Ok so my first major DIY project after the invitations are the starfish escort tags. I am trying to explain this idea to my FI and my dad so they can help, but i cannot find the pics on here that inspired me to begin with. I would like to print the names along with table number on the card stock, hole punch it and tie to the starfish. Then the starfish will stand up in a sand box. Does anyone have any advice for how to make these awesome? I really need an example pic of the sandbox so I can show my dad. He does not have any clue what i am saying so he doesnt know what to build. Thanks!

These pics are awesome. I do like how the starfish standup in the sand better. I wouldn't want the first ppl that get there to mess it all up. I feel they have to stand on their own so the guest can pull their starfish out without displacing the others.

i think these look really sharp!  what a neat idea!  how did the starfish travel to your wedding site?  did they make it there in one piece?  i think they look adorable in the sand.  what a cheap way to set up table placers for your wedding day.  the little tags and ribbons add that extra special touch to the sandbox and starfish.  :)

I do love the idea. If I can pull it off I will be sooo freakin excited. Well they are not for the actual wedding. I plan on using this for the AHR for almost 200 ppl next month. But Here is what I am thinking so far..... My dad is going to make the tray to custom fit a nice dresser that sits right at the front door. Im going to try to match the fabric with the color of my sash (like a deep red)  for the tray and the ribbon. I do plan on using sand but my FI won't let me bring that back from Jamaica : ( so I'm just getting it from home depot. The starfish I found on Ebay. Alot did come broken and i had to superglue them. I don't know if i really suggest doing this for DW. I got a really nice card stock to do the tags and a hole punch that looks like a wave that will span the top of the tag. I just about have table assignments done so I will post  some pics when I have some assembled!

I am so excited! I finally figured out how to get the pics from phone to computer : )

The way that the escort tags turned out could not be any better! I was stressed out for a minute if I was going to be able to get them done or not, but once I started I finished over 100 in two days (most in one night). My dad finished the tray for them and I love that too. I found a cool looking piece of wood in his garage I liked for the sides and the bottom is just plywood from home depot.

I ordered the fish net from save-on-crafts.com. I think I might wrap it around the sides once the tray is filled with sand. I feel an amazing sense of accomplishmentwoot.gif

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
