Hi!  I just visited Azul Sensatori and spoke with the Wedding Coordinators.  They said you CAN ship stuff to their Lomas Travel Offices in Mexico, however you typically have to pay a $80-$100 duty on it when you receive it (on top of what you paid to ship it!!).  They recommended bringing anything you'd like with you (definitely cheaper to check extra bags), especially since they said a lot of brides have had shipments show up weeks late.  Hope that helps!

Hey ladies!

Well it is nice to know I'm not alone in the financial stress in the family members dept!  We knew going into this that a lot of people wouldn't be able to join us and we were ok with that, but we didn't foresee all these other stressful situations concerning money and family.  Also my whole family booked and paid their deposits right away, his family is overdue - luckily the TA has given them an extension and fingers crossed they pay it in time - they are also the only ones who haven't paid their deposits back to us, so I'm out 1000 if they don't pay up.  A lesson learned for the future though, no more money to family unless it is an emergency, they are not financially responsible at all!  The sad thing is it should be our famililes, especially parents, making it easier for us, not more stressful! fryingpan.gif 

But you know what they say, you can't choose your family!  So best of luck to everyone dealing with family problems, and to future brides . .  . don't make deposits for family members!  If they want to come they can make their own, just say No!  Also thank goodness for this site and everyone's good advice!  bunny_4.gif

Also on a side note, I bought 30 sandalwood fans in chinatown for $30.  Anyone ever tried a craft with a wood burning tool?  Im wondering if I should try putting our initials and wedding date on them or just stick with a turqiouse bow and leave it at that.  Let me know if you have ever used one, or if you have heard any disasters with them for DIY favors lol.  Thanks!

Ahh, that is so maddening.  I wonder how everyone can get such different information all the time!  Thank you for letting me know.  I will check into it.  It's frustrating because we pay full price for them even though they don't drink, and they aren't allowed in LeChique.

Also, I see your questioning the first-aid kit...I had that on my original list, but since my OOT bag is including advil, tums, bandaids, etc...it seemed a separate first-aid kit might not be necessary. 

 

Lastly, there is a really great thread in the general section.  I think the title is "OOT Bags, what worked and what didnt".  Or something like that? 
 


 
 

 

Great idea!! What did you print on the sticker? What kind of pepto bismol did you buy and where did you get it?

and with OOT bag stuff.....i bought first aid kits and was able to just add ibuprofen, immodium, pepto bismol, and a roll of tums INTO the kit and then made a sticker on vistaprint to put on top of the kit!!  and yes, it all fit!!  :)

I  know how you feel, I got the thank you cards from Vista which i later turned into luggage tags i got my welcome brochures which look amazing and i my door hangers from Vista. I can't tell you how much i 've saved with Vista print and how easy it was for me.

This is how I got the tshirts for $4.50!  If you go through a different link, they show up $8.  Its so crazy!  If anyone is interested in the Ts, let me know and Ill see if I can send the link.

 

Then I found a way to order 100 post cards for free (just pay $6 shipping)...10 minutes later I went through the same link and ordered a different 100 for free again!

Ah, I'm starting to stress about carrying all this stuff down there, and the extra baggage fees!  I just looked at my parents flights and they will have to pay for their baggage, even the first bag!  So, that's $100 for them on the way down (including my daughter/niece) and then $80 on the way back through a different airline. 

 

Luckily, for FI an I, our first bag is free but we have to pay for the second.  I'm hoping we can get everything into four bags!!

i used pepto tablets and just put one strip of 6 tabs in each first aid kit.  pretty sure i got it on ebay.  basically you can buy 3 packs of the pepto boxes.  got my first aid kits and the dollar tree and used this sticker from vistaprint.  not sure this will work, but we will see......

    • 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. 
    • 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!
