          I love them AND if you find out last minute you need extras you can pick them up at Michaels or any other craft store - of course they're cheaper online and in bulk :)

            She has done all of my engagement pics, boudiour pics coming up this weekend, and all photos needed at the resort. I decided I would get more picture with her coming then from the resort. She will be with us the whole time so it worked out for us better.
            Ohhh you're doing a BD Shoot!!! So exciting! I really want to do one but I need to get my butt in gear and get in better shape

            Have fun with it this weekend!

These have a little tag that says "Abrezos" (hugs) which I ordered from ForYourParty.com Wedding favors, custom wedding napkins, party favors, and more. Make your special occasion unique with personalized favors!. I believe they cost $90 for 150 tags (I got 50 of each)
              - Chocolates from Ah Cocoa - those will have a tag that says "Besos" (Kisses)
              - A Just in Case bag: Advil, tums, pepto, purell, shout wipes, bug repellant wipes...my fiance ordered all this stuff off of Amazon.com - it's amazing the stuff you can find on there
              - Personalized Koozie
              - Mexican Worry Dolls - we bought these in San Antonio at a mexican market - they're little dolls with a slip of paper that says "mexican children put these dolls under thier pillows at night and the dolls take all thier worries away" - although they're technically Guatamalean...
              - Welcome Letter with Agenda.

              I made two stickers - one says "Shake For a Kiss" and we're attaching those to adorable little hang tags I ordered from www.paperpresentation.com (in the color flame which is a metallicy orange, they have the same color at foryourparty.) and then I made 2x2 stickers that say "bienvenidos a mexico" and those will go on the outside of the gable box. I found a great website if you want to make stickers:

              Online Labels - Labels for laser and inkjet printers! Compatible with all popular software programs for printing labels! - when you order labels they give you an access code to Maestro or something - but it's an online based program where you can design your sticker and then simply print them off -no worrying about the margins etc. I highly reccommend it.

              I'm going to upload some pictures into photobucket and I'll post them.
              Do the tags really say ABREZOS? Was this a typo... because it should be ABRAZOS (with an A).
              *I'm not tying to be snotty, I swear!!!

                To piggyback on Cathy's comment, are you seriously putting the worry dolls in there? As a 100% proud GuatemalAN (not Guatemalean) myself, I can tell you that no Mexican child ever put these under their pillows at night, these are little dolls wearing indigenous Guatemalan costumes...not Mexican AT ALL. Sorry, just a pet peeve of mine, my poor little country isn't known for many things other than the good coffee, bananas, and chocolate, so I have to stick up for what we got. :)

                  ohh good catch - thank you - that was just a typo here! the labels are correct.

                    I apologize for all my typos!!

                    I don't mean to offend anyone - we just got the idea from a hotel we stay at here in Texas that leaves them in the room at turndown - I thought they were so cute so I looked them up online which is how I knew they were Guatamalan and not really Mexican (despite what the hotel had printed on the little sheet of paper).

                      GOOD! I just wanted to make sure... My FI is half Korean and I want to add some Hangul in the program and ceremony to honor his mom's culture but I don't know of anyone who can write in Korean!
