    Hi everyone. I am actually down here in Cabo for my wedding 11/11 and meant to post this before I left, but ran out of time.

    I had my coordinator buy about 17 candle hurricanes (she says they are about 12 inches tall and 6 inches in diameter). We bought large 6 inch candles at IKEA (in pink and orange). We plan on filling them slightly with sand and placing the candle in them. Very simple decor. We also made brown runners that I think are about 2 ft by 10 ft for rectangular tables.

    I have never seen the hurricanes in person, but since we don't really want to travel back with them I wanted to see if someone here or on the Yahoo! board wanted to use them. For some reason, I just noticed I am no longer a member of the Yahoo board. I am looking into that, but in the meantime...

    I planned on using 2 hurricanes on each table, but will send a pic out after the wedding to show what they look like - could be sparse. Perhaps one of you that is also using Maye Cortinas would want to use them? I can perhaps have her keep them for you. I can even leave the candles if they work for you. I think she is charging me $12 each for the hurricane votives. So, perhaps we could split the cost or even some nominal fee? My mom wanted to haul those runners back and make shoe travel bags, but I can convince her otherwise

    Again, I wanted to post on the yahoo board but can't...so pass this along if you want!

      Gosh, I wish the Sheraton would store them for me (I'd gladly pay for at least half the cost), but my wedding is not until June 23rd at the Sheraton. (and I'm not using a coordinator)...hmm...The hurricanes are exactly what I have in mind. I've been trying to figure out how to either buy them here and get them to Cabo or buy them there.

      I know you're probably really busy down there and it's a long shot, but if you want to ask Irma if she could store them until June and she agrees, I'll send you a check! :)

      Good luck with your wedding! I hope it is just as you imagined it! Congratulations!!

      By the way, please be sure to post pictures of everything and a review!

        I'm interested! In both the runners and the hurricanes: questions are the hurricanes canddle or glass?

        How can I contact you? My coordinator can go and pick up in Cabo. My colors are brown and red. so brown runners work for me.
