Recommended Posts

We are not having an AHR so I can't help you in regards to that.  We have decided to do OOT bags for our guests and decided against doing favors.  We thought that because people were already getting the OOT bags we thought it was unneccesary.  I guess its just whatever you are comfortable with doing.

Ya...we are going to be cups already in there so I guess that with the bag and all the goodies would be considered favor....maybe if I find something cute and inexpensive I'll swoop it up but if not I won't stress!

I am also doing small OOT bags but I am going to order the maracas for the reception & place them on the plates. I figure they will count as favors along with the bags & are pretty cheap. Really none of my guests have been to a DW before so I dont think they will know or expect anything.

Same here.  We are doing OOT bags and fans on the chairs at the ceremony.  I think it's enough.  But if I run across something adorable I just might have to LOL.

Our AHR is going to be very casual.. but that being said if I have something left in the budget I may do something tropical-themed for everyone who couldn't make it. Thinking of using vistaprint to blow up a few of the best pictures on banners and stuff of the actual wedding, and probably have a projection screen playing the wedding video?

 

Good times, good times.

Ya I was thinking the same thing...It's going to be very casual at my FI family Cabin (which is more like a mini compound minus the weird paligimy thing) It's where we spent our first weekend and where he proposed so it seemed like a no brainer but it is kinda rustic so I was gonna do beach theme even though its a cabin and get a projector a dj etc...may just BBQ though it's more of a party than a reception really but i wanted to bring some of  the reception into the event that's why I was thinking about a small favor or something....what do you guys think? sounds like as far as the destination is considered I'll be fine with the OOT bags and I was probably gonna do fans for the girls on the chairs or something! lol the guys would never be caught dead to use em no matter how hot it is!

So funny and yet so true.  Mine will be a waste but it will make for a cute picture before guests get seated LOL.

    • 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.
