    Last minute details..... Anyone flying from the US, what are you planning to do with your dress? Are you planning on calling the airline ahead of time to carry your dress on? I am getting nervous about this part!

    It's funny you say the "bride charm"  until I read your post, I thought that I would just pull it out at the airport and they would probably let me by...good thing I read it..lol. I got the Option Plus as well....we also got free seat selection for all our guests after we booked 70 people on the same flight...albeit I had to make a fuss to get it.

    Any of you ladies going to a tanning bed now before we leave?  I'm reading all about that and thinking that maybe I should go...hmmmm thoughts?

    I also went to Michael's to buy a "Card" Box and holy shit, they cost $69.99 plus tax ...so I made my own ...I had the ribbon and bling so the box itself only cost me $2.99....I figure it's light and I'll fill it with a bunch of things so it won't take up too much space in my suit case.

      I'm not very good at negotiating. It goes something like this, "It'd be wonderful if we could have an extra piece of luggage since we're the bride and groom and have helped book all these guests on Air Transat flights." Travel agent "I'll see how much first class will cost you." Me in a small voice, "nevermind...." Nice that you got your guests free seat selection! We didn't have nearly as many guests, so we didn't get anything additional unfortunately. Option plus sounds good though. I don't think they'll care that much at the airport that we're on our way to our wedding because I imagine there will be 7 other couples on our same flight that are as well. I do however think they will help me out with my dress. I've heard they have a special bride closet on the planes, but even if they don't I've shoved it in a pretty small overhead bin already with not much of a problem.

      I'm getting a spray tan and then using tanning lotion to extend that until the wedding. I promised my Mom a long time ago to stop going to tanning beds. Depending on how soon your wedding is after you leave, a spray tan could look really phenomenal! I'm doing my trial tan in two days to make sure it's not orange.

      I had some major issues when I originally booked so me it wasn't so much negotiating but yelling until they have me something... I have read on their website that wedding dresses are no problem for carry on, but they don't have a closet so you will have to lay it flat  in the overhead... my dress is huge once I put it in no one will be able to get anything else in there! LOL

       

      I am going tanning, I know that it isn't good for you, but a) I spent all summer in the shade to make sure that I didn't have stupid tan lines, and B) I figure a base tan before I go is better than a burn when I get there, because no matter what if I don't have at least a base I always burn... and I think that burning is worse then a few minutes in a tanning bed, or at least that is what I am telling myself...

      Do you know how long the spray tan lasts?   We arrive Saturday and I get married on the Wednesday. Also, won't swimming in the pool and ocean take it off?

        I totally understand going tanning just for a special event. I definitely didn't mean it as putting down anyone who is doing it, just explaining why I'm not getting a base tan when in a lot of ways it would be smart to. Burning is definitely the worst and I hope that I slather on enough sunscreen to avoid it.

        That's part of the reason for the trial this week. I want to see how long it lasts. I've had some before that have lasted 8 days and I'm going to a place where they airbrush it so it lasts longer, instead of just the stand up automated spritzing. (that always makes me think of Ross in Friends getting his orange spray tan on one side) We have a similar schedule to you, arriving on Sunday and wedding on Thursday. Swimming in the pool and ocean definitely will make it fade but the lady I'm going to says you can use this extender lotion? I'm not sure, but I'm willing to try it to see how it works. So all in all, a spray tan is probably not the best idea and using a tanning bed would last longer. I'll let you know how my trial goes :)
