    This is my newest 'project'. I am so glad I read that someone got stuff from Ikea. I am from CO, where there is no Ikea, so I always kind of forget it exists! But I went to the site, and I'm going in a couple of weeks to get these!! I'll use the votives (only 49 cents each!) throughout, and the taller vases w/ water and floating candles (orange and pink, $1.99 each). With these vases, you can group them together to make a circle, wavy line, or just use them alone. That, mixed with some of the resorts bouquets I think will be great!

    Also note: the vases are available in a blue and purple variation as well, in case anyone is interested.

          these ideas are amazing, thank you! now i have to make some decisions!

          did anyone get married in mexico? i've heard it can be windy, my resort don't recommend candles.

          also, i heard you can't easily get hold of lemons in Mexico, as they have lemons, but they are the green kind (limes).

          my theme is lemon and navy, so i'm having a think. definitely want starfish involved too, as they were the theme of our invites etc :)

            I saw this online too & I think it looks great! just wondering, are you planning to bring everything with you? Most of the vases I've found have weighed a ton!

              I am finding that to be a problem too.. everything I want to bring either weighs a ton or is really fragile.
              I have decided on a tealight glass trio sitting on metal/silver charger plates with white table clothes and black table runners. Then if I can find it, hot pink (shiny) confetti around the charger plate.
              I will post a picture once I get it set up and figure out how!

                Here is what we are thinking...the pictures aren't the best but you will get the idea. Each frame will either have a picture of us at one of the places we lived (i was a travel RN so we traveled alot) or a quote about love from a famous movie

                    Also, I will surround them with bright pink flower petals to add some color before the sun goes down.
                    PVBride, I LOVE this idea with the greenery!

                      Ok stupid question, how do you get the flowers to sink? I have square glass vases and I want to do the drowning flowers. Any way to do this without using floating candles to hold them down? Thanks!
