Yes, thank you :)

 

I wanted to ask you as well, why are they charging you a $100 fee for the aisle runner? Isn't it included in the wedding package?
Are you staying at the Iberostar Beach as well?

Hi Beachbum,

I think you misunderstood luvmoo's message. She was referring to me having to pay $100 dollars to rent an aisle runner. I was asking her if she was having one for her beach wedding.

 

Happy Planning!

OMG... i'm sorry! I am confused.

So she's not renting an aisle runner, you have to pay for it? Ok, got it!

And that sucks that you have to pay for it!!

Sorry for the confusion :)

No Problem,

I have had a few problems messaging people on here too and attaching photos.

If we stay with our existing wedding package yes, I will have to pay for it but if we choose to go one package higher, the top package at our resort, it is included along with a few other things so it may be worth it. I plan on taking my shoes off for photos after the wedding but really want to wear sandals to walk down the aisle. We will see, packing the aisle runner may be too much of pain. I am trying to find out if we qualify with Air Canada Vacations for an upgrade and if we do I get to bring 3 bags instead of 2....yay.

 

Where do you live? Jamaica would be another nice place for a wedding!

Hi Ladies, 

 

Well I am back from Halifax.  What a crazy busy wedding filled 5 days it was! My best friends wedding was wonderful but I have to say the traditional "church and reception" wedding experiences only solidified by decision to have a DW (not that there was any going back now!).  I cannot even imagine having to deal with some of the things we did and I am so happy to know that I will step off a plane meet with my WC for an hour hand off my stuff and sit back and relax.  

 

I have been off the forums for awhile now, checked in once or twice and came across luvmoos post about the ACV free executive class upgrade so that was FANTASTIC also why I love this forum....... 

 

I dont think the jute bags will take the iron on transfer, I picked up a few of them as back ups before I found my OOT bags and have been using them to carry my wedding stuff, they have a plastic on the inside and I think they would melt.  Also the iron on transfers leave a "shiny" outline around everything if you know what I mean, I don't really love the look so I would recommend doing a bag tag instead of a transfer, that way your guests can remove it and use the bag even after the wedding is over! Plaster your monogram and names on disposable items but those that could be used again stay away from so you know that they can and will be used!

I found a few great deals for the Oot bags. First, small jute bags at Dollarama for 2$. Does anyone know if you can put iron on transfers on Jute? I haven't bought the bags until I know for sure.

 

Superstore has a great deal on Plastic double wall tumblers, they are clear but have different colored lids, I got blue and red ones as those are my colors. I think they have orange and green, maybe yellow too. Only 5$...most places want 7-9$ and compared to the online prices with shipping, Superstore's prices are the best. I plan on putting on a logo of some kind on them. I thought they would be nice to use for drinks at the resort or coffee...can hold warm drinks too. The cups and glasses they give you are usually small.

 

If any other Canadian brides to be have any unique ideas to put in the bags, I would love to hear them. I don't want to spend too much on them...the cups were the big expense.

 

Side note...not sure if you are giving your bridesmaids a gift, but I found really nice silk like pashminas at Le Chateau Outlet store, off white, 20$. Another bride said she was doing that and getting each girl's name embroidered on them. I may just get their initials embroidered in a corner...just an idea!

 



 


Beachbum I can't remember but did you end up going with Pauline from Shine?  I am not her biggest fan lately and FI is ready to strangle her....

I wish my TA was 1) more upfront about all these things and 2) more informed.... she is not very helpful and basically says no before she "looks into it"

 

I feel awful having recommended her early on in our planning process.  She was AMAZING in the beginning but it seems like now that we are "locked in" she could careless about keeping us informed or treating us well at all!

 

I think I am going to call ACV directly and get the info I need, I wish we could fire her but that is not an option msncry.gif

    • 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
