Hello Ladies!

 

Do you think its possible to change the date of our wedding? I already signed the contract with a different date. I emailed my WC Lorena but haven't heard from her. I hope she gets back to me soon. =/

We have 44 coming and we're doing out of town bags.  My fiance is in the business world so he has quite a few connections.  We're getting all of the couples a canvas beach tote that has their last name embroidered on it.  The single guys will get a book bag with their last name on it too.  Inside will be a beach towel for each person.  We got these wholesale online - I am not sure how much as my parents paid for them.  A pair of sunglasses, again a wholesale purchase.  They come in various colors.  I like them a lot.  Mini tissues, mentos, a little survival kit with bandaids, medicines, aloe, and a biodegradable sunscreen tube.  The sunscreen is required to snorkel down there.  We bought a big tub of it and filled little bottles that say "Lindsey & Kevin's Magic Biodegradable Sunscreen."  We put it in for the catamaran trip.  We also had fancy Do Not Disturb signs made and water bottle labels, so there will be water for each person.  We will include an itinerary and welcome letter too.  :)

 

Hope this helps!

We are definitely doing OOT bags. 

I found these for $5 a piece and they're personalized

I thought they were super cute. 

 

We haven't decided yet if we're doing them per room or per person. It all depends on how many people RSVP. Some ideas I have so far: 

waterproof cameras

Aloe Vera

Chapstick

playing cards

tylenol/other meds

personalized koozies (http://www.totallyweddingkoozies.com/destination-koozies.shtml)

And then also a welcome/thank you letter and an itinerary for the weekend

so far our OOT bags have:

personalized playing cards

small tube of sunscreen

packs of advil

shout wipes

chap stick

tissues

antibacterial gel

mints

mini first aid kits

 

def like the idea of welcome letters, itinerary, and do not disturb signs.

BOOKING ROOMS- DEPOSITS?

 

How did this work for you guys? Did you guys pay the deposits for everyone? And did you pay per person, or just by room because its way cheaper!

 

My TA is annoying me today. haha.

I paid 100 per room that was reserved but as long as you cancel any rooms that weren't booked by the deadline you will receive your deposit back or you can use it toward your trip.

I was thinking about doing this, but I just put a message on my wedding website so people will book themselves first. Ill pay for the slackers.... But Im going to book single people rooms so I only have to put $50 down!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
