I do have a couple of questions, I have been going back and forth if i want do travel mugs for everyone; just wondering for anyone who has done them was it worth?. My concern is do people actually use them? The hassle of transporting them is what worries me the most. But if its something that people really get use out of then i defiantly want to do them. Also, I noticed that a lot of people have been getting those paper lanterns and bringing them down for the poolside reception, where do you hang them from? We are doing supper and the restaurant with a 3hour poolside reception with DJ, and i really want the poolside reception to be decorated. In the pictures that I have seen there doesn't seem to be much decorations, has anyone done centerpiece for the tables? Any feed back would be awesome!
Congratulations on booking!!
Okay, travel mugs... TOTALLY worth it! Everyone in our group was very thankful for them and used them constantly. They were a HUGE pain to travel with (filled an entire suitcase) however I stuffed them with other stuff so it wasn't dead space (socks, OOT bag items, swim suits, etc). It helped a little.
I had centerpieces on the tables for my poolside. They were the decorations I bought for the ceremony. Since I paid extra for them, they just moved them to the reception. It worked out perfectly.

Is it a good size of a bag? would 3 bags be enough to cover the aisle, not fully, but good enough? and also do you know if there a flower shop close by?? In case it will not be enough rose petals, I thought to buy roses myself and just tear off the petals! Also is there a bar right on the beach by the hammock location?? Would you recomend to pay for the champagne toast after the ceremony?
Thank you so much!!! you all have been a great help!
I had three bags of rose petals on my aisle. It really wasn't enough if you ask me (I would have liked maybe three more bags), but you can see for yourself if you'd like to use them.
The bar is very close to the hammock location. It's the 24 hour snack shop. Your party will meet there and then be escorted to the ceremony site. You will hide in the bushes of the bar. In this picture below of me walking down the aisle the bar and snack bar is the roof line in the upper left corner. I hope that helps.
