Wow, Sophia!!! You have a lot of people that Love you and want to celebrate your special day! How exciting. I agree that doing nice favors would be totally okay instead of doing full out OOT bags for each room. If you go that route, I think it'd be a nice gesture to have a special thank you note in each room when the guests arrive. This way, they still have something special waiting for them saying that you appreciate them coming all that way. (Plus, thank you notes are easy to travel with!) You could still do OOT bags before you leave, for sure.
How exciting that you're going to India soon! Visiting India is definitely on my Bucket List. Can't wait to see what wedding wonderfulness you buy there.

I think I'm overwhelmed at the thought of these projects as well because right now we have 110 people with their deposits down and a few more "maybes" too (Indian weddings are ridiculous!). So I'm not sure if i want to even tackle OOT bags for that many people. FI and I talked about making 1 per family or couple and handing them out at guests' homes before we leave, just so we don't have to lug all that stuff down to Cancun. What do you ladies think? Would that take away from the surprise or excitement of them?
On a happier note, my parents and I just booked our flights to India for this december! I will be buying my outfits and other wedding ceremony necessities from there and haven't been since since I was 6 years old! I won't get to do much sight seeing because I"m only there for 2.5 weeks, but I'm super excited nonetheless!
I'm PMing you the picture I used to print out and decorate!! (Believe it or not, took me hours to find the right one... haha)

However; if you look at your sketch and close off the very top of the aisle (drape material from the last chair on the bride side to the last chair on the groom side) that will force your guest to go to the other way instead of down the center aisle. Once everyone is seated and the bridal party is ready to proceed, the material can be removed and will remain open for the rest of the ceremony.
You seem so sad in memorializing your loved ones for this special day. Sending much Love and prayers your way. xoxox

I purchased our memorial charm which will have 3 pictures. The pictures will be of my FI's parents and my best friend who is also my Honorary Maid of Honor. She passed away in June of 09' two days before her 37th bday. As I'm fighting back tears, I'm going to sign off for the night. Please keep me in your prayers....I didn't think that I would get this emotional... thanks ladies.
Yes, we absolutely faxed over a copy of our credit card to them (front and back). Feel comfortable that you are in good hands! What package are you doing?

I was just wondering if they requested you to send a fax of your card that you were using (front and back). This makes me uncomfortable to be honest...so i was hoping that someone could reassure me that this was requested from them. I am so excited to begin my planning and get this minor headache out of the way!
Thank you so much =)
