Is it a cost factor or just because you want you own???

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
