Hermosahoops Was supposed to be flying to DLR on Friday, I hope her and her gusts made it ok, she was in my thoughts that entire day. What a crazy storm so late in the year.

 

Hope everyones planning is going well this week, we are pulling together some last details this week, feeling ok with out progress. Going in for some dental work at the end of the week, think I need a root canal, tooth has been bothering me for a few days now. This was the last thing that I needed just a few weeks before leaving, but at least it didn't start while I was away:(

 

If anyone is working on music play lists, I need some help. Need a few good slow songs from the 60's or 70's, something older people would know and dance to.

Hi Ewa,

 

We got a "Record of Solemnization of Marriage" - basically a marriage certificate immediately following our ceremony on Friday, so we will be bringing it with us, just in case.  We've not been asked to bring it, but, like PinkPetals, we will to be safe.

And do you need proof marriage in Dominican for a symbolic ceremony?

 

Thanks alot

Ewa


Hi Bee,

 

Your login name is different - I thought someone may have been using a name like you!  Thank you so much for the congrats - it was small and VERY quick, but nice to have some relatives and a couple of close friends join us on the 5th, since they can't make the trip to DLR. sad.gif 
 

We leave on Thursday, so much last minute stuff to take care of, but we're almost there.  I picked up my dress today and have it ready to go along with the boys and hubby's clothes, so that it can all go with us on our flights.  And you're right, the service at DLR will definitely be the most important one!!!  :)  I can't wait.

 

Thanks for the wish for sunny skies!

 

Nancy

Rikki,

 

I know exactly how you feel! My biggest worry for my wedding day was the weather. The reason why I chose a destination wedding and DLR was because I wanted to have an outdoor wedding in a beautiful area :)

 

The day before my wedding, it was pouring and thundering the whole day which it usually doesnt happen; it usually just rains really hard for a little bit and then it stops. So you can imagine how stressed I was; but the next day it was sunny and beautiful and I was truly blessed!

 

Im positive you will have a beautiful wedding day with lots of sunshine :) I wish you only the best on your wedding day and enjoy it as it passes by so quickly :)




Hi Nancy,

 

Congrats on you civil wedding :)

Now youre off to your destination wedding (the most important one LOL) I hope you have a wonderful wedding and I hope its everything you wished for :)

 

SUNNY WEATHER AND CLEAR SKIES FOR EVERYONE!!!! cheesy.gif

 




Hi Ewa,

 

I had my civil ceremony in Ontario about 2 months before my DLR wedding! I had it at the North York Civic Centre and we got our marriage licence right there :)

Yanna never asked for it as we had a symbolic ceremony but we took it w/ us just in case! I think you should bring it with you; better safe than sorry wink.gif

 

 

 






 


Hi Uninspired,

 

I was thinking of Rikki too - believe today is her BIG day at DLR!!!!!  Hope the weather was beautiful and everything turned out just as she and her husband envisioned. 

 

Best of luck with your visit to the dentist...no fun, but, like you said, better to have happened now than while you're away!  My mom is actually going to the dental surgeon tomorrow - ugh, and we leave on Thursday...not at all happy about this, but hoping it goes smoothly and she doesn't have a mouth like a chipmunk on vacation!!! :)

 

As for slow music the "older folks" can dance too, try downloading some songs from Michael Buble's Crazy Love CD - he covers older songs with a nice twist; songs like Georgia On My Mind, Crazy Love, At This Moment, etc...I know I'm dating myself, but they may be good alternatives for you.  We're still trying to download some last songs for our playsists too...nothing like last minute, huh???  :)

 

Must get back to getting things ready...

 

Looking forward to meeting you!

 

Nancy

Hi Girls, What a crappy few days. Got a major virus, doctors put me on antibiotics for 5 days. Also had some major tooth pain, and had to have an emergency root canal today:(. Wasn't at work for 2 days, didn't get any wedding stuff done at all this week. We leave to DLR in 11 days and at this point I have just thrown my hands up, whatever doesn't get done just won't get done. Girls don't forget to take care of your selves, take vitamins and get lots of sleep, especially as it is getting closer to your time to go. I had been taking my vitamins and preventatives for a month, but got busy and let my routine laps, immediately came up sick. Don't do this to yourselves! I am literally on the couch trying to break a fever, and loosing my mind:( I hope everyone had a better week than me. Please send good vibes my way, I really need it for these last few days. Hope you all have a lovely weekend. Alla

Alla,

 

Do not worry it will all work out in the end. I don't think any one understands the stresses of being a bride unless you have gone through it yourself. Your best advice to yourself is, whatever gets done gets done and everything else doesn't matter. Rest, get over this cold... so when you are healthy and healed you will be a most beautiful bride. It will be great and will turn out beautiful!!! We are alll sending you positive thoughts.

Hi ladies! 

 

Thank you again for all the wonderful thoughts, wishes and comments. Things could not have worked out better and I'll be putting up a review soon, I promise! Yanna was wonderful, the weather was great and everyone said they had a great time. I even met the lovely Nancy a few days after the wedding and she was awesome. 

 

If you have any questions or concerns please ask away and I'll try to answer the best I can. I had a small wedding though, so I might not have the answer on private receptions and so forth.

 

In the meantime, here are some pictures from HDC. I had Francisco and he did a great job. 

 

Lots of love,

 

Rikki

    • 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!!
