    Did you have the bon-fire at Dreams?

    We are wondering what to do for our "Welcome Party" we already have so much going on with wedding activities, we don't want to overwhelm our guests.
    We looked into having a bon-fire at Dreams, but the offered us a "Mexican style fireplace" for the beach at a rate of $150. It's not quite what we had in mind (we wanted an open flame to make smores etc.)

    Thanks for your help!

      Hey everyone! It's been forever since I posted, but I do read all of your posts every day! Things have been crazy since my fiance Matt got back from Iraq in January, and we are now down to just two weeks until we leave for Dreams and our wedding is on the 11th of April. I am so excited!!! :)

      I wanted to share my welcome books with you all...I decided to make these cute little books with information and pictures of Matt and I for all of our guests. I am sending them out today so that everyone gets them before they leave. I included little tips about traveling in Cabo...such as info on the airport and transportation, info about the wedding and wedding party, Dreams dress code and attire for the wedding, and some helpful English to Spanish translations. I had fun with the Spanish and included a translation for "I am not really related to those people!" hahaha!

      I took pictures of the books but I can't figure out how to post the pictures on here for you all to see...So if someone knows how to do that please let me know!

      I also made some hanging flower strands to go on the back of the huppa. I got the idea from another bride on here and they are just gorgeous! Michaels is having a great sale on fake flowers that look real - 50% off!!! I will post pictures of the flower strands too when I figure out this picture thing.

      Good luck to everyone, and I can't wait to post my wedding review on here soon!

        To post the pictures, you have to upload them to an image hoster like photo bucket, then copy and paste the IMG code into your post and whaal laa picture in your post.

        Can't wait to see them, will you be sharing the template also?

          Thanks for the help! Here are the pictures of the welcome book:

          I don't have a template because I just walked around Michaels and sort of just made it up :) I picked out some of the colored paper in the scrap booking section, grabbed some tropical stickers, palm tree hole punch, and some pretty ribbon to match. I printed what I wanted on the paper and then filled in the rest with the pictures and stickers. I hole punched every page and then just tied them together with the ribbon. I am not very crafty so this is a VERY easy way to make welcome books. You could definitely make them look better if you are crafty and have some time to do them!

          Here are some pictures of the flower strands:

          These were really easy too! I just picked out pretty flowers that I liked, which were already on a green plastic strand. I got two of these vine type strands and then some clear beading string. I took the flowers off the vine, cut the end of the plastic off to make a hole through the middle of the flower (which you can't see when it's all put together) and then just strung the flowers on to the beading string. I tied them in a knot when they were spaced out correctly. I made 6 strands with 8 flowers on each strand and kept the extra flowers to use as decoration at the wedding. We will string the flower strands on the back of the huppa for the ceremony.

          Hopefully some of this helps...I am not a very artsy person so these are very simple, easy, and quick. Let me know if you have any questions!

          Good luck everyone!!!

                I got the flowers from Michaels and they are having a 50% off sale right now!!! I got all my flowers for $10! I LOVE sales :) I'm not sure how long the sale will go on for so you might want to check. It might just be for Spring.
