They used to let you use more than one but I think they cracked down on that.
I actually go through my UPROMISE account for extra coupon codes, although they only let me use one coupon code yesterday. They let me use that and gave me free shipping. UPROMISE sounds like they have a similar deal with a bonus kickback. BTW, If you are not familiar with UPROMISE, you ought to check it our if you are planning on having kids. (If you are not having your own children, you can dedicate to nieces, nephews, or anyone you chose) UPROMISE not only gets you discounts and things, they also throw a percentage of your sale back into an account you can dedicate for someones college one day, some companies are up to 10%. Sephora is 3% of the sale plus you get the coupons. I forget how much Victoria Secret is but they let you use several coupon codes.

Sorry if off topic... just had to share! HAHA!!

The one thing I do recommend is to bring your own lipstick. If not, she'll want to use a tube of her own (with no brush or anything). I turned down this option. :)

FYI ~ for anyone else doing the civil ceremony. The blood test at MP was fine, he used new and different needles for us and it was quick and painless.

Thanks for the input! I started freaking about the blood tests. I'm still wondering if we should get married here and keep it quiet for everyone else. I mentioned it to my FI and told me to relax....

I've been searching for a hairstyle forever now and not having any luck. I am good friends with my hairdresser and she suggested just coming in for a trial and she would figure it out. Once we decide she will take it all out and we're snapping pictures as she does it. :) I will just go in midday so she's not slammed. Now if I could only find a hair piece that I like!

We will be there from July 5th through July 16th. I think Nina (Nibsmom) is coming in a day or so after you. You two share the same wedding day.

That was great you fell into the category you could get all free events. We did at first, but economy, violence in Mexico, and the swine flu dropped us down to 61 nights.

What time is your wedding? Your other events that day?

my wedding is at 5pm. Cocktail party Thursday night is @ 7, and the rehearsal is @ 7 as well. Hopefully it's cool enough. I told people I would kill them if they canceled, haha JK. Everyone was on board and we never had any real threats of anyone canceling their trip, it's all really close fam and friends. I ended up booking the deluxe wedding pkg, they let me take the one they had posted before the changes. WTH was with that anyway? They didn't even warn anyone. And who wants fireworks during broad daylight?

 

Even though I am not thrilled about the carriage, I hate being the center of attention, my MIL wanted me to get it and it beats walking or taking a golf cart i guess. Against my better judgment, we are also getting the Mariachi band- my fiance really wants it. I am sure it'll be fine, I just always dreamed of violins as a little girl.

We have the Deluxe package also. I am so glad we signed the contract before they changed them. We are also getting the Mariachi band. It was FI idea but I really like it too.

They actually weren't going to allow us to choose the original pkg, we had to fight a little for it. I have been planning this since September, and I am soo ready to be there. I can't imagine brides who plan for 2 years, I would go nuts!

I am glad you got the package you wanted. I just feel there are so many benefits to ours verses the new ones. They were cheaper and included services like the manicur, pedicure, holistic spa for both (100 mins - we have ours booked for Friday afternoon), the wedding dress pressing, and choice of music. AND don't forget two MP robes... HA!!

 

I think it is a great deal.

    • 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?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
