    Ginnybride - We had a smaller group so I went with the long table. As you can see in the pic, the place settings have alot of pieces! So with your centerpiece ideas, just keep in mind clutter. For the linens, I brought my own sashes, table runners, overlays, napkins, and napkin rings. Then I bought the giant starfish at Kohls (wrapped them in bubble wrap), much prettier in person, they have glitter on them but you can't tell in the photo, (it was dark by the time the reception started) brought a large bag of sea shells, bag of crushed shells, small starfish, and led tea lights. The WC put out the round vases, filled with sand, seashells and the LED lights, and also the little white lanterns. Originaly, when I was planning, I was stressing over centerpieces, buying them through the resort was pricey, and when I realized how much I was going to have to pack and hope made it there safely, I decided to go more simple. But I was really happy with how it turned out!


    Thanks Cricket!  Thats very helpful!  I was considering taking an extra bag, but I havent decided on exactly what Im going to include in them yet, so that may determine how easy it will be to fit in a suitcase.  What all did you put i yours?  Does anyone else have ideas or suggestions??  And what about the actual bags used for the OOT?  I havent found any I like or that are affordable and decent quality just yet.

     

    Cricket do you have pics of your table decor?  That seems hard to squeeze in suitcases as well, but I was going to bring my own chair bows, tablecloths, etc.... not sure if i can fit centerpieces too!  But based on what they charge, I may need to!

                  All my linens I bought from www.weddinglinensdirect.com. If you are interested in any of my reception table stuff, check out my classifieds!

                  Himatsu Beach was perfect! It is smaller and more secluded, so you have more privacy. The asian restaurant "Himatsu" is very close, and if they are busy, you do tend to have people watching that are sitting at the bar waiting to be seated. But, it didn't bother me at all! And the sun sets on that side of the resort!

                   

                  They have all different size vases you can use in the wedding dept at dreams. I was afraid of bringing them down in a suitcase and breaking, so I emailed ahead of time to see what they had & if it was ok to use. We asked for the small ones, but she did say they have small, medium, large and extra large and plenty of them.

                   

                  We had so much fun! I want to plan another wedding!!! We decided we want to renew our vows in 5 years so we can have another "wedding"!

                    I would suggest finding out the dimensions of the posts - looks like 10ftx15ftx10ft - and just buy your material from JoAnn fabrics? You can have them cut it so its like 1ft wide. And I would say crystal organza....

We are having our ceremony on the beach and would like to add some more color to our canopy but am not sure how much to order and bring. I have seen some gorgeous photos of weddings were brides have brought some different colors that incorporate there wedding colors on it.
