Ok I think I've gotten myself all caught up! ;)

 

Erin - LOVE the dress! having a corest is also a great idea (that's my fav part about mine) plus, you won't need to wear a bra! ;)  As for the koozies, FI and I talked about it over the weekend and decided to save the $ and forget about them. I'll be placing the cheaptotes order today - just for the bags.

 

PurpleUnicorn - Welcome!!!! :)

 

Teira - OMG your daughter is adorable! I want to squeeze her to bits! hehe ;)

 

Francine - that's suck a cool picture!!

 

Brandy - your guests are some lucky people! your OOT bags are going to be incredible!!!!!

 

...I had a not so productive weekend AGAIN! ugh! we've been so busy!!! Saturday was a wash away as FI had to go into work (I went with him) and yesterday I was feeling like crap (fighting a cold) but still had to go out and work (in -22deg weather!) then we had groceries and such.... Need to get my luggage tags finished!

I had a productive weekend too - I feel like almost everything is now crossed off my list!  This weekend I finished up all my travel mugs, including personalizing them with everyone's names, FI decided he actually does like his suit after trying it on again, so no need to order a new one, we finished all the gifts for GM, BMs, flower girl and ring bearer, and I found cake boxes.  We also confirmed that my father and all the groomsmen have ordered their pants/shirts for the wedding.

 

The only things left on our list are:

- minor alterations for my dress and FI's suit

- exchange FIs wedding band for a smaller size

- get the prongs on my e-ring shaved down to sit flush with my wedding band

oh yeah, and get vases for the sand ceremony - tris - where did you find the ones you got?  I've actually been looking for acrylic ones in the kitchen container aisle but haven't come across any - I looked at superstore, walmart etc.  I would love to know where you found yours!

lsmith - I got them at Winners. I see you're in Calgary so hopefully you have one somewhere around? They were 7.99 each.

No problem! Hopefully you have luck! I'd been looking EVERYWHERE for them and I just happened to be there looking for something else and I came across them. Why are these so hard to find?!?!

Ok so I need your help...Im having a really hard time trying to figure out a good hair flower or head band decor to go with my dress. Brandy, I think you are the one who is the super shopper online so maybe you can help! :) Im also kinda sad cause Im not super in love with my dress but figure its a good fit for a destination wedding but it doesnt make me feel like a princess or anything lol Let me know what you all think and if you have any suggestions. Im going to wear my hair down with extensions and a tousled look. I was hoping to have a flower that goes behind my ear and white...my flowers in my bouquet are turquoise gerberas and yellow roses... Any help would be much appreciated, its starting to stress me out a little!

Thanks girls, you are the best!!!

Ok so a productive one for me too! Booked meeting with AHR DJ when I go home in Feb and meeting with the caterer. Got pricing for cupcakes for the AHR. Got flower pricing for Mexico. Found discounted rate on our trip. Sold my linens(tablecloths and chair covers) pending one thing to check. Found out shipping cost for FIs suit. Emailed wedding coordinator about DJ, Flowers and Room upgrades. Found a plastic basket for the ceremony fans i am going to use. Found Ferry timetable and pricing for my trips between islands on my honeymoon. Spoke to a slush machine rental company about getting one for my AHR and pricing. Picked wine bottle tops for the wine at my AHR and Figured out week itinerary while at the resort for restaurants and excursion days!

 

Thanks Mocha I will check out the site.

I found a girl selling 49 3x3x3 cupcake or cake boxes for 20$, do you think this is a good deal for those that have been researching them?

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
