    Matt and I wanted to have a unique wedding and unique wedding gifts for our family & friends attending.

    We made this gift bag, and I though I needed to share...

    I have these bags custom made by an aunt that is in the manufacter business, she made each bag different, 23 variations!!!... she painted some and others have a very cute mini pottery attached .. etc..

    I will show you here my top favorites...

    We found little cute details to put in the bag, for the ladies we included a "Pareo" - the wrap to use on top of bathing suit?...
    A little hand made coin purse
    A neckless, and a crystal tatoo to look sexy on the beach!...

    For the guys, we found this little tiny cups, made of clay and we thought it would look perfect with a mini tequila bottle.. , hope they laugh when they see it...

    Snacks... nothing fancy ...

    And I still need to add the calendar of events (that I just finished) and a map...

    I finished the bags on monday night, on tuesday morning we took a plane to atlanta, on wednesday I had my interview with the "Immigration" services department... everything went well... and today we flew back to Playa... just in time to see Adams girl (another BDWF member) outside the church!!!


    Did I mention that our wedding is next thursday??....1 week away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! . I will pick up my dress tomorrow... hope it's ready!!!!... and do my makeup and hair proof...

    Rings should arrive on tuesday... (they are being custom made in Guadalajara) insane design, havent seen them yet, yikes!!

    I am shooting a wedding on saturday, AND friends start to arrive on sunday...

    Monday & Tuesday we will be touring around, (I will post some good ideas for that too, later..) and wednesday will be day off for me, to get ready for the wedding next day..., except for dinner with everybody that night...

    Anyway... I needed to talk a little... I've been stressing out soo much..., now my big day is so close and I am almost... almost ready!!

    So here are a few pics of the bags

    If anyone likes these idea, and it's interested in the "hand made" mexican handcrafted bag, I can help you get them.

    And maybe even to filled them up with these ideas...

                  Could you have any more stuff going on?! Your a busy bee! I love the bags with the little pieces of pottery attached. Never seen anything like them. I would love to know details on how to get them and how much they are for my Welcome Bags. The crystal tattoos are a very cute idea too. You guys did a great job! Thanks and I hope you have a beautiful wedding day!
