1. Did you bring a cake from your resort or order one thru La Barcaza? Since our cake was included in the wedding package fro our resort, we had it boxed and took it with us on the bus. We told our wedding coordinator ahead of time that this was our intention and they were great about it!
2. Did you tell your guests to bring a change of clothes for the water piece? We let our guests know that there would be an opportunity to take a dip if they chose, and to bring a change with them.
3. Was it chilly at all on the water? And if so, did you tell your guests to wear a light jacket or anything? Honestly, it really wasn't for us, but we were also there July 1st (maybe this made a difference?). The breeze felt good!
4. Did you bring favors on board and if so, any good ideas that ties into the boat? Ok so here was something that I wish I had known. We didn't know that the boat would provide a centrepiece on the tables. I'm not sure if they did this because we only had a couple big tables, so perhaps check with Flori ahead of time. We brought our own down with us to Dominican, and this was actually completely unnecessary! The centrepieces they had on the tables were sunken orchids, which was GORGEOUS! We brought our chair sashes with us and all of the girls quickly tied them on together. You can give those things to Flori when you meet her at your resort, but since we were using them at our ceremony, we couldn't hand them over. We also brought table runners, but we really didn't need them. In fact, it kind of blew around when we were cruising along, so maybe don't have them unless you are dead set on having them We didn't use white tablecloths, since we wanted a very casual feel! To be honest, the boat is gorgeous and the atmosphere is fantastic, I don't think extra deco is necessary.... but like I said, if you really want it, make sure that things you use are tied down
Thanks for any help!!!!!!
