I emailed Yinette about the extra decorations and told her I want the bows for the chairs at the receptions and she told me I had to rent them again, I thought that was weird!!!! I also love your starfish idea for the centrepeices... Did you bring them down with you or just buy them down there?... I assume once I arrive there will be lots more choices, i hope!!! I found the prices the same here to rent :s... One more question - Your reception on the outdoor terrace, what time was that at? Mine starts at 630pm but your looks really light out still which I like.
Thanks so much! Your pics are beautiful
Haha, thanks! I was pretty pumped about the colors (the BM dresses were $40 from target.com...can't go wrong with that!) No, the roses were not from the resort. I worked with an outside florist for the roses. (My mom is a florist and really wanted to make my bouquets, so we just got a bunch of long stem roses and she made them.)
We got the basic decoration package that, I believe, included the chair bows, floral arrangement, and fabric for the gazebo-thing on the beach. But, they did move those chairs over to La Brasa, so we definitely got our money's worth!
My mom bought the starfish down there (there is a decent sized outdoor market just next to the resort). It was kind of a last-minute thing but I thought it was pretty cute.
My reception started at 6:30. My wedding was 4-4:30, cocktail hour was 5-6, and the reception was 6:30-10:30. We still had plenty of daylight.
If you have any other questions, please let me know!
