Hi Everyone!

 

I've been following this thread for awhile now....admiring all of the amazing DIY projects everyone is doing.  I figured I would do my own invites for our Mexico wedding in October.  Wanted to share what my FI and I came up with ... Coronita message in a bottles.  All said and done, 42 bottles later and about $3 for shipping each box via USPS, we still ended up around the same cost as if we were to purchase invitations from a real vendor.  Such a fun project...now I need to start working on our welcome books and bags!!  I have somehow turned into a DIY Queen, as I'm sure many of us have. :)

Thanks!  And Yes, of course we HAD to make an excuse to drink them all.  We got them for $5.24 per 6 pack at the local Mexican mart.  Practically free for invitations being we drank them anyway. :)

what a fabulous idea!  I'm sure if we did something like this my FI would have wanted to be involved with making (and drinking) these invitations!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
