Cracked the casing, ruined it, ruined the memory card, everything. And the store wouldn't take it back because I'd taken it to about 12 feet. A deep swimming pool can actually damage it.

You're much better off with the casing that Jean Marcus suggests - it will go to 25-50 feet depending what you buy, which is good enough for any snorkeling, and if you get a 50-footer should work for shallow scuba trips.
im gonna have to let a friend of mine knows who just got one of those... i dont think she has taken it swiming or anything yet. mainly we just have fun with it by throwing it in someones drink at a party haha

Olympus Stylus 790SW 7.1MP Waterproof Digital Camera with Dual Image Stabilized 3x Optical Zoom (Orange)
7.1-megapixel CCD captures enough detail for photo-quality 15 x 20-inch prints
2.5-inch HyperCrystal LCD screen minimizes glare
3x optical zoom; Face Detection technology
Waterproof (down to 10 feet), freeze-proof, and crush-proof design
27 Shooting modes; in-camera editing options
Just an aside (don't mean to hijack), but I just wanted to say you should be very happy with your Olympus. I'm on my third Olympus camera (keep upgrading, I'm a bit of a photo nut), and have no complaints whatsoever.

We got disposable waterproof cameras for our OOT bags. At Kmart I think. They were probably $12 each but we have very few people coming to our wedding so we only had to buy 4 or 5. Don't know how good the pictures will be. I think we got cameras like this when we went to Hawaii a few years ago and the pictures were fine. I have a feeling FI 11 year old neice will be the one using them the most. cheer2.gif

i havent heard very reliable things about those bags.. they are difficult to operate and well. i just dont trust a bag when it comes to going underwater...

just make sure you get the one that fits your exact model number or it wont fit at all in there :)

I've never had much success with those disposable ones...I've heard the best thing to buy one of the waterproof cases for your digital camera.

 

I'm going to look into those soon, anyone know of any good ones?

    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)
