I asked Cecilia about bringing my own chair sashes and decor. She responded by telling her staff can decorate for you, but they do charge $2 per item . . at that cost, you might as well rent the decor through them, right?!?!?!?! I still plan to bring my own sashes, linens, and minimal decor, but I plan to pre-designate set up duties to my family and bridal party!
I also asked if they recycle the chairs used in the ceremony for the reception, and she said yes. Can anyone else confirm that too? I hope I wasnt confusing her . . I was really trying to figure out if I need to bring DOUBLE the amount of chair sashes . .or if they just move the ceremony chairs to the reception area.
I have ordered the chinese lanterns also, which is outrageous in price, but I think in the long run worth it. I love the way they look!! Cecilia did confirm that they are lit up as well.
I have also confirmed that the photographer for my wedding in October is Juan Navarro . .I am specifically requesting Juan (or taking advice if you gals know of any of his associates that are especially good). If not, I may do an outside vendor. I already contacted Elizabeth Medina, and they are booked !. I need to make decisions on this asap!!!
As for ceremony and reception decor . . I have been in contact with the florist the resort uses and they have been pretty good so far. The pricing still seems high to me, but I am looking to do ceremony aisle decor that can then translate into my reception centerpieces. I want to attatch a photo of what I am envisioning, but I dont know how... Can amyone help me?
I really do not want to travel with any more items, I already feel so stressed just thinking about it, LOL!
What are you ladies planning on doing for ceremony and reception decor? I am looking at approximately 8 tables, and I am imagining a magical, beachy, lit up feel. I want lots of sparkle and candlelight. I will most likely bring my own voltives (or probably LED tea lights) to help enhance this look.
