    another question.... I paid for all of the BM dresses and MOH shoes. Is a gift for them still appropriate? I thought maybe we could find something small in mexico as a gift/souvenir. We are going to the silver factory and am hoping to find cheap silver jewlery. As for th GM only 1 of the original boys asked is coming...maybe we'll just buy them drinks at the resort. LOL
    What did you girls do for gifts?

                Haha, I honestly don't think anyone is "expecting" gifts from you to be honest :)

                I'd say paying for the dresses and MOH shoes is quite a gift. I didn't pay for dresses and shoes at all, although I did tell them they could wear whatever they wanted as long as it was cute, black and to their knees with black shoes. More cocktail attire almost, I figured if I wasn't paying for their attire I couldn't force them to wear whatever I wanted.

                Soooo to answer you're question I'm doing OOT bags for the guests and a special OOT bag for the wedding party.

                For my MOH & FI's BM I made custom Converse (I made some for FI & I too) with their names on them.

                For the bridesmaids I have the following so far:

                Little bag to give to them before we leave:
                - Custom passport covers of vintage maps of Mexico and vintage Mexican stamps all stitched together
                - Neck pillow for the flight
                - Homemade bubble bath and or bath salts
                - Maybe luggage tags

                In OOT bag for BM's/MOH at resort I'll hand out upon their arrival to the hotel:

                Big black and white striped beach bags
                - black pashmina
                - JCrew flip flops
                - sleep mask
                - dry erase door hanger
                - room key/tip holder on wristlet
                - cocktails for Dummies book
                - common Spanish phrases book
                - travel candle
                - custom matches
                - necklace made by me
                - hair feather fascinator made by me
                - deck of cards
                - lip balm
                - welcome letter and card
                - guest room finder
                - wedding week timeline
                - maraca
                - going to the dollar store forr buy repellant, hangover kit stuff and vitamins, snacks and protein bars.

                The boys will have messenger bags with:

                - Regular Converse
                - Fun argyle socks and tie for the wedding
                - Flip flops
                - dry erase door hanger
                - room key/tip holder on wristlet
                - cocktails for Dummies book
                - common Spanish phrases book
                - travel candle
                - custom matches
                - deck of cards
                - lip balm
                - welcome letter and card
                - guest room finder
                - wedding week timeline
                - maraca
                - going to the dollar store forr buy repellant, hangover kit stuff and vitamins, snacks and protein bars.

                Holy smokes... I think I've gotten totally out of control!!!

                Not until just now listing everything out have I realized that I need to calm down.

                  lolo - I bought our wedding party attire too and that was their gift. Now that we're back and I have my pics I'm putting together a frame with a wedding party pic in it for each couple, shot glasses and a bottle of tequila for the boys, and something small for the girls that I haven't figured out yet lol. And yes, it has been months since my wedding.... that's how "on the ball" I am haha. I suck.

                    Nicole that's an awesome gift! My BF did something similar, just gave us all an empty picture frame before the wedding and the picture after.
