Hints for creating your Mexican Candy Table ***Pics**

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies,

 

Well among the most important things to me at my wedding was to have a candy table. I consulted a few people and was told that there was a Costco in Cancun, as well as Walmart and Sams club in Playa del Carmen. Upon arrival in Mexico, we decided to go to walmart for the candy, only to be seriously disappointed with the selection! We stopped at Sams club on the way back to the resort, and it was much cheaper and they had a few other options! I didn't have a membership, but the cashier was nice and used someone elses membership number for me...

 

I only say this to help die-hard candy lovers realize that the selection is very limited, and not like what you would find at home (to be expected really). If i was to do it again, i would definitely find a way to bring the majority of candy from home. The cost of the candy i bought down there was atrocious, and i could have just paid the overweight luggage fees instead. That being said, i got some really cute plastic bowls there for extremely cheap, and it ended up looking great and being a huge hit.

 

I know this thread will only help a few of you candy lovers, but i would have loved the info before i went, so hope it can help someone.

 

Here is the final product!

Oh, this is so cuteeee!! I really like the idea of candy table and for those wanting to have real Mexican candy, you must go to a "Dulceria" where you can find the candy made by artisans, in the big stores like Costco or Sams they have limited selections.

 

Here is one of the stores offering the real stuff in PDC area:

 

Dulces Artesaneles Riviera Maya. Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo. Paseo de la Castellana Lt. 9 La Toscana. (984). 984-1004650

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks

After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
