November 2010 Brides

Recommended Posts

We just got the ok from our WC that we can use our own bracelets instead of the hotel's bracelets....so everyone can identify each other.  FI actually wants to help make them!  love.gif

Congrads on the baby news, very exciting! although I am sure that adds a whole new stress to the planning. I am with you, I definitly enjoyed parts of the planning proces and will surely miss planning once its all going to be over, I mean really what to do with the countless hours of free time? ha ha, but then again it will be great to talk to FH about something other than bottle labels or the colour of my clutch (ha ha yes these are my two projects for the morning)

 

In terms of how close we are, I am with you ladies, I shift from feeling like we are on track to being completely and hopelessly behind. The other thing that is sorta dawning on me, is we came up with a budget, and I know I made huge efforts to stick to it but to be honest I have to idea where I am at, and with this push to finish off things I kinda am starting to care less about the price tag of things. We are both not looking forward to the debt that its adding though.

 

Have a great morning everyone!

 

 

Thanks BOO!

And at least you FI has some input on ANYTHING!! even if its the color of bottle labels...LOL..we are down to the wire, and as soon as SEPT hits Im sure we will feel it even more.

Well while I had hopes that I would have little or no severe pregnancy symptoms....I have been plagued by the morning sickness bug...its quite aweful...Its like Im uber excited but the pain and nausea is no joke! I keep telling myself that I have to endure the worst parts to get to the better end...My little sweetpea!!woot.gif But aside from baby being on the brain for the last few weeks...I havent really thought too much about the wedding...im like ugh...I want the planning to be over already..

 

I am still getting last minute RSVP'ers and I still have to do my oot bags ( I already have all of my templates ready for print and what not)...In mid sept I will have to go and get my dress altered because I will def. be bigger than I am now....I feel like I have a ton of crap to do which I have to have completed by no later than the beg of OCT....UGH..but im just all around happy and excited the way things are going right now...

I hear ya on the slowing down on planning. I think I have finally hit a wall! I am still excited, but I just feel like I need a little bit of a break. I still have to order my water bottles and the OOT bags themselves which I am going to get from discountmugs and I am just waiting for them to have another 20% off sale. They currently have a 10% off sale this week.....I'm gonna wait. I still have to go try on my dress to see if it needs any alterations, but I haven't been able to find any time, because after being away from my house for 2 months........LORD! 3more months to go...can you believe it? I haven't seen NicoleDeb around in a while, I wonder how things are going with her.

I put together my survival kits before but everything else I will put into the bags when I get there. Quite a few of my guests will be arriving before FI and I, which I don't know if I should just ask for their rooms numbers and deliver them in person when I get there or what? Alot of our guests get there Wednesday around noon. We get there Wednesday night around 9pm. Urgh! You sound like me with my veil....one minute I want one....next minute I don't. I am so undecided.

Hello Ladies!!

 

I am gettting married on November 19, 2010 at Dreams Punta Cana.

 

I think most of the things that I can plan at this point are done -wedding date and resort is booked, STD's are gone, invites gone, trip is booked, dress is purchased with shoes, wedding ceremony location and terrace for reception is booked.

 

I have 25 people booked so far and expecting 15 more to book.  I have started to purchase some things for the wedding and reception.  I ordered hand fans for people to use during the ceremony and will have one placed on each chair.  I have disposable camera's with a wedding/beach them on them for each of the guest tables and I am doing a beach bag with goodies for the wedding party and shot glass favors for guests.

 

I do have a few questions if anyone can answer.

 

I wanted to put some decoration or wrap the chair in something, roughly the same colour or shade as my bridesmaid's dresses.  Does the resort have that type of thing, or do I need to bring it??

 

I am also wondering what to do about my hair...I know I will have to get it done there, but I have no idea what the hairdressers can do.  Is it worth going through a trial run here at home and taking a lot of pics or just going and hoping for the best when I get there.

 

Any help or suggestions would be wonderful....

 

Thanks Ladies!!

 

Happy planning

Hello And congrats fellow November bride!!

 

I think the resort offers chair sashes but only in a few colors...I think your best bet would be to buy some and bring them with you...Try www.weddinglinensdirect.com/. They have every color and are very reasonable aka CHEAP!

 

I would also start looking online for some hair inspiration pics top bring with you...I was told that the salons/ spas on the resort are pretty goood if you are specific to what you want...They work better with Pics, so if you show them what you want they can mirror/match it...I think that would be your best option...It makes it easier if they can see what you want rather than having hair trial and ERRORS....

 

Good Luck!

    • 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.
