@Tlseege  I'm 9 months out, trying to picture things and see what I need to start getting together.  

 

Sorry if you've already mentioned this, this thread is massive lol - I know you mentioned you brought your own fabric for the ceremony decor, did you bring your own centrepieces or any other decor I should start looking out for?

 

Thanks!

I brought table runners that matched my ceremony fabric.  I also brought along votive candles (only thing I regret about my wedding.  We had the outdoor dinner and dance, so the candles didn't stay lit in the wind.  HUGE waste of money and suitcase weight!).  Besides that I purchased ceremony flowers and centerpieces.  

I didn't want to bring too much with me and rather have the beauty of the resort be the centerpiece.  Since I had a poolside reception it's lit really cute and the pool is lit so that adds extra visual appeal.

Does the hotel rent out fabric for the chairs/ decoration at the wedding ceremony or do I have to bring it with me?xx

I just read on a Facebook group that some resorts require a copy of a marriage certificate for a symbolic wedding. I've never heard of this and I'm 3 months out and kinda panicking. Does this resort require anything ?!

No, they don't require that for a symbolic.  Or at least have never in the past.

    Hi again, I received a wedding wish list today from the hotel and noticed it said that it costs $450 dollars to make the pool reception area private? Has any one else has to pay that as well as the drinks per hour? And if so is making the pool reception area private optional or compulsory?
    Thanks Ladies

    @Scarlett123 I've never heard of this and I'm 3 months away. Maybe it's something new they've added. I'm not paying it either way! They've never mentioned it to me and it doesn't say anything on my wedding wishes
    @Scarlett123 what do you mean your wedding wish list? And when is your wedding?

    @nicolesal Have you heard from your coordinator yet? Who were you assigned? I haven't heard from Paulina yet.
