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.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
