This is what I did too. It worked out to be the least expensive.

We paid for chairs for the ceremony and dinner (8 I think were included and we paid for the rest), but not chair covers or tablecloths. We had just white chair covers and white tablecloths.

The Costco and and the Walmart are about a 20 minute drive - Costco is essentially identical to the ones we have here - the Walmart was pretty good. Not sure if they had fresh flowers though - I didn't really look!

 

I think that the chairs they use with the covers are the banquet room chairs... but not sure to be honest. We had the Tiffany chairs for our reception (which we paid extra for!)

Did any of you tip your cermony officiant or any of the staff that worked your wedding? If so what % did you tip? I'm trying to finish off the budget and I don't know whats standard for a destination wedding when it comes to tipping. Especially when you do things like packages. EEK!

Oh...I sent a HUGE long list of questions to Daniella yesterday so once I get some answers I'll share. I asked for things like SPECIFIC vendor policies when it comes to DJs (hopefully we can get that one cleared up!) and a centerpiece brochure (Laurenandbill I'll share if I actually get it!)

    • Yes, this happens all the time. One thing to consider is maybe to have the wedding at an off-site location where all your guests can go. There are several in Puerto Vallarta and Cancun Mexico. Most hotels offer a free wedding, but if a majority of guests are not staying there you'll be paying for not only the day pass, but for the food and beverage for each outside guest. Thanks - Sadie  
    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
