Not a destination wedding, but still a beach wedding! :)

 

We have our:

 

Ceremony booked,

Reception site booked,

Rentals booked,

Officiant booked and paid for,

DJ booked and paid for,

Photographer booked

Bridesmaids & Flower Girls dresses picked out

Videographer booked

 

Musicians about to be booked

Transportation to be booked soon

 

In the process of getting flowers (Very picky about my colours so it's taking a while :P)

 

Have someone I'm going to get back in contact with for invitations, but I think it's too soon for that yet :P.

Have the stuff to do our wedding favours, and have started collecting stuff to do our own thank you cards :).

 

I have a dress in mind but am going to go dress shopping once more before I decide for sure.

 

I LOVE that we had over a year to plan it! It has given me a lot of time to bargain shop, and take my time to find vendors, etc.

 

I think the only 'main thing' we haven't figured out yet, is who is going to do our cake :P.

I'm in a bit of planning funk.  :(  Wishing I had more idea of who was actually coming and that people would book instead of waiting.

dHi, I'm getting married at Beaches Turks & Caicos on June 4, 2012!  I have been enjoying all the posts on BDW and think there are so many great ideas...I'm starting to get overwhelmed with which ones to do.  Anyone have tips on how you are organizing or saving the the ideas so you can access them later?

 

So far I have:

Date booked

Hotel booked

Group rates secured

Save the Date sent electronically via TheKnot.com

Wedding website done on theknot.com

2 Dress bought (and at home!).  One of the dresses will be for a TTD photo shoot. But not sure if this is the dress I want.  Thinking i might want to get a sexy knock off for the shoot.

Photographer booked (TTD)

  

Lots more to do.  Happy planning ladies!

Congrats and welcome Mary.  I let the forum save it for me because I comment on the forums that most interest me and that is a way that I can track back to it.

You've lost your planning Mojo as JQ would call it!!!! It happens to all of us I think, the head count thing is a real downer as you just want to know how many to plan for!!! Keep your chin up, you will get your mojo back!!!!!

I have a file called "wedding" on my computer in there there is a ton of sub files, I save a LOT of pictures that inspire me ie. centrepieces, aisle decor, cakes, etc.  I also have a word document with notes to myself in regards to the forum and ideas that don't have pictures or something "-check out Bride's Planning thread"  It also helps to subscribe to threads that inspire or interest you that way you can refer back to them closer to that stage!!! Good luck!!!!

Congrats everyone!

 

merrylee - I feel the same way :( 

 

Last night I went to Target & tried to start buying for my OOT bags, which I find impossible since I really have no idea how many people. Everyone says YES but only 6 have booked(we mailed 52 invites).

So I made my first OOT bag purchases last night. I got 5 mini aloe gels and 5 mini lint rollers. (.99 cents each) I was standing in the travel section for what felt like an hour and could not decide what to buy and thought what would people use. When I got home & put them in a pile I thought it was lame! LOL! I thought...5! I guess I should maybe go with 20?? 10?? I have no idea!!! UGH!

I figured every time I go I will pick up 5 more.

And don't even ask me about the bags...forget it! I cant decide what kind and will definitely wait on some kind of head count for them.

 

MTruvillio - I am clearly overwhelmed too! I also have a folder called Wedding with files, pics, docs saved but I think I saved too many esp when it comes to oot bag items.

    • 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.
