February 09 Brides

Recommended Posts

I hear you, that's all that I'm thinking about. However, my brain is going on overload because of all of the projects I have left to do. I don't want to leave them until last minute, so I'm trying to get them done now.

yikes! Today it sort of sunk in that we are less than four months to the big day and I have sooooo much yet to do!! Was out shopping for a christmas party dress today and realized I still don't have any shoes for the wedding!! I think I will spend tomorrow making lists - I feel really unorganized right now!

 

108 days to the big day!

Jenn-I am right there with you.* I spent the entire day today searching for a very creative theme for my luggage tags and all the other goodies that I want to put in my welcome bags.* My problem is, I live in a small town that does not have anything but a wal-mart.* Thats right no Michaels, Craft Stores nothing.* So after strolling down every aisle in the famous wal-mart I left with nothing and started once again looking on line to find something that isn't as creative as I wanted to be but will work.* I am working on it right now and I will upload a picture after they are done.* I just feel like there is so much to do, so little I know about this entire process and so many questions that others need answered.* A list would probably be a very good thing to do tomorrow as well.

I always feel better after making lists!! Of course, when I see how big it is, it can be a little disheartening, but it feels good to at least get everything down on paper.

 

If you search on here, Becks posted a great to-do list in excel that you can use to check off stuff you've done and keep you on track, time wise.

Thanks for the tip on the message in a bottle website Jennifer! I ordered my supplies this weekend and can't wait to get them! We are purchasing additional on board credit for our cruise guests. I'm going to make up a certificate explaining the additional credit and put them in the bottles. I also loved your idea about the coconut oil! So fun!

We finished the first batch of our DIY luggage tags this weekend. I'm so excited to see things starting to come together!

Glad we could help! We loved how they turned out. I brought in the invites to work to hand out and the whole office smelled of coconut and everyone loved it. Your guests will be thrilled. It is nice to see it all coming together we have 1/2 of our luggage tags done I am waiting to order more holders based on our RSVPs and I have started our welcome book. I bought photo albums at walmart for $1 and now we are printing info about the resort, mexico and attractions etc and putting them in the photoalbum. smile35.gif I need to dig up my list for what else we can work on. The big things I need to buy is my shoes and earrings since I have my dress fitting on dec 10th I want to bring some options to see what I like.

This thread has been pretty quiet!

 

We are taking FI's suit to be altered this weekend. Still need to find him shoes. Are your men wearing sandals or dress shoes? I picked out a wedding band this weekend and I'm so excited about it! I didn't think we would find one that went well with my ering. I get to pick it up tonight! Yay!

    • 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.
