Thank you all for the beautiful centerpiece ideas! I really like the ideas in the below pics but unsure how to tie it all together. For those using candels will you use real or flameless? Dazeydawl thanks for the great hint the linen website. Love it.

Thank you for the ideas girls.  I found some colored maracas at oriental trading and a few other sites, but I'm being a picky bride wanting them to be just their natural wood color.  

 

Danak71- do you know if the flea market has those and where is it in Cancun?

maracas will defintiely be easy to come by once in mexico, but chances are, they will all be painted.

So, long story short, I like the idea of one bigger gift. 

 

If you don't mind me asking, what company are you going with for the catamaran and appx. how much did you get quoted? You can pm me if you want too. I just got a quote from Amstar and it was insane! Like appx. 100 a person depending on option? This is way out of our budget, I am hoping I can find something not so crazy expensive, let me know, thanks! :)

We are doing one through Island Routes - the boat fits 100 and the cost is $2,900 plus transportation costs per person.. I am not sure how it breaks down per person, we have about 60 people booked so far and are expecting under 90?  We are treating our guests so it was important to have the entire catamaran to ourselves.

We're using Induna Charters. We booked a private catamaran excursion as a gift to our guests. He's charging us $1500 for the first 25 people and $35 for each additional person. So far we have 60 people booked and are expecting no more than 70. The boat fits 100 people. He's taking us to areas for snorkeling and swimming and then to Isla Mujeres (Island of Women) where we can go shopping, sightseeing and/or lie on the beach.

 

The rate includes lunch onboard the catamaran as well as rum punch, beer and soft drinks. There's a marina within walking distance of my resort and he's picking us up from there so we won't have any additional transportation costs. All the other companies I contacted were going to charge us a transportation fee ($15-$17 per person) to have a bus pick us up from our resort and bring us to a different marina. They weren't willing to pick us up from the marina right near us!

Thanks! Fortunately because we booked a group rate we're getting a ton of amenities due to the size of our group. One of them is one free room for every 10 rooms booked. Instead of just giving you a "free room", they actually give this amount back to you as a credit. Because of the # of rooms we have booked we'll get the amount of 3 rooms for 3 nights credited back to us (minus taxes and fees of course). But since the reason we're getting this money at all is because of our families and friends supporting us, we decided to just take it and spend it on them. I think it should be a lot of fun!
