We leave in one week from today as well. How are you doing?    Are you packed and ready to go?  I feel like I'm forgeting something.  I'm frantically trying to get all of the paperwork together for seating and rooms to the resort today.  I also have to print my escort cards/table seating plan,create the ceremony program, vows and the reception script!!  If that isn't enough already, I have to find inspiration pictures for my hair and makeup. 

Afterwards, I'm going to continue packing my clothing and decorations and hope I'm not overweight.

I will start to think I am doing pretty good, and then I will remember more things that I have forgotten... LOL!  I also still have a lot of paperwork to print to take with me.  We still need to finalize our ceremony script, work on our music choices, put a script together for introductions, and other things like that.  I have started pulling the wedding stuff all together, but will start to officially pack on Saturday.  I am hoping that it all fits, and there is room for clothes!

I just got back from my wedding in Mexico.  We had a total of 9 bags (between my daughter, hubby and myself).

Trust me...it was a breeze getting through customs.  I began to panic about two days before reading the threads about having to have receipts.....it was not even neccessary.  The customs agent did ask me to open one of the bags with the OOT items (it had the travel mugs & pepto & immodium).  Once they saw my dress and I told them in spanish "Vamos A cacer (sp?)..."we are getting married)....They just let me through.  Dont worry....just be prepared to open your bag.  They are just looking for people that bring in goods for sale in their country.

 

Good Luck!

Seriously, you just stopped my panic attack!  I have been worrying non-stop and I keep reading all of these things about receipts and things I have no receipts I am thinking I am screwed!  I am currently trying to fit things into suite cases so I will see how many extra we need to bring!  Again thank you so much for letting me know I have been freaking!!!!

    • We just had a destination wedding and both my girls were flower girls!  The dresses from princessly were perfect!  Lots of complements! Would definitely recommend them!  Very reasonably priced.
    • I just want to say I got the best flower girl dresses on Princessly. It was very reasonably priced, they customized the dress to fit my daughter and it came within a couple of weeks. My daughter looked amazing and so did her cousin (who also wore the dress). The company was so easy to deal with and I’m so happy I chose them! Here are a couple of pics! 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
