Kim, have you come up with a game plan on how you're packing everything yet/how many bags and suitcases you're bringing down?  You have some "extras" that I'd really like to do (Maracas, the post card box) but I'm just afraid I'll have too much stuff to haul down!

Well with our package for our family of 4 we get 6 free bags.

4 can be 70lbs (first class upgrade for b/g yay!) and 2 can be 50lbs.

We hope that we can pack all of our clothes into 2 and push those 70lbs limits.

And we can have 4 for our wedding stuff -- but this is my idea if we use 3:

 

Suitcase 1 - tumblers. I got all but 6? in this suitcase. I have some bubble wrap in the suitcase but there isn't room to pack them each individually

Suitcase 2 - maracas (this is a small 20 inch suitcase)  I am not wrapping these extra whatsoever as Amol's didn't and they were all ok.

Suitcase 3 - frames, vases (sit flat), chest, postcards, glow sticks, fans, flower girl pail, and extra tumblers. I think all the fans will actually go inside the chest itself, so it's not wasted space.  Most of my stuff is small and not bulky other than the pail and chest.

 

Then we can have 3 for clothes and our personal stuff.   If 3 for the wedding aren't enough, then I will ensure I can get all our clothes into the 2 suitcases as I mentioned above.

 

I will hand out all bridal party gifts before we leave.

 

I also plan to bring all wedding day entire or breakables in my carry on (I get 2 as my kids can share 1 between them). So all in all I think I will be ok.

 

Then if all else fails, I am asking friends lol!!!!

@calgarybride2015  I have a random question... I absolutely love your timeline, it is exactly what I was going to order off etsy. I have publisher on my computer so I have been playing around with making my own. I was wondering..what font did you use? I love it! I've played around with a few fonts but I don't like any of them as much as yours.

 

Thanks in advance!

It's called 'throw my hands up in the air' and I got it on dafont.com

To get the heart you must be using this font and you use  shift and \ at the same time.

If you want my timeline I can email it to you :) just private msg me your email!!!

Kim, everything looks awesome! So excited for you

 

I bought glow bracelets too and forgot to put them out haha.  So I have a whole bunch to bust out at random events now :s.  Great idea on the sign and having them on the bar!

 

Your seating chart turned out great.  I think it's definitely important to have one.  We didn't at our other events and you could kind of see people jostling for seats haha

 

Can't wait to read how it all turns out! Have an amazing time in Mexico - I wish I could go back! :)

@@calgarybride2015 How did you format your seating chart if you don't mind me asking? Was it a DIY or did you buy it completed and print it?

 

I actually made that myself in Microsoft Publisher. I highly recommend publisher for anything with 'layers', makes it so much easier!   I can email you it if you would like - PM me your personal email :)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
