Recommended Posts

good evening, fellow BDW.com brides..today's planning post is ALL ABOUT BARGAINS!

 

ok, so i'm ALL ABOUT A GOOD BARGAIN!  ANYTHING $1.00 or less is my kinda bargain.  we ALL know how expensive DW can be..with the travel and all, it can get to be expensive..not nearly as expense as an AHW but still expensive...so, i'm ALWAYS looking for a deal...

 

so today's deal..i'm almost scared to even type it...for fear that ALL of you will go into SHOCK..ok, so here it goes.

 

i found luggage tags..for 40 cents/ea at Michaels..yes, ladies..40 CENTS..that's right folks..way under a dollar..needless to say, i'll be going to ALL of the Michaels in my area searching and collecting luggage tags..take a peak below.  but beware!  you will be SHOCKED!

now that the shock has warn off...i'd like to show you some great $1 deals also found at michaels today...these are what i like to call my Bob Loot... my honey is in AWE and LOVE with ALL THINGS BOB MARLEY...so, to find these items for $1 and the bob marley book at the 1/2 price book store (clearance section) for $2.00 was a GREAT FIND!  i bought three of EVERYTHING..one for my honey, one for my son and one for my dad...a part of me feels like i just might have to include some of these items (if not all) in the survival kits because what's jamaica without Bob?  uhm, the Bahamas?!?  lol! 

 

HERE'S A PEAK AT THE BOB LOOT!

I LOVE the luggage tags! What a great find, Did they come in a pack together or sold individually?!

good afternoon, fellow BDW.com brides..its that time again..

 

for today's planning post, i'm going to talk about postcards.

 

so, i want to have postcards available for my guests upon arrival but i also want to put a unique postcard with it welcoming our guests to jamaica.  i've decided i'll purchase authentic jamaican postcards and maybe even some stamps upon landing..i'm pretty sure i can score postcards at the airport.  i'm thinking i'll give each guests at least three post cards along with my personal DIY postcard with a handwritten message for each guest or couple.  here's a peak at the personal card.

postcard back.JPG

 

the back includes our logo and even lines for the guest's name and address..i'll likely put the hotel's address there so it looks 'authentic'...  msnwink.gif

 

 

alright, so today, you guys get a bonus post..because i'm dying to show you my latest DIY project..i like to call this..something is brewing in Jamaica..and what's brewing, you might ask??  well, LOVE, of course AND coffee...take a peak.  please keep in mind, this is a DRAFT..i have to perfect the label and getting it to affix to the bag..but i wanted to share. 

 

coffee bag front 2.JPG

 

each bag will contain enough coffee for each guest to enjoy one pot of blue mountain coffee (found at marshalls for $6.99/bag).

 

coffee bag back 2.JPG

 

i used the martha stewart stamp for the back (gotta love martha - all of her scrapbooking stuff is 25% off with an online coupon at Michaels).

 

coffee bag again 2.JPG

 

well, that marks the end of today's post.  i hope you all like the coffee favors as much as i do...  cheesy.gif

 

until next time, happy planning!!

    • 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
