  1. Hi Ladies, I ordered my raffia fans Sunday night and I got them yesterday. I ended up ordering the raffia fans for $6.99 from www.myweddingfavors.com. They are well made and the sizes don't differ that much. I also google a promo code for this website and saved $4!!! Paid less than $40 dollars including shipping for 5 dozen! ) Very happy with my purchase!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  2. Laurelyn, I am doing OTT bags but luggage charges were the first thing that came to my mind. I have seen several brides here on BDW with great ideas but the stuff that they put weights too much. I don't know how they do it, that's a lot of luggage fees. I haven't purchased the bags yet but I am looking. If you come across good and cheap bags let me know! As for the contents of the bags I have decided to do crossword puzzles, soduko, travel meds, sanitation wipes instead of hand sanitizer. I really want to get tequila glasses, or small salsa bottles but I'm thinking of buying that when I get to Mexico. I think that when I get to Mexico, I will be able to shop around and buy local things. It will give my bags that "special touch." As for the TTD, yes we decided on having one. We just decided about a week ago so I am very excited about that. I am going to be using my dress since I don't see a point in buying another dress for that session. I read on one of these threads that some girl just took her dress to the cleaners and it was fine. Honestly, I am very excited about that. What about you?
  3. Laurelyn, I came home today from work, walked my dog, walked to the mailbox and guess what???????? Yes, a small little package with my name on it was inside the mailbox. I immediately looked at it and couldn't read a thing since it was in Chinese. I inhaled deeply and opened the small little package. The veil looks RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! The detail on it its beautiful and I guess in my "cheap eyes" it looks better than what I was expecting for $10 dollars. Its super long so now I have to drive home (parents house) to try my dress with the veil. The one thing that it does not have is a clear comb but I can get that somewhere and glue it to the veil. I will try to post some pics of the veil and my shoes. As for me the planning well I started last year in December but everyone kept saying that I had all this time and blah blah so I listened to them. I planned some things from December 2010 to April 2011. After April I took the rest of spring and summer off from anything wedding related. Just started in August so now I am a little behind but I'm going to get organized and get everything done. If I could pull a 20 page paper in less than a day. I can pull a wedding in the last 3 months that I have left. My bridesmaids only one has ordered their dress 3 more are still lingering. As for the groomsmen, my FI likes me to give him at least 2 weeks in advance of planning so I told him by this date we are going shopping for you and the guys. We went to JoABank ordered his suit and they gave us 70% off. Then headed to Macy's found the pants and shirts that we liked. I had previously asked them for their sizes so we bought them and now they are just paying us back. I figured if you want to get things done its up to us to find a clever way to get things done. By the way what flowers are you using? Any ott bags? Can't wait to hear your comments!
  4. Hi Girls, I just found a set of 12 assorted sizes of raffia fans for $6.99 from www.myweddingfavors.com. I am buying one set of assorted fans for the kids and the rest of the sets I am buying them from koyalwholesale.com for $8.99. Great deal just thought I would share my find from myweddingfavors.com
  5. Yeah that's what I think so too but let's wait till it arrives to confirm the great deal!!!!!!!!!!!!!! cross your fingers! How is everything else...planning wise?
  6. Same here I almost had a heart attack when she told me the price...................... I just don't see myself spending too much money on an accessory that I only get to wear for two hours or so. I think I want to wear the long cathedral veil for the ceremony and some pics.......then for the reception I am going to take it off and wear a flower on my hair. What about you?
  7. Laurenlyn, The veil is beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love it but guess what? I went on ebay and saw a mantilla cathedral veil for $10 dollars so I bought it. It was my first bid on ebay so I am starting to be a fan of ebay. I should be getting the veil in two weeks or so. I'll let you know how it looks and if for some reason the quality is crappy then I will be getting my veil from the same etsy place that you gave me. Thanks for the info!
  8. Thanks for the advice and giving me a ball park idea on how much a TTD session is. Well, I guess my FI and I will decide today for sure. I'll keep you posted. Let's hope he likes the TTD idea as much as I like it.
  9. Coconoir1908, I forgot to answer your question about the photographer, his name is Edson. This is his website: www.emartevisual.com
  10. Beachbum21, I really want to do it but my FI and I will decide today. I hope we can agree that $350 more dollars are worth it! Wish me luck!
  11. Coconoir1908, Great advice!!!!!!!!!!! My FI and I are meeting in an hour to have a late lunch and decide. I'll let you know how it goes!!!!!!!!!!!
  12. This is a question in regards about the TTD. The photographer that I'm looking at has several different packages. For $350 dollars more I get a trash the dress session, a photobook with 36 pages, 3 slide shows, 2 printouts 11 x 14, and 10 printouts 4 x 6. Do you guys think is worth the extra money for the trash the dress and the rest of the stuff? Let me know............I have to give him my decision by the beginning of next week!
  13. Hello Dec 2011 Brides, I have a dilemma that I hope you all will be able to help me out. I am going over the packages for video and photography and for $350 more I can get a trash the dress session, a photobook with 36 pages, 2 11x14 and 10 6x prints, and 3 slideshows (which I don't know what that means exactly).... But, Do you guys think its worth it??
  14. Hi, Just an update on the planning: Last week my future hubby and I went to buy his suit and it just arrived today. We also bought the groomsmen clothes but one of the shirts is too small so we have to go back and return that. I have my dress but I need to schedule an appt for alterations. I also have my shoes and today I ordered my cathedral veil from Ebay. I hope it looks as good as the pic did,...........scared!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also, I ordered disposible cameras last week to have as a cute favor for our guest and they just arrive. I also ordered the cake server and I decided not to have a cake topper because they are too expensive and after our wedding day the cake topper has no purpose. Working on my list for my OTT bags, any suggestions where I can buy them?
