April 2010 Brides

Recommended Posts

It's awesome that you're all getting limos to the airport or to your resort. FI and I live less than a ten minute drive from the airport here so the only reason it would really be worth it for us would be if we had all of our friends that are leaving with us that day to take it as well - and that's not a half bad idea either! A few of them are probably leaving their cars up near our place as it is to save on cab fair once they get back ($25 including tip and airport exit fees!).

 

We also had our transfer included from the airport to the resort in MX and figured that since there is such a good size group of us together anyways, the bus ride would just be more entertaining than going by ourselves!

great job this weekend erin!! Wow! Your flowers and bouts look GREAT and I hope that mine come out as nice!

And I really like both your rings too! My FI got a tungsten one that is mostly black as well and he was SO happy that it's not a "typical" looking band.

 

I have half of my OOT bags done now (yep, I packed the contents in ziplock bags so that we can pack the actual bags nice and flat and just fill them once we get down there!) and then I also finished my favours as well. Haha they're in ziplocks too because it's easier to pack everything that way and assemble quickly at the resort. If my girls help me out it should only take about ten minutes! I'm trying to leave as little as possible for once we're down there because I don't want to take away anyone's time in the sun - including my own!!

 

The only two real items of my DIY are my little gifts for the mom's and gramma's (hankie boxes that I'm making) plus my flowers of course which are being delivered TODAY! YAY! I'll be putting FI to work tonight cutting out the little name tags I made to put on everyone's OOT bags as well so hopefully that should do it!

I've realized that I'm horrible at getting my pictures posted but I'll try this week now that things are all coming together!

Oh- you just reminded me that I need to pick up a tonne of ziplock bags so that I can start packing this weekend (early I know, but we leave here in two weeks so I need to pack soon). That's a great idea about ziplocking the favours. I think I'll do that too, my little albums should just fit in a smaller bag and that way I won't be worried about something spilling on them or the ribbon catching on stuff.

I agree about not leaving stuff for when I'm down there. Once I get to the resort I want to relax, not spend time indoors fiddling with my favours and programs and things. This weekend is my big wedding weekend, and then all I'll need to do will be put candy in and ribbon around our mugs.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
