Congrats on getting a bag packed and out of the house already, Erin! I was just talking to my brother yesterday about taking some of our mugs down- he thinks he'll only need one suitcase so I may end up packing another one for him. My MOH is going to take some of my favours down with her, too. It's nice to be able to lighten the load a little bit, isn't it?

Wow, some of you are super organized! I still have some shopping to do, mainly summer dresses (not a lot in stores right now), and bathing suits. I won't start on packing stuff till the week before, the house is already such a mess, don't want to add more... (I'm trying to finish a big renovation at the same time, just chose some tile over the week-end. We will only install it after the trip though). I'm allowed 2 * 44 pounds suitcases, but it should all fit in one, since we won't bring all the decor and OOT you are. Don't know how you can do it with only one, huge challenge! You should definitely take advantage of your family & guest and give them things to bring.

 

My stress is with all the things I want to carry-on: wedding dress, our DSLR camera bag, a small duffel with "in-flight" items, and my little rolling 19" suitcase. Now I need to fit so much in there: hairdryer, flat iron, his wedding clothes & shoes, his electric shaver, my dress sandals, make-up, jewelry. I usually have our suits and one change of clothes+underwear in there, just in case, but I'm not sure it will fit. Big puzzle in perspective, and we'll have our hands full moving around at the airport.

I haven't packed much yet but I do have a wedding section in the spare room closet where I've been keeping everything together so nothing gets left behind. I went through my summer clothes last month and put the things that I want to bring in a suitcase along with all of my swimsuits but it's not really packed properly yet. I think I'll start packing the weekend before we leave, and finish up the day before we go (I'm off work that day). I'm still trying to decide what to take as carry on and what to pack, also. Is anyone having their FI take his suit/wedding clothes as carry on? I think I'd like to do that- it would be bad if our luggage went missing or was delayed and he had nothing to wear.

I was thinking of getting him to bring his suit as a carry on, but then I said to myself ' who's going to carry my 2 dresses' and also figured there is a iron in all the rooms, make him work a little to marry me and get him just to iron the day of the wedding.
LOL I'm sooo bad!

wow love your list,

Made me remember my sand kit!!!

Chair shash is included in my package, I forgot for a second.

Me too, 2 pairs of shoes, one for sand one for reception.

That is to funny, the eggs filled with candy, that is just way to darn cute, I am sure the guest will def get a kick out of it.

 

 

May I ask why 2 wedding bands? never heard of it before. Very interesting!!!!!

 

For you checked luggage your allowed any amount.. doesn't have to be under 100ml.

That is just for the carry-on

Oh ladies, I have been so busy trying to get all of this wedding stuff done. The FI and I got a lot done this past weekend with wedding favor bags and OOT bags, but nothing is totally complete yet. I’m hoping to get them fully assembled this weekend, and then I’ll post pictures. Today, I posted a thread of my sand and shell bottle wedding favors w/ pics and instructions. Check it out. http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...-w-pics-56826/

I was able to breathe a BIG sigh of relief yesterday when I finally faxed my FINAL wedding guest list to the Carnival Cruiselines Wedding Department. That means I don’t have to BEG people to RSVP anymore! If anyone tries to RSVP at this point, too late, the guest list is already final.

Natasha - no nothing wedding in the basement - mostly books and tools, and my kitties hang out down there - they were a little stressed but they are ok. the sun is finally out today but the rivers are just cresting in some areas and tons of floods. New Jersey has been declared a diaaster area. My friend who's home my shower was in just got her power back. I have pictures on my facebook page - Michele Bailin - you can request me to be a friend : )

Passing out OOT bags ahead of time is a great idea if you have people in town. I only have one person in town that is coming to my wedding. All the other guests are in different states. Luckily, we are able to drive down to Miami, Florida where the wedding will be. We will definitely have the SUV LOADED. I have wedding stuff scattered all over the house and it won’t be cleared out until after the wedding.

 

I’m so glad your kitties are ok. I was so out-of-the-loop over the weekend, I didn’t know about the flooding in your area until I came on this message board. I’m in the dark ages, I don’t have a facebook account yet, so I couldn’t check out your pictures, but I saw the news coverage this morning while I was getting ready for work.

I know! Ours will be that way soon too. I can’t wait to hear their reviews and see some pics.

You should really check out this site: Sand Dollars, Starfish and Seashells for sale, I found it from another girl on here that was very happy with her order, they are so reasonably priced too!
I ordered sand dollars from them too. They are definitely good quality and are packaged very well. None of my shells arrived broken.

i forgot to tell everyone that we actually have half of our wedding stuff packed and out of our house!

i can update my wedding packing list (i made a spreadsheet that has everything wedding-related that we're bringing and which bag it's packed in) too! hello freaksih organization.

I don’t think you are terrible for not getting the in-laws anything. Not everyone does the traditional thing.

 

You are sooo lucky to get half your wedding stuff out of your house. I can’t do that though, because none of my relatives or close friends live in the same city (or even the same state) as me. I’ve only lived in this area for about a year and a half and moved here for the job.

 

I try to be organized and I have spreadsheets for almost everything, but I don’t think I am going to have time to put together a packing list. Luckily I don’t have to do much clothes shopping for the honeymoon. Just a few swimsuits and sundresses. My friends and I typically do a “girlfriend’s weekend” every year, and we did Miami in 2008, so I bought a lot of outfits for that. Then the FI and I went to Vegas for a week last year and I bought a bunch of clothes for that trip , so I have TONS of clothes for vacation. I just need to go through my closets to figure out what I’m bringing and what still fits right.

Hmmm… The only thing I have packed up and ready-to-go are my natural touch wedding flowers. Everything else is just scattered around the house. But, I will get it together soon… Hopefully!

I couldn’t even imagine planning a wedding and doing a home renovation at the same time!

The 3 ounce 1 quart bag only applies to your carry on. A tip though (since I travel by air a lot)… use Ziploc bags to seal all of your liquids, gels, and aerosols that are in your checked bag. The change in air pressure on the plane could cause the containers to leak or burst and you don’t want your clothes ruined. I usually double wrap mine in my checked bag.

    • 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.
