Sent Out AHR Invitations and Inviting Special (?) Guests

Recommended Posts

My FI took our AHR reception invitations to the post office on Friday and some people received them on Saturday! The guy at the post office even had to hand stamp them and they still arrived in people's mailboxes on Saturday. Anyway, my FI took some more to a different post office today and the clerk there charged him an additional $.17/envelope to hand stamp them (they already had a $.57 stamp on them - which you can get the "Love" stamps in $.57 stamps). Also, thought you might get a kick out of who else we invited.......I didn't realize you could do that, so when I found out you could, I figured why not? :-) I heard they don't show up (obviously), but you can get a little plaque or a letter congratulating you.....

Haha! that is hillarious!

 

I don't know how I did it, but I ended up getting a "welcome to the world" or some sort of little postcard from President Clinton when my daughter was born. I'll have to see if I can find it and post a pic.

 

I want to send an invite to the president of Mexico!

 

Let us know if you do Maura and what you get back.

Ahhh!!! I didn't even think to send it to the president of Mexico! that's awesome! as for other pictures of the invites, i took a bunch of (trying to be) artistic photos of them this weekend, but got frustrated w/ shutterful b/c it was so slow and wouldn't load. so, i think i at least have them on my computer at home, so i will try to load pics tonight.

    • 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.
