Here is a picture of my Fan and Tears of Joy Packet for our wedding ceremony. They turned out better than I thought, and I owe it to the ideas I saw on BDW! Thanks girls! (This is also the first time I've posted pics, so I hope this works.) Click the image to open in full size. For the Fans: I used the white paper paddle fans from Lunar Bazaar: White Paper Paddle Fan - F2WH Golden Orange Real Touch Orchids from Flowers by Design (13 bucks for a stem of 12 blooms): Soft Touch Medium Dendrobium Orchid Spray w/12 Flowers & 3 Buds The ribbon I purchased off of eBay seller Omegacraft. I was able to get 100 yards each of 7/8" and 3/8" satin ribbon for 15 bucks! For the Tears of Joy Packets: I used Glassine #4 Stamp envelopes that I got from eBay seller Haworth57. (50 envelopes for 3 bucks plus shipping). I ordered the labels from myownlabels.com and used the 3/8" satin ribbon. I used slightly larger envelopes than I've seen with other DIY packets, since I read that some brides had to refold the tissues. I used zots to hold everything in my projects together. I'm now in love with zots. I'm quite proud of my work! My fiance couldn't stop fanning himself with the fan! wink.gif bunny_4.gif Deb[ pretty fans.

    • 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.
