Bigger news: officially engaged 3 weeks ago. Good because I sent the invites to print, earlier that day. Yeah, I'm a wedding planner by trade and I little zealous but we knew when and where we were getting married so at least I clued him in on that stuff.

Congrats!! That is too funny and cute!

Well, I'm ahead of you in the dress department, but haven't sent my invites out yet. Mine will go out July 12.

If you don't find a dress, you could go without -- that could be fun too, haha! Make it a theme... think of the pictures, lol.

Hello Ladies. We're getting married February 18, 2011 at Catalonia Royal Bavaro in Punta Cana. I've already booked the airfare/accomodations. I've decided that I was going to wear a two piece white silk charmeuse sarong with scarf top with turquoise slip set, which I will make myself. Everything has already been decided. I'm glad I can relax for a while.

Hi All! Glad to see so many brides picking DR as their destination. We were engaged February 10th 2009 and were supposed to get married this June, but oops we found out we were expecting a baby girl and had her on Halloween lol. So we went for a destination wedding which will take place Thursday, February 10 (day we got engaged) at Bavaro Princess Suites and Casino. We sent out our save the dates in February, Sent out invites last Friday and already have 33 people booked. As for rates, we have an amazing travel agent and if interested you can PM me and Ill get back to you with his info. We are flying out of Pearson (Toronto) on a Sunday and returning the following Sunday. We all went with Platinum Service and Suites and Flight and Hotel with Platinum Service cost our guest 1599$ (1399 for regular suite). The more people you book the better deal you can offer your guest and the better deal you and your FI get as when all is said and done we technically only had to pay $150 to $600 for our trip with Elite Service :)

 

My dress is picked, bridesmaid dresses are picked Ive attached pic below, Groomsmen clothing is decided and we have most of our OOT bags completed as well as our wedding party gifts. Went to purchase my wedding cake topper today :) Ive also went and quoted flowers that I absolutely love as there is no sense in paying for flowers for 7 bridesmaid which they cannot bring back on the plane. We are going with the Beach Party Reception and my date, has now been confirmed with the hotel as well as time.

 

OOOOH I'm so excited...can't you tell LOLsmile36.gif

Hi Ladies! We're getting married February 7 at Dreams Punta Cana. I have the dress, picked out bridesmaid dresses and should be ordering them next week, invitations were sent out a couple months ago. I just got centerpieces and now we are working on welcome bags for our guests.

Yay! Finally settled on a group rate with Sunquest Vacations! I just booked me, FI, and my parents to start off our group. Sunquest also had a great special where they hold 30 seats for the group for 90 days, so that gives people time to get in their deposits. I am so excited!

Hello Fellow February 2011 Brides.

 

I am a Dreams Punta Cana bride and will be getting married February 17th, 2011. I have already sent of the invitations and gotten 3 yes responses and 1 no so that is pretty exciting. I have also already picked out and purchased the dress and am currently working on centre pieces actually my mom is working on the centre pieces for me. We are making menu lanterns to put in the centre of each table with flowers along the bottom.

I have also started working on the OTT bags I made a mock up of the bag and it looks pretty cool. My aunt is making the bags as a wedding present for me and another aunt is giving me money to buy all the stuff to go in the ott bags.

I haven't picked out a maid of honour dress yet but I think I might just let her wear whatever she likes. My FI and I are only having a maid of honour and best man.

Other then that I think that is all I have done so far.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
