@Meandhim hahah!!! can't wait to see. You should post your welcome bags!! I have everything for mine and have for a while, but i've literally shoved everything in bags and hid them in my den. I have been wanting to post a photo of everything going in my bags, but now I feel too lazy to after storing it all away lol.

@perianjay

 

I will...I'm just waiting on one thing that should be here next week...I'll take a pic just before I poke them away in the suit case never to be seen again until Punta Cana! I also have a pre-flight letter and a luggage tag to post hopefully this weekend.

 

Do you have everything packed in the bags or are you going to fill them when you get there?

@Meandhim Ohh awesome! I was going to try to do luggage tags.. my friend bought me the seals that go over the card, but i'm getting a bit lazy at this point.. so i'm not sure I will follow through haha.

 

I'm going to fill the bags the day that we get to Cancun. We are having our welcome dinner on the second night and that's when I plan to give them out. I've had quite a few friends offer to take some things off our hands so that helps. I don't want to be one of these brides that has to take 17 pieces of luggage.. it's my worst nightmare. Luckily my parents only ever use one luggage, so they have offered to let me use their second luggage. My brother will be a light packer too.. so I plan to shove a few things in his luggage and some of our good friends have offered as well. Hopefully that should suffice.

 

What are you planning to do with yours? assemble once there?

@perianjay

 

Depends on how much room in my luggage I have...we get in around 4 and I will be scheduling a "Welcome Drinks - Meet & Greet" for around 8:00 or 9:00pm...I will pass them out then.

 

We got upgraded to first class so we get 4-70lbs checked in total...so if it cant fit in that it's not coming! I don't have too much decor to bring...I bought a bunch and decided not to bring it so I need to have a pre-wedding sale lol

@perianjay I LOVE those shoes. I'm looking for similar ones. I found 3 pairs of shoes that i'm torn between at the moment. One pair is for sure my dream pair but at $119 I think I'd be a little crazy. If it had a wedged heal I maybe would go for it though haha. I also wasn't sure about the whole heal situation. My seamstress told me I can have 2 inches of heel for my dress but I only want a wedge heel and so i'm struggling now. Is the sand the reason you don't want heels? 

 

I love all the printables you've designed. They are so beautiful and really go well with your style! I should really get a move on a post all my printables I made haha. (I'm more into reading everyone else's threads and ignoring my own :P )

Everything looks fantastic. You are quite talented. Some things I'd do over if I had a chance after seeing all your stuff :)

I love the shoes too. They are def vintage :) I hope you can find them. I'm shocked to hear you wore your sandals once and they are beaten up :( that sucks

@calgarybride2015 aww thanks so much! That means a lot :)

 

I'm shocked my sandals got beaten up too :( I think it's because we were trekking into bushes etc. They are all dirty looking now and even after I cleaned them off after.


@yycbride2016 thanks!! These shoes are $139 on the bhldn website, but after I account for the dollar being changed to US and shipping.. it would come to close to $200. I've been told by a few friends that they have them in stores locally, so i'm on a mission this weekend to find them. I hear Steven Madden sells them. I'm willing to spend around $100ish

 

I too have only a little bit of room for heels since i'm a bit on the taller side being 5'8. I'm not even having my dress hemmed because it was the perfect length with bare feet.

 

I originally didn't want to wear heels because Chester is an inch taller than me..  I don't want to be taller than him in all our pictures.
