I also don't need to put the placecard there as I was thinking of having them in a tray with sand standing up by the bottom legs of the startfish. The only problem with that is i want certain people to sit in certain seats for better view of the head table and to avoid certain people beside each other! So if I go with that option people will just sit where ever at the table that is on their placecard. I am still not sure which way to go.

 

Tris so exciting to get your dress, can't wait to see pics. With all the stress you must be under with packing, moving, planning and reno's I am sure you will naturally drop a few pounds even if you don't need to.

I couldn't think about what to get my father but for FI's parents we decided the lightest thing would be to pay for them to take an excursion to see the ruins in mexico. Any Daddy gifts you ladies can think of. He is a man who has everything so it is soooo hard to buy him gifts.

 

Ok so I found a thread on here about waterproof makeup for a TTD and most say sephora, benefits, loreal, rimmel and Bare minerals but most suggested sephora which is quite pricey. I need to investigate more it think.

Okay Lisa I just searched one of the forums on here and a girl had said that she is getting her dad a model of the car he used to have when she was little and had the door engraved.  I'm thinking I might do something similar...My dad is super hard to buy any gift for so I am really looking for something that'll mean something too. 

Thanks for the makeup tip!!

Haha! Wouldn't that be nice ;)! Stress weight loss! Haha! Unfortunately I don't think it will be that easy. I've been going to the gym to tone, but not really to lose weight. I'm pretty much at the weight my body likes being and I'm happy with it! Now only if the bottom part of those abs started peeking out I'd be satisfied!

 

I can't wait to get the pics back either! We laughed about how she's going to wear it cleaning the house (Monica, from "Friends" style).

 

I think I still like the small fold the best, btw :)

Bailey, we're thinking of giving our parents each a nice & big framed (or stretch canvas) family pic. Our photog is doing family pics for us the day before the wedding and since neither of our parents have an even close to recent family picture we thought it would be nice :)!

Lisa, now that I see the small fold with the menu and card, I prefer it. Maybe you can have a few reserved signs for the special guests?

 

Tris, I hope your sister sends the pictures today so we can all see the. I think I've dropped weight with being stressed. But it could also be that I am eating less. FI always wants to have full meal with meat,  veggies and side and even though it is way too much for me and more than I need, I usually eat it all. So now that I just have to feed me, I'm back to smaller portions.

 

Welcome back Bailey. I'm not sure what to get our parents. I will probably wait until we get or pictures back and make them albums which we can hopefully present at AHR.

Lisa, I like the centerpieces with the white rocks and the smaller fold on the napkins/menus

 

Tris, thats so great about your dress!! Not sure where I'll keep mine, probably just keep it at home bc I wont be picking it up until like a week before we leave!

 

As far as parents gifts go, I got both mothers those embroided lounge cover towels and bikini bags, I picked up a starfish necklace for my mom, they are getting some really nice thank you cards made up and thats all I have so far, Id like to get them a massage or something nice like that but trying to figure out how to fit it in the budget!!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
