    I think Shannonmarie is correct. I think it has to do with environmental issues. But I did see a realy neat DIY  petal runner on weddingbee.com that was beautiful as a remedy: tulle, glue and tons of petals. Definitely a labor of love, but it's an option.

      Wow - labour of love is right!  I wonder if they allow silk petals inside (table decor) since they won't blow away and litter the beach?

          I may be wrong on this but I too was pretty pumped on the freeze dried petal idea. However I read on some other boards that you are not supposed to bring them into the county due to them being "live" and most brides have gotten them taken I'm customs, especially with the sniffing dogs. I am still considering trying it though.... Anyone else heard anything about this?

            Could you buy freeze-dried petals in PDC maybe?   I am hoping to get some things in town once we're there, since the resort pricing for some add-ons are crazy...

            I've heard this too.. I think it's kinda hit or miss. Some people get them through, some don't. I think I'm still considering trying it as well.

              I was worried since everyone is talking about Pilar..I haven't heard anyone mention Deisy. I met with her, she is super nice. Just wanted to see if anyone had her plan the wedding.

              Was she with you all day of the wedding?

               

              No, she wasn't with me all day. She came to find me around 12 to let me know that we had to change the location of the reception but then I didn't see her again until right before the ceremony. She was setting everything up most of the day. She was there for the ceremony and then during the cocktail hour she was taking pictures of the reception set up and showing me. She was there the whole time through the reception though.

                To answer the rose petal question:

                 

                I brought a TON of fake petals with me (not freeze dried).  It is very windy and they just blow around (I was on the Pergola) but Deisy sprinked some right before I was ready to walk down the aisle.  They also put some on the Mix Bar set up for the cocktail reception and they used a bunch for the table settings for the actual reception inside.  So yes, they will use them...wherever you want!  :)

                I'm glad to see a few new brides on this thread!  I've added you to the bridal roll call.


                As for the beer that is served, they serve Corona (original only) and a Mexican beer (I forget which one, but it's not Sol or Dos Equis, which is odd to me)

                  Hi Ladies!

                   

                  We are just in the process of confirming our dates for March 2013 and I wanted to get your feedback on which day of the week would be the best. We are looking at either March 26th (Tues) or March 28th (Thurs) and each have pros/cons. We will be arriving Saturday-Saturday so the earlier date would be closer to the middle of the week, but I was thinking since Good Friday is early this year (Fri 29th) we may have people wouldn't have been able to take off a week who'd be able to take Thursday off and just come down for the wedding and the weekend. I don't know anyone who has said that taking the time off would be a big problem but I thought if people were strapped for cash it might make it easier for them to do a 3/4 day holiday and be at our wedding. Thoughts?
