    Hey Jesse!! Thanks so much for the wonderful planning thread! I hope you are still active on the forum (I see your wedding was 2 years ago) because I have a couple of questions:

    ~Did you pick your menu before you got to the resort? I was wondering how I was going to make menu cards ahead of time because I did not have a menu.
    ~Your CD cases are lovely! I have been looking for something outside of the standard plasic jewel case. Where did you get these?
    ~When was the first time you met with the judge/officiant?

    Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge and inspiration!

      Bride Loving CJ-
      Thank you for all the wonderful compliments.
      I can't belive it's been so long since the wedding, I had so much fun planning it. Now, I'm expecting my first born in September (Gender unknown and fyi if it's a boy his nickname will be CJ). So I'm excited about that now!

      Ok down to your questions...

      ~Did you pick your menu before you got to the resort? I was wondering how I was going to make menu cards ahead of time because I did not have a menu.

      **** I chose my menu before the wedding, about a month in advance. Everyone was served the same thing so it wasn't difficult to create the cards ahead. Just print, cut and paste on Card Stock. Lots of cutting and pasting! lol

      ~Your CD cases are lovely! I have been looking for something outside of the standard plasic jewel case. Where did you get these?
      I was very proud of the CD's. Between the CD holders and the easels to hold them on, it looked like I spent a fortune. I bought the plain white CD holders at Favor warehouse on sale. I decorated them with my monogram, satin ribbon, and printed the song list on vellum paper. The hardest part was punching the hole on the side for the ribbon, the rest was easy!


      ~When was the first time you met with the judge/officiant?
      I met the pastor via email and a follow up phone call when I arrived. Nice man, he's been living in Punta Cana as part of a Christian Mission group. He performed the ceremony in English. Speaks both english and spanish.

      HOpe this helps, let me know if you need anything else!

      Thanks,
      Jessy

        Is Favor Warehouse an online store or is local to you?
