So very confused on what goes first and this works....please set me straight!!!!

Recommended Posts

Ok, so i spend hours on this board...reading, admiring others work, and getting myself all pumped up...BUT i have no clue where to start!!!!


I really LOVE the passport idea..are these used for save the dates or as actual invites? or do you send out just a little save the date, and then send the passports like 6 months before?


Please help me, this debate is becoming a heated one amongst the "planners" aka me, my mom, and the soon to be hubby.

It's all completely up to you! i did a boarding pass as a STD, and then we are going to have some sort of formal invite (that, I am not making myself!)

MANY have gone boarding pass then the "real invite" is the passport. Equally, some do a passport as a STD and then something else for the invite. Or vice versa, or none at all.

Hopefully I've helped and not made you more confused!

thanks girls for your input....how does this sound?

the wedding is a year away (almost exactly)...i do have all the information regarding hotel, prices from TA, etc.etc.

would it be weird to use the passports as the STD, and do a formal invite prior to the wedding say like 6 weeks before with an rsvp for the AHR and/or DW?

This is something that I am planning on doing. I have an idea as to what all I am going to put on the note but what did you put? I just want to make sure I give them as much information as possible :)

    • 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.
