thanks! my dress was definitely NOT what i thought i was going for ... i was looking for something MUCH more casual, but that one made my mom cry! and i told my girls they could get short dresses just off the rack somewhere and save money, but they chose to go to david's and get long dresses. the whole formality level of my wedding just took a leap!

Whew, Ok I think I am almost done with the major tasks!

 

I ordered my dress last week, it is the total opposite of what I thought i wanted, but I just love it and on top of that I found a chapel length veil that I absolutely love...a little much for the beach but I don't care!

The bridesmaid dresses are picked out and will be ordered next week. Dinner, flowers and my bookings are taken care of so I just have flights, oot bags and invitations left to do!

 

Oh and I need to lose about 40 lbs so I had better get moving on that too!

Overall things are FINALLY starting to move smoothly!

 

ETA: whoops, maybe I need to get my marriage certificate too...for some reason that one keeps slipping my mind!

Woo hoo, got some updates to my list!! Finally found BM Dresses! I love them :) See pic below! What do you girls think? Also I need some advice on what color to order my flower ribbons in. I think I want my ribbon to be white, the corsages for the mom's in white because it will go with what they wear, for the BM, GM & Groom, I think I would like the ribbon to be teal so they pop ot from what they are wearing but the flowers are white and fuschia, would that look ok? Here's a picture of the flowers (al white orchids instead of white & green) - help please :)

Good job on your planning! Question, does teal go with anything else in your color scheme? Does it match the BM and Groom? I think it might be a little odd if it doesn't fit the overall color scheme... If you want a color to pop, I think I would do with green. It will match the stems and look natural but still stand out against a white shirt or khaki suit (not sure what the guys are wearing). That's just my two pesos!

    • 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.
