January 2010 brides!!

Recommended Posts

I can't believe I just found this site now! I'm a January bride too. Getting married at the ROR on January 17th.

 

Here's the things I've done:

 

- ordered wedding dress

- ordered bridesmaid dresses

- designed, printed and mailed invitations (that was A LOT of work but so worth it!)

- confirmed with resort and chose wedding location

- designed pre-wedding brochures (I just finished these today). I plan on mailing them in November

-Found someone to watch the pup while we leave for a week

 

To Do's

- find a photographer

- create "welcome to jamaica" booklets and possibly OOT bags..still on the fence about this one too. Seems like a lot of work and might cost a lot of money too!

- get wedding bands

- get groom and groomsmen clothes

- get stuff for decoration

- design thank you cards from engagement party (just had this last weekend) thinking of doing postcard pictures but have NO idea where i can do this...

 

 

This stuff is STRESSING ME OUT!

isaidyes - Just take a deep breath and don't stress out too much! Just take it one day at a time. Look at it this way, at least you have some things completed! cheesy.gif

Sorry I haven't kept up much lately. Work has been crazy busy (14-17 hour days for me!).

Glad to see everyone is checking things off their lists. I think I'm pretty ahead of the game so far. Just received my invites today, so am hoping to get them out next week! Plus I'm officially married (did our legal ceremony earlier this month)!

 

Still need to do:

 

programs

wedding bands

shoes, jewelry

send invites

music list

wedding party/parents gifts

clothes for the honeymoon/trip

book out hotel for honeymoon

purchase favors

 

Ok, now it seems like I'm not so far ahead!

 

Thanks for keeping me motiviated ladies! I was JUST telling my husband that I had my first wedding stress dream too. Yikes! Time IS flying by.

Hope everyone is coming along with their plans too, and getting sleep.

BTW, Lisa, I love your pumpkin!! So cool!

Happy Halloween everyone!

Glad I'm not the only one! We finally have a day off together on Tuesday so we plan on going to finally get our rings. Plus I now need to have my engagement ring resized since I've finally lost some weight.

I can't believe November is already here....where did October go?!! Eeek!!

Yikes, forgot about the re-sizing thing for rings...my FI lucked out and got the perfect size for the engagement ring so I guess we assumed the same thing would happen once we chose our rings...! DOH! GOtta get on that.

 

Is anyone else getting married at the ROR? From what the wedding planner has told me via email, it seems to me that most of these decisions occur during the meeting we have with her when we arrive. Am I wrong?

    • 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
