Post your centerpieces here

Recommended Posts

Thanks for posting that Tori.  I am torn between buying here and transporting versus buying down there.  I don't want to run around buying items down in Mexico but I don't want to lug tons of decorations around either....

Oh!!! You're getting married in mexico... I wish I could remember where I read it, if I come across it again I will definitely send you the link but one girl bought her hurricane vases at a market (i think) 10 mins from her resort for like NOTHING!! Now that I think of it, it may have been on this thread!  I am getting married in DR and unless I hear about someone else buying there and can plan for it in advance I would be too nervous I would be disappointed when I couldn't find what I wanted.  If you can get a referral from someone I would say BUY THERE! soooooo much less stress!

With all of these threads it is so hard to keep all the information straight sometimes! lol  I will do a little research to find that information.  I don't know anyone who has gotten married in the DR but have you checked online because there might be a Sam's Club or a Wal-Mart that might sell what you are looking for?

I sent my WC an inspiration pic with the limes and they just did it.

I rented vases for like $5 a piece from the resort. It isn't the cheapest option but beats having to bring down.

Chapa, where did you get married?  

 

I wonder if my resort rents vases, we found great ones for $2 but I would almost rather pay the $5 and not worry about bringing them down!

I was married at Azul Sensatori in Riviera Maya, Mexico. I would imagine most resorts that hold weddings would rent vases if asked.

To respond to your question about DR having a Wal-Mart or Sam's Club, not in Punta Cana, which is one of the most popular resorts/DW spots in the DR in my opinion and experience so far reading this forum :) From what I know, their closest supermarkets are in the town nearby called Higuey but that is about an hour away, but nothing to the scale of a Walmart. I got quoted a ridiculous sum of money for centerpieces at my resort and that is why I am bringing my own centerpieces.

 

I plan to bring them on carry-on and my friends and family members are willing to help carry them on as well in their carry-ons since I will be taking about 6 sets of centerpieces. It's a 4 hour plane ride so it's not like they are traveling for that long and as long as we secure them well and pack carefully, they should make it ok. that's the plan!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
