The braclet came from Ebay, can't remember the seller but I just typed in starfish bracelet and it came up.

Hello there just became a member and fascinated by your wedding, I get married next August at the Grand Sirenis and wondered if was possible to take some of my own things like decorations as I desire the beach and shell look more than flowers. Did you have to pay an extra charge for things that were your own? Also were they good at choosing the cake decor as the options I've been given to me are all hideous?? Also did they let you decorate the table for the a la carte evening meal? Kind regards Sophie xx

I did not have to pay anything extra for using my own decor. I dealt with Elizabeth and she was fantastic! I took her pictures of how I wanted my stuff displayed and she took care of everything. I did have to pay to have them hang my paper lanterns b/c of the staff involved and the time it took to get them up.  As for the cake I had kinda forgotten about that so when we had our meeting I just showed Elizabeth a couple pictures or what I would like and I thought they did a great job.  Take some ribbon with you in your colors so they can use it around the cake.

 

I didn't use an a la carte for my reception, we had the palapa which is private so they put out all my decorations how I wanted.  I'm not sure what you could do with the a la carte's.

 

You'll have a great time, I wish I could do it all over again!

These were so easy!  I had some PVC piping laying around so I had the hubby cut them into 3" lengths and then I cut burlap into 6" strips and hot glued the burlap around them.  Once the burlap set I wrapped the ribbon around using hot glue to keep it on and then added the starfish.  To get them to Mexico I packed them in bubble wrap and packed them in a plastic shoe box.  On the way home I wasn't as careful and many of the starfish fell off.

So I've got to know... Did you have any trouble getting sparklers into Mexico? I was going to do them but I saw somewhere they are technically explosives or something?! Not an convo I want to have at customs lol. Also, your use runner with shells, gorgeous. Where did you get such big starfish and do you recall the size of them?

    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
