A Frugal Bride's Riviera Maya DIY Wedding

Recommended Posts

 Nope, no adhesive or glue but you could, it certainly wouldn't hurt.  It was very windy the day of my wedding and I noticed afterwards that WC's did make an extra tie around the starfish with ribbon I had packed.

Ok, so its been awhile but I now have almost all my pics from the big day and thought I should post them so you can see how everything came together.

The ceremony set up, I took everything with me except the real flowers and white fabric.  Shells were purchased from Winners & Ebay, Fans from Oriental Trading, white capiz chandelier off Kijiji and chair sashes from ebay.  The WC did exactly what I wanted with everything.

Do you remember what seller or what you typed to find it? I need that dress?
