    Has anyone shipped their vases or packed them in their suitcases? I want simple vases for my center pieces and feel buying them would be more cost effective. Has anyone rented them? If so how much are we talking? I also heard there is a Cosco right in Cabo, does anyone know the location?

      I am renting some basic vases from my florists for the bouquets after the ceremony and they are $10 each. There is a costco in Cabo - you can check costco's website for exact location. Though from comments on this forum, I've gathered that you can't depend on it for things like vases or candles since merchandise varies so much.

        I plan on just having my WC coordinate it. I imagine the extra stress of wondering if these things are breaking in my luggage, plus the extra luggage fees, I feel like I already have so much to bring.

        As far as costco goes, I am not sure where but any taxi driver should know. I just figure I am going to get down there and I will want to worry about is a cold drink in my hand and haning out with family and friends is worth the extra money paid to a florist.

          I'm planning on doing both, having my florist provide a simple centerpiece, but then decorating the tables with additional vases (probably various sizes of hurricane glasses with sand, seashells, candles, etc) myself to cut costs. Besides the Costco, there is a Walmart in a strip mall along the main highway between Cabo and San Jose, which might be helpful for decor. There is also a large Mexican blown glass warehouse called Artesano's under the main highway leading into downtown Cabo. It will definitely have what you need, but you might need to be willing to bargain for the prices.

            I'm planning on renting the vases for my centrepieces but I might bring my own votives. The price they want per votive is insane!

                  Thanks for starting this thread; it's very helpful. I'm definitely renting the vases...too much hassle to bring my own.

                    The Costco is about 5 minutes away from the tourist center of Cabo San Lucas, on "the corridor", this is the road between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose.
                    The artesano's store is great too, but it is mexican style oriented, no plain vases there but colorful ones.

                      I had read at one point on here that brides were purchasing vases at a dollar store in town? Does anyone know anything about that? Is the store still around?
