Nov 08 brides

Recommended Posts

Oh I forgot.. I also ordered OOT stuff from OTC and a luau website. I don't have final numbers yet, but I figure 24 is a good average so I based what I bought on that number.. especially since OTC stuff is sold in dozens. Heh.


And an FYI.. I have NEVER scrapbooked before. I have no idea how creative I can/will be so this is going to be a huge different project for me to accomplish.. hopefully it doesn't look too cheesy.. haha

Carrie a $1 per bag to be screen printed is really good, you got a whole bunch of family connections. thats great
I'm trying to talk him into getting on the forum! I gave him the link and he looked around. I'll post pics of my bags once they are done. I figure he can work up some price that is good for everyone and maybe do some printing for all the brides to be. He has his own equipment but no "official" business yet.

He should definately join the forum when he's ready. He could get a ton of business on here, especially since he did your bags, and i'm sure you'll post how great yours came out.

My new mantra is One day at a time...one thing at a time.


I went to the doctor to tell her how frazzled I felt all the time, she said make a list and make your goal to be one thing to get done at a time. It can get overwhelming!

I got started on stuff right away while I was on Mat leave so I wouldn't get frazzled trying to do it all after going back to work. I am so glad I started early, since I still have a lot to do, but I have a lot done. Well, I have to go and get measured to order my dress and my daughters dress now!!! One more thing to tick off.

Crossed two things off my list last night - went for my first fitting and found my veil! My sister (MOH) got her dress so that is another thing done!


I also found this great site for cups with a custom logo - Spirit Supply Store. You only have to order a minimum of 50 and they are $1.30 each with free shipping and your logo on both sides.


I will let you know how those turn out!

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
