June 2010 Brides!

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

I noticed every month in 2010 seems to have its own "support" thread except June 2010, so I thought I should remedy this. Just want to know how everyone's planning is going, I am getting so excited - it's crazy how fast the last year has gone.

 

Hope to hear from others soon - it seems like June is a pretty uncommon month for weddings, it's ok with me - less will be going on at our resort when we are there :).

Congrats on getting your invites out, have you chosen your dress yet? I have mine waiting for me at the bridal salon - can't wait to get alterations (they told me to wait until about 1-2 months before to get the final sizing done).

 

Has your FI decided what he's going wear?

Hi, I am a June bride as well. Probably not my first choice in months but working in the schools you don't get to choose your vacations and I really wanted to be able to relax and enjoy the wedding without worrying about getting back to work. I can't believe only 5 months left. The time has flown and there is still so much to do. So where are you guys in the planning stage (not sure if I really want to know so I freak out that I don't have anything ready). Good luck with everything and keep me updated on your progress.

I'm a June bride too, and still haven't got my dress (!). I think it's narrowed down though so that I could order it in the next week or so, but between that and the invitation hunt, I feel the pressure!

Hey everyone,

 

I did notice that there wasn't a June board too! Thanks for creating one... But I think we're all in the invitations/getting our dresses mode. I have my dress but will wait a little longer to get alterations. I'm planning on taking care of getting invitations printed within the next few days.

Same here, I'm in medical school (so his my FI) so we didn't have much choice, I finish school on May 21 and we leave a week after. Here's hoping for great weather :).

I actually sent out invites a long time ago, in early fall - but that's just because I didn't do STDs. I have been engaged since last Christmas though, so I have had awhile to do everything.

We have the BM dresses, my dress, flowers all ready to go. I have also purchased BM gifts (mostly). I made a guestbook using our engagement photos...My biggest concern right now is trying to nail down a definite number so I can work on my favors and such. I also plan to do a few DIY projects but I'm going to rely a lot on what the resort provides.

Hello fellow June brides. I too am getting married in June at the Dreams Resort in Cancun. June 8th is the wedding day. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it.

 

I have been working on the OOT bags, sent out our STD's (we aren't doing formal invites in addition to the STD's), guestbook has been started, welcome books, bookmarks, pre-travel brochures, pre-travel CD's and luggage tags will be sent out to those that have booked already this week.

 

I feel like there is sooo much more to do and time is going to go so fast! I can't wait! I look forward to hearing from the rest of you as the time gets closer!

Ha ha. Reading all the posts makes me feel alternately calm because I'm at the same stage as others, but then nervous for being behind.

 

I'm glad to be finished with the invitations, but we've already been talking to a lot of our guests since we plan on booking their airline and hotel ourselves.

 

We're pretty non-traditional and not too worried about a lot of the details. Luckily, I do have my dress, but only because it's something I already had in my closet. I've known for a long time that I didn't want to wear a traditional wedding gown. I just need to have it taken in slightly.

 

FI will be wearing khaki shorts and ivory button down, short sleeve shirt, but we have to wait until warm weather clothes show up in the stores here in the Mid-Atlantic U.S. Same for girls' shopping trip with my sister (BM), my mom and FMIL.

 

I've been working on collecting ideas for our ceremony script (FI's longtime friend will be officiating) and for OOT bags.

 

I think the next thing will be to start thinking about rings.

 

I'm so impressed with some of your DIY lists. I just barely managed to do the invitations without losing my sanity ;-)

Thanks sjmacphe for starting this thread!

 

I'm getting married on June 12 at the Gran Bahia Principe Tulum in Mexico... I cannot wait! June is definitely not my first choice either because oddly I can't stand to be hot! But being from Wisconsin I'd definitely take it over the snow/cold we've got going on right now.

 

I've got my dress and am working on getting my invites out... they're DIY so I'm about half way done... really need to get them out in the next week or 2.

 

FI and I jsut went shopping to pick out his outfit this past weekend... he's wearing a plain white oxford with a tan dress pant... will probably roll the sleeves.. he's also going to wear a fuschia/orange tie if I can find one. We also went ring shopping for his band... and found one that he likes and it's a steal - so I'm really happy about that!

 

Next on my list is the OOT bags... even the thought of that is overwhelming... but exciting too!

 

June can't come quick enough but will be here before we all know it!! YEAH!

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
