Hi everyone! This is my first new topic, and I'm hoping this community can help me out. I was planning to make standard OOT bags for my wedding in Mexico this summer, with the typical items. My mom has been insisting that she thinks it would be better to instead create a gift box with local favors from Mexico - sort of as a nod to the area, and because, she says "people will bring their own crap from home, give them stuff you know they won't bring." Fair point.
So, I'm wondering if any brides have done this before, or if anyone is planning to try. My inspiration comes from this wedding's beautiful welcome boxes -- incidentally, I also stole that wedding's centerpiece and gazebo decor.
I wish I knew how to insert photos in here, so it'd be easier to see. Anyway, I like this idea but how do you actually do it?? It seems insane to buy stuff online from home, pack it up, and bring it down to Mexico since it will have come from Mexico in the first place, but I'm nervous about arriving in Mexico empty-handed and relying on my ability to put something together down there.
