October 2010 Brides?

Recommended Posts

Nikki, I'd love to share some humidity from here, but I agree vegas is so dry. My hands and skin gets so dry everytime I go (not real frequent but once every couple of years). Its been mid 90's and super high humidity. I was drenched after sunrise kickboxing this morning (outside by the river at 6am).

Not much wedding planning this week, busy with other stuff: end of residency year cookout, friend from out of town, bunco on monday (11 neighbors at the house for apps/dessert) plus Fathers Day sunday... will worry about wedding next week. I'm feeling okay with the wedding stuff for now.

Heartbeat, congrats on the baby and welcome to the group!!

Ahhh I am jealous of sunrise kickboxing by the river!!! How amazing! :) Yeah my hair and skin turned so dry out here!! UGH! But that humidity is awful (I'm from Nebraska before here) so I feel your pain!

What a fun fun week ahead! :) I think it's good on the sanity (and the fiances) if we all take some small (note: small) breaks from wedding planning. :)

Heartbeat: I second the other posts. Welcome and congratulations!

Now that my invitations are out, I fell like I don't have anything to do! Can that be right? I can't really do OOT bags until I know how many people ... I feel like I've done most everything else. I'm sure I'm forgetting something!

heartbeat- Congrats on the baby and welcome!

 

Well as far as planning goes, I ordered the mini jars for our favors that we are going to fill with M&Ms. And I got an email from my WC (a massive email with ton of things to decide on) and one of the things in it was about the DJ. I didn't even think about it, but I have to start picking songs for everything. Pre-ceremony, ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, dancing, cake cutting, slow songs, do not play list, etc. I am horrible at picking songs so I have been reading everything I can here under Music & Entertainment. We have a sound system for the ceremony and cocktail for my ipod that is included in the wedding package, then we are having a DJ for the reception. Has anyone else started this yet?

Welcome aboard!! What whitening product are you using? I'm def going to do that as well, and (gasp) give up coffee the month before. I have 8lbs to go to get to my ideal weight so I'm starting my hardcore diet July 10th. And starting with pedicures every 3 weeks. My feet are tore up from running so they need some major help to get into wedding shape!

Welcome! What at home kit are you using? I want to whiten my teeth too. I need to lose at least 20lbs (I would like 25lbs) by the wedding. I wish I would have been able to get myself to loose the weight a few months ago since my BD session is on 7/11 and it would have been nice to be at a size I feel good in. I also want to tan for the wedding, but I wonâ€t start that until a month before. I am going to get acrylic nails put on about a month or so before and I want to start getting pedicures. I would love to get a facial or two but I donâ€t think I will have the money for that.

    • 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.
