Any 2011 Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

Nicola - thanks for the welcome back! :) I am definitely doing a bachelorette party, although I'm not sure where we'll do it or what we'll do. The majority of my friends are in the DC area, so it'll probably be there. I've always dreamed of having it in Vegas, but since I'm asking them all to go to Mexico for the wedding, I don't think I can also ask them to do Vegas for the bachelorettesad.gif

 

Amber - I'm doing classes now, and starting on research for my thesis. Then all of next year will be research and thesis writing. Ugh. I dread that more than the classes! I just don't know how I'll get myself to sit in front of a computer and do my thesis when all I want to do is look at wedding stuff, haha.

Very nice dress!! I won't start dress shopping until it gets warmers like 10C or more outside! However I really like Vera Wang's dresses.

Mexbride83, the thesis is what I dreaded the most too. I love research and conducting it, but writing the proposal and the protocol for the human subjects review board kinda sucks! Due to various reasons, I just completely changed my research idea. Which is a little crazy b/c I was done with the proposal and all I had to do was present it to my committee. What are you thinking about doing your thesis on or do you not have any idea? Haha, I hear you on wanting to do wedding stuff instead of school stuff, I'm in the same "boat." My school is technically on spring break right now and I should be doing a whole lot more but I rather spend my time doing wedding stuff :)

 

Linhy, Congrats! The dress is beautiful. I agree with bringing in the bottom especially since it's a destination wedding. I love how it is simple & elegant. Did you try on any veils? I can't wait to see you in it!

Awww, thanks Michelle2011... I hope my sis can come too :-) I live in hope :-) Yeah were like you really, i'll be sending invitations, but really it is one of them.... if people want to come then were more than happy for them to come, so even if ppl tag on last min i wont mind.... were certainly asking in a casual way aswell, to keep the pressure off ppl feeling like they have to say yes but cant really afford it... we not getting ourselves into debt to get married so i definatly wouldnt expect anyne else to!!! x

FutureMrsYak.... Hey Im so pleased i sent my vibes in time!!!! Congratulations on getting your date confirmed and correct hopefully the few things wrong will be easy enough for you (or TA) to sort out. 10 months for you... wow... thats scary, and about the AHR. Oh my god, i dont even know what were doing with that!!! I think i'll thnk about that once weve got the wedding booked!!! :-) Kinda difficult for us as well as we dont really know what to do as my family live in England and my FI's family live in Scotland and its about 175 ish miles away from each other.... Argh, dont know what to do!!!!

It just goes to show how different it is in the U.S than the UK when it comes to booking things, you guys are so lucky to be able to book rooms and reserve dates or whatever else you can do ready for when actual cost becomes avail, we cant flippin' do anything :-(

Welcome back Mexbride83... thought id not seen you about!!! Good to have u back :-) sound like youve been a busy bee!!! Thats a fantastic idea what your doing with TTD... & i know what you mean with a thinking a DW wedding was stress free.... but thats not the case all the time!!! haha :-)

Linhy.... So glad you think you have your dress. Did you go back with your mum? how did you get on? so exciting!!!

Mischaka... im like you and have been window shopping for everything. just need to plan when to get what and where....

I wa asked a question at work today from a girl i work wth about having a "Hen Night" or "Bachelorette party" i think you ladies would call it in America? and this is yet another thing i have not yet thought about... i know we have ages yet but im scared im going to miss something and 2011 is going to be here before i know it and i wont have planned anything.... Are you lovely's doing anything? if so what are you doing? are you doing more than one thing?

Thanks ladies

Nicola,

I am planning a hen night aka bachelorette party for my friend who is getting married in July this year. Private striptease dance lesson for the group of chicks, dinner, male striptease joint visit and karaoke for the rest of the night.

I didn't really plan on having a bachelorette party. if anything me and girls will just hang out the night before at the resort. I'm not a drinker and I don't really enjoy strippers. lol

Amber- Oh I know what you mean about human subjects protocol forms... ughhhh I'm in the midst of those as we speak! My research/thesis is on the School Breakfast Program in Alabama. Basically less than 40% of the children that qualify for the SBP actually participate in it, so I'll be doing focus groups with children, parents, and administrators to determine the barriers to participation in the SBP. The findings from those groups will be what I'll use for my thesis, on benefits of and barriers to participating in the SBP in Alabama. It's actually a part of a 5 year study that my professor has funding for, so I didn't get any choice as to what I would do, as my Masters is paid for by my doing research for her:)

 

What is your thesis on? What are you studying?

    • 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.
