    The poem says:

    Instead of tapping on your glass,

    here’s a system with Mexican class:

    Stand and shake with all your might,

    to see the groom kiss his bride tonight!

     

    Hope that helps!

    I really like the poem! Good job!

    I'm looking to use white starfish for place cards as well but cannot figure out what size to buy. Which size did you order? 3-4" or 4-5"? Thanks! :)

      Next up, gift bags... My colors are a bright coral-ly pink, and ivory/silver. In order to give everything a consistent and stylized look, I went to town with one of those Martha Stewart punches featuring a starfish/sand dollar. Here are the cutouts on my gift bags/welcome letters. (You'll also notice the tiny bottle in front - in addition to items like aloe, sunscreen and a pocket Spanish dictionary, we put tiny messages in these bottles that explain that they are to bring back a little bit of paradise (sand) when they leave!) The tags on the gift bags say "Gracias y bienvenidos." bags.jpg

      I love the bottle/sand idea!

        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! 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

        Very helpful...thanks!

          Hi Lori,

          I used the 4-5" starfish, bought them from an etsy seller https://www.etsy.com...tetulipboutique they were 30 starfish for $30 (plus shipping costs).  Thought it was a great deal and they arrived safe and unbroken.

          I'm really pleased with the way they turned out :)

          good luck and let me know if you have any more questions!

                  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!

                  Awesome idea!
