April 2011 Brides

Recommended Posts

OMg the April girls are definitely going to rock the plannng threads!!! can't wait to see them all finished!! :)

 

I've been working on mine and plan to post the day or 2 before I go.  FI has to work the mon&tues before we leave, so that will give me something to do rather than just be hyper! lol

Teira - I totally agree! It will be so exciting to everything that we have all picked in one place. We have to find a venue and a date for our AHR too.

 

Brandy - I think you should post it soon and then add the remaining pictures later if you have to. I know you have already been working on it so I'm am so excited to see yours.

 

Today I made another DIY decision. Originally, I wanted maracas as favors but figured people might lose them or just forget them at dinner. So today I was inspired to make labels for either Rolos (to look like cigars, and I also always liked their slogan "I'd give you my last Rolo") or Caramilk bars. Anyone have a creative saying for either one? I also figure they might be a cute gift for the servers since Caramilks are only readily available in Canada.

yay!!! finally our WC has confirmed that she got all of our notarized paperwork and all is a-ok!! she's going to email me thursday with more information to finally start planning the day!! it's been making me nervous not knowing any details yet!!! at least she's told me that we aren't going to have to pay as much extra $ as I thought for our extra guests :)  we went with the FREE wedding package which accomodates us and 10 guests. Each additional guest is only $10.50/pp for extra cake, champagne and set up so that's really pretty reasonable in my mind! :)

Brandy - Those invites look great!!!

 

Erin - Congrats on booking the AHR venue!! That must be a huge load off!! We haven't picked our venue out yet because it's in my FI's home town of Windsor and I have no clue what places are good there to have it! I originally wanted to have it outside under a tent but people in Windsor are super traditional and treated me like I was speaking a foreign language when I tried to inquire. Now I need to rely on FI for suggestions which explains why it hasn't happened yet!

I agree, the April Ladies planning threads will kick some serious butt.

How exciting Meggers, you have to let us know how it goes! How long are your extensions going to be?

Can't wait to see the pinwheels either, such a cute idea!

Laura, I'm glad to hear things are all set with the documents at your resort!  Now you can breathe a little better, huh?!

 

Brandy, I still havent received them.  I received an email on 2/25 (the second date they told me that they would ship) saying they were in the warehouse and would go out the following Monday (2/28).  Well, yesterday I decided I had waited long enough, and contacted them asking for notification that they had shipped and for a tracking number.  They responded saying that they hadn't shipped, there was a problem with the manufacturer and they didn't know when they would ship.  Oh, and because I was so not very nice (to say the least) in my last email, they gave me a 50% of code.  So, I just called them to tell them to cancel my order and to give me my money back because I would wait no more...  The lady was like, but they will ship on 4/10.  I told her that I don't think she quite understood....I wanted my money back.  So, I'm on the hunt for shoes again!  SO frustrated with the company though..

 

Meggers, it is a huge relief!  It was totally meant to be because it was their only date left!  I don't know how I could do it if it was in a place that I didn't know much about.  Good luck with planning that!  When are you guys planning on having it?

    • 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!!
