    Ok, so just when I thought I was finished...


    I wanted to share the name of the wholesaler we worked with to purchase the rectangular sinamay envelopes we used for the ceremony, the pink sinamay bags we used in some of the wedding week survival kits, the sinamay pouches we used for the kids to collect their pinata candy, the sinamay baskets that held the toiletries in the palapa washrooms and the turquoise collapsable paper trays we used at the reception (they're based in Washington state and there were no issues sending these to Canada). If I had it to do all over again, I would have created a wedding invitation to fit in the square sinamay envelopes as well!









    The sign we placed in a frame on the photo guest book table couldn't be read in the photo...sorry about that. Here's what we came up with for that...




    Also, I'm very sentimental and wanted to try to bring a few things back from the wedding that we might repurpose often in the coming years. I found this engraved silver charger (in the placemat section) at Pier 1 and took it to use for our wedding cake. It was thick and sturdy but super light. Unsure if it was food safe, I simply asked the WP to have the chef put the bottom tier on cardboard. I love that we have it to use again in some way.

        I love your D­a de los Muertos wedding cake topper.  My Fi has shares the same sentiments as yours and has actualy purchased a similar topper for our wedding day. Thanks for sharing, everything is so tasteful and perfectly executed.

          Wow! I knew your wedding would be amazing after seeing your OOT Bag post a while ago. I'm truly amazed! I'm having a hard time picking a favorite thing but I love the way you coordinated everything so well and I love the sinamay details - I'm so glad you posted the vendor because I was going to ask! Thanks for posting your talents to inspire us!

              All of our cards/tags/pamphlets, etc. were created using Vistaprint. I've pulled these out of my portfolio...







              This was the brochure we gave out the first night (names have been removed). I brought a handful of fine sharpie pens to dinner that night for people to write the room numbers on the corresponding lines.
