  1. Oh you mean the ones we had on the tables? The small ones fit inside the larger ones. We packed about three suitcases of decor items for the wedding. Took them right on the plane. I think altogether we brought 6 pieces of luggage and two carryons.
  2. Calicat the lanterns that were set up around the dancefloor were done by our resort!
  3. Hi everyone! So I'm sure many of you brides are probably AS obsessed with all of the wedding blogs out there as I am (SMP, GWS, Ruffled, etc...), so you can imagine my JUBILATION when our wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty this morning!!!! Too exciting! Take a look http://www.stylemepretty.com/destination-weddings/2011/11/11/los-cabos-wedding-by-floataway-studios/ Natalie
  4. Thanks everyone! ReyDar64, to quote one of my previous posts: Letterpress printing is a printing technique which has been in use in the West since around the 15th Century (Gutenberg used it to manufacture his version of the Bible). It involves locking movable type into the bed of a press, inking it, and rolling or pressing paper against it to form an impression. It's a very time-consuming process, as each invitation needs to be hand fed through the machine. It results in an indentation on the front side of the invitations, and raised print on the back.
  5. No, we brought the lanterns down with us. My coordinator did do the setup on the beach with the kerosene cans, however!

    Sky Lanterns!

    An interesting fact for anyone getting married in Mexico whose resorts said NO: Are beaches private or public? Are the beaches safe? All beaches in Mexico are public property, and are open for everyone, even the beaches in front of the hotels. While most hotels usually don't have a problem with visitors walking through their grounds to get to the beach, it's a good idea to ask, and to be more careful about crossing over private property to get to some of the other beaches. SOOOOO...for any of your rule breakers out there, you could just go ahead and do it!

    Sky Lanterns!

    Hey Katie! Take a read through the thread! I used sky lanterns at my recent wedding in Los Cabos (at Dreams). Check with your resort, looks like every one has their own rules. Cheers!

    Sky Lanterns!

    This was a surprise for our guests, so when the reception concluded, our DJ/MC made an announcement asking our guests to join the bride & groom on the beach for a special surprise. We al walked down to the beach together, and our WC had two hotel workers unwrapping the the lanterns, and handing them out to guests. The kerosene cans were already lit and in the sand. I gave a demo as to what to do (the lighting process, and then everyone went ahead and started sending them off!
  12. Tori you are too funny! I love that video. Sigh. I can't believe it's all done! Except for the thank you notes.... The dresses are very similar to the JCrew ones (which are gorgeous! That's where all our guys wedding clothes were from). The dresses are from AfterSix (Dessy), and were a bit cheaper than the JCrew ones, so we went with them instead: http://www.dessy.com/dresses/bridesmaid/6574/ Peach! The dress is by Alvina Valenta (same design house as Lazaro and Jim Hjelm). It's AV9913. I added straps to mine at the very last second (the week we were departing, at what was suppose to be my final fitting!) because I felt like it was still a bit too low. Best decision I made!!! I felt sooooo comfortable (no "pulling up" every two minutes!).
  13. Hey Avens! The succulents were very easy to get in Cabo (it's the desert!). Not sure about the Mayan as it's so tropical The Billy Balls were touch-and-go up until the day before the wedding(which would have been DEVASTATING, as that is the colour I'd based my entire wedding off of!). Make sure your florist is very clear of your expectations - she'll be able to tell you what she can/can't get, and give you lots of alternatives!
