I know, that's why I have to have somebody else read it! I can't make it through it without tearing up, so I know I definately won't be able to do it when I'll probably already be crying. I've been looking for a way to incorporate my best friends mom into the mix (her family has been like a second family to me, and more members of her family are coming to the wedding than mine!), so I think I'll have her do it. I know it would mean a lot to her too. I just love this poem because its so real and not 'fairy tale'.

Kelly- The poem is PERFECT. I think it will be an amazing emotional touch to your ceremony!!! I love the idea of incorporating your best friends mom. We're in the same boat, I grew up with my BF and our parents are best friends. A TON of her family is coming to our wedding - LOVE IT!

Lisa- I love the idea of the flower ceremony! I've never heard of that before!

 

Kelly- I also really love the poem! That would be so nice to have your BF's mom read it too!

Girls- I think after much going back and forth I decided to do the resort photog. Juan Carlos. Do any of you know how far in advance you're supposed to book him, or do I assume that because he works for the resort he's available?

 

I feel like I havent done much for the wedding lately and I just got nervous about it :)

 

Thanks!

Josie - I'm not sure which package you booked for but I got the caprice package and it includes photography so I am assuming I don't have to book it, maybe when you talk to the wc a couple months before the wedding just let her know if you are wanting just what your package includes for pictures or if you will want more.

 

If you find out otherwise let me know.

hmmmm, i think i booked the royal? i booked the middle package that included stuff for up to 50, they told us if we had more than 50 we'd have to upgrade to the next best package which i think is caprice. we might have to do that based on our guest list- but not sure yet!

Josie- I was wondering the same thing! Do we actually have to reserve the photographer, or do we just assume that he's available since he works with the resort?

Hey girls-I got the Royal package because I should just have around 30 guests. I think that we just assume he is going to be there. I haven't heard of any of the previous RPRM brides having to book him in advance. I think he is just included in the package. I still haven't heard from the resort about the plans for my wedding sad.gif They did tell me that they would contact me a couple months before. I only have 2 months 11 days now! Wow, how time flies by!

    • 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.
