I'll be honest, I'm a little concerned about someone using it a few days before me, since it would be traveling to Canada when she mails it to me. I've seen things get hung up in customs for a while. I'm fine with her being added to the list though.

 

I'm able to mail the starfish back out the day after I get home on the 7th so if whoever would like it after me, if they think it's enough time to get to them, I'm fine with that as well.

I'm on the list after you and we don't leave for Mexico till the 21st. Plus I'm in Vancouver so there is plenty of time for you to send it to me. I'll DM you with details. :)

I totally understand this. To the bride that wanted to be before DWbridetobe (I'm too lazy to scroll back and find the name) please PM her and see if the shipping time works out. I can't add you until I hear back that its ok.

Hi JanineA,  just letting you know my travel dates are through June 29th, not the 26th.  Just so you know I will be able to mail him out the June 30th at earliest!  The person following me as of now isn't until August, so it should be good!  Thanks again.  I love you idea of the year thing.  I may get one too to join your little guy in my bouquet on my wedding day and have my own to send off for a year!  So I can be both a part of an existing tradition and have my on keepsake for later. 

 

Ladies, if I do decide that, I'll let you all know when so you can request (won't be for a while as I'm broke)!

Janine's blue starfish List showing bride, wedding date, dates of travel and destination:

JanineA Nov. 13th 2010 (Nov 10-Nov 15 -Turks&Caicos)
MrsJ2011 Jan. 2nd 2011 (Dec 31-Jan 8 - Jamaica)
Hzak1203 Mar. 29 2011 (Mar 28-Apr 4 - Key West)
Katelynn May 3rd 2011 (Apr 30-May 7 - Jamaica)

SouthernSweetie June11th 2011 (Moon Palace, Cancun)
Peterpanpixiedust June 18th, 2011 (Jun 14-Jun 26 - Cancun)
AishaB Aug. 21st 2011 (Aug19-Aug22 - Cape May)
Clgriffi7 Nov. 2011 (Nov 4-Nov 13 - Riviera Maya)

 

For the ladies already on the list please be sure to make a note of who is listed after you, please stay in touch with that bride (I would advise getting a home e-mail, mailing address and a phone number if possible) so that you can pass the starfish along in time for the next bride to get it. Please remember that this tradition relies on the honor system. We trust and have faith that every bride that has chosen to participate will do so responsibly and effectively. If you are unable to fulfill the rules of passing along the starfish and the journal please do not participate and allow someone else the opportunity to.

If anyone else would like to be added to my blue starfish passing list please pm me with the details of your wedding date, travel dates and your destination. I'll be more than happy to add you. Please note that Clgriffi7 will be the last person on the list. Thanks ladies!

As our leave date is only 12 days away (we are now leaving the 19th instead of the 20th) I wanted to get the next brides address before it gets even more hectic for us with last minute things and it slips my mind to do so before im gone but idk if i should be getting DWbridetobe's address since she is after me or if we will be adding Kathie to the list?

I think you should get both Cindx, and maybe while you are PMing Kathie you can ask her to confirm with DWbridetobe that shipping will work out? Lemme know how it goes. Thanks!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
