Hello, Looking for October 2008 Brides out there. Where are you in planning. I'm starting to get anxious because I've only got one year left to plan!!!

I'm actually a November 2009 bride but close enough. Right now we have picked a date and that's about it. We're researching different resorts in the Riviera Maya area but since we can't book anything yet we haven't made a final decision.

Heya,

I'm also October 09 bride. We've already started planning. We booked at Azul Sensatori departing on September 29th (wedding date is Oct. 3rd). Because we're having a massive reception when we get back, we had to make some progress on the planning front there too.

 

Basically all we've done is select / book a resort, schedule our wedding day, create a wedding website, and design our boarding pass invitations.

 

When are you getting married? Have you decided on a location?

 

So far I have been enjoying the planning. Hopefully that won't change.

 

I think you can never plan too early. But with DW's you don't always need to plan far ahead either since it's a little more casual.

 

:) Welcome.

I'm an October 2009 bride ; ) We will be getting married on 10-24-09 in Playa del Carmen. We have booked our reception venue (Kool Beach Club), church, and our photographer (Elizabeth Medina).

 

Good Luck with your planning!

I am in the same boat as you cdc0427! We are getting married October 24, 2009 and have NOT booked anything yet. My fiance and I are going to PV in 2 weeks to scout out possible venues. I will post info as soon as I return!

Well, I did reserve Riu Caribe for October 30, 2009. I wanted a Saturday but they were all booked.

I did figure out the colors. Burnt orange, wine and a touch of yellow. Imagine those colors while getting married at sunset. I'm so excited!!

I've made a rough draft of my STDs but I'm waiting on my sister in law to make me a monogram.

 

Let's make ourselves timelines or something, keep us all on track.

 

After you all pick a location, what's next on your timeline?

I do like the idea of a timeline.

 

I picked colors...yellow even thought I know that is a summer color I am going for it haha!

MAK and MissLucky7Bride- I'm getting married October 24, 2009, too! We are date triplets!

 

We have booked our wedding date at the resort, booked a TA to help with travel arrangements, made a website, bought my dress, and started to design our invitations. That's really it! I've been in contact with the photographer we are hoping to book but haven't actually booked yet.

 

Our next plan of action is STDs and invitations. I don't know if we should send STDs now and then send more travel information with the invitations, or if we should send travel info with the STDs.

Hello there.

Another October 2009 bride there.

We picked a place - Riu Palace Las Americas, we picked a date. Awaiting to confirm the date with hotel - waiting for the airfare to come out in November.

Since we're having a very small wedding, we're doing it in the middle of the week. Which will give us some time to relax after wards.

That's pretty much it for planning.

I've been looking at tons of pics online (well...here I mean :)) for bouquets, photographers.

cdc0427 - I really like your idea of colors - orange, wine and yellow... I may add pink to the bouqet.

 

I'm not going to do official invitations or save the date cards. But I do like the idea of monogram. My FI promised to create it.

 

Oh - and I got THE DRESS! :)

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
