A Frugal Bride's Riviera Maya DIY Wedding

Recommended Posts


If I can do it anyone can b/c trust me I'm neither crafty or creative.

All of our guests are flying out on different days, so this would be difficult for our group, but I'm sure your guests will love it!

 



 The paper came from papercircle.ca

I was worried about that too, I thought I just end up wasting a lot of money and not be able to achieve the results I wanted.  I tried as much as possible to purchase things that could be used in various ways.  For example since I couldn't find any clipart that I loved I purchased 12 credits for $7 and then purchased  4 images at 3 credits each, making each image $1.71 I used these same images throughout to get my money's worth.  I did a quick calculation of my invites and luggage tags for you:

 

Invites:

Ticket Jacket $0.38 per jacket

Boarding Pass $0.00, I used printer paper that I already had

Image $1.71

Palm Tree Brad $0.10 each

 

35 Invites = $18.51 or $0.53 each, no postage was required as we had a party before Christmas and handed them out then

 

Luggage Tags

Plastic Sleeve $0.08 per sleeve

Luggage Loop $0.06 per loop

Paper - used printer paper that I already had

Cost per luggage tage $0.14

 

Table Numbers

Vase =  $2.00 each

Vellum Paper = $.52 sheet

Image = $1.71, used same image from invite

 

6 Table Numbers = $16.83, or $2.80 a piece

Found another a picture to add to the collection.  I wanted to do cake boxes since we are having a dessert after dinner and thought people may want to take a piece back to their room to snack on.  The only ones I could find locally were just a plain ugly white so I broke out the paint I had left over from painting shells, picture frames, etc and here is the end product:
