Hey ladies!

 

Hope all is well. I see many of you are interested in La Barcaza, and that looks sooo cool! I was in touch with Flori, who sounds super to work with, and very accomodating! I bet your guests will LOVE a cruise reception! We want to have our reception on the actual resort, but we considered doing the boat for our rehearsal/welcome party/dinner. BUT, our guests fly in late Saturday and we're getting married the Monday, so I don't want to usurp half their first day with the boat. So we've opted to just do a 1 hour cocktail and apptizer hour on the resort on Sunday, then everyone can get to know each other.

 

nsbride, a Canada Day wedding would be unbelievable! YAY Canada!!!!

 

How many of you are LOVING Ebay for wedding planning? So far I've ordered our plastic vases and pink jewels for centrepieces, some tiny starfish, 2000 white rose petals, and I've found someone to do my flowers through there! Not sure how I'm going to get them down there, but her stuff is AMAZING, and her prices are unreal. For a bridal bouquet, MOH bouquet, 4 bridesmaid bouquets, groom's boutonniere, 4 other boutonnieres, and 2 corsages, I was quoted $230. It's awesome!!!!

I'm going with La Barcaza now anyway, cause its a price under contract and can't change!!
Oh, Ok, I thought I was just an idiot who couldn't find them.... happy to know I'm smarter than I thought!!

I just had a big conversation with gerry about the possibility of having the reception on the boat and he gets motion sickness too much to chance trying it... so we're are sticking with the resort even though it bothers me immensely (sp?) that this has happened with the pricing.. why don't they have the 2010 pricing available in 2009? 2011 in 2010 etc? Would solve a lot of anger issues with us if they did...hope that made sense...

Crossing my fingers! Actually, a July 1st wedding would be cool for us... CANADA DAY!
Hey Nat,
That would be cool to have it on July 1, then it's always a party on your anniversary!
I'm curious whether the WCs have said anything to you guys about why you changed venues for your receptions??

If they did, I hope your responses were because they are trying to bleed us dry..

I forgot to say that we bought my diamond and ordered my rings today!!!!! very excited especially since I should get my ering before xmas..

 

Does anyone know if it is a tradition for the girl to buy the groom's ring? I have heard yes and no, so not sure and my Fi asked me if I'm buying ithuh.gif WTF! I will if I have to, but it's not in my budget, that's for sure.

Tam you're right about that!! Except sometimes we are in Quebec for July 1st, where they don't celebrate Canada Day.... anyway.

 

I think that yeah you are supposed to buy his ring, but I'm not sure! I'm going to buy my FI's ring for sure!

toya, thanks for sending those menu prices. it seems a lot higher than what i thought it was before.

 

as for your FI's ring... i'm very anti-"supposed to"... we are just kind of making up things as we go along. J sacrificed his entire tax return and then some for my e-ring, so i made a deal that he could get his bands and i'd get my ring (we have shared accounts and a credit card so it really doesn't mean much). i don't think it really matters.. whatever you guys decide to do will be perfect.

yeah Tam its the weirdest thing. Everyone moves in Quebec on July 1st if you are renting pretty much, so thats all you see. I mean TECHNICALLY they do host Canada Day celebrations, but its not a very popular event outside of Montreal. Montreal has a lot of students and people from outside Quebec, so I find it a little better there. But on July 1st in Quebec City I hardly remembered it was Canada Day!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
