Nathan and Cynthia

Married or going to be married at Grand Palladium Punta Cana?

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if I mentioned - but I ended up finding a seamstress in my area and she is currently working on my dress!! I have my next fitting on April 15, so I hope it will be better then! I guess you all will be gone then lol.!

 

We are debating now whether or not to get Pastor Rick York - FI is worried that our guests will know it's not legal and find out we did it before. He said that he'd rather pay the 300 some odd dollars for Rick York (who said he would bring a fake paper and everything for witnesses to sign, so no one would know) than make up a story. I'm not sold -- I contacted Carolina a few months ago and she said that it would be no problem to make it look real, but we're not so sure.

 

What do you guys think? Any suggestions? It's really not in our budget to get Rick York if there is something we can do (i.e. bring a fake paper to sign like Carolina suggested)

 

Ahh! help before you all leave! lol

I'm getting my hair done on Tuesday, I can't wait :) And I have so much other stuff to do its just not even funny. I'm done worrying about stuff though cause I feel like I'm missing out on the excitement of the wedding because I have so many things to think about, that was the point of the DW so I'm going to just let everything be, I'm actually not going to do the OOT bags, and the room keys things, I'm just working tooo much and everything is on my Mom's computer (She lives almost an hour from me) So there's just no time to get everything done. I don't think my guests will care if they don't give stuff, I'm a little upset that I didn't get everything finished that I wanted to but I'll live without it. lol

Mike has been home, but he doesn't help when it comes to wedding stuff. I've been doing alot of AHR stuff anyways, because like I said, its 6 days after we get home, so everything needs to be finished before we leave to go to the DR.

What about everyone else? How is everything coming??
Well no one will even know about OOT bags, so don't have to worry there.
I can get being upset when you not getting the stuff you wanted done, but like you said, we all can still live with out it. as of right now, I think I got everything I wanted, but it'll probably change when I get to the resort, saying 'of I should have done that, oh I forgot to do that' kind of stuff.

LOL just like my Mike, no help what so ever!!
That's crazy, planning 2 weddings... can't say it enough.. totally admire you!!!

I got all my OOT bags done and out of the way, I just have to drop them off to the people who live in MTL. I still have to make my scavanger hunt list for the cameras I'm putting on the tables,as I wont have a photographer at night. Oh and I still have to figured out a cocktail hour game (anyone have any ideas? we did the shoe game at our engagment party, not sure if we should do it again, it's a popular one!) the rest is just putting songs on cd for the dj, and printing e-mails from Carolina, and guest arrival list.. finish packing all the wedding stuff and the rest of my vacation stuff.

I decided not to complicate my life to much, so no oot bags for me, I'll buy something at the market over there for party favors. There is so many things that we can do, I read alot of good ideals, but at one point I decided on my mental health LOL, so I tried to keep it simple.....

I'm going for my hair apointement 5 days before we leave, I already have blond highlights, so no big change for me hihihi
but I am going to get waxed, and that will be the first time for me, I don't know if I'll survive it LOL

Courtney I think were all gonna look creepy trying to find one and another LOL

19 days before I leave :)
Yah, I've done the early flight before, and it was hell.. very tirering. Ah well at least we'll be in Punta cana early.. even tho I'll be supper tired. Plus most of our guest arrives the same day and we have to meet them at the lobby, they are all coming in a different hours through out the day.

Good for you, your so right.. after all it's a DW, it shouldn't be complicated or stressful, so you def have the right frame of mind, and I really like the idea of getting the guest a favour from down there.A memory for your wedding but also of their trip. If I would have thought about that before the OOT bags, I would have gone that route.

Ohh lucky you for hair colour. I am just going for a trim tomorrow. As I want to make sure there is enough hair to do the style i want for the wedding.
Waxing, if it's your first time, you may get an irration. But it goes away with in 3 days. So it's good your doing it before the wedding, but also be careful.. depends on how long your hair takes to grow back.. I'm at 1 week and half before I got to start plucking again lol sad.gif

I am so happy you found a seamstress. I hope you like everything she does to your dress. Keep us posted!!

Honestly, if it isn't in your budge, I say forget it!!! it's a dw after all.. we choose this route for it to be cheaper. I say make the fake papers yourself, and trust what Carolina says.. she's been doing so many weddings, she must know.
WHen would you have to let Rick know wether or not you want him for your ceremony? As I know a lot of girls are getting the symbolic wedding, we can really see if you need him or not when we come back (I'll be back on the 24th)

My new Hairstyle I picked, let me know what you think!! !

Hopefully I can add a flower at night with my TTD dress for the beach party (when I take the veil off)

Yeah that would be perfect -- see if it's really needed when yo uare down there, I would raelly appreciate that! I would feel better having an idea too, before I go spend the extra money!! :) That'd be great.

 

I love the hair styles -- I'm planning on doing a messy bun! I love it! I don't have a veil though, I keep debating about getting one! hmm

My hair turned out great, thank god! The colour is perfect and the cut is shorter by about 4 inches but I always think it looks shorter on me anyway. I bought a leave in conditioner from the salon that is supposed to hold the colour and also has UV protection so hopefully the rich colour lasts the next few weeks.

 

I started my new job today and everything went really well! I think it's actually a good thing that I started before the wedding...it actually stopped my from obsessing over the last minute details all day haha

I can't wait to meet all of you, and the 15th sounds perfect...how about an afternoon cerveza that day? ...OR 2? =)

I'm jeleous that you all get into DR in the morning...our flight doesn't land until almost 9pm! Hopefully I can bring my group to the disco that night to meet those of you getting married on the 13th! That would be so fun!

I'm still a little confused about the DJ situation...if we hire the DJ for our private reception, does he have an ipod connection or do I have to bring CD's for him to play? We're also hiring the string quartet for the actual ceremony so at least I don't have to worry about music for that part of the day. Does anyone have any good game ideas to give away the centre pieces? Let me know =)

 

Only a few weeks now for some of us...holy crap! haha

ooooh, also thought of another question...does anyone know where I can get a silk orchid hair clip for my hair? I decided not to go with a veil as I don't want to worry about wind and it pulling my hair etc..but I think I'd like to go with a realistic looking flower pinned up on one side. So far in the stores I've only seen black and black and white...I guess because it's not quite summer yet. I'm going shopping again this weekend to keep looking but if you have seen any around let me know =)

Thanks!

Carrie
