I was very productive today.

 

I finalized all the data for transfers between the hotel and airport, finished printing up the various things...

 

I've packed most of the wedding stuff into our two big suitcases (I'll travel with just my little one.) Now I'm just down to the errandy-y stuff.

 

My makeup artist is coming over tomorrow night for another walk thru.

 

I got picture frames for the table numbers last night (Michael's is having a 40% off sale - spent $33 for 11 frames!!)

 

Now it's mostly about making sure Chris has everything he needs, and getting my personal stuff packed.

 

woohoo!

You two will get everything done and ready in time. It seems so overwhelming eh? In 3 1/2 months that will be me, but for the time being, our legal day is creepying up quick. On friday I realized that it was exactly 2 weeks until we are legally wed. OMG!

 

Good luck with the finishing touches and the packing girls!!!

I'm carrying my flowers on - it's just the one bouquet. Chris' bout and my hair flowers will go in my luggage.

I've already enlisted my niece and nephews to do the assembly line for the bags when we arrive. I'll get to spend time with them and will buy them off with something fun.

I finished my day of timelines for the girlfriends. Let me know if you want it, and I'll send it your way.
maybe its not a bad idea to put my bouquet inside my garment bag with my dress? LOL just wrap it in tissue paper and tuck it in the middle of my skirt at the bottom of the bag.

can you email me your packing list and your day-of timeline? that would be so awesome :)

Done. Just be warned about the timeline. It's very, very pink.

OMG! I just found this forum and my wedding date is August, 16th. Now that I have seen how extensive these to-do lists are I am getting scared. I leave on August 10th and I still have to get so much taken care of!

oh my gosh, girls.. it's next week!!!! I have most things set aside but not physically packed into the suitcase yet. I'm thinking of bringing the wedding gown in a garment bag as a carry on.. I don't want to risk losing it or getting it wrinkled too badly in a suitcase full of stuff. We're going to buy travel insurance on Friday, then we leave on Sunday!!

Don't worry. Just keep a piece of paper in your handbag at all times and write stuff down as it comes to you. You'll be just fine!

Definitely carry your dress on. Do NOT risk it getting lost. It's just not worth it. I saw a show on the travel channel this last weekend - there's a store where they buy lost luggage from the airlines (stuff that's 180 days old or something) and resell it. They had several huge racks of wedding dresses.

Can you imagine if you saw yours on this show??

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
