January 2009 Brides Post Here

Recommended Posts

Connie, funny you posted your real name because I was wondering that yesterday!

Nice work on the entertaining instead of moving. Sounds like a plan.

 

Good luck tomorrow! It IS exciting... even if it isn't your real day. Bill and I had fun, and can't believe how official it is!!!

Welcome back Nicole!! Sounds like you're pretty busy!!! Make sure you make some time for us though!! LOL

 

YAY Connie (finally a name! lol)....congrats on your legal day today!!! Oh...and to add your name to your siggy, just go to userCP, edit signature & then just put your name wherever you want it to show up.

 

I have been popping my head in most of the weekend, but I haven't really had a chance to post anything. My mom got here on Friday & we've been go-go-go ever since. But I'm so glad...my once page long to do list is now cut in half!! I'm so excited!! So, this weekend I accomplished:

- my second & final dress fitting (she just has to fix the cups & then steam it) I pick it up on Wednesday. (I will post pics in my planning thread!)

- welcome books are finished!! That was probably the biggest task! But they are now done finally & I LOVE THEM!!!

- I picked up the few things I needed like luggage locks, outlet adaptor, self tanner (just in case), batteries, tank tops (for iron on transfers), air freshener (in case of musty room!)

 

FI is heading out today to clear up a few other things we/he need(s) done!

 

The rest is my personal things...hair, nails, waxing, tanning...and I am off on Wednesday to take care of all of that. Oh...and I have to send out the pre-travel email to my guest & finish my planning thread!

 

WOOHOO!! Only 6 more sleeps!!!

We leave in 2 days!!! I'm starting to feel totally overwhelmed!

 

I pick up my dress tonight so worse case scenario, if it's ruined, I can try to find one tomorrow. That surely won't happen.....

 

I'm drawing a total blank on the Welcome Letters for the OOT bags and every template I try to open from the DIY forum, is saying I don't have enough points!!! Ahhh...

 

I need to start packing and get our house/animals ready to have our pet sitter/friend come over.

 

Originally I had planned to work all day today and tomorrow but I'm going to take a half day tomorrow so I can go get my nails/toes/eyebrows done.

 

It just doesn't even seem real. I think that's why I'm procrastinating even more than usual. I'm stuck in a fog just frozen- like my brain is turned off. (it is Monday though!) Anyone else feeling like this? I know there is so much for me to do but I just can't seem to just DO IT!

 

Help!

Yay Becky!!! You are so close now!! WOOHOO!

I know what you are saying...it still just doesn't seem real! Take a deep breath...relax. I started delegating stuff - is this an option?? I am very controlling (yes, I admit it!) When it comes to doing things I like to do them myself so that I know they are done right (or at least to my liking!). I had to give this up & delegate - there comes a point when you just can't get it all done yourself! If there is anything you need from us, be sure to let us know!!

I am not sure we are right at the front...my TA might have booked it that way - she did this for us. I am sitting beside my MOH and my hubby ...in seats 6a, 6b and 6c. So i would think that is fairly close to the front.
Got the shuttle prob sorted out too i think...my TA guarantees me that there will be a shuttle to pick us up at 4. We will confirm this again upon check in.
I got to thinking and I actually don't have too much to do ...pick up dress, get some jewellery, make last cd, make itinerary, finish tanning and get my nails done. Most of my packing is already done so I am sitting in good shape :)
Get those bubba kegs primed up for good use!!! *lol* a drink or two might not hurt.
Hey Chicklet,

That's awesome you got seat selection. We did too. I am sitting in 6a, 6b, 6c. It looks like I am sitting on your lap. LOL!

    • 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!!
