    I'm confused. I never thought about taking my own centerpieces, chair sashes, decorations, etc? Didn't know that the resort didn't provide them (or maybe for a fee) and didn't know the resort allowed you to bring you own stuff. Is everyone taking their own because they want it their way on their special day or is it a cost factor?

      I think it's a little bit of both. Pictures can only tell you so much so if you want it a certain way I would bring my own. I think generally it'll be a bit cheaper if you bring your own but then you have to travel with it and are stuck with the stuff after the wedding is over.

        I'm going to do it for both reasons. One because the centerpieces I want were quoted about $70 higher than what I can make them for. Plus I like knowing that it's set up the way I want it and I can save money! I also plan on using those centerpieces at our AHR and just adding more so it will work out best for me.

            Hi there,
            Mine was cost factor, I seen pictures of the centrepieces and they ran about $75.00 per table and I have 5 - 6 tables. I was able to come up with something I liked for around $12.00 table. Sashes I wasn't sure about the cost and never inquired, I wanted the correct colour and I just found them online very cheap. I have a canadian vendor for anyone that needs Sashes and she is cheap. Just saves the duty if your in Canada, PM me if you need that information.
