Decor: Hurricanes or Cylinder Votives?

Recommended Posts

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 wink.gif


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.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
