I'm planning on including lanyards as well. I would love to know what seller you got yours from on ebay. Thanks!

I offered them $20 for 40 lanyards. On the thread I made about these, another lady offered them even less and they accepted. :o) This was the best deal I found, and the pouch is waterproof, I tested it. :o)

Hello,

 

woot.gifI am so EXCITED about this time in my life and so thankful for the blessing of being a wife in 2013!!!!  I joined this site today and I am looking forward to getting all the information I need to select a great destination spot.  We are in the beginning stages of this and trying to find a spot because we want to get married in May or early June.  As all of you know things get booked so quickly, so I am trying to narrow down some spots that don't require a long plan ride (maxiumum 3 hrs) because we don't want our guest to travel more than they are planning to stay at the hotel.  I am thinking about Dreams and the hotel Now in DR.  We also enjoy the style of Gansevoort in Turks and Caico's so we have to get some informaton and see what dates are available. Wish me luck ladies.

 

Congrads to all of you Brides ;-)  Cheers to happy planning!!

Hello 2013 Brides,

 

I am so blessed and enjoying every part of this journey. I just joined the site today and I am enjoying the posts from all the Brides ;-)

 

I am in the beginning stages of my planning but we are looking to get married in May or early June.  We are deciding between DR or Turks and Caico's but I do not want the plane ride to be longer than 3 hours because I don't want our guest traveling a long way.  At this time the resorts I like are NOW, Excellence in Punta Canta and Gansevoort in Turks, so we shall see what available dates they have since it is about 9  months away.  Wish me luck.

 

Congrads to all of you and happy planning ;-)

i like the lanyards idea... i'm just so torn and don't want to carry tons of stuff down there with me (i'm also lazy and don't want to put all the bags together when we get there either.. i'd rather be laying on the beach haha!!)  i also thought about looking to by jamaican favors when i get there but again, i don't feel like having to go shopping for everyone and would rather enjoy my time on the island.  i'll check out the ebay seller!

Have you thought about a pre-wedding gathering at your house or someone elses? If you want to do OOT bags, you could always assemble them and give them to the attending guests at this event. I've heard of many ladies doing this so that they don't have to travel with a ton of items,  assemble, etc. I wanted to but our families are in different states which would make it tough.  They gave out items such as cups, passport covers, luggage tags.

 OMG!! That's a brilliant idea. Then just take the OOT bags for the guests coming from diff states. Perfect! Thanks MissBubbles

 I know right! I thought so too!.. We'll my family is in Alabama and Fiance's is in Georgia.. :o( hmm... decisions.. Also, for those with all their guests in the same states, it's a great chance for a meet and greet before the DW since most people wont know each other.

    • 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.
