Hi Everyone! Just under 4 months for our wedding. We are sending in our final decision on wedding stuff within the next two weeks
Quick question - was the flower girl provided any petals to throw as she went down the aisle? If not, I'm thinking of getting her a sign saying something like "here comes the bride.."
The cake they provide - do they provide any additional decor for it like flowers? Did you guys get a cake topper or is it not necessary with the decor added to it?
If I get coral and turqoiuse "confetti" larger than a penny to spread as added color to the tables in reception, will they allow this?
Who takes care of putting out our Thank You's onto each individual place setting? The resort staff right?
Congrats on getting so close to your big day!
1. Flower petals are an extra. I believe I paid around $18.50 for a bag. They will give some to the flower girl and they will pre-sprinkle the isle for you as well.
2. They will put flowers on the cake if you request this. Generally what they do is just pick flowers off the ceremony ones and the WC will put them onto the cake. Can it be more formal? Probably, you would have to inquire. I preferred her just picking some from the ceremony flowers to save me in cost. You can also get them to put ribbon on the cake - I requested fuchsia and she used her own stock. I brought a cake topper as I felt it was more personalized and I think it looked really good. Either way is great though (you can see my pics in the links below)
3. I will assume that your confetti will be allowed. I was going to do this, but ended up not bothering. Wish I had though! My only concern for you though is if you are having your reception outside or in the palapa - if yes, the wind will blow it all off the tables. If you can, maybe get the gems/rocks instead because they are heavier. You can find them at Dollarama and Michaels in numerous colors.
4. Your WC will handle any decor you have for the ceremony and reception. You give it to her in your meeting before the wedding and just give her a heads up on how you want it set up. You can even take pics of it set up to show her. I had separated all my items into large ziplock bags so it was easier for her to know how much and what goes on each table.
Hope that helps!
