So, even though I try to express to myself, a wedding is NOT about the centerpieces, the flowers, the color scheme, I still cannot allow myself to go with what's offered at the resort I will be having my wedding at. I am not a traditional "bride", I don't want sparkles, starfish, and pink flowers.
In the spirit of getting married in the beautiful country of Mexico, I am going with Mexico as my wedding theme.
I want maracas, I want tequila bottles for my vases, marigolds as my flowers (faux), a few dia de los muertos trinkets, mexican blankets as my table cloths and Virgin de Gaudelupe candles gaaaloooore!!!
My question to brides who have been married and have done purchasing south of the border for their decorations, would it make more sense to purchase most of these items when I get to PDC? Or do it before I leave in order to not have to worry about what I will find, and what I won't find?
I am collecting a few bottles here, since I am not a liquor drinker, as well as purchasing my flowers at michaels as time goes on. I am just unsure if I should wait to get to mexico for maracas, papel picado and other small things.
We are at 6 months away from our wedding, and I figure I should get a start on things, if I want to make them happen!!!
Any advice would be great! Thank you!
