Nice, Jill, thanks!!

 

That's cool, Jess! There is so much to know about ins and people really need help figuring it all out & having it explained to them!

So, I'm out here for school; in a nurse practitioner program & getting my doctorate at the same time. I must be nuts. My DNP (doctor of nursing practice) classes start up on Tues and I'm a wee bit nervous about that.

 

 

For the wedding packages (ie Dreams Ultimate) do we not get any centerpieces at all? For some reason I thought they put candles on the tables, but I saw on the price list Jessica posted that there are decor packages we have to purchase to include candles, colored napkins, etc. (?) Guess I need to email Rebeca.

 

Oh, another question (from the price list) - does the DJ cost $590 for 3 hours? It can't be $590 per hour for 3 hours, can ithuh.gif

Rebeca mentioned to me that small votice candles are included. It sounds to me that just the floral is what is charged. She basically told me whatever she has to use, I can use at no charge, and whatever I bring, she will set up at no charge. I bit the bullet and am paying $55 per table for my centerpieces - small white rose bouquet in a vase. I figure i'm only having 4 or 5 tables, so that's not too bad. I'm bringing my own table runners and crystal dangling ornaments to put in the bouquet centerpieces. She also told me that I could use silver plate chargers for $2.5 each, but I think I'm prob passing on that also. I'm making menus that have silver and iridescent color to it, so that will bring color along with the table runner and crystals.

awesome Jill! Can't wait to see what you've put together!

 

oh, & Jess, I never answered your question -- so my program/s will be done about summer of 2011 and we want to move back around then I think. I get what you mean about winters there; pretty damn brutal and it's hard to beat the year-round sunny & 75 of SD! Paul used to live in Ocean Beach & I still can't believe he moved to Chicago for me! must've been love :)

 

yeah, $15 a chair is ridiculous, but they're so pretty. Still, I can't justify it.

 

So tonight we decided on getting Mexican Talavera tiles to use as our placecards. I ordered some samples to see how we like them. I'm hoping I can write names & tables on the back calligraphy-style. I've been wanting something like this for a while but didn't know exactly what it was I wanted 'til I saw the idea on the Etsy thread. I'm so excited to try & make them though - it'll be waaay cheaper.

I thought $15 per chair was pretty silly too! With almost 45 predicted guests the last thing I want to spend $675 on is chairs and like Jill said who will really remember the chairs!

 

And I think Rebeca said that for the centerpieces, the $55 is just for the flowers unless the candles are incorporate with the centerpiece, she sent me some pics where they were. But I could totally be wrong. I know she did quote me $80 for tealights around the pool, which to me is TOTALLY silly since I can buy 100 for $5 at Ikea. But I think I am going to suck it up for the $55 for the centerpieces since I don't see myself lugging stuff down there for the centerpieces and then wanting to lug it back.

 

Jill can't wait to see the pics of your welcome bags!! My fiance wants to wait to make them until we are down there so we don't have to carry all the stuff down there which is totally making me panic but I am going to see how I feel closer to the wedding!

I bought LED tealights on ebay because I am afraid that it will be windy and the real ones will just blow out. The place I bought them from has floating LEDs too. Really good prices too!

 

eBay Store - Six Star Sales: Wedding-Cristmas String LIGHTS, Battery String Fairy Light LED, Eiffel Towers Vases-All Extras

 

Karen - cute tile idea. I hope they turn out good!

 

Jessica - I would totally freak if we waited to make the bags when we got to MX. But I definitely think it can be done... buy bolsas, maracas and the other OOT junk then assemble. OK maybe I wouldn't freak it kinda sounds better than lugging 10 suitcases around.

    • 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.
