      Great! I am glad you can see the pictures because I can't for some reason!

      Yes so happy to finally see things coming together! I am a big list person but it seems like every time I cross something off the list 10 more things get added! I have not yet received a final quote from Pilar just yet. I still need to send her my finalized papers which are due soon! I am guessing she will provide that to me after.  At first I was thinking the same thing....the more the better! Until I realized how much more I will be paying but hey....it is only a once in a lifetime event and I am happy to have anyone who can make it! I believe it comes out to $66.78 per person (including 11% taxes and 15% service fee) after the 25 included in our divine package so we will be paying about 1,335.60 extra just for the reception if my math is correct! So you are right....it does add up! Although we are saving on the centerpieces we are still paying to upgrade to tiffany chairs an extra $10 per chair! Table cloths are $23 per table....

       

      Hope this helped a little!

            ChocoTaco7568 can you see it now? 

             

            uhaft AWESOME JOB!!! I'm curious to know how are you getting these vases to Mexico? How many tables are you having? I def want to do the centerpieces like that but I just never thought the vases would make it there. How are you packing everything?

             

            Thanks for sharing!! and Congrats

                  I have not completely figured out how I am packing these yet! I called the airline and they said I can bring vases in my carry on so I might do that. I would have to give one to each person to take with them. I will be bringing 5 of them. 1 for each table. I have also been saving bubble wrap from all the things I bought online! I was also thinking of buying those tight seal bags that you use a vacuum to suck all of the air out for our clothing to minimize luggage space in our suitcase!

                    For anyone who wanted to make their own centerpieces but didn't want to lug large vases down to Mexico....

                     

                    A few people have suggested buying the vases in Playa del Carmen.  There is a Walmart down there (actually I think there are two) and some other stores that could provide you with the materials you need.  I am not doing centerpieces but I am so intrigued I'll definitely stop by Walmart while I am out in Playa.  You never know what you might find!!!!

                     

                    I'll provide info when I get back for anyone whose is up for the challenge of making their centerpieces in Mexico!!!!  :)

                      I'm thinking of checking out Walmart as well.  Definitely let us know how it goes!  I am taking a site visit in June so I'm hoping to scope out whether or not I'll be able to DIY when I get there for the wedding.
