    Sorry I was so excited about doing this I had to go into detail lol :)
    That sounds adorable!!! What a great idea! I've always wanted to drink out of a coconut since "Guys and Dolls" hahaha!

The cost for the centerpieces ($60) is way too much in my opinion. We found centerpieces for only $30/table. They are giant martini glasses that you fill with this clear filler. There is a light at the bottom of the glass (color of our wedding) and a martini pick that is the other color we are using for our wedding. We are having a lady in Mexico also do custom painted maracas...that is our biggest expense for the tables. I love the idea and the saying though "If you want us to kiss, then please shake this".
        The WC said that we get a dance floor for free, so I will definitely use that! Then she said that we get lights under each table to make it glow. I thought our centerpieces would fit right in. If you want a really cheap site to go to, check out Save on Crafts, Wedding Supplies, Flowers, Tulle, Lights, Decorations & Discount Craft Supplies Save-on-crafts.

        Love that site!
        Tutti... thank you for all the information. One question for you... so, is your plan to place two napkins (both the colors you ordered) into the wine glasses?? I'm trying to decide if I want to do this, but I have no idea which color to go with. My main colors are blue and green - I am also having maracas for each person in my colors as well.... it is so hard to imagine all this without seeing exactly how it will look. But, I do think adding the colored napkins would really add some color to the tables.... By the way, what are your colors?

        Thanks!

          tutti1299 -

          your ideas are awesome! love love them all! im totally getting the table runner, quick question about the napkins. The link you sent us, so is this company a rental? are you going to rent their napkins, use them in mexico, and just make sure someone is there to collect them all so you can ship back to this company?

          Thanks!

            PAPER WORK: for civil legal ceremonies your wedding coordinator would give you paper work to fill out which is basically information for you and your fiance and witnesses (relatives can be witnesses and they need to be over 1. You have to notarize your long version of your birth certificates (with a notary) and get them translated by a Mexican consulate plus photocopies of the 1st 2 pages of your 6 passports (you 2 plus the 4 witnesses) and of the tourist cards (that you get entering Mexico.

            Hope his helps.
            Whoa! That is insane. Is this for the states? I am from Canada and my wedding planner here in Canada never said anything about this stuff.

              so, Kimberly replied back with the new forms with our correct info on it, the deposit is going out Tuesday. Officially excited! Anyone know of a baker, for wedding cakes in Playa? I had found one posting on here about one with rave reviews, but can no longer find the posting.
              He asked, I said YES!!! 1 <3 21 <3 04 - 5 <3 13 <3 08

                Wow, lot's of movement in this thread since I've last been on. Great to see so many new Royal brides!

                FYI, for the cocktail and reception, it's open bar BUT the reception's open bar is only for three hours. If you want a longer reception (ours was 5 hours) you have to pay extra to have the bar stay open.

                  Our colours were blue and green as well, along with some yellow. I loved the combination.

                      We are thinking of doing the same for a welcome meet and greet. Any ideas of which bar you are going with?? Lobby bar, Martini bar or Tequila bar?? Too many choices.
