By the way, I couldn't really see clearly, but what did you have in your centrepiece?
As our centerpiece I wanted to keep it as simple and CHEAP as can be. I used the same Orchid Flower Heads I used to make my MOH/BM/Bride Bouquet. I put 3 white orchids, 3 coral orchids, Sand, 2 fluorolytes and starfish submerged in water. Surrounding it, I had my Table # in frames with my Puppy's picture, votive candles, 2 maraca's which i purchased at the mall at Hacienda Tequila. I used as placecards glass votives that I purchased from Michael's and wrapped them with our guest names. and wrapped it with a colored ribbon of their dinner choice. For the escort cards, I purchased white starfish from Ebay, and attached our guest name with the table #.

This is a picture of when I realized I forgot to put my garter on for the garter toss! LOL! My awesome BM & MOH's ran up to my room to get it for me. But, that was after I realized NO ONE HAD THE KEY TO OUR ROOM! I forgot to take it with me when I left!

I got the maraca's at the mall in downtown Cabo. When we did our resort visit in May, we took notes of what and where we needed to find some items that were cheap. The maraca's, Tequila for the the tequila table, and Cigars. The maraca's were only $1.50 per pair! Hacienda Tequila was the name of the store.

Okay, this might be a really dumb question, but how did you place the flowers in the vase to they are floating the way they are. I am using the same exact vase and my original idea was to have floating orchids inside with some fluorolytes (except my sand is on the outside as I'm using a plate charger under the vase), but when I tried it, they all just fell to the bottom. I tried using some fishing lines to hold them in place but that turned into a disaster. That's why I was so curious as to how you did yours. I pretty much abandoned the idea, but now that I see yours...HELP! :o)

thanks...

Honestly, I had the idea, but never tried it at home before we left. I just told the WC what to do, and how I wanted it, and she did it. I'm thinking it may be the type of flowers you are using. are they fresh or artificial? I double checked my pictures of all of our table pictures just to see if this was the only centerpiece that had floating flowers. All of my table centerpieces were floating. So, I think it may be the type of flowers you are using. I used artificial. I purchased them from Michael's. They aren't the real "real touch" orchids, but, it's close enough. Everyone thought they were real!
Give it a shot, and let me know the outcome.

Wonderful thread!! Congratulations! I love your guest sign-in tree. It's so dramatic & pretty!

I love your shoe valet sign & just bought a bunch of stuff to try & make one. Did you make yours? What materials did you use?

Thanks!

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
