30 days till take off for us!!! I'm sooo excited & also a bit freaked out too in that I won't have all done that I need to &/or final decisions made!! lol

Everyone's attire is bought, tailored, etc. I go for my 2nd dress fitting in a few days..so basically it's 'small' things like a guest book (is everyone taking one of these?? or?), what to give the flower girls to hold instead of flower petals (I love the 'here comes the bride' sign however I can't seem to find any!) and a few other minor things YET they all seem to add up in my mind! lol

I don't see it gettting any easier EXCEPT I keep reminding myself of what other brides have said upon their return, DON'T STRESS! lol :)

( 46 days) eiiik!!!!!! you are right... it is soo hard NOT to stress.. but we do have to remember what the other brides who have done it already keep saying.. :)

30 days until we leave too, 32 days until we say I do!!!!!! Who are you flying with?  We are headed to the Majestic Colonial too flying out of Toronto!!!!!

 

Not sure if you're on the MC brides FB page but Maria had that sign for her daughters wedding, you could try messaging her to see where she got it... if you are DIY you can make it!!!!! It is super easy!!!!!

 

I am starting to realize time is ticking and I still have A LOT to do... oh well... I can only get done what I can get done... I am thinking an AFTER the fact planning thread is more likely what BDW will get from me though!

Hey Kristi! :)

If all else fails, i know there are a few ladies i found on etsy, that will write on the sign whatever you like.. so what you could do is fign a style of sign that you like on etsy, and then contact the seller and see if she would custom make one for you to say what ya want... :) like instead of saying " Thank you" that it says " Here comes the bride" :)  worth the ask anyway :)

And Congrats to you girl on your upcoming big day! :)

No, ours is just the symbolic, it was too much trouble to do the legal in the Dominican

    • 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!!
