My Mexico/beach wedding DIYs - post yours for inspiration!

Recommended Posts

One of my best friends is a pro at photoshop....so we created my own ceremony program covers.  

 

This is the front and back.....700

 

and this is the inside of the front cover and the inside of the back cover.....700

 

I still need to drop them off at staples to have the inside pages copied and attached....but then they are complete!  Good thing since we are 20 days away from the wedding!!

I made some table runners this weekend as well.  There were some really great ones on etsy that didn't cost too much...but my mom did some searching and we made three extra long runners and four small center pieces for cocktail tables for less than $40!!  The picture isn't that great....but you get the idea :)   700
Hi!!! I'm doing chevron table runners for my tables as well... would you pretty please be able to tell me where you got the fabric and how much of it did you buy?

Here is a link to where I got it and all of their chevron patterns.... http://warehousefabricsinc.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?  It is $7.47 a yard and I got 5 yards.  With shipping I paid $43.95.  We made 3 LONG runners for the reception and 4 small centerpieces for the cocktail party.  We backed them with old white sheets to make them thicker, more sturdy, and more finished.  This cost nothing!  :)  We used every bit of the fabric, we didn't have any leftover, but the runners should go the entire length of the tables.  Good luck!!

So... since I technically didn't create this, I can't take credit for it as a DIY (except I did print and fold it, so maybe it counts??), but it is too good not to share! Perfect for OOT bags if you're having you wedding in Mexico, and FREE! Love that, what a great Ida!! They're these great little pocket spanish language booklets. I found a free PDF download online (can't find the link now, but PM me if you can't download it in the attached and I would be happy to email it to you). I then printed it in color, two sided, folded along the lines, trimmed off one long edge with a paper cutter, and voila! [ATTACHMENT=12494]Spanish_ToGo.pdf (71k. pdf file)[/ATTACHMENT] 700 700
