    I think those Tiffany chairs are $7 each (it's the plain white ones included in the package), and the big centerpieces near the aisle are $350 each. Not sure about the decorations on the pergola. Again, someone else might be able to correct me!

    The chairs are $7 each plus tax, like others have said, the large flower arrangement at the start of the aisle are around $350 each. I'm getting the divine package as well and plan on using the included bridal bouquet and table arrangement as my two flower arrangements on the pergola (i'm bringing a faux bouquet from home). The white fabric is included. 

     

    Just to keep in mind: I contacted an outside florist (maya floral)  today to hopefully get some flower quotes (centerpieces and aisle markers). From what i've read in reviews, they're very good at crafting something for you that's within your budget.  If you have someone meet the florist outside of the resort, you don't have to pay a vendor fee. I'll let you know :)

        Thank you! We so far have 30 people (including us) that have paid deposits but about 6 -10 more that are booking separately, so I am expecting about 40 in total. Which is a bit more than we anticipated but that's okay! We are not that organized yet as the booking came as a bit of a surprise, we were originally planning on April but got a fantastic deal for January that we couldn't refuse so we jumped on it! We basically have only sent out our invites and collected deposits and reserved our wedding day. What about you? Are you planning on bringing a photography, using resort or finding one there??? Kari

            Wow, 30 people booked already, that's awesome!! When did you send out your invites? Did you give people a RSVP deadline?  We just sent our STDs out last week, and our website with booking information just got launched today. I ended up booking an outside photographer (Sascha Gluck) for our wedding day, and i'm planning to use the package photographer for our rehearsal dinner. 

             

            I guess the thing i'm hung up on right now is flowers. I'm planning to use the included bridal bouquet and centerpiece as arrangements on the pergola, and I plan on getting bouquets for myself and my BMs on etsy. But my-oh-my the price on the resort centerpieces are outrageous!! I emailed an outside florist today to hopefully get some quotes. I've read through here that you don't have to pay a vendor fee if someone meets them outside the resort to pick them up (that's what the GMs are for ;) ) I tried to pull a few DIY arrangements together, but the though of lugging that stuff down with me is daunting. Here's the link for the one's that I put together the other day, they didn't really get any comments so i'm guessing they're a "no-go" lol. What are your plans for flowers, and what's your color scheme?

              Have a great wedding Allison!  Hope your day is beautiful! We don't arrive until after your wedding, but maybe see you around the resort later in the week :)
