Diva' s planning thread with pics!! Excellence Punta Cana March 14, 2011

Recommended Posts

The ceremony is 9 days from today, and we leave in 6, Hooray J


First of all thanks to all you ladies for the ideas and tips I received on here.  You guys are all awesome and I feel like I am taking a little piece of my “desties†with me since I would have never been able to pull it off without this site.  I never thought this day would come, but the year has gone by SO fast.  I joined the forum in December 2009, with so much confusion and so many questions, and everyone was so helpful clearing things up and calming my anxieties.  So without further ado, here are my goodies!


Sorry the pictures came out different sizes...


Dress and shoes for the welcome reception on Saturday night.  I found the dress at a cute boutique in New Orleans during Mardi Gras last year












My rehearsal dinner dress and shoes.  I actually wore the same outfit for our courthouse wedding in December. I figured it was an appropriate time to break it out again J




My hair flower.






My reception shoes. I plan to put “I do†decals on the bottom (thanks VDay bride for the idea)



My second pair of reception shoes, for when the heels become uncomfortable J






My BM gifts from Tiffany & Co., I got them charms that fit their personalities.  They will also each get special canvas bags with the OOT contents in them (thanks to Bostonbride2009!)





MOH tanks.  Instead of one MOH and one BM, I chose to have 2 co-MOHs.  These are cute DIY iron ons from Ebay




Bride hoodie from VS along with a cute t-shirt I found for the plane ride home!







My engagement ring. Asscher cut custom design



And my eternity wedding band, also custom with rounds and princess cut diamonds turned sideways.



His wedding band.  He doesnâ€t wear jewelry so he wanted to keep it simple with Tungsten Carbide.





 My STD magnets. Sent them out March 2010




Our pre-travel packet sent in January.  It includes our newsletter the Team Davis Tribune, along with the formal invitation, luggage tags, and a packing list.





Our guestbook from the engagement party.  Full of photos of us and signatures from guests at the party.  I also had ladies sign them at both of my bridal showers.






Our wedding guestbook, one of my girlfriends made it for us!






Some of my OOT bag contents:


 The "oh sh*t kit"



Front and back of our door hangers, Spanish translation booklets, and welcome booklets




We also are going to have organza bags filled with dried lavender on the ceremony seats for guests to throw as we leave down the aisle as husband and wife.  An alternative to bubbles or bird seed that smells WONDERFUL!



Wedding stationary: programs, itineraries, and menu cards from Precious Paiges out of Austin, TX. She does an AWESOME job!





Thatâ€s all for now…I will post a review and pics when we return!

Very nice!! Awe I can't wait to start working on mine. Today I'm going to buy some stuff for our OOT bags. Are you going to post any templates? I really like the layout of your Tribune letter as well as your packing list.

Islandgirl: The packing lists I will probably be selling when I return. I actually got them from a bride off of here and I should have an extra pack.


As for the template, I will post it from my work computer probably upon my return as well since I have a short week this week and it will be hectic at work! I only have a Mac at home and publisher doesn't transfer over well...

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
