Hi Romana uk 2012!!! )xx
I am glad you find this forum helpful and for me personally it gave me so many awesome ideas which by myself I would have never though of, so thank you ladies to all of you again :Dxx
Blue and white theme sound fantastic, we have similar but turquoise and white theme
Oh my goodness you got your dress already, do you have any pictures of your and bridesmaids dresses maybe, - I love seeing what other brides have picked! lol )
About the package I had the same dilemma, I was leaning towards the ultimate package, however than I find out that only 14 of us are coming so after calculations it made more sense to use Dreams Free package and just add extras on the top of it )
I have been told by resort that basic linen and chair covers and chair ties are provided, however I am not too sure what colors are available - as it was quite a while when I spoke with Yanna about it...this is something I need to find out myself now I will be emailing her tonight after I will speak to my FI regarding out wedding cake So i will post here if I will get response about linens etc. first Or maybe one of you ladies might know the answer of what color linen and chair covers included ?
We are having ceremony in garden gazebo as well! followed by cocktail hour on the pier and reception on the beach (sooo can't wait lol ) We are getting resorts DJ and would like to have bonfire as well at the end of the night, but not quite sure do they still provide this service, cos I did not see any bonfire prices in Yanna's recent extras list she sent me...will have to ask her about it in tonight's email too and will let you ladies know, in case one of you is planning to have it too. As there will be only 14 of us, I am not that worried about entertainment, cos we are pretty crazy bunch, i am sure we will be fine lol
For our travel part of the trip we used Caribbean Warehouse, cos they seemed to have the most reasonable prices at that time, and originally were going to fly with Thomas Cook. however sometime in April, we got a phone call from Caribbean Warehouse, saying that suddenly they got report that Thomas Cook decided not to fly to DR during winter months (which is when we are flying, February)...so we have been offered to fly with Thomson instead which were about £200pp more expensive - but its just one of those things i guess..it was stressful of course at the time, but we made it through )
Who did you book with and who are you flying with btw? )
Regarding dress transportation...there is no way on earth I will let my dress go in the hold luggage LOL So after readying thread on here with UK brides, I decided to invest into Travel Dress Box from here:
Its really good to see another UK bride on here too. The forum is fab and all the brides to be are so helpful. I have started planning ,I'm just so excited. We are having a blue and white theme. I'm letting my husband to be think it was his idea as he is a Blackburn Rovers fan ha ha . I have bought my dress and bridesmaid dresses and have started to pick things up in the sales for my oot bags.
We have 18 people coming at present and a few that have said there going to book . We are hoping to get married in the garden gazebo followed by a cocktail party on the pier and an outside reception on the deck at the seaside grill, all being well and it not raining, fingers crossed.
I have still not decided whether or not to go with the ultimate package . Some of the things included I wont be needing and not too sure about the hotel photographer or possibly HDC. What are your thoughts ?.
Does the resort provide the table linen and chair sashes and if so is there a choice of colours. I really like the wooden chairs without the covers do you know if these are included?
What are your plans for your big day ? Who are you flying with and how are you transporting your dress?
Sorry for all the questions xx
If you have any further info I would be so grateful if you could forward to my email address firstname.lastname@example.org
