips. The mini umbrella idea sounds SO cute!! I'm going to go with the plated menu only because my eeception hasbto ends sooo early. We will all probably go out after anyway.

            Hey girls! Is anyone using an outside vendor for flowers? I think the prices at the resort are insane and I'm trying to find a florist....... Thanks! =)

              Hey ncalvar, We are using Marvin for flowers. I think you get much more for your money with him! I've read good reviews too. :D

                hey girls!! I dont think there's anything wrong w/ giving immodium in the gift bags! Your guests might actually be grateful if their tummies don't like some of the food!! haha....my gift bags include advil, benadryl, pepto, chapsticks, first aid kits, playing cards, word searches, headphones, flip flops and snacks :) Also asked the resort if they can provide us w/ water bottles to add to the bags, im sure that will b extra as well smh

                 

                NCalvar I actually asked my WC Diana to price out some of the centerpieces I sent her that i would be interested in and the florist there quoted from 40 to 80 which I dont think is bad price, although what we want is really simple. Vases w/ candles floating and surrounding candles. Hope this helps!!

                  Catfish, I think your the only lucky one in the floral department....I have been getting outrageous quotes from them. Is it really cheaper to go outside the resort for flowers since they will charge a vendor fee?

                    For orders over 1,500 he will take 15% off to help with the outside vendor fee. We are using him for brides bouquet, bridesmaids bouquet, bouts, centerpieces, and ceremony decor to get to the $1500. He said if you just use him for bouquets and bouts he can drop them off with someone in the lobby and you don't have to pay the vendors fee, but he needs to set up centerpieces so you need to pay the fee if you order those.

                      Kaitlyn I think it's bc all i'm asking for is vases with candles in them lol I wont have any flowers in my centerpieces. If we were having it in the states think we could get each centerpiece done for $20 or less :-/ but we couldnt carry the vases in since we're carrying so much already 4 wedding itself. def try going 4 outside vendor like Emily suggested. Or even ask resort how much they'd charge 4 just the vases and see where you can obtain flowers outside...
