Had To Share This Clarity Moment

Recommended Posts

Happy Birthday tomorrow Melissa! I have read your story about your mom in your other thread and I am so happy for you that you have these wonderful people that love you! As I related before, I have "mother" issues as well and I'm so happy these people will be there for you on your day!

It's kind of crazy how similar my situation is to yours...My father died unexpectedly this year and I am estranged from my mother's side of the family as well. I have no family attending the wedding but my FI will have all of his there. I'm sorry for what you are going through. I know how much it hurts to feel like an orphan when you are planning the most important day of your life. At times like these you just have to be grateful for the people that do support you and for the man who loves you and the life you will get to share with him. Hang in there!

I too just lost my father on New Year's Eve...he was also my step-father but I consider him as my dad since I have to relationship with my biological father. I know how hard it is to be planning a wedding while the rest of the family and yourself is grieving. How wonderful that your dad got to adopt you just before he passed...I'm sure both our Dad's will be smiling down on us on our wedding daysmile03.gif

    • 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.
