Danielle, that is awesome. I wish i had your organizational skills. Mind you, it might have helped if we hadn't decided, hmmm ... 2.5 months ago, to have a DW in January 2010!

Ladies, i have my first appointment tomorrow, wish me luck! Though i was in the Le Chateau warehouse store today and found this awesome strapless, empire waisted, A-line short length dress for $10! Can you imagine? If it had been down to the ground, i would have bought it and called it a day!

Thanks! Fingers and toes crossed i have the same good luck!

It's amazing how you can have a set, defined idea of what you want in a dress, and end up liking different styles as well once they're on you! Talk about confusing things :) I'm taking a wee road trip down south to see if i have any more luck south of the 49th :P

 

Any of you ladies doing a TTD session? And if so, how many of you are using your actual wedding dress? Or buying a cheaper second one?

I am doing the TTD. I did get abother dress to use but after talking to the ladies in the bridal store I think I am just going to use mine. They relaxed my nerves that it won't actually ruin it and I should still be able to use ut again if I have an AHR, as long as I get it cleaned!

I haven't really decided yet seeing as my aunt has made my dress and i'm not sure I want to do this. Maybe if my aunt isn't coming to the wedding...lol. I really can't to go out and find something cheap in my size so I honestly don't know. I would really love to do one, but I'll see I guess.

That's true. As far as I know, TTD sessions aren't as strenous as an Iron man triathalon :P As far as getting wet, will you have it dry cleaned / cleaned at the hotel before you bring it home or hang to dry?

That is so true about not actually wrecking it. I love the idea of having fun photos taken in the dress you actually got married in.

I'm stoked to report i found a dress, finally! I couldn't decide between these 2 styles:
David's Bridal - Satin A-line gown with twist strap detail, ruched waist, and bow in back.

David's Bridal - Chiffon soft A-line with beaded lace on empire waist and back train

In the end, the strapless won out (chiffon vs. a heavier satin, so i can use it in the TTD!). If the strapped v-neck had been a lighter satin, chiffon, taffeta, i would have bought it hands down!

Now, onto the other 99 things :P

I love that dress too Joss! So pretty and will perfect for a DW!

 

On another note, I need your advice ladies. So, I've been working with the caterers on finding a private villa for our ceremony/reception. Long story short, the one they found is very beautiful, and since there was nothing else out there, I decided to go ahead and say yes to it. We were about to send in our deposit, but my mother had a little accident so it delayed us sending it. Meantime, I got a call back from another villa owner saying their place may be available. Now, I'm afraid to tell the caterers that we found another villa (which is bigger, on the beach, and exactly what I had envisioned) and will not be sending them money for theirs! We still want them to cater our wedding, but they have been so patient and understanding about my mother, etc.

I just don't want to piss them off! I feel so bad about this, but in the end, I want the other villa. We communicate by email, and I'm going to have to send one explaining what has happened. UGH, I dread this!

Do any of you think this is really bad of me? I plan to apologize profusely to them since they have been so nice. Any suggestions? I just hope they don't think I was lying about my mom, etc. So stressed about this!

Thanks for listening ladies!

    • 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!!
