PANIC
OMG I totally just realized that I forgot to talk to you about the Rock the reception thing!! How could I forget?!! I think it's so worth it cause it'll be the highlight of the night! We were planning on doing the same but we don't have coreographers in my end of the country!! You need to get a video!!

Eek! I just realized my first bridal shower is in 2 weeks!! I need to find something to wear for that and our legal ceremony on St. Patrick's day.

 

And I am less than 2 weeks away from paying for everything at the Resort, I can't believe it's that close.

UM yeah- we had to pay our balance for the trip on Friday! Crazy stuff!

WE made a make-shift asembly table on our dining room so that I can see everything that needs to be completed and FI finally realized that there is a lot to do!

Invites should be in this week and will be sent out next week! (only sending them to people who booked)

Need to print out AHR invites also!

And the list goes on!

I'm not alone!
Knowing that.. I feel better and motivated.

 

I have...

  • applied for Melanie's passport (my 5 month old baby)
  • ordered my dress
  • sent STD magnets
  • created wedding website
  • decided what will be in the OOT bags
  • paid for airline tickets
Most important so far... Picked the right guy and joined BDW for some help and much needed guidance.

I'm feeling a little stressed especially when I look at the ticker in my siggy and it says I have less than 2 months...so exciting and nerve racking at the same time!!

 

Things I have left to do are..

 

mail notarized documents

book caterer for AHR (we're having it april 25th) eeek

decide what MC will say during AHR

decide on structure/timeline of AHR

dress fitting (this week)

buy body tape (so dress sticks to skin)

re-count supplies and favors for OOT bags and make sure I've packed enough of them.

re-pack OOT stuff into a suitcase that I can fold into another one (so I don't have to pay for a 2nd suitcase on the way home!

 

We're getting down to the wire! This thread is great for reminding me of what I need to do.

Wowsers... yeah I definitely have been avoiding this thread, but I guess it is high time I kick our to-do-list in high gear.

 

I will say this, the Fi has been oh so helpful in getting some things done.

 

Wedding stuff we still need to do:

Get bridesmaids dress order finalized (yeah, they still haven't placed their orders)

Buy bridal accessories (jewelry, hair/veil stuff, purse, petticoat etc.)

Finalize guest count (need to follow-up on over 100 RSVP cards that haven't been sent back... sheesh people, it already has a stamp on it!)

Buy guest book

Schedule dance lessons for first dance

Find a hair stylist/make-up artist on location

Buy sand ceremony kit

Insure engagement ring

Take engagement photos (I swear, we'll be married before we take a single engagement picture... lol)

Oh, and probably the biggest thing -- FIND A WEDDING GOWN! No pressure.

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
