@calgarybride2015 $2 Advil tubes? Wow, those are a good deal! I'll have to drop by the dollarama over here and grab them! Thanks for the tip


They are in the bathroom section. In our anyways all the Meds are with the toothpaste and stuff. Walmart and such sell them too but they are a bit more expensive I believe.

So, I got some packages this week and i'm really happy with everything that came in..

 

First of all.. my shoes for the ceremony came! I ordered these beautiful custom made leather shoes off of an Etsy vendor. They are real italian leather and came all the way from Cyprus.. I paid $60 for them. I really couldn't say no for that price! They are exactly what I wanted out of my ceremony shoes.

I also found my reception shoes. I decided to wear a cute, simple strappy heel for the evening (once all of the formal photos are done and it's ok for me to be taller than my FI - haha)

I found these from Aldo..

Next is Chester's bow tie.. Our wedding colours are Coral/Blush, Mint, Champagne and Gold - Yes, many colours!

We are keeping the mint to more of a 'touch of mint' because coral is the predominant colour. My BM's are wearing coral and Chester's GM are also wearing coral bow ties, but I wanted Chester to look a bit different and stand out as the groom. I found this bow tie on Etsy and thought it was perfect.

I also received my girls' robes today.. I ordered these from DHGATE so I was a bit nervous to see the quality. They are surprisingly great quality for the price I paid ($8 per robe). They are a bit longer than I had expected, but not a big deal. Also, i'm glad I ordered them a size bigger because they aren't 100% true to American/Canadian sizing.. they are definitely a smaller fit.

And lastly is an updated photo of my flower crown. I added some greenery around the crown..(don't mind the Corgi photobomb in the back - haha)

I ordered maraca tags yesterday (thanks to @veryvalentine - I hope you don't mind! I got similar ones to yours, but it was because I loved yours so much!!) Chester and I plan on buying all of the maracas in Mexico. Beach Palace is a few steps away from the malls in Cancun.

Ohh, I love all the new stuff!! I need to look into the robes. Our whole bridal party is petite so the sizes should be perfect. I find regular robes are much too big. You also can't beat those prices!! 

 

I love things coming into the mail!!

@TinkerSofi Thanks!! I really couldn't beat it at all.

Yea.. part of my bridal party is petite as well and the other two i'd say would wear a medium. These robes don't have nearly as much material so I'm glad I went a bit bigger because even if there's a bit of extra material, it can easily just be wrapped underneath. I'm reallly really pleased with the robes for the price though. They were totally worth it. I ended up paying $60ish with the conversion to USD and I bought 5. (Free shipping!)

WOW!!!  I love your custom shoes!  how amazing is that!

 

Also, the robes!!!!!  I need to get those.  I felt like I was missing an extra gift for my BMs so that's what it's going to be.

love them and they will look amaze in pictures.

 

Aww that's so great that you got the tags.  They took a 4 weeks to come as they also came in from Singapore like the BM dresses. I don't mind at all...we are a team, girl!!!! 

 

The crown looks amazing with the final touch!! :)

@asshtayy Thanks girl!! I was so happy with everything when it came in this week. Especially my rose gold leather sandals.. I didn't get to see an exact photo of them since I custom chose the colours and styles, so i'm happy they came out looking how I wanted them to!

@veryvalentine Thanks!! :)

 

I just searched in DHGATE for Kimono robes and they were one of the first ones that came up. Order soon because they took about one month to arrive. Also, please make sure to order a size bigger than you think you'd wear. I usually wear a medium and I bought a large and it fits me like a medium would. Sizes from China seem to fit a bit different than here for sure. I'm happy I did that though, because when I purchased them I had originally chose medium and then I contacted the seller to change it.

 

I'm soo happy with how the shoes turned out! :) 


@veryvalentine They are from dhgate.com :)
