Where do I start??

Recommended Posts

Hi, We just recently got engaged! We know for certain that we want to have our DW at Dreams Punta Cana in 2009, and we know we want to have a beach ceremony, and possibly a beach reception... What do I do now?? I think its too far away to do menus and stuff like that, but I know I should be doin' something!!! Any tips that would help me out??

You should talk over time of year you would like to get married and contact the resort for quotes. Make sure that they can accommodate the beach ceremony and reception and the estimated amount of people you are expecting. I recommend going through a good travel agent if you can (I used our beloved host Tammy) because they can sometimes negotiate better rates, extras etc. and know what kind of things to look for. Of course going through a bad travel agent probably won't get you anything but it probs won't hurt that much either wink.gif


Make sure you look at menus etc. (even if they're the 2008 ones) so you can estimate general per person costs, etc.


If you know 100% that this is where you want your wedding then go ahead and book your date!

Once you get the date set then sign your contract (for the ceremony and room blocks if you're doing one) with the hotel and make sure you read through it carefully. If you've been promised anything (upgrades, discounts, transportation, etc.) make sure it's included in the contract.


Then you can start working on Save The Dates cards...

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
