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

Recommended Posts

Next up, centerpieces (and apologies for the crappily-lit, poor background cell phone photography). That's why I am so glad I have the professionals taking care of the final shots at the wedding. I may only be an intermediate crafter, but my pictures don't do any of this stuff justice!

 

I am skipping a lot of flowers at my ceremony (it'll be dark for most of my January evening beach reception anyway), and am doing beachy lanterns as the centerpieces. These will be surrounded by all white shells, and menus, placecards, and maracas will add pops of color. I bought the lanterns at Ikea for $7 each (getting them to MX will be the biggest challenge). I also bought the white pillar candles at Ikea for $3.50 each, then wrapped them in a ribbon and raffia, and attached a white finger starfish. Should add some nice light to the tables under the stars (and will save me gobs of cash over flowers)!

I also made these fun senor and senorita signs for pictures and chairs (only missing is the accent mark - they don't make those in cutouts in America, it appears - not sure what I am going to do about that).

I've seen those cute "Bride" Victoria's Secret robes, and other similar gear for the getting ready photos. I thought about ordering the robe, but for $60 and something I'd only wear once, decided to DIY-it. I bought this satin robe at Walmart.com (they had white too, but I liked the "something blue), for $16. For another $15, I got some iron on rhinestone letters from Etsy. Instead of "bride," I did "Mrs. Sprague." Figured that was cute, and I could wear it on my honeymoon and beyond that way!

i love the lanterns!!! i wanted to do something like that but no idea how to travel with em.
It I'll be a bit of a pain, but it is literally saving me hundreds on centerpieces and I love he look. I can fit about 4-6 in a large carry on, so I think me and my FI can get most, and I will probably enlist a couple bridesmaids to take 1-2. I'll see if I'm ambitious enough I bring them back home :)

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
