Hey ladies I just wanted to post this little find. I was michaels yesterday and in their 1.50 bins they had these packs of thank you cards. There are 6 cards and envelopes per pack and different styles to choose from. I picked up 2 packs just for leaving my tips to the WC, vendors and staff serving my wedding.

 

400

That's a cute idea! I haven't thought about tips yet!

I noticed about 3 months before departure that the rates for our week and resort had dropped below the EBD and group rate (wtf?! 30 people were booked well in advance you'd think you would be given a better deal for that) so I called in to see what could be done. They offered me a one time pricing adjustment. Worth a try if your find the price drops significantly. It worked out to be about $75/pp - $150 a couple which isn't bad.

Any type of credit is better than none at all good idea!!

SusanMike2013 - who is your travel agent? I'm getting a bit frustrated with my current travel agent and company that I am working with, and am starting to think that I should consider others.  Would you mind PM'ing me the information?

I found this great site for sunblock, lipbalm and all sorts of small beach pacakges for OOT bags... I've inquired about prices since it is not listed on the site.  Only thing is that most items require 100 minimum... i'm going to need atleast 50 items.

I didn't know they could hold stuff for you - that's a great tip, thanks! This may come in handy if/when their summer tote bags come out.
I didn't know that! Thanks.

Hi KDoyle,

 

I am travelling with Sunwing next month  ( I booked last year) but I was able to recieve the upgrade and voucher...

I was never told of any certain dates to travel or book....

SusanMike2013- have you received your voucher? We have travelled already and are having trouble getting any info from Sunwing. Our travel agent isn't getting back to me either! when I called Sunwing they said the voucher would be in our e-docs, but it was not. I am a little disapointed as I am already itching to go back to Jamaica!

We ended up buying the box of 48 pepto tablets, but they come in sheets of 6. We gave one sheet to each person and they went over well...we got them at either shoppers or walmart...
Thanks AquaCait!

Ladies! Where did you get the plastic bags for your wedding week survival kits? I bought super small ones at Dollarama thinking I would use two, but my aloe is fairly large! I don't want them as big as a large freezer bag, but not as small as those craft ones at Dollarama. Help! :)

    • 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.
