I love this one too...and I think you're right about the all pink bouquet ladies...thanks for the feedback.

The corsages and bouts will be something along this line (stems wrapped in sinamay), with the moms and dad all getting white-ish flowers and FI pink...maybe...if he's up for that.  I'm hoping to get palomasnest to do some tiny tiles to stitch/tie onto their flowers as well.

Ok, last dilemma.  For the reception/dance party, I'm changing into this dress by Barijay (the colour looks kinda weird here, but it's a beautiful turquoise):

And the little girls will change into these:

I'm looking into maracas for place holders/party favours...but am wondering what I should do at this point for decor colour.  Everything up to this point will be pink.  Should I just leave all the flowers/centerpieces/maracas as pink...or try to mix some turquoise in by say, doing 1/2 maracas fuschia and 1/2 turquoise?  Ughhh...I'm so confused.

Well, I just found this:

The flowers are paper, but I can actually picture a turquoise glass vase with pink flowers...hmmm.  But I'd have to find some cheap turquoise vases...

Love this mercury glass one...but it's $60...eeep!  I feel a DIY project coming on.  Has anyone ever painted or tinted a glass vase?

Ok, so it's great to have a plan come together...this was the inspiration photo I showed my FI this morning.  I told him we were on our way out to look for turquoise vessels of some sort to use for airy arrangements of pink and white flowers at the reception (it's amazing what he'll do when you promise to get him a sausage mcmuffin first!).

We went to a few places...Homesense, Winners...then to Pier One where he found these:

They're mouth blown glass, etched...large and chunky drinking glasses (almost 6 inches tall)...on sale came to around $10 a piece.  I think they'll be perfect.

Here's something else to throw out which I haven't yet found and answer to on this site.  At the reception in Mexico, we're putting out flip flops and pashminas for the ladies but don't have a clue what, if anything to do yet for the men.  Think $5 - $10 pp and small/lightweight/easy to take...alcohol is plentiful at our all-inclusive, no need to give that.  Our adult male guests range from 20-something to 70-something.  They don't play poker, smoke, wear cufflinks...they wouldn't use a fancy shaving kit or barware, they don't play golf...ughhh...I'm stuck!

What about sunglasses? We are giving sunglasses to the guys and pashminas to the girls.

Holly,

This may sound like a silly question, but when you did your luggage tags on VP, did you just type the words...Name,. Address and inset this on the business card template?

Thanks...I am new to VP...completely

 

 

Hey there! Yes I just chose the background that I liked and with a little trial and error I got the placement of each of the text lines to work. Just ignore their titles and use the text boxes. You could also wait until you get a free upload code and use your own design. But I'm not that design savvy so I used the template.

    • 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
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
