We're back from our wedding!!!!

Recommended Posts

OMG Heather!rofl.gif

Honestly, you just made my day -- for MANY reasons!:-)

I feel, after reading your experiences, that if we lived in the same city we would be BFF's and go out for martinis to laugh at all the problems we seem to have BOTH had during our DWs!;-)


Okay, so yes, many things sucked...and were just plain wacky...and awful (that poor guest who slipped and fell! I can't believe Canada wouldn't ship her blood! What is up with THAT?? What on Earth was the reason for this??)

But I digress...

I too had a HORRID salon experience that had to be corrected minutes before our ceremony...

AND, we also had so many communication problems the day-of it was ridiculous! Whether it was between us, our family, our friends, or the resort WC...just everything got mixed up :-) shitfan.gif


Actually, my DH just had a suggestion (I read him parts of your post:-))...

He thinks everyone should get those walkie-talkie things for the wedding day!

Seriously, that would have solved SO many problems for us! (and you too it sounds like:-))


We also had two weeks at our resort... but my DH basically told his family he was kicking them out of the country for the second week, thank GAWD:-)

I definitely think you two deserve some "alone" time... on the upside, at least you get another trip somewhere!:-)


Also, when I sent my DH for a mani/pedi the day of...the woman at the spa painted his toenails pink without asking/saying anything to him!

It was SO weird!

But his toes did make for a good coversation piece:-)


Anywaaay, congrats! As someone else posted earlier...at least you're now married to your sweetheart:-)

And since we don't live in the same city, I'll have a virtual drink with you here instead - shots.gif

Welcome Home and CONGRATULATIONS!!!! It sounds as if you had a wedding/honeymoon/trip that is beyond memorable. In fact, you, your family, and your friends will likely be laughing about the boat excursion for years to come. As for the wedding day folly, take it in stride. We can never plan for every SINGLE dilemma. We can simply roll with the punches and learn from them. As for the wedding ceremony and reception, it seems as though you were glowing...with much grace and dignity. I cannot wait to see your wedding pics and hear your review!

    • 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.
