Michelle I get my bouquet included and grooms flower but have to pay extra for hair, private reception, bridesmaid flowers etc but know I've got the extra to spend it will help. :-)

I'd go and try the dress on every week if I could!!!

Ah, travel agents have decided that it's their mistake after all, and that no-one has to pay any extra..... think FI may have "helped" them come to that decision, by his sublte yet persuasive "you fucked it up, you sort it out"!!!!

I went and paid my dress off yesterday and tried it on once more just to check it's still the one, and yep felt a million dollars in it. :-)

 

Absolutly fantastic news :-) Thats brilliant, its not like you were only talking about a couple of quid!!!! Wonderful x

How exciting you paid it off!!! Yipee x

That's what I was thinking, I watched it with my son yesterday and even he was like 'what is she on' she was just obsessed with it being all her way. I thought he done a great job! Love that program! Do any of you watch 'wedding house'? Mario & Lisa (Botox queen) she looked awful!

Hi Ladies.

 

Thats a great saving Herbie76 - I did watch some of the Wedding House and happened to see Lisa and Mario on it - she looked hideous!!

 

Our wedding package includes my bouquet and a buttonhole for the groom - which is another thing off the list.

 

Got the prices for a private reception today and it works out about £40 pp so we are going to go with this they dress up the beach bar and you have a BBQ on the beach as well - its from 6pm to 11pm and they create a dance floor for you and a docking station for the ipod so we are quite pleased - we can have our own private family disco - lol!  Then hit the town afters!

 

Nicy - so exciting for you I bet you cant wait - I'm not trying my dress on again until 4th Dec which is FIs stag do - so me and one of my BM are going to go and try our dresses on at my mums again - hers better fit I'm telling you as she needed to lose nearly 2 stone to get into the dress - if she doesnt squeeze into it I will blow my top - lol!!!

Oh got my clutch bag today - its ivory and pleated with diamontes on the top.  The photo doesnt really do it justice.  It will go with my dress really well as that it pleated as well - FI saw it and said ' so you are definately wearing white then' - as he had this thing that he wanted me to wear white but as im not so conventional I think he was threating I would be wearing black or something :-))

    • 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.
