No idea, sorry. I guess ordering online at this point is out of the question or cost prohibitive?

That's where I noticed it first last time, so now I'm worrying that I'm gonna gain weight again and that my dress won't fit! I *am* much more happy this year with my FI than before I met him, and he looooves to eat, so that could explain this new weight gain... as long as I don't gain more than 5 pounds I should be ok...


And you're so nice, saying you'll come back to cheer me up. cheesy.gif
I guess the grass is always greener on the other side: you wish you had more time to prepare, I think I have wayyy too much time. LOL
Well, a few months to the wedding you'll probably lose some pounds because of the stress, no so worry! And with your dress, if you get the weight in the thighs, it shouldn't be a problem.

I wanted to go shopping in Chinatown for some parasols, guess that is out of the question. :-(

Tonight I'm the one needing French help. When we return, I want to send out a nice picture of us, with a very simple announcement wording, just so everyone knows "the news". Now I'd love to do "Julie & François, Just Married, April 7th 2010, Negril, Jamaica", but there is no French equivalent that I know of (and all our family & friends are francophones). I'm thinking maybe:

 

- J&F, Mariés le 7 avril 2010, Négril, Jamaïque

- J&F, Unis le 7 avril 2010 sur la plage en Jamaïque (now the picture will show us on the beach, maybe too much?)

 

Any other idea along those lines? Would you prefer "Mariés ou Unis"? Or maybe just our names & date: "J&F, 7 avril 2010, Jamaïque"? My boyfriend is of no help at all, this announcement is strictly my idea, and "Anything sounds good my love"...

Carribean Lover, would love to hear about your bachelorette party. :-) How was it? What did you do? Where did you go?

 

Ewok, I prefer Mariés to Unis. How about:

- Nouveaux Mariés, le 7 avril 2010, Négril, Jamaïque

- Nouvellement Mariés, le 7 avril 2010, Négril, Jamaïque

Yeah, Saying "sur la plage" might be too much if you have a picture of the beach.

 

As for my news, our invitations are almost done! The letter part (which looks more like a brochure now) is done and we are just waiting on the Boarding Pass (sort of a STD). So excited! And kind of impatient... His cousin must hate me by now! (J/K) LOL

Hum, I really like the sound of "Nouvellement Mariés". It's a tad long, but still manageable. Or I might only put our names and dates... This stuff is so hard!

 

And why would your FH cousin hate you? Is he a big part of the planning process?

SHE is doing our invitations for free on her own time. I know I've been a tad pushy about getting them ASAP. I didn't really mean hate me, I was just kidding/exagerating. Though she probably is slightly annoyed by now. wink.gif LOL It's all good though, she has done an amazing job so far and we will for sure give her a gift to show our appreciation. :-)

SHE!!! Darn that English language and its lack of subtlety on gender!! (And my own obtuseness...) I was wondering how much a (HE) cousin could take part in a wedding planning, considering my own DBF is not doing anything for his own... That's cool of her to make your invites, I guess that's the price you're paying, the horrible wait! :lol:

    • 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!!
