  1. Sorry....so long to reply!!! They are called invitation brads....ordered them on line.....LCIpaper.com. You can also do a search for invitation brads
  2. I was torn between the starfish and sand dollars....but I the story of the starfish got me......sand dollar story is too religious for me! For our tables we did not use numbers.....we used areas of Mexico....particularly places we have been. Framed diffent beach scenes w/ the different area names. Starfish place card holder
  3. We created this on vista print....super easy but time consuming if you don't have something to go by to organize your thoughts...hope this helps
  4. I know they where such a "score".....unfortunately I got them on the east coast at the christmas tree shoppe last summer....
  5. this is our welcome letter and events.....printed it on really tropical paper that I got at staples welcome letter and itinery with the flower mono on 2.docx
  6. Hey.....the resort photog take tons of pics and you look at them and pick the ones you want. I opted out of the video and got 25 more prints. The photog and video is a few before shots but basically the the ceremony.....with some shots after of bride and groom, family, friends etc. They stay a bit through the cocktail but that's it. I'm sure anything is negotiable for a price....or you could hire and outside vendor which you will need to pay either a day pass for or one night stay.....you have to work that out with the WC. We where very happy with the pics from the resort photog. As far as the beach location......absolutely no shade, so if it's a hot day you will be baking!!! El Patio has no a/c so again if it's hot.......and generally there is a charge of $750. You can also consider the pool terrace which seemed to get shade earlier or the function room which had a/c, private patio and a great view. You will have plenty of options they will show you when you get down there. I brought complete decor.....that is a total personal choice. If you use el patio or the italion restaurant.....I would not use additional decor.....those rooms are both really pretty. As far as the sound/DJ. There is no dj included....you can hire the resort dj or an outside vendor. The resort does suppy sound for the ceremony w/ a man to run you music. You can rent the equipment for the reception and us an ipod......but the music makes any party so you may want to consider hiring someone, especially if you are having a crowd. I used DJ Mannia.....awesome, awesome, awesome.....enough said!!!! Hope this helps!!! Feel free to ask away........
  7. I got them at the Christmas Tree Shoppe.....I think they are just on the east coast. How many would you need??? I think I have about 7 or 8 left.
  8. this is a bunch of stuff......welcome letter, key card holder, spanish phrase cards, readings (non-religious), trivia game etc These two docs are the letter and trivia game (of course you would change the names...lol) that was read and played in the van ride down to the resort.....6 vans....T-shirts given to the person who answered the least amount correct......T's made on Vistaprint, of course!!!! Key card template....not sure how good! Reading we used We used really tropical beachy stationary for the welcome letter This card we taped together and laminated them. They where on the key card holder/lanyard OMG......but if 1 on you use one thing here then I've payed it forward.....good luck......happy planning!!!!!!

  9. We got married on 10/2/10, just getting around to getting these pictures posted…..so sorry….I got so many awesome ideas from the gals on this forum, I’ve got to pay it forward. Lots of ramdom and organized stuff…..lol….!! This is my planning thread!!!! This was my inspiration for my colors and the florist did an amazing job reproducing this in Mexico This is a picture of the pre-departure boxes I sent to all my guests 2 weeks before the trip…..They had The travel brochure (created on Vistaprint), Spanish for Dummies handbooks, puzzle books, palm tree pens, luggage tags, cards displaying the layout of the resort (vistaprint), Spread Love not Germs baggies (tissue and hand sani), peanuts, gum and mints! Everyone loved getting the packages and they psyched everyone up for the trip!!! Next is Pictures of my OOT Bags! They had Towels, cd’s, Wedding Survival kits, Coozies (which everyone used because the resort served cans of Bud-light!) travel candels, disposable cameras, lanyards/key card holders, bags of candy (in organge paper bags w/ a label on in that said “how sweet it is†Kevin and I each picked our 2 favorites, sorry no pics), do not disturb signs! Feel like I’m forgetting something but it was 5 months ago…..oh a welcome letter….I’ll add that stuff at the end!! I used yellow, pink and white straw bags and tied on XL postcards (vista print, again!) PS…..for the single guys I used drawstring nylon backpacks. No pics of the lanyards….got the basic idea from the forum and just personalized them!!! These next pictures are just random décor at the reception etc: This is set at home but this is the general idea on the plates….maracas (group favorite) and menu cards…Our table numbers where pictures of beachs w/ names of different areas of mexico ie: cancun, cabo, playa del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras etc, the seating cards (starfish) where all lined up in a big basket of sand……Chair sashes, flip flops, pashminas, ring bearerer pillow??.....lol …… The above picture actual table at the wedding!!!! Hey didn’t think I had one….great!!! Well that’s about it for now …..this wedding consumed so much of my life, hard to believe it’s all over!!! If I can share one piece of advice……..Enjoy every second, it is a memory faster than you can imagine!!!!!
  10. Here is a copy of my welcome letter with our intinery for the weekend......hope this helps!!! welcome letter and itinery with the flower mono on 2.docx
  11. I carried it on........in my review I comment on how TERRIBLE AIRTRAN is. Some of this is due to how they regarded me with my WEDDING dress. They jammed it into an already stuffed overhead on the first leg of the trip. Good thing my package included steaming our wedding attire!!!! Hopefully you are not flying airtran but if you are arrive very early and just stake your claim of the overhead!!! One flight attendant was about to take it and check it.....thank god one took pity on me.......so wrinkled or under the plane, hopefully making to mexico!! Wrinkled was better
  12. makes me kind of sad......but I smile everytime I think of the week or look at a picture----made great long lasting memories, not just for my wedding but spending such a fabulous weekend with my family and friends!!!
  13. I got the maracas is all pink and orange. I got them online at amols.com I called the customer support line to ask about specific colors. They were awesome, easy to deal with and had them in a couple weeks time. I think they were $1.99 a pair....I thought that was a steal.
  14. this is a set up on my table at home.....looked beautiful all lit up with table all set up at the resort!
  15. Oh Wendy the pictures are gorgeous!!! I love you accessories!!!
