Recommended Posts

The place cards are too cute! This thread gave me so many ideas. I think I am going to steal your idea of having a stamp made to use for our bags.

I know this post is old, but I just found some other pics of my DIY projects so I figured I would add them. 

 

These are our koozies that we gave to guests at the welcome cocktail reception. These were a HUGE hit with our guests and most people kept them around and used them for the rest of the wedding weekend. We ordered extra and just kept them out on the pool bar all weekend. We obviously didn't manufacture the koozies but we did the custom design to be printed on them. (The other side not pictured had our monogram.)

Here is a closeup of our seating chart that I designed and printed, and then a picture of it set up at our reception. We brought the frame with us to Mexico and it kinda broke in our suitcase, but you could barely tell in the setup. My husband did some quick fixes with duct tape!

Thanks!! 

We bought the cards banner on etsy from a seller named LazyCaterpillar. She is really awesome and her work equally as great! We also bought a larger "Mr. & Mrs." banner for our sweetheart table, and we bought a "Merry Christmas" banner for the holidays from her as well. Here is a link to the cards banner on Etsy and a picture of the sweetheart banner: https://www.etsy.com/transaction/78571323

Hi Dazeydawl, We bought the actual match boxes at the hardware store, then we DIY'd the covers at home. We printed them on 8.5 x 11" kraft paper, cut them out, then used double sided tape to stick it on.

May I ask how you got your matchboxes to Mexico?  I have read that TSA Regulations only allows a person to carry on one book of matches and you cannot check any in with your packed luggage.  (I sent an email to TSA to inquire).

 

Flammable Liquids or Solids

Guidelines for carrying flammable liquids are as follows:

  • A fuel lighter is permitted in your pocket or in carry-on baggage only
  • Up to two lighters are allowed in your checked baggage if they are properly enclosed in a U.S. Department of Transportation approved case
  • Lighters without fuel are allowed as checked or carry-on baggage
  • Lighter refills, fuels (such as gasoline or Sterno cans), paints, stains, lubricants, and "strike-anywhere" matches are not allowed
  • One regular matchbook is permitted in your pocket as long as it isnâ€t the "strike anywhere" matches
  • Torch or blue flame lighters are strictly prohibited.

We purchased personalized matchboxes from the knot.com and do not know what to do now.  I tried to FedEx, but they got held up in customs.  Now I have to have them returned to me....any light you could shed would be great!  Thanks!

Hi elissae, 

 

We packed the matchbooks in our checked luggage and didn't have any troubles (they were the strike anywhere kind, too!).We thought they were prohibited but just hoped for the best - worst case scenario they would take them from us. All in all they only cost us like $10 so I wasn't worried. Maybe because we did the custom covers and they didn't look like matchbooks and they didn't notice them? 

 

We checked 9 bags total to bring with us. We got caught up in customs for a long time while they searched everything, but they were mostly worried about the value of the items and that we paid the appropriate amount of tax for everything. The only thing that they were concerned about was the marshmallows we brought for our s'mores bar. They had no idea what they were and thought they were something illicit. LOL! Here's my story about getting through customs in Mexico (page 13): http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/41422/customs-in-mexico-an-effort-to-gather-the-info-in-one-thread/120

 

All of the pretty little DIYs in this thread got packed up here - if I had to do it over again I would NOT have brought the trunk-like suitcases :)
