@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 


The papel picado with names on them costs a lot of money, so we got some wedding papel from Amols and then got just the small flags for centerpieces with our names. I made the table numbers with the date and now I have to print out engagement pictures to put in them.

I am hoping to bring as little as possible! A Collin Cowie Wedding should cover most of it with a few personal touches!!

How did it go bringing everything down? Any trouble? I am bringing about the same amount as you to another resort in Mayan R.

I have confidence that the hotel decorations will be beautiful based on the package we chose. I'm taking a few things to add a personalized touch. They have our names & date on them. We're trying to pack light with decoration things because the items for OOT bags will take up a lot of space and I don't want to travel back home with all those decorations.

Besides, we still have to decorate for our AHR.

I know that my resort charges a fee for this- <_<


The charge for this and using outside vendors is 150- Depending on what you are bringing, and what the vendor is offering, it may save some money though  :D 


So far I've been getting everything approved to bring with me, and then printing out all of my e-mails so they can't hold it against me later...

    My wedding is on the beach in Negril, so I'm only bringing colored sand and vases for my sand ceremony. For the reception, my resort is only providing linens, so I'm bringing tealights and holders, crystal confetti, potpourri in my wedding colors to sprinkle on the tables, and vases with artificial flowers. The reception is on the veranda, so I wanted things that might not be blown around.

    My wedding is in 2015, I was planning on bringing , fabric for the ceremony location in my wedding colour, Mrs and Mr chair signs, sign for flower girl to hold walking down the isle, ring bearer box, palm tree guest book, cake topper and some flowers for the cake, some shells and beads for tables in wedding colour, mint napkins and some straws for the bar, and a sign to put in the sand at ceremony location. I would really like to personalize it more to us. Everything is so expensive when you don't have time to be creative.

    55 guests booked plus bride and groom :)
