I think its also nice to have a little something from the country you're living in. Im in Korea, and was thinking about taking some stuff from here. You should take advantage of the cheapness that is china!

I change my mind like you wouldn't believe so I could end up with the mother of all OOT bags yet.

Did you chose a photographer yet? Im thinking about going with Moments that Matter.

Hi Everyone

 

This may have already been answered but to save me searching, has anyone had their hair and makeup done at the Cat?

 

I've read a bit about the hairdresser but no mention about makeup.

 

I had a trial done in the UK last week and she made me look amazing, there is noway i could do my makeup myself that well

 

Thanks

 

Sally

Yep... I know the feeling. The list of items I have are over a page long. I have to start narrowing them down! Look at this list! I think I'm out of control...

Hand sanitizer
Sunscreen
Can coozies
Granola bars
Ibuprofen
Aloe
Disposable Camera
Picture of us
Chocolate Kisses (with stickers on bottom – E & M 2.10.10)
Candles
Crackers/Cookies
Ear plugs
Eye masks
Deck of cards
Seed favors
Tissues
Candy – fireballs, Tootsie Rolls, Laffy Taffy, etc.
Bottled Water?
Hand Lotion (Bath and Body Works)
Gum
Manicure kit
Luggage tags
Mints
Tea
Chinese fans w/monogrammed “M” tag (to be used at the ceremony) Have someone hand them out.
Map of Mexico highlights/Welcome Brochure
Insulated cups imprinted with “Meyer Wedding 2010”
Shot glasses with “Meyer Wedding 2.10.2010”
SPECIAL BAGS for kids
Crayons
Toys
Inflatable beach balls/rafts

I know... over the top huh?!?! It's fun coming up with the ideas... now it's time to cut the list in half. If I don't do that I will be buying an extra seat on the plane for the "OOT" bags!!! :)

We visited Korea in January and it reminded me of China. I bought quite a few souvenirs. I have been buying post cards from every place we visit and I plan on making one of those postcard guest books. Having all the guests fill out one postcard each and then having them bound into a book so we can always remember it!

I haven't even looked into Photographers yet! The girl that is doing our engagement pictures was asking if we had a photographer yet for our wedding. I would love to bring her but it would be too expensive b/c she requires us to pay her way + photo packages. sad.gif As far as make up/hair goes, I haven't even looked into that either. OMG.. I have a lot of planning to do! Yikes!

Meyerbe, Dont worry. My list is just as long...lol. I could imagine how much luggage I am going to have :)

 

CatBride09 - I have asked the same question, but I haven't heard of a single member who have used them for makeup sad.gif I'm going to take my chances anyway cause I stink with putting on makeup and so do all my friends..lol...I'm just planning on taking pics for reference so she knows the look I'm going for.

I paid around $75 for my hair. She came right to my room, too. I have had many updos & I thought she was great.

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • 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?
