Be carful with the butterflies and a destination wedding. As a biologist there are way too many introduced species. Make sure you pick a species that lives in mexico and get them from mexico. Releasing a speices that doesn't live there can really harm the native wildlife. wink.gif Good luck and sorry to be so serious with this post.

Thanks! I happend to be viewing photogalleries online and saw it being done (in mexico) so I wanted to research it to see if anyone had reviews. After reading the thread I opted to go back to the flowers..lol. I really dont want my guests to open up the pretty boxes to find dead butterflies..lol.

and I am counting on you.
Let me feel his presence;
as I journey down the isle.
But let me notice his abscence;
if only for a while.
Let me stop to think of him;
As I am given away.
And know that if he could;
he would be here with me today.
Dear Lord please clear a spot for him;
he should have the perfect view.
And if he should get sad today;
Dear Lord I count on you.
That is an amazing poem! I'm at work reading right now and actually crying. If you don't mind, I might actually use that poem for my wedding day.

I was considering the butterfly release, but a friend gave me a great alternative (and a lot cheaper). It will just take a bit of creativity and handy work. There is a way to make paper butterflies on a spring that you wind up, and when you open a card or envelope, they fly up. She is super creative and is looking for the instructions on how to do this. When she gets back to me, I'll post it for you!

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