Ugh- I wish our wedding planner had given us that same advice!! When Fiance and I went to ship all the things we bought for decorations it was going to be almost $1500…and we didn’t buy that much!

Obviously given my situation I can’t be much help but if I had to choose over, I would suggest buying as much stuff on the island as possible. For favors, give something edible that is special to Jamaica. Or do the same for centerpieces.

Paper Lanterns are a good idea, maybe tablecloths in your colors (packable and although subtle will be more festive than plain white), paper fans (I got these super cheap from Oriental Trading and they are totally mobile and great for guests to cool themselves off with at the wedding).

 

Good Luck 🙂

you could also make cute little flags out of paper or fabric and string them in a garland to hang around!

i agree with soontobewalsh too – buy as much as you can there! It helps a lot!
