We decided that since we're going to be on a beach for a whole week we might as well go somewhere where we can do nothing or do a lot of sight seeing. Depending on how exhausted we are :)
What a great choice! We too are going to Europe, but we have decided on Italy. We are waiting until August to go (I am fortunately a teacher and have all summer off). We have the Mexico wedding in June, AHR in July and honeymoon in August. We didnt want tropical either.... we will get that at the wedding!

Thanks for the info about the maracas!

I just found a website worth a look too: Mexican Sugar Skull | Offering Day of the Dead / Dia de los Muertos Mexican Folk Art, Sugar Skulls, Calaveras de Azucar, Molds and more - for the paper banner things - super cute!
Thats great thank you for the link, its super fun because some of the flags reminded me of our 'borrowed' save the dates - not sure how to incorporate these, but how fun!

Who are you having take your pictures? Are you getting married at Maroma or DRC?? BTW- In November I stayed at Secrets Capri and the guy there took some shots of us and they were fantastic... his name was Jaime Torres. I am in contact with him but I want to make sure we have a FANTASTIC PHOTOGRAPHER. I am big into pics and want to make sure we have some fantastic unique shots! Congrats you are getting married a week after us. When do yu arrive? We are heading to maroma for our honeymoon Sunday the 14th~
- I am super excited we booked Elizabeth Medina! got her for the day plus planning TTD, she offered the next morning, but I am going to wait and see if she has more wedding coming up that week in the area and can day it one or two days after

- The ceremony is at Secrets Maroma with a reception to follow at DRC and yes its insane :)

- Pictures were a huge deal for me too, Elizabeth is probably double what we had in our 'budget' is there really such a thing, ours is twice what the FI had though it would be and we are not even done yet, yikes!

- Oh fun, we arrive on Nov 14th, and will be at Secrets Maroma from Nov 18th to the 28th - hope to see you there!

Boo - I love Elizabeth Medina's work! I'm trying to figure out if she's in our budget though. I love photography so the pictures are VERY important to me, but I'm not sure yet how to convince the FI that they are very important wink.gif

Ashlynn its a tough one, for us it took about 2-3 months to get our resort situation / ceremony site all figured out and that was a big pain in the bum so by then the hubby to be just said spend whatever to make you happy - think its going to be a different story when we get the full bills for everything, but I figure you only get married once

Haha! I wish my fiance would say that! However he's in finance and is super conservative and budget conscious with money. So he gave me a dollar amount and told me to make it work. I think if I even go a penny over he'll flip wink.gif

 

You'll have to post your pictures after your wedding - I bet they'll be beautiful!

    • 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.
