April 2011 Brides

Recommended Posts

It really does help knowing this far in advance so you can buy everything you need per person, know what you budget will be and plan accordingly. I am very happy I did it this way. I am also getting some maybes for the AHR in July which is totally understandable and there is one week left till the deadline on the rsvp card and I am still missing just under 2/3rds of the replies so even if they come in late it won't be a big deal. At least the people have been told and have an option of a guaranteed rate with only a 200$ deposit. Big hug back at ya! smile03.gif

We sent the STD in July and just sent an email with our website since the postal stamp on the STD card covered the website address.  Anyway, my guests need to start booking asap.  50% of my rooms must be booked by mid October and the rest by the end of December.  I must release the unbooked rooms after this date which means my guests can still book but will not receive the discounted room rate.  I have a friend working on my boarding pass invites and will be assembling them with the help of my high school gf in 2 weeks.  I am going to do a RSVP through my website.  Like someone mentioned - you know if a person is coming if they booked! cheesy.gif

Teira - I'm in the same boat. STD's are done and now the responsibility of FI to send out since I am away from home. We have one couple booked that is not immediate family but we haven't even reserved our room. Just the ceremony date and time. But at least I feel good about that.

    • 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.
