The Garter

Recommended Posts

Had a conversation with the lovely FI last night about the garter toss.  I personally DO NOT want to do this, I am really not looking forward to having him under my dress in front of everyone.  Also, because it is a destination wedding  most people are traveling with companions so there will be very few singles so I do not really see the point. 

 

Is anyone else keeping the garter toss and bouquet toss in?

hmm I honestly havent thought about this yet. I will probably just do it for the heck of it & make it fun. Curious as to how many others do or dont do this as well.

i'm not sure if i'll do either one but...i'll have a garter...mine will likely be a sports themed garter since my fiance is a maniacal Baltimore Ravens fan..i kinda like the idea of giving the bouquet to the 'wife' of the oldest couple in attendance..or maybe a grandmother of the couple, etc...since it is destination..i think 'anything goes'...  cheesy.gif  R~

I didn't even think about giving the bouquet to the oldest couple in attendance, that is nice. 

 

I still don't know how I'm going to get over my embarrassment that my FI is going up my dress.  I know him, he's going in head first embarrest.gif

You have 20 singles?  Sorry to be nosy but just wondering, are they getting single rooms or are in bunking together?

 

I have a few singles who are kind of dragging their feet on booking their rooms because they don't know what to do.

Were going to do both but rather than inviting just singles well invite everyone to try and catch the bouquet/garter. We've also decided to attach gift cards (maybe to the spa for the girls and a round of golf for the boys) to entice people to try and catch them!! This way we get the traditional and fun moment but its not awkward for guests!

What we did was we sent out RSVP's, and for any of the singles that RSVP'd we kind of grouped together and sent out messages telling them that if they want to save a few bucks (it was 400 less to bunk up with someone) that they could room with someone else, really, how long do you spend in your room when your at your tropical paradise?? Everyone asked to be bunked with someone if there was room, we even had  groups tripple up.  We grouped people with similar interests and went from there, most of ours knew someone in the "singles" pool so that made it easy as well.

    • 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.
