I have a box of 25 unopened...I can check how much it will cost to ship to you...what is your zip code? 

 

I would sell them for $1.30 a piece (what I paid)  x 25 = $32.50 plus whatever the  cheapest shipping cost is....

As I mnetioned before, we do not have a large wedding party. My mother is my Matron of Honor and my future step-son is the Best Man. My Dad passed nearly 19 years ago, so my brother will be giving me away. Here are the gifts we got for them and some other important people:

 

For my Mom, my MOH:

 

A personalized handkerchief - I ordered on Etsy (Embroidery By Lina)

 

900x900px-LL-32e07905_MomsHanky.jpeg

 

Alex and Ani "Charity By Design" Butterfly Expandable Wire Bracelet in Russian Gold - we love butterflies (a sign of my Dad

 

LL

 

 

For my stepson, the Best Man (he is almost 17) - he can keep this on top of his dresser to hold his things:

 

LL

For my brother who is giving me away - a monogrammed business card holder (he just accepted a big new job offer!):

 

700

 

For my BFF who helped me with so many of my DIY projects & was just a great sounding board for the past year & a half - she is also giving a speech/toast to us:

 

Alex and Ani "Charity By Design" Best Friends Bangle Bracelet, set of 2 in Russian Gold (one for me & one for her!)

 

700

 

For our Civil Ceremony Witnesses - we needed 4 witnesses - so we have 2 couples (good friends) who are our "official Mexico witnesses.") - We got them Gift Cards to their favorite restaurants in town.

 

Last, but certainly NOT LEAST - for my FI...

 

Sterling Blue Nautical Compass Cuffllinks - with an engravable whale back closure - I engraved our wedding date. Very significant since we are boaters, Big "water" people, with a nautical themed wedding - he is going to LOVE THEM!

700

I am so excited to get this thing started!  xoxo  Thanks for reading!

    • 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.
