My sister is coming for Easter dinner this weekend so I think she will be taking her welcome bag and the bags for her kids. She may also carry a few others for us because we will be way over the weight limit... after all... we have to think of all those shoes!!! Yikes!
At first I thought it was 22kg per bag, and 2 bags per person, but no 2 bags and one carryone for a total combined weight of 25 kg.... so crazy, i had to say my fiance was right when he said we are not bringing extras down we will buy favors there...clothes, shoes, appliances (blowdryer, straitner) the limit will add up quick... my carry-on is my dress- the bridal salon i purchased it from has these special garmet boxes made specifically for travelling on planes= which is a relief becuase apparently sunwing doesnt have an area to hang your dress...

No problem!! Now I'm looking for something to have the ring bearer hold the rings on. Trying to avoid a pillow, but it looks like it might be my only opition.

 

We're flying with Canjet, 44lbs, but I got a special request and was add an extra 11lbs. The OOT bags I'm handing to everyone before we all leave. I knew we would have never had enough room if i would have kept them and just handed them out down there. So the only ones I need to take are 8 but I will give them to other guest to bring down lol!!

hey that's what MOH and BM are for !! lol.

 

sooo I have a delima, I hope you girls can help me. I finished my centerpieces. And I HATE them they look so freaking tacky. I'm hoping someone would have a better idea for me. I want to keep the vase (cause they are so light) but I don't think I want to keep the fake flowers. So I was thinking, maybe filling them up with Punta Cana side and then putting a candle on top, but then I was thinking there will be no flowers (does it matter?) but also I bought seashell candle holders to go around the centerpiece, will it be to much candles, not enough of anything anythings? HELP!!!! I know this isn't the time to be starting new projects, but I can't help it.. worse nightmare ever about 'em!!

this is what it looks like now, however the purple beads were a trailer, the real thing would have been clear beads.

I called CanJet and AirTransit (that who we originally flying with) both of these companies allow you to bring a carry on your purse and it's free for your wedding dress as a bride.
So call sunwing, they may do the same. I know they don't have a closet, but it should still be free to take it on the plan. I plan on just keeping it in my lap for 4 hours (it'll be long plan ride!!)

Has anyone has problems with this Sky Service Dillema?? I know some tour operators charter flights through this Airline... thank god Sun wing has there own fleet... if that wasnt the case I think I would have had a major breakdown... geez

I have been having wedding dreams that don't go well! haha...like I forgot my dress and D gave me my suitcase at the airport and it was empty!! That I forgot my music, or shoes. That we missed our flight (a lot of flying dreams since I'm terrified :S)

 

haha things like that -- I'm fine while I'm awake, but apparently there's a hidden fear about it that comes out when I'm trying to sleep peacefully!

Have any of the 2011 brides been able to get their dates? The last time I communicated with Carolina she said the 2011 rates wouldn't be available until April 1.

A sigh of relief for those of us flying with Sunwing, I called them today and asked about the closet on the plane for our dresses and they said that there IS a closet near the front of the air craft and we can put our dresses in there. Hopefully there aren't a whole bunch of brides on our flights that we have to share the closet with!! lol

 

Hope this helps :)

Has anyone booked an outside photographer? I've been looking around and contacted a few people advertised on this forum, but am not sure about who to choose. I was all excited about PhotoSouvenir, based on all the reviews here, but the prices they sent me made my eyeballs pop out of my head. Any thought on who you're using and cost?

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
