    That's a great idea...
    This might be a dumb question, but with the walkie-talkies, can you have a bunch of them that communicate with eachother, or can you only communicate with one other walkie talkie? I ask because most of the time I've only seen them come in pairs...
    Does that make sense?

    Oh no, we usually have about 6-10 of them working at once. Most walkie talkies will have different stations, so you just program them all to the same station and you're good to go! :)

      Hey Guys there's an OOT master list thread but I thnk this one is great since mot of us are cruise brides. Have you guys heard of rum runners?? My FI and I purchased them for our last cruise and they were a great way to sneak alcohol on the ship. The funny thing is that we barely drank from them bc we were always out of our rooms when we wanted a drink. So I think the mugs would be a great idea. I am doing OOT bags but the amt of items in the bag depends on how man ppl we have going. We just sent out invites last week (most of our friends and family already knew ab it). So until we know how may ppl we have I dont know how much stuff we can afford to put in OOT bags. My question is when are you guys giving out your bags. We plan to have a cocktail party on the ship on embarkation day so I was planning to give them out them?

          I was either going to give them out at dinner on the first night or see if Guest Relations could get them put into the rooms for me.

          Is a rum runner just a flask? Or something different?

              Hi Ladies!

              I'm a fellow cruise bride. Getting married on Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Sea's on April 26! I'm getting so excited now that we are just a few months out.

              I just set up my first dress fitting so I'm starting to think about under garments. Anybody got theirs; if so, from where?

              I also have a question about the OOT bags. I have non-sailing guests and sailing guests. Are you ladies give the same OOT bags for both? Are you labeling the OOT bags with their names?

                Welcome! I haven't thought much about undergarments yet. As for OOT bags I have decided to do different ones for sailing vs nonsailing, most of the stuff will be the same but some things just don't apply to the nonsailing guests so I thought why not just save my money and not give stuff that they won't need/want.

                  Welcome Sarice (Love ur name). My Bridal Consultant told me to wear Spanx. I have a while until my wedding and I'm plannng to lose weight (but I'm not banking on it as I ordered my gown in my current size) before my wedding I guess it'll be based on what size I am them and wow much tummy I need to hold in. I have no desire to feel really uptight and uncomfy on my wedding day. I see your in Columbia I'm in Baltimore, but I got my gown at Columbia Bridal Boutique. You're like one of the first ppl I've seen in here from MD and so close lol. You can check out this place in Pikesville called We Fit where you take your gown with you and they find the perfect undergarments for you. I may have to go there bc I have a lil of everything hips, butt and boobs for day haha and FI is really big on me being conservative at the wedding.

                  I'm getting married on Lindquist Beach in St Thomas and II have guests who are cruising and then guest who are meeting me in St Thomas. Only the sailing guests are getting OOT bags for me. I'm kinda hoping that my nonsailing guest change their minds and sail tho.

                    Prettyhazardous, we got our dresses from the same place...how cool. So far so good with them; what about you? I'm just about to go in for my first fitting and I'm hoping things go well. I went we they were having a sample sell and bought the samlpe; no one had ever tried it on :-) I may try that place out for my undergarments.

                    I know what you mean about wanting the non-sailing guest to come along and sail (I posted to your vent thread). We're getting married on embarkation day so its not really required. The reason we didnt get married at one of the ports was to allow more of our guests to come.
