I love and swear by the Nu Bra.  I'm using it for my wedding dress.  I hate the feeling of strapless bras slipping and always having to pull them up.  With this you don't have that problem.  Not sure how it is for fuller chest people though.  Maybe check some reviews if this applies to you!

Me and my fiance decided we are doing custom 2gb flash drives to send out with our thanks you cards and they will be loaded with our professional pics. Obviously these are 1 per family/couple/single. But we still want something small at the reception like candies. We were going to go with chocolate bars but then thought they will probably melt during travel :( so now i dont know what.. me and FI are huge chocoholics so any other candy seems weird lol

 

Jamaica has amazing Blue Mountain coffee.  Something that your guests will definitely appreciate and use back at home .... Just a thought. Maybe you could take chocolate in a carry on with you?  You could even pack it with a little freezer pack.

Matt and I will be arriving at the ME on the 9th!  :-)

 

I have tried uploading pics on this site, but have had trouble.  I'll try again.  For the survival kit, I got plastic bags, body poofs (2 for $1), and hand sanitizer (2 for $1) at the dollar store.  I got the advil, chapstick, aloe, and suntan lotion at Minimus.com.  I got the emergenC from walmart.com.  I then printed out labels on thick paper with all of the writing on the lower half so that it could be folded around the top of the bag and stapled on.  Altogether, it cost about $6 for each survival kit.

@ dazeydawl where did you find those?? Neat idea....
I'm getting them from ipromo.com. They are super easy to work with and the cheapest site I found! We are doing these as wedding favours but sending them out with our thank you cards after the wedding loaded with our professional pics.

True enough! I kinda like the coffee the idea. But now I'm thinking that with our OOT bags and the USBs maybe that's enough. I know my fiancé thinks so anyway and doesn't want to spend the extra money on candy!

Wow Dazey I LOVE your usb thank you card ideas with the pics loaded! Thats such a great idea.

Ive been super busy lately but I hope all my fellow May brides are doing good with their plans and are on the ball! We are about 118 days out from departure. Starting to freak out a bit... there is still so much more to do. :) Happy new year Ladies!
