HI, may i ask what resort you are getting married at?

 

We are at secrets maroma, riveria Maya Mexio...

 

Yup, i have been pretty laid back, but recently struggling with photographers...

 

they one i finally picked told me 100% down........does that sound right to anyone???

 

Nicyx, are you using an outside photographer off your resort??

 

BTW......great job on the weight loss, i have 15 pounds to go, but not till after xmas, but i am only 138 pounds so losing that is think is going to be difficult...

 

 

Sorry were getting married at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya :-)

 

We are using the onsite photog. Calypsofoto    

 

Here are their website www.calypsofoto,com

 

The weight loss is at a stop at the mo... like you i will be back on it after xmas :-) but thanks for the well done!!! x

 

 

OH (sorry for those who have seen this on other threads)

Mine is on the left... Gold

Stephens is on the right .... White Gold

 

We were going to go for both gold.... but Stephen prefers White Gold & because my E ring and Eternity ring are both gold, the White Gold just wouldnt go....

 

They are very simple bands, Simple because i have diamonds in both my rings and i tried on a diamond wedding ring but it just looked awful (i know a girl can never have enough diamonds... but.... Haha) and they are perfect for us :-)

 

I dont know if its odd us getting different colours but hey its what we want so...... :-)

 

Im so happy!! Another thing ticked of the list!!!

I had a little freak out moment last night. 

 

When we decided to have a destination wedding I expanded our guest list slightly, thinking not many people show up. Guess what? People love to take a vacation in Mexico!!! Even my family from Germany has decided to come. 29 confirmed guests and counting .... Deep breath, deep breath ....

Ha that is what happened with us after we first sent out invites.  Several people who we thought would not be coming are now coming.  They thought what a great way to take a family trip so our guest list is doubled what we originally thought eek.gif but more the merrier!!

I agree Danni. I am humbled that so many of my friends and family are taking such a long trip to be there for my big day. I just hope that everyone has a great time :)

Nicola, I love your rings! That is what traditional wedding bands look like in Sweden. I didn't want diamonds at all but ended up changing my mind when I found a very pretty vintage-style ring. I don't think it is weird to have different colors, we will have totally different looking rings as my FI want a simple, "square" ring.

 

We have about 20 people who have RSVPd but none that have booked so far. We were going to skip invites and just do STDs and the website but now I am considering sending out invites after the holidays to remind people that we are actually getting married (I don't have the bride gene so I hardly talk about it).

    • 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.
