    We did an instant lottery ticket like the one in the picture below; however, we forgot to put them out (and I don't think anyone noticed), so we scratched them all off the next day!

    I really don't know yet....it's a surprise, lol.

    My SIL wanted to do my favors as a gift to me and she won't tell me what they are.  She simply asked if I trusted her and I said of course and it was left at that...she has great taste so I'm not worried.  Now, she is a manager at Godiva Chocolates and last summer she mentioned something to me about having chocolate seashells in the store and how cute it would be, so I'm thinking those may be the favors.  We shall see....

    I was thinking it would be hard for out of towners to carry anything back with them, I love all the ideas above! 

    If the love lotto ticket is still in manufacture next year, I think I will go with that!  Thanks for the ideas!

    Milk and white hocolate covered Oreos that I am making in white, blue and brown.  I am including them in the candy bar.  I did a trial run this weekend and brought them into the office.  They said they were delicious.  How could chocolate covered anything not be good?

    OK, I am a moron, I thought the lotto tix themselves said "love", just looked at the pic more closely and see it was a sticker that said love.  haha, either way, still a cute idea!

    we are having Mini beach balls printed with our names and OBX Memorial Day Weekend 2012 or something.  We haven't officially decided.  They are really cute and not all that expensive.  I think its going to be about $125 for 100 of them and that includes the setup fee.  I think you have to order at least 100 though.  Also, I loved someone else's ideas about the flip flops for dancing.  I'm totally stealing that :)  We'll probably only put out about 30 pairs though.  Finally, we are getting flip flop bottle openers for the rehearsal dinner attendees.

    <font color="#008000">We're doing the exact same things!  where are you getting the bags- have you found them yet?  My Mom grabbed all the Italian Cookie recipes from my Dad's family (the Italians) and tried them out so she'll be making those</font>
