    Hi Girls!   Update regarding our planning, the last few weeks have been very productive after a busy september with lots of work! For those of you who don't know me (as we have a few new girls) I am an event planner for Marriott so my days are filled with lots of fun! lol This past month was so busy as apart from my job I took on two extra projects, co-workers wedding and cousin's baby shower. But now as the month is over, I've achieved a few things for our wedding which is only TWO MONTHS from today!!!! This week we finalized the following:
    • Church paperwork as we are having a catholic ceremony.
    • I purchased my shoes: Badgley Mischka Pink Randee, I completely adore them!!!
    • My dress was shipped from Maggie Sottero, should be here in two weeks for fitting!
    • I got my sixpence for my shoes! wondering what this is? check this website: http://weddingsixpence.com/ not a lof of people know about this!
    • We organized times for hair and make up for all the girls in the bridal party, both moms and me.
    • We purchased the presents for the bridemaids and the mom's presents.
    • The centerpieces are "partially" done. Floating candles, floralytes, vases, etc. I will post pics once they are completed.
    • I found the most AMAZING Aqua damask table runners! We ordered seven and I can't wait to see them!
    • BD shoot done with Jenerations by Jennifer (http://jenerations.com/) she was amazing!!!!
    Right now are are working on our luggage tags for the group, pre travel brochure, hair/make up style, menus, programs, welcome bags, etc. etc. etc. Basically the two next months will be crazy, but we can't wait for December 1st to arrive. How's everyone else doing with planning???

      Eliana, you always seem to have so much going on. I guess it is the events planner in you! What a great sounding job. Did you organize times for hair and makeup with the resort already? Were you advised to do that? My sister is my hair dresser so I dont need to worry about that but I definitely plan on getting my make up done by the resort. I also want to plan on a trial run for make up.

       

      I am down to 6 weeks to go. The only things I still need to purchase are wedding party gifts, fiance's gift and one of those picture frames that can be used as a guest book. I have my final fitting next week and then it should be smooth sailing, hopefully. Well packing will probably be a challenge...

        Oh ya and by the way...

         

        Misty, I saw you wrote on the Facebook page that Carolina wasn't that friendly. I'm concerned because she is my WC. Could you elaborate a little? I just want to be prepared. And I also saw that you had your reception on the Himitsu Terrace. How was it? That's where ours is planned for.

            Wow, Eliana, you got so much done! Where did you find aqua blue damask table runners? I keep going back and forth about table runners or just table covers.... I'm hoping to order my STDs and work on the wedding website this weekend. We FINALLY booked our rooms. I'm sooo excited! :)

            P.S. For any brides looking for Key Holders for their OOT bags, I found an amazing (and CHEAP) website that delivers so fast! http://www.idsupersh...gpzG!-766980158 100 Key/ID Holders for only $14 and they also sell the Neck Lanyards (100/$21). I'll also post this on the OOT thread :)

                  Eliana,

                   

                  Is this the size that fits the reception tables at Dreams Punta Cana?

                    Hi MsClarke724,

                     

                    Most banquet tables are 66 inches and from the pictures I've seen from Dreams they seem to be that size. The biggest that I've seen in the past are are 72 inches which will still work for the runners.

                    If you want to be on the safe size, you should get runners that are 108", but in my opinion the 72 inches should work. You can always ask your wedding coordinator the size of the tables, but they will send you a measure in centimeters or meters as that's what we use in caribbean,central & south america.

                      Oh Beach reception! here are the pictures that Carolina sent me as well as the requirements:

                      " Regarding the reception at the beach, please note that to set it, it has to be in a buffet style and to have a buffet to minimum of guests required is 35 guests.  The hotel will charge a fee of U$15.00 for the beach set up, over the buffet price."
