Those CD's look great. What songs did you put on them?

 

Jessica - those flowers will look great in the centre pieces. Make sure you post a pic when you have one together.

Here is what I have so far on the CDs:

 

It's Five O'Clock Somewhere -Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffet

 

Guitars and Tiki Bars -Kenney Chesney

 

Temperature -Sean Paul

 

Hips Dont Lie -Shakira

 

When the Sun Goes Down -Kenney Chesney

 

Stays in Mexico -Toby Keith

 

Starfish -Sister Hazel

 

No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem -Kenney Chesney

 

Margaritaville -Jimmy Buffett

 

Mas Tequila -Sammy Hagar

 

Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off -Joe Nichols

 

 

FI thinks we should take out Temperature and Hips Dont Lie if we can find replacements. Kinda going for beachy, Mexico, summer party music. Thoughts, suggestionshuh.gif?

 

 

 

 

On a side note...thank you all for your well wishes, my procedure on Wednesday went well (love that anasthesia) the after effects was pretty painful and lets put it this way, they told me my bandage was low but I never expected to find it in my ass crack, yikes!! Now thats a bit embarassing!! But after a few tough days I feel pretty good today! Thank you all for your thoughts!!

warning - about to vent a little.

 

I hate my seating chart!! It's so hard!! We have 43 people going. 75% of the group is my mom's family. Then we have a wierd variety of "kids". ie 1 11 year old, 2 13 year olds, 2 16 year old, 1 18 year old. Do they all go at one table?

 

But then there is the issue of FI's brothers. One is 27, the other is 18. FI thinks they should sit together. Wouldn't it be weird to put a table of late 20s/early 30s together and then a random 18 year old?

 

Seriously. Why is this so hard?

Ugh, seriously. I haven't actually started my seating chart but I'm already getting requests from people not to be seated next to certain guests. Then there's a bunch of people who just don't seem to fit at any table. So while I'm not much help, I'm right there with you!

I was starting to work on a seating plan awhile ago but then decided to forego the whole thing. We will have the head table and then everyone can sit at the other tables around. That was a nice item to cross off the list and not have to worry about doing!!!!

Tsra,

 

I would seat the kids with their parents. I also think it would be fine to put them together as well - just leave some paper and crayons on the table. It will give them something to occupy their time. I think it would be fine to have your two brothers sit at the same table. It will make them feel special. I wouldn't separate them.

 

Steph,

I would take out Shakira (Personally - I can't stand her nasaly voice - it sounds like nails on chalkboard for me)lol - and add "Mexico" - I think it's by James Taylor. I love that song! (I think we may use it for our slideshow at our AHR)

 

What about "Tequila" by The Champs? (we are using that for our cake cutting song)

 

Hope this helps! Glad to hear you are up and around. I am going to be clearing a space off my desk here in a bit so I can take some pics of my stuff and post tomorrow.

It always is an option, and we were going to do this, but the more we talked about it, the more we thought that it is ackward for people to roam around wondering where to sit. So we thought we'd lessen the guests anxiety and do a seating chart. ( I could toally be wrong about the anxiety of finding a place to sit, but for me personally I hate walking around figuring out where to sit)

    • 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
