Okay Ladies ... My FAKE ring for Mexico arrived today!

 

A few of you asked me about it so I hope this helps!

I feel like it's hard to give a review without wearing it and getting it wet and seeing how it wears but from first look it looks really good haha I picked the closest style to my real ring as possible the FI loved it as he is very pro me wearing a fake ring for most of our trip minus the wedding day. I just didn't want to worry about it on the boat, at the pool or playing at the beach and it's our wedding and honeymoon so I really wanted to have a ring on my finger! This way we both won't stress about it and we can keep it locked in the room safe. I looked around at a few sites and some fake ring are pricey ( $100 to $300) .. I really didn't want to spend a lot I even considered going the Claire's haha but I looked online and found the one pictured below on Overstock.com it had really good reviews so I just went for it! It was only $18.22 pretty great deal I honestly didn't know what to expect .. but it look pretty nice!

 

This is how it came after I took it out of the small soft yellow envelope it came in

This is it on my finger it came with both the Engagement and Wedding Band

This is my REAL Ring .. So I think the fake is pretty good for $18.22 haha

After I wear it a in Mexico I will leave a full review for it on Overstock.com

Can't tell to me! Yes of course I can see the difference between the two but since you won't be wearing them at the same time noone will be the wiser.

 

At Spence Diamonds you can get a replica before yours is made or if your spouse took a payment plan. I had the replica twice (husband didn't want to bring real ring to Cuba to propose and then again when I waited for my new ring to be made (changed my engagement ring from the original))

Phew - anyways at quick glance you really couldn't tell. You'd have to know diamonds well to spot the differences. It's a good idea if you wanna wear it somewhere but are scared to lose it :)

@@SteeleTheSpotlight that's a really good fake ring! especially for under $20! 

 

I really don't think anyone will notice unless they ask to see it up close :), but most of that will probably happen on the wedding day so you're good!

I haven't posted in forever cause .. I'm too busy FREAKIN planning a wedding lol... 38 days!

 

I'm making my girls a cute travel bags and sending them out next week!

I ordered them these adorable luggage tags I custom made on Zazzle.

They had a 50% off sale on luggage tags last week. The look even better than I expected!

 

They say " Bride's Entourage Bridesmaid" one one side and the other says Mrs. XXXXXX ( with there last name)

I did there last names cause they are all newlyweds and I thought it would be cute to put all there new last names on them!

 

I also oder a Hubby/Wifey one for some of our bags!

 

 

I also bought the clear trvel TSA bags from Sephora ...

Then I'm loading them up with cute travel procuts

- mini hairspay

- rosewater mist

- chapstick

- dry shampoo

- hair tie

- luggage tag

- hydrating face wipes

- anti bacterial

- lotion

- mini emery board

 

I'll post a photo when there are all pit together!

 

 

Here are the tags

Smells just like MIss Dior Cherie .... amazing!

My Robes came in!

 

They fit amazing and the frabric feels better than I expected!

The only down side was she forgot one of them .. I emailed her right away and she said she would get it to me ASAP and apologized! I also had her add belt loops as they normally don't come with any. It was FREE of charge.

Overall I'm very pleased, just wished I recived them all at once!

 

Here are the photos ...

It was a good purchase I think the girls will look adorable in them! I'm going to wash them before i pack them .. evryone says they soften up with a few washes enev though they don't really feel rough! The fabric is much nicer than I was expecting!

They look just like the photos! I'm glad I went with a large cause the shoulder just barley fit! The lengh is great on my I hope these look good lengh wise on them!

Hangover Bags!

 

So I wante dthe musilin bags so bad I just couldn't justify the price at around $3.50 per bag .. I tried to find a chearper way and still have them look cute.

 

Our splurges were the wedding chicks canvas bags and the bubba kegs!

 

So I Decied to print my own sticker (6.00 for 100) and order small red paper bags (5.00 for 4 dozen)

I will post one when they are done I'll be stuffing them in Mexico

 

The sticker turned out great!

So I will fill the paper bag then fold the top down and place the sticker on to hold it shut .. cute cheap and gets the point across! Excited I found a cheap sloution that still looks cute!

@@SteeleTheSpotlight I've been wondering how your wedding planning is going. It's coming up quick!

 

I can see you've been busy! Everything looks great, really love the luggage tags. What a great idea! And your bridesmaids travel bags are great. I'll have to drop by sephora to try that land cream.

 

As for the robes, thanks for the review! How are the sizes, are they true to size or do they fit smaller or bigger?
