April 2011 Brides

Lua,

That's an awesome price for your trip.  Ours was 1100 for 4 nights for most of our guests at RIU Ocho.  Not "group" pricing though as people are traveling all different dates.  Who did you use for your TA?

I received my Umbra frame for our sand ceremony so I think I will work on getting that put tgether this week. I also found some small great orange and turquoise bottles to hold the sand which will add some pop of color to the table.  Found them at Hobby Lobby for 1.25 each last week and bought four of them.  One for each of us and one for both of my children.  This will really make them feel a part of the ceremony.  I think we will stick with neutral colored sands so that we don't tire of the bright colors years from now.

Pais

A vocês,

que nos deram a vida e nos ensinaram a vivê-la com dignidade,

não bastaria um obrigado.

A vocês,

que iluminaram os caminhos obscuros com afecto e dedicação

para que os trilhássemos sem medo e cheios de esperanças,

não bastaria um muito obrigado.

A vocês,

que se doaram inteiros e renunciaram aos seus sonhos,

para que, muitas vezes, pudéssemos realizar os nossos.

Pela longa espera e compreensão durante as nossas longas viagens,

não bastaria um muitíssimo obrigado.

A vocês,

pais por natureza, por opção e amor, não bastaria dizer,

que não temos palavras para agradecer tudo.

Mas é o que nos acontece agora, quando procuramos arduamente

uma forma verbal de exprimir uma emoção ímpar.

Uma emoção que jamais seria traduzida por palavras.

Amamos-vos muito!

Ana Paula e Nigel

I got the clear ones from discount mugs

If you buy them blank and 25 it makes them each under 3 dollars...

 

I just found these adorable ones on Etsy that I want to buy now for my bridesmaids and mothers for 10 each..I think Im gonna get them..

Im getting these with bridesmaid on one side and their name on the other along with either polka dots or flowers

Kathy, where did you get the mugs? I'm considering adding them, but not fond of spending more than $3 per person.

 

Lisa, why don't you ask the airline to change your reservation? They might only charge $50 per person to change it.

Lisa, great job on getting more things checked off the list! You definitely have a lot to do with the DW and planning a big AHR..I wish we could afford to have one but we are spending every dollar we have and then some on our wedding/ and honeymoon so no AHR for us :(

 

Brandy I am a cruise fanantic! My FI and I go on one atleast once a year, sometimes twice! It is our favorite way to travel! The longest one we have been on is a week so doing this 2 wk one will be amazing! We are going to be at sea for almost a wk before getting to the islands so we are going to work on that baby making project! hehe So excited! We actually looked at the one youre doing because I really want to see the southern islands. We have done a lot of Carribean ones also! Love them!!!

 

 

Laura so excited that your dress is coming along! I hope that once mine is all done and altered I will be happier with it... Im having the train shortened right now because I didnt like the bustle style..so fingers crossed that I made a good decision!

I've decided that it's a really bad thing for my checking account for me to stay home sick!  I went on the hunt for new shoes for the BM in the wedding and found a pair....but then continue to shop for myself and I've found a 4th pair of sandals I NEED to have and another pair of sneakers!  My mom said that my defense with FI needs to be, "things could be worse, I could be addicted to drugs instead of shoes!"  Gotta love mom!!

    • 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.
