And, ditto to what Abbie says, just call them to set up internation or Mexico plan depending on what they have.
Ooh...so true. I will call - thanks girls!

I got one of my nephews to burn that CD I needed. Should be interesting cause he's 15 and I told him to "pick out some songs" that you like. Oh Lord. I pray it's not crazy music. LOL. I do'nt think the band will rest more than 15minutes between each set so we should be fine.
Jorge's parents, his bro, and bro's wife and kid left Portugal already for DR today! :)
I cannot believe this is really happening, guys.
I just want to say right now that this JULY BRIDES thread has been the best EVER! and I will miss you guys when I'm gone and it has been so fun sharing planning details with you guys. You guys are the best ever. BDW rocks! :) :) :)
yes- packed! i needed to know what to give to my parents and had even considered shipping things to fi's parents so that they can bring stuff down. so i didn't want to screw myself over in the end. i'm so glad i did.

So, I'm just starting to finish some of these projects - seems easiest to just post on our July girls thread...I tried resizing so hopefully this is better...

 

OOT bags - made myself - just bought plain gift bags 12 for about $4 from target (I think...) too many people, and too small of a budget to do anything else...oh well!!!!!

Oops - I'll try again with that size...SORRY!!!...

here are some other examples of OOT bags - I used a variety of tropical/beach looking paper (because that is just what I had and thought it looks kinda cute and I can put more manly looking ones in guys rooms, and girlie ones in girls rooms)

    • 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.
