have you found water proof paper?
I am also curious to know about waterproof labels...because that's exactly what we have in mind but we want to make sure it will withstand the heat / water / LOTS of use. We're thinking about Bubba Kegs (midsize) with a clear label with our monogram on it. This way, people can also peel the logo off after the trip and use the bubba kegs...

Are we on the same page with all of this? Please keep me posted...thanks :)

We are having trouble finding some favors for the guys in our group? Any ideas on things they might use? We are doing koozies, snacks, and medicines for sure...

I ordered my stickers for my mugs from zazzle. They are however white, not clear. I would buy some cheap clear labels and test them out.

I had a hard time brain storming for ideas for the guys, too. In the end.....all of the guests got almost exactly the same OOT bags....(i.e. thank you letter, map, big-day timeline, local maps, custom-labeled water bottles, mini-sunscreen packets, snacks

except...
the ladies got tropical smelling lip balms and a cute pashmina I purchased locally
and
the boys got mini-liquor bottles, flavor-less lip balms, and flip flops

SDNative-I love the idea for mini liquor bottles. Do you, or any of you ladies, know the rules on putting the liquor bottles in your luggage? Will they let you take the bottles over to Mexico if you pack them in your checked luggagehuh.gif

I actually just went thru the stuff we have and realized I forgot a few things. First of all, we did one bag per party so if a couple was there, they got one bag with stuff for both. If it was a single guy or girl, they got one bag with just stuff for them. So the things that we gave:

pashminas

flip flops for everyone

and ball caps or visors

custom beer cozy's

votives (beach theme)

sunscreen

dramamine (boat to our wedding)

advil

water bottles (with our logo)

deck of cards

spanish book

brochure (vistaprint)

 

Probably a few more odds and ends that I am forgetting. People loved them though.

I think the drinks for dummies are a good idea... remember going to the all inclusive resorts and being clueless as what to order :P

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
