Hi everyone!

We are getting married at the Grand Sunset Princess in May 2017! We were considering bringing our centrepieces down with us (to save money since centrepieces are so expensive at the resort). We were thinking a simple mason jar with flowers? Not 100% sure yet.

I'm wondering if anyone waited until they were at the resort and go into the markets or Walmart to get centrepiece decor?

I'm just trying to decide if it would be easier to get it there or just check an extra suitcase and pack everything in there!

 

Thanks!!

Hola @@MrsMeis!

Congratulations for your wedding; Grand Sunset Princess is a great resort, you are going to love it and May is a good month for a wedding.
This forum was created to help you and being a local here in Cancun, Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya, i can tell you that you could find some mason jars anywhere and flowers here:

There is a walmart in downtown playa del carmen and other discount shopping. I cant tell you for certain if you will find all that you are looking for. I chanced some items to buy down in Mexico instead of bringing them and was disappointed in the limited selection I found. If you have time and money, try it, otherwise bring it OR I HIGHLY recommend renting decor/centierpieces from Love and Lace Wedding Decor...Katy is a woman down there who owns the company and rents out wedding items and decor at reasonable prices and makes the process easy. Here is a link to her facebook: https://www.facebook.com/loveandlacedecor/?fref=ts

 

and here is a link to her website    http://loveandrum.com/marry-me-katy-mikee-in-tulum/

 

I rented string lights from her, paper lanterns, glass cylinders for my centerpieces, and many other items. Check her out.

@@MrsMeis  So exciting you are getting married 10 days after us (:  I still haven't figured out my centrepieces either - but I think we will bring our own down. I am thinking something simple as well. We are adding the floral arrangements to our alter so I am planning on using those flowers for centre pieces and bringing some form of vase, bowl or mason jar to display them. I will be going Pintrest crazy in a few weeks to start figuring this all out. 

 

What days are you flying in?

    • I’m sorry but I just noticed this original post was from a few years ago. 
    • Hi girl, I was in the the exact same situation as you. I’ was a second timer too,  at the time my daughter was 16 when we had our DW. He also had a daughter from a previous marriage who was 28 at the time with a 3 year old son who we’re residing with us. His daughter was in no financial shape whatsoever to pay her way to Fiji. My husband said it meant so much to him for her to be there. We argued for months about us funding her way to go with us. I felt like the evil step mother too but put my foot down. It almost got to the point that we were just not going to go but finally my fi gave in and said we would  not pay for her. Talk about stress! We went with my daughter and a few friends and got married. I could see the sadness in my husbands eyes during the ceremony.It all hit me right there. He wanted his daughter there so bad that it crushed him. In fact none of his family were there and the friends I mentioned were all my friends. I thought to myself, why did I do this to this wonderful man who is so good to me and my daughter. He rarely asked for things for himself. I felt awful. He did his best to hide it from me. It’s the biggest regret of my life girl. He never got over that his daughter was not there and it destroyed me. I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I allowed $3,500 that we easily could afford, ruin what I wanted to be the happiest day of his life. If you can afford it pay for it, do it. It’s not worth the pain.It was  not worth doing that to him just to prove a point. This was 17 years ago and it bothered him for the rest of his life. He passed away last October and I still cannot forgive myself. That’s my two cents - Shel  
    • Hi everyone! Newbie here. I've been trying to search for templates for passport invitations. I saw a couple on Etsy but not many options. I was wondering if anybody knew of any other sites that have printable templates for passport invitations? Thanks in advance!
