Does everyone have their baby names picked out? If so what are you naming your little one? We are having a girl and cannot decide on a name, her middle name is chosen, it's a family name but nothing seems to fit. I feel a little guilty because we are less than 3 months away there's still time but I would like to have her name or at least a few when I deliver.

Ok.. so I'm not a mommy-to-be... but I thought I'd pop you all an FYI to this thread....

 

http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t42531

 

I am hoping that it may help out a few... and Shutterfly has the cutest baby announcements!

When the books were shipped, included in the package were unique coupon codes for $10 off your first order of 5x7 stationary cards when you order by June 30, 2009

 

I have five extra... I paid for coupon codes like this but I am willing to give them out on a first come first serve basis.

 

These codes are one time use only.

 

If anyone is using shutterfly stationary cards as Save the Dates, or for anyone interested in BABY ANNOUNCEMENTS... these codes would be handy.

 

PM me for the codes --- I`ll update this thread when all five codes have been distributed.

 

Ciao Ladies!

Congratulations Bisha!!!! That's so awesome!!! Gavin is SO adorable! I can't wait to hear more and see more photos!

 

As for me, we found out we are having... A GIRL!!!

 

And don't worry Gemini, we don't have names picked out either, and I'm 2 weeks ahead of you sad.gif Now that we know it's a girl we'll start working on it, but it's hard! We too have the middle name, but nothing for the first name. Not even some that we "kind of" like. It's really hard.

Don't feel bad about not having a name yet! We are due in 4 weeks and JUST decided on her name yesterday! Although, we only just found out for sure that she's a girl on Thursday. We've decided to keep the name secret from our family and friends, so hopefully none of them are on here reading! We decided on Mikka Erin (Me-kah) just a name I really like, and is not very common at all..At least around here. And Erin is after my cousin who passed away two years ago from the cancer that I'm a gene carrier for, so she's kind of my Angel...FI didn't like the idea at first of using her name, but I'm sooo happy that he likes the idea now that I explained how meaningful it is. So Erin's Dad is the only one who knows what her name will be besides us, and well you guys now! I called him to ask if it was okay to use Erin's name as a middle name and he was so happy :) Have any of you heard of any other Mikka's?

Hi Ladies, I'm not a mommy to be yet, but I love creeping this thread b/c I want to be a mommy and be preggers, but we are waiting a little while yet, and I love hearing all your experiences.

Anyway, I LOVE the name Mikka...it is beautiful. I once had a camp counsellor named Mica (but pronounced the same as your Mikka) and she was the only one I've ever met which says something, because I taught swimming for 10 years and have meet hundreds of children.

Great choice!

Good luck to all you mommies to be!

    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far? 
    • I've had nothing but an amazing experience with my TA, Barbara (Babs) Vong- she actually works for Wright Travel Agency- the ones that run this forum! I'd suggest reaching out to them first- they're the experts!   My wedding is in February of 2020, and we started planning around August 2018, for what it's worth on a timeline.
