Megan's Cabo Planning Thread

Recommended Posts

My bridesmaids got a few extras including a monogrammed robe, sequin flip flops from old navy and a bunch of makeup, lipgloss and nail polish from e.l.f.(everything is only $1 and it's great makeup).

The kids got their own bags. I forgot to take pictures, but they were super cute pink and orange terry cloth bags with a matching beach towel. I got them on clearance at Land's End. I made a kids activity book, a few stickers, toys, beach balls and also a flower girl shirt (target tshirt with an ironon decal):

We also did rash guards for our bridal party. We bought them online pretty cheap and then added ironons with Cabo2009. Everyone used these at the beach days and snorkel trip.

Instead of wedding books in everyone's bags, we made little picture books using the Mac and put one in each rental villa. we included sections on who's who, timelines, maps, common spanish phrases, etc. So much easier and faster than printing:

For the ceremony, the decor was very simple. Most everything was DIY. I made votive candle placeholders using vellum paper from Michaels and centerpieces were various size vases with white marbles, floating orchids and floating candles (all from Michaels).

We also order custom painted maracas in our wedding colors for favors. I tied them to the backs of the chairs using ribbon:

and last, the dress. This is tricky because i found out that i was pregnant after we booked everything. I did a TTD shoot at our site visit when I was only 4 months along and then bought a new dress for the wedding (81/2 months along):

Thanks. I've got tons of extras. If anyone wants them, I'm happy to pass them along. You would just have to print a label for the back and replace my shutterfly account info with your own.

Thanks. I used the trifold brochure from vista print. You can download the template from their site and design it in powerpoint. I can't remember who I borrowed the ideas from- Morgan maybe? They were pretty cheap to print. For the luggage tags, I order the badge holders from amazon and got free business cards from vista print- I put a picture on the front and name/address info on the back. You could also save the brochure as a PDF and email it to your guests. I included a welcome note, itinerary for the week, transportation from the airport, packing list, weather, general info on activities and reminders to RSVP on our website for any group events they wanted to sign up for. Here are a few more pics.

Aw, thanks :) Not exactly the way I dreamed I'd look on my wedding day, but some things just don't go quite as planned!

    • 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
