      they were FREE to make too!! :)  i just designed the bookmarks, printed them on my dad's printer, then brough them back to work where I laminated them.  At home last night i just had to punch the hole and attach the hemp string (i already had a huge ball of string from years ago)

        On the topic of airlines - I'm actually flying Sunwing .. on a champagne flight at 6:45am to be exact ;)  I'm not sure if there's any specials for bride and groom, but I do know of another bride who flew to my resort from Toronto with the same travel group as me and they had special compartments just for her dress and another bride's dress - so that's good to know! :)  I think i'm going to contact them anyway in the next few weeks just to make sure.

              Mocha - Is that true??? We put deposits down on our group rate back in August, but we're only paying the remainder as of last week. I should call my travel agent and figure this out. That would be sooo helpful!!

                I actually have some wedding stuff on my weekend to-do list!!! i essentially only have 3 mroe weekends to get stuff done because i really dont' want to be scrambling the weekend before we leave.


                So here we have it:


                - shop for bathing suits - I'm thinking of popping into old navy after work today to see if they got the bandeau tops in yet. their website shows exactly what i want (on sale in my colour too!) but a bathing suit isn't something i'm comfortable about ordering online due to sizes (not sure what i am). FI and i checked our local store 2 weeks ago and they didn't have the bandeau ones in yet. maybe i'll luck out tonight!  http://oldnavy.gapca...&scid=810730033

                - finish cutting out the holes on my do not disturb door hanger


                - do the final glueing/fix-ups on my dress then try it on for my grandma (She can't come to the wedding and is down for the weekend). it will also be the last time i put it on before the big day!! so there will definitely be pics!!


                - with help from my mom, cut out the fabric so that i can get started on my DIY dress!! hoping to be able to finish the dress before we leave!

                  Tris - That is the policy for their airline tickets so it should be the same for the vacation packages. We bought our tickets separately, so we have each have two free bags coming home.


                  Laura - I bought my old navy bandeau top in January from a store but they seem to be sold out now. Hopefully you can find stock this weekend. It is more difficult to find a properly fitting bandeau.


                  Brandy - I think the bracelets are a good idea. I still haven't bought a thank you gift for my MoH hosting my shower and this way it would be a good idea for BM gift too. Is it bad if I just order onine and have it shipped to her? I won't see her until she arrives in Cancun.



                  My list for the weekend (well Sunday since it's my only day off)

                  1. Tanning so I don't burn in Mexico
                  2. Find vases to use with Sand Ceremony
                  3. Find aloe?
                  4. Purchase Paper for Petal Cones and print template on Monday
                  5. Finish Programs
                  6. Purchase a few items for Bridal Party Survival Kits
                  7. Finish Designing Pre-Travel Brochures, which I might try to finish on Saturday at work.
                  8. Make new mothers corsages since FMIL only tried on one dress and bought it even though it is exactly what I told her to not to buy, right down to a muted color that will look so dull in our pictures and with all the decor, yes, I am bitter about it.

                    Mocha, I think it would be perfectly fine to ship it to her
