By the way, my dress came in already at the bridal store!! They said it would take about 5 months, and it was only 3! Super happy about that, I can't wait to try it on since I have lost a bunch of weight since I was sized for it!!

Tam, I think your dress is beautiful! And I wouldn't worry about not liking it, you bought it because you loved it originally, and even you said it looks better ON than on the model! :0)

 

Toya, WOW you are one popular girl! > 70 guests, that's awesome! I went to a destination wedding in 2008 that had 75 guests, and it was a blast!

 

NSBride, that's soooo exciting about getting your dress in early! I've talked to a few people who've had the same thing happen, I think they definitely exaggerate the order time so that everyone won't leave dress buying until the last minute.

 

Regarding the free room, I thought it was Dreams policy to give you one free room if you book 5 rooms for 7 nights, or if you book the Honeymoon suite? That's what I THINK we're getting, unless something's changed that I don't know about!

 

Tam I looked at that mug website, thank you so much for posting! I played around on there for 5 min and came up with what I think will be the PERFECT mug for everyone! Prices are very reasonable too.

 

What are you guys doing for bridesmaid gifts? I've been stressing over this issue for some time, but I think I've decided to get calf-length pink waffle robes embroidered with their names, and then pay the $30 for the day pass to the spa the day of the wedding. I will get my MOH the same, and then pay for her to have a body wrap or facial or something too. I myself will get a white robe embroidered, of course! :0)

I have asked for all the group rates I can get from Evelyn and she has only given me the 10 room deal. I just emailed her about this one to get some things cleared up because she has not offered that to me at all. So hopefully we"ll get some answers ladies! It may have been a limited time offer I'm thinking :-(

That would be a great idea!! I am going to make them the tank tops that you always see (bride, MH, BM) with scriptina writing (for those who have DIY you know its gorgeous) with iron on transfers. As well, I am ging to buy them larimar necklaces upon arrival in the Dominican, because it is something very destination appropriate!!

On the topic, what are your FI's getting for their groomsmen? My FI has no clue what he should get them!

Tara,
I really like that idea of the robes with embroidery on them and the spa part.... have to think about that. HOw is that price wise? Where are you going to get the robes from and the embroidery done?
I have been wracking my brain for gift ideas that are more on the personal side.. so far I've just come up with jewellery.

NOt sure if they have the stores in Ottawa, but in TO they have Brandz Gone Wild.. it's kinda like a winners/outlet dumping ground.. I was there for the first time the other day and bought some Ping and Izod golf shirts for my Dad for xmas that were under $20 each, (normally $70+)... WHile there, I saw some cute short robes I think that were Joe Boxer.. I'll have to go back now.

I haven't decided on what dinner package to get.. I like the platinum on best, but might settle on the gold and get a photog instead too... the FI is being cheap about the photog, and says we can get lots of pics from everyone and even walk around with some people to get prof. looking pics, but I disagree...
but it is a lot more money.
I might just use the hotel photog just because it's easier and am worried about the other ones being too expensive.. I wish they would post packages online!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
