Hey girls, so the stress is really getting to me. This whole dress fiasco, and one of my dogs is so sick. She keeps dropping weight and they cant figure out why. Im so scared to leave her for 3 weeks sad.gif

 

Are we seriously leaving in 12 days?

 

Amandseth: Our AHR isnt until the Spring, or I think Id be a little stressed to. LOL You sound like your doing good with everything though! Just remember to breathe :)

 

EDRbride: I want to see the BD pics to!!!!

 

Ashley, I love your favors! I love getting ornamnets myself :)

 

Erika: You look great in your dress!!!!

 

Jessica: Moving in and finish planning...I think your superwoman!

 

Thanks for the compliments on my tats :) Im actually covering up the arm band for the wedding. Ive been doing laser removal but ran out of time and money for that!

 

So last night I went to try to find some wedding shoes...not much luck so will probably have to do some quick online shopping tonight!

 

Tonight Ill finish up the cootie catchers, and try to figure out the centerpieces....

 

Oh I ordered koozies, that guy has been ignorning me. I finally got a response and hes rushing the order now so they should get here in time. Geez!

I got a question...Im debating on the chair sashes or not. The chairs we use for our ceremony will than be moved to use for our reception. There are other lounging furniture for our guests in between aka cocktail hour.

 

I was thinking of just doing the sashes on the back row with starfish on them....than I thought maybe thats silly for an hour. So maybe I should put sashes on all of them.

 

What do you think?

Ericka - Just want to tell you how beautiful you look in your dress. Simple but elegant. Just lovely.

 

Melissa - I was debating the sashes too and then decided against them. I've got too much to worry about without wondering about what the chairs are going too look like. My decission was easy once I realised that they would get wrinkled in transit and might need to be ironed before being put on the chair. I don't iron anything so I decided against them. :-)

Hahaha, thanks, SgtPepperette, but you give me too much credit! lol, I went into full on meltdown mode last night! My fiance told me that same as you, 'breathe'. We went through the to do list and put it all into perspective and I'm feeling a bit less overwhelmed now. We've got company coming this weekend, so I'll have at least one recruit for helping me with the DIY projects I've got left.

 

The dress looks great, Ericka!

 

No chair sashes for me. I already can't figure out how all my OOT bag stuff is getting to Mexico! lol

I don't know if this is an option but this is what we're doing. We're getting a school bus to transfer everyone from their homes to the airport and back again. We're getting picked up first and as we pick up more people we're going to give them their OOT bags then. That gives people about an hour to go through them shuffle things around and pack up their oot bags.

That's a great idea, Kiera! Unfortunately, we've got people coming from all over, and even the ppl flying out of the same airport are on several different flights! ERG! I was under the impression that some of our guests who are on another airline get more for baggage allowance, and was planning to send some with them, but I've recently found out that is not the case at all. sad.gif

I've been reserving peoples carry on bags left and right! lol, I think we'll be able to make it work... I hope!!

Melissa-I don't feel like a superwomen. I feel like I'm going to get ready to crack at any moment. We get our furniture delivered today so that is one less thing that I have to worry about!

 

Erika-Your dress looks great!!! And I'm glad that your recovery is coming along! You will be 100% before you know it.

 

I had my fitting last night and there are only minor alterations that need to be done. Which is good thing since the seamstress is only going to charge me $50!!!

 

I was wondering if everyone has finalized the music selection. If so, do you mind sharing your playlist?

 

Thanks,

Jess

    • 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.
