    To do in no particular order in the next 4 weeks:

    Purchase another bandeau bikini (need to avoid tan lines for the first 3 days)

    Complete Reception playlist (songs chosen but not organized)

    Complete mock-ups for WC use

    Get E-Ring polished and photo ready

    Purchase frames for all signage (picked out, just need to make the trip)

    Figure out veil situation (maybe alterations)

    Contact USPS to hold mail delivery for 2 weeks

    Contact banks for out of country transactions

    Order Bouquet charm

     

    Items with hard dates:

    04/20 Mail remaining Pre-Travel Packages (half were hand delivered to guest in Portland and Seattle)

    04/20 2nd fitting and groom alterations

    05/11 Hair Extensions Install

    05/12 Complete all packing

    05/12 Brazilian

    05/14 Shellac Mani/Pedi and Fresh set of lash extensions

    05/15 Depart for Mexico

     

    On another note, my guestbook puzzle cam in today... very happy with it!

      We are just doing a card box for the AHR, we told people no gifts so I feel like it sends the wrong message. I'm sure people will bring cards but they can just go on cake table/next to guest book, etc. not gong to worry about bringing a box for them.

        I am now wondering if I should put more in their bags.  I got them bikinis (Fig Leaves), flip flops (Havaianas - they're the BEST), necklaces (Etsy), and bags (Vistaprint).  Maybe I will pick them up magazines in the airport or lotion at Bath & Body Works.  BTW, I LOVE the robes.  I really wanted to do robes until one of my bridesmaids happened to get me and my maid of honor robes for the holidays.  I quickly had to change my plan and went with bikinis instead.

        Thanks Girls!  

         

        Yes I got them from Silkandmore.  The owner was so great!  The robes came all the way from India and it only took 2 weeks?  Maybe a little longer.  I washed and steamed them when they arrived.  They fit the girls perfectly - such a hit.  I can't wait to take photos of us wearing them the morning of the wedding!

            Omg that sucks. Wedding planning is enough stress on its own without anything else piled on.

              My Tech uses the  Resse Roberts lash extension line.  I honestly have never gone swimming in them, but then again I started getting them installed this past January I don't live in a warm enough climate to swim during the winter months.  I have been in jacuzzis, saunas and shower daily without any issues. the pic below is my beofre and after pic.  I may go with a fuller set for the wedding, we'll see.

                  I'm gonna show some ignorance here... but are those "eyelash extensions"?  I didn't even know such a thing was possible.  Where do you get something like that done, how do they do it?  Everything about this is surprising to me.

                    Has anyone had experience with Events Wedding Cancun and/or Raffaele with Mayan hospitality? We booked them for decor and they seem very nice and reliable! Just want to know if anyone has ever worked with them! Let me know!!

                      I'm filling out my DJ info form.  Sorting out all of the special songs.  For father/daughter, mother/son dances are you guys dancing for the full length of your songs?  I want to do The Best Day (Taylor Swift), but it's 4 min 10 sec.  Feel like it's a bit long ... but maybe I'm wrong.  I'm just being conscientious of how little time we have for the party (8:30-11pm).
