The Date - any reasons why you picked that certain day?

agreed - i like our wedding date to be special on it's own. i would have picked a date like our first date or the day we met or something, we just don't know those. i am SO not an "anniversary" person when you're dating - lol. i wouldn't want our wedding date to be shared with a birthday or any other holiday - since something always would have to be compromised - either the birthday or the wedding anniversary!

We picked 8/3/07 because we were wanting to get married right before school started again (for my nephews)....and after everyone's normal summer events.


We picked a Friday because we went to a wedding in PDC in July, on a Saturday, and everyone had to leave to come home the next morning, and we wanted everyone to have a chance in enjoy/relax the day before they had to go home.

This thread made me chuckle.


We got a lot of credit from our guests for having picked Veteran's Day (it made things very easy for everyone who had kids, etc.).


Truth is - we had no idea. We were shooting for September - then October - nothing available? Ok - anything in November? Great.


Worked out well - though - weather was great, too. Plus - 11/11/11 will be our 5 year anniversary. Makes it easy to remember (sometimes I forget how old I am so I have to actually do the math - sad, I know).

    • 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.
