@NJBride2014 - Yes, if you don't mind it, I'd love the template! We are doing maracas too. My email is lilyluu 83 @ gmail . com (no spaces). Thank you!

 

AH I am jealous about the plated menu! We have to pay an extra $55 a person or something so we're just keeping it as a buffet, but I'd much rather have a plated meal

Awesome, love everything!

 

Never thought to buy white maracas and give them a coat in my color paint!   I got an assortment of colors but love them!

 

I had to laugh at one of your pics where you can see the inside of your house and all your wedding stuff taking over -- that's so my house too!!

 

Enjoy, one month left.

I can just imagine!  I have gotten to the point I have bought most of my stuff, but haven't started to make it, so when that time comes it will all be sprawled out.   I have my 50 maracas on a table in the basement (airing them out, they smell lol), not sure how I could house them upstairs!

Wedding Weekend Events
Thursday - Welcome Party with signature drink, appetizers and a buffet dinner.  After dinner our hotel puts on a fireshow so we will stay to watch that.  Just going with the complimentary tables and linens for this event. I also plan to have a table set up to hand out my welcome bags to all of our guests.  My fiance wants to greet everyone when they arrive and hand out the bags then but I feel like its going to be stressful then.  With 30 something people arriving at the same time and checking in I don't want to have to find everyone to hand them their bags.  
After the welcome party we plan on going on a "cuncrawl" this is optional and whoever wants to go can meet us at the lobby and we can take a taxi downtown and go bar hopping.  If you are looking into an organized outing look into "cuncrawl" they have good reviews. 
 
Friday - Rehearsal Dinner again we are going with the complimentary linens and furniture but will spruce up the atmosphere with some decor.  Its going to be more  of a spanish/mexican themed dinner/party.  The menu is a buffet of latin/mexican cuisine. 
 
Flowers for the dinner

Then we are getting these papel picado banners made to put in the flower centerpieces.  They have our names and wedding date on them.  I found a seller on etsy who will be making them. https://www.etsy.com...ction/216784678
centerpiece banderitas

 

I also will have this banner hanging across over the tables. I bought the banner at amols.com.

Saturday - Wedding Day
Ceremony will be at 4:00 pm to 4:30 pm at the gazebo but with white complimentary tiffany chairs and the lace cones for the flower petals and coral and white petals lining the aisle.  We wont' have much decor here as the location and background view is enough I think.

Cocktail hour will start at 5:00 pm we left a 1/2 hour gap between the ceremony and cocktail hour so guests can freshen up and we have time to take some photos and still make it to part of the cocktail hour. 
 
The cocktail hour will be on the terrace with signature drinks and appetizers.  I'll also reuse the centerpieces from the rehearsal dinner and have them on the cocktail tables. 
20140811 193331
Gold straws for our signature drink.  Not sure what drinks we will have but I'm leaning towards a mojito maybe a strawberry or raspberry I want a pink/coral drink lol.  My fiance will probably do some type of martini.

These are our personalized napkins that I bought off of theknot.com, these will be used at cocktail hour.
 

Reception will be on the hotel rooftop terrace. 

Flowers for the tables, the flowers will be more coral and creams/white flowers.

Table inspiration.  I bought my sequin runners from a seller on etsy.  The look of the reception will be romantic and elegant with coral, hints of turquoise and lots of gold accents.

Groom's cake for my fiance, its a surprise and I can't wait for him to see it.  A lot of his friends who work with him in the jail are going to be at the wedding so I really think they will appreciate the cake. lol

Sandy, everything is looking really awesome! I can't wait to see it all together. Your ceremony location is stunning - and did I read complimentary white tiffany chairs?? Amazing

 

I LOVE the idea of the dog cut out haha - I think that'll be adorable.  You have so many goodies and nice surprises for the guests - I think I would LOVE to be a guest at your wedding :)

 

Oh and I did a Cuncrawl 2 years ago for a Bach. party. It was super fun! And I have to say it, we had THE hottest guide haha... my single gfs loved him.  We are definitely planning on doing another one this time around too

Yes, they actually give us white tiffany chairs for the ceremony but only 25 are complimentary and you have to pay if you go over.  We will need 32 so I'll pay for 7 extra so its not too bad. I can't believe how fast everything is coming and I have such a busy 3 weeks before we leave for Cancun.  My 30th birthday is tomorrow, my last dress fitting is saturday and then I'm having a big 30th birthday BBQ.  Next week I have my work bridal shower, church ceremony on friday and then a week to get everything together and packed before we leave.  It's getting down to crunch time and I must admit I'm a little stressed. lol  :blink:

 

I'm pretty excited for the cuncrawl I've never done it and only have been to Senor Frogs in Cancun so it should be fun to try out a couple bars/clubs with all my friends and family. I'm so ready for a vacation can't wait to be away from work for 2 weeks.  :P
