My best friend is getting married in December and I am throwing her a Honeymoon Shower. She and her fiance are living together and don’t need any of the traditional wedding gifts, but I still want to do something special for her.
The happy couple will be taking a cruise to Progreso & Cozumel so I would love to do a cruise theme with maybe some Mexican-inspired decor pieces. For the invitations I’m thinking boarding passes. Even though the shower will be in November, I would love to get the guests to dress “cruise-ish” (bright colors, sunglasses, pretty flowers in their hair, etc.). The bride loves cupcakes so I want to have those versus a cake, but no design in mind yet. Gift ideas include water camers, cash, gas cards & CDs (for the drive to the port where she will board the boat), luggage, travel stuff, beach wear, and lingerie.
Thoughts?! I need ideas for invitation wording, decor, cupcake design, foods, other gifts, etc.

Lots of ideas here:
the invitation could be something like this with the boarding pass inside
On most cruises they take pics of each guest as they board the ship. You could make a backdrop and do the same thing. Take a pic of each guest with the bride.
decorations could be large Mexican paper flowers- this would also mae a great backdrop for the picture taking
cruises are famous for their buffets so I would certainly use that layout- have seafood, chips and salsa, ceviche, margaritas etc A make your own sundae bar for dessert?
cupcakes can be cruise themed in blue and white or multi colored to go with the paper flowers
Cruises also have lots of games for guests- trivia, bingo etc You could adapt these for bridal bingo and trvia about the couple.
