    They provide the white chair covering apparently. We're not planning anything special for decorations at this point. We may bring fabric in our colour to put around the chairs just for a contrasting colour against the white. We're going there for NYE for a site visit/vacation so we'll know alot more after we get there and see what they do to decorate on their own. From what I understand from reading alot of the reviews, they'll put up anything that you ask them to pretty much.

      The chairs and the white on the wood is included. I brought down blue fabric to have hung by the structure and they had no problem AT ALL doing it for me, so I think pom pons would be fine. However, you might want to think about weighing them down? Perhaps you could use something like fish wire weights Small and not noticable, but will keep them from blowing in the wind?
      And for the record, I think that would look beautiful!

        Erica, the pom poms sound great. I don't know if you saw or not, but Martha Stewarts website has some there. We made a bunch and have been toying with making the napkin ring size ones for the place settings at the dinner. Going to talk to the WC about it more in Jan when she is back.

          I'm starting to wonder about the marriage certificate as well....although Karla (our planner) said it will take up to 3 months to receive in the mail...it's almost been 3 months for us and I haven't seen anything yet. Did you other married ladies recieve it in the time period they told you??

          Also as far as the resort photographer (we had Jose, he may be the same for the whole resort, im not too sure). He was awesome, we originally thought that we would get the package for $540 too, but he told us there is no way we'll be able to pick only 36 photos. And he was right!! He took 191 pictures and we ended up wanting them all...we paid $1200usd for a cd with all of the photos, a slide show cd (with our wedding music added to it) and 20 printed pictures. I wouldn't have changed anything about the photographer or the amount we payed for the pics...we still get compliments non stop on how gorgeous they turned out...I couldnt have been happier! Yay!

            Ya I was wondering if the pom poms would be too light as well. I will look for something to weigh them down thanks for the suggestion :)

              I was told the same time frame. I haven't received anything yet but I haven't been married for 3 months yet.

              I think I read that someone asked to bring hers home with her so that she could have it done here. In heinsight I wish I had done the same. Turns out she didn't even need to have it translated or appostiled. I guess the DMV is getting used to seeing spanish marriage certificates.

                Check out post #2261.

                It was Emme that decided to bring hers home with her. I know that this doesn't help us brides that are waiting ever so patiently but brides that are getting wed should perhaps put some thought into doing this instead.

                  Do you have any pictures posted somewhere that I could see? I'm still undecided about using the resort photographer because I have yet to see much of their work. Thanks in advance for any help!!!

                    I had forgotten about that post! Thanks for finding it Keira.....I think I am just going to bring mine home with me. I know others who have done that and it worked out fine....even if we have to translate it down the line at least it will be here with us.

                    For those of you waiting (patiently ) I hope yours come soon!
