I have the same issue as well with having more bridesmaids, than groomsman. From previous weddings I have been in, most have had the bridesmaids walk in by ourselves and leave with a groomsman. This is what I intend to do and just have the bestman leave with both of my matrons of honor (I have two sisters thus two matron's of honor).

I have been in weddings were I have walked down with a groomsman as well, however, in this situation, there were even number. But the best man waited with the Groom at the alter so the Maid of Honor walked down by herself and left with the Best Man. If you did it this way, it would create a bigger problem with numbers as well or you could have to two bridesmaid escort each other? Maybe your WC will have some suggestions regarding this as she has probably come across it before.

Are you doing a rehearsal? I plan to do one but my concern is how long it will take, I don't want to take up everyone's day and time enjoying their vacation.

Hello Everyone!

I wanted to write and let everyone know how our wedding went and write a short review until I get my pictures loaded up. We got married on June 5th and it was absolutley perfect.

Overall Experience A

I can not to begin to tell you how perfect our wedding was. I was so nervous about everything coming together but finally I just had to let go and just hand over everything to my wedding planner and she did a terrific job. My wedding was better than I ever expected and everyone had a great time.

 

Wedding Coordinator A+++

 

Our wedding coordinator was Cristina Suarez. She did a fabulous job. From the very beginning of starting planning with her she was ahead of the game. I did get agitated once because I requested pictures of gazebos and she told me she already picked the location. After a lot of thought I decided to really just go with what she said because she has done it a bunch. So I did! From that point I didnt get stress out about any of the details and really did most of the planning when I got there. During our first meeting with her we went down a check list and I said yes or no and picked out everything. It was stress free which I needed trying to graduate college and plan a wedding. After that meeting I really didnt see Christina until the day of the wedding when she brought me my flowers. She was really great and went above my expectations.

 

The Resort B

 

This is a tough one. The resort was absolutley beautiful but it was empty. I believe they said it was at 25% capacity when we were there. They seemed to keep the grounds neat but some areas could use updated. (If we didnt go to the El Dorado on our Honeymoon- which was awesome!!! than Im not sure I would say that) Everyone that worked there was so kind and helpful. Anything you needed they would make it happen. The beach was ok (lots of seaweed..but not bad) Still very pretty. I dont think I stepped foot on the beach the entire time until we took pictures..the pools are so nice you dont even think about it.

 

ok...Well I am sorry guys but thats all I can write right now. I have to go back to work. I will write a little at a time because my schedule is so limited. I will leave you with this until next time..My pictures turned out better than expected...wonderful!!!1. The flowers were awesome just what I wanted and more and we only spent about an aditional $1500 and had an awesome reception and wedding.

I will also try to get my pictures loaded for next time. I hope everyone is having a good week and I will update soon!

 

-Jenna

    • 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!!
