Finally joined this site and I'm so overwhelmed.  You all are so creative!  I love all the DIY projects.

Where did some of you get the personalized luggage tags for your guests?


Is the beach wedding gazebo just plain and boring if you don't dress it up?  I think i'll order my own fabric and have them set it up.  I want to decorate the chairs too.  


Do you all think seating cards are necessary?  Is it important to have guests sit in a certain place do you think?


Overwhelmed... thanks for all you input.

I did my luggage tags through vista print.  I designed and printed them on (free) business cards and then bought the hard plastic cases to hang from the luggage.  I don't remember the seller and it's too long ago to still be in my history, but I purchased them from a seller on ebay.


I don't think that any wedding is too plain if it's what you want.  We got married on the beach, with nothing there except our wedding party and the water as a background.  We had chairs set up for guests and the "aisle" was lined with petals, but I went very simplistic and loved it.  So it's all about what you want.  We didn't even have a gazebo.


How many guests are you having?  I had about 25 and we didn't do seating cards (for the reception either).  I just didn't think it was necessary for such a small group.  If you are having more people, it might be beneficial to do seating arrangements, but I wouldn't do that for the ceremony at all.  Might mark off the first two rows for the family or something, just like a regular church wedding.

    • 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.
