Those look fab! I am thinking about doing those for the welcome dinner.

 

Question: Do you use all pics of the couple or do you put family and friends on there too? It'd be cute for the reception to find group pics of the B&G with the guests seated at each table.

I am jumping in on this really late...but those are so cute and I was wondering how the clear labels turned out, did anyone try them? I am excited about trying these.

I admit - I didn't do it yet! I really think I like the velum idea better though because it creates a diffused effect over the whole bag. I think I will try these again since I have gotten a better printer & gotten smarter about this whole at home printing stuff once I created my invitations.

let me know how it goes, I am debating between a night time candle-lit ceremony and a garden wedding. Not sure what to do yet but if I do either I can use the luminaries. I like the idea making some of the decor because it gives that personalized feeling.

I finally got around to buying white bags from Michaels and I'm going to try to make the luminarias with our template on the clear labels. I'll post a pic when I'm finished.

Questions:

1) Do you put a design on each side of the bag, or just one side?

2) What size candle do you use? I want to have the luminarias around the reception area at Cascade (dreams) and I wonder if votive candles might burn out too quick... Let me know what candles anyone else has used and if I should get them down in Cabo or bring down. Also, can you just put the candle in the bag and not need a glass container around it?

thanks girls!!

Jen, I did just one side of the bag. Also, I'm using a glass votive candle and I'm going to put a little sand in each bag to weigh it down. I bought the glass votive candles at Michaels it was $5 for 12. They were on sale! I bought a ton of them! How many are you going to do for Cascade? I'm not sure if that helps at all?

Thanks Natalie!! I have to go back and look for some cheap candles at Michaels. What a great deal!! I still don't know how many I'll use at Cascade. I bought enough to make about 20 - not sure if I'll use that many b/c I'm also having tiki's... I might ask Mariana or Maye how many luminarias is typical. How many are you using?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
