Does anyone else qualify for the Its All About The Bride special? It was promoted May last year. After X amount of rooms you get $Y for upgrades and $Z towards resort charges. Just curious if anyone has actually gotten this deal yet. I am supposed to get $1500 towards upgrades, but with the hotel being full, I am wondering if I am SOL. Probably!

Any brides sign up after may2009? Did you qualify for any deals? I am thinking if they cannot honor Its All About the Bride, maybe I can ask for a different package.

Thanks!
I didn't think I qualified for this one b/c it was never listed as one of my promotions. Then suddenly it showed up on my details sheet last week that we have a $96 resort credit left over from the It's All About the Bride promotion. I don't even know what this promotion is! I know nothing about upgrade credits, but since we're all in the Deluxe rooms, there's nothing to upgrade to! Lol, unless they want to give us the Suite... wink.gif

Basically it's a sexy, lingerie, pin-up (or whatever you want to wear) photoshoot of you for your future husband. I did one in January with lingerie and I'm having my photographer put together a nice leatherbound book with inscriptions in it and it will be given to him on our wedding day by my MOH while he's getting ready. It's his wedding gift from me :)

A lot of us girls are doing it, it seems to be growing in popularity.
I was going to answer her question but you gave a much better explanation than I would have!

Are you sure you don't have a friend who can bring an extra suitcase for you with the vases you want? Like a real low maintenance guy who will ruck up with a carry-on only?

Shoot I am jealous. There is not a single fast food restaurant or chain store on this island except for a lone KFC that was brought in before they made the rules for no franchises.... I miss Starbucks! I bought that instant stuff over Xmas and its just not the same....

Yikes! Every place I've lived abroad at least had a few of the comforts from home for the days when I just needed something familiar and not so strange. That's interesting about the no franchise rule. Hopefully they make up for it in great local fare!

Ladies, I'm the saddest kid on the block right now... My photo did my BD book layout and gave me the link and password to access it online.

 

I spent about 5 hours one night making notes in the comment boxes below each page of what I wanted changed/added. I wrote an inscription and put some quotes and song lyrics on some pages. I put my heart and soul into it and really took the time to make it good.

 

I was really proud of it and did it about a month ago and just emailed my photog because I never got the updated online proof.

 

So I clicked "send changes" and it sent it off to him and I heard back from him today... there's NO info in there. He never got any changes and now I can't even remember what I said, quotes I used or any changes at all... I'm so upset, this is devastating ugh!

 

So I thought since so many of you girls have this shoot coming up, if you make any changes/inscriptions/quotes - keep a separate record of it just in case, I highly regret this now. frown.gif

oh sweetie sad.gif that sucks big time. i totally feel your pain (as I've done it with an online photo album where I'd uploaded pics, organised them in the order I wanted, picked the layout of all the individual pages and wrote comments on everything and the poxy thing crashed) not the same scale, but I know that awful feeling of spending all that time doing something and then the even more rubbish feeling when you realise you've got to do it again but you can't remember what you said the first time.

sending you lots of hugs and support.hug2.gif

Sending you some good thoughts right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Amy, Have a glass of wine. I always find I remember things and things become more clear once I've had a glass. That's a glass... things are completely the opposite with a bottle. But judging by the situation... I might recommend a bottle for tonight!

    • 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.
