Shelk- I'm happy to hear that you at least heard from her!

 

When I read about the bags of rose petals, I had just assumed we would need to bring our own baskets if we wanted them. I'm sure they have them there, but probably for a charge...just like everything else!

I second the comments about no baskets being included. At my wedding I don't think I'll have any flower girls so I'll request them to disperse the petals before the guests arrive. If you are having flower girls I'd bring baskets.... or buy them at the WalMart in Playa del Carmen wink.gif

 

Shellk- sorry about all that drama. Don't be shy to be forward with her. Don't let her think she can stomp on you and get away with it!! Lay down the law early! When you receive it, thank her for the post and tell her you'd appreciate if she'd take the time to respond to your phone calls and emails in a more timely fashion.

Lisa congrats on 1 month to go- it sounds like you aren't stressing but hopefully enjoying this time!- well maybe stressing just a little wink.gif You girls are doing such a great job of thinking of everything- I would guess baskets aren't included but can be rented for the day- Lisa are you having any decorations on the chairs or anywhere else?

we have no plans on how to get it home. we figure it will get messed up and we'll re-do it at home....unconventional, but it's us :)

 

Also....here are the vows were planning to say. I actually don't know if they allow you to pick your vows, but if they do we'll say these: "(Name), I love you. You are my best friend. Today I give myself to you in marriage. I promise to encourage and inspire you, to laugh with you, and to comfort you in times of sorrow and struggle.

I promise to love you in good times and in bad, when life seems easy and when it seems hard,

when our love is simple, and when it is an effort. I promise to cherish you, and to always hold you in highest regard. These things I give to you today, and all the days of our life."
