I loved the starfish it really made my bouquet pop. That is the resort bouquet and it was real flowers they did a fabulous job. But I love me some bling so I bought bouquet jewelry which is swarovsky or any crystal starfish on a long stem that easily sticks into ur bouquet. I brought with me a large crystal starfish http://store.thebridalbox.net/bjstarfish.html  that's for the large one. don't get confused not too many people sell the large one it is 2" and I only did one of those ( about $17 plus shipping) and than I got 6 of the smaller crystal starfish for the rest of the bouquet http://weddingfactorydirect.com/stboje.html these are the smaller ones and usually sold in sets of 2 for $10 or $12. The shipping sucks because u have to get them from different places but they were so worth it. and than I got rhinestone bracelet for the stem. I gave it to my coordinator and they set it in my flowers.

Great planning thread! Everything looks amazing and looked like everyone had so much fun! Love the maraca tags. I made business cards from VP but they don't look that great. I will have to check out Michael's to see if I can find something. 

Congrats!!

I found the tags and labels at Michael's by Gartner studios to be the absolute best. And i ordered from staples and a million other places ...trial and eror lol. The ones from Gartner that are sold at Michael's come either label stickers or perforated in alll shapes so that after you print on them with templates found on their website than you punch them out and attach to your project. http://www.gartnerstudios.com/shop/wedding-supplies

 

They were great. all shapes and some already have holes for attaching. or buy stickers and than attach to their gorgeous tags also sold in Michael's and don't forget to use the coupons I lived in there with all my coupons lol.

Hey girl - did you make those starfish chair ties yourself? How long did you make them? (They look like the perfect length for the Moon Palace chairs) Also where did you get the rafia from??

I did make the starfish ties and they were sooo gorgeous if I say so myself lol. I did not take a measurement unfortunately but I used three fifferent colors and just kept measuring the same length 3 at a time and used about a roll and a half of 100' rolls of each color for 15 starfish. I wanted to make 30 one for each chair but I just didn't have enough room to bring them so I compromised and the truth is I didn't even need that many with the chair sashes. She hung them for the ceremony on the aisle chairs and than around the gazebo and moved them to every other chair at the reception but it would have been fine to have a few at each table and our chairs like she hung them on. Any way I got the raffia at a great place it is a wholesale place and the 100' roll was pretty cheap and they had every color. you have to be a company but you can put any company info that is what i did. I have the name of the company at home and I will forward it when I get it.

    • 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.
