8 weeks to go and I am freaking out!!!

Recommended Posts

I feel like I haven't done ANYTHING!

 

I am just now starting to let my WC where we want to have the ceremony/reception, planning menus, etc. Plus, I got a copy of the ceremony script for the symbolic ceremony and it SUCKS! Now I'm having to write an entire script from start to finish, and I have no clue how the spanish minister is going to read it.

 

I'm totally guessing on locations since all I've seen is pictures. I haven't booked my photographers air or hotel yet, and I haven't bought anything for OOT bags. AAAH!

 

Oh, and foxy, when are you going to come back so we can pester you with questions? :)

^^ I feel you! My wedding is just 6 days before you. The pressure is on!

Do you get there a few days before the wedding? if you do, then you could pick out the ceremony/reception site then if you change your mind from the initial pick.

It's normal at this point to be freaking out! But at the same

time... you're almost there! yay!

Don't freak too much. I did everything last minute too! Like downloaded music for our ceremony/reception hours before I was suppose to leave to the airport. Everything will get done and to the things that don't, who cares?! It will all still be great.

 

The day of the wedding I forgot SO many things that I had either bought or made for the ceremony. Still turned out perfect. Even forgot my centerpieces! LOL See- no worries, you can't mess up as bad as I did and I still think it turned out gorgeous.

don't worry. most of us are just going by locations pics, not everyone does site visits. i'm not. everything will be fine. And if you feel like your rushed for time, skip oot bags. none of your guests will even know the difference.

Just remember most of the time the bride always stresses over the little things. If something is not perfect it's ok the guests will never notice. Besides it's paradise.

Girl, you are going to be fine. Everything was totally PERFECT for our ceremony and reception!

The script she sent you probably isn't exactly right. PM it to me and I'll highlight what was read for us. We added the Hand Ceremony (read by a family member) just before we said "I DO" -- which by the way is all we had to say, lol.

I highly recommend a beach reception with the palm fronds to privatize it (didn't cost us extra for that). Hopefully my laptop will be fixed today and I can get the rest of those pics uploaded and my review written.

I know you are freaking out wanting more info from me and trust me, I hate not having a computer at home to get it done!

Many of the other receptions we saw on the beach were beautiful, but not private. Very near the Gabi Bar and you could see all the beach lounge chairs, etc. Because of how we had ours set up, it felt like our own private oasis.

I promise to get you pics ASAP.

    • 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.
