Oooh STD's ok that makes sense! hehehe I wish I had done it more like that. sad.gif

I've read a few posts that say don't go overboard with OOT bags cause people end up not even using the stuff is a waste of moola...but i guess that depends what you are putting in there. we wanted to do the whole sunscreen and toothbrush stuff, but who goes to jamaica and doesn't already take it! lol so ya we are just doing shirts and beads..

The group events are both taking place at the resort...i put them on another post in better detail, but in the short form what we are doign is the first night there we are having a party at the disco, didn't want to pay for a cocktail party or whatever so we'll all be wearing the mardi gras beads (with shot glasses on them) which will be "identifiers" for everyone that night. so we don't have to make sure we introduce everyoen they can do it themselves when they see someone else with the beads on! and everyone will have some liquid courage too!

then the next day we are doing an amazing race kind of event with teams and pit stops and they have to do funny things between each pit stop, and at the end they'll find us in the pool and we'll have a pool party! it's gonna be so fun!

 

Oh ya we are both going to Runaway Bay! we go the 5th to 12th...and then lucky us are off to Negril until the 19th for our honeymoon!

We are just going to miss you by a couple days. We get down there on the 14th! I agree about the OOT bags, do not want to get crazy, but want a few cute things to show our appreciation for everyone coming down there with us. We are there until the 21st, then to another resort through the 25th. ;-)

Hey ladies! My date is mar 4th. I've ordered the dress (it came last week - I'm trying it on next wed), our STD's and invites have gone out. I have ordered and recieved our favours. We're not bringing any decorations/extra touches, so at this point I just need to get our music done for the ceremony, put the favours together, put ribbon and tags on fans for ceremony, and probably a hundred other things I'm forgetting :)

 

Too much to remember!!

Ha!! Sounds like you are doing very well on your check list!! I am hoping to get our invites out next weekend!! So how many people does everyone have booked?

We are having the issue of a lot of our friends are "waiting" until the price goes down and/or they get their tax return money back! That is totally cutting it close and making me nervous, so now i really want to do our invites! What were your RSVP dates?

We have 10 book plus us, so we are sitting on 12. I am only waiting on 2 and at this point I really dont care if they dont go. They are my FI friends and I kinda think they are just rude because everything is always about them, so I would be just fine if they stayed home. FI is starting to see it too and I know it suck because they have been friends since high school.

    • 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.
