THank you!!!!!! I got so many inspirations from this forum that I am more than happy to answer any questions!! any!!
Ok- I actually was suppose to meet someone from Marvin's company at the lobby at 12:30pm....I called him a few times because no one was there....they ended up being stuck in traffic, so i just left to my room to get ready and figured that once they show up they will call my room...needless to say the concierge came to my room at 1:30 pm (time yourself with delivery time in case they are late! luckily my wedding wasnt until 4!) with the flowers that had been delivered...I only got a bride bouquet and 2 bridesmaids bouquets, boutteniere and 6 bags of orange and fuchsia rose petals for the ceremony isle and the tables.... so yes, you are certainly allowed to meet him in the lobby......I just gave the concierge the money and he brought it down to marvin, also asked him to keep the change as tip for doing me the favor! my mom then brought down the rose petals to the wedding center and my WC Elizabeth Sotero took care of it all........
Maracas- Where from amols.com http://www.amols.com.../product/MX750O super cheap!! 1.95 per pair!!!!
For the tags, I just created it on microsoft word with my monogram.....made a table with some columns and copied and pasted....super easy!!
The starfish I got online (you can basically google it and find so many companies that sell them) even on ebay look for "finger starfish"....I ended up spray painting them orange and some fuchia.....and printed the tags at home on cardstock....
As for the menu- I created it myself using my monogram and playing with fonts....then i uploaded it to vistaprint.com and wala! beautiful menus for a super cheap price!
When I met with my onsite WC Elizabeth the day we arrived, I simply gave her a suit case full of EVERYTHING i had from chair sashes, to unity candles, maracas, menus, place cards etc and she took care of everything!!! I didnt need anyone from my guests to take care of anything the day of the wedding............i dont know why some WCs tell brides that they cant help with that....its their freaking job!
Let me know if i missed anything!!! Good luck with your planning!!!!

I thought of them too as wedding favors and the starfish as seating cards! Were the starfish all one color and where did you get them? Did you do your menu and tags yourself? And did you have someone from your wedding party set it up for you as well as the ribbons on the pew?
My WC told me that whatever I bring with me (chair sashes, centerpieces, decorations, favors, seating cards) the resort isnt responsible for them so I have to get someone from the wedding party to set it all up. *sigh* Another stress I have for the wedding. I hope I feel the same way you did about yours. Bc frankly I'm tired planning. lol. Thanks for the posts and congrats again!
