My mom got our crinolines yesterday, so Hailey and I tried them on. Hailey tried hers on with her dress and it looks sooooo adorable. I didn't get pics yet. I will once our tiara's come in which should be soon. Then I will get her all dolled up and take a pic. I tied on y crinoline. but not with my dress. I was too busy cleaning my Mom's place to get ready for Justin's 1st birthday party on Sat. That is another task in itself, cleaning up after the kids, keeping them quite while Mom is still sleepig and doing my workout on the dance revolution.

 

Michelle, I love the maraca idea. That would be so cute and fitting for a Mexican wedding.

Hmm what else do i have to do now:
- Start welcome packets
- make programs
- make menus
- make placecards and seating chart
- put together oot bags and hand them out a few weeks before we leave
- get paperwork translated for Dominican
-finish making CDs for OOT bags
- make a must play songlist and burn onto CDs
- find undergarments to wear under my dress
- pick out hairstyle
- pick a first dance song (we can't agree on one)
- pick father/daughter dance (haven't even discussed this yet)
- get makeup done at sephora
- lose 20lbs
- dress fittings

WooHoo!!! that stuff isn't too bad. the end is near. I'm going to get most of the diy projects done by the end of august, hopefully! I know my October is going to be crazy so i don't want to have much left on my list by then. that's my goal!

I never thought of using the postcards for the bags. I was going to get postcards for the photshare info, but now I may change my mind.

I love the lose 20 lbs on your list. My goal was to lose 50lbs for the wedding, and let's just say I am nowhere near reaching that goal. I think me losing 20 lbs at this point is even a pipe dream, but I'll take whatever I can lose.

Let me know how your makeup trial at Sephora goes. I was thinking of going there as well. I did buy a makeup set by Smachbox that came with a couple different shades of brown eyeshadow, brush, lip gloss, the face primer stuff (I know there is a technical name for it, but can't think of it right now) and maybe a blush? I got it at Ulta for $45, but haven't tried it out yet. I figured that could be my back up plan if I don't like the way the spa does my makeup during the trial.

OK ladies, I told you I took lots of pics so please forgive my multiple posts. Let me know what you think.

 

The invitations, RSVP and travel card. We mailed them in the same pink envelope as the RSVP envelope. The petals were folded closed and were tied with pink and green ribbon or raffia after we ran out of ribbon. Al the paper and envelopes were purchased at Paper Source. I plan on using the same paper for my pther DIY projects-menus, placecards, programs, etc.

OOT Bags and Stuff (so far). We were only able to find 12 of these bags at Target so my plan is if we don’t have enough I may wait to give the BMs their bags and gift until we get to Mexico and use their beach bags as their OOT bags. They will still get the stuffers. If that doesn’t give us enough bags then I may have to find different ones. I really liked these and the inside material matches our color theme so I’m hoping I won’t need to go that route. Oh and they were cheap- $2.50 each!

This stuff will go in the OOT bags for the rooms that have kids-beachballs, sand toys and swim goggles.

BM Swag Bags-Personalized beach bag, mani/pedi kit, flip flops (to wear with dress), travel blanket (another Target find), shot glass on a necklace, photo album. They will also get swarovski jewelry and a spa gift certificate for Mexico.

This is the gift for my brother, but we got the other RB one of the snorkel sets. I also ordered a RB book for each of them, but didnâ€t get that in yet. We plan on getting them something else, or just giving money.

Sand Ceremony Kit from Kensington Classics-I’m somewhat worried how we will be bringing this down to Mexico. It came in the blue box inside another box surrounded in bubble wrap. Will they let me check a box like this, or do you think I should carry it on? The seashells I got on sale at Pottery Barn and will go in the shorter vase. The shells will be poured in the bottom of the heart before the sand, or we will have family pour shells in before the ceremony. The heart is bigger in person than it shows online. I was surprised by how big it is!

Wedding jewelry – Let me know your thoughts if you think this matches. They are different brands, but it was the closest match I could find. I really wanted a square shaped set, but couldnâ€t find one.

Michelle the jewelry goes great together I think it looks like a set. Very pretty. The bliss spa products are great, i love their stuff. I really like your colors. If i go to a target this week or weekend i'll check for those bags. I would carry on the sand ceremony to make sure it doesn't break.

 

What is a ring bearer book?

    • 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
