Love your bags and fillers. Thanks so much for sharing!


Here are the bags I ended up getting and these were FREE at Old Navy. I do not have anything yet to fill them.

Currently for my Favor bags im doing the following:

Bag (One per Cabin): $1.99 Disneystore.com


Embroidered 30x60 Beach Towels (One per person): $10.73 towels4less.com
Something along these lines, im still unsure about the wording, Definitely changing the stitching from the grey color to white so it pops better. Towel will be Royal Blue


Custom Water Bottles (One per person): $3.73 discountmugs.com
With the similar logo the towel will have


Custom Playing Cards (One deck per Cabin): $9.99 artscow.com
The Kings will have photos of DF alone, The queens will have photos of me alone, The jacks will be our bridal party, The Aces will be his parents, my mom and step dad, my dad and step mom and us together, and the rest of the deck will have pics of each of our gusts (one couple per card).

Back side of the card:


Comic Strip Book we found and like (One per Cabin): $6.77 bulkbookstore.com
We are personally inscribing each book.


Bath and Body Works PocketBac Hand Sanitizer with rubber holder thing(One per Cabin): $1.50


Disney Mickey Pen (One per Cabin): 5 for $1.00 Dollar Store

Post It Notes (One pad per Cabin): Haven t priced this out yet.

Tylenol (4 individual packets per cabin): 50 pkts for $14.95 Staples.com

Bonine (4 pills per room): Still looking for a good price.

Magnetic ears for the cabin doors, Maybe some personalized "Im here for" Magnets also for the doors.

and that's about it...

Alot of our items are costly but will be usefull so we arent putting in alot of filler like candy or snacks... there will be pleanty of food on the ships to justify not including snacks.

NONE of my guest know about the playing cards... not even my parents. Thats gonna be the big surprise.

Wow! You have been busy! I feel so behind! I still don't even have my dress!
I have your PJ marked so I can follow along on your planning! I also got an email, just with her introducing herself. I better get busy!

I bought Royal Blue canvas tote bags from Hobby Lobby and glued silver ribbon along the trim (later there will be a flower with a gem in the middle to cover the ribbon seam) I had two of the DIS-igners design me some wedding logos- I highly recommend that more people do this! It's a great way to personalize your favors! I used iron-on transfers to affix the logos to the bag, and I'm eventually going to use stencils to paint some filigree around the logo.

INSIDE the bag:
Glow-Sticks (Target Dollar Spot)
Home-made Mickey Soaps - TWO kinds! (www.brambleberry.com for supplies)
Post-It Notes in a paper wrapper with another wedding logo on it
Mickey Plastic Ice Cubes
Nautical Magnetic Pad of Paper (Target $ Spot) for the door
Nautical Pens (Target $ Spot)
"I'm Here For The Wedding" Magnets (designed by a DIS-igner) for stateroom doors
Magnetic "Character" Name Tags (from the Cruise Magnet forum) for stateroom doors
Personalized books of Matches (100 on sale for $19 from TheKnot)
Chapstick (bulkapothecary.com)
Lint Rollers (2 for $1 @ Target $ Spot)
Mickey Band-Aids
Polysporin, single use
Small single-use Sunscreen tubes
Anti-Bacterial Hand Wipes
Shout Stain Fighter Wipes
Vials of Pixie Dust! (Small vials filled with a mix of iridescent glitters, with ribbon around it and a 'hershey kiss' sticker on the bottom)

The way I see it, a lot of these items will be useful and most of my guests (my current count is 45!!) won't remember to bring along things like a lint roller or shout wipes! I'm trying to have some practical items along with a few things they can bring home to enjoy! I still have match books from my cousin's wedding 7 years ago! Another item I REALLY wanted to get (but probably won't) are personalized Koozies! You can get those at www.beau-coup.com and I would've filled them with candy wrapped in cellophane... Who has ever thrown away a free koozie, am I right? I would also really like to find bulk "Ring Pops" as a fun wedding-y favor. I'm also considering making cheap-y luggage tags by printing a template I have, printing them on card stock, and having them laminated. Then you can just punch a hole and tie a pretty ribbon loop and use a pen to fill in your address.

ALSO, I got an e-mail from the new wedding planner! Meredith Gallinero. I hope she meets and exceeds our expectations!

And for the DIS'er looking for photographers, I'm using Lora Rodgers (http://lorarodgers.com/) because she offered to come along for just the cost of the cruise! I get her ALL day and I'm going to get a CD of all the the edited images I don't think she'd agree to go for free again, but it's great to know that you can find photographers willing to do it for the experience and fluffing their portfolio!

I got the Idea from another DIS Bride Lisa Who is now my Travel Agent.

When you go to the webpage click on the embroidery link on the left hand side then click towel embroidery link.

It will bring you to the page where you can fully customize everything for the logo I told them to use the mickey head from a previous job they did (Lisa's) the job #HY0330 you can see it here http://www.cottonfruit.com/wedding.htm

the cost of the embroidery for mine turned out to be 3.75 per towel plus the cost of the towel of 6 something there fore each towel being a bit over 10 bucks each.

I wanted the smoke stack background and he took them but when we got the pictures, the top was cut off and you couldn't see the mickey head.

Remember, they are not wedding photographers so they aren't really trained at what spots to hit.

Look thru past renewal and wedding pictures to get ideas. We meet with ours the day before the ceremony and told him what we wanted.

Write down what you want and give him/her the list so they know.

Travel sewing kit, individual Crystal Light packs, personalized luggage tags, and crossword/word search/sudoku books. The bags themselves are Lands End canvas totes that were on sale.

Thanks. I have Old Navy's Snap Appy on my iPhone and everyday you can scan an ON logo to score coupons, etc. I happened to get a $10 off any purchase and a $5 off any purchase. The bags are priced at $1/each - and because the coupons didn't have any minimum amount to spend, they were free

They weren't quite the bags I was looking for, but FREE, I'll take them!

I make soaps I have a small starfish mold (ice cube sized) but they could be embedded into a larger soap, perhaps with a sandy colored background to make it look like a starfish in the sand- I could even embed ground loofah into the "sand" for an authentic 'gritty' sandy feel that's also exfoliating! Check out my PJ for photos of my soaps, and PM me with any questions! I live in Orlando just next to Disney

OH MY GOSH, those are some good ideas! I love the "Hangover kit" too funny, but also useful! I love the ideas for disposable cameras, I'd heard of these used at receptions, but I hadn't though of that for gift bags! Where did you get beachy kleenex packs and travel sized wrinkle releaser? And Crystal Light packs are such a good idea for sprucing up water in your stateroom! So many good ideas, Kudos!

Those were my qualms, exactly! When I was on my last Dream cruise in January, I had put two-and-two together that their cm's that take photos of guests on the stairwells or against a backdrop were the ones who also take photos of the weddings. In the parks, Photopass is a great service, but do you really want a photopass photographer for your WEDDING photos? Ahhh, I'm thrilled that I found a photographer to bring along with me!

Don't remember where I found the tissues online. Personal size Wrinkle Release was from Target. If you make the Hangover Kit, print labels to seal the bags closed
with out of focus letters that say, Hangover Kit, the are really cute.

Ahh! Exactly 2 months until I set sail... Is it time to freak out yet?!?!?! Wish me luck! Work is only going to get hotter and hotter and busier and busier draining all of my energies making it harder and harder to get anything wedding-like done! Wish me luck, it's officially CRUNCH TIME!
