    Thought some of you may like to see this as you are planning for your Mexican destination wedding! We created this design board as inspiration for one of our new Mexican-themed wedding invitation designs!

          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.

              3-D Multi Color Talavera House Number Tiles - Free Shipping

              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.
