Thank you for the advice! And welcome all 2013 brides!!!
I have finally decided on the DR. We decided we wanted to go back because you cannot beat that baby powder sand beach. I still have dreams from when I went in June of this year. The only thing is, we will not go back to where we stayed in June, I did not like the food at all and the rooms were a disaster everyday.
I finally narrowed it down to The Hard Rock, Excellence, Riu, or possibly one of the Dreams Resorts. I will be making my final decision next week. I am stickin with my January 2013 timing though. I know it is right after Christmas but I have already informed my "A list" that we are definitely going away and would love for them to come. I will be sending out an informal information card that says something like : Natalie and Chris are going away to get married and would love for you to join in on this special occasion in January 2013 in the Dominican Republic so start saving and get those passports, more information coming soon....! :-) It is just a thought at the moment. LOL. I may just wait to do save the dates once we get prices on these hotels for January. Thoughts?
