    Josie- those sandals are very original; I'll have to look into them. Thanks for the suggestion!

    One more question for all of you: on your invitations what time are you putting for your ceremony?

    My ceremony will be at sunset & the WC said that will be either 5 or 6 pm…..so….do I just put “at sunset” on the invite and then include an itinerary in the welcome bag of the exact time once I know?

    Thanks!

      I'd definitely put "sunset" and include the exact time on the welcome letter/itinerary. My wedding is at like 3, so I didnt really have this issue. I included an "information card" (same size as response card) with a bunch of details on the wedding/welcome dinner, etc. And I put "Times are subject to change" so that everyone knew nothing is set in stone! I'll provide final details to them when they check in :)

        Hey Lori- Welcome to the best forum ever :) Thanks for sharing your pics! I was wondering how far of a drive is it from the resort to Xel-Ha?

          Paige2010 - It is about an hours drive south from the resort :) It's not too bad of a drive though, there's a lot of scenery to look at along the way! Plus our van's tour guide had a ton of interesting facts about Xel-Ha and Tulum!

              Have any of you started you OOT bags? I am just starting...I know I am way behind but if any of you have any awesome ideas I would love to hear from you!! Or any online retailers you think are good. I have checked all the threads on OOT bags and I have some ideas but I am kinda overwhelmed by all of them. I also don't know the exact number of guests so I find it hard to get started....I am a little stressed!!!

                Hi Lisa,
                I found cute beach bags on sale this week @ Wal-Mart for $5 each (they also have mesh bags for $3) that I am using. I still have 6 months until my wedding, but know I won’t be able to find beach bags in Jan. Here is my (tentative) list so far:
                Word Puzzles/ Sodoku books
                Decks of cards
                First Aid Kits (bandaids, Pepto, Motrin, Tylenol) from Costco

                Maybes:
                A mini-wallet/purse (can be used as a key card/money holder)
                pashmina
                travel mug (I’ve heard these are a hit)

                I really like Wedding Favors, Bridal Shower Favors, Party Favors by Beau-coup and may get a few personalized items to include as well.

                I'd love to hear what you decide to include. Keep us updated:)

                  sorry cant help im not doing them there is only 4 of us.when will you know how many guests you have got?

                  i think mrsmarch list is fine.i know some of the ladies put sun tan lotion in?waterproof wallets are suppose to be a hit?i dont want to sound cheeky but are you going for lots of cheap little bits or are you going expensive?i know some do the towel thing but that would be expensive.

                  i think what ever they get they will like it.i know i would

                    We have about 60 guests, I am thinking a bag in the $20 range per person is good. But once you buy the mugs and the tote bags it doesn't leave you much else. I have been checking dollar stores and walmart here constantly because I see all the other brides that can find deal but apparently I am looking in the wrong place because I haven't been able to find anything!!

                    Thanks mrsMarch for your ideas!

                    I will keep you updated as to what I get. thanks for your help ladies.

                      Lisa-
                      I'm using Promotional Tote Bags | Custom Tote bags | Custom Printed Tote Bags to buy my bags. i debated for a long time and decided not to put my monogram on them because i dont think people will use them again. Instead I'm either going to leave them blank and put a tag with our monogram, or put a logo on the bag that has palm trees and says "Playa Del Carmen" but not our names.

                      As far as what to put in them. I'm going to do a welcome letter, mugs, sunscreen, asprin, maybe a deck of cards, breathmints or gum, maybe a little fan & possibly some bottled water. I'll keep you posted on any more decisions :)
