    Hello ladies! I've spent the last few weeks pouring over the numerous entries. It has been wonderful reading your feedback and your ideas. I changed my location from Dreams Punta Cana to Dreams La Romna and I think we are going to love it! We are getting married on May 28, 2011 and have confirmed the date.

    I'm a little nervous though. We're about to send out the STDs and we have about 300 people on our guest list. I am hoping that most will reply that they are not coming and we will get between 60-100. Wish me luck!

      AAAAAAHHHHHH!!! I've been off the forum for a couple of months and it has taken me all night to catch up.
      CONGRATS!!!! to all the lovely ladies that got married in my absense. You all looked stunning! Wow.
      I'm 2 weeks aways from my wedding and I feel really overwhelmed right now -- probably because I'm overthinking everything. I've got most of my planning done except my centerpieces. I had ordered manzanita branches and the ones I ordered are horrible and now the company is saying it's going to take to long to get the new ones.
      I'm rethinking --- I love the idea of the masonry jars with shells so I just may go in that direction.
      Also, now I'm thinking of switching from the SSG to the beach. Petals, can you send me the pricing info? We originally thought we would have 30 people but now it's only 22 so I'm not sure if renting the whole SSG will be worth it.
      Leslie and Gem!!! You're next!
      Good luck!!!

      Now I'm going to bed!

        I am booking this week, i was wondering about the decorations.. what is everyone bringing. Please be patient,i'm new to this blogging thing and hope this is the right place to write it. Also I see that a dance floor is extra, does that mean only one the beach? Any feedback from anyone would be great!

          Yes i would like to know as well, is there a huge price difference. i am thinking it will be easier if i go to a notary or city hall and sign some paper's before.

              We should probably post whatever we all have so we have a central place for everything.

              And fyi, I haven't heard about my deposit from Tiara either and it has been a week. (LOL)
              i'm new to the forum and am reading through all the back posts. Are you able to email me this document from Tiara?

              thanks in advance.

Hmm...unless your native language is Spanish, you do not want Tiara or any other person who works for the resort conducting your "ceremony!" Yes, Tiara speaks fairly good english but she has quite an audible accent and if you have seen the ceremony that they do there you will realize that it won't give you that warm and fuzzy feeling that we're all after. My recommendation is absolutely to go with Pastor Rick who does both religious and non-religious ceremonies. If anyone would like to see a sample let me know and I'll e-mail it to you.
                Hi Nadia,

                I'm new to this thread, and was wondering if you could send me what pastor rick does. I'm on the fence as a "money" saver as we are getting married at the court house in advance. But i also want everything to be special. If you could email me at tiggerdc@hotmail.com his vows that would be awesome. Thank you and thank everyone. My eyes are starting to bug out from reading this thread lol, but i can't stop, so much great information.

                  Oh and Amy - I think you'll be VERY pleased with the paper lanterns that we're sharing. I LOVED them. i'll send you an email this weekend with more details on that an all our other decor. Loved it!! :)
                  I just saw your wonderful pictures. Can i ask? what package did you end up using? Did you hire the Dj from the resort or did you hire someone outside (i saw dancing and it is so important to me)

                  I would really appreciate feedback:) Thank you for sharing your pictures :)

                      Hi ladies!

                      I looked thru the last couple of pages on the blog but I didn't notice if we had the measurements of the round tables yet. Does anyone have those measurements yet?
