@JenniferH114

Those sashes are a crazy good deal. Are you in the states? Shipping to canada ruins the great deal :(

Hi guys .. I need some advice! 

 

I am in LOVE with these tiffany chair decorations.

I have no idea though if they can be recreated to look like that. I am assuming that chiffon is ivory, not white - which I think looks better than a stark white. Have any of you seen any brides with this sort of chair design or DIY? Please let me know!!

Wow that's really pretty! I've never seen anything like that before. It almost looks like it's threaded through the chair as opposed to being attached to it. The other thing you have to remember is that you're not the one that will do the decorating - someone else will be so will they be able to reproduce it? If it's too complicated as well, will they charge you an arm and a leg to do it! Sorry - don't want to burst your bubble but I'm not sure it will be super easy to do!


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

    @TaraMarie33 the decor company should have these, ask your hotel coordinator to check with their vendor.

    it can be done ;)

     

    Happy Planning!

    They definately have the chairs at the GS. If you don't have the presidential package the chair would be an upgrade. I'd probably email Adriana a picture and see if 1. They have the right amount of fabric to do it and 2. The cost to do it

    My thoughts is you may have to purchase the fabric yourself as what they use for the chair bows seems much smaller. But until you ask I can't say Forsure.

    They are really beautiful and would look fabulous. Keep us posted.

    Hi guys!

    So they only have white Tiffany chairs at the resort - not champagne or gold. Adriana is looking into seeing if they can get them from external vendors... So we shall see.

    The archway I wanted is being quoted at about $800 CAD so I am not sure what I will decide on that yet.

    Does anyone have an extras price list ? They haven't sent me all that info yet because I guess t isn't close enough. I have less than 5 months, so I really need to start working out a budget and making some decisions!

    I think I am going to go with the free wedding and then upgrade - but I don't know how much all these upgrades are.

    I know the palapa upgrade is about $1000 - everything else is up in the air. Maybe the presidential package is more convenient? Ahh, I don't know!

    I asked you this before I think but what do you mean by archway? Do you want something different than what's included?

    I have the 2014 price list that will atleast give you an idea of what's extra and the potential cost. I'm sure it's went up some. Sooooo odd they wouldn't send it already. I got all the info when I booked my wedding. If you want me to send it over just msg me your email.

    Even with all my extras the presidential package would have been thousands more as it wasn't all inclusive. Had lots I didn't need and lots I wanted but didn't include.

    @TaraMarie33 I have the 2015 extras list if you are still needing it let me know! I am in the same boat as you, I chose the Presidential Package initially because every time I tried to work out a budget there just didn't seem to be that much savings, but now I am unsure if I made the right choice, there are some things in that package I don't really want or need but at the time it just seemed more convenient, now that our guest list is about 100 people the savings seem to matter a bit more to me. Honestly not sure what the best option is!

    I wanted to show you a bit of my inspiration and I have finally narrowed down a color scheme/palette. 

     

    My Colour Scheme: BLUSH, CHAMPAGNE, IVORY, with hints of BURGUNDY. 

     

    Similar to this: 

     

    bf388f5581aa18e7ae2d808dc240fa49.jpg

     

       

     

    CEREMONY: 

     

    Chairs - White Tiffany (60 of them, approx.) will have final numbers in October. (45 pesos each) - shown below. 

    white_tiffany_chair_hire-405x290.jpg

     

    Chair Covers - will bring with me, 60 chiffon sashes as shown below. *will need to be set up on tiffany chairs

    ** JUST ordered from aliexpress.com - $275 for 60 chiffon sashes. Will let you know how they turn out! 

     

    rBVaGVSs-pGABfxzAADRx59Ltnk813.jpg

     

    Aisle - White Runner (500 pesos) + flower petals. I have ordered and will bring rose petals with me. I would like them to be scattered on the white aisle runner. ** Ordered 5000 rose petals from alliexpress.com for only $40 CAD! 

    Aisle inspiration below - except with white runner underneath!

    Pomander balls - ** I will also be bringing pomander balls with ribbons just to be hung on the chairs. 1 hung at the end of each aisle. (havent ordered these yet) 

     

    Last update .. my bridesmaids dresses came in!! Take a look.. they are STUNNING. Picture is a little dark, but they are blush pink, Donna Morgan. Really light, and so beautiful on all of the girls. Even the ones with little boobs! 

     

    I also found those necklaces this week, they are blush and navy (the men are wearing navy) with hints of gold and silver. Perfect match! My maid of honour isnt in the picture, neither is my gay best friend - he will be wearing navy pants with a pink top to match the girls. 

     

    11900012_10153510366524014_5523304539423

     

    Thats all for now. Happy updates. xx
