Dreams Votive Question

Recommended Posts

All the Cabo Dreams ladies -

 

I am looking at votives, trying to decide if I want to bring them down or use what they have there. Are any of you/have you used votives as part of your decor? If so, how many are you using? The ones I'm looking at are $40 for 72 red votives. I don't know if it what route will be cheaper and I don't know how many I'll need.

Well as of right now I'm bringing down 72 votives with candles in them already packaged. got at michaels. plus 70 votives for place cards as well! and probably going to bring some more down! I have no idea what the prices are down there! I might email mariana and see.

Kate - I am also undecided about this. I need votives for my luminarias and already have so much stuff to bring down that I'd rather have Maye or Mariana get them for me. I'll ask them & let you know. let me know what you decide too.

kate, can you bring stuff down on your site visit and have mariana hold them for you so it is less to bring before the wedding?

That is what I'm hoping for.

Here's my 2 cents: You will always come out cheaper bringing your own votives and candles. Dreams fee is not per table but per votive. Yes, per votive. The average reception table alone will have 4 or 5.

 

I am planning to bring the prepackaged votives and holders with me. Quantity is still unknown but I intend on 5 for each table.

 

The dollar trees in my area have just started carrying the battery operated candle lights. That's another great option!

Also, you can never have too many candles so plan 4 per table including cake and food tables. Then bring an extra box.

Maye is taking care of my centerpieces for me which will be $12 each & includes a hurricane with sand, large candle & 5 votives. I am also buying shells from her to sprinkle around the table & I have my starfish place cards. I hope that's enough for a centerpiece. Anyway, I think the $12 is a good price which will include 5 votives.

 

I do need to price out individual votives for the luminarias. I want candles everywhere so I will ask her for her prices. $2.50 per votive seems like way too much!!! But it's one of those things that becomes a pain to carry down...

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
