Toasting Flutes/Cake Cutting Set

Recommended Posts

I searched for a thread on this but wasn't able to find one. I was just wondering how many of ya'll were bringing your own toasting flutes and cake cutting set or if anyone was just going to use what the resort has?

 

I was hesitent on buying toasting flutes because I figured they wouldn't make the flight down but I found some that were too cute not to buy so I am just going to have my FI carry them on as his smaller personal item.

I have beautiful flutes that my FMIL gave us when we got engaged but I am not bringing them down :( I plan on just using whatever the resort has. I will have so much other stuff to bring and am afraid they would break. Just one less thing to worry about!

I purchased mine from Things Remembered and I am bringing them down there with us and using them again for the home reception.

Actually it comes in a very sturdy case that contains all the items so I am not worried about it much.  I will have to put it in the checked luggage since there are technically two knives in it but I am really not worried.  I'll pad it with bubble wrap and clothes...and pray. :)

I didn't bring flutes or cake cutters to my destination for the same reason. As it was we filled 1 1/2 suitcases with wedding supplies, and I tried very hard to bring as little as possible.

 

However I have read posts from lots of brides who did bring their own. I guess it depends on who offers their suitcase space, shipping costs to your destination, number of guests, personal preference, etc. I flew down 2 ring bearer pillows with shells on them. Because of the shells, they had to be padded, which took up even more room than just the pillows themselves. They took up a lot of space and weren't an absolute necessity, but I wanted them!

    • 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!!
