Any 2011 Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

welcome back Mexbride!

It must be weird (eye-opening) experience to goto an underfed country when you are from an overfed country!

Nice shoes! and BM dresses!  I will wait for the Spring when everyone is done with their ho ho ho holiday weight gain and loss before getting the bridal party outfits!  I learnt that from my friend who got an overfed BM who couldnt zip up her BM dress 2 weeks before the weddingoops.gif!

Haha that poor girl! I'm not too worried about my bridesmaids, they've all pretty much been the same size for all the years I've known them. Their weights don't really fluctuate. Except my MOH who is 8 months pregnant right now! But she just got a huge size and is having it altered in the spring. Malawi was an incredible experience. Though I work in international nutrition, so I've been to many developing countries and have seen the worst many times, unfortunately:( I love what I do though, and always feel a great sense of accomplishment at the end of a contract!

 

 

DiamondGirl - Thank you! So do I:) I wear them around the house all the time hahaha.

Hi everyone!

 

I've been a member (and huge fan) of this forum for about a year now, and I figured it was time to actually say "hi!"  I'm getting married on February 5, 2011 at The Royal PDC...definitely coming up, and I still can't believe it!  

 

It IS impossible to lose any weight right now!  I'm just hoping I can get really serious about dieting in January right before the wedding.  I only want to lose another 5 pounds or so (assuming I don't GAIN anything in the next couple of weeks! =P), so I'm hoping that I can pull it off.  

 

Nice to "meet" you all!

 

~Sarah

Mexbride,

 

it always feels great when u are doing smth that can make a difference!

 

Smille50,

You should ask Mexbride, since she is an expert in nutrition.  You are right! Holiday is a challenge, I am in charge of the food this year, when I look at the menu...errrr...it doesn't look like anything for anyone who wants to be on diet! lol.  Except for my mom, everyone in my family are under-weight, so we tend eat until we get bellied up! lol

I can give plenty of good dieting advice, but as I write it I would be on my 30th snickerdoodle cookie of the day haha. Even nutritionists can't resist holiday treats!! My best advice during the holidays is to just work out more. I've increased my workouts to feel better about the increase in yummy food I've been taking in.

Oh, and a very interesting fact for all of you... my thesis research is on breakfast, and there is overwhelming proof that people who skip breakfast are more likely to be overweight! Your metabolism doesn't really kick in until you eat. So if you wait till noon to eat, you've missed out on hours of calorie burning that would happen if you just ate something. There is also overwhelming evidence of breakfast consumption increasing short-term memory, attention, and overall mood (note: these effects occur only if you have complex carbs for breakfast - so eat high-fiber cereal, whole wheat toast, or something along those lines). So everyone should make sure they never miss breakfast!:)

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
