Local Wedding Favors In Riviera Maya/cancun

Recommended Posts

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!

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
