It was simple and didn't take up much room. 

 

 

 

 

 


That is a GREAT idea!!!!!  I love it!!!!!!!!!  Did you buy the liquor once you got to Mexico?  Did your hotel charge you anything for using that as your centerpiece?   Thank you!!

    Thanks un4gitabl! We went with the don't ask hope they don't care policy, and no-one minded. We had already paid for open bar so no one seemed to care. In fact, when they cleared the tables the bar held the bottles for us that no-one had grabbed. We purchased the bottles at duty free in the airport, there is a per person limit so we asked a few guest to pick one bottle each up for us, they were so happy when they saw them at dinner! As a few trusted friends and buy extra in case someone forgets, we managed to drink the extra!

    That is probably what we would do, hope they don't but deal with it at that time if they do :-)  Thank you again for posting!  I really think we may do this!!

    P.S. do you happen to remember the duty free limit?  I can look it up, but I thought I would ask :-)

      I don't, sorry. I think it's three bottles per person but that may be wrong.

          I think this looks great! very classic! My only thought is you don't need the ribbons on the lanterns...if you are going to illuminate them I think it will look great with them plain!...this will make the pink on the table stand out more too! or maybe lower them...I don't know. Just my random thinking. You did awesome! Hooray for your wedding in 3 weeks!
