Hey guys! My name is Kim. I am looking at getting married in April of 2010! Not quite sure on the date yet!

I am trying to pick a location I am thinking of Sandals in Jamaca but I just found out that its a couples only resort and a few of our friends are single so I am still looking!!! That is why I am here!


I am 34 and just got purposed to on my birthday March 16th! My fiance and I have dated for 7 years! We were both married prior to this! Its our second marriage!


We were high school sweet hearts married the wrong people we both have 2 kids each and are now back together! I am truly happy and no this is where I was meant to be all along! Our families are very happy! Except there are a few unhappy that we are going to have a destination wedding! My mom is one of them she doesnt have alot of money and she has to have 24 hour care Brian and I take care of her and my handi cap older sister! They live with us!


We are not trying to exclude anyone and if there is a way for me to save the money I will take my mom with us to get married and then send her home with my brother or sister! (not sure on this yet!)


So we have also been looking into a destination wedding in like the US Virgin Islands or Florida but I realy wanted a all inclusive hotel and on the beach!!! I am just trying to think of how to save a few bucks if we didnt need to get everyone passports!


We are from Minnesota! So there is no white sand beaches here and I just dont want the drama of our ex's being around! I want it to be our day! We are going to have a reseption when we come home.


Looking for any helpfull advice!!!

    • 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.
