      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?

                  Mariana suggested 80 or so for the Oceana Terrace...
