    So, May Brides!  What are we all using for OOT bags (the bag itself).  I'm starting to keep my eyes peeled when I'm out and about.  Today I found this cute tote at Chapters.  It was the perfect size $8.50 each.  It's so cute.  Not %100 one the saying ... but it might work.  I'm trying to figure out who supplies the bag and maybe I can do an iron on instead.  Post any pictures of your bags if you have them.  I'm in Canada so it would need to be from a store/website that ships here.

        Punta Bride...$8.50 per bag is alot! Here is a picture of my welcome bags , they are pretty big and are also canvas. I got them from Vistaprint and are totally customizable. There is also a $17 for $70 worth of merchandise Groupon today for them. Thats how I purchased these and they came out to next to nothing.

        And here is the link to the Groupon:

            That bag is perfect!! and that is not expensive at all which is great. Thank you for the advice!!! Also, are you giving a bag to each person or one for the room??

            I wish I could order the bags now but I can't  because I don't know the exact amount of people who are going yet which kinda stinks. I have somewhat an idea, but not 100% positive on the exact amount. I sent out my Save the Dates in July and about to send my invitations next week..... I know of a few people outside of my family that have confirmed and already booked, but still have the people who are 50/50 right now. So, I won't know until March 15th which is the date I told everyone to let me know by.

             

            SO, I almost feel like there is not much I can do right at this point until I know the exact amount of people who are going!

             

            What are you ladies doing in regards to shoes if you are walking down the aisle on the beach? I am thinking that wearing heals is not the way to go because I dont want to be falling in the sand!! I don't mind wearing a nice sandle but for the rest of the night, I kinda wanted something more of a heal. I dont mind switching shoes however, I know that when they fit your dress for the last time, I need the shoe that I am going to be wearing....any suggestions on what you girls are doing?

             

            Have a nice weekend!!!

              I'm going down to Mexico a week before the wedding and I'm waiting to purchase my bags then from the flea market. I want some bags that say Mexico or Cancun on them...and since I'll need a lot of them I figure I can negotiate the price and get them for next to nothing. Another bride I know staying at my resort did that for her wedding in May 2012 and got some great bags for about $3 each. Here's a pic below of her bags...I liked that they were all different but had the same central theme.

                I got my canvas totes from ingreetings.com I think they where around $1.50 each or something and I paid $18 shipping to Canada for 23 bags. But you can buy these same bags at michaels. I think they sell for 3 bags for $11.99. So with a 50% off coupon 3 bags for $6 is $2 a bag! Not bad! I just used iron on transfers to customize them Posted Image

                  I love this idea!  May have to steal it.

                    I never go anywhere without at least 4" heels on, so I've thought a lot about this.  Although everyone else in the wedding will have on barefoot sandals or nothing at all, I plan to wear heeled wedges.  I am considering going with a shorter heel than I normally wear, just to safeguard against an ugly fall in the sand, as walking on a beach in any footwear is much more difficult than walking on a hard surface.  I found a pair I like on ebay, but I accidentally selected the wrong size, so waiting on the seller to respond and hopefully correct.

                     

                    This is not what I bought, but I saw these while browsing and thought, wow, these would look amazing and very bridal in white, silver, or gold.

                     

                     

                     

                    Had I found a nice pair of plain clear wedges for a good price, I would've done this by hot gluing flowers on myself, but I ended up going with something else entirely.  Will show everyone once I get the size issue straightened out and the order complete.

                      I'm giving the girls in my bridal party foot jewelry as thank you gifts at the bridal luncheon. But I found these cute flip flops for myself for the ceremony. My mom is also purchasing a different pair from the same company (not a wedge heel).

                       

                      Then I'm wearing the heels for the reception. I typically wear 4 1/2"-5" heels but I couldn't find any purple ones that were higher that I really liked and were within the amount I wanted to spend.
