I have been poking around the forums for a while now but thought it was time to post- finally! My Fiance and I are getting married at Privilege Aluxes on Isla on July 13th of this year. We are doing a civil legal ceremony just with our 4 witnesses traveling with us, and that is all being handled by the coordinator at PA. However we felt they were charging a bit much for some things I would rather do myself so we got those excluded out of our package and are now looking for someone local on the Island instead. I am hoping someone can offer some recommendations for us in the categories below, thanks!!
We need to find the following:
-flowers/flower market (I will be doing my own bouquet & his bouttionere the day of- I like playing with flowers!)
-cupcakes (probably only need a dozen- we're adventurous eaters so the less plain jane the better!)
-Champagne (we're not picky, I enjoy Cooks but it has to be a Brut, I can't stand the sweet stuff- we'd like to gift our guests/witnesses a bottle when they arrive)
-Hair/Makeup for bride (I haven't decided yet if I am doing it myself or not- I've looked at the Make me Beautiful website but it seems to be very natural & light makeup)
Also- we are giving our 4 witnesses/guests a giftbag on arrival, is there anything you really wished you had on Isla? We are including a mapchick map, welcome note, a few postcards, waterbottle/bubbakeg, champagne, waterguns, small first aid/hangover kit, & biodegradable sunscreen for snorkeling....
After the wedding & honeymoon we are flying to our families home state for a home reception- fiesta themed BBQ! I'm wondering if there were any souvenir type things on the island that might make good decorations, centerpieces, and/or gifts?
