Thanks for the support everyone :)
I'll be plenty happy if parents and wedding party all make it down, anything else is a bonus.

Great websites for the badge holders. Where did you guys find wrist coils??

I think putting names on the mugs is a great idea, you guys are so brilliant!

welcome!! It is very stressful.. lol I'm like you ebredhawk I choose DW to avoid the wedding stress.. so much for that!! I recently said to the FI I think it's a little more stressful doing DW because you have to wait until you get there to do the real planning. But we are here to give help and to get help, luck for that.
I'm with you on that, as long as the parents and the bridal party show, everyone else is a bonus.

DW are as stressful as local weddings! FI and I wanted a DW bc we thought it would be less stressful too.

 

Hobbylobby- Is that like a Michaels? I wonder if they have real-touch, bc when I look all I see are silk flowers...

Welcome girlkin! We have the same wedding date!!!

 

I agree with the other ladies, DWs are as stressful as local ones I think. Good luck planning and if you need help and/or advice, there are so many threads with answers!

i agree that they are just as stressful, but i think the day of the wedding is more relaxing for a DW. i have heard SO many people say that they don't remember a thing about their wedding day since it was so busy and stressful. since most of us have WCs to take care of the stuff that day, and you're in a beautiful place and not at home with other concerns, hopefully our wedding days will make up for the stress beforehand!

and yes, hobby lobby is like micheals.. i've never seen real touch flowers at michaels, but i haven't made an effort to look for them either. you can always ask someone there. anything other than silk would work fine!

I was wondering about this too, thanks Erin! Flowers are probably the one things that I really haven't even started to investigate yet. The whole concept of real vs. fake and all the many options just has me totally mystified and scares me LOL!

I recently went to Michaels (the closes Michaels for me is in Ottowa, 2 hour drive each way) So I made sure I knew everything in there. There wasn't anything for me there, I knew I could get half the stuff there half off at walmart or the dollar store.

They do not have real touch flowers there, just the fake ones. They are very nice and look pretty real. But they are about 5-20$ a stem. At that point you can get real flowers from the resort.

Just my opinion tho! :)

I agree, most bridal couples hardly remember their wedding because they are so busy. Yes it's a tad stressful trying to plan a wedding from far, but the day of the wedding I think we will be pretty relax, and stress free. We will actually remember it because we wont be busy!

I can't wait until I just get to the resort. I know thats when the stressing will stop!

Stress, I'm dreaming about this forum at night!! lol

Wondering if there's anything I missed!!

 

Tracy & Meghan:

 

If you guys figure out what you're doing for flowers let me know...I can't decide either!

Tracy I'm with you on the cost...the fake one's are pretty expensive and pretty much equal in cost to the Resorts fresh flowers. Real Touch are not at the Michael's here in Calgary either. I have a ton of flowers to do...well nothing elaborate but 14 boutonnieres and 8 flowers for women (corsages?) and 5 bridesmaid bouquets - I swear I might as well outfit the entire resort with flowers!!! lol

If you Canadian gals find some nice real looking flowers for a good deal - like CHEAP!! lol

Let me know and I'll forward you any info I find!!

    • 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.
