I am going with a slightly vintage theme. We are eloping, so no wedding party, etc. My dress is an exact copy of a 1930's Harlow gown that I own. The original fits me and is beautiful, but not in good enough shape for the wedding. I have a friend that is applying for a masters degree in London for fashion history. ( she wants to work for a museum). She was a designer for Nordstrom for years and is making a pattern from the original. I own a vintage jewelry and accessories store, so I have all the jewels, etc covered.


I’ve written a few blog posts about historical bridal fashion:

Here is a pic of the original vintage gown I’m having redone. My gown should be ready shortly and I hope to have pics of it in a few weeks.

    • 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.
