We are inviting 40 ppl and expect most to come. I am having a hard time figuring out what to do for the oot. But hoping inspiration strikes soon :)

 

What colors is everyone doing? We are going bright: purple and teal!

How fun! We almost were going to try to get married in the US...it makes things a little easier I am sure. That will be pretty! Love those colors...I haven't seen too many people post pictures of those colors yet! We are going to do Coral and Navy. I have seen lots of really interesting OOT bags. Have you been on orientaltrading.com? They have lots of little things and it may give you some ideas. I love the "oh sh*t kits" which include: aspirin, sunscreen, tips for a hangover, chapstick, pepto bismo, shout wipes, gum or altoids, and band aids, etc....I have seen some people put disposable cameras in theirs, cups, mugs,sewing kit, pen and paper, coozies, coasters, kleenex, bath poofs (that's what I call them LOL) Hope that helps a little!

I have already sent out invitations. They were sent out about a month ago....lol. I know, its early but we did it via email with an invitation and a link to the wedding webpage.

For oot bags, I have started picking up things. I have the bags, mugs picked out, lanyard/pouches, and I think I am going to go grab lip balms today! Its fun!

Have you bought lots already? I am putting in almost all of the things that you mentioned to tristanc, except for the camera, coasters, sunscreen and oozies..i think. So I am going to do a hangover kit, snack kit, and some other general things thrown in.

How awesome!! Where are you getting your stuff at? I need to hit the dollar store and Costco and see what I can find there. I will post pics of my finds :) I also am making a little puzzle book that's all have to do with us and Mexico. I use: http://www.discoveryeducation.com/free-puzzlemaker/?CFID=249886&CFTOKEN=47680354# and make sure you push the little bubble "text" so you are able to copy and paste it on to word so you can completely customize the fonts and what not. :)

That word search looks fantastic! Thanks so much for the link. I was going to start looking but now I don't have to. Originally I thought of buying crossword books, but I think instead I will just throw some in inside the booklet I am going to make.

I have decided, because of the cost of medicine here, that costco is going to be the best bet for pirces. I bought little baggies, 2 iin x 2in, and I am goin to fill them with advil, pepto tablets, immodium, etc and then print labels off for dosage and what they are.

 

I found a fantastic buy on a mug at the dollar tree in Toronto. I am North of there so I actually have to order more then get someone to pick them up for me. They are a travel mug, 16 ounces, with a hole in the top big enough to fit a nice sized straw in.  

 

I bought 12 bags (I only have 20 adults coming and 10 kids(kids bags I bought from the dollar store)) from dollar days online and sent them to my mother inlaw in arizona. I think the total on those after delivery was only 39.00 (they are two tone, big bags).

 

I ordered some little things (sewing kits, propel juice mix, antibacterial ointment, wipes , blistex lip ointment, etc) from a place called minimus.biz.(the total was $28.00 whhich included shipping and I ordered about 15-30 of them each).

 

I got 14 hand sanitizer at the dollar store for $7. And lotions (15) at zellers, when it was closing for $0.50 each

 

Lanyards and the plastic cover things I got from...Specialist ID online. I ordered 23 badge holders with zippered tops and lanyards for 30.00 (including shipping)

 

Thats about it I think :) Its fun shoppping for deals. If you want any pictures let me know.

Hi Megan,

I am doing purple too!...haven't decided the other colour yet. Finally bought the bridesmaid dresses last week. Early but we got them for a fantastic price...

 

Well - now I am only doing purple. Having two colors was getting tough. Teal will still be in there - just not as much as I had originally. Planned. I just picked out my bridesmaids dresses too! David's Bridal - as much as I didn't want to - had just the perfect dress. Now it is onto shoes for the girls!

Thank you for all of the ideas! I am heading over to Oriental Trading right now :)
