    I know, but, I'm trying not to let it get the best of me, no matter what the centerpieces will be, it will still be really nice.

    Francis and I were just chit-chatting and we think that we might have come up with a fun solution. We are planning on going into Playa Del Carmen when we arrive, and visiting their strip of local shoppes and vendors. We are hoping that we might come across 8 to 9 unique and interesting artefacts that could then be used as centerpieces. Then, we will have a fun little draw at the end of our reception for each table [1 centerpiece per 7 people per table] and whom ever wins the draw, gets to take home that artefact as a gift.

    I know if might cost a little bit extra, but I think that it would be fun. Then, we can still have candles and such to give off light.

    What do you think about this idea?

      I think that is a great idea!!! If the resort is going to charge you that much, why not spend around the same amount of money on something that one of your guest take home as a great reminder of your wedding.

        I just saw that you are getting married at the Occidental!!!! That was our second choice, and it was a tough decision between the Barcelo and the Occidental. The only reason why we choose the Barcelo over he Occidental was because of the beach. You are going to have so much fun!!!! We plan on going to the Occidental when it's just the two of us for a holiday.

          There is no Michaels in the Cancun area.... if you read around on these posts so many girls say that the beauty of their wedding backdrop (ie. beach) was beautiful enough.

          I am just bringing a aqua candle, putting it in the hurricane vase they provide for free, sprinkiling some sand on the table & putting a different picture of my FI & I next to each hurricane on each table.

          I really don't think its worth spending $$ on centerpieces, I can't truly recally many centerpieces from weddings I have been to & if I do remember them... I really don't appricate how much they probablly cost :)

          I think the best thing about a DW is that you can be simple & no one expects some elaborate centerpiece!
