February 2012 Brides!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

So my OOT bags are OFFICIALLY done! And, they are packed and ready to go! I put everything into 1 suitcase and it weighs 49 pounds on the button! I put a lot of my stuff in those bags where you suck the air out of them which seemed to free up a lot of space, but it really stinks that 1 whole suitcase is just "stuff." I am determined to pack light- In reality I only need 6 outfits and bathing suits, right? 

 

I picked my dress up this past weekend, but I am going to do some last minute clothing shopping and I totally forgot until I read an previous post but I too need sand holders. I have the frame but now I need to find some cute vases. I did, several weeks back, look at Michaels and AC Moore but didn't see anything fun. Anyone else have any ideas on where to find something like this?

 

I'm so excited...9 days until I leave and how exciting for the other girls who have already left. I can't wait to hear back from them.

Whew, one less thing to do! We need to weigh ours...we have ENTIRELY TOO much stuff in our OOT bag suitcase. Im an overpacker.  I have like 7 swimsuits, 4 pairs of shorts, 4 tops, swimsuit coverups, like 6 pairs of shoes.  I dont know WHY I packed so much stuff...but you never know...I brought a lot of, "just in case" stuff.

While I was packing these were my thoughts:

 

  • I need an outfit to greet everyone when the bulk of the group arrives,
  • I need a dress for our welcome dinner
  • I need a dress for the rehearsal dinner
  • I need a comfy pair of clothes for sports centered activities (we're very active and competitive, so we planned on doing a day of volleyball, tennis, water volleyball and the like)
  • I need something to wear in case we go on any excursions
  • I need something cute to wear in case my family wants to go to the resort club
  • Something to wear to the casino
  • etc, etc, etc


 

I clearly OVERthought my packing! LOL!

    • 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. 
    • 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.
