This is a great idea. I may switch my idea of doing beach towels and do tshirts instead. You could do different colors for the younger generation like one color for the guys and a different colors for girls. Just a thought, they look great though.

oh, and..."J'aime Talis" means "I Love Talis" in french...so its not a typo :)

Hello Everyone!

 

I am working on my OOT bags and was wondering what everyone is putting in their bags?? Here is what I have so far...Each item is costing me less than $1 except for a few of the floats. 

 

  • Floats
  • Personalized Chap Sticks
  • Personalized Koozies
  • Deck of cards
  • Advil packs
  • Aloe Vera After-sun lotion  (still looking for a good deal on these....If anyone has already bought these let me know)
  • Postcards with photos of our resort for our guests to send back home (We are making these on VistaPrint and we thinking about adding a stamp to one?)
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Packs of gum
  • Sweet & Salty Mix with nuts, chocolate and raisins
  • Fruit snacks
  • Shout Wipes (Still looking for a good deal on these...If anyone has already bought these let me know)
  • Loofahs
  • Nail files
  • Small fold-up brush with a mirror
  • Pepto Bismol (Still looking for a good deal on these...If anyone has already bought these let me know)
  • First Aid Kits (Still thinking if we really need these)
  • Welcome letter
  • Itinerary/Schedule of Wedding Events
  • List of activities the hotel offers

 

Below is my inspiration for my bags from another BDW bride...I love them and think they are so cute!  I already made a similar photo postcard on VistaPrint that says "Welcome to Mexico!" on it and I will be attaching it to the bad just like the example below.  The bags are only going to cost about $3 per bag.

Looking forward to hearing from everyone!!

Oooh...I forgot about the international stamp thing.  I'm using post cards in lieu of a guest book.  I'm going to make a variety of post cards and put them in everyone's bags and ask them to write us a note when they get home.  So in the end we will (or hopefully we will) have a mixture of photos with everyone's notes on them by the time we get home from our honeymoon! 

 

I'm hoping we get a better outcome with these than with the RSVPs (hoping everyone is still on a high from the vacation or something!). 

 

I forgot I need to get ahold of canadian stamps for all of our canadian guests!  Anyone in the states know how to get canadian stamps?  And how many would it take to mail a postcard from Canada to US?

I love the postcard idea, I hadn't thought of that! Make sure to stamp with international stamp, yeah?

I went in looking for lace with straps and found a good option in that style (first pic) but then fell in love with a flowy dress at the second store, it was so comfortable (2nd pic) and fun. I'm torn between styles and think I need another round. It was an enlightening (and a little overwhelming) experience, wow, there are so many different dresses out there!!!!

 

 Both the dresses are beautiful! Take your time, go back and decided which one makes you feel beautiful. I love the lace (I had a lace dress myself- good thing: it travels really well! I just hung it up in the closet and it was perfect) Love the second dress for the very dreamy skirt! Good luck with your choice :)

 Love the idea of big sparkly earrings! I had a fairly large turquoise set that matched my shoes :)

The boudoir shoot sounds like a great idea! I love the idea of the bridal one with you veil and the Ravens one! My FI is a huge Broncos fan and I think thats a very cute idea! What are you going to do with the photos? 

 

Are there any of the other brides out there that have done a boudoir shoot? What did you FI think of the photos?

 

 

Can you email me these too?  My email is melissafaybik@gmail.com

 

Thanks!!

 

I did a boudoir session, and my husband was thrilled to get the surprise gift just before we got married. Our photographer caught his reaction....and all I can say is....So worth every penny!

 

I will also send you some of the templates tomorrow for welcome booklets to help you with ideas!

The shoot comes with a little black book that I can give my Fiance the day of our wedding.  Like Murmel said, I don't think he would expect something like that so his face will be priceless!!  Plus, I've worked really hard to get in the best shape so I think it will be nice to document my hard work before I have more kids.  :o

I tried on your second dress a few times and loved it but ended up deciding on something more fitted with lace. FYI: I was going to make the neckline a sweetheart neckline and it looks really cute on that dress!  Good Luck!
 



 

Can you email me these too?  My email is melissafaybik@gmail.com

 

Thanks!!
 



  


 


I quoted Marla's comment but it didn't show up.  Congrats on picking your dress!!  So exciting!!

 I had to get everything sent to Canada so it was more expensive. But try these places for some of the above:

Pepto Bismol (ebay) (we ended up buying single dose packs of Immodium from an ebay dealer called: barginsdelivered. They were very helpful, and based in the US, so it should be really cheap for you)

Shout wipes. Try a site called http://www.minimus.biz/ They have an amazing selection of everything travel related. Super for those of you in the US, the shipping to Canada made it too expensive.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
