Welcome to New York City!


My last project is finally complete! I feel so accomplished. That’s it! We’re done! No more loose ends! Nothing else to do but relax and look forward to our wedding. With the Playbill now printed, we finished filling the gable boxes and we’re ready to roll. Inside the gable box were my water bottles with my DIY labels, pretzels, postcard and “stamp”, a 5th Avenue candy bar, coupon to Top of the Rock, Playbill, phone list, maps, and an apple (not shown).


Fmil bought these little “Thank You” charms during a clearance. I printed and cut the tags morning, backed them with pink card stock and placed them over the ribbon. The font is Bickham Script and Broadway.


Here they all are. Since we wanted to make these WAY ahead of time, we tucked the 2 side flaps down leaving an open space to add the apple as close to the wedding day as possible to avoid rotting. Fmil went to the grocery store and picked out 20 of the best looking red delicious apples for the bags.


My babies lookin’ so pretty with their bows. We stapled the handle together for extra hold. The ribbons varied from organza, light pink, dark pink, wired ribbon to green ribbon. We just used whatever we had.


Making the OOT bags were a lot of fun, but it is the most tedious thing to have to bring over to the hotel. They do not stack on top of one another, so they are a bit of pain to transport. They can’t be left in a car either because they contain chocolate that would melt. In order to transport them a little more easily, we placed 4 gable boxes into a gift box lid meant for clothes. They fit perfectly!

How did you manage transporting your wedding related items to the hotel, ceremony or reception site? Did you make multiple runs or did someone help you?

    Great job! They look beautiful!

    We used gable boxes too… fortunately we had a coordinator who delivered the boxes for us. We gave ours out at our Welcome-to-Town party so we didn’t have to pay the hotel the “delivery fee” ($3/box! – what a rip off!) and we only had 1 delivery location. Very easy for me! They were a big hit with our guests. And, frankly, they weren’t that expensive so I didn’t care if anyone kept the box. It really wasn’t meant for a keepsake, it was just packaging to me!

    Melissa – We ordered our gable boxes from http://www.papermart.com. :)

    We are using gable boxes too and got them from
    http://www.bagsandbowsonline.com/ . You have to order 100. But we are going to sell the left overs after the wedding. We were very happy with the service and quality.

    Finished?? As in, no last-minute all-night work sessions with your MOH that leave you exhausted for your actual wedding weekend??? WELL DONE!!! (They look great too! And the Playbill idea was adorable!)
