    OOT Bags

     

    I have to give thanks to BDW for these. 10 months ago, I hadn't ever even heard the term!

    After blessedly stumbling onto BDW, followed by hours of research, I knew we absolutely had to do them :)

     

    We are giving:

     

    Airplane Survival Bags

    -ziplock bag

    -kleenex

    -pen

    -hand sanitizer (all above from Dollarama)

    -2 sets of foam earplugs (a pair for each way) (free! love samples)

    -gum (Costco)

    -Welch's fruit gummies, snack size (Costco)

    -granola bar (Walmart on sale)

     

    Total: $3 per person

    Our mothers and my bridesmaids are also getting eyemasks in their bags


    23 days and counting until "We Do" in the beautiful Riviera Maya!

    Yay! the world still exists - it would've really sucked to have done all this planning for nothing! :D

              La Vie en Rose Aqua has cute wet swimsuit bags for $1.95 each. All female guests are getting one in their beach OOT bag :)

              Now to figure out what to get for the guys!

               

              Finally got all the stuff I've ordered so far from Oriental Trading today (shipped via favour from a friend of a friend who crosses the border frequently)

              I am pleased with the quality for the price. So now it's time to order the balance of goodies from there before I'm out of time!

                Andre finally finished our Boarding Pass Invitations (for all those going to Mx with us, plus Grandparents)

                I think they were well worth the wait! We had them professionally printed at the print shop around the corner on heavy cardstock.

                 

                I made the brochures in Word based off the template in Vistaprint which is so popular with BDW members, with content ''borrowed" from several other BDW brides (thank you!) tweaked to suit us.

                 

                I made the Pass Holders from blue scrapbook paper from Michaels, on sale 4/$1, then tied with raffia that I had in my craft bin (I believe it will also be making an appearance in our wedding aisle decor)

                 

                 

                 

                 

                 

                The finished product!
