    I'm super excited!!! Only nervous if it rains on my wedding day, if my centerpieces don't get there safely and about flying lol Hubby and I haatteee to fly :)



    So I'm flying with Sunwing...I've travelled with this airline before,.. It's a pretty small plane. Does anyone know if they have a closet where to hang the wedding dress? I've read so many bad experiences in regard to the dress getting totally wrinkled so I'm a little worried about that..... Any suggestion from past/future brides??

      Call Sunwing, I was thinking of that this weekend. My dress is mostly chiffon, and my friend is bringing her hand steamer.  

       

      What did you do for your centerpieces? Did you ship fedex? Track it and then ask Tiara to open it asap.

            Yanna gets the wedding dress and grooms suit collected the day before the wedding. I was a bit concerned letting anyone touch my dress, which was creased after carrying it in a suit carrier all the way. But it was steamed perfectly and left back in our room for us.

              Hello to all you beautiful ladies!

               

              I have been reading this thread for quite some time now and would like to thank everyone for their ideas, reviews, photos etc... you guys have been alot of help!

               

              I am getting married on April 13 2011, my ceremony will take place at the gazebo at 4:00pm, I would really like to have the reception at SSG as it seems to be the most popular place on here, my only question/concern are the mosquitos! I have just returned from La Romana 2 weeks ago, we stayed couple of resorts down from Dreams and we got eaten alive, we have never seen so many mosquitos before. By the way, when we were down there we managed to get a meeting with Tiara, she is very lovely and she took the time to give us a whole tour of the resort ... it is beautiful!!!!

               

              So my question to all the past brides is ... did you ladies have any problems with the mosquitos while having your dinner at SSG, do they have anything there to keep them away?

               

              Thanks alot :)

                So I shouldnt bother buying a hand held steamer? Yanna will do this for free?

                    Hey there,

                     

                    Apparently there the DR had an infestation of misquitoes because of a early rainy season. Luckily, our month (I'm getting married on April 11th:)) is the dry but windy time. The SSG has an outdoor and a indoor. The indoor is what costs an extra 1000+26%. So cool, I wish I would have been there to watch but we are leaving on the 13th!!

                      one month.. wow... time flies. I can't wait to hear how this all turns out for you!  Another bride told me that they let them steam the dress and everything was fine. My MOH has one and is bringing it. Maybe someone you know does too and you can borrow it?
