Lisa - Sorry to hear about the surgery, but you are right about the fact that it is over now. Too bad it had to happen right before the wedding though.


Steph - You look great in that dress. It won't be long until we get to see the wedding pics with you wearing it!!!


Celina - Glad to hear you had a great time! Your make-up looks great too.


Michelle & Amy - Both of your hair styles look great!


So we didn't end up going paintballing on the weekend. It was really cold with a really strong wind, and then it started snowing. We decided it would be better to wait on the paintballing, so we went bowling instead. I took the kids with us and Hailey got 3rd in both games of the 10 pin bowling. She got to use this little ramp thing that she just pushed the ball down. Then we went back to my friends and watched a couple movies. My next shower is on the 8th, and I think there may be more of a party after that one.

Lisa, I totally love your dress..it looks awesome on you!


Celina your makeup turned out great and the pink wig is hilarious. I wish I would have thought of wigs for my bachelorette because we used to do that back in the day just for shits and giggles..ha



It's getting so close it's so sad to know that a lot of you guys will be gone when I may need my full support group as it's getting closer and I'm worrying about this and that and stressing about everything girl_werewolf.gif :)


So, FI is so busy at work lately that after our legal ceremony on Friday he may have to go back to work. I don't know weather to be pissed or not. He needs to work more to make money I know he's stressing because they haven't been as busy and money is tight when we need it most..and part of me wants to not make a big deal of it because I want Mexico to feel like our "real" wedding day so we''ll see. Would it be too cheesy to just wear jeans to our legal ceremony though?? I mentioned a dress and he was like..I'll probably be just wearing jeans because I'll have to go back to work afterwards.....hmmmm...interesting..I left the house and went to yoga after that to think it over before I became bridezilla :)

I must say that I was prepared to wear jeans and a t-shirt to our legal day, but then when I saw people posting pics here of their legal days, I decided I could wear a dress. I am not one to wear dresses very often, so I figured our legal day would be a good time to wear one. Afterwards we went for supper, but our witnesses came from out of town to be there with us. I know that there have been a bunch of people on BDW that went their separate ways after the legal ceremony whether for work or other plans.


If he has to go to work afterwards, could the two of you have a nice supper later on? Or what if you set up a nice dinner for 2 at home with candles and stuff for when he got home?

Good mornin Ladies!


Erica - tell Hailey she rocks! rockon.gif My son loves that ramp thing too at the bowling alley. He tells me he "needs" to go bowling. He is funny!


Awww Amy - maybe you can have a nice dinner on Friday or enjoy a great breakfast together? I have no idea what we are doing. I have no idea what I am wearing either!


FI is really excited for Friday, but I'm not as excited as he is. I think we'll probably go to a nice lunch since we will be downtown. And then I am having myself a drink!! Ha ha! Let the cocktails and vacation begin! Woo-Hooo!


OH YEAh...Amy...I'll be back before you leave ~ you won't be alone on your last days! smile03.gif

Amy maybe you could do like Erica suggested and have a nice dinner later. it sucks he has to go back to work but he cant help that. I come back on the 10th so i'll be back to support you too.


We are all going to have the most perfect weddings. i think we've all been a little crazy, stressed, nervous whatever you want to call it but everything will work out for us.

I agree about the legal day, really was not big deal. I did wear a dress but that was cuz we went out to dinner after to a nice place. I like the nice bfast idea!

So, do any of you girls have silk dresses? I just finally put it together that my dress is silk, and will probably be see through if it gets wet.... a la TTD

    • 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
