Amy, When my BFF got married, she had a chocolate theme. Anyhow, her escort Hershey bars were wrapped in tiffany blue paper and our names were in chocolate brown.....she had steak or salmon as her menu choices. If you ordred steak you also had chocolate brown polka dots on your escort card, if you ordered salmon you had stripes. They were SUPER cute, but I got drunk and ate mine instead of keeping it. ha!

 

Anyhow, I know you already printed yours, but maybe you could still do something like that?

 

And, what did you buy at the mallhuh.gif Pictures!

I tried, but you know ppl offer but don't really come through. My FSIL is making the CD's. My friends (2 sisters) added hangtags to my fans. 2 of my BM's already left to Mexico. My SIL lives about 45 min away and it would cost me more trouble to drive all the items to her place then make them myself. I have faith I will get it all done!

Oh Martha, pictures! That's another thing on my list, purchase a camera so I can post all my wedding crap thread, lol. I'll try to find some pics tonight.

As for the escort cards, I have some scrap book paper I purchased a Target a while back and I think I'll try and be creative and add it to the back of the escort cards?? I'll figure it out.

OK - posted this in the August thread too but thought I should post here in case you guys never check that one (I mean.... I don't check the June, October, etc etc bride threads haha) - i posted additional stuff under the august thread, so feel free to go check that out if ya wanna.

 

Yesterday was my last and final shower! Here are some of the photo highlights with a link to the whole album at the bottom. (I had such a good time, even though my mom did show up) Enjoy! My Aunt threw an amazing tea party - there were muffins, scones, strawberries, then lots of different kinds of tea sandwiches and punch (with champagne, yum!) and then little french pastries for dessert!

ok this one is not supposed to be of me... my grandma's dog was really mad that everyone was putting all their attention on me instead of her, so she kept running in front of my friend with the camera, standing on her hind legs and waving her front paws at the camera for attention. it was totally hilarious! in the photo, i'm not all smiley because of the gift i was opening, i was just dying laughing at the dog haha

Maura, I love that invitation! So cute! If I were having a baby girl, I wanted a tea party...Love it!

 

Your pictures look great! I am glad you had a good time...even though your mom was there!

 

I have to ask, what is GSK? I am sure it is obvious, but I haven't figured it out.

Well, because we are having a boy, I want Jay to be there so we are having a co-ed baby shower...could you imagine the guys at a tea party? Ha! Jay would so not enjoy that!

Ahhh, GSK, makes sense now!

    • 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
