    Janet,

     

    I love your FI outfit it looks great and the colours are awesome! I will make sure to go to Le Chateau thanks for the good advice and poting the pics! I never thougt of the groomsmen wearing shorts but I like that too! and I think the guys would love it!

     

    I am still not to sure what I am going to do for flowers but I would love to see a picture of yours when they come in if you don't mind! I will check out angels accents. Thanks for all the great ideas!!!

    FI and I just completed his whole outfit at Le Chateau...they have really nice linen pants and they were the only place that actually had our exact colors for shirt and ties. every where else was more along the lines of baby blue and i really wanted the blue to be right. And it helped that the old navy in the mall had flip flops on sale for $1.00 yup you read that right one dollar LOL

     

    I took a quick pic....not the best pic but will give you an idea anyway :)

    Fi will wear that with white flip flops :) he looks great in it, i just need to have the pants hemmed a bit and we will be all set. The pants, shirt, tie, and shoes came to under $200.00

     

    Our groomsmen are wearing these....

    .

    Except they are wearing white shirts and white flip flops :) ....we bought the shorts from Sears on sale for $39.00 and flip flops from old navy at the dollar sale and we just need to buy the shirts :)

     

    I'm not making my own bouquets. I actually hired a company called angels accents (she is FANTASTIC) and she will be designing and making all of my flowers. I decided to go the "soft touch" route. The flowers look so real and i get to keep them. The resort wanted a fortune for the flowers so i researched other options and decided to go this way. I dont have pics or anything yet as i havent recieved my design yet. I will keep you posted when i do. Angel will be doing my bouquet, MOH bouquet, bridesmaid bouquets x 2, groom and groomsmen bouts, best man is actually fi's sister so we are getting her a wrist corsage, moms wrist corsage, MIL wrist corsage, and bouts for both dads, she is also doing cake table decoration, sending me extra petals for the aisle :) She has it all nicely packed so they wont get damaged through travel, and send paperwork to state they are fake so there are no issues at the airport :) I dont even know if i want bouts for the groomsmen yet so i will have FI try it when they arrive and will decide :)

                  Hi Ladies!

                  My name is Sabrina, I'm from Toronto and I'm getting married at Dreams La Romana in the DR on December 17, 2011.  I basically have done zero except for getting my dress and accessories....the invites went out (they were incredibly informal due to my parent's being a bit ridiculous..) but whatever.  So now I'm just gathering some ideas for decor and anything else I come across.  This website is amazing!  I've gotten so much valuable info!  Happy planning!

                    Hi Sabrina! 

                     

                    Welcome!!! Your wedding is just around the corner, how exciting!!! What did you do for invites?  We sent ours out last week.  They were a lot of work but I was happy with the end product and am pleased the response we are getting.  I am getting married in the DR as well at Majestic Colonial.  I found this site back when we first got engaged (almost a year ago) but found it overwhelming and intimidating.  I wish I would have gotten involved earlier because it has been a GREAT tool for me!

                     

                    I look forward to hearing about your planning process and seeing pictures!!!

                     

                    All the best
