Unengaged (*gasp*) Newbie

Recommended Posts

Hey! Welcome to the forum. Im not engaged yet either, however my bf and I have talked about a wedding in October 2010. Im not one of the girls who wants to be engaged for a long time so he has waited to pop the question. You will have so many ideas from here by the time your ready to plan. Good Luck. :)

Well shucks, thanks everyone blush2.gif.

 

It's good to know that I'm not the only one out there (& wonderful that I am just being "prepared" not crazy bunny_4.gif)

 

I am off to check out the reviews (which I am addicted to) & to try and scope out a potential venue.

 

The bf and I have talked about it and I think we would like some place AI so that we can make it affordable for our friends/families and kind of low key. I adored Mexico when we were there (Riviera Maya) - so if anyone can make any recommendations I would appreciate it!!

 

Cheers!

A

You sound like me! I use to search around prior to getting engaged. I am engaged now though, but I think there is nothing wrong with getting an idea of what you want beforehand. Good Luck!

Congrats on being Awesome and planning ahead!

 

The BEST Bride-To-Be, in my honest opinion, FULLY realizes she can't plan everything...including the circumstantial events leading up to her proposal!

 

My would-be proposal was a mess: I, beyond anything of my control, was severely rear-ended/in a car accident, AND my only living grandparent (Dad's Mom) fell gravely ill during the SAME day my (now) fiance had planned to propose to me. "A moonlit walk on the Maryland Shore in the surf and moonlight" never happened the way he'd plannned...

 

LIFE came up and plans changed. He proposed to me, on bended knee, right in our living room! It was completely adorable and I never saw it coming! I was so wrapped up in the insurance people and my grandmother's health-status that, he simply stopped me where I stood 3 days after the accident. With the ring burning a hole in his pocket, and so much sincerity and love in his eyes, he asked me to "do him the honor of being his wife", and I couln't say anything else to the man I love but "YES!"

 

We are getting married at SGOR next Spring on May 14, 2010!

 

Things always work out in the end!.....

 

Hugs,

Christie

    • 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.
