Your video is amazing. Thanks for the link to the paper lantern store. I was wondering if you used the light up lanterns or just the regular ones? Also, what kind of lights did you wrap around the posts?

 

There is a 30% off coupon through Sunday on the paper lantern site if anyone is interested.

 

Thank you and congrats!!!

No worries. I stressed over this and bought so many different colors to see what I liked before finally deciding. (Side note...we brought fishing line so they could hang the lanterns) I bought pink, mint and white. 12in, 16in, 20in. If I remember correctly I think we decided to not use all of the 20 inch as they were pretty big. I would not go smaller than 12 in. We bought 28 lanterns but I think we only used 24 of them. Sorry it's been a few months so hard to remember. We did not buy lights for the lanterns. The center lantern they put up was on a light, so it lit up.

Thank you! We were so happy with how it turned out.

 

We bought the regular paper lanterns. We used icicle lights to wrap around the poles.

@@linaco80 @@carrieandsam Thank you ladies! I loved the video too. I just got my full video from Caribe yesterday. They FedEx'ed it to us because we forgot to pick it up at our honeymoon resort, the El Dorado Casitas Royale.. Whoops! But yes, they did a fabulous job! 

 

My cousin is a photographer so she did the photography. I flew her in and she stayed more than 4 nights so I didn't have to pay the $800 vendor fee.

So cute! Love theme you have going.  Do you mind me asking when you purchased the fans? Were these blank when purchased and then you printed yourself? 

 

Thanks!

Hi Brides! 

 

I have a question regarding lighting... Withing the the wedding portal, the lighting options seem VERY expensive. $50 for one pole at Plaza Zavaz ($400 for whole thing), The bulb string lights $1500... Yikes. 

 

Has anyone brought in their own lights? If so, Did they charge for your extension cords and set up? Would prefer to bring my own. 

 

Thanks!

Nearly everyone brings their own... It's a major topic of conversation in the official Sensatori and the Sensatori Brides threads. Number of strings needed etc are all talked about.

No need for cords... Just tell them how to want them to be hung during your on site meeting and they will do so. There will be the overall set up charge for all decor and displays they will charge you for setting up your decor that is paid in cash and directly there at the resort in the meeting as they pay their manpower directly to do so. It's usually $250 or less depending on what decor/work you have them do.

@@LaurenR  My friend Ellen at Paper Pleasers designed all the paper items, including the fans. She is excellent to work with!

@@atyson03 we bought the maracas from etsy but we had a bad experience. We ended up painting them ourselves. I took my bridesmaid's dress swatch to Home Depot and I found the closest color to our seafoam. We painted the maracas and then my sister hand painted each one with a starfish and our names. They turned out really great!


@@LaurenR I used Katy for some of the decor I didn't want to lug down to Mexico. She has really reasonable prices and was great to work with! She has a bunch of items including vases, paper lanterns, even a photo booth.

 

You can reach out to her at katy@loveandrum.com

 

Here are her prices for string lighting:
 
$15 ea. - Stringlighting - Globe bulb string lighting with 25 bulbs per strand, 23 ft long/7 meters (I have 13 strands)
$15 ea. - Globe bulb string lighting, warm glow LED bulbs, 25 bulbs per strand, 23 ft long/7 meters (I have 7 strands)
$12 ea. - Christmas lights on white cording (I have 6 of these, 75 ft long, 150 bulbs per strand) or green cord (inquire for measurements, I have 4 of these)

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
