I have a ton left to do too. And I'm sure I'm forgetting something.

 

~Discuss/write ceremony with FI (& figure out if we're writing vows together or separate)

~Finish getting music together

~Find aloe & sudoku for OOT bags

~2nd dress fitting is 4/22 (at some point I have to fork over a whole lotta $ for that too)

~Finalize menu & send it & guest count to Dreams

~Practice dancing with FI

~Pashmina tags

~Finish place cards (of course I can't do this yet cuz I still have people bailing & it changes the tables around, ugh!)

~Send readings to FI's sisters & my brother

~Find spa wraps for BM's

~Make spa appts for hair (me & BM's)

~Pack a bag to give to FI's brother to bring down (need that done by next week)

~Still haven't received my BD pics from Jen & I need to make my book!

~Apply for our marriage license - need go to marriage bureau twice: once to sign/apply in person & then our legal day is 5/21

~Figure out when we're supposed to pay for our reception

~All of the various & sundry things to beautify myself (wax, tanning, mani's & pedi's - thanks for the reminder, Di!)

~WORK OUT!! (I did today, so that's a start) wink.gif

 

 

Shannon, maybe you guys could make wedding albums for your parents on shutterfly or blurb as gifts? They'll love them and you won't have to stress about finding something to give them down there.

 

DianeP, I totally hear you! This whole school thing is putting a crimp in my wedding planning! What are you studying?

 

JT do you have pics of your OOT bags?

You're lists are so helpful!! Thanks Di, I totally forgot I still need to write my vows... avoiding this one big time. Me winging it up there would be a total disaster!

 

Karen - I bought hand sanitizer at Target for $1 each... although this may be cheaper at a dollar store.

Wow, working & school on the weekends?! Sounds rough! sad.gif I'm getting my master's in nursing as a family nurse practitioner. I'm not working right now (for $), but I do have clinical 1 day a week (sometimes 2) at a family clinic in the Bronx and this summer it'll be like 3 days/week.

Good to know, thanks. I need to probably go to Jersey to find a decent dollar store.


It really is good to read everyone's lists! We'll keep each other on top of our crap. :)

    • 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.
