Hey! Your wedding looked so beautiful!  I am getting married there Dec. 30/2013 and I noticed that it looks like you had lights under your head table?  Did you have to pay extra for that?  If yes, how much?  I really like how it looks!

Thank you! I actually didn't even know about the lights until we got there, so we didn't have to pay for them they just did it. Might be worth asking about!

Okay, I think this is actually my favorite planning thread so far!  You hooked me with the treasure chest, and I've been stalking all of you sellers on etsy  haha.  Where did you get the beach bags?  I absolutely love them!

I figured I should just start a thread with my goodies, since I'll be going along and wanted to share in case anyone else gets some ideas from my stuff, I figured I post it as I go along.  They'll be lots more to come, as I'm not getting married until January, but here's what we have so far: My Birdesmaid invitation boxes  Just something I pulled together with a little creativity at the local dollarstore.  I really wanted a different and super special way of inviting my girls! BM Boxes.jpg these are just beautiful!!! My Save-the-Dates. I designed these up in Photoshop and then just had them printed on 4" x 6" photos, and attached them to magnets (I cut up self-adhesive biz card magnets from Staples and stuck them on the back).  Ben & Sarah Save The Date 1.30.2013.jpg My self-designed logo (again, Photoshop).  We'll likely use this for some of the tags as well as the mugs I'm going to get screen printed. LOGO-6.jpg My centerpieces *I think*  I saw something really cool this weekend that may make it's way into these plans and flows a bit more of the vintage feel into it, which I'll of course add here if I do!! Again, dollar store cheapy vases and Orchids from Jysk (surprisingly good quality). Pardon the crappy cell phone pic ;).  I think I'll have some scatter gems mixed with seashells around these.  418207_10151351818295702_556685701_23241010_2127310644_n.jpg My card box. I love this one!  I cam across this treasure chest at Jysk for $15 and I just loved it, but I really want some more vintagey" feeling things at the wedding. So, I painted it up and antiqued it.  A very messy but fun process. Treasure Chest.jpg My "vintage" table number photo frames!  Again, a steal at the Dollarama, they are actually $1 plastic frames (which is perfect because they weigh NOTHING for travel).  I spray-painted them (using a spray paint meant for plastic) and then used my same paint/glazing method as I did for the box.  I'm not sure this is my final design for the numbers themselves, but that's what I've come up with so far, that co-ordinates with my other Photoshop designs so far. Table-Numbers-Collage.jpg That's it so far!  I hope to have lots more to show you (lord knows I have a head full of ideas, whether they actually work or not, that's a different story!!)

    • 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.
