      Here are some pics of the engagement ring. We just got our wedding bands and I got 2 very thin plain white gold bands, one for either side of the engagement ring. Max's ring is just a plain white gold band.

                  Our ringbearers wore a short sleeved shirt from old navy, really inexpensive (pictured below) with khaki linen pants from the Children's place that were really inexpensive as well. Not pictured.

                  Here is a picture of the shoes that I wore with my dress. I went barefoot for the ceremony and it was awesome! I ordered them online for $16! I forget the website, but if anyone is interested in learning where I got them, let me know.

                  The groom's suit was khaki and we actually purchased it from Formally Modern Tuxedo. It was made by Ben Sherman and the shirt he wore underneath was cotton/ivory by Ben Sherman. Here is a picture of him:

                    For my guest book I used a photo album from Blick Art Materials pictured below. It was great. We passed it around at each table and everyone wrote in it!

                    OOT Bags (Welcome Bags) - I greeted each guest as they arrived in the lobby and gave them their welcome bag. The welocme bag was a brown kraft paper bag that my Mom stenciled on one side "Welcome to Tulum" and on the other side "Katie & Max 5.1.2009".

                    Included in the bags were:

                    Also included in the bag was a welcome letter with an agenda of events. Here is the wording for the letter:

                    Dear Family and Friends,

                    The wait is finally over! Welcome to sun, sand and relaxation…Welcome to Mexico!! Over the past year we have been dreaming of an intimate wedding with our closest family and friends in a beautiful surrounding. We are sincerely honored that you have traveled this far to share in the joy of our wedding day. We hope that this trip will be as special and memorable for you as it will be for us.

                    Many years from now, when we look back to this time, we’ll remember that being surrounded by the family and friends we hold so dearly was the perfect beginning to our life as husband and wife. Each of you are providing us with special memories that we shall treasure forever.

                    We hope you enjoy the goodies in the bag and they make your stay a little more enjoyable. They are just a small token of our appreciation for your being with us for this amazing time.

                    See you on the beach!

                    With love and appreciation,

                    Katie & Max

                      Our Favors were hand made by sister. We made luggage tags personalized to each guest. Each one was different. Very inexpensive and they turned out really great.

                      My something blue was an anklet that my friend Katalin hand made for me. She makes great jewelry. If you like it, she can make you something to your taste. She'll work with you to make it just the way you want. She incorporated all shades of blue for me.
