We've got our AHR this weekend I'm looking forward to it get to wear my dress again!! :D We are having it at Lords Golf & Country Club in Essex, we have 230 people coming so it should be a great night. I've brought fish bowls (from asda reduced to £3 bargain) for my centrepieces that I'm putiing pink waterbeads in then filling with water and putting a pink gerbera floating on top. I have pink and black scatter crystals for the tables. Post box all done, just need to get ribbon for my cake knife. Still trying to decide if should do a sweet stand or not, just all more money! So just got to pick my dress up from being mended and hope that our rings return in time. We had to send them back as after a week they were scratched really badly. Hope all you ladies are doing okay with your planning. God I miss that feel really lost since I've been back from Mexico.

Herbie, You are sounding very organised and ready for your AHR.

 

Was just wondering what the mess up with your room was? And how easy was it sorting it out?

Hi to all the newbies and welcome to BDW this site will be a god send to you believe me.

 

Kerry, it wasn't easy to get upgraded. Our room (family suite) was meant to have two proper beds put in it but instead it had a queen sized bed and a sofa bed, it took alot of moaning to the reps. Then the next day they came up to jay and said they would move us on  the 4th day to the honeymoon suite. It was well worth the moaning though as the view was amazing from the honeymoon suite.

 

Well ive been DIYing again, went out yesterday to get a guest book but couldn't find one i liked so i havce made one. what do you think?

Welcome to all the newbies.We are almost about to celebrate our first anniversary but before that we move tomorrow AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

I loved every moment of our planning i loved all the exras we bought and yes they did add to the weight in the luggage but i couldnt of not done everything.Has anyone ordered tears of joy from Chelymo they were one of my most used items along with the pashminas paper parasols jelly  bean cones t- shirts and props for photos.hehehe

I dont know what to get Paul for our first anniversary we are movng tomoz and the sale of ouR purchase has not gone through yet sooo we are moving into the INLAWS spare room with the boys spread around the county.We were very lucky to sell our home within the three weeks to a couple in rented so rather than risk loosing the sale were homeless as of tomoz.I cant wait no mortgage for a while.

Any ideas on an anniversary gift im working on our anniversary its the Faversham hop festival and ill be working 15 hrs that day.I would like to go away for the night but thats not going to happen.

Anyway its been a while since ive been on here i hope my weddi8ing piccies are an inspiration to some of you.

We all made the right decision to be married in a sunny relaxed climate xxx

    • 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.
