wiring money

Recommended Posts

did anyone else feel weird wiring money?...

I just finished wiring money and I did sort of feel like I was sending money to the land of no return....any feedback to put me at ease?

 

I sent it to Paulina for photography, so I know it's safe. I scratched out my bank account number but left the transfer confirmation number.

I guess I'm just anxious to get a confirmation back from her, but I am excited to have that checked off my list so early on.

I was surprised, today it was easy. A while ago, I started a new account at Wells Fargo and tried to wire money to Dreams and it was such a hassle!!! But today, I wired it from my bank, WaMu and it was FREE and easy! It is a pain, but once it's done, it feels great to have another thing checked off!

Hey Jill...

I wired money to Rebeca at Dreams last week to book my wedding and I felt the same way! I emailed her 3x because I was like ummm..I am a little nervous that $500 is just floating around somewhere! And it took her days to finally get my confirmation from accounting. She kept saying dont worry about it I was like ummm, $500 bucks I am sorry I am a little worried and I want a Confirmation! I was the Same way....but I def didnt want to give out my debit card information for SURE!

 

Good Luck girly!

This may not make you feel at ease but its not different that doing a wire transfer to anybody in the world. You MUST know where its going or once it has been sent it will be gone. For the most part, WT are a big hassle and I personally hate them. Also, being a expat in Mexico... no banks here will allow me to use their services or even take out money with my cards from back home. I am forced to use bank machines or transfer money into local accounts.

Best of luck with all your plans.

I used to work at a bank and dealth with wires all the time, so it doesn't bother me at all. Tons of my wedding stuff is being paid by wire transfer.

 

I had some customers give the wrong information before. The wire would just reject and need to be resent with the right info. If someone is saying that the money is gone and there's no confirmation to where it has gone, you're getting scammed.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • 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!
