Cabo wedding favors

Recommended Posts

I would love to do wedding favors that are unique to Cabo? Any suggestions? I don't want to spend a fortune, but would love to have something out of the ordinary and from Cabo! Thanks!!

You may want to consider hitting up the marketplace for something uniquely Mexican - hand-painted masks, talavera (hand-painted pottery) pieces such as shot glasses, candy dishes, salsa servers, etc. or vintage lime squeezers, maracas (not all that original but definitely Mexican!), tiles-turned-coasters by placing cork squares on them, etc. You could also provide recipes for authentic Mexican salsas and sauces and provide your guests with a molcajete (google it). Lots of great ideas out there!

 

Also, your wedding date qualifies for our first Mexican-themed invitation giveaway (check it out at our blog link below) if you are really into setting the tone for a unique Mexican celebration (and haven't already purchased invites)!

 

Good luck! Let us know what you decide on!

tiles as coaster is super a cute idea! I am leaning towards doing something unique to cabo/mexico too. all ideas are appriciated! I am still debating if we need to do big welcome bags or not?

Hi, I'm a Riu Palace bride-to-be!  My wedding is in April 2011.

 

Coasters are great because people can easily bring them home with them, and I love the idea of buying something that is authentic right from Cabo.

 

For favors, we're planning on getting personalized shotglasses made in our wedding colours (purpley-blue and silver), with Cabo, the date, and a starfish on them.  We're doing a starfish theme (with diamond accents) so for seating placecards I'm ordering 4-5" finger starfish in the purpley-blue colour and tying the white nametags on with silver ribbon. 

 

I wanted to do welcome bags, but with the number of guests we're having, we can't afford to anymore, since we have to pick and choose what we go ahead with.  If you do welcome bags Murphie310, what are you thinking of putting in them?

Hi MrsKellytobe!

 

Sun screen, chapstick, deck of cards...very simple items.  Or we might just do a nice tote bag that they can use for the beach with nothing in it.  We also want to put colored fans on the chairs at the ceremony.  use those two items as the "gifts"

 

We havent figured out how to hand them out yet.  I do know some hotels will hold them in the back for you and pass them out when your guests check in.  I read on here that some couples met thier guests as they arrived at the hotel, got a list of arrival times from thier travel agent, thats a nice touch but a lot of work!  I was going to ask if they could be placed in the rooms prior to arrival since a lot of hotels block off a certain section of the hotel for your guests.  I really just have a lot of questions too!

 

We are planning on a large number of guests so we might not be able to afford it either.  We shall see.

 

I like the starfish theme...I am thinking dolphins.

One of the things I'm doing is paper fans that will be placed on the seats of my wedding guests in orange/fuchsia since it will be hot and I'm from Seattle and my guest aren't really used to that cheesy.gif as they say...People from Seattle don't tan, they rust!...

 

I'm also thinking of ordering customized ribbon w/ Rory and I's name on it to tie at the bottom. The WC is going to place them on the seats for the ceremony in alternating colors.
