We are writing our own vows, but haven't started yet. Ladies, I'm starting to freak out. I feel like I have so much to do. Who wants to come over and help? lol Or atleast drink wine with me! elefant.gif So, we had some of FI's friends book last minute. Now I am short 3 raffia fans for the ceremony and a few things for our OOT bags, not to mention now I'm one bag short. I'm annoyed that now I need to go look for these things again and buy more stuff.

I still have to:
wrap the fans with ribbon
make my MOH and BM tank tops (iron ons)
make our 'things to know before you go' brochure
make placecards and print the recipe for our favors (were doing starfish cookie cutters)
find FI a shirt!
find GM a shirt (I found one I like but can't find it in his size any where)
buy GM gift
book our wedding party excursion (we're heading to the jungle!) lol
order FI's ring
and decide if we're using a dj or our ipod!smile105.gif

Its going to be a busy couple of weeks. I need a drink!
Oh, and my dress fitting is Thursday night so I'll finally get to see it for the first time. Yay!elefant.gif

Hey ladies! Haven't been on here in a while - work is so busy its cutting into by BDW time, can't say I'm impressed! Anyways, things are getting done slowly but surely.

 

All of our guests have paid in full so we are looking at 49 people with the possibility that 4 more may book. So needless to say I'm short on guest favours and raffia fans...oh well, c'est la vie!

 

My FI and I went to the Dominican Embassy yesterday to process our documents and hand over the cash. $360 US ($450 CAD with the exhange rate being what it is)! Now we just sit back and wait until I have to go pick them up next week. Then we meet with our TA who will help us sort out all the details of the wedding ceremony next Thursday.

 

FI and I also picked and ordered our wedding bands yesterday. I haven't been able to make a decision about a diamond band for the life of me, and FI knew exactly what he wanted so we went ahead and ordered his. Then they told me I only had a week or so to decide on mine in order to make sure it was in on time. Instead of feeling rushed to pick a diamond band, I ended up ordering the matching band to my FI but in a ladies width. It is a gorgeous hammered white gold ring with a sandblasted finish in the middle....Hard to describe, but goes perfectly with my solitaire. I wanted a plain band and a diamond band, so the diamond band will have to wait until I can decide. All I care about is that I have a band I love for the ceremony. Yeah - such arelief! I was starting to stress.

 

Now I'm working on the Dominican Survival Kits (in lieu of loot bags). I can't beleive next month I will be a Mrs!!

Wow what a great thread. I am also getting married in January. I cannot believe how fast it comes! I am really excited. Its funny how you cross things off your list but then you just keep adding things and you never feel like you accomplish anything!

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
