Hey girls.. Im trying to figure out what i want to do for my STDs... and I like the message in a bottle idea. I found great websites for all the parts and started adding up the cost, not sure how thats gonna go. the invitations themselves arent too bad... im worried about the shipping

 

for those of you who have done a message in a bottle, how much did u spend on shipping? i know stamps are up to like 0.41 each already...

I read somewhere that for the glass bottles, it ranges from $1.50 to $2+ per bottle depends on how much sand you put in there. For plastic ones, it is btw $1.20 to $1.50 depending on amount of sand. I am planning on hand delivering most of them (work and friends close by whom we visit quite often).

I did message in a bottle STD and I did plastic bottles with corks. I didnt use a box because the post office doesnt require one if they are plastic and sealed. I spent about $1.40 on each invite. It depends alot on how much sad you use. I only did enough to get the idea otherwise I would have spent a fortune.

It definitely depends on if you use glass or plastic, the size of the bottle, and how much sand. We had a large glass bottle, about 1/2" of sand, and a SMALL guestlist (or I probably would've gone a different route). We also shipped priority - which was likely not necessary. Ours were about $5 per box.

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
