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 endâ€¦

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!

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
