Well my FI and i are taking the weekend off of all wedding related stuff, and i kind of feel guilty about it. But I did get tons done last week. As for tipping the WC on all the reviews we have rec'd giving them 100 dollars or so can get you lots of little free stuff and extra attention that you didn't expect so thats our plan.

 

We decided we need a weekend together otherwise its going to all go to fast, as after our wedding when we fly back we pack up our house and move to Indonesia for three years!!!!!

NurseM, if tipping can get you some extra goodies, does that mean we should tip before the wedding?  I was planning on about $100 for my WC if everything went great at the wedding.

Wow $100 seems like alot to tip a WC.

 

Just my personal opinion tho, I guess it depends on home much you spend on your wedding......

 

I think its subjective stupid.gif

Hi ladies! We're getting married May 4, but we did our legal ceremony yesterday :D Last week we had our shower, and the bachelor/bachelorette parties were a few weeks ago. We don't have much left to do, my mom and I are putting together the survival kits for the OOT bags next week, I also have to pick up my dress next week (had the bustle added) and we need to finalize our wedding music. Other than that, just the little things left like pedi, hair cut, wax, etc. It's so nice to be nearly done! I'm really getting to the point where I just want to be married, on vacation, and done with the planning. I don't know how people do this for more than a year! lol

RE: Tipping....I also feel like $100 may be a little steep but it depends on how well she does.  I don't know how tipping can give you extra attention and free things since you don't tip until the end.  At least I wouldn't tip until the end because if it doesn't go well her tip will reflect that...now if everything is wonderful and perfect and she handles everything the way I wanted then yeah I can see giving her a $100.

 

My shower was yesterday and it was so much fun! My FMIL and BM are the ones who threw it for me and my FMIL seriously went above and beyond.  We didn't do traditional games or things like that but there was a slideshow of our e-pics mixed in with pictures of Tulum and our wedding site since a lot of our aunts and grandma won't be making it.  They really enjoyed seeing all that and they kept asking about my dress so I pulled out the pics from my last fitting so they all appreciated being able to see it.  My FMIL baked a 3-tiered cake and made homemade icing and coordinated the decorations with our colors and flowers it was too cute!

 

This week I need to order the stuff to put together out AHR invites and I'm working on shower thank you's today.

oh I brought this up in another thread...but is anyone else going to carry-on your real touch bouquets?  I want to carry mine on and I have my BM her's to carry on with her and she brought up a good point....the bouquets have straight pins in them for the ribbon so not sure how that will go over.  Do any of you have a similar problem?

Has anyone used shutterfly to print photo books before? I want to print my guest book and now I am concerned about the picture quality. I have always done this on my MAC, which has been great, but now it wants me to upgrade my OS and I just don't have the time and patience for it now.

We did our guest book on Mixbook and it turned out great.  I have also ordered a book from shutterfly before and the quality was just as great as mixbook.

    • 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.
