Most of them were fairly low wedges (compared to the others around them at least) but I would never have considered them to be flats!! Too much of a sale grab I think... plus I've already ordered my shoes so it was easy to blow here off cheesy.gif

And Suzy has a good point... at least a few of my friends have mentioned recently that their dresses all got stepped on by mistake and wound up being ripped and needing repairs sad.gif Let's hope that none of us end up with the same fate until after all the pictures are done!
Did you happen to call me about 20 mins ago from your home line? lol all the phones were in the bedroom and I didn't make it on time but I didn't recognize the # and no message??
Also, I sooooooooo didn't get to Dollarama today, looks like that adventure will be tomorrow!!

And, I totally just ordered a coffee mug for Rene (FI to everyone else), free from Vistaprint, with our wedding date and what my new name is going to be on it, well our name together! Hehehe He should never forget our wedding anniversary now!! lol not when I serve him coffee in it every morning!!

Haha, imagine we all had the same dress from Sears? Mine is strapless, fitted at the bust but flowing everywhere else, no train, central jewel embellishment on the chest. It's very beachy!

I saw that one and liked it......how is it? I was trying to match to my dress as close as possible....and I'm not sure if I did that great of a job! Do you think it really matters if it's different? Ladies?

Nope didn't call you last night Suzy sorry!! I should send you an email with all my phone #'s since I am quite prone to randomly calling from wherever I happen to be and expecting people to know that it's me cheesy.gif

 

I love that you ordered a mug with your new name on it! FI is REALLY stubborn about me taking his last name (yes, in a very stone age ME MAN, YOU MINE sort of way!) and is already asking about how soon I'll be getting my new business cards etc once we're official. He'd probably love something like that, just to have it in writing! Are you giving it to him before hand or do you think you'll pack it to take down to Mexico for him??

 

As for the TTD dresses... is it bad that I totally can't remember what mine looks like anymore!?! It's been at my sisters house pretty much since I received it so I wouldn't have looked in nearly two months now haha! But I do know that it's nothing at all like my real wedding dress but I'm okay with that. Since I'm going to be in all sorts of pictures all over the resort anyways, I figure that being in different dresses isn't going to be a big deal.

I'm wearing actual sandals for the wedding - I had my dress ordered with me standing barefoot to make sure it wouldn't be too long or need a hem

These are my shoes

I wanted the barefoot sandals for the TTD pictures - i can wear them alone or with flipflops till we get to the water. i just thought they'd be a little added sexy.

And we have many vistaprint mugs - you would not even believe what i've ordered from that place - I just ordered my AHR invitations from there - made from the 'free" post cards. i'm hoping if I keep ordering I'll have enough tshirts for my OOT bags!

Update on the spacey MOH! She just got her taxes back and has booked her flight!!!!! She is going in to get her dress this week and is coming over this week so I can help her with her hotel room as well (The hotel requires that you book with a scanned copy of your photo ID).

 

It "seems" that all is good until I got a call from her this week. She is single which is totally fine. There are 2 other singles coming down as well. She didnt want to have to travel alone so she asked if she could bring a girlfriend. I said that was fine. Then the next day she calls and asks if the friend could bring her boyfriend but that he wouldnt come to the wedding. I asked her why she would even be cool with that since the whole reason she wanted her girlfriend to be her date was so that she didnt have to travel alone and be the 3rd wheel? If he came, which I was not ok with, she would be the 3rd wheel and that would suck for her. We are approaching 28 years old and this girlfriend of hers is 20 and so is he I think. It just has trouble written all over it. She agreed that it was best to tell the friend he couldnt come. I told her to grow some balls lol....... She is becoming so high maintenance I dont even like answering the phone when she calls in fear that its going to be "something". I hate to say it but I cant wait til we get down there so she can run off with her 20 year old friend and leave me alone..... grr....

sasse - that's awesome that you two have the same last name!! I'm a little sad that I can't keep my last name because it really is a part of me and my personality etc. but as i'm sure you figured from my last post, it wasn't really a negotiable deal for me. The compromise that I did get was that we could name one of our kids Riley (my last name is O'Reilly) whether it's a boy or a girl. It might not actually happen but makes me feel a little better at least. Haha, and the main benefit I see of changing last names - no more apostrophe to worry about! They are used a lot more frequently in computer programming now and I am constantly running into errors in online documents etc so at least this way using my name in an email address for example will cause a lot less headaches.

 

Tara - Well as much drama as your MOH seems to be causing, at least she's making good steps towards getting everything booked & ordered right now. The main issue is just getting her there and having her a part of your wedding and beyond that, there will be all your other guests to keep you both distracted and so much else going on that I doubt you'll have problems with her once you get to the resort. Try not to stress too much about her over the next couple months and maybe keep a bottle of liquor near the phone so that you can take a shot before answering so that you can deal with her calls better LOL!!!

I had the same name issue with my FI! I finally gave up (this one time) I figured if it was that important to him to actually make a deal of it why not?! If we have a boy I get to name him Foster, so win-win.... Well maybe not if we have a girl, oh well

    • 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
