I was terribly nervous!  Actually over-did the wine a bit and don't remember some of them!  Was very happy that you can't tell in them!  haha! 

My biggest suggestion would be to bring a close friend/family member with you...having my sister with me was the best decision that I could have made...she helped calm my nerves, hold me together (she actually did my hair and make-up), helped with waredrobe changes & malfunctions, reminded to me to purse my lips and arch my back...the experience would have been great, but it made it even better sharing it with her...it was a big confidence boost too with her comments about how things were going to look...plus she added input on picking outfits which was a HUGE help!!!

I TOTALLY agree with you! I had my sister, sister-in-law and good friend with me and it made all the difference! They made me feel beautiful, confident, and I knew they were helping me to look the best I could! And Missy...we have the same wedding date in Jamaica! woohoo I am planing on giving him the pictures in Jamaica right before we tie the knot! I agree that this is the best surprise I have ever done for him!

How ironic!  I had them put into a book and either my brother or my brother in law (sister's hubby) is going to give it to him before the ceremony too!  I have a note on the book that says "I'll see you at the end of the aisle, I'll be the one in the white dress and the blue panties with your name on them!"  I have blue underwear that have my new last name on them...so I thought it was fitting!  :)

Sweet! My BD pictures (I had 78 of them) were put into a photo box with one of my pictures on the front with my name and date. I will leave it with a note for him. One thing I do know...I am making sure the photographer gets his reaction! :)

    • 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!!
