I'm a newbie on the site. Can you believe I still haven't figured out how to upload a profile pic? Sad story....

So far so good- still completely upset that I can not bring the photographer and videoagrapher on site!  We will go with Tropical Imaging off site and take whatever video Beaches  comes up with:(  Other than that- it is what it is and it will be an amazing time:)  It's a private ceremony with just my 11 year old and fiance... the formal reception will be back in Colorado this summer, hence why the video is EXTREMELY important to show on a big screen before the dinner.  I am not finicky about anything else- flowers, hair, make up whatever- just the video and pictures! I am wearing flip flops (very classy, fun ones)- with my beautiful dress and having sheneque do my hair and make up.  My guys have awesome custom linen suits and matching embroidered white linen shirts- it's just going to be great.  I ALWAYS wanted a private ceremony and huge formal bash after:)  For me it's personal and meaningful- and "savvy"  SO ticked about the outside vendor rule though- just have to get over it darn it!  Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season:)  Waiting to hear about the privacy of the honeymoon one bedroom suite as well- can't have an awkward moment with my 11 year old!  LOL! Just Kidding- gross.  :)

Peacefully,

Kimberly

Hey Girls, yes only 43 days until we leave...not that Im counting or anything msnwink.gif

 

We just ran into a little bit of an issue this week with Monica & Amoy from the wedding dept in Miami regarding the documents that I had forwarded to her. They were all stamped with a notary seal and aside from the fact that I paid $45 to send them from Canada I was less then impressed when I received a call yesterday advising that not all the documents were there as required.

I stood my ground with her cause Jason and I are not being married on the resort we are being married in a church on Providenciales.

 

Just ensure girls so that you aren't facing extra fees that you are sending what they are requiring!!!

 

The planning is slowly coming along........

Kimberly, yeah I think its total bs about the outside vendors as well, I mean I can see if they would want to charge you some sort of fee, or make you pay the day pass, but to not give you the option at all just plain stinks! Why dont they realize this day is very important to us and if we want a specific vendor we should be able to use them!!!

Hi Everyone!!  I would have LOVED to bring in Tropical Imaging also!! I hate that its our wedding day and can't have the pictures we want crybaby2.gif! I have heard a few people say they are using "Sheneque" for their hair and make up? Do you have details on her? Where she is located? Pictures of what she does and possibly how much? Also, anyone using veils? I heard its sooo windy there but the pictures I have seen Tropical do with the veil included are amazing.

It is windy.  I didn't use a veil but have short curly hair.  My curls were everywhere!  There are very few pictures from the ceremony that my hair looks 'normal'. A veil would've been a huge distraction to the ceremony.  I agree though- Tropical Imaging does amazing stuff with veils.  Who's saying you can't get one for the pictures with them?!?!  It's your day.  Do what you want.

    • 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.
