      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!

                    all great ideas- I plan on doing OOT bags with beach towels, bug spray, suncreen, maybe margarita glasses- not totally decided yet.

                      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.
