Only 5 couples and everyone else is single. I wasn't sure if i should request one room per single person or ask my friends if 2 girls and 2 guys want to share a room?

I blocked the rooms for 6 days, our wedding is Monday June 16th and I blocked the rooms from Friday June 13th to Wednesday June 18th. I blocked 10 rooms in total, had to put down $100 per room and it was applied to our room fee. Every 6th room booked we receive a "free room" so basically we get the money. Which works well for me! lol. We are expecting 30-40 guests.

    Here is the packaging for my STDs The note that I included - it's double sided so each box got one card. In the box they went. . .  Wrapped the boxes in bubble wrap Then wrapped them in brown paper - last minute decided to stamp them with " <3 handle with care <3"  it looked better on the piece of paper I did it on first... the bubble wrap made it challangeing - but I went with it anyways.  I then used packing tape to tape every surface so that the paper wouldn't get torn in shipping. Finally, I taped on the address labels : ) (btw -  the addresses on the labels I made up so I could post a picture on the internet - the info from my TA is correct if anyone has a need for one ) :woot2:

    Amazing job as usual

      Hi ladies:

       

      As you know, I love nothing better than things that are priced at FREE NINETY-NINE! I mentioned before that I was planning to sign up with Appy Couple to have a wedding website/app in one.  I've found a few codes for 20 percent off, but on a whim, I decided to google free codes.  Most were expired, but then I found this:

      I really think is a cool addition to your wedding that will really help to make it unique.

        Ok ladies....I have to confess I just went on a HUGE wedding shopping spree ....at work....online.......my FI's head is going to spin LOL.

         

        So, I decided to DIY my own invites so I printed all the inside pages already *yay* and than I went to Michael's to price card stock paper (40% off coupon starts sunday). I found this textured card stock, 40 sheets for $3.99 and can use the coupon!! And than while I was there I saw those triangle banners.....12 triangles for $1.40 so I bought them, they're white and I'm going to write out "Thank you" and use them for our engagement phone shoot (which we are getting done on the beach in FL for $30, win!) and also take them for the wedding....

         

        Than I went online.....downfall!! LOL I had 30 free prints and free shipping for snapfish, so I used that to print our engagement party pictures! Than on to GNC to get my total lean shakes, buy one get one 1/2 off! (gotta fit in that damn dress!), ordered my envelopes for my invitations!!!!, ordered waterproof labels & stickers so I can print them and put on tumblers and stuff, and than I did the groupon for vistaprint and got 4 custom shirts for a total of $17. LOL.....now time to put the card away and step away from the order now button....

            Ok ladies with two $5 off coupons. I purchased 20 first aid kits and 20 aloe Vera gels for $30 at bed bath &beyond

            Progress! !

            If you were getting a bridal party thank you tote bag....would you prefer a sarong or towel? I'm leaning towards the sarong since they are cheaper and lighter. and the hotel offers fresh beach towels everyday.

            Vote for sarong

            Simple welcome bag, didn’t want to personalize them, in hope that our guest will use them again when they return to the states.  

            Didn't think of not personalizing. .nice bags
