We used somberos from the hacienda in our wedding photos. They were like $10 a piece I think... but they gave us 6 of them to use for the evening. We returned them and gave them a $2 tip. They were happy.

    oh that's great to know...i didn't even think of that as an option to 'borrow' them. i'll keep that in mind.

          Did you bring your bows for your guests chairs at the wedding or are they provided by the Bahia?

            Have you looked into asking your airline if you can store the dress in the employee closet(Not sure what the exact term is) that's what I'm going to try. My dress isn't extremely huge so I was going to put my daughters dress in the bag with it.

            I'm bringing chair sashes down... but I was wondering if they supply the white chair covers? I've seen pics of chairs with sashes but NO covers as well as chairs with sashes over the covers. If they provide the white covers is there a fee? Do they put the sashes on for you? Mine just arrived in a box and are wrinkled... will I need to steam them or do you think they'll be ok?

            Thanks!

              Congrats to all those who recently got married.

              I had my dress steamed and they did a great job. We flew Cont. and they put my dress in the employee closet without any problems.

              We used white chair covers and they were provided by the resort.

              We bought maracas as gifts for our guests I think they were about a $1 each we did negotiate the prices though. Our guests loved them.

              When I flew to Mexico from Chicago, they didn't have an employee closet. So my dress went above the seats. Worked just fine.

              The white chair covers were included and free.

              Love you avitar picture Jen!
