Autumn's Texas-Sized AHR

Recommended Posts

Thanks for posting Autumn! I loved your wedding planning thread - this one is amazing too. Good recycling you did :) I am doing a Maryland theme for my AHR - gotta love the down home ideas you can get from where you grow up!

 

How did you address gifts? Did you say no gifts? Did you expect them? Just curious b/c I am sending out my invites now.

Thanks Amy! We definitely did not expect gifts, but having a bridal shower and AHR I knew people would want ideas. I didn't put anything about gifts on our invites, but did put this on our website: While your presence at our wedding is enough, we have registered at a few stores if you are you looking for some gift ideas. Our website was included discreetly on our invites. For my bridal shower that was in Texas a bunch of people actually gave us gifts off of the registry. I just returned them before I left and then re-bought them when I got back to Phoenix. No one brought any gifts to the DW. But the AHR ended up with a ton of cards. I think it helped that my mom always reminded people that we had to travel and not give bulky gifts. Hope that helps!

Thanks Autumn, thanks a good idea. I am going to add that to my website.

 

Not only do we live far away, but we have to pay 25% import duty on all gifts or new things coming to the island! Thank god I bought a cheaper wedding dress - I had to pay 25% to bring it here to get altered!

    • 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.
