November 2011 Brides (or Grooms)

Recommended Posts

Carrie and Sarah -

 

Both of your photos are fantastic! 

 

Sarah - You are certainly still rocking that dress and the beach/cliff backdrop was gorgeous.

 

Carrie - Your review was great and how lucky that it rained for a bit so you ended up getting the reception location that you actually wanted.  And I LOVE that picture of the two of you walking back down the aisle with the sunlight and the colors - awesome. 

 

I hope everyone gets all of the photos they want for you AHR.  I had mine in time to put them into a slideshow (with all of the standard pics of baby through embarassing teenage pics) and we got so many compliments.  You will hear over and over that night how beautiful it looked and how much people wish they were there, etc.  Worst case, if the pics aren't in right before your AHR, email the photog and see if they will email you some of the unedited photos.  Unedited would definitely be better than nothing!

So how are all of the November brides holding up?

 

My husband decided to test out the whole "in sickness and in health" thing very early in our marriage.  Today is my first day back at work after a weekend trip to the ER resulted in an emergency appendectomy for my husband.  All I can say is thank goodness 1) that this didn't happen a month ago when we were in Mexico and 2) for good health insurance (though there will still be a very hefty out of pocket charge).

 

I hope everyone is doing well and are happily preparing for your first holiday season as a married couple. 

 

BTW - we couldn't resist using a wedding picture for the front of our Christmas cards:

Ouch. I hope your hubby is doing well after the trip to the ER! Indeed, thank goodness it didn't happen last month! That's a great Christmas card! Beautiful. 

 

We just celebrated our 3 year anniversary, which also was our one-month wedding anniversary. cheesy.gif Things are going really well and we are looking forward to the holidays with our families and friends. We are also still waiting on all of our pro-pics and video from the wedding.....Hopefully we'll get it soon because the photographer said he was mailing them soon. Our parents are more anxiously awaiting them than we are I think. Ha ha.

 

Can you believe how time flies?!? Happy one-month anniversary to all the November brides who got married on the 14th and prior! And happy almost one-month to those who got married after the 14th! cheers.gif Hope your holidays are joyful and blessed!

Sorry to hear about the ER incident. Hope he is feeling better.  Beautiful Christmas card!!!

I would love to do that but I really want to use a professional pic and I won't have those in time.  Still thinking about it.

 

So I did something pretty dumb and wanted to share with you ladies for a laugh.

D and I were trying to be efficient when it came to the AHR and invites.  We didn't have our accurate guests lists yet so we figured 150 guests allowed on the yacht - lets order 200 invites to be safe.  When we got them all we went and bought 200 stamps and 200 postcards stamps for the RSVP cards.  Then we stuck them on every envelope and every postcard.  We felt so good that we got that done and out of the way.  Then we actually took at look at our guest list and finished up getting addresses.  When everything was done and the labels were ready to be printed I did a count of how many we needed....95.  Yup just 95 invites are needed and I have 200 invites, 200 stamped envelopes and 200 stamped postcards.  We did that a$$ backwards wouldn't you say??  LMAO!!  What a waste of money....so stupid!!  Oh well.

 

We went to see the yacht last night that we are having our reception on.  Its so pretty and is decorated for Xmas right now.  I got some great ideas for centerpieces.  :)  It made me a little bit more excited about having to do this all over again.  We are having an all out formal wedding reception and we will be watching the ceremony video so its pretty much the whole thing repeated.  Good Times!!

Wishing all my fellow November brides a very merry Christmas. Hope you and your new hubby have a wonderful holiday!

All the best for 2012 and hope we can continue to check in and out on here for updates.

Still waiting on pro-pics in January and will post a few here when I eventually get them.

Also have to re-do my planning thread that I had been updating for months and months ...... my hard drive crashed and died on me a few weeks ago, total disaster. Will post once I get it done AGAIN!

 

Happy first Christmas to all the new Mr & Mrs!!

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
