Thank you so much for this info!! These pictures are amazing!!! I love the handing bottles its gorg! Did she do those for you as well? THe flowers you have hanging from the gazebo are those from Love and Lace ? or did the resort set this up for you ? I have NEVER seen this and Im so in love with it!

Thank you!! I really appreciate it! I LOVED the hanging bottles too. Katy did the hanging bottles. It was perfect! I still had to order my flowers from the hotel which were a FORTUNE!!! If I were to do it again, I would have considered buying silk flowers for my decorations. No one would have noticed because I've seen some really pretty ones! All flowers for my wedding were from the hotel so they did the flowers on the gazebo, the roses in the bottles, the babies breath in the mason jars that were on the aisle chairs and the flower petals on the runner. It was beautiful!

    @kellymenning OMG i saw those hanging bottles somewhere and love them! So did you rent those and the mason jars for the aisles from her too? I love that. I was wondering about the lights too. What resort did you get married at, because I think that my resort will charge to hang up the lights (like 500$) even if I get them cheaper. So you said you renting like pretty much everything from Katy? It sounds great. Do you mind me asking about how much everything cost to rent from her? I am totally stressing about everything I will have to bring down, it would be so nice to not have to worry about it probably. How much were the chair bows and did she just happen to have the color you wanted? I have emailed her and she sent me her drop box, but I am not sure how to go about deciding what to rent etc. There are so many, too many good ideas!! Thanks so much for your help.

    I did rent the mason jars for the aisles and the bottles for the gazebo. I rented everything from her except for flowers. She even rents out the gazebo sheers which is awesome. 

     

    I got married at the Azul Fives Hotel. They did charge me $5.00/person for a decorating fee for all of my decorations, and a $300 light fee because I had so many lights. I did a light wall too (see pic below). So with all of the decorations and lights, it was $800 total. I still saved a lot.

     

    I did rent basically everything from her. I included a list of everything I rented. The hotel wanted to charge me just $2000 for the lights so I saved so much money. Oh, the decorating fee also included my decorations for the rehearsal dinner and welcome cocktail party. I forgot to mention that. So the rentals below include decorations for all events. I put some more pics below so you can see what all we did. She even did my entire sweetheart table, welcome table, etc. Also keep in mind I had 100 people. 

     

    The chair bows were rented from her. I wanted my wedding to be an "elegant rustic" theme so I did the burlap. I don't know if she has bows in other colors. She might! And if she doesn't, she's really nice about offering to get things she doesn't have. She's great to work with. :) Hope this helps!

     

    So I rented... Mason Green Jars, Mismatched Bottles, Green/Blue Bottles, Gold Chargers, Burlap Runners, Rose Petal Cones, Bottle Backdrops, Hanging Mason Jars, Sandy Toes Bucket with paint brushes (to wipe sand off feet after pictures on beach), Welcome Sign, Parasols, Burlap Sashes, Portable Sound System, Vintage Suitcases, Black Lanterns, Wooden Crates, Sparklers, Gold Lanterns, White Lanterns, LED Tealights, Bombillos with brass buckets, LED Taper candles, Silver & Gold Mercury Glass Votives, Small Bottles, Medium Bottles, Large Bottles, Burlap Table Runners, Lace Table Runners, Burlap Sashes, Custom "The Mennings" Banner, Jelly beans (for favors), Thank You card for plates, White Votive Bags, Globe Bulb String Lighting, LED Pillar Candles, Paper Lanterns, LED Lights for Paper Lanterns, Christmas Lights for Light Wall, Christmas Lights for Wrapping around Poles, Lace for Light Wall. My grand total was $2900 (which includes transportation for them to get everything to me in town). 

     

    It was a GREAT deal! I rented a LOT because I wanted stuff everywhere. I'm a freak.

     

    Oh and for the pics below. The pics during the day time with the white cocktail tables were for our welcome cocktail party. The pics with the mint green jars were for the rehearsal dinner.

    I think it would be challenging to take the vases while traveling. Candles would be better option and safe as well. Good Luck!
