2012 Brides - Roll Call!

Recommended Posts

I should probably make a list up. Things I want to do my FI says is lame lol. Anyone else have that problem? Like for example OOT bags. He said there is no need. Even the maracas & luggage tags! He doesn't want to be included in any of it so now I am second guessing doing the bags. Men!! I was going to get pashminas but thought its going to be HOT!

 

So far I have sent STDs, got invites made(didnt send out yet), booked a room block, secured our date with resort, paid a deposit on a photographer, bought a dress, made luggage & maraca tags & thats it!!!!

 

I need to get shoes, the I DO sticker(love that) ask the guys & girls to be in the wedding(thanks for the card!), get their outfits, FI outfit, book DJ, book flight, pay our room, pay for the wedding package, brochures, welcome letters, figure out OOT bags & what the heck I am gonna put in them and get a head count! Guess thats my list...ugh. I should copy this for a starter list. I am feeling overwhelmed today! 

 

@celticgirl & canadiangirl you both have done so much!!

As far as the EXTRA STUFF- oot bags and the extra name tags welcome books and so on...lol lol my FI is the same way...he says to me this is your thing, im not flashy like you lmao but its so true! hed be happy if him and i were in jamaica came back home and had a drinking party. So in my opinion, the OOT bags are something your fam and friends will love to have as a thank you for coming..its like their GIFT form u 2
. I think its a nice touch! (my opinion of course) lol

If shoes are your thing, i found a great site...PLUS they have coloured shoes woooohoooo so i will add it for you! as for the cards, NO PROB at all! if you need help with the OOT goodies I can always give you the list of things im putting in ours, if that helps lol

 

Dont feel overwhelmed.... most ppl dont do a thing until they get to the resort, your in good shape! just breath

How did you do a DIY luggage tag? On cardstock? Would love to know... and how are you doing your OOT bags? Like what goodies are you putting in with them... I really would love to have these, but I think they may be out of my budget.

If you search on here you will find tons of different suggestion for luggage tags and OOTs

 

I think anyone can do OOT bags and keep them in their budget, it is really easy to get carried away but we wont be doing favours just our OOTs so tjhat saves some budgets.  I think it's just a fun addition to the trip for your guests like Leigh said.

 

You can get self laminating luggage tags, and many other options!!

its all about the dollar store..i got my OOT bags from there for a 1.00 lime green and turquoise (mesh style beach bag) on the front of it i will be doing an iron on transfer with our monogram on it.

As far as the GOODIES go, im putting in personalized cups(ebay) hand sanitizer (dollar store) citronella candle - sorry about the spelling lol (canadian tire) flip flops either (dollar store or old navy) creams, hangover kit which will include asprin, chapstick (with personalized label on it) tums, nasua meds lol and pepto. then Im doing a first aid kit which will have (personalized name tag) band aids,sewing stuff, just incase lol.room key holders with a spiral wrist band (walmart) playing cards, oh and I did a do not disturb door sign lol this is my fav thing so far hehehehe

 

i think thats it lol as far as the luggage tags, ive done the template for them, but iam not printing them until were back home..less to pack! but I will be printing them on cardstock paper (leftovers from the invitation inserts)

 

As far as we go, were not having alot of ppl maybe 20. But if you are doing more than that, what I would do is make everything personal...and do smaller OOT bags, so it looks full lol lol

 

OH yeah i forgot...I also did a welcome book for everyone, it was going to be a cut and paste into a small ring binder from the dollar store, but it ended up being 8 pgs so im going to go the again..dollar store and buy those transparent ones and put them in there! K now I think thats it. Alot of my stuff Ive done DIY projects, but im happy to help if you need it. I hope this helped u

    • 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?
