    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

      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.

        Shellk - it's good to know that she hasn't disappeared!!!

        Also, I will ask Ael about the baskets and let you all know.

          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 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?

              Lisa- do you feel like the final pricing of everything is what you have anticipated for the most part?
              Loving married life! <3

                  OK here are the things I'm working on.

                  Our OOT Bags (designed by FI....he's too cute!) I didn't initally want bright orange, but he was so proud, i just couldnt say no. discountmugs.com cost about 134 for 35 or so:

                  List of other stuff we're putting in OOT bags:
                  Beach Balls
                  First Aid Kit
                  Playing Cards
                  Crossword Puzzles

                  These are my chairbows.....I LOVE THEM!!!!!!! The color is perfect and they are satiny and don't look cheap AT ALL! they were only .99 as opposed to 4 dollars they charge at the riu!!! here is the link:

                  I also got fans from oriental trading CO...but don't have pics. I ordered maracas too.... let me find the picture of those!

                    OK Here's more pics:

                    Our Maraca's (using these at the reception as a favor, I'm sure you've all heard the idea to shake for a kiss instead of clinking wine glasses) here is the link:Click the image to open in full size.

                    our sand ceremony kit from Click the image to open in full size.

                    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."

                      last but not least: here are some tags we ordered.

                      These are the ones we're putting on the OOT bags....my mom wrote the poem on the back, and I LOVE IT!!! I hope you can read it:
