By the way not sure you may know this but to post pictures here on the forum there is a great site called TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting. You upload your image and than just copy the code into your post where it says IMG code for forums etc. I did not know this until a few months ago lol. I can't remember who but it was actually a bride from the royal that showed me how :)

I agree I think things are really still a bit crazy. They are probably starting to get the brides sorted out whose weddings are coming up. However how long can the excuse of being hectic keep coming up? I would def give them a call the way ChicagoBride did and take it from there. At least than you can get the link to that website and upload all your stuff.
Thanks! I was wondering how to post those pics!

I really liked them. Plus they were really efficent and I was able to get my video and album very quickly.
I think the most important thing about the welcome bags that I found out was to include a program of what will be going on that weekend (even if its just about the actual ceremony and who people are in the wedding).
We also went to the local MEGA store (kinda like a Target) and found lots of snacks and goodies to put into the bags. I bought some stuff at home and brought it with me (chapstick, bandaids, tums etc..) but the fun stuff we found at MEGA - my guests LOVED the candy and cookies we put in. Everyone used it. We also bought juice boxes that people could use as mixers for drinks to make in the room.
My husbands grandmother made all my OOT bags for me - really nice large fabric bags lined with large handles that people could swing over their shoulders and use as beach bags. All the girls used theirs all week, even though they brought beach bags to use! :)
hope that helps!
I have pics but I am at work, and don't have access to them right now.
Good luck!
Shannon
Thanks so much for the info! I feel a lot better now about using their hair/makeup pros and photograher. Great ideas for the gift bags too!

Thanks Shannon! All helpful info :) Quick question though, of all the maps out there I've seen, I've been trying to figure out how far the MEGA store is from the Royal and a general idea of how to get there. Can you give us an idea and maybe some quick directions?

The Mega is walking distance. I think it was closer than Walmart. The people at the hotel will give you a map and show you. But it was an easy walk.
IT was SOO much nicer than Walmart. Cheaper too! Walmart was dirty.
But the Mega is a full grocery store too. I got tons of stuff there, but I did find that hardly any of the workers there spoke English, so asking for hand sanitizer (it was during the swine flu) was impossible. I knew some spanish but not enough!! My Husband bought lots of different kinds of hot sauce there and gave some to his groomsman - they loved it!

I really like the PDC but I'm worried about how crowded it is and having "stragglers" in the background of my ceremony photos. Is it really as bad as it looks in some of the photos?

Thanks so much for that info Shannon! I know where I'll be visiting those few pre-wedding days!

 

Past brides- how long was the song you walked down the aisle to? I've found a few but I'm afraid of the length of the aisle and I don't want to run out of music on my way down.

Please don't let that affect your decision if you really like it, especially with the wonders of photoshop. I know a lot of photographers will do this for you, but if not, you can always find a friend (or do it yourself) :-). P.S there is this free one called Fx Photo and it's amazing....

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?
