May 2011 Brides!

Recommended Posts

Yes she is, we currently have it scheduled for Nov. 8 right now, but if it pours then we'll reschedule. We were originally thinking Feb next year, but I thought it would be nice to take e-photos around the 1 year mark for our engagement so hopefully it will work out. I'm always on her blog too! She's fantastic, can't wait!

 

We're also doing our legal here before going. Thing with us is, at first we figure we would do our legal the same day as our reception in town, but as the days past, I'm worried it would take away from our Mexico wedding. Because we can't "escape" from anyone the reception day....our whole wedding party will have to come with us to the legal ceremony - and they're coming with us to Mexico....so it won't be a secret then (like it is now)... 

I had to do a lot of damage control in the early days of intending to have this "secret" legal ceremony.

 

I'm so tempted to get it all done here first without telling anyone so we don't have to fuss on the reception day about it, but two witnesses are needed. Lol, maybe we can work something out together  wink.gif

Here is the marriage commission I mentioned last time, Ann Moore's email annmoore@telus.net  she lives at Kits Pt.

I cannot believe it is already October!! Leslie is flying to Mexico for our wedding on the 8th... so the day after your at home reception!! I'm obsessed with her blog.. i swear her photography gets better and better with every wedding she shoots!


 


I'll look into PR as well!  I think Blaine would probably be about the same driving distance for me and would give me a good excuse to do some shopping!!

The stuff I want to order online is chair sashes, lanterns, tulle... all the decoration type things! However, if these $5 mail boxes actually work out I could def see myself using it for A LOT of other things as well!!

 

 

Quick question for you ladies... I remember us talking about a minister who will do legal ceremonies in her backyard. Could you give me her contact. We've decided to get married legally at home first and do the symbolic ceremony in Mexico. To get legally married in Canada do we need witnesses?.... I want to keep it as secret as possible!

Sorry, I'm new to this and have a ton of questions.  Is anyone traveling with young children?  Our two year old daughter will be coming with us.  From what I've been reading, it doesn't look like Moon Palace has a babysitting service.  I don't think we will be able to afford to pay for our babysitter to come for the week, but also don't want to burden our family and friends who are coming with looking after her while we are preparing for the wedding.  Is anyone else having similar concerns or have any ideas for me?

Our four year old daughter (five by the time of the wedding) will be traveling with us as well and some of our guests are bringing their children.  I picked Dreams La Romana as our resort because they have a kids club and a teens club where the children can go during the day and have kid fun while the adults play and have adult fun.  I would suggest looking into something like that at your resort or simply asking some of the guests to spend a few hours with her while you're handling your wedding business.

Check out Azul Sensatori as well! It's half adults only and half family friendly. It's great resort for small chilfdren all the way to teens. I have a bunch of kids from 1 year - 18 years old coming and this resort was perfect

Thanks for the suggestions.  My brother and most of my guest are arriving a few days after us.  I'm considering leaving her with my brother and having him bring her to Mexico  That will give us a chance to get everything finalized and have some alone time.  I purposely looked for resorts with kids clubs and activities because some of my guest are bringing children as well.  Unfortunately, I did not look into the age restrictions.  My daugther will be just shy of two and the only child too young for the kids club.  Moon Palace does not have a babysitting service.    I'm sure we'll find a solution and make it work.

We're doing the same thing with our daughter.  We're arriving on Wednesday and my parents aren't coming in until Friday, so she'll come with them and stay with them as well and then we'll all leave on Monday.

    • 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.
