    @Stina... we're going the last week of Feb 2013. We're still trying to finalize what date will be best for us and for our guests, but thinking it will be the Friday before everyone goes home.

    There are so many decisions to make in choosing a place and gettting things finalized... I am ready for everything to be in place and to start getting excited about all the fun details of planning! :)

     

    It sounds like you girls have a ton going on... @TheWolferts... I'm sorry to hear that you're having to worry about your pup right before you leave... we have 2 dogs, 1 that is older, and I can only imagine trying to take care of her while trying to get ready to leave for the wedding!! I hope you find a solution that will keep your pup comfortable while you're gone and also give you some peace of mind so you can relax and focus your concentration on your wedding!!

     

    -Chris

      Were you talking about these types of drapes?? If so, they are $150 a piece, so $300 to make it look like the below drapes. We are doing the same draping on Gazebo 55 (same Gazebo in picture), but with different color blue sashes.

        The Wolferts- I am also doing the sand dollar ornament place cards and would love to see a picture yours once you are finished with them...which I guess would have to be soon since your date is coming up next weekend! Congrats!  My wedding isn't at El Dorado until February, but I'm already trying to get a head start on all these little details.  Anyways, not sure If i want to try writing names on them or just attaching a card to the sand dollars instead.  Any help would be much appreciated!

            I will post pics later this week or possibly after we get back of our place cards but we wrote "Mexico" in the middle of them, "Riviera Maya" across the top arch and "May 12, 2012" across the bottom arch. The WC said that we needed to differentiate what food each guest was having, so we are doing a dark blue ribbon/ornament string for people getting steak and an aqua green for people getting fish. We decided not to write names directly on them because we had a couple of Julie's and Ryan's and we didnt want to put last names on them either since some of my GFs will obviously not always have that last name lol. I made name tags on card stock paper with the guest's full names and table number. Then I just hole punched one end and put the ribbon through them. Actually pretty easy!

                Wow Great Job!  They look amazing!  Unfortunately my handwriting is not quite as nice as yours...so I'm still kind of on the fence about writing on them.  Very nice work though!

                  Thanks!

                   

                  My mom actually did all of the writing, as well as the calligraphy on our wedding invites. Maybe you could look into having a calligrapher write on them?

                    What kind of pens or markers did you use?  I was looking at some at Michaels, but unsure how they would hold up on the seashells.

                      My mom used a fine tip blue sharpie for the "Riviera Maya" and wedding date, then she had to use a brush to paint the "Mexico" because every tiffany or aqua colored paint pen or sharpie dried too dark.We did some trial runs and also used a fine tip silver paint pen, but it dried into a dark grey, so my poor mom hand painted the Mexico to make me happy with the color
