Lauren, wonderful thread! Now you got me thinking about the rum as favors! But I really like the qoute you used on the tag you had put on the bottles. I remember Krista had the issue where they were charging extra per guest; thankfully that was resolved. Did you have the same trouble?

Thanks!The rum favors were a huge hit! Just some advice, they are located in Montego Bay and they donâ€t deliver to Ocho Rios. I had someone meet me at the airport upon arrival. Because it was a Saturday, I felt compelled to give the driver a big tip for his troubles! J

 

The Bob Marley quote was a few different things I pulled together but it was so appropriate. Feel free to use whatever you like!

 

I actually paid for the extra guests but they didnâ€t charge me for using an offsite florist and they gave us free breakfast in bed so I think it worked out in the end…

That's great the didn't charge the vendors fee, where ever you can save a penny is always good! Thanks for sharing your template for the tags! I was actually thinking of purchasing thank you tags from Etsy but this is more personal, which I'm sure your guests appreciated! I'm so glad the day was wonderful...getting a little more excited as mine will be here in no time!

To be honest I actually forgot about the per person charge until I was actually paying for everything else and decided not to make a big deal about it since they had done a few favors for me anyways.

 

Oh, I never even looked on Etsy but I'm sure they have some great things too. Originally I was going to do a sticker label that went directly on the bottles but I figured that might be hard especially with the humidity. It wasnâ€t until a few weeks before we left that I discovered all the label templates at Staples! Michaelâ€s has a ton of things like that too.

 

Youâ€re going to have an amazing time and youâ€re getting married on my birthday so I know itâ€ll be perfect! J
