Jstar - That is great news

 

JT3 - I am lying =) Or if we have to claim some I am separating the sum to have other family members hold traveler's checks (cause they can be tracked) but other than that - just lying =)

The weddingmares have begun with me too! I am stressed about one or two things. We were going to have stuff shipped to Italy in advance but it was way too expensive. We decided not to do OOT bags but pre-travel packages b/c of it...kinda bummed out about it but I must move on.

 

Good luck to everyone carrying or shipping OOT items.

thope - I'm not shipping a single item, I have 6 suitcases I'm hauling down with me. Search the forum and you'll find all the horror stories of things not making it and customs seizing and burning items so I just don't think it's a good idea at all.

 

I'm not using a wedding coordinator so I can't help you there, I'm sure there are some down there.

 

JT3 - I think I'm gonna put zero, I have no intention of selling anything and it's just supplies for a wedding that I'm not even bringing back with me. I doubt it will matter, anything NOT to raise a red flag! HAHA!

I am having wedding nightmares as well.. I have no clue what else I have to do or get eeee.... LOL

Ladies I have a question for all of you.. Do you guys know that we will have to fill out customs card but are you ladies stating how much you are really bringing.... I usually put zero dollars but should we put morehuh.gif?


Good question! I had planned on bringing receipts (even made up ones) for the OOT stuff & tealight holders we're bringing just in case we get stopped, but I didn't consider declaring anything. I'm guessing I'll write "0" too, since, like kittenheart pointed out, we're not selling anything.
I found this link that talks about customs in Mexico
Mexico Travel - Entering Mexico - Government of Mexico

I'll consider myself lucky - no weddingmares yet. I'm in school so my nightmares are limited to projects & clinicals so far. I'll bet they'll creep in as we get closer tho.

I'm also starting to have the weddingmares!! I dreamed that the beach was eroded so badly that we couldn't have our reception on it and that the wind was so bad that my veil was doing the "helicopter" in all of my pictures and in the way. It was cloudy, rainy, and just nasty. Oh yeah, and the groom and his groomsmen were wasted drunk. Also, dreamed that nothing was organized and I ran out of time to do a welcome letter for my guests so nobody knew what was going on or where to go for the wedding. That was all in one dream! Talk about waking up in a sweat!!!

I dreamed that I went to meet the wedding coordinators but they weren't at the resort, they were in the city and I had to take a train there, for some reason I went alone. And let me tell you, if Mexico looked like it did in my dream I would not be going! I went to the building where the wedding coordinators were, and tried to find their office but couldn't and I was getting harassed by all these drunk homeless people, and then got shot at by some gangster.. lol.. so I decided to leave but couldn't find the train back to the resort and no one would help me find it. Everyone was so mean! lol. I woke up panicked...

I had a dream that my wedding was all of a sudden in this giant house in LA. There were over 200 people there but all my accommodations were set up for 40 since that's the number coming to my Mexico wedding. I couldn't find my real dress so I ended up wearing my TTD dress which didn't fit and was falling off. I forgot my veil and my garter and my shoes. About to walk down the aisle I start crying because I didn't finish the ceremony or write my vows so the officiant had nothing to read. I ran down the aisle in this extremely crowed room in tears holding up my dress falling off of me telling FI we can't get married without vows... I found my mom watching tv upstairs with a friend while this whole thing went down and woke this this morning to LOUD thunder. Ugh!

Aww thank goodness they were just dreams.

 

I dreamt that my MOH and I were in Mexico alone and we couldn't find the resort so we were wandering around. That was a weird dream!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
