I love the branch Idea, are you buying the branches from them? If not how are you going to travel with them?
I just ordered my chair bows today and they shipped the same day! only .70 a pc! such a steal! I think I am just going to get navy blue round place mats at Target and use in the center of the table and put the lanterns and candles on them/around it just trying to think of the easiest way to travel. the website was www.bbcrafts.com
I also ordered 50 mini maracas from AmScan (throught my work) for each of the guest and we are doing "shake for a kiss"
Since I am going down with a large Chartered group with a local radio station they bring the bands down. Last year we got engaged on their show at the resort next door - Now Sapphire. So this year we planned our wedding the same time. But I will be arriving friday the 16th and staying 7 nights. The radio show plays from 12-2pm typically and I wanted to catch some of that, so if you are willing to take the earlier salon times that would be perfect b/c I can hop in after that!
Those bands will not be there, those were the bands from the past - but the bands stay at the resort so it makes for a ton of fun!
Well, the patio deck that is wooden that is by the infinity pool is what I choose. I have submitted stuff in the past and they kept confusing my times. I am sure it will all work out.
bc of my group size I choose not to do cocktail our and just use the pool bar and have the included trio play over there while people are taking pictures.
I have 4 girls standing up in the wedding.
So fun talking to someone who has same date!

Yes I am confused about the reception site. I booked it with them last March. Are you sure the pool deck and patio deck are the same? There is a restuarant El Patio, I am wondering if that is what you mean? I also emailed Yamina. Interestingly someone emailed me the other day asking to confirm the locations and I was confused bc I had already confirmed this almost a year ago....
I have a similar vision for mine. Here is a photo of what I am trying to do. My colors are blues and corals. I found cheap submersible lights for inside the vases and also lanterns for about $4.99 each. If you could get me a better deal that would be greatly appreciated! I also found manzanita branches that I am going to attempt to spray pain and hang either crystals from (expensive) or tea lights like this pic.
I haven't found the table cloths or bows yet. I am not sure what color to use for those. I am leaning towards coral bows and white table cloths with a blue runner of some sort? Not sure.
How many girls do you have? I have 5. I am usually the designated makeup artist of the group but of course I won't be doing this on my wedding day so I understand why you wouldn't want to do everyone's hair haha. My best friend and MOH had her wedding a few years ago at Dreams Cancun and she had all the girls get hair and makeup done. There were two people there that day. It took until maybe 12 and we started early. We were also luckily the only wedding that day bc she has like 7 people. I am willing to start as early as poss.
