What brand of extensions will you be using? Do you swim and can it get wet??

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.

I also got my bridesmaids robes!! Looks like we may have used the same seller silkandmore? I got myself a white and they got dark purple. I love the robes!!!

 

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!

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).

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
