I ordered Chair sashes from Tableclothsfactory.com
I was particularly happy with the Chair sashes, they are an amazing price and really perfect. I ordered the Organza red ones.
The fans are 'sufficient', but super light, all different sizes and a little different shapes, and probably won't last too long. At least they are light to bring into Jamaica in the suitcase. Considering the price, I would probably do it again.
I ordered sky lanterns from ebay, but I'm a little concerned about starting a fire, so im going to test one out here first hehe. Also not sure how 100 guests will light them, since I can't bring lighters or matches on the plane (even in checked luggage!)...
I ordered individually wrapped tylenols and emergen-c's for the guests from Ebay.
I am going to order custom travel mugs from Factory 21 on Ebay. FYI, they expect customs to Canada to come to $60 on top of their prices posted. (for the 100 mug lot)
We were going to do just 'survival kit' welcome bags, but I think we will do the mugs instead, and inside just put some little things (tylenol and Emergen-C's that we had already bought, and maybe some condoms as a joke).
We made some custom T-Shirts on Vista print, to give as prizes to our guests... ex 'sun burn award', 'party animal award' etc. We also made lawn signs to put in the sand by the wedding, saying 'wedding in progress, please be respectful'. Im a little worried about men in speedos in the wedding pictures hehe. I think we will get post cards from Vista print too.
Im still on the hunt for white star fish. Someone mentioned that the Winners in AB has some, so ill be checking around there.
I know I ordered more but can't think of what right now...
I got part of my bridesmaids gifts from CrossIron Mills shopping outlet right outside Calgary. I got them Coach Beach Towels, came to $40 each and they are sooo nice!
I love that place!
um wow! can you plan my wedding please?? haha
Youeway ahead of me and I'm only getting married 10 days later haha...you have got me motivated!
I found really pretty silk white fans at Michaels, 18 for $15 i believe! one of my bridesmaids is going to personalize them for me. they fold up, so super easy to put in a suit case!
I was looking for a personalized tumbler for our guests, but they are expensive! So i also was looking at the factory21 travel mugs! not sure what we are going with yet.
One cool thing we bought recently was the centerpieces...they are from pier one. Match our theme perfectly and were cheap. The resort was going to charge $150 per centerpiece, so all said and done ours will be $40 ish each. Just going to be an issue getting them to Jamaica. lol they are big candles and bulky!
Last year I found some white starfish at Dollarama , and of course when I need them they are no where to be found! But they said they may still get them in! I will keep you posted if I see any.
I'm going to look into tshirts too, might try to make them myself...not sure yet!!
So much to think about! Thanks for sharing your progress! Its amazing!
