    I just learned that if you travel and fill your first suitcase with your allowed 50lbs all is good. If you exceed that, it's usually $5-$10/kilo or something ridiculous that you have to pay. but if you have a second suitcase that you check it's only like $40 for another 50 lbs. All these years i've been paying close to 100 bucks for a few extra pounds. I feel robbed! But if you need to, you can always pack a suitcase and give to one of your guests to bring down. Just pay the $40 for them. And maybe leave the stuff in JA when you're done if you don't need it or find another JA bride who you can sell or offload it to (like me)...just kidding, I'm not til May but I will be in JA around xmas so maybe that's not such a bad thought after all. Lol.

      You def have to hunt to find the orchids. But if in doubt, they're at Ikea and they will probably be on sale at some point. Reg price isn't bad at $1.99

      Lol! Hey why not...let me know next time and I can prob give you a hand if I'm free. I think I'm beginning to bore my friends with all of my recent wedding talks anyways. I still have a few months so I should try not to drive them nuts just yet.

          Ikea had a good selection. I know for sure they had white orchids. And Michaels had white roses.

            I have the Michael's app on my iPhone. There is always a 40% or 50% off coupon on there, and they just scan your phone! That way your coupon is always with you and you can use it multiple times a week! Guilty LOL

              I downloaded that app too when I started researching all the ideas for the wedding. Probably the most helpful app on my iPhone at the moment.

                  That's a great idea. I didn't even think of that. My appointment is December 1st so maybe I will call them in a week to check with them, and see if they have the dress I'm looking for. Thanks for the tip!

                  No problem! I know they had some new styles as of this fall, and if you've got time before you need to order, I imagine they'll have more new dresses in early 2013.

                   

                  SJay, your advice was the best! I called the Davids Bridal store today, and confirmed that they have the 2 main dresses that I really liked online in the store, so I'm hoping that in the 2 weeks time before I go that nobody buys it. The girl on the phone said anything could happen, but they should always have the dress there of a different size that I could try on for the shape and all. I'm so relieved right now. THANK YOU!

                    Yes, we're getting married at the Gran Bahia Principe Tulum. We just put down the deposit with them a couple of days ago. How about you?
                    As for the dresses, I considered the convertible dresses too but my sister is really picky and she doesnt like them too much so she wants to look for other dresses. Thanks for the advice though. That might be my plan B if I really cant find anything.

                    That is great! I had that resort as one of my last 3 options, but I ended up booking at Grand Sunset Princess.  :)
