Something Old, New, Borrowed and Blue

Recommended Posts

My old were two hairpins my mom wore to her highschool prom

 

My new was my dress, and an anklet that Jamie (JamisonCollete) gave me

 

My borrowed was Morgan's starfish - except that I left my bouquet in the room until after the ceremony... oops.

 

My blue was a pair of undies - from the Gap and really quite comfy!

I love it! I'll keep an eye out for ya.

I just got to thinking about it because I figured out my something old and it manages to represent a special family member who has passed. My great grandmother was irish catholic and I somehow inherited her crystal and silver rosary that had been blessed by the pope in the early 50s. I will wrap it around the ribbon of my bouquet.

I think we're going to do a martini bar for the Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue...

 

Old: Dirty Martini

New: Pomegranate Martini (since Oprah's made them so popular)

Borrowed: The signature Martini from my club- the Passion Fruit Martini

Blue: Some random martini we'll make up and have blue curacao in it..

 

What do you guys think? I'm especially proud of this creation!

    • 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.
