December 2009 Brides!

Recommended Posts

There are only 11 of us and I'm waiting until we get there (Cabo). We wanted to do a snorkeling excursion but I've heard conflicting stories between my WC and the snorkeling company. The WC said the water temp. would be too cold, but of course, the snorkeling people said it would not be. Duh, go figure. Anyway, we're just going to wait and see. However, if any of you Cabo brides want to snorkel, whale watch or go on a sunset cruise, Sunrider Tours offered me a discount, ($10 off per person). I just got on their website and emailed, asking some questions, and Mario offered me the discount. I told him I would contact him once I arrived. He seemed to be ok with it.

We aren't doing any excursions for our group. We feel our guests are paying alot of money to come to our wedding we don't want to also tell them what to do while they are there. I know some brides do sunset cruises tho? And i would probably book it in advance if you were going to do that.

Hi girls! How's everyones planning going? Seems like my list is getting longer instead of shorter sad.gif But at least my dress closet is full of beachy stuff since the stores are in full blown winter mode!

 

I decided to make starfish ornaments for our favors and just got the starfish in the mail! Ugh they were kinda smelly fish, but I set them out overnight so they don't stink anymore. Now I just need some Christmas ribbon and I'll be set! I think they are so cute.

 

Also FIs dad sent an email saying he wants to help pay for the cake party we are doing the night before the wedding. So I'm excited about that too! We have 4 people celebrating birthdays (including FIs mom) the week we are there so this party is a mini birthday fiesta - whoop!

 

Ummm is it December yet?!??!

Nadine we are the total slacker month. I love being able to do as little as I want and still know my wedding is going to rok. I went and stalked the Nov 09 thread and all of the girls getting married there chat all the time about everything they have worked on.

 

As for the ornaments I am just tying some festive ribbon on a 3" starfish with a tag that says Merry Christmas on one side and PV 12/5/09 on the other. $35 for 36 ornaments. I'm also contemplating adding a small card like the one attached in the bag. Guess we'll see how ambitious I get. I used this site Find Starfish, Beach Décor, and Seashell Crafts at US Shell because I used to work with them when I ran a gift shop on South Padre Island. Just called them up and they shipped the stuff the next day. Hmmm... but I'm not sure about them shipping to Canada.

 

And I just got a call from a good friend and he is going to book his trip this week. He was calling to see if he can bring 2 girls! Bwahahahaha the more the merrier I suppose. I'm sure it will make for some good stories :)

I say that you are still getting married in Mexico---hard for it to be screwed up enough to override that.

Hi Everyone,

 

i am up to 32 plus bride and groom! I am very excited! It was more than I originally thought would book! The more the merrier I say too :)

 

I am slacking a little but I figure I won't drive myself nuts---it will be great by default.

Hi ladies, I have also found that my to do list has gotten longer instead of shorter lol I finally just convinced FI that we should do OOT bags so I really should get started on that!

I am totally guilty about being a slacker, because guess what? we still don't have our wedding bands! yikes, not sure if we would be able to order them in time, if not, maybe we'll just use "temporary rings" and then use our actual rings when we do our legal ceremony when we get back... so far this plan sounds good in my head lol...

Hi ladies! Is everyone getting excited! december is right around the corner! I haven't been on in a while. I have been trying to get things done! I made a pre-wedding mailer (used Vista Print) and am working on a welcome book now. I had my first dress fitting last weekend and my next one is next weekend. I also started my packing list. The time is flying by. I feel like I still have so much to do!

    • 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!!
