LOL Sharon.  I did the same thing.  It is always business-related things so I need to figure out how to translate that into what I need for my wedding!

These are such great tips... I'll have to pass them along to my sister-in-law, who's getting married next spring!

We got married in Spain in March of this year, and we had to cut back on a few things to afford the costs of flying to the destination itself.

This is great!!!  I almost never buy something if it's not on sale OR I have a coupon for it!!!  Also, I didn't know about Vistaprint until I found this site and it definitely has been my best friend!!   Thanks for all your tips! :)

These are really great tips... We are trying to save money where ever we can.  I am a little worried about shipping (centerpiece) things down to Mexico though vs. not having to worry about it and just buying through the resort.  What is everyone else's feelings on bringing items down?

JBailey - if there is a Wal-Mart or something similar nearby where you can buy some items then you don't have to ship them or carry them down yourself.  I know other brides have done this before with great success.

    • 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 :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
