Recommended Posts

welcome to the august brides thread bridget! post some photos for us and let us know how else we can help!
Thanks Maura! Hopefully I'll get around to posting a few pictures over the weekend after I get my "info packets" done. I definitely need some jewelry inspiration so I'll be sure to post a picture of my dress as well.

For now I'll post a picture of our invitation. We had discussed just inviting a few close people by word of mouth (especially given the short amount of time between setting the date and the wedding) but my fiance was afraid of offending people so we did invites and sent them to immediate family...about 25 in all which wasn't too bad. The invites were either matted on blue or brown cardstock and then put in the contrasting envelopes. After I did the invitations and started looking at flowers I changed the colors to chocolate, bright pink and green and got rid of the blue...oops! cheesy.gif

Maura--I don't understand how you're being charged to have the flowers changed when you weren't the one who goofed up the order? I hope they turn out okay for you this time!

 

And I got a chuckle out of the program story...sounds like something my sister would do!

Um... huh? We seriously have good FSIL stories.

So, I'm looking at what's left on my to do list:

Purchase bags and filler for OOT bags
Print transfers for OOT bags
Design and print hang tags for ceremony fans (ala Tami's)
Wrap handles of fans and attach hang tags
Work with Maura to design announcements
Buy FI's shoes and shirt
Have a makeup session at Mac (or wherever)
Purchase our wedding bands
Buy a guest book
Arrange transfers to/from the hotel for us and guests
Send out pre-travel packs to guests
Have legal ceremony
Make up seating charts
Make an appointment for my final hair cut & color
Design and print paper stuff - escort cards, menus, welcome letter

And that's about it! Woohoo!

Two months and four days!!!

haha guys.... i actually hated the apricot to begin with, that was the original color she gave me. the bright orange of it just looks too harsh against my ivory dress with beads, lace and pickups. the peach color looks way too streaky because she's retinting flowers that are already apricot color so the pink doesnt look right on the peach ones. i ended up telling her to do the coral/apricot so we'll see what happens....

    • 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.
