How was it getting your dress through security? Do you have to put it through the scanner? How was the airline about hanging it in the closet? I'm so worried because its so big and heavy. Much heavier than I thought it would be

So Wed. Joannis got all my original locations and flower orders reserved. Thank goodness! I'm all done with my OOT bags will post picks later today, It totalled 35lbs! My fiance is handling the packing of all this crap very well. Just glad I don't have to lug it all back after the wedding.  Have one more foot jewelry to make then I'm done with that too.

The kids came up yesterday, the ex sent my new step son up with none of the Summer clothes we bought him last year and no underware. I swear if I wasn't so happy I'd be screaming. So off we go to shop again for summer clothes

We leave Monday, I am so ready to be on the plan and done with all the planning. The weather says showers Sat I hope it changes or clears up for the 3 afternoon weddings that are going on.

Cant thank everyone enough for their support and ideas. This blog has been a god send!

At 35 days until our BIG day, and 30 days before we leave for Mexico, my DIY lab is officially closed cheers.gif  Now I'm on to taking pictures of how we would like things set-up in order to give to our coordinator upon our meeting, packing and chilling.

 

BDW along with this particular forum has been a great great great thing!  BIG smile03.gifto my LADIES: PalaceBride2012, LadyDi1844, Jamie5280, Krsmith, Beatyea, SummerDawn, Steph and a few others.  It's hard to remember your username since I know your names by heart ;-)  If I have forgotten anyone, please charge it to my head and not my heart.  I love you ladies and look forward to meeting most in Cancun or in NY later this year.

 

In either case, I wish each of you a wonderful & magnificent wedding.  This site is full of great information and can at times be over whelming.  Seek your vision along with your FI and go for it! As my time is short, I will be on the forum less and less as I'm now finalizing things for our departure etc.  however; I will continue to pay it forward and either do a Planning thread (if times permits on the front end) and/or a MP review upon my return.

 

MP has changed so much from the genesis of our planning in late 2010 until now.  So make sure that you get things in writing and please know that unfortunately, what may apply to one bride may not necessarily apply to another especially if you have a different coordinator.  So you can imagine the difference in packages/information from 2012 to 2013.

 

For those getting married after the Colin Cowel packages begin, it may be worth it with all the fees that I see that the are trying to charge for set-up. 

 

Take care, plan well and have an awesome wedding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



I hope both you ladies have MAGNIFICANT days and enjoy every moment of all your HARD work!! I cannot wait to read both you reviews and updates when you come back!! Safe travels and CONGRATS in advance!!

Awe thanks so much Speckles121,  I'm definitely not signing off but I know that given the past few weeks, I totally dont' get on as much.  I'm sure you will get to that point where you can't sign on because you will feel compelled to "add more" or re-do" LOL  But I'm so not gone.  I do need to make sure I pack and keep a log of what BM I gave what suitcase to bring LOL  and I simply want to relax... I have knots and crap all up in my neck so I need to see my massage therapist without having to come back and worry and defeat the purpose of the massage.

 

I have been like an energize bunny but I truly need to focus on "the work that I have been putting off at my job" and make sure my staff is okay without me for a month. 

PM me if you have any questions and I will be sure to advise of the do's, don't and otherwise inquire when I return.

    • 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.
