    for our guests, we are putting together little baggies with sunscreen, aloe, antacid, advil, gatorade single packs and a bottle of water. I also wanted to include a little itinary of what the events of the weekend will be. We had custom tote bags made up and are getting travel cups for our guests so they can just refill at the resort.

    Thanks for the input! I am just making these for my best girlfriends who would have been in my wedding party had we not had a destination wedding... I didn't want half of my guests standing up lol! But I still feel like I want to say Thank You for travelling all the way to Cuba. I got them personalized cups and want to do a kit like this. I think I will add aloe, pepto/immodium, advil, mints, and some bandaids.

    I was thinking of doing the whole out of town bag because I think they are super cute BUT everyone travelling with us are travelers so they are already going to have most if not everything we would have given them.

     

    So my FI and I are giving them a personalized tumbler, room key holder and an 'Oh shit' kit that has advil, pepto/immodium, band-aids and alcohol whipes and I found on dhgate some bright sunglasses that are are fairly cheap 20 pairs for $16

    My FI's mom wants to make t-shirts for everyone...not sure on that yet

     

    I also found some super cute swimsuit cover up on dhgate 20pcs for $119 for the women coming, still thinking on this one

    @krisdaversa I love the tshirt idea! I think its so cute and how fun to all be at the airport together in shirts... I would do it but I don't want to pay for them because other people might not think its as cool as I do lol! I LOVE the swim coverup! I want one like that! I wonder if you can buy them individually?

    @csho you can buy them individually I found them on there for $5-8 depending who you buy from.

     

    The tshirt idea is neat and I am sure everyone coming would love it but I don't want to get stuck with bill plus his mom said she wanted to use one colour for brides side and one colour for grooms. Only issue is that 90% of the people going are from my side

    Oh yeah I don't like that half colour idea it might make people feel secluded and definitely wouldn't want to get stuck with the bill!

    I bought one!!! I paid like 10$ no shipping. You pay a lot more then that around here for one so I am pretty pleased! I can let you know how they are when I get it... It might take a month or so though!

    Did you! I was just thinking of ordering a purple one! I have seen similar ones at bikini village for $39 so $10 is a steal! let me know how it is when you get it...unless I buy one first  ;)
