    Our appointment was at 10am the next day. When you check in they give you a gift basket with some bath stuff and a letter about your appointment.

I don't even know how many people will be joining us, as nobody else has booked with our TA yet.   I guess I need to get an approx headcount before planning much?   I'm nervous!!  I want to keep things as simple as possible.  the thought of lugging a bunch of things down to mexico has me tired just thinking about it.   what's the simplest, yet nicest set up anyone else has done?  like maybe just some lights, and lanterns?   I'll probably have a look at some of the websites you guys linked, so that I can get some ideas.  I am so BAD at this planning stuff.  ;-)


      My set up and decor was super simple. The resort is so beautiful you don't need a bunch of stuff to fill it up like a regular hall or venue. We had gazebo sheers in our colours and the matching fabric runner with 2 $60 flower arrangement on the gazebo. Those 2 flower arrangements went to the reception for decor on the guestbook table and then the reception tables had a coloured fabric runner, 3 candles I brought from home(which didn't stay lit b/c of ocean breeze) and a vase each which we put the bridal bouquets in. That was all for decor for us besides the favors by each spot! And it was awesome! The resort had tiki torches with fire leading up the path to Tucannes where our reception was held(I never paid for or requested them!!)

        In an effort to save money, my fiance decided to try and create our own menu, programs, and wedding day timelines for the welcome bags. So far he managed to make the menu (based off one I liked on Wedding Paper Divas) and I'm super excited/impressed!

            Erin 1,

            I am doing the same as Lindsey. Keeping it very, very simple. We chose the D'Italia Casitas Gazebo because it is very close to the water and directly on the beach. I can't imagine we need much more than the beach :)

            I am doing chair hangers with starfish and buying the chair sashes from that website that Allie provided. We are doing the reception at the Health Bar and just the tables with colored runners from the same website and a few shells on the table.

            I'm not doing programs or menus. I am having a fan with a little card on it that has our names on it. I will post a pic once I am able to get one of them done.

            So I would say it's all about what you like and what you really, really want. When I first started planning I had wanted all kinds of things....sheers, chair covers, sashes, flowers, lots and lots of flowers.....but after some time and seeing other pictures I actually decided that for me less was more!!!

            Have fun with it and decide what's really important to you!!

            Wow your FI has done an outstanding job! Looks super professional! Did he do the logo himself? Loving the deep purple tones.

              He did! I wasn't even planning on having a logo, but now I told him we should just slap this on everything!

                  Question for those that have already had their wedding did you do a Videographer? The budget has been a little blown out and I am trying to reel it back in... I was trying to figure out if it was really worth it to get a video. I am probably against it b/c I have always hated how I sound and look on a video that I don't want to bother with it but my FI does. 

                   

                  Thoughts? 

                   

                  Thanks, Betsy

                  We didn't. Like you, it was one of those things we just didn't have a budget to do. One of our guests did video with his phone, and then stitched it together and sent it to us on a DVD. It's a little shaky for the ceremony, but I've only watched a little bit of it. I can't get my fiance to sit through it! lol
