I wanna do flower pedals in the sand and turquoise or turquoise and orange tulle on the canopy . I want to do paper lanterns by the pool brcause i heard the lighting is not great also candles around the pool where were seated. I hope we can share decorations cuz it would save us alot of suitcases lol I think I'm gonna bring and set up my self because I find the resort expensive :s also just wondering what ur guests paid to come down ? Since we are Canadian brides just seeing if I got a fair deal :)

 

Hi dee dreams and other fellow Canadian brides :)

I'm also planning on putting hand fans on our guests' chairs - it seems like such a practical yet pretty thing to do! We're having about 30 guests, in February 2013. What are you ladies thinking about for flowers/bouquets? I've been looking at "real touch" artificials as a possible alternative to fresh, but that's another thing to pack!

Thank u very much for the pics and pics from past weddings :) and still a bit confused the only backup rain locations for dinner is the world cafe and ballroom :s and what if there is two or three brides on that day isn't dinner all at the same time if there is only two back up locations how does that work ? And ashk congrads and yay another Canadian bride :) for bouquet I'm Doing something simple I think like orange stargazer lilys and maybe something else to give a bit of contrast and I think it's included in the dreams of love package so I won't have to bring then down

Hi Ladies!

 

Dee Dreams:  Sheena 2011 is right.  There is more than one ballroom.  I don't think the reception can be in any of the other restaurants other than the World Cafe...but I didn't specifically ask that. I did ask if a reception could be at the El Patio restaurant and the wedding coordinator at the webinar said it wasn't possible.

 

Ashk:  Welcome and congrats!  I have the ultimate wedding package so the bride's bouquet is included. However, the bridesmaids bouquets are not.  Ideally, I would like the resort to provide the flowers or an outside vendor in Mexico to drop them off because I don't want to have to bring everything with me. It all depends on the price.  Right now, I'm making my invitations so I'm a bit preoccupied with those.

Hi Dee Dreams,

There are a few wedding sites that do ship to Canada, my favorite being www.weddingstar.com as they are an Albertan company based out of Medicine Hat! I bought a number of things off of this site (including personalized playing cards) and they were all delivivered to my door in Calgary in 2 days!

 

Some other sites include:

http://weddingfactorydirect.com/broochs.html

http://www.beforetheidos.com/Breeze_Wedge_Flip_Flop_in_White_or_Ivory_p/carb-7754.htm

www.lightinthebox.com

www.etsy.com

 

 

I guess it really depends what you are looking for...

Hi ladies,

 

I asked Anabel for dimensions for the round tables and here is what she gave me:

 

Length 3.60cm

Width- 1.80cm

Height- 80cm

 

I think these measurements may have been for the round cocktail tables and I was should have been more specific when I asked for the dimensions. I am hoping to get the measurements for the round reception/dinner tables....would any of you have them?

 

We've been thinking about bringing our own fabric down as well (chair sashes and tables runners) and we are having a hard time figuring out which would be the most cost efficient and time efficient!

The resort does charge to put on the chair sashes, decorations, etc. and it can get a bit more expensive than you prepare yourself for. It's all in the planning guide that they send out a few months before hand, clearly broken out. Depending on the wedding schedule for the day, the coordinator might also really try to dissuade you from setting things up. If there are 3 weddings on your day, there is pretty quick turnaround window - so they don't like non-hotel staff doing decorations and set up because it could potentially interfere with someone else's wedding. However, if you are lucky to have the day to yourself, I'm sure they are much more accomodating with doing decor set up yourself.

 

Just keep in mind that this is your special day - and running around setting up chair covers, table clothes, etc, might add stress to your day. Personally, I was going to see what I could do myself to save some money, but I realized - I wanted to go the beach and go the spa with my girlfriends, not worry about setting up the decorations in between getting my hair done and putting on my dress. I handed them over to Anabel and paid the few hundred dollars for everything to be set up, and for me (normally stressed out), it was worth every last penny to not have to worry about it.
