Hey girls! Are any of you doing welcome bags for your guests? If so what are you putting in them? My friend went to a wedding in mexico and she has stuff like imodium, viramin c, candy bars, maps and water bottles....is putting imodium in your welcome bags a little odd? I feel thay way but maybe that's just me...

Kaitlyn,

I ordered some things for my welcome bags already because I needed to burn some FSA money before it expires in the new year. I got mini sunscreen bottles, chap sticks and mini first aid kits. The first aid kits are a little weird I guess, but I put way too much in FSA account this year so I figured what the heck... it's a good thing to keep in your suitcase anyway! I plan to add apsirin and tums or something like that.Vitamin C is a great idea and you can get a huge pack of Emergen-C at costco/sams. I think hangover cures are pretty common in welcome bags and I admit to having used them before after weddings! My welcome bags are starting to sound like a mini pharmacy...

 

I am also going to make little weekend programs with ideas for things to do and any scheduled events, and a little door hanger "Do not disturb... I partied all night at __&__'s wedding". Lastly, we are going to run through the market when we arrive and see what other little goodies we can find for the bags. Maybe some cheap souveniers or something.

 

 

 

 

What are yall doing for escort/place cards? I saw a few cute ideas online: mini drink umbrellas iwth tags tied to them, or maracas also with tags, or with a name in sharpie.

 

Anyone else going for the buffet? My WC said you actuallly get some of each item on the list for the buffet menus. My family loves to eat so I definitely want as much food as possible... It's $40 per person, only $10 more than the 3 course meal and you get way more food options. The risk is do you get a lot more food, or just a tiny bit of each choice? Did I mention we are a big food family? :)

Thank you so much for the welcome bag tips. The mini umbrella idea sounds SO cute!! I'm going to go with the plated menu only because my eeception hasbto ends sooo early. We will all probably go out after anyway.

hey girls!! I dont think there's anything wrong w/ giving immodium in the gift bags! Your guests might actually be grateful if their tummies don't like some of the food!! haha....my gift bags include advil, benadryl, pepto, chapsticks, first aid kits, playing cards, word searches, headphones, flip flops and snacks :) Also asked the resort if they can provide us w/ water bottles to add to the bags, im sure that will b extra as well smh

 

NCalvar I actually asked my WC Diana to price out some of the centerpieces I sent her that i would be interested in and the florist there quoted from 40 to 80 which I dont think is bad price, although what we want is really simple. Vases w/ candles floating and surrounding candles. Hope this helps!!

Catfish, I think your the only lucky one in the floral department....I have been getting outrageous quotes from them. Is it really cheaper to go outside the resort for flowers since they will charge a vendor fee?

For orders over 1,500 he will take 15% off to help with the outside vendor fee. We are using him for brides bouquet, bridesmaids bouquet, bouts, centerpieces, and ceremony decor to get to the $1500. He said if you just use him for bouquets and bouts he can drop them off with someone in the lobby and you don't have to pay the vendors fee, but he needs to set up centerpieces so you need to pay the fee if you order those.

Kaitlyn I think it's bc all i'm asking for is vases with candles in them lol I wont have any flowers in my centerpieces. If we were having it in the states think we could get each centerpiece done for $20 or less :-/ but we couldnt carry the vases in since we're carrying so much already 4 wedding itself. def try going 4 outside vendor like Emily suggested. Or even ask resort how much they'd charge 4 just the vases and see where you can obtain flowers outside...

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
