Haha that is totally okay someone needs to take his side every now and again and I need to be brought back down to reality haha So thanks for your comments it made me laugh and I had to read to my FI .. he was so excited haha.

 

Go for it steal anything you want too! That is why I'm taking the time to share! I have stole so much from other Brides on here and that's what makes this Forum so amazing is being about to steal other girls ideas that they stole for someone else haha. It makes me feel like it's worth it to upload pictures when it helps other Brides!

 

 

@perianjay

Thanks girl! So glad you like them! We aren't really doing any ceremony decor because the ceremony will only last 15 min but I think the fans will look cute on the chairs and give a splash of color and be actually useful and people can take them to the cocktail hour or use them at dinner or whatever it will be hot! I really love the way they turned out and I only got one burn from the hot glue gun hahaha.

Thanks girls! Haha I know it's freakin nuts! I'm glad others agree!

 

So two hours, almost two rolls of ribbon, 15 hot glue sticks, and 6 stems of orange orchids and a little help from the FI we have fans for our wedding! YAY one more thing to check off the list!

NO I actually used a travel agent that was recommended in Ontario. Hopefully all will be good now that everything is booked and confirmed and paid up. I hope there won't be any issues with their travel.

 

I love the photo's too. The more photo's the better I think. lol

 

Hey Kristy - who was the travel agent? Just curious, but could also prevent someone else having a bad experience. Hope things are working out ok now.

Thanks! I'm stealing the program to put on top of them from you girl! Yours look amazing!


@JoannaBanana

 

Love those colors ... very pretty. It's a lot of color so it may give you more options haha.

 

I was never a big orange person but it was fun and bright and fit Mexico and I LOVE gold!

I decided to go monochromatic because I didn't want things to get crazy if I couldn't find the exact shade of orange I wanted also I'm head over heels in love with all things pastel ( This way I could get peach) but I felt like that wasn't totally Mexico so by combining all my thoughts lol I came up with what I have haha

Wow! Everything looks so great! I'm not a fan of orange at all, but I absolutely love what you've done with it! I's gorgeous and the fans are just beautiful!! Another one who's date is getting so close! I can't wait to see your pictures from your wedding. I'm sure they'll be stunning!

The fans came out beautifully! This may be another idea I'm going to have to steal from you. Definitely pack them in Rubbermaid containers, it would be a shame if those orchids got crushed.

Thanks! I love them I will definitely take your advice on the Rubbermaid! If you make yours post pictures! I think it was fun to make and really pretty easy and the FI actually helped haha he got his tools involved to take all the Orchids off the stem haha which made my life much faster and the hot glue gun was must for anyone doing this project!

I also recommended the Rubbermaid containers. I used them for all the smaller stuff and then just packed them into my suitcase. Made packing the little stuff much more easy!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
