Calling all November 2009 Brides!

Recommended Posts

I'm going to put my ring in the safe. If you don't feel comfortable - I'd wear it on your right hand.

 

Keira- I'm busting up laughing at your siggy pic - HILARIOUS

Glad you like it Jess. I think that was one of the best costumes I've ever done. I went to a party where I didn't know anyone and I was just flashing them one by one. The looks on their faces!! Priceless.

 

As for my ring, I'm leaving it in the safe with Steve's. Fingers crossed nothing happens to it but the chances of it going missing from the safe would be about the same as it falling of my finger swimming in the ocean....I think anyways.

3 weeks and 6 days.

 

I mailed our travel booklets today and I'm making copies of all the hotel information, vendor contract and wedding consultant conversations.

 

I think this weekend I want to do a trial pack-minus the dress since it's going to be at the alterations shop until 2 days before we leave.

 

Has anyone else done a trial pack yet?

No trial, but I do have most of our wedding stuff packed. I'm just waiting for my bouquet to add and also my grooms gift. Other then that all I will have left to pack up is the vacation stuff and my dresses.

Wow I feel so behind my wedding is Nov 16th and all wedding planning has been on hold while I finished school and wrote my provincial exams. Now that all thats done I feel like I have sooooo much to get done still.

Just got my travel mugs today and they are fantastic!!! I still have to put together OOT bags and make tags for them. I still have to finish favours and look through all the wedding stuff I have been buying for the last year and a half and see what I have and what I need. Bridesmaids dresses just came in and I am on my 2nd dress fitting whooo they actually did not have to take it in or out at all it fit me like a glove they just had to hem it!!! I still can't believe in 5 weeks I will be getting married it came so fast and then moving to Australia right after the wedding for 3yrs some big changes coming!!!!!!!

OK ladies I plan to mail down my items to my wc next week. I am paying for our transport and tour this evening. I literally have 2 more items to purchase. A broom and spoons. Weird right lol. Spoons for the tasting ceremony I will check out homegoods or marshalls tomm and a Broom for Jumping the broom. I will still have to decorate that.

 

We leave Nov 6th. Is it too early for me to purchase snacks for OOT bags? I was going to get some of those big boxes/bags of different chips etc and granola bars. I was going to put one bag of chips and 2 granola bars per snack bags. I also have candy and gum in them already. Besides that I will complete my Avon bags on Tues when the brochures arrive (omg I went too far on those bags I am giving away so many samples and trial items it's crazy lol) and my snack bags and will be done with OOT bags.

 

Can I just tell you all how am I soo annoyed with my WC. She freakin forwarded me an email from our tour guide where he was talking to her ab the diff timezones etc. And she's like by the way Ashley we didn't really discuss this but the ship is on a different timezone than the island... We had actually discussed this in the past but the info she gave me was backwards so my entire timeline on the brochures that I ordered months ago is wrong. I'm not that upset with that bc we'll just tell ppl that everything is one hour off. However this means that while it's printed that everyone has to meet for breakfast and 8:45a they really have to meet at 7:45 am. I'm like that's crazy for ppl to have to be there at 7:45 bc they will be out dealing with the wedding events until 4pm at least. Thats a very long day. I know its just one day but who wants to be up that early on vacay.

I realized today I have less than fifty days left until we leave and I have at least 20 projects left to do, not finish but to start and finish. in addition to all of this I have scuba classes, photography classes, home picks to make (bought a new house and all the interior home picks have to be done in the next three weeks) and I had my first fitting, my dress is so large it fell right off me.

 

A year ago when I ordered my dress the shop owner liked it so much that she ordered a couple more in other sizes, thank god, I went from an 18 to a 14 and it will require additional alterations to make it smaller.

 

This weekend is a long weekend in Canada we celebrate Thanksgiving. I promised myself I would finish at least half of my projects fingers crossed.

 

Wish me luck

Ashley I would be very annoyed. That should of been one of the first things she talked to you about!

 

Dea, my project list is pretty intense and I have 3 weeks till I leave. LOL Im actually feeling okay about it though. We are driving down so if I have to I guess I can work on them on the 4 day drive down. LOL

 

I started working on our ceremony yesterday and fell upon the thread with all the scripts. Wow. This forum is amazing I tell you. They have helped me make such a beautiful wedding, and I cant wait to start piecing the ceremony together. :)

    • 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.
