I cut up small pieces of plastic (I used the stuff that was the packaging around my new hair straightener), and placed it between the battery and the LED contacts. (you will discover that one side of the battery is live, this is the side where to place the "plastic tab") Then wrap it tight with electric tape. I also purchased small "alligator clips" (paper clip) and then clipped everything together. (I did this all at home)

 

Once at the resort, I handed my LED throwies to the wedding coordinators and all they have to do is pull the plastic tab out when they hang them into the paper latern. The alligator clip helps make sure everything stays tight, and it's super easy to attach string to hang it into the latern.

 

Our LED throwies easily lasted about 2 weeks, before the batteries died.

Perfect! That makes more sense now. And the staff at Sensatori knew what they were doing? You just handed them the lanterns, throwies and string and let them do the rest? Did you attach the throwies to the lantern or did they? 

THANK YOU!

They attached the throwies to the laterns as they hung them up. I would explain to them to take the tab out when setting up your gazebo, but I think they have seen it a few times now! LOL But make sure to bring fishing line or string with you....you have to supply them with everything.

PS. I just handed them the laterns flat, and they set them up for me.

I would think they might be able to hang from trees to the gazebo....but it's quite a distance. I would be afraid they would not hang them high enough and guests would walk into it.  Maybe get them to hang them tree to tree? So that it's on the surrounding edge, not interfering with your dining area.

Also whatever you do choose, you have to supply them with everything. So bring lots of string, fishing line, tape, etc. that they might need to create your look!

(And I never saw any Grey Goose, even when we asked. they do serve Stol vodka)

At Azul Sensatori, there is a charge to set up. It is usually based on how many items you have and the number of guests. To give you an idea, we had 63 guests. To set up we had paper lanterns, centerpieces, table numbers, name cards, paper wraps (to go around the menu card and napkin), menu cards, and seating chart. They charged us $120 US CASH! (very important this is usually done unofficially, so CASH only!)

As long as you are packing the batteries/LEDs into your suitcase (ie. the bag that will be your checked luggage) you will be fine.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
