THINGS I WOULDN"T CHANGE
My meet an greet bar-b-q before we left. Doing this gave everyone a chance to meet and become comfortable with each other.
Giving out my oot bags at the meet and greet, it saved me having to transport 40 oot bags on the plane.
OOT bags, everyone loved them, I am so glad we did this, the bag itself everyone used all week, it made where people were sitting at the pool and beach easy to find.
Travel mugs, most used item all week, EVERYONE used them and still are. (I was glad I personalized them without using our names, it felt more like a gift for our guests this way)
Going a week before everyone else, it allowed us to spend some down time with our kids.
My invitations. Liam made them and they are a wonderful keepsake, and they cost me about 25 cents a piece.
My wedding dress I love it, and it was under my budget, I also am glad I decided to wear a veil, I loved everything I wore from undies to jewellery.
Having our children as our wedding party and letting them pick what they wanted to wear. They were all beautiful!
Everton wearing a suit, he was so handsome, and his suit was perfect.
Writing our own vows, they were perfect for us.
Our siblings saying an irish blessing for our loved ones we had lost.
Having our ceremony right before sunset it was the perfect sky.
The trio. They were wonderful and added the right ambience to our day.
Coctail at the ceremony site, it was a thoughtful touch that was appreciated.
The fans. Everyone used them
Reception on the beach, it was a perfect night, and dancing on the beach was fun.
My guest favours. Everyone loved the claddagh coins and touchstones.
Doing my own makeup, inexpensive, and I looked natural.
TTD this was the absolute highlight of our trip.
Farewell dinner. Gave us all a chance to be together, we also gave thankyou shell necklaces to everyone. I am glad we did this. THINGS I WOULD CHANGE
LOCATION, I should have gone to Mexico, or Jamaica. Disappointed in the service, and the humanity in the Dominican Republic.
I should have hired a videographer, no one taped our ceremony in full.
I should have asked my sil to oversee that the reception venue was set up the way it was suppose to be.
I should have asked my friends to make sure the cigars and guest book were put out, since my wc didn't care.
I should have asked for more help getting my children ready, and making sure Liam had eaten.
I should have had a microphone, it was hard for people to hear over the waves.
I should have handed the photographer a list of pictures I wanted, not just verbally told him.
I shouldn't have ordered bouts for the boys, I didn't like how they looked.
I should have just done my own music, the dj was a waste of money.
I should have tasted our cake, I hear it was great. I shouldn't have ordered enough for everyone, it was a lot of wasted cake.
I should have gone to another resort!!
I should have got Drunk, hehehe, then everything that went wrong maybe wouldn't have bothered me so much! THING I ABSOLUTELY DID RIGHT MARRIED EVERTON
