So!!!! excited! just ordered my guestbook from Blurb!

Hope it turns out good!

instead of photos from us, I purchased a few photos from the internet of puerto vallarta, and put those photos on the right hand side (I wanted to create more of a coffee table book so we can keep it out all the time). on the left hand side, there will be lines for guests to write notes to us. and at the header of each page is a quote - a quote about marriage, some funny, some sweet. I love it!

I had some really funny quotes

and on the inside flap, I wrote a little dedication to my FI

That sounds so cute! We're doing a coffee table guest book too, but it definitely doesn't sound as fun or personal as yours! Yea for checking stuff off the list :)

Happy Monday girls! We finished our registry this weekend! Yea for getting that nonsense done (I didn't want to register but my mom insisted so I had been totally procrastinating). Note to self... never give Brett the scanner again - he honestly tried to put Mountain Dew on the list! Also finished the invites and just need to mail them.


As a side note I asked my resort about what kind of Christmas decorations they usually have up in December. They don't do a lot except for a small tree and some stuff in the lobby.

Autumn, thats funny! we just finished registering too!

Well, I registered a long time ago at Kohl's and Traveler's Joy honeymoon website.

We really don't want people spending money on presents, but I realized for the bridal shower etc I'm going to need to register for things.

I want to cancel my Kohl's account though! does anyone know if I just call them to cancel?!

I changed our registry for Crate & Barrel, Target, and Macy's (macy's only for china) and still Traveler's Joy. I really hope our parents get in on the china together.... :)

It's fun!


Oh, and I was in thousand oaks area this past weekend, and I picked up my earrings and fake hair piece for the wedding! (hahaha!) I put the hair in and then went up to my aunt to show her and she didn't even realize I had a piece in - she thought it was my real hair! I'll post pics later!

We aren't registering but our parents keeping nagging us to do so too.. oh well. They can figure it out.

I got our travel mugs delivered on friday and i was *slightly* disappointed. The logo is just smaller than I want it to be.. FI likes them and says its good cause we didnt want something big anyways. Whatever, I guess the purpose of them is to keep the drinks cold/frozen and that will still happen.

Im at a standstill otherwise i think!

We're getting married in Cozumel on Dec 10th... we just got engaged and started planning a month ago, so I feel like I'm behind, but the plans are moving ahead fast. The wedding coordinator at the resort has been fantastic and she's handling most of the arrangements with an email to me here and there about needing a decision on something. So far we've got:


-our travel booked

-wedding day itinerary set

-bridesmaids/groomsmen set

-reception sunset cruise booked

-STDs went out 3 weeks ago

-starting my formal invites now

-purchased about 1/2 of the items for OOT bags (there are shopping bags all over our guest room... no time to put the OOT bags together yet!)

-colors picked

-logo done.... but now thinking about changing it

-meeting with site & caterers this week to make a decision on AHR reception


Whew... I feel like I have a ton left to do and just 4 months to do it!!

I just have so many people telling me they are coming - probably at least 20 more guests, and they still haven't booked. I'm like, "what are you waiting for?! I don't think rates are going to get any cheaper!"

I have learned that when I just stop worrying, that is when guests book.


We sent out about 180 invites, with 19 "No"s and "22" booked

    • 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.
