I thought I would share my attempt at a DIY video project. Hereâ€s a little background on the idea before you view the video…


I went to a destination wedding a few years ago and my friend (who will be at my DW) did OOT bags. I was trying to think of a different thank you gift for guests because I felt like I should do something other than what she did. Long story short, I decided to send out a pre-cruise care package. Iâ€m going to make a few of the awesome DIY projects I have found here (welcome books and luggage tags) and wrap them up and mail them out to guests about a month before we sail on our cruise.


I was trying to think of a way to let them know we are sending them a thank you gift via mail, mostly so I will know if someoneâ€s gets lost. I came up with the idea of putting together a “thank you†video using Windows Movie Maker. Itâ€s was so much fun to do and pretty easy once you learn the ins and outs of the program. Iâ€m attaching a rough draft version of the video…I have about 4 months left to play with it so Iâ€m sure it will change between now and then! If anyone has questions on how I did it please let me know! Iâ€m totally willing to help out if anyone likes the idea. Iâ€ve never posted a link or attachment before so I hope this works!!!

    • 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.
