I think this will be it... I think... LOL. As long as I stop looking then I won't order more things. Oh, and I'll probably get scented candles or a scented plug in.

I'm doing a pre-oot bag (if it's a couple they will get 2 each and if it's a single person they will get one of):
- Set of luggage ID handle wraps
- Bubba kegs (they can bring them down with them if they want... plus I don't have to take them all with me)
- Inflatable travel neck pillows
- Pre-travel booklet (I'm putting one in each package with info about customs, the resort, who's coming, dress codes, currency, things to take, etc.)


For the OTT bags, every bag will contain:
- Welcome letter
- Wedding time line
- Clear Eyes
- Travel size of Q-Tips
- Tide To Go Stain remover
- Travel size of Purell hand sanitizer
- Travel Med Kit - includes travel sizes of: (2) Splinter Out, (4) Tylenol PM Extra Strength, (2) Bayer Aspirin, (2) Advil, (2) Benadryl, (2) Dramamine Chewable Formula, (1) Imodium, (2) Neosporin Ointment, (2) Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment, (2) Kendall Webcol Alcohol prep, (3) After Bite Insect sting relief wipe, (2) Banana Boat Sport Sunblock SPF30 (packet), (2) Natrapel 8 Hour Insect Repellent Wipes, (1) Icy Hot Medicated Patch, (1) Johnson & Johnson Band-Aid 8 pack, (1) Masune Single Use Cold Pack, (4) Tempa-DOT Single Use Thermometer

You guys are going to think Im completely crazy...but I dont have a dress yet. Well I had one but decided to forfeit my deposit on it. It was only 10%, and didnt fit in the budget anymore. I really wasnt that in love with it anymore either.

 

So now Im on the hunt for a dress. I went to Davids Bridal yesterday to try on a dress that I found someone selling on bravobride.com. They didnt have it in but I did fall in love with a different dress there. Its on sale for $200 off, but they wouldnt give me anymore of a deal with it being a sample. It needs a lot of work done to it..the beading is all messed up. But here it is...

Not to crazy after I see the picture now.

 

But than I found this tea length dress on ebay that I love. I feel thats so much more my style, but am unsure on pulling that off. I dont know what type of shoes I would wear in the sand...here it is...

I have never tried on a tea length dress so Im afraid I think it will look cute, but than will look ridlicious. lol

 

Any words of wisdom for me?

I would go back to David's Bridal and find a tea length dress and try it on, just to get a feel for how the style would look on you. You can probably find a wrap/shawl to try with it that would resemble the picture in the auction.

Either way you'll be a beautiful bride!

Ok - here are some pictures of my progress this weekend since our T-Shirts came in. This is also helping me organize for my upcoming planning thread :-)

 

T-Shirts, OOT Bag and guest goodies:

 

All the T-Shirts have our logo on the front and the back is customized with "mob,fob,mog,fog" and of course bride and groom for Brandon and I.

Ceremony Decor:

 

I'm going for a very simple, no frills wedding and I have very few guests so I was going to use the resorts set up until I saw it-it's hideous. So this is my solution. I still need to find a way to edge the organza and tie the bows but you get the idea. Blue and green are my accent colors so I'm going to make the bows smaller.

My DIY bamboo pillars:

(With help from Brandon)

 

The tape is still on, we're going to use a small gold marker to line them up to finalize them.

The bamboo poles are 6 foot in length. We cut them to 3 sections each and to hold them together used pvc pipe with duct tape (yes, I found a way to incorporate duct tape into my wedding-my Dad will be so proud!) to hold them together. When they are fit together they don't wiggle at all.

This is how we will tie them at the top to keep them in a tripod. The hemp cord is nearly invisible under the organza and easy to transport and wrap.

So it was a productive weekend :-)

I'm doing swizzle sick favours. I have light (cotton candy) and dark (blue rasperry) flavours and I think they're really cute. I'll post a pic when I get home.

Brandon designed the graphics with photoshop or something like that then we uploaded the image and they printed the shirts. I also ordered stickers from them and the OOT bags. We're happy with the results.

One comment-make sure the colors in your software display as they will print, we ordered a test run shirt and Brandon ended up going back in and adjusting a little bit.

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
