lol you just edit the info in your profile... i know its soo exciting! I cant believe you already have so many people confirmed thats great! It sucks how expensive everything is though like extra per person... Did you hire an outside photographer or youre using the resorts? and do you have a decor idea yet?

There i did it yay! haha! I cant believe we have so many people booked already either, it is such a surprise we are so overwhelmed and happy! We are just going to use the resort photographer. As for decor ideas i have NO idea. I want simple and beachy haha but i am struggling with all of those details. What about you?!

yeah im not sure either... I am not crafty at all so making my own stuff isnt really going to work to well lol and i dont want to bring soo much stuff with me i want to use as much as the resorts stuff as possible but their centerpeices are insane! im going to bring with me chair bows. table runner and some colored napkins to break up all the white linen they give you. Im going to end up just using thier centerpeices though im pretty sure.. are you doing favors or do you have any ideas on wedding favors?

I am in the same boat! I really dont want to be taking a bunch of stuff down with me. I will probably end up using the centrepeices as well...:S I dont think i am going to have chair bows as I want the Pergola to look like the picture that I posted. I dont know what to do for the tables....i might bring down some burlap (i think thats what its called) as table runners maybe...keep it natural! I am going to do welcome bags that I will have dropped in everyone's room with their luggage with some goodies in there. I am also going to have fans on the chairs along with the program! So far i do not have any favors for the dinner....but I think my welcome bag will be good enough as a "favor" thoughts? I am also looking for ideas for the "welcome" table if you will at the reception...I want to do a group photo on one of the first few days that we are there and have the guests sign that instead of doing a guest book. Then we can have it framed in our living room! I also need cute table assignment things lol!

Hey guys,  a few days ago I contacted Maya Floral to check out their prices on centerpieces. This is the response I got in case anyone is thinking of using an outside resource:   "Our centerpieces with local flowers start at $65.00 usd. The flowers we consider as local flowers because they are very easy to get in Mexico are: Roses, Alstroemerias, Snapdragon, Lisianthus, Asian Lilies, Mums, Gerbera daisy, Chrysantemun and some others. We do not have centerpieces (unless they are cocktail centerpieces) under this price, our average priced centerpieces are $75.00 / $80.00 usd, centerpieces that include fine flowers like Orchids, Tulips, etc, start at $85.00 usd    Kindest regards"     Not too bad, but I still cringe at the thought of dropping all that money on flowers.....

WOW that isnt bad compared to the $350 per centerpiece from the resort. & yes i totally understand not wanting to spend so much on something like flowers... As of now I am thinking I will bring some type of DIY centerpeices and possibly rent vases from the resort (I read somewhere on here where i girl did this) just so I won't have to bring all those vases with me... maybe an option you may want to consider. Request pics I would love to see what they can do!!!

I'm kind of surprised at these prices. Centerpieces at the resort start at $65 for the tropical ones and go to $85 for the Divine. Someone said they are $350 for centerpieces which I believe is incorrect.
