They so have superstores here but I haven't seen a wholesale one so I thought it might be something different! Thanks for the heads up! Did you use a Circut Machine for your table numbers?

I did! ahah, I used the Tie the Knot cartridge for the sign background and Elegant Cakes for the numbers and then glued them on

I think it is completely possible to keep them way under $1000!  Sean and I have been collecting things for a while now. I have been tracking the price and for 28 adults and 6 children (so far, hope the number stays this way), we have only spent $144.50 so far. We do have a few more things to add and pick up, but at the end of it all we are hoping to stay at around $300. 

I should add that we are doing separate guest favours, and we are not counting that price in the OOT bags. 

We have 63 people so that might make a difference in price. We are buying everyone a 7 hour catamaran for $3500 so that is where a huge chunk is going. I am going to buy the sunglasses at logolenses for the wedding favour. I am going to put them on the place settings with a little note about the trip - some cute saying - I haven't decided yet. I would love to do the bags though..


Superstore wholesale - I don't think they have one in WPG either but it sounds awesome!!!

Everything looks so nice!  Can't wait to see you emergency tags.  I'm curious to see how you are going to make them.  :)

I bet your guests will love the catamaran trip! I love the idea of the sunglasses as well. I originally wanted them for our favours. However, my FI is known for his shot glass collection-although he is not a big drinker at all- and he mentioned the idea of shot glasses for favours, so that is what we are planning on doing. If I were you I wouldnt worry if you dont get to the OOT bags. the 7 hours on a catamaran is more than enough!

Ha - I was totally leaning on the "no" side of the fence on OOT bags but we finalized this weekend that we ARE doing them. We're doing personalized (collapsible) koozies that we'll put a Red Stripe beer in, a hangover kit and then some local Jamaican food/candy items. My fiance is Jamaican so this seems appropriate. We'll just stop at the store when we arrive and stock up. Plus our letter and itinerary, of course.

 

I keep wanting to add things (I originally wanted to do the room key wrist coils and fans) but when I see my budget spreadsheet go up and up and up...I brings me back down to earth :)

 

Also, you're story about the suit is so cute! We are less than 3 months away and my fiance has given no consideration to what he is going to wear. *sigh*

I wish we had Superstore Wholesale here! The only thing we have similar is Costco and they are OK sometimes for deals. Can't wait to see how your emergency kits turn out :)

I think the Catamaran is also more than enough - that is so awesome! your guests will love it.

Have you considered putting the glasses on their ceremony chairs? Unsure if your ceremony is on the beach, but ours way and it was SOOOO bright. I brought some for the bridal party for 'fun' pictures and noone took them off because of the sun! 

 

 

Is the Superstore Wholesale just the 'real canadian superstore' ? or are we talking the 'canadian wholesale'?

 

I also agree that Costco can be a hit or miss for this OOT type stuff.

I know, there are things that I totally wanted to do, but then the budget doesn't allow. I still think giving them anything is great anyway, doesn't matter if it's a lot or a little, it's more the thought that counts :)

 

Juan has been thinking about this suit for ages, looking online at things he liked, etc. In a way it was harder to find his suit than it was to find my dress! haha. He just says that it's an important day and he needs to look good haha.

I think a 7hr catamaran is more than enough! We got offered to do a private yacht for our guests but it was wayy more per person than what our bags cost us, so needless to say we couldn't afford it haha. As a guest at your wedding, I would be super happy with the catamaran cruise and wouldn't expect anything else. 

 

I wish we had Superstore Wholesale here! The only thing we have similar is Costco and they are OK sometimes for deals. Can't wait to see how your emergency kits turn out :)

Yeah, Costco is ok but not great. Superstore wholesale wasn't amazing either. They sell a lot of materials for cooking and baking, so for restaurants and things like that and those things are cheaper, but I don't know about everything else. 

 

I think the Catamaran is also more than enough - that is so awesome! your guests will love it.

Have you considered putting the glasses on their ceremony chairs? Unsure if your ceremony is on the beach, but ours way and it was SOOOO bright. I brought some for the bridal party for 'fun' pictures and noone took them off because of the sun!

I think the glasses on the chairs is a fun idea! We're putting them on the welcome bags because we're not getting married until 2 days before we come back, so I think they'll get more use that way. 

 

Yeah it's the Real Canadian Superstore, but wholesale :). There's one in the NE and another one by Chinook.
