Hi MJKH,

 

Did some digging for you :)

http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/wiki/become-a-best-destination-wedding-supporter

 

You need to reach Jr. Member status by hitting 150 posts.  Just welcome new guests, give your opinion on dresses, and join threads where you can post a lot like "like or dislike" and such.  You can get to 150 within a week.  It doesn't switch over automatically so sometimes you have to wait a day before you can access "Attachments" and such once you become a Jr. Member.

 

Hope that helps! Welcome to the forum.

Can anyone point me in the direction of the "rules" of BDW regarding number of posts and what can be accessed when?  I have been looking for it all over!!!!

MJKH - let me know what templates you are looking for.  Nothing drives me more crazy than the "very nice" "cool" "looks good" comments that clog up the other threads!!!! It is a fair suggestion Jackie but can be REALLY annoying!!! The point is to provide useful information to help one another in this process.  Getting updates for threads that are really just "noobs" trying to reach junior status is sooooo frustrating!! 

 

Don't mean to be mean about it, we've all been there trying to reach our 150 but you are better to follow threads like this one that promote discussion and really be an active member as you have been on here so far!!! I really appreciate everything you have shared and I am sure other brides would appreciate it too!!!!

Hi MJKH,

 

I see someone already told you about having to have 150 posts to get access to attachments. The other option that I used was I paid 27$ I think to bypass that and become a supporter that gives  you access to all attachments. I was impatient, and I am still only at 80 posts I think. It really depends how much you are on here but I seem to be on here quite a lot being on holidays.

Access to the attachments quicker definitely helps with planning. Good luck!

Hi Ladies,

I am glad to hear that I am not the only one addicted to doing these OOT bags!!! Every time I got out, I stop by stores to see what kind of deals I can find.

Thanks for the tip on Rexall drugs, I got my tide for the sink packs there, cheaper then Walmart. They had really neat tiny spray sunblock 30spf by the tills, but there was only 1 left.

There aren't many Rexall drugs in Edmonton, so I may check out Rexall drugs in Calgary. Have any of you Calgary brides seen them?

 

I too can't find Shout wipes, but I came across a great web site Drugstore.com....has some travel stuff but overall great site for vitamins etc...Way cheaper then even Walmart!! And if you spend 25$ or more, shipping to Canada is free.

 

Nice Oot bags from Dollarama! They are the same ones as mine!

 

Question- Are any of you brides giving pashminas to your bridesmaids? I am wanting to give each of my three bridesmaids one with their initials embroidered on it. I looked online on ebay last night and there are a few companies that are reasonable 25$ or so for 1 pashmina. Have any of you found any locally? I found some nice silk like ones at Le Chateau Outlet for 25$ but that doesn't include initials embroidered.

 

If anyone is looking for Aloe Vera Gel, my Walmart carried it for 1.57$ per bottle so I bought lots for my guests and me as I have already burned this week!

I am giving pashminas...and I know a local lady that does embroidery.  I think I looked at every statement made about about pashminas on BDW and there were lots of suggestions.  Last year I bought a bamboo pashmina for myself on vacation and LOVED it...so I have been hunting down a reasonably-priced wholesaler, and this is what I've ordered (it's not the cheapest pashmina out there, but I had my heart set on bamboo!):

At $7 a piece, I thought they'd be worth a try!  I'll be getting them from my SIL at the end of the month so I can take some pics and give feedback.  Again, they are in the states so I just used a border service and had it sent there for my SIL to pick up.

So I just paid the $30 USD to become a supporter, because for as "active" as I've become, I still have a long way to go before I reach 150!  I so agree about clogging up the threads...I hate having to go thru hundreds of comments to find the one thing that I remember someone talking about a while back...

    • 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!!
