New newbie!!! :)

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

Am excited to be on here. I am planning my wedding on my very own, and our choice of location is still undecided. But it will definitely be a.next summer, and b. sunny! :)


I am not one of those by-the-book planners, and so am planning little bits and pieces as they seem right to me. Unconventional? Maybe! But what "feels" right is important to me. When it does, it just fits into place, and when it doesnt, its all out of place. Make sense? It only has to make sense to me!-OOPS, i mean "us" - me and my fiancee. Have to get used to this! :)


That having been said, I thought this forum would be a great place to get ideas, share ideas, vent, de-stress (lets face it, its stressful!) and be part of a bride-to-be community!


To sharing the journey with you!

Congrats! And Welcome To BDW!


I know exactly how you feel. My fiance and I have planned everything and are paying for everything on our own. And so we've just been doing everything little by little as we go along. We were also undecided on a location at first, then finally found one only to see actual pictures of the resort on Trip Advisor...cringe...and switch again. But we are very satisfied and pleased w/ our current location. I'm very grateful to have found this site even w/ my wedding 1 month away, I've found alot of ideas and useful information.


~Happy Planning To You

    • 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.
