    Hey Lindsey

     

    My travel agent advised against it and at the time, so did Ana.  Things can sit in customs, get kicked around and are easily lost plus it can be extreamly expensive to ship something with the gurantee it'll be there on time.  Ana told me they have no way of securing what is sent and it may very well be used in another brides wedding if its seens as available...whatever that means but I woulndn't risk it!  Just ask everyone to pus something in their carry on and get some hard case suitcases

    I am seriously bummed though because Yamina told me the Barracuda Bar would be perfect for welcome cocktails.  Um no, it closes at 6.  She confirmed today.  What does our invitation say?  7 at the Barracuda Bar.  I am confused as to why she'd suggest it in the first place, but whatever!  We will have to correct it in our welcome letter.  :)

     

    We also ordered a heart shaped sand ceremony vase and cork bowl set from Wedding Star.  It's engraved with our initials and date.  I LOVE IT.  Also got 7 cameras for the reception tables and bridal party tank tops from etsy.  I feel like I get a wedding surprise in the mail every day, I love it!!
     

    Question about shipping - how many of you are shipping things to the resort?  Honestly, I'd like to just pack them so I know they're with me, but I'm nervous about checking all the extra baggage.

     

    I am nervous to ship because if something [like our sand for the ceremony or artificial flowers] gets stuck at customs, we're beat...we wouldn't have it.  Thoughts on this?

                Has anyone heard from Evangelina!?

                 

                Will I have to purchase a calling card to call them.  I need a follow up on my dj and cake maker and she isn't replying and its driving me insane!

                 

                Also, is anyone interested in writing their entire wedding off next year? I am..... lol.  I'm hosting part 2 of my bachelorette party in Cancun using my Pure Romance business and because of such, my tax preparer said I can write the entire thing off so I thought I'd share that tidbit......

                 

                Or if anyone is interested in items themselves or you're in the DC/VA/MD/NJ area, host a party through me and I'll give you a free shopping spree at your party valued to 20% of the of the proceeds made at your party...I also do internet parties as well...

                      Ahhh you are right, it is a glass stopper!  Someone else said they used glue, but I am not sure how exactly.  The glue was supposed to keep the sand from messing up.  Does anyone remember how to do this?
