Hi ladies! My Tulum wedding is only 3 weeks away! I'm so ready to be on the beach like...now.
@sandall7, we are using maracas as place settings. I'm tying a little hangtag to each maraca and writing each guest's name on the hangtag. We ordered the maracas online from Amol's...I actually found them through old posts on these forums, and they were fantastic. They were the cheapest non-plastic maracas I could find and their customer service was amazing. They have plain (colored) ones too if you're planning to paint a design on them.
I was originally planning to bring down mason jars...but with 90 maracas already filling up one entire suitcase, I decided against it. I was also nervous that they would break in transit! KatyHK, who has posted on this forum about her own Tulum wedding, lives in Playa and has a lots of mason jars and other assorted glass containers that she rents out. We are going to rent some items from her to cut down on the things we have to bring down.
I probably would have done WAY more DIY if I didn't have to think about how to get stuff down to Mexico...I can't decide if that's a blessing or a curse!
@HoyaBeth, I'm a little jealous that you are bringing down your own linens! I gave up weeks ago on trying to figure out how long the various tables are...I'll just have to be content with plain white tablecloths.
@Ella2015, Angelina is our coordinator. If you haven't been able to get in touch with her yet, send me a PM and I can send you her email address.
Has anyone looked into getting one of those cute wooden welcome signs that you stick in the sand? There are a couple pictures on here http://www.destinati...2&title=Details#. The quotes we've gotten are a little ridiculous considering what it is...something else I would've DIYed if we had room!!
