Any other cruise brides out there?

Recommended Posts

So sorry for your loss, lovepea. I'm a destination wedding bride who was married in 2010, so if you need any pointers on getting things ready, please let me know.

Now that I have so little time, I am in panic mode, because I don't even know what I am supposed to be finishing at this point!  Crazy, I know.

Very sorry for your loss lovepea. As cheezy as it may sound, I'm sure it will be  a beautiful wedding because you love eachother so much and obviously have gone through very difficult moments together. I hope we can somehow help you from the website and that you can find people around you to help you with the planning too. ** hugs **

Hey ladies, thank you for your kind thoughts for me!  I have been able to calm down a slight bit since last week.  I am trying to get organized and if you have any pointers, that would be wonderful!


I finished my bouquets, flower girl basket, boutinere, corsages.  We have our clothing and accessories all purchased.  We have our rings.  I need to figure out a hairdo.   


We aready wrote our ceremony and selected music for the ceremony and first dance, father/daughter dance.  Hotels are booked, car rental booked, flights booked.  "rehersal" dinner reservation is pending.  OOT bags are almost ready, just have to put together.


I guess I need programs, a signature book or something similar, favors.


What else could I need to do?

    • 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.
