Sabrina- Yes! I want to see some pics!! And I am with you. Majorly missing lounging in Mexico with a drink in my hand!

 

Chris- I got mine cleaned before my AHR and it was EXPENSIVE! I think $260!! So Tony says that I can't get it cleaned again. Haha. I am going to, but going to try to find a cheaper place. I want to sell mine and I'm assuming no one wants to buy a dirty dress.

Hi ladies! I hope my dress cleaning won't be that much! YIKES! I'm assuming I will have to get mine cleaned before our AHR.

 

As for the AHR, I don't have the option of squeezing in 10 extra people because their fire regulation limit is 100....

 

Anyway, I'm happy about it, because we are going to find a place that will do all the setup/clean up for us, so we don't have to worry about that. We will just bring our own centerpieces that I'm making, and maybe put up some lights/tulle on the headtable and that's it. We also have to see about a DJ I think. so much to do! I really may as well have gotten married here for all the work this reception has become! It's craziness!

I didn't have my dress cleaned yet either, and I have plans to get it sewn into a baptism gown...we'll see how far I get on that project!

 

Also, just as an FYI, my dress was sparkling white after my TTD session. No joke the bottom hem was all black and gray after the reception and after we took it in the water it was white again! So those of you with AHR, maybe just take the hem into the water :) I know, dangerous when you have to wear it again, but I have heard that so many brides say their dress comes out cleaner after being in the water.

Breens--- Congrats on the little Girl... that is just so exciting, now you can start getting lots and lots of pink! Any ideas on names for a little girl? If we have a girl ours would be Megan (after my bestfriend) Lillian (after my great grandmother whos wedding band is now attached to mine)

 

Teshy-- It doesn't happen everyday but at the most random times and it is pretty cool!

 

Chris- You must have been so stressed, glad it turned out ok. Hope they find your bracelet. Sad! You can enjoy the pregnanacy at around 12-13 weeks when the nausea ends and the showing stage starts!!

 

Tricia- I just wish I was able to go back and participate in a beer drinking contest with you again! hahahaha (or even have a beer or margarita at all!!!-- 6 more months!)

 

Krista-- I would just keep the venue and assume that 10 ppl won't show up, we had a ton of people who said they were coming and then didn't. Things happen!! I wouldn't stress about 10 extra ppl (just pretend they showed up and you didn't know!)

Brooke I would love to do that except they only have chairs for 100, so if 10 "extra" people show up, they wouldn't have anywhere to sit sad.gif And I'm pretty sure everyone who said they are coming will be, we called to talk to people to double check, so that we only had to move venues if we absolutely HAD to....and we do....oh well! It's actually going to be better this way, because the new place includes tableclothes, linens, setup, bar, etc, so we don't have to do anything except show up and leave when we are done! YAY!!!

Krista-- I am glad that everything worked out for you then. Thats a little bit of stress off your shoulders not to have to worry about any clean up (that was the worst part of ours was the set up and clean up!)

 

Chris-- I hope you are feeling better today and more confident that everything will be just fine! Every mommy is nervous at first and we didn't get to hear a heartbeat until week 12!

Uuugh, so I just want to cry right now...My mom and step dad just booked their tickets to come in December after the baby is born and they are only coming for 5 days. I know it seems like enough time, but I have lived in NYC for 4 years now and they have never come once to visit me and I feel like they could at least stay a whole week or so to spend time with us. Also, my mom has 2 1/2 weeks off during that time so it isn't a time off work issue. And they are leaving on the 22nd, which means they won't even try to stay for baby's first Christmas. It really hurts my feelings and I wish I didn't see the email this morning because I feel like it is totally going to ruin my day! Sorry, I needed to share as I have this big lump in my throat and no one to talk to and I have a meeting to run in an hour and I just want to crawl back in bed or in a hole...uuughh!

Sabrina, I'm sorry you're so disappointed. Do you think there's a reason why they're keeping their trip short? Maybe they're worried about encroaching on time between you, your hubby, and the new baby?

I understand what it's like to live far away from your family and not have people come visit. My brother and sister-in-law never once came to see me in the 3 1/2 years I lived in Minneapolis, and I've now lived in Alberta for nearly 3 years, and I have no hope they'll ever come to see me here, either. It really sucks.

Big hugs to you this morning...

Oh Sabrina, Sorry to hear that. sad.gif It is frustrating when people can't make the trip especially after so long of never having visited! Maybe you should talk to your mom and see if there is a reason. Like Teshy said, maybe they thought they'd be in the way for longer. You cold just mention that you're really glad that they're coming, but would love it if they could even stay longer. You'll probably be able to use a little help!

    • 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.
