I'm definitely going to do the starfish and candle and maybe shells on the tables - you could always sprinkle a little sand with the shells and starfish and put a big candle in the middle? I was going to do rosepetals and candles or lemon/limes as my centerpieces but the sparkle on my dress kind of looks like shells, so i want to incorporate the shell / beachy look. I'll try to come up with an idea and post the pic. thanks for the link on the starfish for sale!

I also found this link: Caribbean Imports seashells, starfish, sanddollars, capiz shell, bulk wholesale

These are cute too: Starfish Tealight Candles

Here's an example of the candle/sand/starfish idea -

We are having long banquet tables, and each will vary in decorations - I don't like anything to be the same! :)

I'm going to do variations of this candle centerpiece with different vases and candle sizes, but don't know where to get the bowls yet. Any thoughts?

We also have kitchen floor tiles in white, and are going to put sand and shells on them as well. I have a bunch of tealights and holders I thought that I'd put around them in some sort of fassion.

These are my favors. I am going to group them between the candle centerpieces. I have the pails in white.

That's all I've determined just yet. Remember, we are doing these for the at home reception, not the one in Mexico.

Do they have dollar stores near you? You might be able to find those bowls there. Or check your local craft store. I'd like to do the glass center pieces but I don't want to bring them to Cabo with me. So I'm working around what De Cortez already has..

I agree, I'm trying to limit the amount of stuff we have to travel with, especially items that can get broken. I'm going for the simple, minimalistic look!

Karla and I shared starfish. They looked great.

 

Maye told me that there is a store in Cabo that sells them at a reasonable price (we were short a few). Sorry, I don't know the name of hte place, but if you are using Maye, you can definitely get them there. You might need to call them in advance if you need a ton of them.

Oh good... so you were able to get the extra starfish!!

Ok, I can stop obsessing about the starfish now smile35.gif

Before Natasha and I decided to share the starfish I had considered spray painting 1/2 them in metallic silver or gold paint and mixing that up with the white starfish. I saw something similar to this in ZGallerie, but then I figured that would be just one more project for me to do.
So that's another idea!

TammyM - can you ask Maye what the store is that sells the starfish in Cabo? (I don't have Maye's contact info). I'll be there over New Yrs and for my site visit and can go take a look.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
