Hi Jackie!

 

We had the silver dinner menu.  We chose the avocado salad, cream of tomato soup, the steak and the apple pie.  Everything was great but I didn't care that much for the pie.  But the wedding cake was yummy! 

I told my WC all my arrangements before hand...it was pretty easy for her because I was bringing most of my decorations and my own flowers (real touch flowers).  I told her how I wanted things placed and she did everything perfectly.

My sister bought my hair extensions that I brought down. I think she paid $75 for 6 pieces  They are the clip in types.  The lady at the salon had no problems putting them in.  She seemed pretty use to it actually! 


 

Happy planning!  You're going to have such a great day :)

I thought about getting some but didnt want to spend too much money for them.

 

Deemore, Im also going to do a sand ceremony. It took me forever to find a vase I really liked. My FI has two children so we are also going to have them be a part of it. While searching for a vase I did come across sand ceremony picture frames too that were really cute.

Hola Melly!

 

Im getting married 10/11/12 and we just booked the Portofino for our reception.  I was wondering what kind of decorations you did for your reception.  Also how the heck did you get all our decorations and gifts for your guest down there.  Ive heard of people shipping things to the resort and it not getting there!! : ( Im just worried ill ship things and when I get there I wont have anything. And my husband to be is not to thrilled on me bringing everything with us when we travel. Looking foward to see your pics!!  XOXOX

 

Thanks a bunch!

Hi Teresa

 

We brought everything down with us because I was to scared to ship.  We had 3 extra suitcases and paid the extra fee to bring them down.  We took an extra one and gave my mother and mother-in-law each one.  It wasn't that bad...

I brought down chair sashes, table napkins, cocktail napkins, silk flower petals, my bouquet, cake topper, menu cards, starfish place settings, centerpieces (each of my bridesmaid and my mom brought a vase in their carry on), candles, raffia fans and each guest had a favor (starfish bottle stopper). 

I had 45 guests at my wedding so I had a lot to bring but somehow made it work!  I left a lot down there so coming back wasn't that bad :)

Hi Melly81, Congratulationswoot.gif

Carolina is also my WC we got off 2 a bad start but things r fine now it helps to hear how good she was with ur wedding. I have lots of questions (lol)

 

Were the vases glass that u took down? I'm so worried about the vases I plan on taking not making the trip in 1 piece!!!!!! 

 

You used an Ipod for both ceremony and reception did you rent the sound system?

 

Did you go on any excursions? If so how much were they? I found a few things online but Iâ€m not sure if those r the correct prices.

 

Did you use the resorts centerpieces? Iâ€m looking for a florist in PC and having no luck.

 

Were the extra bags very expensive?

 

What rooms did you and ur guests stay in

 

Skyy.

I love this site!!!!  now if I could only get enough post out here so that I can get some of the templates. that would be great. I'm trying to put together my OOT bags and is becoming a pain.  Specially the designing and the wording and finding the right template for the things I need,  Ladies if any of you wants to help out and send me emails of templates since it seems that I can't reach the amount of post in time, I will greatly appreciate it. the email is ngrita22@yahoo.com.  TIA.

Hi Brides,

 

I'm doing the final check of what have I not thought of yet...

Guest books!

 

We are hoping that mother nature will be kind and that we'll be having the dinner and that part of the reception on the beach; dancing at the club later.  Has anyone out there DONE the beach buffet?  If you did, did you do a guest book? 

Also, did you do the first dance?  Or the daddy/daughter dance or the mother/son?

 

Just trying to figure out how that all works out on the beach.

 

Official countdown says 4 months and 18 days.

 

Thanks everyone!

Carly

Hi guys,

 

I'm a uk bride planning on getting married in May 2013 at either Dreams Punta Cana or Now Larimar.  I'm lucky enough to be staying for a week at each this June so if you have any specific questions you would like me to ask please let me know - I have a list but am sure I've missed some!

Hello destination brides!!!! I'm new to this and I think this is great to be part of! I'm getting married May 26th, this year at dreams resort!  Have about 3 more weeks to go! cheesy.gif  Thought maybe some of you can help me out with some questions I have.  I'm super worried about carrying all my wedding things with me.  I'm nervous that my luggage will be lost.  Just wondering if anyone had any trouble with this?? Also I'm having the Gold Dinner for the reception.  Not sure what is good.  Any suggestions?
