SunBride's AHR reviews and advice (UPDATED with link to our dance)

Recommended Posts

Oh, the other thing I thought was neat is that your AHR decorations matched your wedding decor! That way it was an extension of your wedding... and people can feel like they're a part of it!

Will you post pics of you and your hubby?

Did you have your honorary bridesmaids wear something special or how did you honor them? I am trying to figure that out.

Did you make your slideshow/video yourself?

Brings a BIG SMILE to my face to read that you married a down home BATHURST boy! I went to BHS myself for a year, but them we moved to Campbellton - the name should sound familiar, as you would have through it, but it was only 1 exit on the highway 11).

My husband actually lived (and his family still lives) in Dunlop, just outside Bathurst. But he went to École Secondaire Nipisguit. I know the area pretty well as I've been there to visit 3-4 times a year for the past 5 years.

Yes they all wore matching dresses. Just something they found for 35$ at the mall. I didn't post pictures because, I don't know, thought it would be weird if somebody they know sees the pictures or something! I know I posted pictures from the wedding but that was the wedding, much more important pictures! These are not professional pictures or anything. I only have one picture of me and my husband, with our dog! We didn't bother taking any others as we are wearing our wedding clothes and have a zillion wedding pictures so no point. I will add the pic of our dog to the first page though right now, along with a couple other photos of some of the details.

The video is the one in my signature, done by playaweddings.com. The slideshows I did them myself with windows movie maker. Nothing fancy, just very basic. The hard part was choosing only like 100 wedding photos to put in the wedding slideshow!

And yes, the decorations were mostly the same, didn't want to spend a lot of money so I reused the same stuff as much as possible. The centerpieces were new, and I had ordered way more tulle specifically for the AHR.

Now wait...I know what you're thinking... you don't want your wedding reception in the garage BUT it will be nicest and cleanest garage ever - brand new, painted all white, and I won't drive a car into it before the party".

How could I say no to that?

In his speech my dad said "first thing tomorrow all this frilly little tulle is getting pulled down and I'm turning this place into a man's dream garage". Sure enough, he didn't waste any time. He was so excited to set it all up once the party was done!

Just printed what I wanted on vellum paper, then cut it to the size of the vases and glued it on.

I did a few samples on plain white paper first to get all the writing where I wanted.

I love the pics of the planning- beautiful... I didnt read through everything... But I have to say.... Coming from a professional ballroom teacher- you did VERY well at the dance. The 1/2 moons in cha cha cha looked really good. and the end w/ the flips and the dip were awesome! Nice JOB!

    • 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
