    But I am for some reason obssessed with centerpieces. THinking should I do them myself ahead of time or use theirs...if I DIY then should I ship...would that cost outweigh doing it myself...

    Also...what does Siggy mean?? hahahha I have no clue.
    No shipping at all, it's VERY iffy and we aren't allowed to ship directly to the resort. There's a few threads on here and a few nightmare stories I've read where a girl shipped all her OOT (out of town) bag stuff for her guests as their favors ahead of time and found out one week before her wedding customs seized her items. You must go down there with a hired customs official to retrieve it within a week, she found out too late they had burned her boxes due to non retrieval. I bought some extra luggage and am hauling it all down with me and giving some stuff to bridesmaids to bring as well.

    I really had a tough time deciding what to do since I got quoted $500 per table for my centerpieces. 3 vases each with an orchid stem and candle on top. Soooo after a lot of deliberating, I decided to get real touch stems for my centerpieces and rent just the vases from them and bring my own candles.

    Siggy means signature, as in your signature picture, the one at the bottom of every post.

      This is true, I'm combing through all my items and making sure I remove any stickers or tags that said made in China.

      Also, bring all your receipts and have them ready for customs in Mexico. I also read that a girl put a obvious sign with her stuff that read "NOT FOR RESALE" and they pretty much saw it and left her stuff alone.

      I know this all sounds scary and daunting but I'm confident things will be totally fine for any of us bringing stuff. I heard one girl brough 12 extra suitcases. You just explain you're getting married, they won't care.

        Hi Girls-I'm Erin and I'm getting married at Azul Sensatori May 14th 2010. I've been reading some of the posts on here and it's been very helpful. I do have a question about what everyone is doing with decorating the gazebo. It's pretty expensive to buy those colored sheets. Is anyone bringing that from home? Also-bridesmaid boquets. I have seen that some people make silk boquets to match the 'real' brides boquet and bring those. Any thoughts?
        -Erin
        One more thing......where did you girls get your TTD dress? I want to do a shoot and don't want to actually use my dress. Someone said earlier they got it from some out of country site? Just curious...I don't want to spend more than $100 on it. -rin
        I sold my wedding dress to a fellow BDW'er for her to use as a TTD. Take a look in the FS section, you may have some luck!

        The wood runners were included in the old packages.... I had to actually PAY to NOT use it and have a white sheet runner instead
        I was also told that legal ceremonies were done in Spanish and there's a translator who translates the ceremony. I don't know if that's true but that didn't sound appealing to me and finally I don't want to wait months to have my marriage license/certificate translated from Spanish to English in order for it to be legal.
        Yup, that's true.... its in Spanish and they translate it. It was something I actually never thought about until "THE TIME".... I was standing up there and the look on my face is priceless because I'm thinking "WTF is this guy saying?". Made for a pretty humerous wedding video lol. I was looking all over the place.... the sky, the ground, my flowers.....

            Meghan,
            If you are doing the legal don't be scared of the needles. The nurse who takes the blood was awesome and she did a better job than anyone here in the US has done for me. I hate needles but she was really great about making you feel relaxed. They do have a translator for the ceremony so don't stress about that. Make sure to tell them you want a Translated copy of your marriage ceritifcate. Tiffany never even mentioned it to me and I am now working with Fabio to get it.

It also worked out good for us b/c we would have to get it blessed when we came back plus my & FI's mom are happy that it is in the church first. I figure I can make them happy for this.

              We only had the wooden runner on the beach and no carpet. If the red carpet goes with your colors then go for it. If not then ask for an different color or just thow it out.

                I did the real touch (Thank you Amy F) and no one even knew they were fake. My photoogh even made a comment and said he had no idea they were fake until he notice how much lighter they were than real flowrs.

                  -Erin
                  I think I gave my order in November and had everything in my hands my Feb. 4th for my Feb.13th wedding. I am sure it depends on how big your order is but its defiently worth checking. I am very very happy with everything.
