        Must Have:
        Mom, Dad, Brother by my side
        Relaxed frame of mind
        Father to be speechless
        Fiance smiling at the end of the aisle
        Michael Steingard Photography (AMAZING!)

        Don't Care:
        everything else

        bringing a few centerpieces
        plain affordable dress vs. slightly beaded little more expensive dress with a train
        Kelly & Pablo

        Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

              What a fantastic idea for a thread!

              MUST HAVES:
              The man I adore!
              Our families there to share the moment
              Beautiful weather (fingers crossed)
              Great photos/DVD of the ceremony
              A good hairday of the day of (again, fingers crossed!)
              A fun, casual AHR

              DON'T CARES:
              Bridesmaids/groomsmen (no plans for any)
              Expensive flowers/decorations
              Spa treatments
              Costly Private dinner at the resort

              Here's hoping that everyone's "Must Haves" become "We Hads!"
