Lisa's after the fact 6/21/2011 Planning Thread!

Recommended Posts

I love the idea of just getting his initial!  We were planning on getting our names tattooed but I started having second thoughts because I thought it would show a little under may ring and I didnt think it would look good (my band is very dainty).  Just his initial would work out so much better!!!

A special thank you to Tammy and those behinds the scene who keep this site running as well as fellow members who keep it running. My wedding would not have been what it was without you.


Without further ado, my planning thread.


About us:


My now husband, Omar, and I met at a party the night of my high school graduation on June 21, 2002. Omar proposed on May 25, 2010 and here we are now, married nine years to the day we met.




Our rings:


Mine, both Tacori:



Omar works with his hands and needed something durable but insisted on diamonds so we got him two rings. An indestructible Tungsten to wear to work as well as one with diamonds for fancier days:





I tattooed O's initial on my ring finger soon after getting engaged. He LOVED it! It's discreet as you can't see it when I have my rings on.

You look gorgeous! I tried on that dress and it was one of my favorites, but I didn't look nearly as good as you did in it! I wanted something more flowy too. Love your jewelry and your hair-do! Everything was just beautiful! What fun! Thanks for sharing!

Lisa thanks for this great thread!  Can I ask a few questions?  How do the real touch flowers look?  Also, care to share the chair and table rental cost at MDC?

    • 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
