I'm getting married at Dreams and am not yet decided on my decor, but I'm sure I'll be bringing some stuff with me, possibly shipping some too, but not sure yet.

For us this meant having no glass vases/hurricanes just because I couldn't travel with them. But I was able to bring candles and some rattan placemat thingies for the centerpieces.
Think about things that are light/small and easy to carry on: fabric, shells/starfish, paper bags for luminarias, tealights, small candles, anything made of straw/rattan, ribbon....etc.
Then think of things you can buy once you get there: produce (we used limes but the options are endless), flowers, sand (free!), pretty dishes/platters from shops in San Jose, pretty Mexican rugs....things like that.
If you end up using a coordinator (or if your hotel has one) then you should be able to get help on this part. I wouldn't plan too much of this until you have your venue chosen.

Many of the wedding coordinators have a ton of resources at their disposal, so you might find they can help you get what you want for pretty much how much it would cost you to buy it and transport it down there. Do you plan to have a WC? I am not, and so am at the mercy of my own creativity and what Dreams has on hand! However, if you look at the pics from Tammy (Host) who had her wedding at Dreams, she had minimal decor and it was gorgeous- I think that's the look I'll end up going for, understated elegance!

I need to rethink my centerpeices! Plus I bet fruit is a whole lot more affordable than flowers!

ali i guess you have to decide what type of decor you want...alot of times, the WC's will have it down there...OR some brides that are getting married at the same resort around the same time may want to consider sharing costs for lights, etc...

Other fruit that would be cute is lemons/oranges, pears/apples, maybe even red/orange bell peppers if that fits your color scheme? Or maybe a big pineapple or coconut (yummmm pina colada!) The great thing about Mexico is you can get away with really bright vivid colors!

We have decided to use our coordinator for the glass cylinder centerpeices and I will be bringing votives alreasy in glass holders. I think that each family member will pack a box since they get heavy. Other decor items that I will be bringing include:
- DIY packable arch
- Woven fans
- Tiny starfish
- Tiny shells
- Cake topper/cake knife
I really liked how the paper lanterns turned out so we may do that as well. We're going to try to pack as much as we can. I have heard mixed reviews about shipping.
