How did you give your WC 'instructions'?

Recommended Posts

Today is exactly 3 months or 90 days from my wedding - homestretch!!!!

 

So, I am getting all my decor and timing together - how did you communicate this to the WC?

 

Excel spreadsheet?

Powerpoint slides?

Pictures?

Word Doc?

 

Does anyone have any of these WC instructions 'day of' kind of things they would be willing to share with me or all of us?

 

Thanks Girls!

Alyssa

You could stand on a chair and yell really loudly through a bullhorn. LOL. Maybe that is a way to give good, clear instructions to the WC. Just yell the commands and end it with "Don't screw this up, or heads are going to roll!"

LOL! :)

All throughout, I've emailed her, called her, sent her pics, pdf pics, etc. We had two site visits so I even brought stuff with me to show her what I liked and how I wanted th set up to be. She has a good idea of what I want. The day of I think she knows what I'm going for and if not I will tell her straight up, That is great/not so good/etc! :)

^^ What is KWIM? I am so lost! LOL.
Hmm... maybe a spreadsheet/word doc is the best way to go so you can give it to him and then def go over it with him when you get there so he is clear on exactly what it is that you want. It will be perfect.
You have lovely hair, btw. :)

ok alyssa i know you are intense like me... here's what im doing to make sure everything goes right...

 

3 days before i leave, i am sending her an email with every photo and every detail outlined that we discussed. with specific instructions (in spanish for my planner so its easier for her), and then i am also printing out everything in color and putting it in a little binder for her which i will give her when i arrive on the wednesday before my wedding. i figure this way it will be safe, she will have it via email and in person to look at, and then i will go over everything in the binder with her so we are clear and in case she has any questions for me... other than that, my FMIL is going to be up her ass to make sure nothing goes wrong, so between me and FMIL, i think we're set ;-)

 

ooooh and i forgot to add, there will be photos of each person in the family and the bridal party so she doesnt forget who is who so she knows them by the time they arrive. i am even including the details for the ceremony that includes the other vendors and our priest so she is aware of a min-by-min play of whats supposed to go down, so that if anything seems to not be going according to plan she can do what she needs to do to make it work

    • 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!!
