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!

Valerie, I like the first picture..... They are really cute.. How do you plan on setting up your tables?

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.

Ok, I can stop obsessing about the starfish now
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!
