      I love the idea of the rose balls-too cute! Where do you buy the shepard hooks and how are you planning on packing them? Just in a suitcase? Thanks girl

        We kept everything simple and took a CD player, orange extension cord (one of the long heavy duty ones) and flameless tealights. We ended up using only the tealights.

          What are you going to do with your stuff after the wedding, since we are using the same colors maybe I can take it off your hands?

            For those of you bringing rose petals for the ceremony, are you buying silk or freeze-dried? You might want to check with your resort if it's ok to use silk. I read somewhere on this forum that some resorts like to be eco-friendly and don't recommend scattering silk petals on the ground. They may end up in the ocean and that's not good :) I plan on buying freeze-dried petals. They are more expensive than silk ones though

              Surprisingly, pretty much nothing!

              Programs, escort cards, guestbook... We are renting candle centerpieces and tablecloths from the resort. For favors, we're purchasing maracas from the market when we get to Mexico!

              This week, I am going to try and put together budget-friendly OOT bags for our guests. It's not possible for us to make an elaborate bag, but I'd still like a token of appreciation for our guests :)

                True girls! I personally think you shouldn't do them anyway (on the beach) unless you are picking them all up! Take care of our fragile environment!

                Also keep in mind depending on where you are going but you may not actually be able to bring freeze-dried petals into that country!

                  I'm planning on taking centerpieces for 4 tables,
                  programs,fans for ceremony
                  OTT bags
                  starfish place cards,
                  and wine stoppers for reception favors.
                  Hopefully, that's it... don't know how I'm going to get it all there yet.

                    I LOVE your rose balls! So they came just like that and you changed the ribbon? Can I ask how much they were? Do they have other colors?
