The Engagement

Chris and I decided to take a weekend trip to Chicago- I had a suspicion that something was up because he didnâ€t let me plan any part of our trip. We went to a Cubs game during the day, and he had secretly made reservations at the Signature Room in the John Hancock building for dinner. It was so romantic, looking out onto the city and the lake from the 92nd floor. We had finished our dinner and I could tell he was nervous… but one thing lead to another and the next thing I knew he was on one knee at the side of the table telling me how much he loves me and wants to spend the rest of his life with me. Of course I cried…. I found out later that he had asked my brother for permission before he popped the question. So thatâ€s that, and hereâ€s the ring.



The Dress

I had 3 different opportunities to try on dresses- all 3 times, my mom canceled on me… So dress shopping wasnâ€t exactly how I had imagined it. Itâ€s a good thing I have a wonderful aunt and a great best friend to help me find my perfect dress. The first time I went to try on dresses, I was shopping for a winter wedding dress. And I had found it. The store wouldnâ€t allow any pictures to be taken. Boo. Anyway, itâ€s neither here nor there… since about a month later, Chris and I were talking about our wedding and we made a compromise of sorts. We agreed to have a destination wedding, but we would move the date up 6 months… so now we are going to try for a family sooner The first dress is one that I really wanted… and the second is one that I found at Davidâ€s Bridal for half the price of the first. Never did I ever imagine that I would go for a lace wedding gown, but I guess that happens quite a bit.

    • 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
