    You def need boas!  Anything Mexican themed like sombreros..... Halloween is coming up for I am sure you can find some fun and cheap things!

I also want to have a beach umbrella set up some how and a table with props. The props I'm thinking straw hats, snorkel gear, beach towels and bags, big sunglasses, etc. if you have any other ideas I would love them!
    I want to get an instant photo camera like fuji or polaroid and buy a lot of film. We are going to have one of my finances former students (he's a high school teacher) man the booth and take two photos of the groups so they can have one too, like an extra favor. Our copy would go into our guest book and they could sign their best wishes next to it! Im also DIYing the book too! What do you think? Anything you would change or add?

        Thank you so much for your input and I'm going to see what I can work out for props with my space! I like the tan sheet for sand and beach chairs idea, it's going to be casual attire so guests might be up for sitting! Haha thanks again!

        Just saw that they have a ton of DYI photo booth stuff on the Oriental Trade company website. I got their catalog and they had a TON of stuff!

              So a little off topic from Photo Booths...but are any of your girls doing a signature cocktail for your coctail hour or reception?? I think we want to and that it would be a nice touch but I just don't to spend a ton of money buying the booze and trying to make it ourselves or worse spend all that money at a bar. If you are let me know what kind of coctail/drink you are doing and what you are naming it? Thanks ladies.

                We are planning to have a signature drink at our AHR. It's going to be a margarita type drink.....we are still getting the recipe down. And having fun in the process haha!! So far it's a margarita with cactus cooler! We are going to call it "The Carlson Cooler" ......Carlson being my new last name! We thought a margarita would be cool to add the Mexican flare. The only other drinks that we plan to have at the party is beer, wine, sodas, and water. Our thought of doing the signature drink would eliminate having to do open bar. Hope this helps with more ideas!

                  Ooooh sounds tasty!! Margs are a good idea since we'll be in Mexico as well. One of our colors is blue so maybe we could just add blue curacao. We tried making a few different drinks tonight and they were good but they weren't WOW! So we'll keep trying. Oh shooooot more drink tastin for us

                    There's no shuch thing as "off topic" in the May 2013 Thread, that's what make us so great!

                     

                    I will actaully have two signature cocktails to represent both of my colors, chartreuse and sangria. The first will be a pomegranate mojito and I want to think of a name for this, The second one I found online and purchased all the ingredients to test it out...love it! It's called "Lucky in Love" and uses honeydew melon, mint, lime juice, cointreau, vanilla vodka and champagne. I want to experiment a bit with the ingredients because I don't really want two mint drinks.
