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 flowergirlâ€¦I got her a tshirt from customizedgirl that said â€œin charge of the petalsâ€ 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
Here are some of the extras for her bag:
Our ringbearer is 10 and I had a hard time getting him â€œcoolâ€ thingsâ€¦there was no way he would wear a â€œring bearerâ€ tshirt so I didnâ€™t even bother. I did get him some cologne, shirt and adidas bagâ€¦ 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 â€“ includes magic cards, beach balls and other fun pool/ocean stuff!
I bought these bags about a year ago at target and added my own tagsâ€¦these were the biggest challenge to pack! I have a big box of themâ€¦

Personalized candles (I randomly found these at a bath and body works outlet for $2 each then added my own flair!)
Aches & Pains packs â€“ includes Tylenol, Dramamine, immodium (in the cute montezumas antidote envelopes, pepto and band aids
Personalized chapsticks â€“ the labels say â€œit started with a kiss now it has come to this!â€ - sorry this is a bad picture but you get the idea!
Notepads that I added our monogram to (bought at the dollar store $1 for a pack of 3)
DIY Keycard/tip holders:
Playing cards (template from MarieSam!)
Personalized matchbooks â€“ some will go in the OOT bags and then some will be at the reception because we will have cigars there!

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!
Here is my dress, it is a Maggie Sottero Philipa. I had the neckline altered into a sweetheart and am really excited about the way it turned out. Here is the thread with pics of it when I ordered it
My racing checkered flag garter is from esty seller – GarterLady

DIY Tears of Joy packets, will be on each chair at the ceremony along with maracas for our guests to shake at our first kiss
Las Caletas color changing cups â€“ we will have these at the bar during the reception â€“ordered from VendoDirect and split and order with other LC brides!
Pashminas for all of the ladies â€“
Eat, Drink and be Married cocktail napkins â€“
Sign for Postcard guestbook table, we will get postcards when we get to PV for this:
Sign for tequila tasting table at receptionâ€¦this might have been a bad idea but it will be fun!
ONE MORE COMING....

I blinged out my cake topper myself…
Since we also have a dessert bar, I think there might be extra cake so I have these boxes for cake-to-go then the bags will be provided so guests can put their cake, pashmina, maracas…whatever in and take back on the boat to PV.
LAST ONE – I PROMISE! These are glow necklaces I ordered from Ebay…I just thought these would be fun to have at the reception and I LOVE glow necklaces!
that was long!
