May 2009 Brides

Recommended Posts

Why on earth did I think that it was a good idea to get married after tax month? I run my own business and April is possibly going to take me out! Whoops.

However, I love may so much, both FI and I have our birthdays in May right before the wedding.

I just firmed up my timeline. In Playa del carmen we have to have a civil ceremony and it was really important to me to have a spiritual ceremony so my timeline looks like this

 

10am-civil ceremony-immediate family only

11:30-Hair...this can take up to 3 hours I have heard so I booked it early so I could take my time getting ready

4pm- Beach ceremony

4-5:30 photos

6pm-dinner

 

I am getting very excited...however my dress is far too small and can't be let out..so I am off to the gym!

anyone have any idea how to save your wedding website?

 

mine is only good til august then it'll go bye bye. i put a lot of work into my website too and want to save it somehow. i don't think screen shots will work cuz you'd miss some of the screen due to having to scroll. is printing my only option?

I was thinking of saving it in Word. From the File menu you select "Edit with Microsoft Word. Everything shows up in Word regardless if you can see it on your monitor. No scrolling issues. :>

 

Otherwise, I can use our screen capture software called snag it at work. It captures everything on the page in the screenshot including stuff you would have to scroll to normally see on your monitor.

In the "edit" menu, you should have an option "save page as", then if you choose, "html page complete", or "webpage, complete", it will save the page on your hard drive as is, and put all the files (pics, etc) into a folder. You can do this for each page.

It works on both IE and Firefox.

It depends who your wedding website provider is. Ours is weddingwindow.com and they have an option to buy a DVD disc of your webpage so that you will have it forever along with your other wedding keepsakes. Pretty cool!

Alright so I suffered a mild but annoying anxiety attack in the middle of the night last night because I realized how very close everything is, and how very little I've actually accomplished.

 

Here's what my to-do list looks like right now:

 

- Wedding bands: Need to be paid for and picked up

- Need 2 large suitcases (can borrow one from Gen if needed)

- Bra for me for under wedding dress

- Gift for Sissi (starfish necklace and earrings $22 + $3 shipping possibly from BDW girl)

- Colin's clothing (pants/shirt)

- Mark's BM clothing (pants/shirt)

- Sash for Gen's dress to match Mark's shirt (being made)

- Speakers for iPod

- OOT bag contents (Have: 10 Bags, 6 Sudoku books, 10 pashminas, 10 water bottles, 10 Spanish for Dummies books, still need first aid kit stuff, crossword books, OOT contents for Sissi, kid stuff, post-it notes, pencils/pens, playing cards, etc.)

- Need to write welcome letter and resort info

- Beach bag for Gen, monogrammed ($15 from Etsy), plus "extras" for her because she's MOH and done so much for me already...

- Hair cut and redo streaks - Appointment made for April 25th with Karine

- Get nails done - Appointment made for May 1st

- Colin hair cut at least 1 week before leaving date

- Extras for decoration if there are any needed (cake topper/table at dinner)

- Call the airline to ensure traveling with my dress is alright and find out how they plan to carry it on board (some people have issues with airlines wanting to shove the dress into the overhead !!)

- Make sure everyone has their tickets at least 2 weeks before leaving date

- Make sure Spooky (my cat) has enough pills/both have enough food wet and dry/bring cats to parent's place a few days before leaving.

- Gift for parents ... unknown!

- Gift for Colin - BD shoot may be in jeoprady so I have NO idea what to do instead (date I had planned to do it isn't going to work out and I am seriously running out of time.)

 

And this is what I've accomplished so far:

- Ordered flower girl dress $120 online

- Wedding shoes for Mandy

- White flip-flops for my walk from the room to the beach for the ceremony

- Bouquet starfish

- Wedding jewelry Mandy/Gen (gift for Gen)

- Garter

- Wedding dress alterations (next appointment April 11th, final should be April 24th)

- Bought sashes to decorate chairs at wedding location

 

OMG It stresses me to look at that.

    • 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
