Here are some of the table signs that will be displayed during the ceremony...

 

We are calling our specialty cocktail, "Horchata Colada."  For anyone who has never had or heard of horchata; it is delicious!  I think the best way to describe it is "the milk left in the bowl after a huge bowl of cinnamon toast crunch." :D  It is a traditional Mexican drink made with rice milk and cinnamon.  We are adding Malibu coconut rum to make it extra tasty.

We are also having a s'mores bar at the reception.  I ordered some fun homemade marshmallows on Etsy: coconut, Mexican chocolate, pb nutella and horchata (cinnamon & sugar).

This sign will go on our wish lantern table.  We are planning on asking our guests to write a wish for us on the lantern before we release them.

Sparklers will be displayed on the same table as the lanterns.  I made sparkler cards that say "Light the Way, When Our Song Begins to Play."   This sign will inform guests when to use their sparklers.

This sign will be displayed on our escort card table.  We are using the sand dollar xmas ornaments (posted earlier) as escort cards.  This sign explains the significance of the ornaments.

Thanks you!!  You aren't far from us, Jersey girl. ;) Where in Mexico are you getting married?

 

I purchased the bags from Etsy seller, Ciera Design, but it was a while ago and it doesn't look like she sells them anymore.  They are square glassine vellum bags.  I searched Etsy and it looks like this seller, Laserbird, has the same thing available.  They were very easy to print on with our at-home printer.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! :)

 

Here is the link for the bags sold by Laserbird.

Hi ladies!

 

I just finished the bookmarks we are putting in our oot bags.  I used the Phillie Phanatic image again and wrote, "You were here."  Thought it was a cute play on words meaning, "this is where you were in your book" and also "you were in Mexico."

We are planning on giving guests a late night snack (Mexican wedding cookies) to take home after our welcome party.  I found these cookies on Amazon and I made the bags with our at-home printer.

Well brides, so much for attempting to post everything in order, LOL.  I have been taking pictures as I complete things, so I apologize if all of this bouncing back and forth confuses anyone.  

 

This is our "here comes the bride" sign that our ring bearer and flower girl will carry.  The back says, "just married".  I purchased it on Etsy.

This is a close-up picture of the hand-cut banderas flags that I mentioned in the beginning of this blog.  We are giving them to guests at the ceremony to wave around when we are pronounced husband and wife. :)

Ok, here are our ring bearer and flower girl gifts...

 

My niece is our flower girl.  She is 2 years old.  We are giving her a mermaid hooded beach towel embroidered with her name (ETSY), a flower headband for the ceremony (ETSY) and a flower girl book.

My nephew is our ring bearer.  He is 4 years old.  We are giving him a shark hooded towel, a personalized sand bucket with a shark (we bought this in red) and his name (he LOVES sharks!) and a bowtie to wear for the ceremony.  All were purchased from Etsy.

I have another question for you... I am also giving my guests tumblers. How do you plan on packing them?

Hi Lori,

 

I already have them packed--we bought 35 of them.  I stacked them in three and wrapped each stack in bubble wrap.  I was surprised at how many I could fit in one case.  Hope this helps!!

    • 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.
