    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?

      Tam I was going to ask the same question Nat asked, will they let you bring extra bags if you pay 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)!
          maybe cuz I'm just tired right now

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

            Hey guys, someone one here was just at Dreams and posted a pic heavy thread that I will link below:

            I think we have seen a lot of these pics already, but I figured it would be nice for those who may have not gotten to see it yet and the pictures are recent (I think they took these this weekend).

                tam- i really don't feel bad at all for people not knowing. my lil bro and his wife are our witnesses and its only cause we were in their wedding so wanted to add them some how to ours since our wed party is so small.

                hope everyone had a fab weekend!!!!

                still trying to decide on centerpieces really didnt want to lug xtra things but not loving the photos for the centerpieces they offer. decisions decisions!!

                  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!! :)
