    I have seen several questions as to how the decorations will be transported to the wedding but maybe skipped the pages where this was answered.  Are you bringing them with you or are you sending them to the resort in advance?  If shipping then how much will it cost and if bringing with you, are you packing a separate box/bag and checking it?

     

    Thanks everyone!

     

     

    Brenners:

     

    You are right about the tall vases! I will keep that in mind for mine! The fantastic thing is that my WC suggested recycling my ceremony bouquet and my BM´s  flowers to be used as decoration or even centerpieces for the cocktail and dinner party, thus reducing my flower budget significantly!

      Nan that is a good idea.  I also like that your WC is trying to help you find ways to reduce costs.  That is a TRUE sign of a good WC who is looking out for your best interests!  That is great!

        Hi!

         

        Thanks Kitty25967!  We will be ordering these flowers with the vases from our resort. I don't think the vase will be the same but it will be similar (I hope). :)  We will be using real flowers for this. 

         

         

        EVERYONE:  Do you think it will be hard to see people across the table with these vases?

         

        Do you know where in Cancun there is a good place to buy vases?  We want to bring the flowers back to our room after the reception and need to buy vases because our resort does not allow us to take the vases. 

         

        Do you know what kind of orcids are in this arrangement?

         

        THANK YOU!!!

            Well, after many weeks spent working on centerpieces.....and buying/returning flowers etc, my mom has finally convinced my just to go with real flowers and let the resort handle it.  She said she will help me with the extra costs. Yay!  This takes a huge weight off my shoulders with packing and planning!  I am still taking my own table runners and probably some candles (though they will probably be pointless in the long run since we have an open air type dining and they prob won't stay lite).  I am also printing my own menu cards, table numbers, and placecards.

              Kitty25967,

                        You could always do LED flickering candles. I'm planning to do these, wrapped in luminaries as part of my centerpieces. They will stay lit :)

                Melfaybik, from the pictures they look narrow enough that they should not be a problem.  The wedding I attended had wide vases and the greens were overhanging which led to the problem with seeing and speaking to anyone else around the table.

                      Hey Guys!  I just used an amazing centerpiece for my shower.

                      I used Conch Shells with fresh flowers for centeripiece.
