    Having just returned, I would caution that not everyone will have a leisurely wait at MBJ airport. Our shuttle got us there 2.5 hours before departure, but the line for departure customs/security was weaving back and forth throughout the entire check-in area (it was like Disneyland rides!). We checked in quickly with our airline, jumped in the line and had under 45 minutes to spare, which is enough to be comfortable, but I certainly didn't have time to hang out and eat after checking in, as there was no way to know how quickly that line would move.


    The gift cards are a great idea, but I wouldn't count on all your guests having an opportunity to use them, which would be a shame.

      I agree with LisaAndDre as well! I never take favors home with me unless they are edible or used for drinking purposes :)

      I'm getting married in Mexico, and we're not allowed to bring liquids, food or candy into the country... 

      so I'm also lingering with the idea of shot glasses. Although it would be nice to order chocolate truffles from a local chocolate store in Mexico. i have to do some research...


      Thanks for sharing your ideas guys! this has been really helpful!

      We are doing bottle openers as our favors.  Like previously mentioned we rarely take home favors, but we thought this is something our group of people will use.  We also chose not to personalize them as sometimes I hate having other peoples personalized stuff taking over my house!

        I ordered some envelope seals from vistaprint, and some address labels and I put them on hand santizers from Bath & Body Works and little tubs of lip balm that I found at dollarama (2 for 1.25!) This is how they came out. (I also posted this on a thread called everything you can do with vistaprint, which has other great ideas!!) Of course I had to order the free 100 postcards too!

          I love the gift card idea.. But it could add up depending on number of guests=/ I'm not sure what were doing! We were thinking personalized tequila bottles and shot glasses..
