    Oh your bringing the big ones??? We are just bring the 11" tall ones for 9.99. they are preassembled which is why the transport is a bit trickier. Im worried about the glass breaking.

     

    Im sure just handing them out to friends and family to throw somewhere in the middle of the clothes (to protect it) would work fine. Those big ones are packed fairly well and its all flat so there shouldnt be an issue.

      Ya that's why we chose them since we can assemble them and hopefully break them down without wrecking them to bring home after to use for our AHR

        You are welcome!! Yes- adding a color def gives it a nice "pop" that I think the decorations need! Esp if you have bright colors as your wedding colors like I did! :)

        I absolutely love these branches! They are so elegant

          Ok ladies- here are my close-ups.  I used 15 strands of raffia and used a folding chair to estimate the desired length.  I had 3 colors so I made 5 strands of each color per decoration.  You can see how I hot glued the cardstock to the back of the starfish for support. Also, the raffia curls much more than this, but again- mine was packed to and from Mexico- so they straighten out a little via travel.   Let me know if you have any other questions! :)  And they really aren't that hard to make- I think two of us made 6 of them in about an hour and a half and we were girl talking the whole time- so you know how that slows things down! :) 

          this is such a great idea!

            Does anyone know where I can buy wholesale flowers in Cancun/Playa Del Carmen area? My mother-in-law-to-be is a florist and I would love for her to be able to contribute by making some flower arrangements. Thanks.

            How are you bringing yours? I have to bring 5 and I have 1 30" hard case suitcase so I'm really hoping they will be fine in that and not break. Ya I understand about the flowers but luckily my flower shop I'm working with has very reasonable prices compared to alot of quotes I've seen other brides get. It's costing us $200 for the flowers for 8 pails (4 tables) and I'm brining down the pails.... The 99 cent ones from ikea lol. Our head table will just have the two bridesmaids bouquets in glass vases on either side of the lantern.

            Hi, just wondering which florist you're dealing with and how you're getting the florist your pails beforehand... we are also doing metal pails with flowers and then candles around and weren't sure how to go about getting flowers from an outside source. :)

              My wedding is in Jamaica and I am dealing with floral fantasies. I'm not getting the pails to the florist before hand I do believe that they are just bringing the flowers to the resort and assembling them there.

              @tkuzma:

               

              What beautiful centerpieces! I'm thinking of doing the same thing. Only because I don't want it to be hard for others to have conversations at the table.

               

              Do the crystal come in different colors?

              oh you're getting married in Jamaica, sorry... I couldn't see that on the mobile site :) that's a great idea to get them to assemble them at the resort though. We should see if we can find someone in Riviera Maya to do that!
