Hello,

 

I haven't contributed much since joining but I just wanted to let you girls know that I have officially booked Azul Beach for March 26th 2011. Its going to be a big wedding and we got clearance prior to booking but the fiance and I just fell in love with the intimatness (I think I made that word up) during our site visit.

 

So far we have 34 rooms booked in about 3 weeks! I think I put the fear of god into my guests that the hotel was going to sell out if they didn't.

 

But I must say that reading through everyone's planning journals, reviews, etc has been amazing! Really helpful!

 

I am trying to get on the planning wagon now since we are 10 months our and i still don't have a dress but I am so excited!

Woo hoo another AB bride!! I'm so excited for you. And WTG getting 34 rooms booked! I tried to put the fear into my guests, but still only have 5 rooms booked (FI's parents still haven't even booked!)

Meredith - Multi-quoting is easy, just click MQ on the bottom of the post instead of Quote and click MQ on all the ones you want to respond to then click quote when you're ready!

 

Wendy - I totally thought of you when I was typing about the Mrs. Club, I was like... "I think Wendy will know what I'm talking about" haha, so nice to know I'm not the only cheesy one here LOL!

 

Lindz - I know I already BBM'd you my love of your engagement photos but the one in your siggy makes me feel so happy and warm inside, it's so obvious you two are so in love, I love pictures like that <3

Oh and Lindz regarding the BD book... my FI didn't really get it when I was telling him about it too. It doesn't matter, when he sees your hot photos, there will be ZERO confusion on the subject :)

 

I was hanging out with one of FI's groomsmen and my MOH on Saturday night and he was telling me that after Daylen was delivered his book by my Matron of Honor, she took him outside on the patio to look at it, he ran back inside to the boys and say... that book is the most AMAZING thing I've ever seen and you'll never see it... but it's incredible! He said he was just glowing, I love it :)

An official welcome4.gif to another AB bride!! We went there site unseen for our wedding but the intimacy of the resort is exactly what we'd hoped for. I too am seriously impressed that you have 34 rooms booked this far out. It's good you're putting the fear of God in them because the resort WILL sell out. Note to self, when we go back for our anniversary stay, don't make it during your wedding or we won't be able to get a room!

If you're trying to use them for your exit after you're pronounced husband and wife, I decided to use biodegradable confetti from save-on-crafts. You can get a bag of it for $4.99. I'm going to make petal cones and put the confetti in there for everyone to throw. Let me know if they let you use the sparklers tho.

Oh, and FYI my WC told me there's no such thing as the pool terrace for an event. She said I must be referring to Plaza Zavaz because it's close to the pool. Let me know if your WC told you something different.
I'm using the pool deck for my welcome reception. I don't know if they have a pool terrace but I do know they allow use of the pool deck.

And I'm going to be in New Orleans until Wednesday.

If you're really sure you want to do it that would be great! If you get overwhelmed I'll definitely have your back. Let us know what you decide.

Amy and Wendy!!! These stories are soooo sweet!!! I was literally in tears reading about your fi's reactions!!!!!!! I was telling my FI about your books and he seemed so confused...so now I am worried he won't even like mine sad.gif sad.gif sad.gif [/color]

I am sure your FI will love the pics! Don't get discouraged. I'm not sure about your FI, but mine is soooo uninterested in everything until he sees it or it's done without him. Then he gets on the bandwagon. Like you said, he just doesn't understand it all, yet.


UGH this is sooooo sad!!! I am SO sorry!!! I was having a bad day about the wedding bawling my eyes out...then I felt guilty. So I know how you feel, but it is STILL you wedding and STILL important. It's all relative...
Now in regards to invites...I can help you. I did passport invites AND pocketfold invites all by myself...They were not expensive at all. I have a fabulous paper store online (Card Stock, Vellum Paper, Envelopes, Metallic Cardstock, Invitation Cards   Specialty Wedding Stationery - Paperandmore.com) that is VERY reasonable. Let me know how I can help you!!! You can email me if you like: lindzhayz@gmail.com


I am definitely open to all the help I can get. I am actually interested in boarding pass invites and possibly doing a passport type welcome book (if I still feel ambitious). I know you are busy with your own planning though so I feel bad taking time away from that. I'll email you, maybe I can assist you in something you may need too.

Oh, don't you worry about your FI and the BD book. There's no way he could not like it. There isn't a man alive that wouldn't appreciate a gift like that, and coming from you who's such a hotty, I'm sure you'll take his breath away!
I agree, but I didn't see any pics....is that a privilege that I'm not allowed to have yet?! Lol.

That's what I meant, the pool deck. Is that different from Plaza Zavaz? My WC made it seem like they were in the same location.

What have you been doing here in N.O.? Need any recs for restaurants? Lindz may actually be better at recommending places than me though. embarrest.gif I had never been to the places she went when she came last month.

Hi ladies! You ladies are chatty - tough for me to keep up!!

 

I've only caught bits and pieces here and there, but CONGRATS to the new MRS!!!! I'll go back and get the details when I have a bit more time, but I just wanted to make sure I said that :)

 

I know that there's a few more newbies, but here's the list to date. Newbies, or anyone else missing from the list, please PM me with your wedding date if you want it added. It's tough for me to filter through pages and pages to find you! A PM sends me a direct email, so I can do it right away!

 

I'll check back with you ladies later!

    • 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!!
