renting vases vs. buying

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
