Just wanted to give everyone a quick review of the Bridal Expo yesterday I had a really great time, I came home with a TON of leaflets, cards, bags, gift cards, magazines, etc. It's true that most of it wasn't applicable for destination brides, but it was still a fun experience! I think those events are great when you're first starting out planning, or if you weren't so heavily involved in a forum like this one. One highlight was a wedding planner who does destination weddings - she had an album of the best photographer in Punta Cana (in her company's opinion) - it was the photographer we've already booked!! Guess we made a good choice (HDC Photography, in case you're wondering) The fashion show was a blast too, it was fun to see all the dresses and lingerie, and the boys showing off tuxes were hilarious! (they're dancers, lol)
Also, a quick update, because I did have a little rant on here a while back about the stress of needing 10 rooms booked to get our group rate...Well as of today we have 12 rooms booked!! So that's 22 guests, plus ourselves. That's probably about 2/3 of our total expected guests - what a relief!
