Taking extra decor to the resort.

Recommended Posts

Is anyone taking extra decor's to Jamaica?

I think the resort is charging a lot of extra decor.

 

I will be getting the waves of love package..but i am thinking  of taking down real touch flowers for my bridesmaid and flower girl.

 

I am also hoping to take down extra blue flowers to place on the tables to make it look better since the package is simple.

 

So my question is has anyone done this before?

do you know if the resort is okay with these extra decor?

I'm getting married at the GP Palladium and I ended up purchasing Real Touch Orchids to use.  For $60, I have 4 boutinerres, 4 corsages, and 2 branches for my bridesmaids.  They seriously look so real and turned out perfect!  Only took me and my FMIL less than a hour to make them all.  Great deal since the florist was going to charge $20/boutinerre and $80+ for bridesmaid bouquets/stems.  I'm also bringing down my own Sand Ceremony vases.  Resort was going to charge $50, got my own personalized set for $25.  Otherwise I'm sticking with the resort decorations and will be paying $50 for the centerpieces (Waves of Love package as well).

We're planning to bring our own candles and chair sashes...our wedding coordinator said it's cheaper to buy in the US than to rent them in Jamaica.

There are tons of brides who were just married who took their own decorations, and I'm pretty sure there was no cost.

Hi Shelly!  I must have missed this part when I read your thread the first time... I'm taking down Preserved Orchids (white with pink accents) to scatter around the tables and also having them place one on each plate with the seashell.  :)

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
