I set a date!!!!

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies,

I finally made a decision and I am so excited. We are booking Dreams for our wedding on July 19, 2008. It seems so far away but everyone is telling me it will be here before you know it. I was hoping for a earlier date but Cabo is so popular the dates are limited. Well I will be starting my new job this August as a teacher and will be off this summer. What can I start planning this summer for my wedding? I feel like its too early for most things but I would like to take advantage of the time I will have as I know I will be busy as a first time teacher later this year. Any advice would be great. Somehow setting a date makes it feel so much more real. I still can't believe I am getting married!!!

Jess

CONGRATULATIONS.....you are just a few days after me!! I know it feels like a long time away but at least we have time to get all the details and decisions made ahead of time!! smile159.gif

 

I have started on my Save the Date cards so I can give my guests lots of time to save their money to come down there. This way we know if we will need more rooms than is on our room block too!! I also started a website with all the travel details and accomadations on it as well.

Congratulations Jess! Getting the venue locked down is a biggie- now you can get on to the fun stuff! Have you decided on a photographer? They book up really fast too. Do you plan to have a videographer, DJ, etc? You might think about booking those early too. Let us know what we can help you with!

How Exciting...Congrats'

 

I am getting married on June 19, 2008...one month before you! I have booked my photographer and working on the videographer. Mariana at Dreams has been so helpful. I still have a lot of questions Im working on for planning though.

 

Im working on our website and Save the Dates right now. I am a teacher too, so summer is def. the time to get things done! Its amazing..time really flies we got engaged in December (Christmas Eve) and June 08' seemed so far away...but its seriously not.

 

We will have to share some ideas~ Take Caresmile159.gif

Yay, congrats on picking a date!!! :)

 

You're on the right track with the STDs, and website. And the other girls are right about the photographer, I'd consider booking your photographer as soon as you can as well (I just booked my photographer this week for my wedding next May)... hell, you can even start dress shopping. One of the dresses I found (and loved) had to be ordered 7-8 months ahead of time (although I think most are around 4-5) So you can give yourself lots of time there too.

    • 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!!
