      First off, everything I've seen is so gorgeous.  You had such a beautiful wedding!  Second - the Camera Scavenger hunt is GENIUS!!!!  I'm totally stealing that idea from you

            Everything is amazing!

             

            Can you send me the template for the postcards and the accompanying note, and the invite for the cruise?  Also, are those glowing balloons at your dance party? Where did you get those? They are fun!  And I love the masks :)

             

            Thanks!

                  We used drink umbrellas in our colors and hot glued our guests name/table number as a flag to it.  We then had them all placed in a small box filled with Sand, and our wedding party handed them out to guests as we got our pics finished up.  Idea from BDW.

                  Because of our pick and choose menu, we had to have a way of letting the wait staff know what each guest chose as their entr©e.   I designed a menu for the steak selection in green text and a menu with the chicken and salmon selection in orange.  The two kids having chicken finger and fries had pink text.  As a surprise for our guests, we had in our welcome booklet to keep an afternoon/evening open for a surprise, and then at the reception, had a catamaran boarding pass I designed inviting them to join us on an evening cruise with a stop for dinner on the beach.  I held them together with a ribbon belly belt.  Both pieces were printed on 110lb card stock.

                  on top of each place setting were maracas with the thank you luggage tag attached with hemp string. We alternated pink and orange at each setting. We purchased the authentic Mexican maracas from Amols, and I purchased a felt pen from Michaels and wrote “C+M” and our date on each one, and on the pink maracas, I wrote Mexico.  We added the saying to have guests shake their maraca for us to kiss on the back of the luggage tag.

                  For the two kids, I did a scavenger hunt with the disposable cameras to keep them occupied, one at the reception and I did one for the catamaran too. I designed the tags with wording help from BDW, and used an eyelet and ribbon to attach it to the camera. J

                  For the table numbers, I bought some card stock in a green design from Michaels, glittery brown numbers and then hit ikea for the white plastic frames which are perfect for traveling (the bottoms screw on and off).  I purchased photo corners and scanned our pics of us at the age of each table (ie. At table one is a pic of us at the age of one).  I am on one side, Chris is on the other
