    Hey Lisa! These are actually being provided by the resort with our theme, so Im not quite sure of the sizes of shells.

I loved having the talavera tiles & guests really liked that they each got a unique tile. And if you wanted, you could put votive holders on the tables in your colors.


        in case you're interested, this is where we bought the tiles for the place cards (they had really good customer service)



        and for the table #'s (also great service - it looked like they were out of the #1 online & when I called they searched around & found one to send me)




        We bought the little stands online, but I've seen them at Michael's for cheap.



        While we were in PV we bought a talavera vase to use in our sand ceremony which helped tie things together, but even without that I would've still used the tiles as place cards/table #'s.

        Hope that helps. Good luck deciding & let me know if you have questions!


        Thanks so much!

          Oh trust me they came with a heavy price tag as all things do at Beaches! Yeah I would just purchase some various shells in the smallest sizes you can, I know the sand dollars come in pretty small sizes.

            This couple used the follow pictures as table numbers. I will be using it mostly as decor but I thought I would post it anyways.


            My grandparents are very sick and can not come down to Mexico with us. By the time of the wedding they probably will not be around anymore.

              My escort cards are going to be wine glass charms (I have a pic of the prototype in the DIY forum) - idea found on the Knot.  I'll have a bulletin board at the entrance with them hanging - each one will have the guest's name on it and then the back will have the table number.  Since they are so small, I have to do numbers instead of a table "name" or else it won't fit.  But I'm debating on what to do at the actual tables - maybe have a number and a theme.  I've heard about doing the cities visited while traveling but we only have 4 tables and narrowing that down would be hard.  Then I thought about doing a beach theme - like one table is the a beach ball, another is a beach umbrella, another flip flips, etc and I'd just print it out on card stock.  The other option was to get some large sand dollars and just paint the table number on those.  I like the song idea too -it gets the guests involved.  Too many choices!
