    Oh ok. That does suck that the centerpieces are not included. Has Pilar given anyone a quote for the Divine centerpieces from the wedding guide? If I go with an outside florist what will the resort charge for the florist to come in?

        Regarding the flowers. I have the Divine package. Are the premium centerpieces included in that package? If so, How many centerpieces are included?

        You get one centerpiece but also the medalians (or whatever they are called) that you get for the ceremony can be centerpieces after the ceremony. We had one long table at our reception so we ended up with 3 arrangements on the table and that was all included in the package.

        I know! I'm having the same dilemma! Did she quote you $60 as well? If so, is that JUST for the empty vases? I too thought about the Wal-Mart in Cancun, but I honestly don't want to be bothered with any of that when I get there! I'm only getting there 2 days ahead of time and I just want to relax :) I guess we'll have to figure something out!

          I haven't asked to get a quote, I just went off of what other girls said. Haha.  I guess I should find out for sure before I make my decision. :)  I don't want to deal with buying stuff for the reception when I get down there either.   The only other option that I haven't completely discarded is to ship them directly to the resort.  I think you are supposed to ship them like six months in advance or something like that to make sure they get there since customs can take quite some time.  Funny how something so small can cause such grief, right?  Haha.  I will keep you posted on what I find out and any other ideas I have for getting the things down there. :)

            I will gladly pay 60 dollars to rent vases and not have to bring them as a carry on!! I will already have my dress to worry about so definitely don't need anything else to "care for" on the plane and during travel to and from airports!

              Hi Lauren, the wedding day guest pass is $55, but keep in mind that 80% of your guests need to stay at the Resort. Regarding your budget, your best bet is it get an itemized list and send it to Pilar for pricing.  If you want to know the total cost you're going to incur then this is the only way to do it.  Unfortunately the cost for every item/option hasn't been published by the resort and while this forum is a great place to get a rough idea, you will not be able to hold the resort accountable based on pricing you see in these threads.  There are many set-up fees and concessions that have been waived or swaped at the discretion of the resort. I'm sure there are many variables that play into this that we may not have insight on.  If Pilar quotes you a higher rate than what you have seen based on posts in this thread, then i would take it at face value and be pleasantly surprised if the cost don't show up or get discounted on your final invoice.


              Thanks, Why do 80% of our guests need to stay at the resort? I hope they do, but some of them are talking about using their timeshares nearby. I never heard of the 80% thing?

              Is it $60 per vase? And is it just for the empty vase, with nothing in it? That's what I'm confused about. I would like to have 3 vases per table. If it is in fact $60 per vase, that's $180 per table, if you have 5 tables, that's $900 for just vases.. That can't be right, can it?? LOL...

               

              Here's what I'd like to do for centerpieces... Something like this: But I don't see how they could possible charge $180 for this... Does anyone have any idea how much something like this would cost from the resort?

              I am not sure of the reasoning for this but if I recall correctly, most of the resorts have this policy.

                I'm bringing the fillers with me - the submersible lights, clear rocks/beads/whatever they are, silk/real touch, etc. - so all I have to do is rent the empty vases.  I hope it isn't $60/vase.  If so, I will have to rethink my options.. but they cannot possibly be that expensive per vase.   My guess is that they give you a set amount for the $60, whatever they may be.
