i wore a veil, and we did the twist and tuck for the ceremony - it worked ot just fine, and it was easy to untuck and let it blow in the breeze immediately after, it wasnt uncontrolably windy on our day at the gazebo either.

 

veils are sometimes very delicate, and i would worry about a pin putting a hole in it! especially if you have to wear it again at your AHR like i have to .....

Carolina!!!  I am so excited for you.  It's already almost time for your wedding?!?!  Time flies doesn't it?  I can't wait to hear all about it and see pictures.  You are going to be such a gorgeous bride. 

 

I am so torn on the veil idea now.  I never, I repeat, never wanted a veil.  I could never justify spending so much money for a simple piece of mesh or tulle.  Besides, I thought it hid the train.  Now, after seeing a few different kinds, and now that my wedding is approaching, the thought keeps looming around that I will only get this one chance.  And now I feel like I might want one.  Ahhhh, i just want to save money and I keep finding more things I want to spend.  There is this gorgeous lace edged cathedral length veil with one of the newer Sottero & Midgley gowns. 

 

Anywho, I just noticed that dreams updated their photo gallery, and there are some new pics of the gazebo.  One is a view of then gazebo from the new terrace.  Very nice!  

 

Back to student teaching and no life  HAHA!

1. Veil: I also started not even wanting a veil, now I'm going crazy for the birdcage veils, then I wanted cathedral, now I want fingertip.  How to choose???  I'm not trying to spend more $$$ either, checking out recycledbride.com, some good deals there!

 

2.  Omgosh you guys, 4weeks??? That's nothing!!! I'm sooo excited for you!!!! Please take lots of pics and share with us!

 

3.  Thanks for the heads up on the new pics Chris...umm...what's up with the gazebo pic (5th pic from left top row).  That looks AMAZING...and yet I've never even seen those chairs used EVER on a wedding!  Soooo photoshopped.  Would it be too much to ask for them to REALLY make it look like that? Gorgeous!

Hi everyone. This is a little off topic but I need some help. I really want to wear high heels with my wedding dress and for the ceremony thats fine, but I am wondering what to do when taking pictures in the sand and by the lighthouse on the rocks...I don't want to kill myself trying to walk. I would prefer to not wear flip flops but maybe should to be practical. Whats everyone else doing?

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
