DIYs for June wedding at Le Reve - Playa del Carmen (with Pics!)

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone! My wedding is coming up FAST and my fiance and I have started some DIY projects for the big day. We are proud of them so I wanted to share with everyone for ideas and inspiration!  You will see our monogram a lot which will be everywhere at the wedding - including projected onto the dance floor :) :)


Dinner menus (this isn't the final version/wording but you get the idea)



Matches for our cigar bar - we met on match.com so we incorporated their logo.





We are using kraft paper everywhere in our wedding, so we decided to go with kraft paper welcome bags. We really wanted to give out cloth totes, but I think these turned out great and they were a much more economical option. We designed a custom rubber stamp and I hand stamped both sides of 50+ bags.



Since the stamp was an investment (around $50) we wanted to find another use for it. We found online really cheap but sturdy paper coasters and we hand stamped about 150 of these. I can't wait to use them for our welcome cocktail party!!



Here's a close up... I love the fact that every one will be a little different from variations in the ink. They're not perfect but I think the imperfection adds to the "rustic" feel of the wedding.



Cute paper straws! I have to give all the credit to my fiance for these, he did this whole project start to finish - design to execution - on his own (300 straws!)....



"Too much sun, too much fun" kit for our welcome bags



Hope you enjoy! Let me know if you have questions or are looking for sources - we got everything online for very reasonable prices :)

Thanks! We are going to set up the cigar bar away from our indoor reception space on the beach bar at Le Reve. We are just going to lay out the cigars we ordered on the bar along with all of the supplies - matches/lighters, cutter (not sure if that's the right word?) etc.  We aren't having a cigar roller - ours is pretty low key. We are also making a cute framed sign which details what kinds of cigars you can choose from - as soon as it's done I'll post a picture!

Here are some more pictures of recent DIY projects:


Simple place cards with meal choice:



Fish, Steak or Chicken? (These match the pictures on our RSVP cards)



Some framed signs we made.... for our guest book, cigar bar, and alcohol bar respectively....



Up close of one of the frames. It's hard to see in the picture but there is a transparent background design on the picture.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
