    i was told by Sandra that there are vases and votives around the resort that can be used for free for centerpieces so i would ask ana to send you a pic of those items and if you could share the pics that would be great. I asked pillar and she sent me one pic but i can't seem to open it anymore and i believe there are more items available than that based on what sandra told me. This could save us all alot of money and transportation headaches! I think your plan to stick with white is good. You could throw in a splash of pink and use the stargazer lily centerpiece i saw in the book.

I don't like purple enough to have it as one of my wedding colors. So what I was planning to do was just use candles and white flowers. I did see a nice candle centerpiece in the book and was hoping that i could use that so I wouldn't have to bring any candles or glass vases.

      T&A I love the colors you picked.  I am doing orange, yellow, and red so depending on what you do for your centerpieces we could possibly still share.  Your butter and melon colors would fit perfectly with my theme.  I'm glad your getting married on the 3rd so I can peek in on your wedding too!  And of course you're welcome to peek in on mine.

      Lisa I'm sorry we're going to miss you...just by 2 days

      I love your colors!! Since my FI wanted a say in the colors (had to give him a vote on something lol) I didn't get to choose those. I will peek in on both of your weddings and feel free to peek in on mine :)

I don't know my exact numbers yet but should have a better idea by October. I am expecting about 40. These are the ones I am thinking of getting.

        I would be interested in doing this, sharing I mean. I could pay you through PayPal or something. I don't have any numbers or anything yet, but let's keep it in mind. I will get there the day when you leave.

          Great let's do this then. I don't know numbers either and we don't need to order them anytime soon as they are shipped within 24 hours. but we can talk more about details later. Do you like the chair bows I was thinking of? It looks like we may even have the same number of guests so it may work out perfect. We will both have to pay the resort 1$ for ironing them though but at 0.69cent a piece plus shipping that's not bad.

            Yes, I do like the ones you were looking at. I'm not sure I want chair covers but I do want chair bows. I'm hoping we will have around the same number of guests, as I have no clue yet but I'm hoping to have about 40 guests. We still have time though if they ship that fast. I'm struggling with my STDs right now, thought it might be fun to design something myself but it is driving me crazy so I might just do the Vistaprint design and add text.

              If I did STD's I would have done the one with the three pictures of us holding up little signs with the date. I saw someone on here do it and it looked really cute and can be uploaded into a vista print template. For example for you you and the FI would take a pic holder up a 5 then one with a 4 and then one with an 11 for the date of your wedding. Just an idea!

                Thanks for the suggestions, but I would never get my FI to do something like that hahaha! We want like a photo of a nice beach (and I have one but would like more design than just the text I think and Vistaprint's fonts are boring) so more people will want to come :)

                  Hello ladies! 

                   

                  I was just wondering since most of you have already negotiated with Pilar or Ana...I was wondering if anyone asked about the Bamboo/brown chairs for the ceremony.  There's a picture on the website that has the chairs in their set up.  I was hoping to use those but wanted to know how much extra they would be. 

                   

                  Thanks for your help. :)

                      Pilar calls them "tiffany" chairs and they come in either brown or gold.  I think they are $7 a chair to rent.
