    I'm taking all of wedding stuff on the plane with us- I've heard too many horror stories of stuff not arriving if it was shipped.

      I was going to say this exact same thing!

      I think it is best to bring it down with you, I've heard too many stories of stuff getting stuck at customs for months or just getting lost!

      Is anyone doing raffia fans with the handles covered in ribbon?? I'm just starting this project but I don't know what type of ribbon would be best to use. The satin ribbon is so expensive... and I'm not sure how much I will need! Any advice??

        thanks so much everyone! i will try to bring most everything with us, but we also have these bigger metal lanterns that will hold pillar candles that just seem so big! think we're going to ship half of them soon, and bring the rest with us when we head down.

            I plan on shipping my OOT bags (the bags only, not the contents) because I am using market baskets and have to do 20+ of them so there is NO way we can carry them down.  My resort allows us to ship ahead of time, so I plan on doing so.  Everything else will be carried in suitcases.

              I too want to do the Raffia Fans, but dont know where to buy them yet...........so i am still waiting to order those..

               

              Where did you buy them???

               

              I think any ribbon would do..............i will have to make a trip to PatCatan's a  craft store here to look for ribbon....

               

              I also bought all my TULLE on ebay for the chairs, maybe give EBay a try. (they dont have any RAFFIA fans reasonable tho :(...)

                  I bought my raffia fans through oriental trading! Very inexpensive! I ended up buying satin ribbon in fuchsia and orange and I'm going to start wrapping them this weekend! I still don't know how much ribbon I'll need....
                   

                  I just finished my luggage tags!! IMG_0676.JPG

                   

                   

                  My sand ceremony set just arrived. http://www.amazon.co...98588704&sr=8-3 I highly recommend them! I got them personalized and they still shipped in less than 3 days from when I ordered! We still need to buy the sand though!

                   

                  We finally picked FI's ring: http://www.titaniumk...ng-P104048.html

                  He loves it, I keep catching him trying it on and looking at himself in the mirror (he'd kill me if he ever read this)

                   

                  FI's suit arrived from studiosuits. We ordered it in tropical beige and absolutely LOVE it!!! Now we just need to find him a shirt!

                   

                  I have my first dress fitting tonight!!! My mom and best friend are coming with me! I still haven't picked my shoes yet... well I've actually bought 3 different pairs I just haven't decided which ones, if any of them I want to wear for my wedding day.

                   

                  I have designed my ceremony programs and reception menus and mint matchbooks (thanks rosie) I'm just so sick of cutting stuff with my fiskar paper cutter that I've taken a break. I think I'll take the rest to my friends work (she's an elementary school teacher) and use their big slicer paper cutter to save time and sanity!!

                   

                  And for the most exciting wedding planning news... We have booked our HONEYMOON!! After the wedding week, we're going to head to the island of Cozumel staying at a cute little oceanfront hotel for a week of scuba diving and relaxation!! We're both avid scuba divers and the proximity to the barrier reef is the main reason we chose the riviera maya for our wedding!! Yay!

                   

                  Its been a productive wedding week!!

                    Heather yay for getting things checked off! Question where did you buy the luggage tags?  I'm trying to determine the best ones to get and if I get self laminating or not.   Our sand ceremony kit also came from the same seller!

                      I cannot believe I just found this thread!  I have had my wedding planned for over a year now.  I cannot believe it is so close!  Now I am trying to get all the little things done...I keep taking on more little projects.  I have a feeling my "relaxing destination wedding" is turning into the opposite!
