Hi Lea :)

 

We are getting married in Dominican Republic, but decided to do symbolic ceremony there :D...well long story short, we have been very against such a things with my H2B at first...but when we looked at reality of things (£ lol) :D it seemed like we could use this extra over £1000 for our second honey moon later on in a year!!! :)))

We are going to get legally married in UK about two weeks before we go - everything very secret secret!!! :)) with our two friends being witnesses cos they cant make it to DR and then still count our REAL wedding day the one we will have 6th of March in DR!!! :)) and after we will be back about May-June we are thinking to have church blessing, cos our families are quite religious and thought it will be nice for everyone to attend who couldn't make it to DR :)) ...so hopefully it will all work out just well :D

 

Michelle, GOD you are one creative lady!!!! I tell you, as i am least creative person ever, I look at things you do and just hope that maybe somewhere along this journey of wedding planning I will get some of what you have too LOL :D

Btw your pink shoes look beautiful, I have quite few Ted Baker shoes actually and they are all crazy comfy, so you should go with them at least you will be able to relax and enjoy yourself on your big day,...not to have worry about soar feet :(((..

I feel the same as Nicy but i totally get why ppl do it. We thought about having a blessing back in the UK so my dad could walk me down the aisle but i think its to much now this yr. Maybe for our 1st wedding anniversary.... ark at me we're not even married yet and i'm arranging something else ha ha....

 

Lol i do love a bit of DIY... when i'm in the mood that is..

 

Girls i was thinking while i'm in wedding mode... i've got fans for the ladys for the ceremony but i said to FI, you better make sure you have a hanky in your pocket to wipe the sweat as wont look to nice in pix.. hee hee. so was thinking about getting the men hankercheif's with their names on to go on chairs along side the fans....?? What do you think? Good idea or bad? Is it a bit grandad? ha ha will they appreciate having something to wipe their sweaty brow with?

haven't been on here for a couple of days & i had a few pages to catch up on!

michelle both your shoes are gorgeous but i especially love the bridal ones! wish i could wear high shoes like that!!!

got a phone call today to say my dress is in woohooooo i am going for my fitting next saturday :)

also i got weighed for the first time in 3 weeks and i've lost another 4 pound so thats 9.5 in total so I'm really pleased. This is the lowest I have ever weighed (since i was a child!!)

 

can i just ask are any of you getting vaccinations for mexico?

and are you all just taking your birth certificates as documentation? i've been told thats all i need but it doesnt seem much! x



Omg how exciting!!! My fitting is 21st and i cant wait. I cant wait to see it all together. Shoes, jewellery, tiara etc...

 

Well done on the weight loss :o)

 

We are having jabs - they are booked in for 8th March, not sure which ones we need as nurse has only put the date our appointment is on the letter.

 

At our hotel we only need passports and visa cards. We dont need our birth certs, i've checked this with our TA aswell and she said we dont either. At our hotel you only need to take them and have them legalised if you have been married before.....

 

So just passports and tourist cards for us :o)


Wau Michelle that's all you need to get married in Mexico?????!!!!.....to be honest we have been considering Mexico at first and if i would have known that all you need is this we would have probably chosen it too!!!

In Dominican republic you need your original birth certificate , together with document confirming that you are still single and decree nici if you have been divorced - all of which has to be translated and legalized by DR consulate...:/

...that's why we decided to make it symbolic ceremony there, cos we know better places to spend such amount of money on lol :D and i am sure it will still be special for us ;)))

 

Lyndsey yay your dress is in congrats and if you will be able to get some pictures so we all can see :))) and congrats on weight loss too!!!! ...i need to get my ass back to the gym too...havent been working out since got that horrible flu, so almost 3 weeks now lol :D

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
