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:

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
