Love the guest book!

Our guest book (yet, another BDW find) was a map of the DR that everyone signed.  It was easy to transport in its tube and we are in the process of getting it framed now!  I ordered it on Ebay.

I ran with the “beach-y†theme and decided on sand castles for the centerpieces.  I found these online and fell in love!  My mom is the artistic one in the family and I never inherited her genes so this was her “projectâ€.  We had the sand castles sitting on a blue plate with some sand layering the bottom.  We have starfish, seashells, sand dollars and sea glass scattered on the plate.  Our table markers were photo frames of our favorite beaches (Riveria Maya, Dewey Beach, Crete, Saint Martin, Santa Monica, etc).  We wanted to incorporate our dog in the wedding so she was at the sweetheart table with the newlyweds!

We opted for just white table cloths because we did not like the resort offerings and we were not bringing down our own linens!  It was plain but Iâ€ll take plain over ugly (which was what the resort was offering)!

Again, in line with the drinking … we decided to have shot glasses for each guest (ordered from Oriental Trading – and sticker labels from Staples).

We also had cocktail shakers for each table (ordered from Food Warehouse for $3 or $4 each and the quality = bar-quality!).  We asked the lobby bartender to make us Sex on the Beach shots for the cocktail shaker -- he made quite a few refills, too!!! (We took the idea from a former bride on the forum).
