Thanks for all your posts ladies! Happy New Year!! Congrats-
I have been worrying about this since we booked our trip! I meant to buy a strapless bathing suit, but didn't. So, I plan on tying mine in way that will work and then untying it if I lay out. I did buy a couple of strapless sundresses so hopefully that helps. I'm bringing self tanner and bronzer just incase I need to touch any areas up. We will be in Mexico for 5 days before the wedding and I tan really fast. So, I'm screwed! lol My FI also burns like crazy so I'm spraying him with spf 50 all over until we are married! Hopefully tan lines are the only thing we need to worry about while we're in our destinations!

Oh my goodness! We leave Wednesday morning, and it's all hitting me - RIGHT now. :

 

Tomorrow is legal day!!! In addition to that I have to: print welcome packet; PACK; run a million errands; tan; and stay sane!! I'm SO SO SO excited that it's not even funny. :)

 

Bachelorette party was last night! Pics to come...it was SO much fun!!!

 

Hair trial was today, and I will try to post pics later tonight. I have a "to do" list for tonight, and I'm just now starting @ 10pm...oopsies. I just made some coffee!

 

Also, I really had a goal to post a planning thread before we leave because that's one of my favorite aspects of BDW...hopefully (fingers crossed) I can work that in!

 

Wow.....I really feel like I'm walking around in a fog! Where did all of the time go? Oh, and I'm all for keeping up this thread post-January!!!!

No power outages or floods for me - we lucked out I guess. The majority of the power outages are about 2-3 hrs from me. But the flood zones range from about 15-45 mins away - that's pretty scary. They were paddling canoes down the main streets!!

I've been thinking about starting to pack too - I think I might get a start on it this weekend!! I think that's when its going to get REAL!!!

Nothing can ruin this calm I'm floating around in right now. lol But seriously WTF! Oh, and she's freakin 38... don't people outgrow that stage by 38? :)
OMG...what's wrong with her!!?? Seriously!!

My FSIL was actually nice enough to ask me if she could have braids for the wedding - I told her no first...but then changed my mind & said if that's how she was most comfortable down there then go for it! (that's why they love me so much!! lol)

That's a great idea Kelly!!! I have to add that to my list! This has been a concern of mine since we booked too! All of my bikinis (minus one strapless) are halter - and my dress is wide regular straps. I don't even think the strapless will help since my dress is low cut. I am tanning before we go so hopefully that will help - plus I plan on packing on the sunscreen and undoing the straps when I bake on the beach!! lol

I'm so excited for you Nicole!!! When are you back??

I know what you mean about the planning thread. I think I'm going to start getting mine organized now. I have a busy weekend ahead of me apparently!! Good thing FI is working all day & night on Saturday - it will give me a chance to get a bunch of stuff done!

 

My biggest task this weekend I think is designing & putting iron-on transfers on shirts/tanks. I'm going to buy the full printable sheets at Michaels. Has anyone had any experience with these?? Will they work on ribbed tanks?? I wasn't planning on doing shirts for everyone - but I think I might do MOB, FOB, MOG, FOG, etc. if I can find super cheaps tees. I'm also looking for a funny type shirt for FI since he has already made it perfectly clear he is NOT wearing a groom shirt! But I have designed one that says "GROOM...Dead man walking" and it has a ball & chain on it!! I think he might wear that one...anyone have other ideas?? I also think I"m going to do the BM with green circle & lightening bolt like on You, Me & Dupree for the best man. I hope he's seen the movie! LOL

Hmm...what else. Oh...I have to finish up my welcome books...still!! I think I'm going to get a quote from a printing & binding place through work. I'm good friends with our senior buyer who deals with all of our suppliers so she going to try & find a place to do them for cheap!! woohoo!! I love connections!! Then I just send them the file & they will come back to me done! That will be a HUGE thing checked off!!

I also want to check out how much it will be to get Bubba Kegs engraved - has anyone done this??

 

Well...that's enough out of me this morning!! hahaha...

 

Oh...does anyone know what happened to the rest of our January brides...I was going through this thread from the beginning and there are a lot of girls that don't post anymore. Hmmmm...its the BDW black hole I guess!! hahahaha

 

Have a great day everyone!!

Kate, have a fantastic day! This thread has been hopping in the last 24 hours!

 

I've come up with one little snag in my plans for the week. FI and I need to do the legal stuff and of course haven't scheduled it yet. Well, we leave Monday. I have to work every night this week except today and he has to work every day this week. So, there's no time we are both free to get freakin married! The only option would be for him to meet me quickly during his work day, but he's a plumber and there's no telling what he could've gotten into in the morning before he has to meet me or how dirty he'll be. eeewww smile120.gif We aren't making a big deal at all out of the legals, in fact, you girls are the only ones who even know about it, but if he could be clean when we do it, that would be great. So, I'm not sure how we're going to get this done.

Oh, one other thing. I want promises cheesy.gif from all of you that at some point you will do a planning thread, a review and fill out that thread about what we would and wouldn't do again. Those are my favorites and I would especially love to hear from my fellow January brides!

 

If you don't do them this will be me... crybaby2.gif... and you wouldn't want that, would you?! angel2.gif

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
