Has anyone rented centerpieces from the resort? I dug back through this forum and found some people who did around 2012, but I feel like the prices have gone up so much since then that I'm wondering what the cost is now.  My mom made really awesome shell and mason jar centerpieces, but I think we decided that they're just too much of a pain to lug down, and that we're going to use them for the shower and at home receptions, so I'm trying to figure out options at the Jade. I'll probably use my bridesmaids bouquets on a few tables, but I'd like to stagger them with centerpieces from the resort.

 

The options in the guide are all a little underwhelming. Did anyone have one in person that they liked? I saw some past brides say that if you send them a picture of one you like they'll quote you on the price to recreate it...has anyone done that before?

We brought down our own center pieces, little jars with water beads and floating candles surrounded by starfish. The heaviest thing was the little jars and candles. For our decorations we bought $5 luggage from the second hand store and put all decorations in those and then just left the suitcases down there. That way we had a lot less to bring back home with us.

I'm looking at working with this girl that has a business delivering decorations items to the resorts.  She has a facebook page  https://www.facebook.com/loveandlacedecor/She has a bunch of items she packs in a suitcase and meets you at the hotel.  No outside vendor fees.  Prices don't seem too bad and saves on the hassle of packing items to take down there.

Do you happen to have a picture of your table? Something like that sounds perfect, starfish is sort of our "theme." And GREAT idea bringing down throw away luggage, I think I'll do that for some of my OOT bag stuff.

I actually spoke to her over a year ago and completely forgot about her!! Thanks for reminding me!

Nothing to elaborate, but it was set up very nice. They provided the dinner menu at everyone's place setting. Plus there was champagne at each spot and our specialty drink set up at everyone spot. It added to the décor.

Thanks so much for this!  The more pictures I see of how "real brides" have decorated their tables (as opposed to elaborate Pinterest-perfect brides), the more I realize I'm overthinking it and that it doesn't have to be as elaborate as I think it does.  This is simple and lovely. I think it's all about the candles and lighting.  thanks so much for sharing! :)
