    Very nice! Where are you getting your lanterns from? Are you bringing them down? I had considered this - but I'm bring SO much stuff down already - I figured the lanterns would be too big and heavy in the suitcases

      I got the lanterns from z galleries online and I am bringing them down with me. I have a lot of stuff to bring down also. he lanterns aren't too heavy they are pretty big though 18" tall. So i may have my sister of FMIL bring them down. A couple of my bridesmaids also offered to bring stuff down for me.

          Loving this arrangement.  what kind of flowers are those?  The back of my dress has this kind of flower.  I am thinking about carrying this as a bouquet. :-) but dont know the kind of flower.

            Hey Ladies, wow what a great thread, I just spent an hour looking through it! I was also thinking about using table laterns, but I'm not sure if I want to deal with the hassel of packing them in my luggage! Below is a picture of my inspiration (although I would paint them white). These candle holders also come with LED candles, which is a must because our reception is going to be outdoors in Mexico which can be very windy!

                I've switched up my centerpieces... and added the frame which will hold my table numbers. I thought the single rose in the bud vase wasnt enough and multiple vases seemed overwhelming. Behind the frame with the table number will be a frame with a picture of my late grandparents. I really wanted to incorporate them into the wedding somehow since they pretty much raised me. Just not sure how i want to arrange them on the table yet.

                  what about getting a double frame so that the table number would be to one side of a photo of (you and?) your grandparents?

                   

                  also, with a smaller collection of flowers, have you checked with a local florist on pricing? I wouldn't think it'd be too expensive, depending on the number of tables. I hear a lot of good things about Marvin @ Maya Diseno.

                      The resort's floral center pieces can be expensive so it's not a bad idea to bring something from home.  I am swaying toward candles and crystals.
