    Hi everyone,

     

    I'm a newbie to this forum and newly engaged (1 month on May 26th). My fiancee and I have chose a destination wedding in Punta Cana DR (considering Grand Palladium Bavaro).

     

    We are excited to spend the week with a small group of our family and friends (26 people including us, bridal party and guests).

     

    I'm excited to be part of this forum and look forward to getting feedback from all the other brides 2 be and newleyweds.

     

    Thanks & happy planning

We are getting married at the Majestic Colonial in February  you can check out a great facebook group with a lot of information on the resort such search "majestic colonial brides" on facebook.  Also this site has a TON of information on Punta Cana weddings but if you nee anything just ask!!! We booked our photographer today!!!

                Congrats on your engagement!

                 

                Here’s a few things I’ve learned from wedding planning so far:

                 

                1. Wedding colors are tricky.  I picked hard-to-find colors (coral and teal) and it seems everything comes in more basic colors like light blue, royal blue, navy, purple, pink, orange, green.  Just a thought to consider when choosing colors.
                2. Dance lessons!!!  This has been the MOST fun of preparing to get married.  Expensive…but SO worth it! 
                3. It IS possible to get an amazing but less expensive dress.  Keep searching.
                4. There is a reason people go with traditional bridesmaid dresses…they are easy to match with the rest of the bridal party.  I went with just regular gowns from Nordstrom’s and had to find out the hard way NOTHING comes in that color (coral!!!)
                5. DO NOT write anything about your registry on Save the Dates or Invitations….TACKY!  I thought this was a given (this advice is in every wedding book ever written…), but I’m finding tons of people are making this mistake and it just rubs guests the wrong way.

                 

                Hope this helps!

                    Jennifer your colour comment shocks me! I find coral and teal EVERYWHERE! I am obviously in the wrong town because we are having a hard time finding navy anywhere!!!!

                     

                    Enjoyed your tips though!!!!
