Update:  I company offered to cancel my order and refund my money.  They were not willing to adjust the order.  I agreed to have it cancelled.  I reordered the right product and I thought everything was fine.  I checked my account...they never refunded my money for the first order.  I called them and they said it was too late since my order was shipped. What?  So now I have a box full of empty tubes coming my way.

OH NO...THAT IS AWFUL!  Sorry about that!  Can you use them for anything else?  Maybe people can post suggestions.

Even though I have already done a lot of DIY things for my wedding in June 2013, this is the first thing I have started a thread on so bare with me....

 

I mentioned in the thread for my resort (Azul Sensatori) that I made these and there was a lot of interest.. so here goes:

 

I bought the chapstick from a website called Bulk Apothecary for .14 cents/chapstick with NO MINIMUM! Whooo! I ordered 50. Talk about cheap! These are the ones I bought: http://www.bulkapothecary.com/containers/lip-balm-tubes-jars-and-tins/white-stick-standard-15-oz-lip-balm-tube/

 

The picture shows a blue chapstick but it is clear (and tastes like regular chapstick). I am very happy with the quality. 

 

They also have flavors for .19 cents/chapstick. These: http://www.bulkapothecary.com/lip-balm/white-stick-lip-balm-comes-in-6-great-flavors-starting-at-19-unit/

 

The website also offers the labels you need in order to make your chapsticks personalized. The sheets are only $1 per sheet and there are 15 labels/sheet.

 

Once my items came in the mail I got to work designing my label. I dabble in graphic design and find it very fun! 

 

When I was ready to print my labels I was able to find a template for them online here: (You can also ask Bulk Apothecary and they will email you a template)

http://www.onlinelabels.com/Templates/OL421-template-pdf.htm 

 

At first I messed up because I thought the orientation of the label was top to bottom, but its left to right (sideways) so I had to tweek my design and upload the design into the template sideways.

 

Once I got that straightened out I was good to go and all I had to do was put the stickers on my chapstick tubes. I have to say I am so pleased with how they came out and I think they will really be a hit!

 

One side says MEXICO Wedding Week June 2013 Azul Sensatori Riviera Maya, MX

and the other says Besos! Meg & Dan

 

Sorry for the kind of crappy picture quality. I was trying to get the stick from all angles and I tried some with flash and some without.

Happy Planning everyone! Let me know if you have any questions :)

Megan -

Is there a way to edit the the link you posted where you ordered your first ones where the tubes came empty? I wonder if that's also confusing people to order the wrong ones? I can't believe this company haven't made this more clear.

I'm so sorry this happened! I would try contacting them again and speaking with someone else.

I know...it sucks!  I called and I would have to pay to ship them back.  It's not worth it so I will just hold on to them.  Maybe one day they will come in handy.  
I am so sorry .... I can't believe that. When I contacted them saying my tubes came empty they just sent the right ones. No question or fees, etc. unreal! I truly am sorry... It won't let me edit the thread so I can't change it. :/

It's okay! No sweat! I will find something to do with them. I have quite a few friends that are teachers...I will probably donate the tubes to one of them.

That's a great idea. I have the empty ones, too!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
