Thank You sooo much! Take away! I'm glad I could help. I don't think I'll have a problem.. I HOPE I don't! I've seen brides take a ton more than what I'm taking so I'm pretty sure we'll be fine! I think each person is allowed $300 worth of things. I'm bringing all my receipts just in case! We should only have 1 suitcase full of welcome bags and wedding decor. As far as decor, we are only bringing chair bows and possibly table runners... Oh, and some picture frames, programs, fans, bubbles and menus! Hoping that'll all fit in one large suitcase!

Yes i think you will be just fine! I was thinking of adding some type of chocolate bar or snacks but I'm scarred they might take it away since you're not allowed food... but I'll probably have to search it!! Well again AWESOME job! I can't wait how it all turns out!!

Here's the bridal shower ones... Again, it looks upright before I upload it, and then it flips! Sorry again! :-)

 

 


Love these! I think they would be super cute as favors at each place setting. If you throw them in the gift bags with all the other fun stuff they may not get noticed as much, but they definitely will as an after dinner treat!

Thank You Alexis! That's what I was leaning towards! Decision made! They will be placed at each place setting. :-)

 

And your wedding is in like 20 days!!! Best of luck, I hope it everything you want!

I had my bridal shower this past Saturday! It was awesome! Everything I could have hoped for! Wanted to share the water bottles I made. I just used regular water bottles and took off the original label and replaced it with my own label. I fell in love with this idea when I first saw it and figured I can't drag water bottles to Mexico so it was perfect to incorporate them into my shower!

I received my brochures from Vistaprint today! Can't wait to send them out. I feel like it's a tad too early to send them, but who cares, I think I'll do it anyways! Hoping it'll get people excited! I can't believe I can say "my wedding is NEXT month!"

    So excited for you! It looks like everything is coming together beauifully.  Seeing your planning thread up only reminds that I'm totally slacking on posting mine, it may turn into a post wedding recap.
