    Well the flowers are all tissue paper so we will makeall the flowers here and then fluff them when we get there. I have enough people to help so it won't take long. The foam rings will be distributed amongst my guests. I might go with the paper lantern that is posted on this thread or I will use the metal ones and transport the flowers. Use your friends and family, if you ask each person to bring one or two things they won't mind.

        Hi Ladies

        This is what I am thinking of going with. Ignore the flowers and ribbonin the top   (they're from a wedding in the 90's that I was in lol) as we will be using real ones from the resort and may switch out the white rocks with sand or water beads colored blue. Any advice on which option would be much appreciated. They look nice with the candles lit in dim lighting too! :)

          I LOVE IT!!!!  I just bought some blue water pearls to try out myself so I'm biased to them haha....but it looks great already.  Thanks for the ideas....I am definitely going that route.

           

          How do u like the acrylic ice??  I love the way it looks.  I found it on a few sites.  Where did u end up buying urs??

            Thanks!

             

            I bought the acryllic ice off another bride and some at the dollorama store up here in canada. I am going to buy some fresh flowers and try them in the vase with the blue water pearls also cause I think that option is what will end up looking best with flowers rather than rocks or sand (would need the little water tube things for the stem of the flowers if I went that route). I think the rocks look better with bamboo stick which I may use for my AHR instead of fresh flowers but since I am paying for them in mexico I want to get double use out of them lol :)

              Well in addition to your sashes and runners I just might have to take everything u have off your hands after your wedding LOL!!  I can't wait to see your wedding photos.  Looks like we will have very similar decorations.

                    sorry, I don't I just found this on a site. I believe oriental trading has something like it. I will keep my eyes open and let you know if I come up with anything

                      Most importantly, these are made of paper that is light and can be folded up for travel. I will also have the maracas. I don't want too much more or I think it will look too busy.


                      Where did you get the lantern?  I love these!
