FRUGAL BRIDES - FOUND A NEW WEBSITE

Recommended Posts

In a effort to be as frugal as possible I have been doing a lot of research for my OOT bags. I got the dollar tree bags (after going to 5 different stores, between 20 -40 mins out) but worth it. I'm trying to find a website where I can fill my OOT bags and have the cost including contents equal about 6 dollars each (not so easy). 

 

While doing the kids OOT bags I found this website, and it has penny items. You can get things in bulk or in any quantity you like, which to me is a little better then Oriental trading because I don't have that many kids attending. The site doesn't look all that but they do accept paypal and to me that is always a plus... 

 

I placed a order and will post an update once I receive it. A lot of the items you can find on OT but it seems you don't have to buy them by 12.

This looks great for sunglasses. We are getting Married at sunset and unfortunately my guest will be looking into the sun.....We are having a table right by the ceremony area with a sign that will read...."Don't be blinded by our love" Cheesy, I know. But they the glasses would be a great item for the OOT bags as well.

I guess I will post all my find on this thread... 

 

Here is another thing that I found back in January when I was looking for gifts for a ladies night I host once a month... All the woman LOOOOVVVEEED them. They were sample packs, but they contain a lot in one pack. They smell SOOOOO good, I could smell them through the box in which they came in. You get 4 for 2.98 (about .74 cents each). When I ordered them in January they were only $1.00 for 4 but I guess they got popular. I feel they are still worth the $2.98, and you can use them to stuff in your bridesmaids bags or you can use them for your OOT bag.

OOT bags items.... less then a dollar.

This website is the bizness.... everything you want for the OOT bags such as "survival kits" etc can be bought here. If you don't care about name brand items then your talking about 12 cents to 40 cents. good luck!

Things like pepto, advil,  Alka-Seltzer, etc seem to be cheaper on Amazon bought in bulk. It would depend on how many guest you plan to have. Small parties will be cheaper on http://www.minimus.biz/, large parties up to 100 would be cheaper on amazon with the items listed above.

    • Congratulations to Wedding Planners and Families of Bride and Groom. Cheapfaremart, an Orlando based Online Travel Agency offers Cheap Group Flights for Wedding Group also.
    • Thanks! I would love to get quotes from a TA but as I said I have a hard time finding a specialized one in Canada. I hope someone can point me to the right direction. 
    • The use of TA is instrumental in booking a destination wedding for several reasons: Namely, TAs have special rates and promos they can offer you, including perks of complimentary rooms and upgrades. Wright Travel actually has a Bride & Groom Fly Free Promo, which gives couples up to $1,000 cash back. These are perks you can take advantage of by working with a TA. Also, most agencies also do not charge any service fee, so you are essentially having the expertise and convenience of a travel agent without paying a dime. Experienced agents will also have valuable insight into the best property to host your wedding, and if they are familiar with your resort, they can also offer you and your guests tips on how to make your stay even better. Good TAs will also have close connections wiht the wedding department, essentially benefiting you throughout the planning process. Securing a room block is also important to ensure your resort does not run out of rooms and also to secure a group rate. Lastly, having a travel agent handle you and your guests travel plans is vital so that you don't have to deal with it. Anything can happen when it comes to travel and if you don't have an agent, your guests will turn to you for help. As a former destination wedding bride, I did not work with a TA and I regretted it. Having to answer a million questions from guests on where to stay, where to book, where to go, drove me nuts. When it comes down to the final stretch of the wedding, it was the last thing I wanted to do when I already had a million things on my plate wedding wise.  Here's a more in depth article regarding the benefits of using a TA.  https://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/wedding-tips/c/planning/10-reasons-why-you-should-use-wright-travel-agency-for-your-destination-wedding-r2439/  
    • We actually did our legal wedding at home -- a quick and easy ceremony at the local courthouse about a week before our destination wedding. Afterwards, we just went to lunch and shared a few celebratory cocktails 😊We did this so we didn't have to deal with the legal requirements (arriving early, blood test, etc.) you must abide by in Mexico. For us it worked out perfectly and our ceremony in Mexico was our official wedding with all our family and friends. 
    • Hi there, So I read a lot of you recommended to go through a TA rather than booking things yourself so I tried to reach out but haven't really been successful. I wrote to Wright Travel not realizing that they were only serving the US. So all I really need is actually the booking of the hotel and the wedding arrangements. Most of our guests will stay at that hotel but I know some of them will probably look for other options. Our guests will arrange their own flights as they are coming from different countries (Canada and Europe) and I don't see group flights coming together as they will all stay different length of time. So my questions are, why exactly would I need a travel agency to book the hotel and the wedding? I worked in event management for years and have organised events way bigger than that and could probably organise it myself. If we decide to go with a TA, does anyone have any recommendation for a Canadian TA? Thanks all!
