It's funny, our photographer kept our wedding party with us the whole time and afterwards I said to my husband, I don't think we have many of just us. But apparently he was taking them in between... the whole thing is a blur to me.

The major thing I would have done differently was had made someone in charge of the reception to keep the flow going. We needed an MC. It was my photographer who let us know that we were really falling behind. We did our first dance right away at the beginning which I liked, but then we took way too long for dinner. By the time we did speaches and the father/daughter dance and mother/son dance it was 9:20pm (for a reception that was supposed to end at 10pm!!) We bought an extra hour, but I really wish we could have bought two extra hours but they wouldn't let us. So yeah, I would have give someone the job of MC so that speaches could have been done during desert or something so dancing could have started earlier. But anyway, it's all irrelevant now and everyone had a fabulous time. I just had this awesome playlist on our ipod and we had to cut out over an hour of it!!
Oh! and!!! use soundcheck!!! Our dinner music kept going loud and quiet. I got major flack from my big bro over that one, lol What can you do? It's a little late now.

TGIF girls!!!
Christina you are 35?? No way!! You look 26 in your pics!! I wouldn't worry about getting preggers, it'll happen, just relax and let it come...no pun intended!! blush2.gif bunny_4.gif

YAY!! I got my professional pic slide show emailed to me at midnight :) there are 215 in the slideshow and over 1500 additional shots. If I had a do-over, I would have taken more shots with our daughter alone. She was so excited for the special day and so far I have no shots of just her and I or of just her and her dad. I don't know what the mass majority of the pics look like so maybe we did take those shots, I just don't remember them. Also, I wish I had taken some with my parents individually. Oh well, the day was perfect and I won't cry over the "mistakes" I think we made. Now I can't wait for that video. I did good not to cry during the photo slideshow, but the video just might make me shed a few. I will post them later. I am sooooo late for work. Talk with you later lovlies

In the grand scheme of things we really only need a handful of good photos. I mean, how many are actually going to end up in a frame at the end of the day. Of the teasers I have seen, there are a couple very beautiful photos of the three of you together and those should certainly make you happy. You are a very gorgeous family btw. Can't wait to see the rest!!!

*Still anxiously awaiting my pro pics. I think I might email him requesting a teaser photo.

Hey lovely ladies, a quick question to all you who have been lucky enough to get wed at this resort already and be a Mrs :-)

This is an AI resort right? Ok so i have read if you want an open bar in the resturant you have your reception at you have to pay $9 per head so they dont just serve house beer and house wine, is this right? (not that were bothered but guests might be) so just looking at all angles......

Also on any other "normal" day cocktails, Vodka's, Bacardi etc are part of the AI package? so why charge at your reception?

    • 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.
