Thats a good idea, thanks!! Your wedding is just around the corner. I can't believe it is almost May. How are the final plans coming along?


~ Question about registering... When did or will you register? Our wedding is just 8 months away, and with my internships I am guessing showers will not be until late October or November-ish. Just wondering how far in advance did you all register?

About registry, I initially didn't want to register anywhere esp since ppl are flying all the way to MX. But my inlaws insisted that I register on one as many of them will not be able to make it so I registered in honeymoonwishes.com

 

The Fiance and I bought a place together in 2007 so we basically have all household stuff so we thought the honeymoon registry was the best option for us. We plan to go to Italy in Oct for two weeks.

 

We are not even publicizing the registry, the registry info only shows in our website and I have specifically asked ppl who are attending not to give us a gift as their presence will be gift enough. with that being said, ppl still found out abt it and last few weeks we have been getting quite a few things from the registry.

 

Sammysgirls - good advice on the spa thing, I just booked all ours today.

We hadn't planned on registering, mostly since we plan on moving back to Denver soon, and we have no space right now, but people have asked so we're registering for honeymoon $$. I think we're using honeyfund.com. We haven't done it yet though- so we probably should get on it!

 

**so funny Samira- I was typing this the same time as you! I will check out your site too, since we haven't decided yet. Any reason that you chose them? And we too, are going to Italy for ours! We're waiting a bit, because of the move. I can't wait to hear about your trip!!

Wedding plans are coming along okay, just wrapping up last minute details and getting things in order for our AHR which is June 5th. We've just had a lot of really stressful family drama surrounding the wedding in the past week so I am just so worn out mentally and emotionally!

Sorry for all the stress Sammysgirl...I know it's probably hard but try to enjoy this as much as you can!

 

Question for those of you who had your legal ceremony before RPRM- what should the bride wear to such an event? We are having ours very small at the church with only a few people (parents basically) and then we're going to a nice dinner afterwards. Thoughts?

Thanks for the advice girls! Family is already asking about showers and registry even though I tell them their gift is just celebrating with us; they don't listen. I definitely agree about not posting it anywhere, so those who are not insisting on buying a gift, might actually just do what we say and not get anything :).

 

vlvetter7- Well, we are doing ours at the courthouse before hand and very informal so I was thinking even just jeans and a sweater (I want this just to be the paperwork before hand and not seem real at all)... But for a church wedding, I'd same maybe find just a cute dress (even white) that you might where to like your rehearsal dinner?? Just so it doesn't feel as bridal as your wedding dress but a little wedding feel to it.

Jen-We registered sometime in Feb at Crate and Barrell and still have to register somewhere else b/c I barely have anything on there. I like most of you didn't want/need to register but everyone said I should or I'd get things I didn't want. No one knows we are registered yet so you could do it now before you leave for you internship and that way it is done.

 

Sammysgirl-I'm so sorry you are stressed out and can't enjoy this. It really can dampen the whole experience!

 

vlvetter-I think you can wear whatever you want. I've seen other pictures of girls that wore a cute dress or nice pants and top. I think it depends on how you want to feel on that day.

Jannae - I went with honeymoonwishes becuase the reviews were good there was a site which compared honeymoon site and fees etc, and honeymoonwishes seemed like the best deal. Plus it was very easy to set up literally took 30 mins to set up the registry. We leave for Italy Oct 16th and I will def share details. just incase if u want to check out my registry for ideas below find the link.

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
