Teria - Thanks :) She's gorgeous and I love that I have her genes! Haha!

 

Lua - The flowers are sooo pretty! I love them!

 

Lisa - Where did you find your little tea light holders? I've looking for something similar to go around my centerpieces. Oh and about the hair. It varies so much! I know people who've spent over $200 on clip on hair... My hair was around $100 after taxes but I got the 2nd longest they offered... because I'm planning on curling it... once it's curled it's just at my boobs pretty much. It was also a little more because it's blond and the place I bought it is primilary for African American girls (they have 2 shades of blond, no lies). But it's awesome to have a hook-up who can do it for cheap for you. I'm lucky that my little sister is an esthetician... so she'll be doing all mine/bridal parties/moms makeup, mani's, pedi's, etc.. (she'll be busy, haha)

Lisa - thanks for the words of encouragement with the coordinator!  Everything I have is written via email, that's how we have been communicating, so I should be good there.  I have saved all of my emails!  I'm waiting to hear back from her to get the new girls email so I can get in contact with her and make sure we are on the same page!  Also - LOVE the centerpiece's!

Ella-Thanks and I am glad you are on the ball cause they do try to go back on their word sometimes from my experience but like you I now put it all in email even if we have a phone conversation I follow up with an email confirmation. My travel agent quit and we did everything over the phone and she said things to me that took me a while to get honored with the new agent and manager. What a disaster that was but it is getting sorted out now and seems to be going better. She pretty much dropped the ball on everything. Wrong names and requests and never even sent out invoices and receipts which I didn't even know were necessary so we are picking up the pieces now. But hey it will all come out in the wash as my grandma always says lol

    • 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!!
