We are looking for an 'adults only', 5 star, preferably all inclusive, with all the extras like room service, mini bar in room etc.

Thanks for the comment on the dress. Really the pic does it no justice what-so-ever!!!!

 

We originally wanted to get married at the Iberostar Grand, its stunning and very new, I think it only opened in March last year, so i also imagine the palce will be imaculate aswel, we have stayed in iberostars before in Dom Rep & Cuba, and absolutly loved them :-) The 2 reasons we didnt opt for this in the end were because it adults only and we have a baby coming to the wedding and originally when my sis may have been coming she has kiddies too..... Also we wanted to get married in a chain we'd never been to as much as we love the iberostar resorts they are kind of all the same so we wanted the wedding experience to be unique :-)

 

Let us know what you choose :-)

 

I personally would do the Grand if we ever go to Mexico again :-) x

OK ladies, Im starting to worry now.... I think its finally hit me this week, that i am actually getting married in 4 n half weeks, we leave 4 weeks today and now im panicing.....

 

1.) WC hasnt been intouch and they say 2-3 months before you go they do. I emailed her last Sun, still no reply.

2.) Make up, was going to do it myself, woke up dreaming of make up, had to phone my mum to have a wobble... SO im just going to get the resort to do it now... one less thing to think about ( i was worried the type of make up to buy, colour to buy as my face will be a different colour on wedding day, and scared id look no different and cant apply it propery and id panic which would get me hot which would cause my hair to frizz)

3.) We have NO music :-( I dont know where to start, EVERYTHING i like Stephen hates and vise versa AND we dont have "A SONG" like most people.

4.) What if Stephen hates the dress and he has something in his mind of how he wants me to kinda look and its nothing like it.

5.) Still got rsvp's for AHR outstanding, more need to reply than that have replied (if that makes sense)

6.) I havent managed to loose the weight i wanted

 

There is prob more which i will think of as soon as ive pressed submit no doubt, but im sure thats enough for now!!! Haha!!!!

 

Sorry I think i just needed to get it of my chest...

 

Thanks for being here girls, I HONESTLY DO NOT KNOW what i would have done with out EACH AND EVERYONE of you over all this process...

I wish i could have you all at my wedding, We have all been through lots together and would be nice to share it all with you.... At least you have the pix to look at :-)

 

xxxxxxxx

Thanks Sam, glad you got your rings your have to post pix when you collect them :o)

 

Nicy, OMG your having a wobbly day bless ya.. Listen we all have them. I feel your frustration. I haven't heard from my WC either. I know we have just over 7wks to go but i, like you thought in the last 2/3 months they would be in touch more. Do you have a phone number for them? Might cost a bit but worth it if you are panicing ??

 

Having your makeup done will be lovely :o) a little pamper session for the bride :o)

 

I'm SURE you are gonna look gorgeous on your wedding day. You look a knock out in your dress, Stephen will be dribbling at the end of the aisle :o)

 

I feel the same, havent lost any weight. Feel like a blob and have my final fitting tomorrow!!! AARRGGHH i have a swollen tummy and feel so uncomfortable. A bonus though is i haven't had back ache today :o) hopefully on the mend, just wish my stomach pains would go now!!

 

We still have ppl to RSVP it is SO annoying!!! and rude i think.........

 

Hun, please dont stress it will all work out and be beautiful. I for one can't wait to see your pix. Music is hard maybe you could compromise and have one you like and one FI likes? xx

    • 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
