Im so excited for you! I wish mine was sooner! I have a couple questions for you. How much did you spend on your OOT bags and where did you get everything from? Im trying to decide whether or not im going to do them or not since everything is seeming to be much more expensive then I thought!
Also, would you mind sending me any copies of your welcome letter, itinerary, etc? That would be so helpful just to get ideas! My email is
So we leave for Mexico in 34 days and I am starting to figure out how to pack. I am nervous.
Besides our clothes we need to bring down...
-My bouquet, 3 bridesmaid bouquets, and corsages/boutonnieres
-Sand and sand ceremony kit
-Wine stopper favors
-Beach towels for OOT bags
-20 Embroidered OOT bags
-Sunglasses for OOT bags
-All of the other contents of the OOT bags
-Welcome letter, itinerary, guest book mad libs cards, and programs
-Cake Topper * "I Do" letters
-Starfish place cards
-Gown, jewelry, shoes, etc.
-Kevin's wedding day attire
I think that's it but it's very overwhelming! We are also flying US Air direct but we will have to pay for our bags, I believe, so that sucks. I am hoping I can do it by Kevin, myself, my mom, and my dad all taking an extra bag. I will check the boxes that the favors and beach towels are in. They will count as bags...then I will try to get the rest of the things in two bigger suitcases.
My main concern are my flowers. Does any one have any suggestions on how to bring down silk/real touch bouquets? I don't want to check them in a suitcase for fear they will get tossed around and ruined, but I will if I have to. I thought about putting them all in a carry on bag. Does anyone have any suggestions? I can't believe how soon my wedding is!
