The welcome bags I bought look like small white gift bags that have Welcome to Our Wedding printed on them with a cream and black flower design on them. I don't mind the colors because they're very neutral and so I thought to just put some purple and lavender gift paper to add my colors to it. I found them on OrientalTrading.com and literally paid $33 dollars shipping included for 70 of them. They're 6.25 per dozen so they literally cost me about 52 cents each! I found a coupon for 3.99 shipping also. You should visit the website and check them out. The item number for them is IN-3/3808.

         

        I found my favors at Littlethingsfavors.com. They're little zebra print compact mirrors that come pre packaged in clear boxes with a tag that reads Thank you. I looked all over and compared the prices and while other websites have them for almost 1.99-3.50 each, this website sells them for $1.00 each if you buy more than 18 (which I most likely will) They offer customized tags so you can replace the thank you one for an additional .35 cents each. Ill also look around for an online coupon since they always have and apply it to that. I didn't want to get anything beachy or star fishy because I don't want to over do the whole tropical wedding theme, and thought women are usually the ones who go for the favors. The mirrors will be practical, stylish, and will be used more than once. If I order about 50 of them my total will be $61.00 shipping included. The item number for them is LFC-5941 if you want to take a look at them. I thought of just having the welcome bags as favors but I really wanted them to sit down at the reception and have a little something to take back to their rooms after the party.

         

        My goal is to buy everything I need with a coupon, or discounted. So far I was able to use $99 worth of coupons on my save the dates, and wedding invites from weddingpaperdivas.com, I got my table number frames at Marshalls for $5 clearance when originally they were $20 each, I found the welcome bags at the cheapest price online (they're literally about 3.00 EACH on other sites) and I found the favors at the cheapest price as well :)
         


        My next purchase will be the Buri fans that i'll place on the chairs for the guests to fan themselves with. I found them the cheapest at OrientalTrading.com. You can just type in Natural Fans and they'll pop up. Other sites have them for about .99-1.50 each, I found them here for .88 cents! They sell out fast, but they always restock in case you check and they don't pop up. A lot of people also buy the buri fans to double as favors as well.

         

        Sorry for such the long post but I'm so excited about my finds!

         I swore I responded to you, I guess it didn't go through last week though. :o( Yes ma'am! Those are my bags! :o)  And great choice for your bags! I bought those as well, just in case.  Those compacts are super cute!! I'm thinking I should add those to my bridesmaids make-up bags I'm making for them.   Being a thrifty bride is an awesome idea!  I've bought most off my things at HobbyLobby for 50% or 40% off and lots of OOT bag goodies at the $1 Tree. :o)

         

        Love those buri fans.. I call them raffia fans, not sure why.. lol.. But I got 60 of them for an awesome deal. I got a coupon for $5 off plus free shipping, so if you haven't bought them yet, you may want to wait until they run that special again. :o)  I sat down and wrapped most of mine in one night. Super easy, and soooo cute.

         

        Here is a pic. :o)

          Thanks bridetobe23! Congrats to you too! I know you must be super excited, its all I talk about lately lol. Where in NYC are you from? I'm from Queens. I see you're using Liberty Travel, we stopped in to see their rates and are considering using them too. I hope your planning is going smooth as well, any questions let me know. I actually attended a friend's wedding at the Majestic Elegance and have some idea of how things go on there. So happy to see a fellow NYC bride!

            I LOVEEE your fans! My fiance actually peeked over my shoulder and said "Wow those look professional!" I hope mine come out just as nice. Where did you buy your fans at? Did you get them at OrientalTrading.com? I haven't bought them waiting on a definite head count, but if a deal like yours comes up, I'd definitly order. I'm so happy you like the compact mirrors! They have other designs for even cheaper, but I really liked the rhinestones on these. I don't have a HobbyLobby around me which sucks but I have a Christmas Tree Shop around and plan to go there for my OOT bags. Where did you get your ribbon for the fans? What type did you pick and how much did you have to buy? Seeing yours has inspired me to start working on them!

Soo glad to see some girls from around the area! I will be working on my center pieces very soon! As soon as they are done I will post a sample for you girls to see. I was also considering going with Liberty Travel for all our travel arrangements. I emailed them last night, and hoping for a quote very soon!!

                  Hi Tink,

                   

                  I am a NYC Bride as well. I was born and raised in Queens but moved to the Bronx a few years ago. I haven't settled yet and Majestic is holding my date and I only have a week to respond with confirmation to hold. I'm on the fence but you said you went to a wedding there and I wanted to pick your brain for a few of my concerns. 

                   

                  How many weddings happened the same day as the wedding you went to? I asked for a non-private dinner setup and they said I was not able to choose the location if it was a non-private event. I am concerned about there being multiple weddings on my same date and that being an issue in regards to getting my requested facilities. You clearly booked after getting married there which means you must have liked it.

                   

                  Also, did your friend incur a change in price from what she was originally quoted? A few brides complained that the WC's tried to switch prices once they had already agreed on a set price since there is no actual contract signing- one of the things that worries me.

                   

                  Thank you for whatever help you can provide!

                  Evelyn


                  Happily married to the love of my life- since July 5, 2013

                     D'aww, thank you!! :o)  I'm sure yours will look even better!! Yes, I purchased them from OT.com. I planned to wait til closer to time but with them being out of stock for what seemed to be ever, I figured I better stock up while they were back in. :o)  I doubt I need 60, but I figured I'd rather have too many than not enough.

                     

                    Boo about Hobby Lobby, but Ive heard great things about the Christmas store. I need to go check one out for OOT goodies. :o)    Believe it or not, I bought my ribbon for my fans at $1 Tree. I purchases the satin kind and I not sure how many rolls I bought.. I'm wanting to say I got 10 rolls of orange, and still have some left.. I should have done calculations when making them.. :-/ But one roll did quite a few. I learned after a few what length I needed, then started pre cutting strips rather than making a mess of my ribbon, which helped a ton!
