I saw a wedding w/ pineapples and candles as their centerpieces. I thought it looked sooooo great. You could do a set up like these and then have your guests take the pineapples! Here are some pics

Oh I soo love that! Thank you for the ideas. I looked it up and to clarify pineapples are an old symbol for hospitality, family and thanks. PERFECT!!

We are giving welcome bags to all of our guests filled with goodies. For favors we are making donations to the Cancer society in memory of my fiance's father and my grandmother.

We are doing OOT bags as well. We will have these bags either put in the rooms or we will give them to everyone at dinner the first night. We purchased a tote bag per couple and are filing each one with sunscreen, bug spray, two shot glasses, a mini bottle of tequila (will purchase in Mx), candy, an itenary of the week, and brochures for the hotel and excursions. Most of these items were prchased through a local wedding shop (Nuptial Necessites- she has a website so you might be able to order if you are not local as well) . The shot glasses came from theknot.com.

 

For the bridal party each female is getting a starfish necklace earing combo and each male is getting a cigar/flask combo that goes in their pocket. The jewelry was ordered through overstocksilver.com.

 

At the wedding we will have fans at the ceremony and a starfish bottle topper per couple at dinner. The bottle topper was from theknot.com as well.

 

I have ordered everything a little at a time for the last year and a half so spead out it hasn't seemed to bad....my FI might not agree. :)

 

Hope this helps! ~Tiff~

hey there,

in one of the main forums there is an OOT bag thread and the brides have given some feedback from their guests about what they thought was useful in the bag and what was good, but not used. It's a great thread. There are some really good ideas too.

I'm doing OOT bags, but I really haven't decided on anything for the dinner (ie placecards). I dont want to haul to much stuff down to Mexico, I always pack heavy on trips as it is. I do like the idea of buying some things when I'm down there. I like the hot sauce idea!

Love the hot sauce idea. We are thinking of giving mini bottles of Mexican tequilla (a common idea I think).

As for place cards, we are actually going to let people figure out where they want to sit themselves. We hope to have between 40-60 people and figure I don't want that responsibility to seat people! hehe...we are not planning to do the formal dinner though so it maybe easier with this than a proper seated dinner.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
