This is lovely. You have done a great job creating a wedding that will fit into the environment rather that redefining it.

 

My daughter had a similar wedding last month, and two ideas (small) that I'd like to share:

 

1) Use Mexican house number tiles for your table numbers. This is actually a Martha Stewart idea, but it was perfect. We simply leaned the tiles against the floral arrangements. We actually found that it was less expensive to bring the tiles with us than to to have them delivered to the resort or have our event planner of florist supply them. We had free shipping inside the US from directfrommexico.com, and it was almost $100 in Mexico. Go figure...

 

2) Gracious Bridal and For Your Party have wooden beverage sticks that, when printed in espresso, looked like the letters had been "burned" into the wood. Small detail, but fun!

 

Have a great wedding, and let me know if I can share any other ideas.

 

Your wedding is going to be lovely!

Thanks Smidge! Actually, this isn't for my wedding, it was created as an inspiration for a new wedding invitation we have designed for our business! But I love the ideas you mentioned; in fact, we did something similar with the tiles last month at a wedding in PV!

Great idea for future brides!

Sounds like you were a great help with creative ideas at your daughter's wedding!

That's almost exactly what we did, only we downplayed the color in deference to out setting. Vanessa Jaimes arrangements were white and green flowers, "low and lush," and the Fairmont Mayakoba, where my duaghter's wedding was held had blue glassware as you are showing here. The table numbers were the blue and white on this link.

I recognize the tile you are showing here, and if I remember correctly, it has a relief(?). The tile we used was three dimensional, and it added texture as well as color.

 

Our gift bags were beach totes that we filled with snacks and beverages, and for the families with children, a bag for the kids that we filled with juice boxes, peanut butter and crackers. When you come off the beach, everyone is hungry and trip to the resort store is not only expensive, but another thing to do.

 

I love the flowers on your board!

Thanks for sharing! I love the bright red hanging chilis! I have some great pics related to "rustic" and hacienda-style Mexican weddings. Will post when I have a chance.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
