Dthslove planning..woow

Recommended Posts

First I must say thanks to the lovely ladies who made my destination wedding possible. Without your inspiration this would not be possible. I'm sorry it took so long but my son is not giving me a chance to do anything on the computer..

When I first thought about this destination wedding I had no idea what to do and who to contact, I’m not even sure how I found this site but the Lord knows best and he led me to this lovely site of beautiful ladies who were so willing to share information.

After eliminating Jamaica from my list, because I would have too much family and friends to invite I set my heart to Dominican republic. I do not speak Spanish but it seem beautiful and the ladies here seem the world of it.


My save the date: My friend at work and I made it at vista prints.


Invitation: I loved the idea of the passport but the boarding pass seem easier and was just as nice. I did love one a boardites made but was not able to use her template since it was save into a different program.


Rings: I did not bother to get an engagement ring since we did not get one from the time he had asked me. So we went to Ultra Diamond. My ring was $1600. On sale his was $300.00 @80% off the say. We will be getting new ones for him in 5yrs.


Dress: I had not have an inspiration for the dress all I know I was going to Filenes running of the bride to get my dress. The ticket said $8000.00 I got it for $499.00. We got there about 2am and there was only 6 people inline. I went with five other helpers, we got so much dress to try on it was crazy, but FUN FUN FUN.


Suit: We got the DH suit at Ramanie’s in the Manchester mall $149.00. All the men’s pants came from there also $49.00.. IF you are getting married in the summer do not worry about finding linen. There was so much all over I had panic when I went out and could not find any in March by July there was so much at the stores.


Ladies Dress: These came from My lady in Hartford. Only $69.00

Men’s Shirt: Island importer


Bags: got those at oriental trading. At first they seem too little but the size was just right.


Shoe: His sandals came from Aldo

My shoe came from DSW


Jewelry: I found luck in TJ max. I was so lucky to find this starfish set.. LOOOVE IT!!


Favors: I got favors from pricewise. I got favors for our bachelorette party also could not help myself.


I use the cake from the hotel. My rum cake from the USA could not withstand the heat.


Hair: I just wanted a up do with a birdcage veil. Bought birdcage veil @ Davids bridals $24.00


I'm unable to upload pics so here we go..(my pics are saves in the wrong file)

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
