We picked 5/26 just because it worked. I would have liked 2/15 because it would be our 5 yr anniversary but it was too soon we thought for people to fork over the money and travel. Then I would have liked 3/16 because that's when we got engaged but it's about the spring time time and I didn't want that. So we thought summer. We thought the first week in june because maybe not as hot yet and the start of the cheaper rates. But schedules conflicted and we set on 5/26!!!!

Wow!! Who thought a date would be so hard!! :)

I picked other. It was mainly because we like to start our winter travels in November, also the resorts seem to be less crowded. The resort actually had quite a few days available to have the ceremony so the 15th just seemed the easiest to remember!

We picked November 2008 for a bunch of reasons.

 

1. wanted a long engagement/lots of time to plan (& loose weight!)

2. more affordable for guests

3. not too close to any holidays

4. weather in mexico during that time

We picked May 10, 2008 becuase it was the only month (and weekend) that didn't seem to have another wedding or graduation or other. Plus it is Mother's Day weekend (May 10th in Mexico and May 11th in the US) and we wanted to have a special brunch on Sunday in our mothers' honor. Also, it is not too close to the Christmas and New Year's holidays. But it did take us a while to decide on that date!!

Our wedding date is actually our 10 year anniversary. We were set up on a blind date on April 6th, 1998 and we're getting married on April 6th, 2008.

We picked 6/14/08 because it will be our 7th anniversary and it happens to fall on a saturday and my FI and I will be done with school and teaching by then.

At first we picked 07-28-07 because we got tired of everyone nagging and bothering us about wedding LOL.

Then I realized the week of the wedding that 07-28 is our date anniversary....lol...I guess I'm going to be the one forgetting the anniversary date. lol

We chose our date (Memorial Weekend, '09) because it falls on a Holiday weekend and that way people will only have to take off a day or two from work/school. The year we chose because A) We didn't want to take away from Martin's older brother's wedding (March of '0cool.gif and B) We'll be completely finished with school by then

    • 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.
