Good thinking about the face cloths that seems to be something you dont get at most resorts and everyone wants one!!!

Hey ladies...my most recent activity:

 

Given the size of my group, and as I may have previously mentioned, I will be handing out my OOT bags before we leave.  However, I created a little Welcome package to hand out to the Group on the bus.  

the package contains our Welcome Brochure; Map of the resort with information about the resort on the back ie time for Buffet etc.  door hang "Wedding Group"; room key, Request for Coffee card and the Wedding Day Program.    I assembled everything like this:

The other thing I wanted to share we my experience last weekend.  I was having anxiety as I had not done a site inspection before booking.  So on Wednesday I booked a 3 night vacation for me and my MOG to Varadero to go check out the resort and meet with the Wedding co-ordinator.   This was by far the best thing that I have done so far!  It answered so many questions and we got to check out the resort and the surroundings for pictures. Well worth the $485 I paid for the 3 nights.  Heck, I can't stay in downtown Toronto for $500 with my meals, drink and accomodations so it was a no brainer.  I would recommond this to ALL brides.

Just received my shoes that I will wear for pictures and the reception.  I bought them of Etsy and only paid $35 for them.  They fit so well and are very comfortable.

Bridesmaid's and MOH's Makeup Gift Bag.  Inside there is: makeup brushes; eye shadow; french manicure set; nail polish remover; lip gloss; razor and a small tide

 

I bought the bags and most of the contents on ebay. 

Bridesmaids Bags:  I got on sale from a vendor on ebay for $3.94 each...here is the link but I see that the price has gone up to $9.49.  :-(

Lydia, would you be willing to share your template for your door hangers? I have tried and failed to do my own!
