Table on beach????

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I've seen some pictures of brides getting married on the beach and they have a small table, maybe a 4 x 2 that they sign the legal papers or the minster stands behind it. Does anyone happen to know if this was something that was included or something you had to rent? I'm still trying to figure out a cheap but nice way to give me something to walk to for our ceremony, plus I was going to do one of those wedding guest photo frames and figured I could put in on the table for them to sign while Cain and I are taking our pictures.

 

Any information you can give would be great.

Hey Tammy,

 

So I think this would be a great question for your coordinator...I know, I know, she's not the best, but maybe after you "slap her around" ??

 

Anyway, another idea if you don't want to rent a table due to high cost, you could always find something at Costco while you are down there. Or, dare I suggest...smuggle a table from the room you are staying in worried2.gif.

 

Am I remembering that you are not allowed to have chairs on Pedregal beach? If so, I'm thinking maybe you can't have a table. Better talk to your Coordinator...

No we can't have chairs on Pedregal beach, however they will allow an arch or canopy and I know I seen a wedding on Pedregal that had a table on the beach so it has to be allowed, and it has to be cheaper then renting a canopy for $450.00 for a ceremony that lasts 15 minutes, that just seems crazy to me.

So all the creative girls on the board, what would you recommend, do you think I should do something, or just leave it to it's natural beauty. I thinking about doing rose pedals but again, to lead where.

BTW in case your wondering, yes I'm super anal and I have to plan every little detail and play it back in my head fifty times.. lol

Seriously speaking Tammy...I think it would be nice for you to have a table for signing/fingerprinting etc; as well as any other ideas you have (guest book, pictures, flowers, etc). Are you planning a sand ceremony or something similar? If so, I would definitely go for a table draped simply. If not, then I wouldn't worry about it.

Regarding the canopy situation, there are some crafty people that have actually made their own & brought with them to their DW wedding. I started to look into that but it just seemed like too much for me. Let me take a look & see if I saved any resources for that.

And then on the rose petal idea, it might be cool to do a "circle of love" with the petals. You & Cain would stand inside the circle of petals during your ceremony. I've seen this done at beach weddings & thought it was a nice feature. That way you don't have to worry about where the trail of petals needs to go, cuz it will just wrap right around you two little love birds!bunny.gif

Cute idea Christa with the "circle of love". That could be really cute an unique. I love after looking at all the cabo wedding seeing something that sets it apart from the others. Yes most of the pictures will have similar shots but something unique to us. MeganB posted a really cool picture of her and her hubbys hand print in the sand with their wedding band on the finger it would belong on in the sand. It was a very cute idea and something that is a unique to their wedding.

 

Hmmm I wonder if I could do the table along with the "circle of love" hmmm something to think about.

I was thinking something like the circle of love (though I didn't think of such a clever name!). On the Hilton's website here is a really nice version that looks very simple to put together (for your WC):

Worse comes to worse you could literally buy one of those round side tables (they're like $10 at target) that are unfinished and are sold flat in the boxes with the three legs that screw in and ship it to your WC ahead of time. Let me see if I can find one online to show you what I'm talking about. It would be even better if the costco there has one!... okay after some serious searching they are called "Decorator tables" and here is one for $6.99

I actually have two of these in my house that I painted and then put a glass tops on (they sell the glass if you want it but I don't think you need it. Honestly it's not even that heavy - you could just bring it with you and give it to your WC the day before...

That is a good idea, plus their cheap, and the cloths that go over it are standard size, I could add a prett sheer olive green to it too, so it dresses it up a bit more. Hmmm I think I read in someone's thread that their is a store on the way from the airport to downtown Cabo, kind of like a walmart.. I wonder if they have one, and I could just ask my WC to hold onto it for me.

    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far? 
    • I've had nothing but an amazing experience with my TA, Barbara (Babs) Vong- she actually works for Wright Travel Agency- the ones that run this forum! I'd suggest reaching out to them first- they're the experts!   My wedding is in February of 2020, and we started planning around August 2018, for what it's worth on a timeline.
