I just started on my DIY jewelry adventure.  I am making a bracelet for each lady, I wanted to do barefoot jewelry but I don't even know how to begin doing that.  Love yours. :)

LOVE you ladies :)  Thank you so much for the compliments on my dress!  Sharing this with you all makes it so much more exciting.

 

Also, I've been DIYing on this lovely day- Here's attempt  #1 on barefoot jewelry- I've been making jewelry since I was young and so got out my beads- not my colors but it's just to inventory supplies.  Plus I might wear these for fun!  (took the pic on my phone- sorry it's bad quality)

I suggest that as soon as you know that you block your locations so that you do not have to worry.  With MP being able to conduct 8 weddings a day prime locations can be gone quickly

Great choice of course but just an FYI:

 

I'm blocked for the Arrecifes Terrace which is the Brazilian Restaurant @ 6:30p they only have one outside location so unless you plan on having your dinner inside or earlier IIiana will advise you that it's taken.

and as I'm reading your responds, the FI is behind saying " See I told you it is just like Chima's" LOL

 

So he is having me email IIiana tonight to have her set our reservation... He is so funny... Thanks again

Well remember a couple of post back (wow there's been so many lol:-) where I was a little sad because (although necessary to order) I had just ordered our memorial picture charms for my bouquet?  Well it's here.  Humbled and blessed to be able to still be present on this earth, my heart is heavy but I am so glad that I choose the vendor as she was so sweet to work with and we have a beautiful necklace which will also be a bouquet charm (it's removable) for our wedding day.

 

Here is it:

YaYaYa,

 

I'm too elated as Chelsea from Red-i emailed me to say that the bracelet that she so graciously, awesomely & uniquely created for me (as an addition to my barefoot jewelry) is on its way.  This piece will complete my 2 set's of accessories for our TTD session (I got the okay from my photog to do a wardrobe change.).  I'm so excited as Chelsea is so amazing and fun to work with. I know she thinks I'm insane because as soon as I receive one order I place another.....It's only because after I see the piece I get another idea. 

 

Once my dress come in, I am thinking of having Chelsea to create a simple necklace and earrings for my wedding dress.  ohhh too exciting.

 

Thanks Chelsea I am so Red-i wink.gif

I know you posted the actual invitation a while back (which is what inspired me to go with MIB :)) What thread is it in? and did you end up posting the end result too? I've missed a lot!

We have 41 nights booked for our Jan. wedding which is good but we had 4 couples book elsewhere and they are all staying 5 nights at MP, which would put us at the 60 nights, which was our goal..kinda frustrating!

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
