That's awesome and I'm glad that you had a good time.  How did you FSIL respond when you asked her to be in the wedding?

It is so cute, FI gets mad because I wrote out the card I bought for her telling her what she means to me and how I would love for her to be my matron of honor and he's like what am I supposed to do I wanted the card to be from both of us, and I said well, you can write more just to Chuck, and he's like you took all the room *it was a blank card that had 2 more blank pages* but he was being a dude.  And I said you'll figure it out.  So she starts laughing at the end and I said what's funny and she said what Tom wrote.  I look at the card and at the end it says Chuck Ditto.  LOL

 

As she said she's ridiculously excited.  It helps to have someone besides FI and myself to be excited because she inspires us to keep doing the quarterly newsletters and everything.  Even if people don't end up coming we find ourselves enjoying every minute that we spend planning this wedding together.

  Canadiangirl - I think the red TTD is so pretty! I love the idea of doing a colored dress. I bet it will look awesome in the pics! I wish I could talk my FI into doing a TTD session :(

Hi ladies!!

 

We are hoping to have our second (church) wedding somewhere in Cancun sometime in Summer 2012! I'd like to get it as close to our anniversary date (6.25) as possible. As far as planning, well, I've already planned and canceled two traditional church weddings shots.gif so I have the dress...I have bridesmaids, but not sure how many can actually make it to Cancun...no theme really except teal.

 

Honestly, after planning two traditional weddings, one thing I'm looking forward to is keeping this one simple and focused - it's about celebrating our love after all we've been through, surrounded by the people that mean the most to us, in a beautiful, amazing place where everyone can relax and enjoy themselves.

 

Glad to be here girls! Hope to announce our date soon! Going for site visits in August. We know we're visiting Gran Caribe - any other suggestions for a Catholic Cancun wedding?

Welcome Via!  I can't imagine planning 2 traditional weddings and then taking on a DW.  

 

Sharon thanks so much me too...

 

Coco, she really is awesome!  You'll get to meet her if you guys make it to the wedding :)

Okay I need some opinions. We all know I am not a DIY person!! This is my 2nd attempt at creating luggage tags from Vista Print.  As you can see the lines on the back dont seem to have all the same spacing either!! They are a bit small but I am thinking maybe get some kind of colored paper & put in between the front & back to make it a little bigger. Not sure if that would look ok. I still have to get the tag holders too.

I also created Maraca tags. For these I was just going to punch a hole & tie them with some kind of stringribbon. They look a bit cheesy though. FI thought they were lame & laughed!

Thoughts? Should I just bag trying to do DIYvista print projects?!? LOL!

    • 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!!
