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. 

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks!

Hi jd0922 -

 

CONGRATS!  I'm a fellow NJ bride getting married at a Karisma resort!  I too would like to include local Mexican items in my OOT bags and as possible favors.  There is a former bride who lives in Playa del Carmen area that started a biz renting decor items and sourcing favors.  I will pm you the information. 

 

Alternatively, you could go to Playa or Cancun a few days ahead of your wedding and pick up a few items. Hope this helps!

    @girlinthecity97 I'm getting married in Playa in June and I am also looking for wedding favors, can you send me the info of the former bride who rents decor items please?

    Thank you!

    @jd0922 I think adding Local favors is a great idea! I'm mixing it up a bit. I'm going to add Koozies and Hand Sanitizer to my OOT bags and when I get to Playa I want to add Mexican Candy and some hot sauce I'm still thinking of what else to add.

    My favours are going to be handpainted maracas from www.maracasartanddesign.com

     

    It's a family-owned business in Puerto Vallarta, and they ship the maracas directly to your hotel.

     

    Including shipping, I paid just under $200 for 25 maracas.  I think it'll be a great favour that everyone will enjoy, and I think they'll be super fun to have at the reception!
