Your cake is beautiful! Did you have it made or is it the one the hotel provided? I assume you brought the toppers, did you put the rose petals on as well?
What else did you take as decorations?
I am really wanting to leave that all in the hotel's hands, but wondering if I should bring a little something.
Thanks Laura! I was sooo happy- Jeff & I both were just so excited to be getting married, the fact that the day went PERFECTLY was just icing on the cake for us! We both keep pinching ourselves that it's real!

The cake was provided by the hotel. They also did the roses, althought I paid for the petals because they were everywhere. 10 pieces were included, I paid $6 each for an extra 15 slices so my guests could take some back to their rooms in the personalized cake boxes I brought with me. The cake was delicious, Tres Leches with chocolate & strawberries between the layers. My guests raved about the cake. All the extra was taken and eaten the next day!

For decor, I brought a TON. I'll put it all in my review, but I brought a total of 4 pieces for the sand ceremony, program fans, tissue holders, petal toss pouches, parasols, chinese lanterns (24 hanging, 4 sitting), table runners, personalized candles for placeholders, menus for welcome dinner & reception, thank-you fans, cake toppers, cake boxes, 95 luminarias, and all my OOT stuff. I know I'm forgetting stuff, but that's what comes to mind right now...

So Sarah, would you suggest hiring makeup and hair outside of dreams? I was just going to use Dreams, but if your makeup didn't work out I don't know anymore!

I'm definetly going to the MAC counter now! I am so paranoid about having someone at the resort do my makeup and it looking horrible, its kind of an important part of what you will look like in pictures! I'll just learn how to do it and keep practicing!

I would definitely not recommend Dreams for makeup. Maybe I just got a bad person, but it was REALLY bad. I loved my hair, but it wasn't a very difficult style. It turned out exactly how I wanted it, but I also practiced that so I could do it if I had to.

Edyta used Susanne Morel (I think that's how you spell her name) salon, who is also the person Christa had and she looked fantastic. That might be one to check out. After seeing Edyta I almost called Susanne Morel at the last second, but decided to just stick with Dreams. When all was said and done I'm glad I did it the way I did. Jeff said he loved my makeup because it looked like "me".

aww, what a sweet HUSBAND, lol! Thats what I want to, I want to look like myself, but just slightly more done up so it shows well in photos. I guess thats probably the part I'm the most worried about, is that I can do my makeup I just don't know how to do it well enough for pictures!

Did you wear fake eyelashes?

That's exactly what I wanted too. I just did a little more than I normally wear...

I didn't wear fake eyelashes, but I wanted to. I just forgot and then it was too late!

smile159.gif Congrats Sarah! You looked so very beautiful. I know I use the term stunning often but once again that word applies.

 

Your makeup was flawless so kudos to the artist. I can't wait to see more pics and read a review.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
