mexico102 "late" planning thread

Recommended Posts







We got married on 10/2/10, just getting around to getting these pictures posted…..so sorry….I got so many awesome ideas from the gals on this forum, Iâ€ve got to pay it forward.  Lots of ramdom and organized stuff…..lol….!!  This is my planning thread!!!!

    pics for thread.jpg

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 trip…..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 “how sweet it is†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 ago…..oh a welcome letter….Iâ€ll add that stuff at the end!!   I used yellow, pink and white straw bags and tied on XL postcards (vista print, again!)  PS…..for the single guys I used drawstring nylon backpacks.  No pics of the lanyards….got the basic idea from the forum and just personalized them!!!

These next pictures are just random décor at the reception etc:

This is set at home but this is the general idea on the plates….maracas (group favorite) and menu cards…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 sand……Chair sashes, flip flops, pashminas, ring bearerer pillow??.....lol ……

The above picture actual table at the wedding!!!!  Hey didnâ€t think I had one….great!!!

Well thatâ€s about it for now …..this wedding consumed so much of my life, hard to believe itâ€s all over!!! If I can share one piece of advice……..Enjoy every second, it is a memory faster than you can imagine!!!!!

this is a bunch of stuff......welcome letter, key card holder, spanish phrase cards, readings (non-religious), trivia game etc







 These two docs are the letter and trivia game (of course you would change the names...lol) that was read and played in the van ride down to the resort.....6 vans....T-shirts given to the person who answered the least amount correct......T's made on Vistaprint, of course!!!!



Key card template....not sure how good!








Reading we used







 We used really tropical beachy stationary for the welcome letter













This card we taped together and laminated them.  They where on the key card holder/lanyard






OMG......but if 1 on you use one thing here then I've payed it forward.....good luck......happy planning!!!!!!

Everything looks Great!!  I'm sure you guests loved every part of it!  Do you mind sharing where you found your straw totes?  I love them!

I got them at the Christmas Tree Shoppe.....I think they are just on the east coast.  How many would you need???  I think I have about 7 or 8 left.
