I totally know how you feel! I actually told my fiance how excited I was to be a junior member instead of a noob and he just laughed at me! They just don't understand how exciting these things are

Honestly ( as u may or may not have noticed lmao) I turned into a posting queen and just started going and posting on all kinds of the threads and really ended up finding some useful stuff. I posted on this one girls thread this week about ceremony scripts strictly b/c I loved her monogram, so totally unrelated to her actual thread LOL Turns out her FI designed it and now he's going to ours for us. But yeah I know what you mean when it feels like you're forever away from getting there. Forced me to start commenting like a nut on everything and anything even if it was just to agree or say 'thanks for sharing'. You know I was like I need my 150 posts DAMNIT LMAO

And Lily no they totally don't get it. My FI is like why are u spending all this time chatting with a bunch of women you've never met?? Maybe if I explain in golf terms, it would shed some light on the situation :-s lol Mind you he seems to have picked up a liking for the Jason Mraz song from all the sites and slideshows - hee hee

My FI sounds like he's on the same boat as yours!! Golf terms would make it much simpler for him. I'm addicted to this site now and Project Wedding. I've gotten a lot of useful info from here too looking around all the different threads. I even found a ton of pictures of a beach bride that has my dress! Haven't been able to find one anywhere else!

I booked a preferred club ocean view room. I was very happy with it. We were on the 3rd floor, we had a perfect ocean view and then had a view of the pools too!

Ana a couple of months back did send me picture of start that she does, and I thought that these (ones just posted) looked way better - I would be really interested to know how to get them as well - beautiful pictures!

Thank you! Ana provided the star lanterns. I actually had no idea that she was doing that either! It was a nice surprise because they did look beautiful!! I saw them setting up for a wedding another day and they used the same lanterns but strung them up over the edge of the infinity pool (I am sure this cost extra because it took them a really long time to hang them all!) That really looked nice too!

If you don't mind me asking, how long did you have her for photography? I'm only doing the 3 hour package b/c I'm not having a fancy reception. Do you think that will be enough?
Thanks! You will love Claudia...she is so nice! I had her for 5 hours although I probably would have been okay with 4. I think that 3 hours should be enough time if you aren't having her at the reception. You can also add more time once she is there if you feel like you need more. She is very good at making sure things are moving along and that you have enough time for all of your pictures.

I know I am getting really close. 22 DAYS till the wedding!! And I have so much to do still. Nothing like putting it off to the last minute. I am hoping like all the previous brides have said it will all fall into place when I get there.

I still have not really had any contact from Ana. lol

Hey Laura.

I have a question for you did Claudia have some kind of a spot light for the pictures at night? Or is that something she did with photo shop?

I love how the pictures are so bright.

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
