char79uk  - Glad to hear your dad is on the mend!!

 

I picked dreams because I loved the style of the hotel modern, fresh and new! I also didnt want a hotel in cancun because the hotels there have 0 beach and high rise hotels in your pics (which personally I don't like) I also didnt want any further than around 30 minutes from cancun as I want to go there to visit. The cost was middle of the road. Also one of my bridesmaids is 14 so I also needed a hotel which would allow kids. Everytime I see pictures of Dreams Riviera I love it more and more!

 

Only downside for you (since you mention entertainment)  I've seen on trip advisor people saying there isnt much evening entertainment - which I would have liked more but I guess its what you make it xx

My wedding package includes 2 corsages which I believe are flower things that you tie on your wrist which I planned to use for my mum and one for Garys mum. My question is this, do the colour of these flowers match the brides/bridesmaids?

 

If so I dont know that they will look right -  my mums dress is purple, Garys mum is blue and my colour scheme is orange and pink?! lol

 

Does anyone know what the norm is for these?

 

thanks x

I never knew what a corsage was before you said - lol!  I have heard the expression before tho.

 

I have been to a couple of weddings in the last month and all female members of the wedding party had one and thinking back on both occassions the flowers and band matched the wedding colours; so yes they were the same as the BM dresses x

Oh that was handy. I dont think they had them in my pound store. I'll have to go and have another look. I only need 8 and the ones online have minimum orders of like 24!!

 

I will keep my eyes peeled!

Lol yeh i'd say they'd be the same as the bridesmaids/brides colour! If they are wearing purple and blue i'm sure pink will work fine with it :o)

Hi Ladies, Not been on for a few days and missed a good few pages so catch up time i think lol

 

Josie....I love the cards and first aid kits for your OOT bags your so creative , they are fab :)

 

Charmaine....I am really pleased that your dad is getting better and is now off the machines thats great news.

 

Lynsey....Congratulations on the confirmation of your wedding date, its such a great feeling isn't it?now that you know what day you will both say 'i do'

 

Roo....You look amazing in your dress and the picture of you and your boys is lovely, sounds like you had an amazing time. It's ashame your friend acted the way she did while you were away her behaviour sounds very selfish.

 

I am now on the hunt for waistcoats in ivory and turquoise but don't know where to start i have had a look on a few sites but no where seems to have what i am looking for :( do you ladies know of any sites?

 

My sister who is going to give me away has decided she will where the same as the bridesmaids but her dress will be a long style with a more floaty type material so i don't have to keep worrying about that to much now.

 

I have now got my tickets for the wedding show at the NEC in Birmingham, are any of you ladies going to the show? I am so excited

I am looking for some inspiration and was hoping you lovely ladies might be able to help :)

 

I have decided to put together a bridesmaids survival kit for my 3 adult bridesmaids and with it will be a poem that lists everything that is inside i have done

most of it but need a couple more verses, one for pashminas and one for sandals but i am now stuck and struggling to get any further here is what i have so far...

 

This bridesmaid survial kit was made just to say

We're thrilled your beside us on our wedding day

I hope that no tears should fall from your eye

but here is a tissue if you should cry.

Chapstcik and lipgloss to care for your smile

if a nail should break, you'll be set with a file!

Hairspray to keep your hair in place

A mirror to check out your beautiful face.

 

I need a verse for pashmina and sandals as i have these to put into the bag but carnt think what to write in 1 line so i can finish the rhyme, i wanted to tie in the sandals with dancing in some way

 

Would much appreciate any ideas you ladies could throw my way.

 

Vicki xx

    • 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.
