Centerpieces - Paradisus Palma Real or anywhere really

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

So I had a planning session with Teresa at the PPR yesterday and first I must say that everything went very very smoothly it was amazing. I feel very confident that everything I talked about and want is going to happen and be ok.

 

The only thing that we did not get done is a decision on the centerpieces. I never really wanted centerpieces with flowers, I always wanted tall vases with water and candles in them and lots of little votive candles. When we discussed this though and I saw that it was going to get pretty pricey and I might need to decide on something else.

 

What has everyone else done for their centerpieces? I feel like everything is expensive and am not really sure what to do.

Have you considered bringing your own centerpieces? You can get vases and candles pretty inexpensive at places like Hobby Lobby and Homegoods if you have either in your area. Also, if you get on Hobby Lobby's webpage that have great sales and you can check out when they have their vases on sale. Also, from what I have read on the site, PPR sets up your items for no charge.

Hi Lindsay, I'm getting married at the the PPR on February 13th and my maid of honor made really pretty topiaries with sea shells for our centerpieces. It can be very expensive to buy the centerpieces from them, especailly if you want something other than flowers. If you have someone that is pretty crafty, maybe you can consider bringing your own like we are. Good Luck and Congratulations :)

Hi All,

Thanks for your responses. I actually had my second call with Teresa yesterday and I decided on a simple and not too expensive centerpiece. We are going to get 3x5 inch square vases and fill them with about a dozen to a dozen and a half dark orange roses (which match my bridesmaid dresses). We are also going to put about 8 tea lights on each table. We also have place cards we are putting on the tables which are small seashells that have a slit in them where we are putting the actual card with the name which is pretty as well and we have our gifts which are nicely wrapped in a box with a bow. So between all of this I think the tables are going to look pretty full and pretty, I can't wait to see how it all looks!

Just wondering, what are you giving as your gift?

We are using starfish as our escort cards and we are putting a bottle of wine in everyone's room upon arrival with personalized labels on them so going with the theme we got chrome wine stoppers with starfish on top and they are packaged really nicely in a small box with an aqua ribbon which also fits in with the aqua package we are doing and we have aqua napkins on the table!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
