All I plan on bringing as far as decorations for our ceremony are sheer colored fabric (otherwise the resort provided ones are just white) and some arrangement of fake flowers, all for the bamboo arch. Any other ideas on decorating our arch?

You can always use shells or big green leafs, but the fabric and the flowers should be sufficient if the arch isn't to big :) Less is more! Especially if the fabrics are colored ;)

I'm bringing down table runners, gold lanterns, tulle for the chairs, battery powered candles and battery powered tealights. :)

    I am hiring an event planner for my wedding. He assured me that my wedding is the most special day of my life.

        Answer: as little as I can! LOL  I'm getting married at the Blue Venado in Playa del Carmen, and they provide the basics (chairs, linens, etc.) so I'm going to go with those.  Given the location, I'm keeping my decor fairly simple, and relying on my vendors (florist, candle artist, DJ) to make it work.  I'm also trying to rent a few things from Mrs HK, one of our BDW alums who rents out wedding decor to brides in Riviera Maya.


        That said, I'm planning to bring down the following:

        1) Star lanterns (although my MOH is trying to source these for me from India and may be bringing them)

        2) LED lights for lanterns (if I don't end up using bulbs)

        3) Escort cards

        4) Frames for any signage needed

        5) String and clips to hang up pictures

        I am bringing Chair sashes, table runners, napkins, luminaries, card box, table numbers, place setting cards, seating chart, favours, cake decor. I think that's it for decor. Edited to add: battery powered tea lights, wishing cards, and signage for various things.

        Does anyone have a good website to purchase chair sashes?

        @cubanaboliviana I love the papel picado signs you have! did you make them yourself or source them from Etsy?

        I am thinking about incorporating these as well
