There have been vases, but it can be hit or miss. The selection is not as big as most Walmarts in Canada or US. So as long as you are a bit flexible in what your final look should be it could work for you. We bought our vases at a party supply store in Cancun, you can find directions on  my planning thread.

Our coozies came in!!! Our wedding is happening during Day of the Dead celebration...so we decided to incorporate it a bit...really only in a few things! I tried to find the prettiest skull I could! and we LOVE pizza...so we are serving it as a "late night snack" at the reception! so you don't think I am nuts :-) so fun to have all the little pieces coming together!

Hi Ladies!

 

I am doing a 'rush' order on my invites because i'm slowly loosing control on my guest list (over eager parents). I'm trying to decipher the banquet menu, and I would like to give my guests the options of chicken, beef, or surf and turf - but the menu looks like I pick? Can I just get the numbers from the RSVP cards and submit to the hotel?

 

It looks like a lot of people on the post are just doing the lobster surf and turf. Are any brides out there giving their guests meal options?

Not sure exactly which menu you are looking at.....? But if you are looking at the Pick and Choose selections: you must pick the starters and dessert. The main: you are allowed to offer your guests the choice of two of the entrees (plus a vegetarian option)....so in this case perhaps chicken, surf/turf, vegetarian. You must have your totals back to the hotel at least 4 weeks prior to your wedding (although I added 3 guests with less than 2 weeks and they accomodated them and their meal choices).

 

Hope that helps!

That does help! I was looking at the privat event banquet kit provided to me by the WC. I was getting really turned around with the whole thing - the pick and choose and the pre-set menu, i spent so long looking through it all, and the FI decided that buffet was his pick! LOL. I'm torn - i like the idea of a structured sit down, but the freedom of choice of the buffet.

phsexxy you can look at the vases at dollar tree, that is the route we went. Good reviews online also and can ship to store for pick up for free

Hi! If you look back through the thread this question came up before. I believe you can bring your own sand but I don't think you can take it out of Mexico to bring home.

This is so creative! I love that you are serving pizza as a late night snack. That is just awesome.

We decided on the BBQ deluxe buffet. That way, people have more choices and I don't have to try and figure out what they will like. But, I don't know if I should have assigned seats and tables with the buffet. Suggestions and thoughts from anyone.
