    I've been in love with the idea of using round ottomans on the beach for our ceremony since I first saw the photo of this. Our florist can get square ottomans for us, and they are $35 each plus the cover... I'm stuck on the round though. So I just got a quote back from a company with round ottomans - $75 each PLUS $50 to $75 for the cover! Holy cow, what are these things made of that they are that expensive?!

    FI and I bought an ottoman yesterday at Linens 'n' Things for $40 that was covered in a beautiful damask fabric, and it was just this cheap wood with a round hallow base and a round top.

    So I don't get how these super simple ones would cost $75 without covers? It just goes to show the mark-up prices in the wedding industry I guess.

      WoW! Is that just to rent them or are you actually purchasing them?

            I'm interested in this too. I'm getting married in Puerto Vallarta and may do the same. Does anyone know the average cost?

              That's CRAZY expensive!!! Are there any other alternatives that you would still be happy with that are less expensive?
