    Hey Guys!

     

    I decided to make my own planning thread since I have been reading so many. And everyone of them are so helpful!

    I put my Welcome bags together so far, and I'm so excited for everyones reactions!

    39 more days till we leave!!!!

     

    This is what I have so far :)

     

    
The thing wrapped in raffia is a sarong with my wedding colors! From Avon :)

     

    Aloe Gel, Antibactirial Gel,2 SPF Lip Balm and mini nail files all from Avon, pretty much FREE. Because I ordered them when I had big orders :)

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Fans from a chinese store $0.60 each! Thank You tages $3.00 for 20

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    These will be on the chairs at the wedding

      It would not let me add more lol

       

      I do not have a big group traveling with me, so I only had to make up 12 bags. 1 of them is a Men's traveling case. Its for my Fiance's brother, as he is traveling with his son. I figured he did not want to carry around a colorful beach bag!

       

      Bags from Dollerama $2.00 each .They even zip up! 

      So all the Avon stuff was pretty much FREE

      Lifesavers from Walmart $2.50 bag of 50

      Aveeno lotion, Tylenol,Aleeve FREE also! my sisters friends mom works in a Dr. office and got them for me!

      Pepto box of 48 for $9 (walmart)

      Tissue packs 8 for $1.50 (walmart)

      Sarongs were $8 each and I bought them for just my wedding party and mom. Then they went on sale for $2.99 so I had to get them for all the ladies!

      Dad's Oatmeal Cookies Box of 10 for $1.50 on sale! They do not expire till March :)

      Granola bars box of 8 (3 boxes for $5!)

      As you can see I'm a bargin hunter!!!!

       

      Hair bling is only for the MOH and BM

      In the organza bag is Soleless Sandals that I made. I will have to post a better picture.

       

      So all in all I pretty much only spent about $15-$20 each bag! woo hoo

      I still really want to add a travel mug, but I haven't decided yet. As funds are getting low.

       

      We also have 2 kids! :)

       

      Thanks for looking

        I finally ordered the gifts for MH, BM,Flower girl, my mom, and his mom yesterday!

        I got them from etsy, and can't wait to see them :)

         

        http://www.etsy.com/...t-set-swarovski

         

        I chose these so that they could always wear it another time. I thought about the starfish necklace, but I figured they would never use it again

          Hey Guys

           

          These are the centerpieces I am making up. The hotel package only included silk flowers, which I hate!

          So I said I would bring my own :)

                    Hey JA2012

                    Thank You!

                     

                    Im actually from Cambridge :) The tags were from a store called Creative Bags in Missisauga, and the fans are from a store in the same parking lot!

                    I do not know the name of it but, I have the address :)

                    975 Pacific Gate Units 1-5

                    L5T 2A9

                     

                    Hope that helps!

                    They have all kinds of different fans, and parasols!

                    Plus a bunch of other stuff at great prices.

                    Seems a lot of people know about this place because it was quite busy! But that was my first time there

                    Definatly a good deal! A friend of mine that also had a destination wedding told me about it :)

                    Good Luck!
