Ha, sorry...yes,my username is Lucy106 (my first dog who died and my FI badge number) but my real name is Stephanie. Sorry for the confusion!

No my MOH is not wearing flowers in her hair and neither are my FGs. Oh decisions decisions.

How did you guys order OOT without a totally final count, just order a little extra?

We were looking for bags to use for the OOT bags at Dollarama a couple of weeks ago. When we were walking through found these light little mess-like bags that have a drawstring top. Although were don't have a final count (I last checked 1 month ago and there were 20) we grabbed 30. We decided on 30 because if there are more than 30 people, each couple will get a bag and then we will just add the individual items for each person.

 

I got really nice beach totes for my MOH and BM though from Old Navy for $10 each and my cousin is going to do the embroidery on them.

Since they aren't doing any flowers - I say go for whatever makes ya feel good! With our OOT bags, I ordered 1 per couple and one per single. I ordered about 10 extra for those who haven't committed. If we have left overs, I'll give one to my sis who couldn't make it, or my grandma who couldn't make it.

Guess whathuh.gif.........I just ordered a butt load of stuff!

I got an OT order in for maraca pens and kids b-day stuff, I ordered my blumeboxes, and I ordered my teal ribbon!

YAY - once everything comes in I can start on my DIY projects. smile159.gif

Phewww...what a load off! No more spending money for me! Alls I have to do it send my program order to Kinko's and I'll be good for now. I think I'll do that tomorrow since I took the day off!

I'm logging off for now so I can get some work done before I get fired! embarrassed.gif

I figured that if there are any left over OOT bag stuff, we can give them to some special people who couldn't make it, or even as part of a Thank You gift to people that help us out some how but don't go.

all of our guests are booked, but we ordered like maybe 5 of each item extra just in case anyone else decides to book. there are somethings that we only have just enough of like rafts but i figure if some other people join i won't give the people there for only a couple days vs a week a raft, hopefully they'll never know. i'm not about to go out and buy anymore rafts, i've spent way too much on oot bags as it is. fi will freak if i buy anything else (which i'm dying too).

All of your guests are BOOKED?!??! WOW!!!!! That is incredible!!! The only people booked for mine are me & FI, my parents, and my uncle and his family! FI's parents haven't even signed up yet!

 

Congratulations!! That has to feel great! I still have no idea what our turnout will be!

That is amazing. So far besides our little family of 4, we have my parents and sister, my MOH & her Mom, my Aunt & Uncle, FI BM & his gf, 2 of my co-workers & their husbands, my Mom's BF and her soon-to-be ex-husband, and one of my Mom's good friends.

That sounds like a lot writing it down, but there are more that are supposed to be coming and just haven't booked yet, so we will see. Still no one from FI family to book and one of his brothers is supposed to be standing up for him.

WOW.. all your people are booked already? Yikes. So far all we have is me and FI, both sets of parents, my sister and my MOH and our other friend. Ha. My other BM still has to book even, and the best man! Crikey. Plus some other close friends who we know will be coming.. I'm getting impatient though.. cause I want to get numbers for my OOT bags.. heh

Among those who still need to book are 2 BM, and 2 GM. There is a possibility that one of the BM won't be able to make it, but that won't mess things up. If both BM do come, then we will ask another friend of my FI to be GM as well and even things out.

It would be nice to know what is happening though so we can ask someone if we need to or not.

Well, for our AHR, the caterer did cut us a deal since FI's mom works at the church where we are having it and they are one of the caterers that they use frequently. (Plus, I think FI's aunt is good friends with the owner's parents.) They normally charge $31 pp ($5 pp goes to the church, but the priest waved it for us because of FI's mom). So we started off at $26 pp but then they offer $2 off per person for having it in December. They made us an offer of $20 per person with bar setup (normally that is $5/pp). We will still have to provide the booze but that helps quite a bit. It better be fun! Practically everyone we know is invited.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
