@smileitseb Glad I could help! LOL  Are you getting Hair & Makeup done by the spa. I have too many girls to bring an outside vendor and I feel like I am one of the only brides who is which make me nervous.

@smileitseb Did you buys the TSA locks?

I had Maira. She is nice, but do be sure to print out every correspondence and bring it to the meeting.

We used TSA approved locks for peace of mind.

I was starting to feel under the weather a few days before we left... I drank a lot of all-natural fruit juice with vitamin A, C, & E. I also started taking Zicam. And sleep. Get plenty of sleep. All of this did the trick. Oh, and girl. Don't forget to drink a lot of water! Flying dehydrates you... you want to be well-hydrated for great skin and to feel fantastic on your wedding day! :)


@pddcmc oh I see, inconsistent sounds about right based on some other experiences I've read about..I need to be sure to document everything I discuss with the resort too @smileitseb. Don't fret, it will work out. Your wedding will be amazing and good thing you found out about the candles today now you will go prepared to discuss options when you arrive. Are you still planning to travel with your lighting set up? In my opinion you should negotiate and waive the fee for the electric candle decor. Te your TA to handle it so you can focus on the other details with packing


@pddcmc when referencing stems, I was wondering how the place cards stood up in the glass I just tried to take a closer look and it seems to be a toothpick? So would I need to create my own place cards and connect to a toothpick? Will the resort tell me what the dimensions of the place cards should be to fit in the tequila shots?

Yes, if you are doing this idea, you need the place cards to be made out and have something on the end. Like you saw, I used toothpicks. Unfortunately, I was under the impression that Maira would attach something to the cards as long as I brought them. Well, I was mistaken. So, my girls and I got toothpicks from a restaurant and used the super glue that I brought just in case (thank goodness!) and attached the toothpicks to the cards in about 5 minutes.

We designed our place cards and table numbers and had them printed at FedEx (which now owns Kinkos... I didn't know that before lol). I used the standard dimensions 3.5" x 2"


I love him & he loves me, we'll be married by the sea.
