  1. Miscellaneous wedding related clothing. "Bride" Tank top- $10 Size Large, White, worn once "Bride" Silky Shorts Size Large, White, never worn "I Do" tank top & boy short- $20 Size Medium, Turquoise Feather (Light Blue), never worn Lace Dress by Soprano-$65 Size Large, White, new with tags http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/soprano-lace-fit-flare-dress/4020316?cm_mmc=Linkshare-_-datafeed-_-juniors_women%3Adresses%3Adress-_-1099507&siteId=gcdL_ATRVoE-yIuzKGYVeBFki4eABY13rA A-Line Chiffon Ruffle Skirt Dress from Francesca's- $30 Size Medium, White, worn once (There is a small fray on one of the chiffon ruffles which is located on the hip area and not very noticeable.

  2. Repost Brand new, in the box directly purchased from Ugg Australia. Size 7.5 but they run really big. (My guess is that they fit like an 8.5). I am typically a 7.5/8 and found the size 7 to fit me comfortably. I also have the size 7 that I wore for the ceremony and for an hour at our wedding reception. Soft nubuck shapes the Lucy wedge sandal from UGG Australia, in nude with braided raffia trim. UGG Australia "Lucy" nubuck sandal. 4 1/4" covered wedge; 3" equiv. Peep toe tops 1 1/4" platform. Straps crisscross over ankle. Fixed bow at back of counter. Leather lining and footbed. Braided raffia-trimmed midsole. Rubber sole provides traction. "Lucy" is imported. I had the hardest time finding a neutral colored wedge sandal to wear for my beach wedding. I'm 5'0 and needed some height but was worried about wearing heels in the sand. These wedge style sandals were perfect because they were soft, comfortable, and TALL! I was able to walk in the sand without sinking! I also really liked them because they blended in with the sand and gave the appearance that I was barefoot. This design has been discontinued and very hard to find so I purchased two pairs of these sandals and never returned the ones that were too big! Originally purchased for $115.00. Please make a reasonable offer for either pair if you're interested. Feel free to message me with any questions!

    Wally Bag

    I purchased mine from Amazon thinking that I'd sell it after my wedding but decided to keep it. We just returned from our 1st anniversary trip and I packed my dresses, a bathingsuit, cover up, heels, and accessories in my Wally Bag and used it as a carry on. That bag is amazing! Here is the link to the one I have if you can't find one from another bride. Good luck!!! https://www.amazon.com/WallyBags-Inch-Tri-Fold-Destination-Black/dp/B002B0CR0S/ref=sr_1_1?s=apparel&srs=2603461011&ie=UTF8&qid=1469460060&sr=8-1&keywords=destination

    Use Of The Mariachi Band Question

    Does your resort have a champagne toast on the beach after the ceremony? This could be a fun way to incorporate the Mariachi and also make for some fun pictures! It would almost be like a little cocktail hour and you could ask if the resort could keep the bubbly flowing while the Mariachi played for their 45 minutes. Just a thought! Good luck with the rest of your planning!!!

    Personal Item On Plane

    Thanks ladies! I agree with @@acw271011, Kim you are a smart traveler! We're flying out of the US and after a little more searching I found the following (personal items are to be stored under the seat so I think I'll be ok according to these measurements!) Carry-on Baggage Size Restrictions Each customer may bring onboard one personal item (purse, briefcase, laptop, etc.) which must fit under the seat, plus one carry-on bag which must be stowed in the overhead bin. Dimensions are as follows: Overhead: In order to fit in the overhead bin, your carry-on bag must not exceed 22" L (55.88 cm) x 14" W (35.56 cm) x 9" H (22.86 cm) on all of our aircraft types Under the seat: Airbus A321: 17 inches (43.2 centimeters) length x 13 inches (33 centimeters) width x 11 inches (27.9 centimeters) height A320 / E190: 18 inches (45.72 cm) length x 15 inches (38.1 cm) width x 8 inches (20.32 cm) height
  10. Hi ladies, We're leaving one week from today for our wedding in Mexico! I'm super excited and am now just trying to work out the logistics of how we're going to get everything down there. Has anyone ever used either the Thirty-One Zip-Top Organizing Tote or All-Day Organizing Tote as a personal item in addition to a carry on bag? I appreciate your help and suggestions! Thanks!!! http://www.thirtyonegifts.com/catalog/product/320/catid/22/swid/081a/zip-top-organizing-utility-tote-in-bubble-bloom/ http://www.thirtyonegifts.com/catalog/product/358/catid/22/swid/079a/all-day-organizing-tote-in-black-playful-parade/
  11. Congratulations! What a beautiful wedding. Thanks for sharing your experience with us!!
  12. Our wedding is 3 weeks from today and I can't believe how fast it's sneaking up on us! From day one we were not planning on having video service at our wedding. It was even an included option in our wedding package but every video I watched I was left feeling "eh" and that we don't need video. I also kept thinking that we are going to have amazing photographs to swoon over. BUT THEN... I was introduced to a specific videographer's work and after viewing his work (@@KayRae <3 I have you to thank!), I felt so compelled to reach out him them directly- seriously, I cried when I watched his videos of strangers- crazy but made me want to have our wedding day captured on film so much more! Because we weren't planning on having this service, we have not budgeted for it and it's definitely a splurge. Planning a destination wedding has proven to cost more than we had anticipated and I made some great sacrifices with flowers and decor to keep our wedding budget in check and I keep telling myself that our day will be beautiful regardless. We have an amazing photography team coming with us from home and I know that they will do a magnificent job photographing our day and we will have those memories to look back on. I'm just not sure what to do and would appreciate thoughts and advice from other brides.
  13. The bridesmaid dresses at BHLDN are beautiful! I considered getting one myself. http://www.bhldn.com/bridesmaids-bridesmaid-dresses/ I also love design Tadashi Shoji's evening gowns. http://www.tadashishoji.com/shop/wedding/bride
  14. Beautiful photos!!! What a fantastic wedding day!
  15. @@Heidz1234 we're having a small wedding with 16 guests at Secrets Maroma Beach next month! Like you, I wanted to have a fun wedding reception after our ceremony and it's all coming together so nicely! We opted for the Secrets Ultimate wedding package and are hiring a DJ through the wedding coordinator at the resort, I found an awesome local baker recommended to me by @@KayRae, and have received so many reviews and recommendations from both @@KayRae and @@FutureMrsNash! This website has been a Godsend in helping me plan the perfect destination wedding and I seriously would have been so much more confused and stressed if I hadn't found it and the girls on here! The resort is gorgeous and everything has been very easy going and stress free leading up to our wedding so far! Best of luck with your plans!!!
