Engaged 3/13/2010

Recommended Posts

My fiance (now.. hehe) and I have been dating for 4 years. Everysingle one of our friends got engaged, and most of them married.. before we were engaged. This did bother me since we were dating the longest... but oh well. save the best for last! haha

A few years ago we planned on going to Jamaica and the plans fell through because of an illness in the family. We ended up just putting it on hold til the timing was a little better

In Feb of this year we decided to go! Booked the trip and took off on March 12 2010! it was the BEST vacation of my life!

The day after we got there (march 13th:)) We spent most of the morning laying on the beach and splashing around in the ocean!

Michael (my fiance) went up to the hotel room a few times to get more sunscreen and drinks. When we decided to go get some lunch we headed up to the room to get showered and dressed.

I opened the door and didnt notice the "will you marry me" written in flower petals on the bed! haha I just kept talking and talking and i noticed he wass acting kind of strange so i asked him what was wrong and turned around at the same time! I saw the petals and started freaking out! it was the BEST feeling in the world! I cried, laughed, smiled, and screamed all at the same time!! I forgot to say yes. The poor guy was on his knee for what seemed like an hour before i managed to say YES! the ring is beautiful and i was totally shocked! I didnt think it was coming since we spent so much on the vacation, just bought a house, and a new car... Plus i check his account to balance check books lol! I am very excited to say the least to take the next step in our long life together!

Jessica, congratulations! I feel like we were kind of in the same boat. Dated for a long time and everyone else met someone and got engaged during that time. But I really think it was worth the wait! You have a great engagement story! I love that you didn't notice at first. He obviously put a lot of effort into that.

 

Welcome to the forum and have fun planning!

    • 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.
