We made the screen ourselves out of a white sheet and had my dad hang it between the ceremony and reception. We also had a friend bring the projector. They wanted a ridiculous amount of money for their screen and/or projector...

Can't remember how much, maybe $200huh.gif

We got mostly table decorations... All of our glassware and votive candles. We did buy some tequila gift sets there as well. Definitely not like an exact replica of our US WalMarts but they were relatively well stocked up.

We also found a few other glassware stores throughout town, which is where we bought our sand ceremony container and some containers to put sand from the reception site as a keepsake for our parents.

Because we really want to do the Maraca favors too. we've been trying to purchase them out here in NJ, but we haven't had any luck finding some. How much did you guys get them for if you don't mind me asking. I wonder if I should wait to get them while we're out there.

We got out maracas at a small store in Playa. Didn't have them at Walmart. Definitely shop around. We met guys trying to sell them to us for as much as $5 per pair. Eventually found a store with tons of them, still packaged and in pairs, who was willing to do 100 for $100.

I have the address and contact info somewhere around here!

All the maracas we saw looked the same. You can see them in our slideshow.

There's a once daily bus from EDR to Playa or you can just cab it for approx $20 each way... We needed a cab with all that we bought. :-)

Thanks for your response, brigopens!

I received email from Valeria regarding the rental price of the projection screen.

 

30 guests tent: 800 usd

30 guest dance floor: 230 usd

Projection screen: 550 usd

 

I rather buy a million threadcount white sheets and put it up myself like your dad!

I think the trip was about 15-20 minutes for $20 each way. I am trying to find some picts of them but I have not gotten the pro-picts yet. I think we are getting them this weekend. If I find one, I will post it.

Did you guys see the updated prices for 2009 banquet kit?! The price jumped up so high!!! I can eat at Joel Robuchon or French Laundry for this price!!!

I'm hoping that Valerial would give me the 2008 price since I booked before the price change... otherwise, I would have to start a petition like with the photographer vendor fee!

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
