Still waiting patiently for the phone to ring and it be the bridal store telling me my dress is in.  rolleyes.gif

There are a lot of threads on here for OOT bags, best 2 are Master OOT Bag thread and What was used and not used...you can search them but I know I'm happy with my purchase of the Bubba's.  Not sure how I'm going to get them down there but we'll see  :)

Hi Vanessa -

 

As FutureMrsDawson stated you can search for the master list to help you decide what to put in them.  That list and many other brides posts have helped me decide.

 

My OOT bags will have a welcome letter, a Riviera Maya brochure, a "Big Day" time line, Do Not Disturb tag, word puzzle made with our own words, first aid kits, survival kits, room key holders w/ lanyards, tropical notepads, tropical magnets, flip flop playing cards, gummy candy in the shape of flip flops, photo sharing cards and probably some other stuff I am forgetting I already bought LOL.

 

My survival kits will contain: advil, pepto, tums, hand sanitizer, gum, wisps, chapstick, sunscreen, tissues, safety pins, wet wipes, crystal light and snacks...and anything else I run across. :)

 

The photo sharing cards are cards that state an account has been created on a photo sharing website (i.e. shutterfly) and we provide login info so everyone can upload the photos they took from vacation.  Easiest way to share photos with your guests.

 

Hope this helps!!

I think I'm going to do the white strips as well. I'm also using whitening toothpaste already, and hydrogen peroxide wash (which I've done for years).

so far I've done both the white strips and the professional dentist whitening kits. The 3d strips def made my teeth a little whiter...nothing crazy. The prof. whitening from the dentist works really well but it is very expensive and makes my teeth super sensitive even while using sensodyne toothpaste. I have been whitening my teeth for over a month now ( not every night) with the retainers and whitening from the dentist because I am getting ready for veneers on my front two teeth because i have hypocalicification spots from meds when i was younger. They make me really insecure about my teeth so I finally decided to go for veneers before the wedding. So if you want dramatic results I say see your dentist but be prepared for the cost.

Is anyone else planning their outfits? I want to look good for the whole 2 weeks, and I know if I wait until I'm down there I will just slap something on, so I'm going to put together different outfits ahead of time so I don't have to think about it. I know, I'm a nerd! :P

I don't think you're a nerd at all, cuz if you are, then so am I! cheesy.gif I always plan my outfits when I travel, even if it's casual! And I'm crazy. I pack a week or two ahead of time and then check my luggage or re-pack a night or two before I leave. girl_werewolf.gif

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
