    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.

    Thanks so much for the inspiration. I bought glassine bags and was able to figure out how to print on them! They came out great!!! Looking forward to seeing more of your projects! :)

              Hi Girls!

               

              So we leave TOMORROW!!! I can't believe it!  As I pack up our d©cor, I took some last minute photos of projects I forgot to share with all of you.

               

              As I mentioned before, we will be giving out flip flops at the reception...they will be displayed in a basket on a table with this sign.

              We are also having a s'mores bar with gourmet marshmallows that I ordered from Sweet Jumbles on Etsy.  I highly recommend her shop!  The marshmallows are ridiculously good and she was a pleasure to work with!  I shared the sign with the flavors in an earlier post, but here is a pic of the "s'more love" sign that will also be on the table.  The flavors are nutella pb, coconut, horchata (cinnamon & sugar) and Mexican chocolate.

               

              Here are some pictures of the welcome packet folders for the welcome bags.

               

              
 
 

              I used plain white folders, printed a LOVE logo on a clear full page label and applied it to the front.  I used this technique to print the welcome to Puerto Vallarta label for the inside pocket.  The following items are inside every folder.

              a short welcome message

              a palm tree pen (from Oriental Trading)

              a handmade bookmark (featured in an earlier post)

              personalized post it notes and Puerto Vallarta post cards (both were made on Vista Print)

              a small camera cutout with a message on the back reminding guests to share their pictures with us

              a welcome booklet with the wedding week activities

              a pv pub crawl book with all the bars and descriptions listed

              a facebook with pictures of all guests

              information about the resort including free golf tee times, a map of Dreams and a list of restaurants & activities

              a calendar called "hang with the bride and groom when they're not in their room" so guests know where to find us.

              a "do not disturb" door sign

                More pics of welcome packet contents... "hang with the bride and groom" calendar, a map of pv featuring Dreams and Las Caletas and a Spanish language guide.

                
 
 

                 

                As I mentioned in an earlier post, guests will light sparklers for our first dance.  These are sparkler cards I made to hold them.  The say, "Light the way when our song begins to play."

                 

                Because we are having a cigar bar, sparklers and wish lanterns, we thought we should get some personalized match boxes.  I found these on Etsy and thought they were so cool!  I asked the shop to use glitter in our colors and only include less morbid pictures...while I love Day of the Dead stuff, I didn't think it was appropriate for a wedding. (This picture is from the website, because ours are packed away.)

                 

                 

                At the ceremony entrance, we will have a table set-up with white wayfarer sunglasses and wooden fans in baskets... There will be a "Be Cool" sign in front of the basket of fans and a "Stay Cool" sign in front of the sunglasses.  Thought this was a nice touch for guests sitting in the sun during our ceremony.
