Where did you get your photo sand box? That's what I'm looking for but don't like what I've found so far!! Care to share the cost? I really like that! How much sand will it hold?


Sorry - your pictures are great!! Your daughter was just adorable with her tutu! And you were a gorgeous bride!!

It was from Hobby Lobby, it's normally $20 but got it for 40% off for about $20!  It's on sale right now for $14.99 with half off!  http://shop.hobbylob...d-frame-469221/

 

I'm not exactly sure how much sand it held - we had leftover sand after using the oil pourers, so it wasn't a ton!  The blue sand originally came in a 1.5lb container, and my bff (one of my bridesmaids) used it in her frame as well.  And it still had about half the oil pourer left when we were done.  I would say it probably holds about a pound of sand or so, so getting a pound of each color (or using beach sand like we did, which was a great idea with the kitchen sifter!) should be more than enough!

 

@Meandhim

 

Thank you :)  It was a great time, lots of fun all week!  I wish we had more time with everyone - even with just 30 guests (2 cancels last minute) we couldn't spend much time with all of them, with the different stays and the coordination pre-wedding.  It was a blast though!  So happy we went with destination over stateside!


30 guests, Bride & Groom & 2 kids - one FANTASTIC time!

@marinah84

Love the pictures. Looks like everything came together so nicely and you it seems you had such a great time. I know what you mean about spending time with guests. I can imagine that will be tough for us as well especially only being there a week. Great though that everyone including yourselves had such a great time. Destination weddings are certainly the way to go.

Those pictures look great! especially given that your brother is not a photographer! 

 

I'm already stressed out about trying to spend time with people. I'll be a wreck when the wedding comes around :(

My biggest issue was the fact we had small kids there - and they were OUR kids, lol, so it's not like I could blame others!  My sister and brother in law graciously took them back to the states with them, so we could have a short "honeymoon", but a lot of the guests left that day as well.  If they had been older and we could have put them into the kids area for a couple of hours a day, that would have helped a lot!

 

 

One big tip - BRING WALKIE TALKIES!!  They were a LIFESAVER when we were running around getting ready for the wedding, and when people were with our kids (since they still nap).  We brought 4, and honestly I wish we had 2x that amount (we had 32 adults) at least.  We just put them on the same channel and would ping each other when needed.  Very helpful when we weren't in our rooms!

that's what we do too, we have two walkie talkies and they worked great last time when we traveled with my family. We should probably get a few more :)

@marinah84 your pics are beautiful! Kudos to your brother :)

Your little girl's dress came out beautifully, love the colorful tulle. She looks like a fairy!

I hope you two had a great time on your mini honeymoon. At least you guys were alone for that ;)

Trash The Dress Photos!

 

I've been CRAZY busy lately, but wanted to stop by and say I got my photos from Sam Luna the photographer over the weekend!

 

I've made a public FB album of our cenote Trash The Dress session - it was AMAZING!  The shots he got were gorgeous - I would highly recommend him/the ttd session to anyone on the fence!  Review eventually, as I catch up.  Also have some items to post on the b/s/t board - I need my house back! 

 

Here's my album (hopefully the link works!):  https://www.facebook...741863.54300091
