Lists, Lists and More Lists

Recommended Posts

I don't think I've ever created more lists in my life.


I have a Shopping list for clothing, reception, ceremony and gifts.

Then I have a OOT folder (not bag) list.

I have a honeymoon destination list.

I have a budget list (how I make my installment payments)

I have a DIY list.

The pre-travel brochure info list.

A vendor list (when I find something I like, I write it down for purchase later)

A to-do list

Can't forget the Guest List!


This is how I try to stay organized but yet I am still going crazy lol.

Am I the only one? Am I missing anything?

I have a "I'm The Bride" bag that I picked up at Michael's. In it is my wedding planner, an accordion type file folder, and all kinds of half-started/completed projects. The bag goes with me anytime there's anything remotely wedding-y going on, so that I always have my lists, my projects (in case I see something that can complete them, etc)... and so on. I feel like my wedding planning has taken over my free time... so I'm right there with you!


You MAY want to add a 'to-pack' list. I have one, and I've been at Walmart before and seen something that was an AH HA! I need to pack THAT! moment. Just a thought!

I've got all those list PLUS:

- a separate playlist of music for each event (cocktail hour, reception,...)

- list for guests' accommodations (arrivals, departures,...) on a spreadsheet


I've been keeping everything on an 8gb jump drive (that's backed-up on my computer, of course) AND printing off website pages of vendors/items that I keep in a notebook. Soon I will have to make a list of what I'm eliminating because I don't have a limitless budget! sad.gif

Ha ha, I love it because I have lists on my computer, in my purse in case I see deals when I'm shopping, and in my wedding planning book. Not counting numerous spreadsheets for various bugets. From looking at these posts I've realized there are more to come such as the confirmed guest list, song lists, etc.


Who ever said a destination wedding is easy?

    • 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.
