MJKH - Wedding week survival bags are done!!! Lots of pics : )

Recommended Posts

Ok, now the baskets are done! Ran out of room in the ladies' basket so put the personal care items in a small cosmetic bag. I found the acrylic photo holders at Michaels ($1.50) and the punched cards came in a box of 50 (all fruit-punch colours with envelopes) from Winners ($6.99). Because they're single layer cardstock, they should work perfectly for a little sign beside each basket.

Oh thanks, I try.  I've often been tempted to start a new thread on BDW called "What could I do/make with this?"...because so many brides have so many amazing ideas that I would have never thought of!  Like I have this long...maybe 8 feet...of alternating crystals/metal loops lying around...and continue to wonder "What could I do with this?".

"Remember To Bring"

"Day of Departure"

"At the Cancun Airport"

"Resort Information"

"Resort Dining"

"Local Area Information"

"Local Transportation Information"

"Money Matters"

"Notes" (Blank/Last Page)


The passport covers are from Michaels (purchased this last summer)...the cardstock paper covers are Vistaprint oversized postcards with a saturated pink (reverse) side.  About 1 inch was trimmed off the left side of the card to fit the cover...then the corners were clipped.  I'm not going to lie...as helpful as some of the examples were that I found here on BDW, the formatting of the booklet was a nightmare.  But neither my FI nor I are stellar when it comes to the world of computers.  I attempted to put some clip art in here and there, but eventually gave up : (

If I remember correctly, they were $1.50 each here at Michaels in Canada last spring/summer.  I wouldn't be surprised if they show up in the dollar bins again there soon.  I would ask every time you go in there as stuff if sometimes hard to find and not where you would expect it.

    • 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?
