I also just ordered our invitations from pockets and things so they should be here soon ready to be put together and sent off. We also ordered FI's wedding band from etsy. We also finally found wedding bands to go with my ring. I'll have pics of everything for you soon. Oh and how did I forget I just booked my boudoir session for October 12! Is anyone else doing a boudoir? Iâ€m really excited.

Morgan,

 

I have been cruising this website for 6 months, trying to come up with things to make our wedding 'unique', and thankfully I found some great ideas that I 'borrowed' from other brides. I knew I wanted pocketfold invites, so I ordered all of the card stock, already cut, with the silver matte including on the invite. I came up with some very simple wording for the invites, I will find it and post it later. I used the talents of my future father in law to do the printing, since he worked for Hewlett Packard, it was perfect! Then I just put a little shell stamp on the RSVP I bought at Michaels to spruce it all up. I found the monogram on cardsandpockets.com, they actually let you design your own!! it was so easy! and I think I got 100 for 20 dollars, but I just wished it was a bit more tropical, but I ordered it in turquoise to match the invites and it seems ok. I also ordered those bands to go around them, but I didnt know how to fasten them (Im a nurse, not a graphic designer!) so I made them so you can slide them off, and stuck everything together with doublesided tape I bought at staples. I spent around $280 for 65 invites, which would have cost me at least $5-$6/invite if  I had them ordered.

 

Your's look great! I like the design on them! I was able to include a menu on my RSVP after emailing the coordinator at the resort to confirm our restaurant. I included someplace in the travel card "Please remember that a passport is required for travelling to Jamaica" just in case anyone didn't realize it!

I am having the hardest time with finding paper for my programs/ menus!! Ugh!! I need a bright blue metallic and the closest thing I have found yet is Lagoon, which I luckily ordered samples of and it's way too green. I've tried all the paper sites and am so frustrated! 

 

I also had really good correspondence going with some florists, but as soon as I asked for more specific quotes, silence ensued. I'm starting to feel the pressure to really get moving on things. How about you ladies??

Kimberli,

I've been dealing with Jodi from Tai Flora since June. So far, I have a bridal bouquet and bridesmaids organized, and I just emailed her yesterday about the centerpieces and boutonnieres. I asked about wrist corsages for our moms, and Im still waiting to hear back. It takes about a week to get a response, so it's a good think that I've started early on planning the decor!

 I don't want to have to bring alot of stuff down there. I'm bringing paper lanterns to hang from the ceilings, and table runners. I don't think there is much else. I'm still debating on the table favours, I don't know what to do, or if we should even bother with them

Its going to be a bussy weekend for me, i'm printing and assembling my invitations. I also just ordered my lugage tags from amazon, my design your own travel mugs from oriental trading, and my hair flower from etsy! yay it feels like im finally getting somie planning done.

 

Does anyone know if you can get a titanium ring resized? my FI ordered his own ring and failed to tell me that he DID NOT get his ring finger sized. He told me, and i quote, "I just guessed that i would be a 9.75 it sounded like a good size." man is he driving me nuts!

I am sorry to say that, but you can't resize titanium rings. Try talking to jeweller and convince them to reorder it.Other than that, there is not much choice.

Good luck!!

We just got our engagement photoshoot today and I am getting boudoir shoot in week. I can't wait, so excited. I am so glad I met my photographer, she is great and I hope it would not be so creepy to boudoir shoot. :D

Btw, where in Ontario are you?

    • 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.
