We had 80 guests so we just asked a few people to bring them. I had a friend who spoke spanish lead the way in case there was any language issues. No problems whatsoever.

None of the links that were posted work...they all direct me back to the main forum. Does anyone know why that happens??

 

I'm so worried about this custom issue because I have $400 worth of beach towels, a $300 aisle runner, and a ton of other stuff I'm bringing down such as shot glasses, flip flops, tote bags, etc... I have receipts but since I'm splitting everything up between my FI, my mom and my luggage I don't know if should just make up fake receipts? Obviously wouldn't make sense for each of us to carry receipts for the full value if we're splitting up the stuff... anyone know?

Yeah not sure why the links don't work anymore. You'll have to use the search button and look for those threads with the receipt templates. But yes make fake receipts and distribute them among your guests. We had well over $1000 worth of extra crap that we brought and we split it up amongst our guests and gave them their own receipt to keep it simple.

 

If you can't find those links just use MS excel to make up some fake tally. Make sure to keep it less than $300 per person. I severely downplayed the costs of everything on my receipts. For example for all the contents of our OOT bags, they cost around $5/bag but we just made it around $0.90/bag.

OMG! I'm glad I read this post... I had no idea about the receipts so I'll make sure to save mine when I get my stuff or I might just fake them.

Thanks for organizing all this info!!

I went around and gathered up all of my receipts! I am impressed (patting myself on the back, lol) with how many I still have. Usually I throw those things out immediately.

I have read in other places that girls made "fake receipts". You could just make something that looks like an emailed receipt. I ordered a lot of stuff offline so some of mine are just a printed piece of paper from my email. (easy to duplicate)

    • 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.
