Custom Hats is cute... what were you thinking of doing to make them custom..  your wedding logo or the name of your destination or something specific to each guy?


If you can find a christmas tree shop flyer I saw they have a coupon for $5 a purchase

    Welcome bags are the one thing I keep wavering on. I really want to do them, I just don't want to lug the stuff with me. I was thinking of doing something simple like a tumbler with a letter in it and some hangover essentials/candy stuffed in it.

     

    What I originally wanted to do was a beach bag, tumbler, hangover kit, snacks and a beach towel but then I realized there is no way I'm getting all that down especially when b/w my wedding and honeymoon I need to bring 3 weeks worth of clothes. I thought about having my family pack some stuff, they don't live that close but I thought maybe I could give them the stuff at Christmas.

     

    I've also thought about having a dinner party/get to know the wedding guests get together before we go to thank everyone and give them their gifts then. I know not everyone will be able to make it but then I'd be bringing less with me.

    We have decided we don't want to lug that stuff to Mexico either and have decided to deliver the bags to guests a week or so before we leave. We are going to include luggage tags that I am making, a couple bottles of Corona, along with all the normal OOT stuff. We'll include a packing list and letter. I hope this gets our friends excited for the trip!

      Good Luck on finishing girl!

      I might just have to buy them from the store :( I can't find them online to save my life!

        I found this info, hope it helps:

         

        Dominican ’mos swear by La Rapidita, a calcium carbonate, acetaminophen, Vitamin B-1 and caffeine combo pill available in most bodegas. It’s produced in Long Island and usually sells for around a dollar, which makes it a cost-effective way to relieve some of your mild hangover symptoms.

            I wanted to update you girls.

            I have chosen the bridesmaids dresses!

            https://www.etsy.com...hop_home_active

            Except the girls will be in the maxi dress version of this.

            and my sister, the MOH will be in the gray dress... here's the color

I have NO idea how I am going to pack for two weeks AND bring all this stuff without bringing waaaaay too many bags.  My FI is going to kill me for sure!!  The only thing I keep telling myself to make it all okay (which I know is a lie haha) is that I am going somewhere warm and tropical - I wont need a lot of clothes cause I'll be in bathing suits and cover ups the whole time.... right?  hehehe 

               

              I really want to meet everyone in the lobby as they arrive.. but I don't want to not be able to do stuff cause I have to sit in the lobby too much.  So I am hoping everyone (at least for the most part) will come on the same day... I don't mind blocking one day out .. I figured I can hang out at the pool closes to the lobby and just go to the lobby around the time that each couple will be showing up.

               

              You could do something really cute with tumblers.  If you do the individual packs of stuff like aspirin and pepto you could easily put a few in each inside the tumbler with a letter and other small stuff. Cute and Compact - I like it!!

               

              I thought about towels but I know the resort provides them and I am sure they are nicer then ones I could find at a price I would be willing to pay - so that is one thing I am not adding!

               

              I think it is a good idea to have people pack stuff for you, if they don't mind.  I would do this but I want to keep things a surprise so I will just have to figure it out on my own : (

               

              The dinner party is a good idea too.

               

              How many tumblers would you need?   I really like these but you have to buy them by the case (24) I would want to do both colors but that would be more then twice as many as I need.

              http://www.dollartre...o?method=search

               

              I don't know if you can return stuff to the store that you bought online?  Or if you wanted to do a group buy - we certainly live close enough : )

               

              I actually really like these - They are cute and would take up way less space

              http://www.orientalt..._1601-18-0.fltr

              again it is way more then I need but I guess for the price I don't care.

               

              The coozies are so cute!  We definitely do live close enough to do a group buy. I'm guessing I need between 48-52, but I want mine clear.  I'm going to put waterproof labels on them that I found on Etsy. 

               

              I want the majority to be surprised which is why I'd just have my Mom and Sister pack stuff for me, they won't be surprised by anything because they're helping me with everything all ready. I'm getting them each separate gifts they'll be surprised with anyway :)

                I am doing boarding pass invites. It took me a while to decide between boarding passes and pass ports but I went with the boarding pass because the one I chose is tropical themed and went better with my STD.  I am working with the company on the proof now!

                  Those are super cute!  I picked mine a few weeks ago, my bridesmaids have until 7/31 to order them so I've stalking them ever since haha.  Once they're ordered it's one less thing for me to worry about!!

                   

                  These are mine, in petal pink, I'll have 3 girls in each.
