I get my vistaprint deals from Groupon. I was able to do my invites, hotel accommodations (on rack cards), travel information ( on rack cards), and rsvps. They are having a free shipping sale so I want to do:

Print share cards to put in the welcome bags ( off of business cards)

Brochure ( to send out later about excursions)

Itinerary ( for welcome bags)

Thank you cards

 

I thought about door hangers but they are not necessary. I also thought to just send a passport to everyone a month before hand to those who have paid with all the excursions, itinerary, information about customs etc. I haven't decided on it yet though.

So here's a funny for ya'll . I've been sitting at the hotel all day waiting to go to work and I realized that

 

A. They put little burlap bags in the room for their coffee. It's the ones with the drawstrings that I want for my favors

 

B. they put little packets in the room with a nail file . Cotton balls , ear cleaners , mouthwash and a little sewing kit etc.

 

I'm like.... Omg I'm gonna ask the cleaning lady to give me more and if I do that on every layover for the next year ill have enough stuff for my OOT bags . Lmao. Hahahahaha

 

I swear I'm gonna write a book on saving a buck. Lol

I was going to give them each a clutch which will be in my wedding colors, I'm waiting on the swatch samples to come in

and in each clutch I was going to put a pair of earrings:

What do you all think?  I will probably also add necklaces into the clutches but haven't found any I love yet...

I think they are gorgeous!

I am catching up on everything ladies. I have a few questions. I already did my will you be my bridesmaids luggage boxes. I am paying for the BMs and GMs attire. Should I pay for the accessories too? Or is that something they can pay for themselves?

 

Next question/ Statement: I DID NOT know that bed, bath and beyond allows you to use expired coupons!!!! I think I might get my travel stuff for the welcome bags from there. Was anybody else aware of this?

 

Lastly: There are a lot of sales on theknot.com, exclusive weddings, etc.  For my gifts to my bridesmaids, I want to do silk robes, a cosmetic bag, and a nice tote bag. What are your suggestions for gifts?

These are the welcome tag that will be attaching to the welcome bags. On the back side of the card is a great idea from another bride on BDW

Lol..I can't remember the last time I've used an UNEXPIRED coupon! I like the idea for robes. I'm planning to get some of bridesmaids' gifts, such as robes and handkerchiefs, from the vintage store, rather than from the knot or a wedding place. Many times you can get things cheaper and of higher quality by not buying things from wedding-only stores. There are definitely exceptions though. Have you tried the website 'Light in the Box'? They have amazing prices on wedding things, including veils and gifts for your wedding party. http://www.lightinthebox.com/Popular/Personalized_Gifts_Bridesmaid_Gifts.html

Simple welcome bag, didnâ€t want to personalize them, in hope that our guest will use them again when they return to the states.
