Congrats Missy and good luck! I know what you mean re being blocked. My job has now blocked just about everything including BDW. Nonetheless I always log on at home.

I am leaving tomorrow morning for our wedding at the Suites on Sunday!

 

I really wish I could have been on BDW more, but my darn worked blocked it! haha. You all have been so helpful and I promise to write a review when I get back. I am using Marcia Roberts Photography and Floral Fantasy for flowers. Haven't really heard much from Nicole, but I have my plan, so hopefully it all goes well!  :)

 

<3 Missy

If you had 40 guests would you rather rent out the restaurant for $800 and pay $150/hr for DJ or do a semi private dinner and rent out the mango disco walk for $350 (DJ and open bar included)? I am concerned about decorating two locations.

Also if I was to hold my reception at the Gourment Restaurant is there enough room for dancing?

 

Thanks

One more question regarding the cocktail party. If you go with the warm and cold appetizers menu, are drinks such as water or punch included? Do you have to add an open bar for your guests to be served non alcoholic beverages?

We are also booked on a Sunday.  It was our first choice of days, so I don't know what else was available.  We also booked Feb. 2011.

Has anyone used Grande Garden as their florist. I received a quote dfrom them that was great, but I can't find many reviews on them. I have been working with Charmaine and she seems great. I was just wondering if anyone has used them.

 

Thanks

Hi Ladies,

 

I am leaving on the 16th woot.gifAnd so Excited!!!  We are expecting about 40 or so guests and I have a fun group going, so I know we will have a BLAST!  Anyways, while Im in the spirit just wanted to give a brief overview of whats happening in my life (it may help someone else).

 

I have a LOT of crap to travel with.  I plan on splitting some of my stuff with family and friends, and the rest I will just have to pay the extra cost to travel with.  I don't trust shipping anything before hand. 

 

I have OOT bags that I split up the contents between my bridesmaids (they actually get there the day before me).  I orderded my oot bags from the knot wedding shop.  I can't find a pic of them, but I found these.P3230_sh.jpgAnd I'm mad cause they're cuter than mine, I wish I would have seen them before.  Anyways, mine are blue and I used white bubble/fabric paint to write our wedding date on each of them.  By the way the bags are about 1.50 a piece.  In the bage I have a travel sun tan lotion ($1), travel advil ($2) both from target, disposable camera also from the knot wedding shop $1.99 each P1825_sh.jpgA jamaica brochure that I ordered from the Jamaica tourism board free.  Itinerary I printed myself.  Room keyholder with an insert I ordered from vista print that has some cute saying about "to have and to hold your key" etc. And flip flops I got from the dollar store for a dollar.  (I would put pics, but most of the stuff I started packing up).

 

I just picked up my dress Fridaydownload?mid=1%5f44974%5f1%5f4928040%5f0%5fADoJDUwAADRMTOqs1wet3E6wKLg&pid=3&fid=%2540S%2540Search&inline=1download?mid=1%5f44974%5f1%5f4928040%5f0%5fADoJDUwAADRMTOqs1wet3E6wKLg&pid=2&fid=%2540S%2540Search&inline=1

 

I got my bridesmaids dresses from Macys.  I paid for them since I only have 2 bridesmaids (cousin and sister) and I figured they already have to spend so much to travel.

 

I ordered these super cute boutineers online.  I spent maybe $45 dollars for 4 of them, including shipping.

 

And lucky for me my flower girls had dresses baskets and everything else they needed.

 

And sorry for the disorganization, but just found pics of my OOT bags:

 

I decided to do my ceremony on the terrace, dinner at either the cajun restaurant or Uncle Tony's non private and then head back to the terrace to cut cake, do speeches, dance/dj, and champagne.  I'm not going to do open bar, because I hear the lobby bar is really close to the terrace.  I'll probably make my little cousin into a server LOL.  And here are some pics of the terrace ladies:......Awww, they are not posting........Sorrythatswck.gif

 

I also made these fans, which my programs will sit on and be placed in each chair.

 

And I ordered this lovely guest book set:

 

 

I also have aqua blue chair sashes, about 100 votive candles with vellum paper around them in my colors, 6,000 white petals, 2,000 tiffany blue (I plan to line the aisle with them), 20 white paper lanters to hang on terrace, and 20 tiffany blue paper lanterns, H cake topper...I think thats it......

 

So two weeks from today I will be at the airport!!!!!!!  If you ladies have any questions its probable best to email me at brandyshaunta@yahoo.com.  Oh and my resort is IRHB and date is 6.18.11.  Also, if anyone is arriving on or before 6.20.11 (after the 20th were honeymooning in Negril) and wants to buy my flower petals, lanterns, or chair sashes email or PM me.

 

I'm so excited!woot.gif

    • 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!!
