Anyone doing IPod for music?did you do full playlist or just random songs you enjoyed? Im so lost on this!!
We are having very small ceremony reception with only about 24 people so not doing a dance floor or anything just wanted some music with dinner and afterward?
-As well what are you bringing for decorations?? I cant justify some of the crazy costs of the decorations but not sure what i should or want to bring. we are doing family style dinner on beach so dont need much but worried i wont have enough?? we rented lights and candles but was thinking our boquets will work for centerpeices?
-oot bags-- im doing travel mugs and a few things havent finalized, however did you bring another suitcase for this stuff?
We did a HUGE playlist of songs for dinner music and the reception. We organized it so it could have played straight through, but our guests had a lot of fun choosing songs to play throughout the evening.
I brought various sizes of paper lanterns in various shades of aqua (pic attached), little seashells, and mini lanterns as decorations. The wedding coordinators did an amazing job decorating with them! They lined the aisle with the paper lanterns for the ceremony and moved them over to the reception area afterwards. They put the shells on the tables along with the lanterns (and we also brought glow sticks and bracelets as favors for our guests--which were awesome, BTW!--and they put those on the tables too). It was very minimal, but the setting is so beautiful that you don't need too many decorations, IMO.
Finally, the stuff for the OOT bags was a pain to get down there. We packed it all in actual boxes, which immigrations went through thoroughly upon our arrival (it was a HUGE pain, but they didn't charge us any import tax or confiscate anything). I had heard some advice from another bride to pack it all in a suitcase, and then to pack your dress in that same suitcase for the trip home, but we had too much stuff for the OOT bags to fit in one suitcase! I had also debated buying a suitcase or two at a thrift shop to pack the OOT stuff in and then just leave at the resort.
I hope that helps a little bit!

I couldn't find any pictures of the dining tables from the reception, but here's one of the cake table. It shows you the lantern. Just imagine it with some shells (and the glow sticks ).
Oh, and that sign in the lower left: kind of ugly, but it was great for letting people know that our events were private. It wasn't really needed for the wedding, but we put it up for our bonfire the night before, and we noticed several people starting to wander over, then they noticed the sign and walked away (we still had a few random people sit down and join us anyway!)

I just received an email stating that Fatima will no longer be working at Dreams. It looks like I have been handed off to another wedding coordinator. I'm a little nervous about this. Anyone else have experience working with Eleane?
