I tend to way overpack and found myself having to remove things from my suitcase!! My FI is a light packer so most of our OOT stuff and other wedding things are packed into his suitcase!  Its so hard to know what to bring and what to leave behind!!

I'm officially packed and ready to go!  We're off to the airport at 3am tonight for our early morning flight!  Can't wait!  In the end, both myself and my parents each have a 50lbs suitcase filled with OOT, decor, steamers, etc.  Then both myself and my FI each have one suitcase for clothes, cosmetics, toiletries, etc!  I honestly thought we'd end up with 5 suitcases in total but we managed to get it all in with 4, and there's some room left in the 4th!  Here's hoping we haven't forgotten anything!

 

Good luck with all of your last minute planning!  Can't believe our time has finally come! :)

Congrats to all those leaving soon!  

 

We leave on the 14th and I've been off this week with the flu, this is the worst possible time to get sick!!!  I just started feeling better andstarted packing today, I've got one whole suitcase filled with OOT bags, wedding decor and accessories.  I've got half a carry on filled with the rest of the breakable stuff.  I also picked up my wedding dress today, our spare bedroom is filled with wedding stuff and suitcases, it really feels real now!

Yeah I totally agree, packing seems to be consumed by wedding stuff. I'm 2 suitcases in and both are full of OOT and wedding stuff and I haven't even packed our CUPS yet!!!!! lol Thank goodness we get 6 suitcases between myself, fiance and son!!! I hoping to get son and fiance in one suitcase too.... fingers crossed wacko.gif I keep telling myself two more weeks, two more weeks and we'll be outa here!!! Cannot wait, especially after having to redo my DIY programs THREE times... Our officiant changed, then I put prelude twice, ahhhhh!!! All good now, fixed and packed!!! Congrats January Brides we made it!!!

Can't wait!  We'll be in relaxation mode soon enough!  

 

Good luck with the rest of your packing!  It will all come together in the end!  I had my FI weight every single suitcase multiple times just to be sure!  I would hate to have to repack or rearrange at the airport! I always feel awful for those people!

 

Safe travels and see ya on the beach! :)

    • 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!!
