My mom gets married tomorrow!

Recommended Posts

She was hoping that I would get married before her but since I'm now engaged she's not worried wink.gif After 32 miserable years with my dad, they divorced. She suffered a lot so she started going to a local support group for the divorced and widowed. That's where she found her new husband Joe :) He's so wonderful to her.. total opposite of my dad. My mommy is my bestest friend so I am happy that this man's goal in life is to make her happy. Unfortunately my older brother is very much against my mom remarrying so he's been stressing her out beyond belief. He's given her the silent treatment for the last 3 weeks and when he does talk to her, he's screaming. He's very old school and we just can't get through to him. She's been depressed lately even though this should be a very happy day in her life.

 

And I love love love my FI. I have been complaining that he's not involved in our wedding plans but yesterday he called me up at work and said,"babe, let's do something nice for your mom. She deserves it after all she's been going through. I'll call around and see which restaurants have availability for Wednesday." Then he called me back telling me he got a restaurant (his friend's place which is sooo nice) and that on his lunch break from work he was gonna go to the bakery and order her a cake. He knew she doesn't like bananas so he was like,"Ok, I got her a strawberry cake. All women love strawberries!" LOL LOL I started calling around our closest friends and family and without hesitation they said,"Count us in!" So it's going to be a surprise! She thinks I made reservations to a restaurant just for 6 people but when she walks in the door she'll see everyone that loves her :):):)

 

My DIY skills are gonna get kicked into high gear today.. gotta make favors hehehe And......... my FI now has a get-out-of-wedding-planning for a while since this was his idea smile03.gif

Jenny that is so sweet of you and your FI. I'm sure your mom will be really touched. If she's anything like me, she'll be crying tears of joy, I got a little misty just reading this.

 

Pass along a big BDW hug to you and your mom! Congrats!

NO.. He won't even be in the same room as her FI. I begged his wife (who is my MOH) yesterday to go to the courthouse with my niece & nephew and see her get married. I told her it'd mean the world to her that her grandkids would be there. But she told me she'd have to talk it over with my bro.. ugh. I'm going to call her again today and beg one more time.

    • 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.
