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.



 Thank you!!

Hey girls,

 

For those of you who are married, how early did you get your hair/make up done?  Or for girls getting married, what are you thinking?  My ceremony is at 5 and I want like an hour before to get some pics with my daughter, mom and bridesmaids.

  • 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!!

Our wedding was at 3pm. I had my hairdresser with me, and she did our hair and makeup (so 4 of us total) We started at 10am-ish and I think we were done by about 1:30pm. It was a nice relaxing set up. Had breakfast with all my girlfriends at 9am, and then we ordered room service for lunch! Don't forget to eat LOL!

Just need to vent for a second.....So..FI calls me today and tells me that he just talked to his mom....she said that she been talking to her sisters and neices and nepher (so FI's aunts and cousins) and they, at this point, don't think they will be able to come to the wedding. 

FI has been telling me from Day Freaking 1 that his family are all travelers and they would for sure be there at this can't miss event....wheras I was constantly saying...nope...they're not coming so I would rather not invite all these people and keep it super small and leave it at that.

 

So...part if the reason I did a group agreement was for all this family that FI was so freaking sure would be coming....now I'm getting nervous that we'll have to pay the penatlies for all the rooms we don't fill (luckily we didn't do a huge group agreement..only 16 rooms...but still)

 

Also...his mom was saying that they don't even know if they can afford to go....and she would rather just give us whatever $$$ they have and use it towards the wedding.....

is it wrong that I'm totally ok with that?

I feel bad for FI...but seriously...you've now known about the wedding since last July (7 months ago) and you had to know that one day your son would be getting married (not even talking to me...just in general) so...how have you not been saving AT ALL for this????

 

Done venting.....

I know I have my mom and my 2 friends coming and I'm good (I've been saying that since the beginning...as long as my mom and my friend Dawn are there...I'm happy)

 

I just think FI had unrealistic expectations from the very beginning....and we've heard nothing from his Dad either (they're divorced).  You would think his parents would be there....but...whatever.....

Now..I'm really done venting :)

I've had a similar experience. My Family booked and my FI family keep putting it off or say they can't come. It is my opinion that its just not as important to FI family cause his the son.

 

Ive come to the conclusion if it was just me and my FI on a beach i would be happy. Its just a bonus that some of my own family will be there.

 

Im sure it will work itself out. And im sure you will have a wonderful day anyway. x

Hey everyone!


I'm new to this site but have loved everything that I've read so far. SO helpful that we're all getting married at the same location!

 

I'm getting married April 3rd. Our cocktail hour is at Palapa Yoga and then our reception is at Plaza Zavaz. I'm curious if people are decorating both their cocktail location as well as their reception location or just their reception area.

 

Also, I'm planning on doing paper lanterns & white Christmas lights. For those of you who are doing similar, can you tell me how many lanterns & strands of lights you bought?

 

Thanks,
Shanna

    • 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. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
