Sounds very similar to us..we have about 20-25 that I'm sure will be there. So I don't have to do many invites or anything which is nice. I can pay more attention to details that way because we don't have to do everything in massive quantities.  We are going to do an AHR thought, which, I personally could do without, but his parents are really pushing it and it's their money at that point, so it's ok.

we were going to do a AHR but decided not to.  I figured that if it is that important to who ever they will be there.

Hello November 2014 brides! Congrats on your upcoming weddings! You're all getting a nice head start on your planning. :) This post is for any brides interested in affordable unique decor for your big day. I know decor decisions may be far off in the distance right now, but it's never too early to start thinking about it! :)

 

I'm a newlywed from Vancouver, Canada that lives down here in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. I have quite a few decor items leftover from our wedding in May, mostly in a rustic vintage style. I've decided to rent things out to brides that don't want to lug things like vases & mason jars down here to Mexico, and have priced things quite fairly compared to the resorts' prices.

 

I have a lots of different types of bottles, mason jars, vases and lanterns, as well as a variety of other items like wooden signs & frames, table runners, rustic birdcages, string lighting and even a portable sound system. A lot of these items are very hard to find down here, and many brides have been happy to find my collection of wedding decor.

 

If you want a Style Me Pretty or Ruffled type of wedding in Mexico without a huge price tag, I'm your gal! So far no one has had to pay an outside vendor fee at all, as they tell their WC that they have brought the decor themselves. I'm also always interested in buying items that brides bring down and would like to sell after their weddings, please send me photos of anything you'd like to sell!

If you'd like to see some photos and a price list, please send me a PM with your email address and I'll send you all the info. Also if anyone has any questions about the area, ask away! I've lived in Playa Del Carmen for two years and know the whole coast quite well. Happy planning ladies!

 

Here's a couple of photos of some items we used in our wedding and that are for rent, but I have lots more:

@@ylan9383 Yay! Everything is so much exciting after you actually get a date booked! That was a mess for us because all the dates we wanted were taken and we had to have a friday just simply because of vacation schedules for my fiancé.

heyyy!! How was your site visit??

 

So sorry! I haven't been paying attention to this thread lately. It was AMAZING. I cannot believe the service we received. The staff stopped any time a guest walked by and put their hand on their hearts. They would carry our plate back from the buffet and always pull my chair out. The food was the best I've had at an AI. The beach was iffy, but the pool was amazing and made up for it. We are SO excited. We have learned how important an onsite visit is though. We were able to taste test our food and realized our original ceremony and reception site was not what we liked, so we changed it to a gazebo instead of the beach.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
