      We do not have a wedding party, just a flowergirl and ring bearer…here is her attire:

      And she will wear these flowers in her hair, ordered from etsy seller PrettyBabyBowtique, these shipped fast!:

      And I went a bit crazy on getting stuff for her..she is a girly girl and is so proud of being the flowergirl…I got her a tshirt from customizedgirl that said “in charge of the petals” she will wear that on the plane. I forgot to get a picture of that shirt before I gave it to her.
      I have swimsuit cover-up for her and a flower tank top that I made:

      This is her special OOT bag, that she will be able to carry to Las Caletas on the morning of the wedding. The bag is from Click the image to open in full size.
      Here are some of the extras for her bag:

      Our ringbearer is 10 and I had a hard time getting him “cool” things…there was no way he would wear a “ring bearer” tshirt so I didn’t even bother. I did get him some cologne, shirt and adidas bag… then when we get there I hope to get him a boogie board to use in the ocean because he is really getting into surfing

      The kids will also get these goodies in their bags – includes magic cards, beach balls and other fun pool/ocean stuff!

      OOT Bags
      I bought these bags about a year ago at target and added my own tags…these were the biggest challenge to pack! I have a big box of them…

          Wow…I know almost everyone says this but I seriously can’t believe it is almost time for me to leave! This forum has been a complete life saver, LITERALLY every idea for my wedding has come from someone on this forum and I can’t thank you all enough. So please know that if I used your template and don’t mention your name I am sorry…but VERY thankful! Be warned this thread is long but I was able to get so many great ideas from everyone here that I thought it was only fair to share every detail of what I ended up with!

          Before I get into what you all really want to see I first want to thank Tammy for creating such an amazing place for all of us! So many people have helped me along the way I really wouldn’t know where to start in naming names to thank everyone for their ideas and inspiration! I do though want to give one big thanks to all of the other Las Caletas brides if it wasn’t for you all I would not even know that such a special place even existed!

          Ok ok, on with the goods!
          After reading all the posts about the boarding pass STD’s I decided to tackle my very first DIY project. Looking back on them now…I would have done a lot of things differently on them but overall I was really happy and all of our family and friends loved them!

                      Wow, you have really gone above and beyond! You have SO many things to personalize your day and your week...your guests are going to be blown away! I hope none of my guests see this so they don't know how lazy of a bride I am, hehe.

                      Great job on everything! I can't wait to hear about everything and see pics when you get back!
