Thank you!  I'm also a teacher. :)  Wow, my mind actually can't seem to remember how I did that, haha.  It may be because my Granny actually did that part, and I put on the labels.  I'm sure it's pretty easy with scissors and peeling it off.  Happy Planning, fellow educator!  ;)

Loving all your ideas Tammy, esp the passport welcome booklets - they are amazing. I wish I had the energy to make something like that. I think my guests will be getting a one page newsletter (if they are lucky) haha only joking. Thanks sharing.

Congrats...all of your ideas were awesome!

I WISH I had done as much research on our website as I have done on everything else. I am not very happy with the layout and overall look on theknot.com  Weddingwire.com looks much more impressive. Its too late to change it though . . I lalready have my guest list imported and RSVPs rolling in via the site. Oh well. Hopefully other brides to be can learn from my experience!

    • 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.
