We got married on 10/2/10, just getting around to getting these pictures postedâ€¦..so sorryâ€¦.I got so many awesome ideas from the gals on this forum, Iâ€™ve got to pay it forward. Lots of ramdom and organized stuffâ€¦..lolâ€¦.!! This is my planning thread!!!!
This was my inspiration for my colors and the florist did an amazing job reproducing this in Mexico
This is a picture of the pre-departure boxes I sent to all my guests 2 weeks before the tripâ€¦..They had The travel brochure (created on Vistaprint), Spanish for Dummies handbooks, puzzle books, palm tree pens, luggage tags, cards displaying the layout of the resort (vistaprint), Spread Love not Germs baggies (tissue and hand sani), peanuts, gum and mints! Everyone loved getting the packages and they psyched everyone up for the trip!!!
Next is Pictures of my OOT Bags!
They had Towels, cdâ€™s, Wedding Survival kits, Coozies (which everyone used because the resort served cans of Bud-light!) travel candels, disposable cameras, lanyards/key card holders, bags of candy (in organge paper bags w/ a label on in that said â€œhow sweet it isâ€ Kevin and I each picked our 2 favorites, sorry no pics), do not disturb signs! Feel like Iâ€™m forgetting something but it was 5 months agoâ€¦..oh a welcome letterâ€¦.Iâ€™ll add that stuff at the end!! I used yellow, pink and white straw bags and tied on XL postcards (vista print, again!) PSâ€¦..for the single guys I used drawstring nylon backpacks. No pics of the lanyardsâ€¦.got the basic idea from the forum and just personalized them!!!
These next pictures are just random d©cor at the reception etc:
This is set at home but this is the general idea on the platesâ€¦.maracas (group favorite) and menu cardsâ€¦Our table numbers where pictures of beachs w/ names of different areas of mexico ie: cancun, cabo, playa del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras etc, the seating cards (starfish) where all lined up in a big basket of sandâ€¦â€¦Chair sashes, flip flops, pashminas, ring bearerer pillow??.....lol â€¦â€¦
The above picture actual table at the wedding!!!! Hey didnâ€™t think I had oneâ€¦.great!!!
Well thatâ€™s about it for now â€¦..this wedding consumed so much of my life, hard to believe itâ€™s all over!!! If I can share one piece of adviceâ€¦â€¦..Enjoy every second, it is a memory faster than you can imagine!!!!!
