    I bought a ton of travel sized items (purel, sunscreen, chap stick, lotion) from Target for .97 each this past weekend. That's the cheapest I have found it anywhere.

I am still not sure how many people we will have. Right now it is 24 but could easily be over 35 by the end of it. If so I will have to go buy more bags and fillings for the OOT. I can't believe how fast it is coming! YAY! We are having our legal ceremony on 8-8-8. I need to figure out what we are going to do for that. Are you girls doing the Boudoir pics? I am thinking of doing them this month sometime. If I can get a freakin' tan with as much as I have been running around I have let that slip.
      I'm such a dork, I totally forgot about the wedding party's attire!! I'm pretty much telling them the color and style of clothing to wear, but they are not wearing the same thing. It's just our brothers and sisters in the wedding party, so I'm sure it hasn't slipped their minds like it has mine!

      I'm not sure if I'm taking bourdoir pics. Our wedding budget has had to expand since we budgeted for about 30 guests and now we have close to 50so I may not have the $$ to spend on the pics. Good luck if you decide to take them!

        Cool, I'll have to checkout Target today. I didn't want to order more items online because I would have to order a minumum amount when I only need a few items plus pay for shipping. That would be way too expensive!

          I just went to Victoria secrets. They have these beach bags that say Angel on them. They have a few sample products in them as well, for ten bucks. I bought a few for my bridesmaids. So I have their bags, I got them some lotion and some custom perfume I made online. I am getting them necklaces and a pink flask. Oh and their dresses. Anything I am missing?

                That makes me feel just a little bit better, but I can't seem to find any shoes. Sho my FI is taking me to the city this weekend in hopes to find the perfect shoes. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. I haven't bought anything to pack yet. I need bathing suits,trinkets, make up( don't know who is doing make up in Mexico and I don't want to look like a clown), hair and so on. I have to pack for myself and my two girls. I also have to get the things for the favors and OOT bags to Mex, w/out a hitch. Also, trying to tone daily and diet for the big day. GRRRRRRR!!!!!
                Doing my best not to stress... I am thankful for this forum....

                  Let me know if I can help you out. I just got my shoes yesterday. I found them at Davids Bridal they are super cute. Just take deep breaths and do what you can do. Nobody is going to miss anything if you don't get it done ya know?

                  I just ordered a big lot of luggage locks off of ebay. There was a hundred of them I figured I would just sell the what I don't use. If any of you girls want some let me know... I should have around 40 left over. I already promised some of them to another girl. I don't know the quality of them but I should have them in the mail by the beginning of next week.

                    Are you allowed to use luggage locks? Everytime I fly they tell me that if I have a lock on my bag they'll cut it off to get inside so I haven't used one in many years.

                      No, you can't use them while you fly but once you are at the hotel you can use them to try and keep the housekeepers out of your stuff. Some hotels have reported problems with things going missing. Just like any hotel. Just a precaution.
