Destination Wedding Gift Bags.....

 

Don't forget your guests - they've traveled quite a way to share in your special day.  Here are some ideas of things that you can pick up either at the destination wedding location or easily pack in your luggage!

A Tote Bag - If your destination wedding is anywhere near a beach a tote bag is a great idea!  I know I always forget to bring a little bag to carry those essentials to the water, my book, suntan lotion, glasses, maybe a bottle of water.

Sunglasses - How many times have you gotten on a plane to the Caribbean and forgot your sunglasses? Some cute little glasses in your wedding colors would be fun for guests!

Some Local Flavor - no matter where you are there is always a little something in a great little shop!  Spend some time hunting - or just talk to your wedding planner - or venue planner and ask...a little local treat goes a long way!''

Jamaica Tags

Luggage Tags - Other than letting you know that it's your luggage coming down the conveyor belt at an airport there really isn't much use for a luggage tag (the airlines don't care) but once you get to the belt and see that sea of black bags circling you'll be glad to see that tag...and your guests will also!

Don't forget the little things - bottled water, chap stick and a bag or two of chips!

Happy Planning!

Toast

Yes, there is an art of the wedding toast!  It’s not that hard, and it can be a lot of fun so here are some pointers that you should take into consideration when preparing.

Why do they call it a "toast"? It comes from the French custom of putting a piece of bread at the bottom of a wine goblet.  The goblet was passed around to honored guests and the guest who got it last would eat the bread.  Not sure if this would work today!

Tip For the Bride & Groom - When someone is toasting you, don’t raise your glass like everyone else.  Since you are the ones being honored, it is not considered polite to toast yourself.

Who speaks?  It should only be the VIP’s, after all it is your wedding – not open mike night.  The best man and maid or matron of honor should keep it short and sweet.  If someone is going to be long-winded – they should keep it for the rehearsal dinner.  Parents should also do their toasting at the rehearsal dinner.

If you (the bride & groom) want to toast your guests try to do it at the end of the night – right before the last dance so your guests can begin getting ready to leave for the evening.

The toasts should also take place AFTER you cut the cake! This way your caterer has time to begin slicing during the toasts and by the end of the toasts your first guests are enjoying the cake!

Just a little tip to keep the ball rolling from a wedding planner!
