So.......I'm taking a break from packing, and thinking to myself "What do I still need to do?".  I'm pretty sure I have everything all ready to go.  I'm doing my eyebrows, going to the bank, yadda yadda on Monday.  Then, I have this thought--I still haven't heard from Kalena to set up an appointment to meet with her when I get down there!!!  We are leaving WEDNESDAY.  My wedding is in less than 7 days.  So now I'm kind of having a panic attack.  I mean, we're going to be on the plane and flying at 6A on Wednesday.  I know I won't hear from her tomorrow. That leaves 2 days to try to get contact her.  Aaahh!!  In other news, my wrist is still not fully healed from breaking it in February.  They have taken off the cast now, but it's in a splint I'm supposed to keep on for 3 more weeks.  They told me I can take it off occasionally now, so I figure I'll just take it off for the wedding and while I'm down at the pool.  Unfortunately, the cast just came off, so there went my plans to work out and get tan.  That stuff is totally not happening.  :( Luckily, I'm so close to leaving, I kind of don't care anymore.  I just can't wait to go down there.  We are staying for 10 days, and I feel like hubby is going to have to drag me home kicking and screaming.

Might as well just use their stuff and forget about the hassle. *eyeroll*.

I saw the list of linens etc but picking out linens and centerpieces etc still come to about $200/table. So might as well go all out and get super gorgeous fancy with it.

Hey ladies- I need some ideas!  My fiance still hasn't got the groomsmen gifts yet!  He is buying them nice leather sandals for the wedding and that is part of their gift, but we can't seem to think of something else!  The groomsmen are our age except my brother who is 15 so barware or a cigar holder is not exactly appropriate for him (I'm sure he wouldn't mine but my parents would hahaha).  So any ideas???

Wow, Wow, Wow... I'm so excited for you!  I think your plans for the split is a good one, just be careful.  If I don't get a chance to lob back on before you travel.  I wish you and your guest traveling mercies.  Have a DYNAMIC, BEAUTIFUL AND FAB WEDDING!

Hi Ladies-

So we had our ceremony on Friday (still down here until Thursday) and what everyone says is true...don't worry about things so much on the front end. From the spa services to the wedding planning to the ceremony, everything has been beyond perfect!

 

I will write a long review when I return..happy planning guys and try to relax, it all works out!

How about a money clip with their names or initials engraved on it? Or personalized cuff links for their suits? There are some nice gifts that I found on thingsremembered.com, its a store that we have around my house that you can get gifts engraved for special occasions. Not sure if you have a store located near you but you can order things right from their website also.

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
