Calling All Feb 2011 Brides

Recommended Posts

Hey girls! New February 2011 bride. No date set yet but we're thinking Feb 12. We have such a short window and I still have no idea where to have it at. I'm getting overwhelmed!! :/

 

Question though... how is the weather down there during that time of year? I'm assuming fabulous all the time but I've only ever been during May/June or October and it's HOT! :)

I think I am going to use the for the 3 brides maids. Depending on how they feel when I get them I might bulk them up a little with spiral branch thingys =) I might put them in my suitcase or have each brides maid responsible for her own.....Tho that sounds scary lol. My mom offered to take an extra suitcase as well.

Hi ladies!

 

It looks like most of you are still in your planning stages, and if I might, can I pass on a few vendors for you to consider? My daughter was married last May at the Fairmont Mayakoba, everything went beautifully and these vendors and suppliers did a great job for us:

 

Invitations: Ajalon Printing (Santa Rosa, CA) made letterpress affordable. Trish Jackson was a delight to work with.

 

Calligraphy by Jennifer: She does an amazing number of fonts in a bold style that fills up your envelope space. Beautiful work. We had one small glitch, but I'm over it...

 

Ceremony (Ours was non-denominational.): Kiko Flores. Our guests thought he had known the couple for years!

 

Flowers: Vanessa Jaimes. Elegant and understated, and the oceanfront wedding site was stunning.

 

String Trio: Big Bang Entertainment. Perfect touch and they timed things perfectly.

 

Napkins, stir sticks, etc: Great service and they replicated the couple's monogram without custom are work.

 

 

And a plug for the Fairmont: The event management and staff here are outstanding. They are easy to work with, professional and carried out the details to perfection. I don't think I've stayed anywhere where management and staff were as genuine in their desire to make us and our guests happy.

 

Let me know if I can share email addresses and websites.

 

Here's a suggestion for your table numbers: Use Mexican house number tiles and lean them against your vases. It's a Martha Stewart thing...

 

And use Wedding Mapper for your guest management. Access is by user name and password, so family members can track RSVP's from wherever they are. Acceptances are automatically dropped onto the seating chart by parties, parties can be seated in one step, and family members can seat their guests from their homes. We shared this access with the event's planners, and they were able to set up the room as we were planning. No last minute escort card adjustments!

Is anyone concerned that it may be cold at night? We area going inside to a ballroom at 9:30 but I wonder if it gets cold before then.

You could search a weather website to see what the average temps are like....I'm not too worried about it being really chilly, but most people will come prepared with a shawl or cover-up I'm sure!

I bought a little white jacket / shawl thing to wear with my dress if needed. I saw this on etsy that I love love love, but decided it was to expensive. I have a short dress so it fits nicely.

Was close to getting it. Instead I found a little cotten jacket, with short sleeves at the Gap I am going to pin flowers to. Similar to how its done in the picture.

Hey ladies! I'm super excited like the rest of you but now I don't really have anything to do until we know the number of people coming then we will decide our dinner etc. I am getting married on a budget and so far I have been able to pull it off :)

 

I do recommend Ivan Luckie Photography- He is easy to work with and has lots of good reviews on this website.

 

Congrats all

I looked it up as I wanted to post it on my website for my guests so they know what to bring.

It's 83 during the day and 68 at night

    • 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.
