    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 don’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 didn’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…

    If you want, here is the template for the rum favors. I bought the kit at Staples. It comes with the tie strings so all you have to do is slip it over the bottle!

      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 wasn’t until a few weeks before we left that I discovered all the label templates at Staples! Michael’s has a ton of things like that too.

       

      You’re going to have an amazing time and you’re getting married on my birthday so I know it’ll be perfect! J
