Tam you are getting really close!! WOW, I wish mine was close, I feel so prepared except for my centrepieces too actually.... haha we won't have that any to bring though! Does your carrier let you bring more but charge for it?

Hey all!

Geez, it seems like I blink and I miss a tonne of chatter!

 

Nat - LOVE the dress. Excellent pick! I like the detailing.

 

Tam - I would inquire about extra baggage fees. If you are trying to minimize the cost, maybe get family members to bring stuff...just make sure it doesn't look off (i.e. instead of giving one person 10 vases, give one vase to 10 people so they are not suspected of bringing stuff into the country that will not be taken back with them or sold in the country)

 

LaToya - I'm gonna read your thread now and respond to it

 

Cheers!

I'm not sure, I have to check.
Another interesting thought regarding civil or symbolic ceremony is that today I was told that to get married here you can just literally get a marriage certificate by going to city hall and only having the papers signed. So, technically you are married but really haven't had any kind of ceremony so you're not even misleading people ...really.... all that's happened is a legal document has been signed....

I also was thinking that I would rather put the money we saved doing it here towards the meet n greet boat cruise at the beginning of the week... It's going to cost about $1500 for what we want so those are my thoughts...

I gotta say I am starting to get sick of all these decisions that need to be made without much help...(except from my BDW peeps)!

I actually bought some centerpiece trios that hold tea lights tonight... going to try a bunch of different things and see .....

What's up chikitas...

A couple of things: Deyanira got back to me today with a possible layout for our dinner but I don't care for it. She proposes the FI and I sit at one table alone facing four tables of 8.

I also found out my dress came in early today so it's at the store... kinda nervous about that as I only tried it on once the very first time I looked at dresses..(yes I did go shopping 3 other times though)! Anyhow, still good right?

 

My candles I ordered from another BDW bride arrived today too and I should be FINALLY getting my flowers tomorrow!! Then I can actually start to seriously figure out my bouquet and whatever other flowers I need...

 

On the downside of the fast approaching date, I realized that I must get serious about working out!! 2.5 months will fly by and wishing my butt smaller doesn't seem to be doing the trick... :S

wow... i'm not even going to try to catch up on what i missed in the last week! my brother got married saturday and along with being a bridesmaid i also made the wedding cake, so needless to say it's been a busy week!! experiencing his wedding though just made me feel 100x better about having a destination wedding... we definitely made the right choice!

 

i saw real quick that someone asked about excursions.. i think we're going to do the sanoa island catamaran... i've heard that is fantastic! either that or the zipline tour.. they run on specific days so i guess we'll have to wait till we get down there to decide.

 

tam, i know there are a ton of different ways they can set up the tables! i've never been a huge fan of the head table if you don't have a ton of guests or a big wedding party. i've seen pictures where people have just them and their spouse at a table.. the reception is a time to socialize!! i'm sure they'll be able to find the best set up for you without a problem!

Saona Island is AMAZING... we did it when we were in Punta Cana this past May, and we ended up making friends who we hung out with the rest of the week!! It is definitely al about the drinking, since there isn't realy any snorkeling or anything, but its a good social and a day in the sun!! And oh the pictures!! :)

    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
