Haven't quite figured out the centrepiece bit quite yet.. If we don't figure something out before we leave, I imagine we'll just get a few smaller flower bouquets for the tables. In general, I've found it's much cheaper to buy stuff here and bring it down, than it is to "rent" it from the resort.
Hey there! I see you're getting married at Now Jade in the Mayan Riviera! I've heard great things about that resort.
I'm a newlywed from Vancouver that lives down here in Playa Del Carmen, and I have quite a few decor items leftover from our wedding in May. I've decided to rent things out to brides that don't want to lug things like vases & mason jars down here, and have priced things quite fairly compared to the resort's prices. I have a lots of different types of bottles, mason jars, vases and lanterns, as well as a variety of other items.
I'm also always interested in buying items that brides bring down and would like to sell after their weddings.
If you'd like to see some photos and a price list, please send me a PM with your email address and I'll send you all the info. Congrats on your upcoming wedding and happy planning!
