10 Months!!!!  I need to get on it....I feel like it took me soooo long to find the perfect resort and date, that now I don't know what to do next!?!  Have you guys already sent out STD cards?  I really wanted to have engagement pics done before I sent them; so I could make my website!  Whew...so much still to do!!  Good luck planning!  This forum has really saved my life.  Everyone on here is so helpful!!! :)

Its coming so quick!!  We sent out STD about a month ago. Sounds like most people we invited arent coming (which is what we wanted haha, but felt obligated to invite them).  We are just keeping things really simple.  It does feel like there is so much to do, but there is still time.  Next up dress shopping!!!!

My Save the Dates went out this week!!  Everyone seems to love them so far!!  Now, I am just anxiously awaiting prices to be available, and then hopefully drop.  I have been hearing that I might need to wait until 6 months out to get a reasonable package price for my guests.  I'm also hoping this gas fiasco doesn't effect our trip too much.  How is everyone else's planning going? :)

We sent our STDs out in  the beginning of January so as to give the guests enough time to save.  Worked a TON on the wedding website, and we are inthe process of updating since we chose a TA (thank God!) and just sent in the group contract to reserve a block of rooms at our resort.  To the ladies sending out the STDs, when are you sending out your invites?  I don't think I put enough info on the STDs and kinda assumed/hoped that people would just keep an eye on the site and I could update people that way - which is NOT the case.  I think we are going to send out a brochure-type announcement with the resort and TA info since Vistaprint is always running specials for free ones.

I think we will send out our actually invites in July or August.  The TA we chose to work with offers us 50 free invitations with a group booking so we will take advantage of those.  They are pretty nice and will include all the information from the TA and about the travel and best of all they are free!!

I sent out my invites's recently (I think they started arriving on Valentine's Day) so I think everyone  should have them now.  I had three friends (that I knew were planning on coming) book their deposits, I haven't heard anything else about the rest though! I'm not expecting a lot of them to come, you never know though!

 

I had sent out some STD's from Vistaprint with my Christmas Cards.  I was initially planing on sending out the real invites a little bit later- but Air Canada Vacations "adjusted" our group price and said it may go up again in the future, so we hopped to it.

 

We got an actual "quote" back in October, I wonder if it varies between travel providers why some of you are still waiting.  So we are guaranteed the price they quoted us (those people who have put down their deposit) and once their final prices come out - if it's lower we get that price, and if its higher we get our quoted price.

 

So far we have about 15 people booked (immediate families and so far all my close friends :D) Honestly if this was all that booked (maybe a few more of FH's good friends) I would be perfectly happy!

 

The only people I'm wishing would come are my grandparents, my grandma would love to come, but my grandpa is being stubborn.  I'm hoping I can change his mind.

    • 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.
