January 2009 Brides Post Here

Recommended Posts

So I leave on Thursday morning and I'm feeling like I'm almost ready. I just re-packed all of my clothes for the trip. We're flying with Sunwing and their baggage restrictions are pretty nuts. We're only allowed to bring 2 bags each and neither can be more than 20lbs. Needles to say I just took all my clothes out of my fancy new suitcase and put it in a duffle bag. I managed to pack another 8lbs!

 

Here's what's still left to do:

 

Edit and print Meet the Guests

Print engagement photo of G and I for sand ceremony frame

Buy light colored underwear (x3) for dresses

Get tissue for OOT bags

confirm videotaping, buy tapes

buy and burn cd's for wedding music

pick up and ensure wedding bands

buy more votives

get manicure and pedi- Jan 12 - 8:00

hair trial Jan 13 - 5:30

get gifts for tips

distribute items for wedding party to bring

 

What am I forgettinghuh.gif??

I've been taking pictures as I go but I think I'm gonna have to post the planning thread when I get back. I might see if I have time but I'm leaving it optional so I don't stress.

In other news, today I'm moving all my stuff to our new condo where Graeme has been living since October! Yay!!!!!smile29.gif

Well, FH and I are in our final week; this time next week we will probably be at some bar/club in Miami celebrating with my closest friend (who we're staying with) before we board the cruise ship (1/1cool.gif!!

 

Today was my mini wedding shower; few people showed (weather wasn't great, plus it was at least a 2 hour drive for most invited guests) but I still had a great time!

 

I was able to get my nails and eyebrows done (won't need to do that during the week) before the shower.

 

We're still packing and doing laundry; trying to create our mega packing list to make sure we don't forget anything (like the rings!).

 

I still don't know how I want to wear my hair, and I'll probably wing it on the cruise ship, or use their salon.

 

I still don't know what photos I want the photographer to take, except for ones where "Thank You" and "We're/Just Married" in the sand (for thank you notes and wedding announcements). And, I'm thinking I will probably wing this project too.

 

Don't know if I feel ready... for the trip it self; not the wedding. It's kinda surreal to know that we leave in a week. hopefully this 'feeling' is only due to the hormones (for once I am happy Aunt Flow is here)... who knows.

 

Anyway, debating if I should do a planning journal as I don't really have anything to put into it since we're eloping... but, it looks like so much fun!

 

Hope everyone is having a great Saturday night!

My moving went really lame today. I have been moving stuff to our new place for a while already but I still had all my clothes at my parents house (where I've been living for the past bunch of years). Today I moved 3 laundry baskets of clothes and shoes and a computer desk. They're all actually still in FI's truck outside the condo b/c we decided to have friends over instead of moving.

 

In more exciting news, tomorrow morning we're getting legally married!!! I really didn't want it to be anything at all official (we're just signing papers with our pastor) but it does feel pretty exciting!

 

Now I just need to get some sleep!

    • 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
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
